8 Utilities to Track Keyword Rankings

by Will Reinhardt November 3rd, 2009 

One of the more tedious tasks in my monthly routine is preparing keyword ranking reports. While I enjoy analyzing the numbers and discovering how well our clients have (hopefully) improved over the past 30 days, actually collecting those numbers is a chore I don't relish. If I can pay a few dollars to have a service perform this task on my behalf, I'm all for it.

Listed below are eight services that will track your keyword rankings for you. I'll do my best to list out their various pricing structures, to give you a simplified snapshot to help you find the service that most suits your needs.

In order to qualify for this list the service needs to still be supported and cannot require a Google API to work properly (since they're no longer issuing keys).

If none of these tools suit your needs, perhaps you'd prefer to track your keyword rankings with Google Analytics. It limits you to finding out what page your keyword is on instead of which position, but some reporting is better than none at all.

    I also like the tool authority labs. It is a little expensive but very good. They are supposed to be coming out with a white label version soon. I'm going to investigate the Raven Software line as it look to do a little more competitive intel.. Great Post.
