Search engine Rank Checker

Search engines rank checker will tell you how your website ranks in several search engines. It also helps to know what the search engines think of your site although you may have to guess at methods to improve your ranking.

I entered “search engine rank checker” into Google and the following sites were listed. For each one which was free, I used the url of a favorite keyword research tool and the keyword “keyword research software”. This is exactly what I found:

Primary listing was sitereportcard. com. Here you can insert four urls and several keywords to find the ranking. The idea is that you insert your own page address and three other sites with which to compare it. Rankings are returned for Google, Yahoo and LIVE MESSENGER (now Bing). It returned my url as not in the top 100 for Google and Yahoo but number 19 in Yahoo serp api.

Number two listing was SEOcentro. You put in one domain and a competition if you wish along with your keyword. This returned my url as number 1 in Google, number 24 in Yahoo and not ranked in Yahoo.

Googlerankings. was the third of my search results. The problem with this is that should you not already have a Google SOAP API key, you can’t use the tool. No, they don’t issue any more APIs and no, they don’t help you if you’ve lost the one you already had.

Fourth was iwebtool.  Again, you insert the url and keyword. There are drop down menus for Search on (search engine) and Limit search to (a number of results) but each menu only offered one choice : Google and 100 results. This too listed my url as number 1 on Google.

6th was marketleap.. A “problem” was returned for this one.

Next at six was web-inspect. This one couldn’t find my chosen url at all in Google, Yahoo, LIVE MESSENGER, Hot Leveling bot or Teoma.

Seventh was ineedhits. To use this tool I needed to create a free account and having done so, I was asked to put a button on my website. Results were: Google : higher than 100, Yahoo : number 25 and Yahoo : number 50.

Next, at number eight came linkassistant. Rank Tracker is part of SEO Power Suite which you can download free or paid. I already had this thanks to my hosting account so i connected in my url and it returned number 1 on Google and number 25 on both Yahoo and Yahoo. I really like this tool; it creates a project for you and you can do all sorts of things with it : too many to bring up here as it’s worthy of an article without attention.

Number nine returned the FAQ page at digitalpoint: tools. I finally found that I had to register here too so i didn’t bother.

Finally at ten, Rank Checker from SEObook This is a free download that you can have to register. As far as I can tell, it is only available for Flock. It’s very easy to use; just go through the logo on your status bar in Flock, insert the url and as many keywords as you like and there you are. Results can be saved in CSV format. My url was #1 on Google, #19 on Yahoo and #25 on Yahoo.

So my selections for search engines rank checker based on these results would either be Rank Tracker (no. 8) and Rank Checker (no. 10) which returned more or less the same results.
