When you're ready to see your ranking reports for first time, you click on Run Report link. Within minutes, you're reviewing your rankings across 18 search engines and directories. You can choose to view ranking reports by domain, by keyword, or by search engine, or you can create custom reports.
Then, once a week (or once per month, depending on your account type) WebRank will check your rankings and generate your reports automatically. Plus, you can choose to run reports "now," at any time, by going into your Administration area.
With WebRank, you can customize service to suit your needs. Do you want to receive reports by e-mail? Would you rather view reports online? It's possible either way.
The Email Notification Rules feature is also very handy, because it lets you choose when to receive e-mail pertaining to your rankings. For example, let's say that you've just created a new page. As soon as page hits a 1-30 ranking, you can choose to be sent an email notification.
Once you've gotten your rankings and if they're not quite what they should be, click on "Increase My Rankings" for a comprehensive resource center that offers information on search engine marketing for do-it-yourselfers or for those who would rather hire a professional.
Also, their "Software Integrated Help System" will check your account periodically and send "smart" messages that will help you with your search engine marketing efforts. This system is designed particularly for beginners.
Another very interesting part of WebRank is Doorway Domain Manager. Here's how it works. You decide on a domain name (with help from some handy online tools), then buy it for $19 a year through WebRank. Then, you use their step-by-step wizard to create doorway site. Within 48 to 72 hours, domain is live and accessible. You're then prompted to submit some of your pages through free AddURL pages or pay inclusion programs. Then, WebRank will begin notifying you when pages have been indexed and what their rankings are. Can't set up a Web site much easier than that!
