I do not track my keyword rankings that closely, except in a broad way. And that’s to know whether my overall organic traffic is up or down. A few years back, I have listed a bunch of free Google rank checkers but realized later that free rank trackers do not work.
It may work at times when you randomly check it but free rank checkers are not something that you want to rely on especially when you are managing a lot of SEO campaigns or personally want to track hundreds of keyword rankings.
Meanwhile, if you want to track only a handful of keywords then the best way to track them is to do it manually. For instance, I use the Google Chrome extension SERPTrends when I want to track individual keywords without actually tracking.
That’s right. SERPTrends is just a lightweight tool that shows the ranking changes of the listed URLs within the search result itself. So when I don’t want to track any keywords, I just deactivate the extension and it’s that simple.
On the flipside, if you want to track hundreds of keywords and is looking for a premium rank tracker tool then ProRankTracker could be your best choice.
Today, I’m reviewing this nifty rank tracking tool that allows you to track the rankings of your keywords on almost all the major search engines on the planet.
And I’m happy that this is a sponsored review as otherwise, I wouldn’t have come across this less-known (oh, at least I didn’t know) SERP tool.
As of now, I’m using my complimentary SEMrush account for all things SEO (including rank tracking) as it’s an all-in-one SEO suite. And as I mentioned earlier, I use SEMrush’s Position Tracking to monitor the overall organic traffic trends (like this) and since it supports “Competitors” I will know whether it’s a broad-based change or not.
However, SEMrush’s SERP checker is not as comprehensive as ProRankTracker. Moreover, SEMrush is good for tracking only Google SERPs. So if you want to track your keyword rankings on all search engines then you will need a premium rank checker and ProRankTracker is worth a try.
