I am happy with my move to WP Engine especially on a performance and convenience level. The service has proved to be solid with consistently fast speeds, excellent uptime percentages, and an extra piece of mind thanks to their backup and staging features. Unfortunately, I’ve found their support system to be less than stellar which is disappointing as they have all the other aspects going so well for them. Regardless, I still think WP Engine is one of the best Wordpress hosting solutions around and you won’t find any other providers who will give you the same value on the dollar, month-after-month. I foresee our website being hosted by WP Engine for the extended future and would highly recommend them to any prospective buyers as the value provided with their service is well worth the inconvenience of dealing with their mediocre support.
In the end, I found Rank Ranger to be a better rank tracking and SEO analysis service than SheerSEO by a longshot. It features an appealing visual interface, additional features, and more search engines supported. On the other hand, the Bing rankings were not correct (similar to SheerSEO) and the pricing was a bit higher than I’d like to see therefore I can’t recommend Rank Ranger in most cases. If you just want to use this service for tracking and analyzing Google rankings then this service should suit your needs. If you care about Bing/Yahoo rank tracking then I would not recommend investing in Rank Ranger as you’ll be given incorrect data to work with. Either way, you can sign up for the free 30-day trial and give it a try for yourself with no credit card required.
In the end, the SheerSEO service was too inaccurate for me to recommend it. It’s Google rankings were fairly consistent in most cases, but its lack of Yahoo & Bing accuracy coupled with the occasional Google ranking miscalculation made it disappointing. The pricing model could some serious tweaking since the default plan’s weekly updates & one domain restriction provides much less value on the dollar than I expected.
I found the SheerSEO service to be a useful resource to check Google rankings during my free trial period, but I will not be spending my money on a paid subscription once the trial is over and I would not recommend spend their money on a subscription. Since the free trial does not require a credit card, I do think it is worth signing up for the trial period regardless so you can test our the rank tracking service for yourself with your own data.
