Working at an agency, we set out to find the best tools we could get. We needed something that could keep up with clients from Dell down to Bob's Pickles, but nothing lived up to our wildest SEO dreams. So we created Nozzle, the rank tracker we couldn't live without.
At SEO.com, Derek (VP of Tech) and Joe (Lead Developer) are tasked with evaluating any and all rank tracking software.
We have by now tried many options including Conductor, BrightEdge, SEO Clarity, and Moz, but walk away unsatisfied.
Nozzle is incorporated with the goal of building the best rank tracker in the world.
Nozzle's first customer is acquired!
Nozzle collects 1 billion data points in a single day
Nozzle launches multiple scheduling options, the first ever in the industry.
Nozzle participates in the Techstars Kansas City accelerator program.
Nozzle releases Chart.js 2.0 and trends #1 on Github and Product Hunt. Developed by our own Tanner Linsley and good friend Evert Timberg, it's now faster than ever, offers 8 flexible chart types and is even more extensible.
Public Launch Day!
