Most other SEO tools focus on providing you with data. LOTS of data. Usually much more data than you could possibly sift through even if you were doing SEO full time. Unfortunately, they don't put much effort into telling you what you can actually do with this data. Generally that's because most big companies are paying $10,000/ month to an SEO agency who can then interpret the data and tell them what to do.
CanIRank attempts to replace the human intelligence of an expert SEO with machine learning -- "computer intelligence". As it turns out, computers are very good at sifting through enormous amounts of data to detect patterns and correlations, and they're not constrained by preconceived notions like "we've always done it this way!", or "this is what all the gurus are recommending!". Best of all, computers can complete their analysis in a matter of minutes, and work all month for less than the cost of one hour of a good SEO consultant's time.
By layering CanIRank's computer intelligence on top of all that great data, we can provide you with clear, actionable advice, not just raw numbers. And we can do it quickly and at a reasonable cost. We hope that CanIRank will help level the playing field somewhat for businesses who don't want, or can't afford, to pay $10,000 a month for an SEO consultant.
