Information about Plugin Rank, product screenshots and brand assets
Plugin Rank is an SEO tool for WordPress plugin developers to help them monitor their plugin rankings in WordPress.org search results.
I've worked on improving the copy in the readme.txt for my WordPress plugins, to surface the plugins higher in wordpress.org search results. Appearing higher in search results is a great way to increase the amount of users installing your plugin, which can in turn increase conversion to your paid product. But making actionable changes to achieve a goal is made a lot harder if you don’t monitor the results of your work.
How do you know if your plugin is ranking higher after you have made changes to the readme? Check the search results manually? Remember to do this regularly? There’s a better way, and it’s Plugin Rank.
Plugin Rank tracks search results daily for a large number of keywords and the plugin results. It also tracks plugin readme changes daily, as well as plugin statistics.
The Plugin Rank database is a great source for analysis of the plugin landscape on WordPress.org

Remember when I told how my Simple Giveaways (@wpgiveaways) plugin ranked 3rd place thanks to @PluginRank? After 2 months, I went from an average position of 8.5 to 2.6! My plugin now ranks as 2nd for giveaways and 3rd for other keywords. Thank you @polevaultweb!— Igor Benić (@igorbenic) January 22, 2021
