I discovered another rank checker yesterday, this one is from seomoz.org – it’s another email address cough up but you do get some free tools for a free subscription – obviously you can pay more to get more!
Anyhoos with the free rank checker you get 5 goes per day.
I have tried both rank check tools from seobook and seomoz, I am not convinced yet as I am getting varying results, I realise that the rankings are changing dynamically all the time but i feel the tools are using slightly older indexed content.
One of my favourites (which only works on Google) is Grease Monkey Firefox plugin it is the coolest and its free! get the monkey here and restart Firefox. Then install the script from userscripts.org called “Google!, what page am I”, there’s a “Install” button on the page that installs it for you.
So now when you use Google do the search and when the results are displayed a new text box appears in the top right which is were you type in your domain or the domain you are trying to match to the search and click Go.
The script will search the first 30 pages of Googles SERPS, if you are rankng lower than that, well i feel for you but you can edit the script in your local text editor to increase the amount of pages it searches on but instead of being told what page you are on you actually trawl the SERPS and see for yourself – I would like to see this for Bing & Yahoo.
