Five best Google keyword rankings checker tools
Below, we’ll compare the five best Google keyword rankings checker tools across seven different categories:

At the outset, SERPWatcher makes it clear that it’s not just about tracking your website ranking day-by-day. Instead, it tracks overall progress on its creatively-named “dominance index”. The associated metrics provide critical outputs for SEO.
SERPWatcher comes bundled with a set of tools such as KWFinder, SERPChecker and more. Three packages are available:
- Basic ($49 / month)
- Premium ($69 / month)
- Agency ($129 / month)
Annual payments will save you roughly 40%.
You’ll get to track 200/700/1500 keywords, depending on your package. That’s for all tracked domains, without limit on the number of domains.
A ten-day free trial allows you to track ten keywords.
Historical rank tracking:
The current, average and best position of a keyword, the percentage change in position as well as the search volumes – all appear on a chart. You can choose a default period or select your own time frame.
Though not presently available, competitor analysis is on the anvil.
