6 Free Google Rank Checkers in 2020

If you are trying to rank for a specific keyword on Google, or want to monitor your current search engine rankings, you have two options:

  1. You search Google and scroll the SERP until you find it (lol)
  2. You use a search engine ranking checker

Now, most people will opt for the first reason because they have used up the free limits of a paid search engine ranking tool and don't want to pay for it.

For this reason, I have found 6 Free online SEO rank checkers to allow you to easily check your search engine rankings.

1. UberSuggest

UberSuggest is probably the best free SEO rank checker I have found online.

Simply enter your URL, hit search and you'll get all the keywords your website is ranking for - ordered by the search volume.

If you prefer you can check by individual keywords, but replacing the URL with the specific keyword you want to check.

Favourite Features:

  • Very user-friendly
  • Can enter the URL and get all the keywords your site ranks for
  • Loads SERP on the left of the results
  • Can copy all of them to clipboard or export them as CSV
  • Provides more data than a lot of other free search engine rank checking tools

UberSuggest Search Engine Ranking Checker

This tool is free for the first 100 keyword results and also has a limit on how many times you can use it.

But you can increase the limit by logging in with your Gmail account - a small price to pay really.

And besides, if your website ranks for over 100 keywords, it's probably time to invest in a decent paid search engine ranking checker.

2. SEMRush

SEMRush as you probably know is one of the top SEO tools on the market.

Although this is a paid tool, they provide free access to their software if you create an account.

Favourite Features:

  • Very user-friendly
  • Can enter the URL and get all the keywords your site ranks for
  • Provides search volume and CPC
  • Tells you the date the rank position changed

To get to the page in the screenshot above, first, go to SEMRush, create a free account and confirm your email address.

Next, under Domain Analytics go to Organic Research and enter your URL.

One drawback of SEMRush is that it only lets you use 10 requests per day.

3. SERPWatcher

Another great tool for checking your google ranking position is SERPWatcher.

For me, I like tools that are very user-friendly and provide a lot of data and SERPWatcher does just that.

Favourite Features:

  • Very user-friendly
  • Provides search volume and estimated visits
  • Tracks keywords and set up rank position movement alerts
  • Tells you the date the rank position changed

To gain access to this tool first, go to SERPWatcher, create a free account and confirm your email address.

One drawback of this tool is that you only have access for 10 days.

4. Small SEO Tools Keyword Position Checker

Small SEO Tools is a very popular provider of all sorts of useful tools and resources, one being their search engine Keyword Position Checker.

Favourite Features:

  • Provides search volume
  • Provides the previous ranking position
  • Can also use the URL instead of entering individual keywords

5. SERPRobot

SERPRobot was my favourite paid rank tracking tool back when it was called "SERPLab". As well as rank tracking, they also offer a free search engine rank checker.

Favourite Features:

  • Simple to use
  • Tells you which specific URL is ranking

While SERPRobot is a great free tool, it only lets you check 5 keywords. In addition, it doesn't provide the search volume.

Still, if the other's aren't working for whatever reason you have still have one more rank checker you can use!

6. SEO Review Tools Rank Checker

At number 5, we have the SEO Tools Rank Checker tool.

It's a fairly basic tool but it does the job.

Favourite Features:

  • Minimal ads
  • Simple to use

One drawback of this rank checker is that sometimes, due to high usage, it becomes unavailable.

Conclusion

And there you have it, 6 free search engine rank checkers.

If you have reached the limits of your usual search engine position tool, you can add one of these bad boys to your rotation.

My favourite rank checkers have to be SEMRush or UberSuggest. Both are very user-friendly and provide a lot of data.

5 Free Keywords Everywhere Alternatives in 2020

As you may remember, on October 1st, 2019, the cries of the SEO community could be heard from the rooftops.

And before you ask, this date is not Halloween (seriously?).

No, this was something much scarier. This fateful day was the day Keywords Everywhere moved from a free to pay-as-you-go type model.

Now, although it has now become a paid too, it is still relatively inexpensive.

But of course, we as SEOs would much rather pay nothing at all - no matter how cheap it is!

Fortunately, I have found five great alternatives to Keywords Everywhere - that are 100% free.

Let's get into it.

1. Keyword Surfer

Keyword Surfer is probably the closest free alternative to Keywords Everywhere I have found.

Just as Keywords Everywhere does, it provides keyword search volume, CPC along with keyword ideas and suggestions - all according to whichever location you specify.

The only downside of this chrome extension is that it doesn't provide the competition metric.

One thing I like is that under each SERP result it displays three things:

  • Estimated Monthly Traffic
  • Page Word Count
  • The number of times your search term appears on the page

While I don't really have use for the last one, the first two are very useful indeed.

2. WMS Everywhere

WhatsMySerp Everywhere, aka WMS Everywhere, is another Keywords Everywhere alternative chrome extension that provides keyword metrics like search volume and cost-per-click, as well as a collection of other similar search terms.WhatsMySerp Everywhere aka WMS Everywhere Now, I'm sure you guys are wondering "This tool provides CPC and Keyword Surfer doesn't" or "Why's this Keywords Everywhere alternative, not number 1?".

The reason for this is because every time I downloaded the WMS Everywhere extension, it wouldn't register that I had logged in and therefore wouldn't work.

I have heard others have had similar issues which is a shame because I believe this tool could become one of the best keywords everywhere alternatives out there, once these issues have been resolved, of course.

3. Cocolyze Keyword Research Tool

Cocolyze Keyword Research Tool comes in at number 3.

Overall as a keyword research tool, this is definitely one of my favourites.

Although not a chrome extension like the others, this powerful tool provides all the keyword data you need for your SEO projects.

As well as the Best Opportunities, it provides:

  • Most Competitive Keywords
  • Best Questions
  • Best Long Tail Keywords
  • And a list of them all compiled together

The reason this tool is so great is because it provides so much data, just take a look:

4. UberSuggest Keyword Tool

At number 4, we have UberSuggest's Keyword Tool. Another value-packed tool that provides; search volume, CPC, keyword difficulty (both SEO and CPC) as well as a list of very helpful keyword ideas.

UberSuggest Keyword Tool

This tool is free for the first 100 keyword results and also has a limit on how many times you can use it.

But you can increase the limit by logging in with your Gmail - a small price to pay for all this data.

5. Linkgraph Keyword Search Volume Tool

Last on the list we have the Linkgraph Keyword Search Volume tool. This nifty tool lets check multiple keywords at once, outputting search volume, CPC and competition. One thing it doesn't do, in comparison to the other Keywords Everywhere alternatives, is provide you with keyword suggestions.

Conclusion

And there you have it, folks - five great alternatives to Keywords Everywhere.

As mentioned earlier, I personally use Keyword Surfer as it is so easy to use.

All I have to do is open up Chrome, enter my keyword and hit enter. Job done.
