What is the best tool to check your google ranking?

I have been using webmaster tools and analytics to keep an eye on keywords and where they are ranked. The problem is it does not give you any details - like what is ranked at a specific position, and Which google it's ranked for (different countries).

I have a ranking in webmaster tools for 5.0 for one of my pages, but it gets no traffic, and the keyword has very high search volume. Is there a tool out there to give you more information on what is ranked and where?

    Check out tools like Wordtracker or Wordstream - find out how your keywords sit with other keywords.

      Google Webmaster Tools. It's free and believed to be accurate despite past controversy. No idea why people always overlook it.

    I like Rankwatch. It is more than just a rank checker though.

    SerpFox would be my second choice.

    There are so many tool for checking google ranking but accordingly to me if you find your keyword ranking manual it is more benefit for you and it also give actual report.

      Don't do a manual search to check your rankings. It's time-consuming and inaccurate given the personalization of search results. Webmaster Tools. SIMPLE.

    I love rank checker from seobook. Rank checker is an free firefox extension, install it from seobook seo tools. Its easy to use, it will check top 200 results, not only Google you can also check for Yahoo and Bing rankings. For Google you can check rankings at country level

    My second option is lxrseo rankchecker

    try out any of those above

    There are a number of ways you can do that!

    Way 1: The Free Way

    You can simply check your Google rankings manually using any modern browser in private mode. Remember to clear the cache before you do that and note that your IP address affects the results.

    Way 2: Using Free SEO Tools

    There are many free SEO tools around that you can use, a quick list can be found here. Those SEO tools allow you to track your rankings provided that the number of keywords you are tracking are limited. For large number of keywords and websites, you might need to have an API key or you simply need to register to one of those paid services online for tracking keywords.

    Way 3: Paid Services

    There are many paid services around like proranktracker, micrositemasters and many others. However, if you are running only one website and your keywords are limited, i don't think there is any need for a paid service.

    Google analytics does not give you a precise accurate ranking data. At the same time, it does provide lots of information for you to know how your site is performing and stuff.

    In summary, depending on the size of your website and your marketing campaign you must choose the option that suits you the most. In most cases, there is no need for any paid service as long as your targeted keywords are less than 50.

    Hope that helps!

    For my own site I just fire up a private browser and type my keywords in manually.

    Client reports? Rank Tracker or the one that I get with my Bright Local account. It's easy to white label and I just shoot them a link to it in their email.

      The problem is when it's not on the top 10 pages, it's difficult to sift through after that and expect to easily find it. Even something that gives a reasonably detailed ball park figure, and for which google (images - other countries?)

    I have used couple of tools for that reason but i think Google webmaster tools is good for Google page rank calculation & the other side you can use seoquake toolbar to know all of your website rank in one toolbar, it is good because just download the toolbar & install it & very easily you will find your rank like Google, Alexa, semarsh & many other also you can use seomaster.com to check your present position.
