Rank tracker: keyword tracking

A rank tracker can help you get an overview of your rankings in Google's search results - which is why many people use it for SEO. It allows you to monitor keyword progress as well as decline, so you can keep up to date with optimization.

You can track both your keyword rankings on phone and on desktop.

Rank trackers for SEO

Is it necessary to use a rank tracker when working with SEO? Opinions are divided on this.

I assume that you have already set up Google Search Console on your website, and here you can also see your keyword rankings and the number of exposures and clicks. A rank tracker allows you to get a quick overview of your rankings, but there is other data that is far more important than keyword rankings. This is something you should always keep in mind when working with SEO.

I would personally recommend investing in Ahrefs, which is user-friendly and contains most of the data relevant to a SEO specialist. Ahrefs is much more than a rank tracker. It allows you to do competitor analysis, in-depth link analysis, keyword analysis, technical SEO and much more.
