1. Outperform your competitors with better keywords

Wordtracker is a commercial service that helps you to find the best keywords for your web site. The best keywords are those words and phrases commonly typed in by your potential customers, but which aren't used much on your competitors' web sites.

In other words, if you optimize your pages for keywords that your potential customers use a lot, but your competitors haven't thought of, you win. IBP helps you to find these keywords.

Quickly access Wordtracker within the easy-to-use IBP interface

The new IBP version 9.5 offers easy access to Wordtracker's keyword suggestion tools. Just enter a keyword and IBP will get the keyword suggestions from Wordtracker:

Full Wordtracker integration

You don't have to go to the Wordtracker web site and you don't have to login to a Wordtracker account. IBP will do it for you.

Quickly separate the wheat from the chaff

IBP does much more than only finding keyword suggestions and the number of searches.

IBP automatically calculates the KEI, IBP gets the number of search results, the top result on Google for the selected keyword (with Google Search API support) and the Google PageRank of the top ranked page.

That allows you to quickly find the best keywords with the highest searches and the lowest competition:

High search volume + low competition = your chance to get top rankings

If you want to get high rankings on search engines, then keywords with a high search volume and low competition are the best keywords that you can get. It's relatively easy to get high rankings for these keywords and you'll get a considerable amount of traffic through these keywords.

IBP helps you to find these keywords quickly and easily. Remember that the new Wordtracker integration is only one of many more great new keyword tools in the new IBP version.

In addition to Wordtracker, IBP can use the keyword tools of popular pay per click search engines, IBP can analyze the web sites of your competitors to find the best keywords and much more. If you haven't done it yet, download the new IBP demo version now.

How Google handles hacked sites

"Hacked sites are no different: lots of spammy/hacked sites will try to install malware on users’ computers.

"I've been keeping my clients top ten rankings for almost three years with IBP now!"

"Don't you guys ever sleep? NO other SEO software updates itself on such a constant basis, and that is exactly how I've been keeping my clients top ten rankings for almost three years with IBP now.
