Note: This article contains references to Advanced Web Ranking Desktop, a version that is no longer under active development. 

It’s been just a few weeks since we redesigned Advanced Web Ranking Desktop, and we are already rolling out a new and improved version, thanks to your great feedback.

Keywords from Google Webmaster Tools and AdWords keyword suggestions for customized locations are just some of the goodies you’ll find inside.

So let’s take a look at what’s new in AWR Desktop 11.1:

Keywords from Webmaster Tools

Following the integration of Keywords from GWT in AWR Cloud, we received many requests to add the new research tool also to the desktop application. So, starting from this version of AWR Desktop, you’ll be able to easily find the most profitable keywords that are already driving traffic to your website.

To use the tool, simply navigate to the Research -> Webmaster Tools menu and synchronize your project with your GWT account.

Customized locations from Google AdWords Planner

You can now get AdWords keyword suggestions that are relevant for a specific city, region, or country. To do this with AWR 11.1, simply define the customized locations you are interested in from the Research -> Keyword Research -> Google AdWords Planner tool.

Introducing the Custom Mode

AWR 11.1 now allows you to choose the menus and tools that you want to use on a daily basis. You can customize the access to various sections of the application by using the new mode selector.

What else is new in AWR 11.1:

  • Google Analytics Pages

You can now see the number of visits, average time on site and bounce rate of your domain split by pages, as well as the revenue that each landing page drives. Simply click on the Analytics – Pages view to see it in action.

  • Projects list export 

We added the Quick report function to the Projects screen, which allows you to generate a CSV export with the overall progress of your AWR projects.


That’s about it for now. I hope you have enjoyed reading this article. You’ll find more goodies inside the new version of AWR Desktop, waiting for you to try them.

As always, I am looking forward to reading your thoughts shared in the comments section below.

    1. Hi Alexandre. The data retrieved from GWT is stored in the desktop application database on each update. However, for the time being you can only see data computed for a period of 30 days in the UI. In the future, we plan to implement new views to use the historic GWT data, and any suggestions are more than welcome 🙂
