Knowing where exactly in search results (Google search results that is) your website is located for a particular keyword or keyphrase is something that a lot of webmasters would like to know. Those of you who up until now checked it manually will be pleased to know that there’s actually a free tool, a free Google search ranking checker that can check website ranking automatically, for up to 10 keywords of keyphrases at a time.
Google search ranking checker tool by SERPLab
What I’m gonna be talking about today is a free tool offered by SERPLab. I came across this tool completely by accident when reading comments and I’m surprised that more people aren’t talking about it because it’s one of the more useful tools out there. So how does it work? In short it takes up to 10 keywords (or keyphrases), it takes the URL of your website and then using magic it goes through the first 300 Google search results checking to see if your website is mentioned there.
On the image above you can see results of a search ranking check that I ran for this site, my own pride and joy. Little bit further down below you can also find a video of me showing how this ranking checker works. Out of the 5 keyphrases that I typed in for three of them I’m actually in the top 300, for some even in top 10, crack open the champaign. 🙂
Aren’t Webmaster Tools offering the same thing?
Most of you probably know that we can check how we rank for keywords using Webmaster Tools. Keyword ranking list for keywords found on our websites can be accessed from Search Traffic >> Search Queries. The problem with Webmaster Tools is that it doesn’t allow you to check for keywords or keyphrases that you want to check. If you’re trying to rank for a certain keyphrase and nobody either searched for it or no one reached far enough through search results for an impression to count it won’t be detected by WT. Search ranking checker tool by SERPLab doesn’t have these types of problems.
