Anyone try wordze.com?

Has anyone tried WordZe (wordze.com)? If so, how do they compare to wordtracker (wordtracker.com) or trellian (keyworddiscovery.com)? Are there other services you are happy with?

Wordze.com

I did give this service quite a test run and found that for general Keyword Research it left much to be desired. It does have some nice features like automining Digg info and compiling competitive environment reports but thats about it.

great feedback - regarding the competitive market data, was it worth the cost? I don't think we'd replace wordtracker, but might look at adding to it with another service should it be worthwhile...

Worth the cost...

I don't think it was worth the cost at all. The type of competitive data it furnished is readily available; top competitors, back-links, age of domain stuff like that. I can actually give you run-down of exactly what the control panel offers:

Keyword Research Tool: Database is pretty small and the search tool offers a limited refinement/filter utility. Search modes are Exact, Broad and Any. However use of any mode besides exact produces long lists of unrelated terms.

Import Keywords: Import your existing KW lists and use those terms to find additional terms.

Historical Keyword Trends: For the last 6 months. Rarely does this tool return any data.

Dig for keywords: Inspects websites based upon your input KW and returns information like related phrases, frequency, etc.

Expand Dig Keywords: Passes the data from the Dig report through their KW database to find additional phrases and search counts.

Wordrank: Looks at the search results for a given KW and returns link information (including rate of accrual), in title hit, in domain hit and some basic demographics.

Download Top Searches: Download weekly or monthly search activity reports.

FAQ: Gives explanation of the various tools.

Hope this helps

Tremendous help. Saves me time and the cost of a trial. Thanks.

If they offer a trial signup and see if it works for you. The important thing is, if you like it, use it. I have seen so much crap out there which is why, in my opinion I just stick with old faithfulls

There is a video located at wordze.com/videos/KeywordResearch/

That shows how to use the refinement commands that AdHocDoc skipped or did not know about.

AdHocDoc,

I don't know what keywords you're searching for, but I've had nothing but good experiences with Wordze. I've used WordTracker and KeywordDiscovery, and Wordze is by FAR my favorite. They have a very efficient API (free with any membership), and their results are always very relate for my searches.

And no, I'm not affiliated with them in anyway, and I'm a normal paying customer like everyone else. I just think it's a very good system... definitely worth the money.

New poster on SEW, yes, but the information I said remains valid.

Yep, that's my blog. Are those kind of links not allowed on SEW?

This thread is getting some legs I see!

As I see that Wordze does not have many or any users from SEW here are some quotes from other users of the service. Some of them you may know...

"Your results are incredible compared to wordtracker..."
Lee Price, ebasedevolution.com

"I'm giving Wordze a try and so far I'm really impressed. If nothing else it's about a million times faster than the Overture tool and that is extremely helpfull to me."
Brian Knapp, blackbeardseo.com

"...This is a great tool and I'm already getting a lot of use out of it."
Brian Knapp, blackbeardseo.com

"...you''ve done a pretty cool job with this. Lots of excellent research tools. Very nice. I will be staying with you..."
Kenneth Thompson

"You're onto a great thing there. We'll be sure to help spread the word."
Dave Collins, sharewarepromotions.com

"..the whole Wordrank area of Wordze kicks serious ass!"
Scott Reyns

"Note that we already use WordTracker and KeywordDiscovery. We're letting the WordTracker account lapse."
Dave Collins, sharewarepromotions.com

"It's the best keyword service I've tried so far, so keep it up. I especially liked the super fast speed and the huge amount of keywords it generates, and the ability to download the keywords in Excel format as well."
Richard Fredriksson

---

As ryanmcmaster noted. Give it a try and see if it works for you. The tool is being updated almost weekly with new services and options, and we offer a GUI and API that is great for newbies or advanced users for whatever your needs are.

The service is new as we opened back in the end of Nov 06, but it is rapidly growing to be one of the more popular tools available.

Beyond that I am the person that developed the service, and komodo9 is one of my many users that like it a lot as you can see!

You really need to offer a free trial for this tool. You wont compete effectively without this and I for one, wouldn't even entertain paying for a new tool without at least giving it a test run.

Get brians (and others) testimonial on your home page. Even better, send it to the high fylers in search and let him use it for free for a limited time. for a testimonial of course

Thanks,

I have been doing some of that.. It has been crazy as so many people have been joining the service, then sending in millions of ideas and wish list.. I'm almost upgrading or adding 3 or more services, 2 times a week with new ideas.

Im getting ready to put out a couple new services, as well as a "free search" and a desktop version that is being developed.

Thumbs up very helpful

I'm new to SEW (and SEO for that matter)...was referred to Wordze by SEOmoz...and while my inexperience may keep anyone from trusting my opinion about Wordze as a tool, I can say that Levi knows how to do great customer service. I emailed back and forth with him several times the first week that I used the tool and he was fast, helpful, and patient. We found a couple of bugs and he fixed them within the hour...I love the fact that you can now download KEI information into excel. Thanks Levi.
