If you aren’t rank tracking your position, you aren’t beating your competition

With the Ranking Tracking (also known as the Position Tracking tool or SERP Tracking tool – yes, too many names for one too, we agree), you can monitor your national, regional, and local search engine positions for any keyword!

Whether your website has already been getting high positions in search results or has just begun reaching the top of the SERP, you should always know where it is in the SERP Tracking/ranking. The Position/Rank Tracking tool allows you to track your website’s ranking for target keywords in the Google top 100 organic and paid results. Daily updated data shows you how optimization efforts help your keyword rankings progress in paid and organic search over time.

The tool allows you do perform rank tracking on the most wanted parameters of the world’s top websites:

  2. Search volume for keywords ( preferably Google’s Data )
  3. Ranking URL info
  4. Rank Type ( image, rich snippet, etc )
  5. Rank ( 1-100)
