Something about this site seems suspicious. Anybody want to point out why? From their webpage:

[h=2] Grow your audience.
Sell your books.
Take control of your marketing.
[/h]AuthorRise combines simple marketing tools, sophisticated analytics, and proven growth strategies into a simple step-by-step process.
The business of being an author is hard.

We’re here to help.

Even though they have three price levels, it's "Free forever when you sign up before May 22nd!"

It's not a scam. It's a tool for self publishers who are willing to pay somebody else to do social media tracking and book rank tracking so they can spend more time writing.

That said, the free version is essentially useless except for newbies. The "professional" version isn't much better - most self publishers would be up to Prolific in no time.

But it's not scammy as far as I can tell. I see no red flags. (If you have a publisher, THEY should be doing the stuff this site does, ideally, but a lot don't).
