Rank Checker's New Features

Internet Marketing Ninjas.

Rank Checker.

Thank You for Updating!

New in version 1.8.40...

  • changed minifier script so extension now is smaller that before
  • removed outdated code which was used to check user permissions (the site no longer requires a user account to install this extension)
  • changed code so RC loads only on demand (decreases memory footprint), previously it was heavier also had to change scheduled tasks behavior
  • updated “ALT” + Click behavior so it tries better when locating correct serps page. In the past sometimes it went to a wrong page because it did not account for the ads & how search engines may show varying numbers of results on each page. It is quite common for Bing to show as few as 6 organic results on the first page of results on highly commercial terms, but in some configurations search engines may show as many as 13 or more results on some page.

Use SEMrush to Boost Your SEO Profits

Competitive research tools can help you find a baseline for what to do & where to enter a market. Before spending a dime on SEO (or even buying a domain name for a project), it is always worth putting in the time to get a quick lay of the land & learn from your existing competitors.

  • Seeing which keywords are most valuable can help you figure out which areas to invest the most in.
  • Seeing where existing competitors are strong can help you find strategies worth emulating. While researching their performance, it may help you find new pockets of opportunities & keyword themes which didn't show up in your initial keyword research.
  • Seeing where competitors are weak can help you build a strategy to differentiate your approach.

Enter a competing URL in the above search box & you will quickly see where your competitors are succeeding, where they are failing & get insights on how to beat them. SEMrush offers:

  • granular data across the global Bing & Google databases, along with over 2-dozen regional localized country-specific Google databases (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States)
  • search volume & ad bid price estimates by keyword (which, when combined, function as an estimate of keyword value) for over 120,000,000 words
  • keyword data by site or by page across 74,000,000 domain names
  • the ability to look up related keywords
  • the ability to directly compare domains against one another to see relative strength
  • the ability to compare organic search results versus paid search ads to leverage data from one source into the other channel
  • the ability to look up sites which have a similar ranking footprint as an existing competitor to uncover new areas & opportunities
  • historical performance data, which can be helpful in determining if the site has had manual penalties or algorithmic ranking filters applied against it
  • a broad array of new features like tracking video ads, display ads, PLAs, backlinks, etc.

Past Updates

New in version 1.8.16...1.8.30...

  • Some members reported having a "white screen" issue after a recent Firefox update. This was apparently caused by the rank checker window being too big on some computer set ups with dual monitors or some other such setups. We now check the browser size and use it to ensure the RC window size is smaller.
  • Updated for new Google SERP layout change
  • Added support for Firefox 8 - 34

New in version 1.8.7 ... 1.8.15 ...

  • Updated Yahoo! rank data extraction
  • Added support for Firefox 5 (still works on later versions of FF4, but no longer supports FF3.6 or 4.0.1)
  • Added support for Firefox 6 & 7

New in version 1.8.5 ... 1.8.6...

  • Some users who had personal history turned on & were logged into their Google account while searching had garbled stuff from some of the past visits data show up in the CSV experts.
    • if that was happening to you, then you can go to Rank Checker's Options panel and select Optimize database
    • if that wasn't happening to you, then you shouldn't be impacted by this update

New in version 1.7.2 ... 1.8.4...

  • Did you lose your status bar in an upgrade to Firefox 4?
    • Firefox version 4 does not have a status bar turned on by default, but you can install Status 4 Evar to get it back.
    • altarnatively Rank Checker's button should appear at the top right of your web browser
  • Updated to work with new Google search result layout
  • should now work a bit faster on small computers (up to 10%; on fast ones this may be unnoticed by users)
  • some new added features:
    • presets are now renamed to keyword groups
    • open preset dialog now select first preset on open
    • also users can double click on preset name to open it
    • on CSV export (on some systems) if user/os forgets to add .CSV extension to a file - this is done automatically
    • more polite "scheduler is running" message
    • column sorting on the processor window

New in version 1.6.6 ... 1.7.1...

  • Updated label from Live to Bing
  • Shifted from pulling from Live Search to Bing API
  • Extension is compatible with FF 3.6.
  • Export to CSV functions updated. This should resolve minor export errors some users were having when exporting saved data to CSV
    • If you have any export issues in the future it would be best to upload your Rank Cheker .sqlite database file to your server and then alert us to the problem you are having.
    • the Rank Checker sqlite file can be found at

      c: / documents and settings / my username / application data / mozilla / firefox / profiles / someweirdstring / rankchecker.sqlite

      Application data is typically a hidden folder, and someweirdstring is a random string like br6qcmz3.default

  • URL and keyword limit now set to 100 characters.

New in version 1.6.4 & 1.6.5...

  • Extension is compatible with FF 3.5 (which should be coming soon).
  • More precise Google's regional targeting (in now adds gl=US/UK/etc. when scrapping data from locally targeted versions of Google).
  • Options window now has one more section - "Maintenance"; there are two buttons:
    • "Optimize DB" - this optimizes keyword database performance a bit (clears empty space, reindexes database keys).
    • "Empty DB" - this simply deletes the database file. (so that user doesn't need to locate FF profile directory by hand and to delete rankchecker.sqlite).
    • If you experience some weird things like presets don't save or scheduled tasks don't run - you first should try "Optimize DB" and if that doesn't help export and save you data then try - "Empty DB".

New in version 1.6.3...

  • It now clears the display before showing new rankings (as we got a lot of user feedback about not liking the lack of transition on that front which was part of the last update).

New in version 1.6.2...

  • Fixed bug where Yahoo! Search was not showing results in Yahoo! US for some users.
  • Fixed some internal optimization issues
  • Added delete warning (delete keyword, delete preset, delete schedule)
  • Changed "clear preset" dialog
  • When loading, old positions are loaded
  • Main window size is persistent
  • Fixed broken scheduler (well, the scheduler was actually working, but it had one interesting "feature" (can't remember why): it wasn't updating keyword positions if they were already checked the same day).

New in version 1.6.1...

Support for Firefox 3.1

Past updates include...

  • Working with Google SearchWiki on or off
  • De-personalizing results by default
