On demand keyword rank search
Simply place your all your keywords you want to track in the required field and press the "Find" button to immediately retrieve your rankings for each keyword.
The sky is the limit and this sheet is programmed to find up to 1000 keywords ( The real limit is when the quota is exceeded for Google's app script, we haven't really tested it yet )
Hot tip: This searches anonymously from Google's server it is unaffected by your personalised data so you can get the most ACCURATE results.
You can also search from any country and language to get the most precise results!
What better way to analyze your SEO actions by looking at it from a chart over a period of time?
This is where most tools will ask you to pay a premium to keep a storage of your data on their server.
Well we don't, your data is stored directly on Google sheets.
Whenever your sheet is too full, just duplicate the tracker to create a new store of data.
Simply click the "Track" button and our program will create a new sheet to track the daily or 6 hourly rankings by default of your keywords.
Here's where it gets REALLY POWERFUL
You can change the settings to make it track for every second ( We don't recommend this ) to see how your rankings act in real-time.
Even paid software doesn't allow this but we can push the limits with Google's app script.
Hot tip: You will get to see the Google Dance in action when your results fluctuate every second.
Is it really free?
Keyword Trackers online are not able to sustain a free model without upselling you various other SEO services due to the limited amount of requests that their servers are able to handle.
Each request will cost them money in terms of Bandwidth.
So we have decided to leverage on an existing server that's available to everyone for free, deciding that a single users capacity would not be too overwhelming for this Free server, that is Google Cloud, thus making it Free for everyone.
However, as we are still a budding start-up and we do not profit from selling data or showing you ads, so we ask that everyone make a simple credit in terms of a review and a link back to this page so that other users can use it as well!
All you have to do is insert a tiny script in your footer and a small credit footer will appear.
If you are wondering, a simple link to a legitimate site will not hurt your SEO.
Our crawler will verify your credits every time when tracking happens, in both the Keyword Rank Search and historical tracking.
Do not attempt to remove the key domain and credits at any point, your tracker will fail
What can you do with this?
If you are new to SEO, this software can help you track the results of your SEO efforts. Simply document down the actions you have taken and reference it to our tool to see the results of that action.
On top of that, we recommend you to track your competition as well to see how they are doing with their rank efforts.
