Speed testing workflow

To get the most accurate results, we've carried out the testing on a just installed shining-new Windows 7 operation system. The tests were run on AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+, 4 GB RAM.

Besides, to ensure equal entry conditions, we used a quick, fresh proxy for each of the tests run on each of the tools. As IBP uses Internet Explorer to access search engines, proxy settings for all IBP tests were entered through this browser.

So, check out what the comparison has shown.

Note: As not all the tested tools provide you with time stats and results count, we had to time their work with external time keeping tools and count the number of results manually. That is why proof screenshot were provided only where it's possible.

Test 1. Rank checking with default settings

The first test compares rank checking speed.

Using each SEO tool, we've checked website rankings for 50 keywords in 3 search engines. The safety settings (such as proxy rotation or delays between search engine queries) were left untouched — in their default state.

Test 1.1. Rank checking with minimum safety features

In the second part of rank checking speed test, we're using each SEO tool to check website rankings for 50 keywords in 3 search engines once again. Yet this time the safety settings in each tool were minimized to increase the check speed.

Test 2. Backlink research: speed + number of found backlinks

In the third test, we've charged each tool with finding the maximum possible number of backlinks pointing to a website. The search safety settings were left unchanged.

Test 3. Website structure analysis: speed + number of pages

The last test deals with checking website structure; this means that each SEO tool was to find all pages of a given website in the minimum possible time. Market Samurai and IBP SEO software have no such functionality at all, so the test was run for SEO PowerSuite's WebSite Auditor, WebCEO and Advanced Web Ranking. The search safety settings were left unchanged.

  • Checks rankings faster than any of the 4 other tested tools
  • Proves the most resistable against search engine blocks
