Unless your wanting to Pay don’t waste time

The write up on this product seemed like I was going to get at least something good for the free part but it doesn't give you anything for free. This is one of the most expensive monthly local SEO plugins I have seen.

Excellent SEO tool

Amazing, it's definitely not your average SEO plugin, allows access to a complete all-in-one SEO tool Suite with ranktracking, keywords, competitor spying etc etc and project management, lots of tools and details but easy to use you read the guide. Upgrade is $15 definitely worth it.

Best SEO Tool so far

The best seo tool i have used so far and ive had a few. Despite the name its any SEO not just local. Easy to follow guide so impressed I upgraded to the paid version which is better than my last well known tool and costs far less. I prefer to login at the localadworks site rather than using via the plugin you need the screen estate with a seo tool like this.

Wish I’d used this earlier

Excellent tool! We are a local based service company and we needed something that would help us get more traffic, this was installed by our web developer over a year ago but I didn't look at until three months ago but we already rank for 20 keywords, prior to this all our traffic was paid for and it cost over $250 some months, last month we got 378 organic visitors and it's increasing, busier than ever and we only spent $80 on adsense. Definitely recommend this to reduce adsense spending and Im not "technical" at all!

Awesome – still the best

This is an awesome plugin, we have recommended this for our clients for some time but it just keeps getting better - the plugin is iframe so that doesnt reflect the continual upgrades, best thing is the SEO guide and user interface is even better than before and always up to date, My preference is to subscribe/login/use at the actual site ( LocalAdworks) because its easier than a Iframe window IMHO but in terms of power,upgrades/value I can't fault it, great job guys 🙂
