Hi

I believe Google has recently started displaying different results depending on the case of the keyword.
e.g. the first page of results for "hotels London" is different to "hotels london".

In my case for "xyz London" I am position #5 and for "xyz london" I am position number 14.
Rank Tracker does not allow me to track those two positions.
As 35% of my terms will need to be tracked in upper and lower case then this is a fundamental weakness.
Can you fix this?
(from my programming days this shouldn't be too hard)

Hm... the problem is that almost 99% of all users want to get results for case-insensitive keywords.

However, we'll try to add a case-sensitive/case-insensitive checkbox somewhere in project's settings as soon as possible.

Thanks for the suggestion! ;)

Thanks.

Well this is a new issue. Over in SEObook community even Aaron Wall hadn't been aware of it yet.

Oh, I see... THANKS for letting us know. :wink:

Just as I promised, we'll do our best to add this feature into one of the next versions.

Soon as you can would be great.

for a term similar to "hotels london" I am in position 4 in Google for "Hotels London" (which I was trakcing in Rank Tracker) and am number 14 for "hotels london".

That equates to about a 10 x difference in website traffic!

We're already testing this new function. So we all hope you'll see it in about a week.
Thanks again for your great suggestion!
