Honest solution for SERP tracking with really good user interface. They offer a simple service with some bells and whistles such as user permissions. They also include a few other features that just complement (but are not really necessary). Overall they have helped a lot with reporting and keeping tabs on SEO work done for customers.
Pros : Good interface which works Simple and focused model Generally cost-effective
Cons : Some features not necessary They should aim to go deeper in core offering instead of widening scope.
We tried out Positionly for a couple of weeks since we were looking for seo software which was web based, easy to use and just does what's important without paying for features we don't need. Positionly is ok but a lot of features are only important on their feature page because when using it they don't work as good, example: - They offer an option to add/save notes to your project. But the styling of the notes will be stripped and you are not allowed to use any line-breaks. Oh and you aren't able to edit once submitted. Not sure about you but I like to keep my notes up to date instead of having to read over dozens and dozens of notes. - Positionly claims you can also track your pages but when you enter keywords related to your pages your website score will go down. For example: if you have 6 pages and the index and you want to focus on 3 keywords per page you will have 21 keywords. You will now receive 'suggestions' to lower your keywords because it's to much. They recommend 4-6 a page.. - The backlinks feature was the most important feature for us but they claim to update it daily, support says they dont update it daily but weekly but in the terms it's stated they are updated once a month. And to top it off; results on the backlink page often displays a backlink as missing/removed but when you look at the specific page results it will be listed there as active...
Pros : - Looks great - When you are not a member yet it looks like the best software in the world!
Cons : - Features are not as they seemed out to be. - Often incorrect results - A lot of docs in in russian/ukrian (some language like that) - A lot of times steps you have to take doesnt make sense because often times the buttons have the wrong label (as in 'Save report' while they mean, Next. Or 'Complete' when that button leads you to step 2 of 3..)
Easy to use, powerful, responsive customer service, daily updates, cool charts - all you need.
Pros : Easy to use and very efficient to get value from. Low price.
Cons : Mobile app sometimes crashes.

Positionly’s good-looking and easy to use dashboard, well maintained blog and membership perks certainly go some way to separating them from their competitors. The variety of price plans available offer an competitively affordable proposition for many.

The first thing I like about Positionly is that they allow you to track your competitors rankings. This is a very useful feature for SEO agencies as clients may want to see how their website is comparing vs their competitors. Additional bonus that I like is Positionly will tell you if your average position is better or worse than the competitors...

Its wealth of report and keyword options and the ease with which you can sign up using other accounts certainly make it a service you should sign up for and sample – particularly if you’re concerned about the progress of your website and your competitors.
