Honest KeywordXP Review
I was excited about trying out KeywordXP as I’ve purchased some great products by Paul Clifford in the past. Unfortunately, there was one thing that caught me off guard…the license agreement:
KeywordXP employs various methods including cookies to track your use of their product and reserve the right to use and sell any anonymous data they collect on keyword searches, volume, etc.
I have a major issue with this…I love purchasing great tools, but I don’t want my use tracked or usage data sold.
I’m requesting a refund on KeywordXP and unable to write a review on how good or poorly the product performed as I can’t get past the notion of my search activity being tracked whether anonymous or not.
What are your thoughts on software / app developers tracking your activity?
Think about the implications? You invest a bunch of time researching your niche and then all of your search activity can be sold to a potential competitor.
I also feel it is a slight conflict of interest for a software developer whether it be KeywordXP or any other Internet marketing tool to ask me to trust them to use their tool(s) and then sell my usage data.
Sorry Paul Clifford and KeywordXP, I’ll have to pass on this tool for now.
Maybe in the near future Paul will give users the ability to turn off tracking.
