Does Google have a tool within webmasters or Adwords to help you monitor your rankings for a set of keywords? I can't seem to find one within either platform even though this would seem like a great feature.

If this doesn't exist, what tools can I use to keep track of keyword rankings and their changes over time?

    Yes, they do. What you're looking for is Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics. Keep in mind, you can link these two together

      Thanks for verifying this. I had previously searched multiple times for "search rankings tool" but somehow Google did not turn up their own internal result for linking Analytics to Webmasters. After doing some extensive digging, I found Google's directions on how to link your accounts and gain access to SEO reporting.

      Once your accounts are linked, simply go into the reporting section of your website in Google Analytics and go to the Acquisition --> Search Engine Optimization portion to select from one of the three reports (queries, landing page, geographical summary.

    Here is top 5 keyword search ranking monitoring tools-
    Rank Checker by SEOBook – This tool comes from SEOBook and is one of the most popular free tools for keyword monitoring. This is a Firefox extension (and only Firefox) allows you to see your rankings for Yahoo and Bing as well as Google. You can add up to 100 keywords and export them easily in order to really analyze the results.

    Web CEO – This tool allows you to compare your results and your competitors results side by side. It makes it easy to see your history of rankings and how they have changed over time once you setup the tool.

    Rank Tracker – What makes Rank Tracker so great is the ability to track all your keywords instantly across all search engines and then have it automatically go into a clear, concise report. This tool also allows you to compare your rankings with competitors on just about every different search engine.

    SEO Ranking Monitor – This tool also allows you to choose which search engine you want to track (including Google local versions) as well as upload keywords to track in bulk. You can compare your rankings with the rankings of your competitors, and the tool will even generate graphs for you to help make the numbers easier to read. For the basic package, it’s only $19 per month.

    Authority Labs – This is an extremely easy to use tool that is constantly being updated to reflect the latest algorithm changes. This tool allows you to track 100 to an unlimited amount of keywords (depending on your plan), but it comes at a price. Wordtracker ranges from $49 – $450 per month. However many do find that the cost is worth it for those looking for advanced results and they do offer a 30 day free trial.

    I don't suggest you to use Google Analytics or Google Webmaster tool to monitor your search ranking. Through these tools, Google track your website and sometimes they deindex your website. So, go with the other ranking tool like Semrush or various other which is suggested by other members but don't use Google tools.

      I use SEMRush too. I setup weekly tracking for all of my money sites and get reports that show the change from week to week.
