How many times have you tried searching your target keyword phrases into Google, just to find out what position your website is currently being ranked at in the major search engines? I know I used to check my rankings practically all of the time, and I’m assuming some of you are probably in the same boat. It can be rather annoying, frustrating, and most of all – time consuming. There are much easier ways to check your rankings than by doing it by hand. That’s the reason I wanted to make this quick blog post.
Now, I personally use Market Samurai to keep track of multiple keywords for all of my websites and blogs, but sometimes I just want to do a quick search without loading up any software programs.
The good news, is that I found a really cool free SEO tool that lets you check your current search engine rankings in Google, Yahoo, and Bing for any given keyword phrase in just a couple of seconds flat!
It’s a free Rank Checker by SEOcentro.com
I decided to choose just one keyword for one of my sites, so you can see how it works. Here is a screenshot of the form you fill out to get your rankings:
See how simple it is? Just add your keyword phrase along with the website / webpage you are checking the rank of. Below are the results that were generated:
As you can see, this free SEO tool gives your ranking positions in the top 3 search engines, as well as gives you some ideas for other keyword phrases (which really helps a lot if you’re doing SEO)
When you scroll down a bit further, it also shows very specific results of the top 40 positions for each search engine. It actually lists the top 40 results (exact URLs) for Google, Yahoo, and Bing so that you can click on each one and further investigate (or spy) on your competition. A big thank you goes out to SEOcentro.com for having such an amazing & quick SEO tool.
They actually have other tools that are just as cool, so check them out as well! One of them is the page keyword analyzer – http://www.seocentro.com/tools/seo/page-keyword-analyzer.html
So, if you don’t have enough money to buy Market Samurai yet, some of these free tools should get you by for a while. However, when you start tracking dozens of keyword phrases, and multiple sites / URL’s, it might make more sense to get an all-in-one software like Market Samurai.
Anyways, try out these free SEO tools out and let me know what you think! Post your comments below.
