    • December 12th, 2013 at 6:10 pm

      Oops had a little bug! Please check your email for an update or re-download it from the download page :)

  9. 12.12.2013

    Every time I try to download I get:

    “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.”

    Look forward to trying it though!

    • December 12th, 2013 at 6:11 pm

      Refresh the download page, links expire after a certain amount of time!

  10. Darren

    Looks great, but I’ve not been able to use it since all I get is ‘unable to login’ on two separate attempts at downloading. Is this a known issue?

    • December 12th, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    Well it was a no brainer for me to buy this course, after going through all your articles over the few months I have been following you I realised this training will be 100% to the point and more importantly you know what you are talking about :)

    Thanks Matt

    “must dash got some training videos to watch”

  12. 12.12.2013

  21. 12.12.2013

    Cool now our niches are being sent directly to you…

    Just kidding! :D I very appreciate this share!

    • December 12th, 2013 at 6:06 pm

      Thanks Denis!

      Nothing gets sent back home :)

      • December 12th, 2013 at 10:03 pm

        Well… that sure is an idea though! haha

        • December 14th, 2013 at 5:12 pm

  22. 12.12.2013

    Please I could download the tool

    How does a video like this? with dolls…

  23. 12.12.2013

    I’ll download and see how it works

  24. 12.12.2013

    Oh wow! how many steps do I need to take to get it and even like that I couldn’t find a download link without the system trying to charge me.


  25. 12.12.2013

    Congratulations Matthew!

    I can’t wait to get home and see what she can do.

    You the man!


    • December 14th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

      Your the first person to refer to it as a girl. I’m not responsible for any sexual injuries you incur!

  26. 12.12.2013

    Looks good – I guess the email contact system could be used for requesting link removal as well. If you needed to get rid of spam links.

  27. Tim


    That is a very nifty idea, nice work!

    Thanks for releasing it too!

    All the Best

  28. 12.12.2013

    Erm…..what is it?

  29. 12.13.2013

    after a long waiting and here it comes!

    by the way, i’ve read through every word on that landing page and found a small error: the free gate will end on Jan 1st or May 1st??
    or maybe I don’t read it carefully, hah..

  30. 12.13.2013

    Thanks for sharing with us this stunning tool!

    We will be tuned as well for a more comprehensive and paid edition of it.

    Do you have plans of releasing more features in a premium paid edition? Or maybe some WordPress plugins that does similar tasks? The possibilities are endless!

    I would personally like to see a paid version on WordPress so we can install it for our clients and let them get exposed to some quality SEO tools.

    • December 13th, 2013 at 1:00 pm

      I dont think a PHP environment would be able to handle whats going on behind the scenes :)

  31. 12.13.2013

    Thanks for Free Tool Matthew!

    Got the course too and love the way you break everything down to simple easy to follow steps!

    Invaluable course! Learnt a lot! Just got to put it all into action now!

    Thanks again!

  32. 12.13.2013

    I have downloaded it twice. Uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Just says please wait and wont start?

  33. 12.13.2013

    Downloaded the Software Matt, Yet to try! Thanks for keeping it free!

  34. 12.13.2013

    Congratulations on the launch, Matt. Nice to see you delving into application development. I’m looking forward to seeing how you monetize this!

    • December 13th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

      Thanks :)

    • December 17th, 2013 at 11:30 pm

      He has hasn’t he?

      Matt very clever how you’ve executed this, keep up the great work!

  35. Labinator

    Thanks Matt for such a useful tool. A very clever marketing strategy as well to boost the visitors of your website. I truly wish you all the best with that and hopefully you can offer a paid version of this tool in the near future. A web-based version also would sound appealing.

    Our Quick Review on the Tool:

    1. Easy to use with a great self-explanatory interface.
    2. It does work only for a portion of sites. It shows nothing on many websites i tried to enter. Any website who is blocking bots and backlinking checkers will surely be excluded. It is still though extremely useful in several other cases.
    3. An amazing tool for testing purposes.
    4. The idea that you offered it for free makes it unbeatable compared to other paid online tools.

    Thanks a lot for the great share! We’ll be tuned for your future updates.

    Our SEO agency will start recommending your tool to our clients as well. I am surely many beginners up there need something like that to get started.

    All the Best!

    Why there is no Licorne AIO support?

  37. 12.13.2013

    I was able to download, but throws ERROR while opening :( Did it nearly 4 times but always the same!

    Matt could you help me?

  38. 12.14.2013

    thanks man…

  39. 12.14.2013

    Hi Matthew, I discovered you recently and wanted to thank you for your great blog. Helped me already a lot.

    Cannot wait to test the tool :-)


  40. 12.14.2013

    A very useful application. I used to lurk your blog but finally had to join in the conversation today by posting how great the app is. And yes as others said, it’s great to see you dive into application development as well. :)


  41. 12.14.2013

    Login now :) all fixed ^^

  42. 12.16.2013

    Man thanks for the awesome tool! digging into now

  43. 12.16.2013

    Hi Matt,

    I having problems to install the tool in Windows 8, if I execute the installer, simply nothing happens except that Windows shows before you install an app.

    I tried also executing the app as administrador, but nothing changes.

    Any thoughts?

