If this thread takes this direction it might be better suited in the site reviews forum. I’m gonna keep an eye on it.
As to the subject: I think the idea is good but the execution isn’t quite right yet. I assume you have a clear target audience for your site (probably SEO fellows for checking rankings), so in my opinion, from what I assume an SEO specialist would look for, this application is still somewhat invonvenient to use. If I was an SEO guy and wanted to check the ranking in different search engines I’d rather be interested in the plain numbers than to see the actual search pages with all menus and ads etc. What I mean is, if I input my search term, give me a simple overview over the rankings rather than three full websites.
- Upon entering the search term, provide just the results of the actual search, no ads, no website navigation menus, no redundant empty spaces.
- Upon entering the search term, provide some kind of table/statistic that basically just returns the websites/domains and the rank for each (like, search results reduced to the bare minimum), without any clickable links or whatever.
- Provide two inputs, one for search term and one for the specific domain and tell people immediately at which position they are (possibly with also telling them who is right before them and in the first x places) rather than having them to click through the pages of each search engine to find the entry.
Additionally, one reason why people aren’t coming back could be that the site is just not as attractive as it could be. The design looks a little random and not very professional yet.