    • December 17th, 2013 at 10:30 am


      Can you look in the install folder in program files and email me a copy of the log file

    • vietnamrum
      December 17th, 2013 at 10:40 am

      I have it running on windows 8.1 64 bit. It works fine.

      Maybe your Windows Installer is having a bad day not starting.
      Reboot the computer.

      • vietnamrum
        December 17th, 2013 at 10:54 am

        Administrative tools then Computer management gives you access to event viewer logs then Windows logs / application

        When the exe runs it creates an msi file which uses the MsiInstaller and installs the program giving you the option of where to install etc.

        It registers success/failure with eventIDs in the Application section of windows logs.

        Under services and applications is Services.

    I have had a quick look at Rankcracker, it looks great.

    I associate the caricature of you and your laptop on your primary site as part of your logo.
    You have kept the same colors etc in Rankcracker, I think it would look good to have the caricature there as well.

    Might be an idea to have a poll on your site asking Logo with or with out.

    Perhaps have the Title Rankcraker – a MatthewWoodward product.

    Suggest you add Rankcraker to your SEO bes tools list. 8-)

    Look forward to your future articles.
    Congrats on the passing 10k mark and the summit awards

    Great site.

    Many thanks Vietnamrum.

    • December 17th, 2013 at 10:28 am

      Thanks for the heads up :) I’ll be updating the page over the next month with a bunch of new stuff ^^

    • December 18th, 2013 at 10:42 am

      Thanks Charles, i’m pulling it in 2 weeks though so get a wiggle on :P

      How about we have a crate of beer in Manchester?

  46. 12.18.2013

    Good day, Matt! I shared this in twitter, but I still could not get access to it. What do I do? :)

  47. 12.18.2013

    Hey Matt.

    It’s an interesting tool, but it’s a bit too black hat style for me.

    I’ve just posted a comment on David M’s latest blog about “nice SEO”.. It’s time you and him had a good cop/bad cop challenge! :-)



    • December 19th, 2013 at 9:11 am


      Who is David M? I searched for him/that blog post but couldn’t find it – got a linky?

  48. 12.19.2013

    Hey Matt,
    The tool looks really promising. Just one question : Do it pick up also links from pbn sites protected by the plugin Spyder Spanker?

  49. 12.20.2013

    Hi Matt

    The link that is emailed is not working properly, I’m getting this message
    “The requested URL /exclusive-tutorials/ was not found on this server.”


  50. 12.20.2013

    I just signed up and it takes me to a 404 page stating the following:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /login was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

  51. 12.20.2013

    Hi Matthew,

    I signed up but the download link seems to be down?

    “The requested URL /login was not found on this server.”


  52. 12.21.2013

    Why did you decide to go with images for your sales page (including all text as images) instead of actually writing the text in the page?

  53. 12.24.2013

    I’ve downloaded your software and paste my backlink comptitors to Rank Cracker. The software was running smoothly and fast.

    Thanks Matt for give your software FREE!


  54. Dave

    Hey Matt,

    Reading through the comments I take it that this software is windows based, on can it be used on a Mac?

    Thanks for your great blog.


  55. 12.25.2013

    WoW!!! I Love this Video and Tool !!! Hope We Can get another tool which can submit our backlink to the grabbed link

    I have sent you a message via – could you give me a heads up please?

    Hi Matt,
    I can’t seem to get access to the download in any way. I’ve already tweeted this post, tweeted the landing page, signed up for the newletter on, and confirmed my subscription along with logging both in and out a few times. Whenever I try to access the download page it simply says:

    Sorry, it appears that you do not have access to this content.
    You’re seeing this message either because this content is not yet available to you (or may have already expired).
    If you haven’t yet signed up for this content, then click here to get access.

    Downloaded the rank checker app, but it won’t let me use it – after entering my email it always tells me “unable to log in.” Too bad – sounded like a cool too.

    hi! matt i purchased your premium tutorial i have one question what actually does your private rank cracker seo tool ? what is main purpose ? and why its important for us

    if we are already have GSA or scrape box then still we need rank cracker ?

    • November 10th, 2014 at 4:31 pm

      Follow the tutorial and you will see – it doesn’t do anything that GSA or ScrapeBox does

  76. 11.13.2014

    Thanks for great stuff, Matt!
    Good luck for you :)

  77. 12.12.2014

    Great job matt.

  82. 6.12.2015

    I can see the merits of a program like this. Is there a Mac version in the works by any chance? That would be a super bonus if I don’t have to use the d*** Parallel or VM just to run this.

    Thanks Matt! I downloaded “Rank Cracker” once before but did not know how to use it. For some reason, I must have over-looked the instructions. Going to give it the old college try one more time.

          It seems there is like, a 20 second delay between the registration taking place and the access to the products being granted which I need to take a closer look at, but if you login to your account now it should be perfect!

  90. James Mascorro

    Love this tool Matthew. Thank you for putting it out there. We have had it installed on our machines for a while now without using it, and after seeing it pop up in so many chat groups we are in, we decided to run it and it really is a fantastic piece of software. Cheers Mate!

    No indication whether this is a windows tool only? I downloaded the zip file and extracted – setup.exe. Is there a linux version of your software – thanks.

    • January 19th, 2016 at 3:44 pm

      No sorry it is windows only currently although I plan to port it over to adobe air this year to fix that!
