How to use Google position tools including SERPRobot to rank higher.

SERPRobot.

Why would you need a Search Engine Results Page robot?

Would you ever leave your baby unattended?

Of course not!

After all, your baby is your creation. You need to nurture your creation.

In the same way, your blog post articles are your creations.

You can’t just publish them and forget about them.

You need to nurture them until maturation.

In this case, “maturation” means getting to Page 1 of Google‘s Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs).

You can’t help your posts get to Page 1 of Google until you know which posts need your help.

This is why you need SERPRobot and other Google position tools.

This post covers

SERPRobot

SERPWatcher

SpyFu

Ubersuggest

SEMRush

Google Position Checker

Small SEO Tools

It gets better. All the Google positioning tools described in this post are free.

Are you ready? Let’s take a deep dive.

What is a Google Positioning Tool?

A Google positioning tool is a tool used to detect the position of a website or URL in the search engines.

You composed your published content around certain keywords. These tools enable you to see your rankings for those keywords.

The tools check the position of your post in the SERPS by checking the location of your post for a certain keyword. For that reason, they are also called “Keyword Position Checkers.”

Since they show you your posts’ positions in search engines, they are also called “Web Positioning Tools.”

Once you are finished writing a post using your target keywords, your next task is to keep track of its rankings in the SERPs.

There are several important reasons you need to do this.

First, you can continue to build backlinks with anchor text. You need SERPRobot and these additional tools so you know which posts to build backlinks to.

Next, if you have outdated information or if new information becomes available since you published, you want to update the information. In your meta description add “The current year + Update.”

Also, your older posts may have broken links. Replacing those links will boost your ranking in the SERPS. Broken links make people leave your site which hurts your SEO.

In addition, aren’t you curious? You work hard to compose your articles. You should know the results of your efforts by checking your articles’ standings in the search engine results pages.

Finally, you can repeat your successes. If you know Google consistently pushes your posts higher in the SERPs for a certain content category in your niche, consider publishing more content on that topic. Clearly, Google believes you’re knowledgeable about that topic and shows your posts to its users.

9 Google Position Tools to Help You Rank Higher

SERPRobot

This Google position checker tool has rapidly become my favorite.

What is SERPRobot?

(Formerly SERPLab.co.uk.)

You use SERPRobot to check positions in Google’s Search Engine Results Pages, also called the “SERPs,” hence the name “SERPRobot.”

Do you ever wonder if your posts rank on Google? SERPRobot will tell you. If you rank, SERPRobot will also tell you in which position. You can check up to 5 keywords at a time. Want to check more? No problem! This amazing tool is free without a maximum amount of queries.

Although SERPRobot charges for certain features of the tool, the SERPRobot keyword Google position tool is free.

How to use SERPRobot to check your Google rankings

You better use this amazing tool soon. SERPRobot is still in beta. Whether there will be a charge for use in the future is anybody’s guess.

UPDATE, DECEMBER 2019: SERPRobot is still a free Google position checker.

How to Use SERPRobot

Go to https://www.serprobot.com/.

Click Free SERP Check.

Choose your region.

Type in your blog URL. Note: You do not need to type in the HTTP or the HTTPS.

Type in your keywords you want to see if you ranked on Google for or the URL of your competitor whose rankings you’d like to check.

Click “I am not a robot.”

Click “Check SERP now.”

I was curious to see if my post about Instasize video ranked since the post continues to generate traffic, so I put the keyword Instasize video (which was my focus keyword for the post) into SERPRobot.

Look:

How to use SERPRobot to check your Google rankings

The tool told me my post is in Position 6 on Google’s SERPs. This is not only in Google’s Top 10 for the keyword, but I now know my post is on Page 1.

Why this matters:

I have a backlink strategy. When I want to backlink to my posts from sites with high DAs, I need to choose my links.

Which link to publish off my blog is an important decision. A link from a site with a high DA could boost my Google rankings.

I could choose the link to my Instasize video in order to try to keep it on Page 1. On the other hand, I might opt for a link that’s on Page 2 of Google in order to try to boost it to Page 1.

Hubshout

Go to http://report.hubshout.com/?p=Research# .

Type in your URL.

    Super post Janice. I love SerpRobot a lot and I’ve used it havily in the past. It’s really accurate.
    But I stopped because I became addicted to it.
    I’d check my rankings every 5m or so.
    Still, when in true need- it’s a great tool to have. And free too which is always a +.
    Cheers!

    I use whatsmyserp to check position of keywords for my website. It gives me how my website is ranking on daily basis. This is a useful tool but I have to enter all keywords to set it up.

    Hi Janice,
    Great to be here again the read yet another wonderful read.
    Good to know about SERPRobot, will check and use it. Some of the other tools mentioned here I am already using it.

    The other options you mentioned take to improve our post’s standing in the SERPS like updating there existing posts with lot of current information is worth doing.

    Of course the ultimate one is the promotion, unless we do this who else will? This is the question always I ask myself।
    Though we already promoted it, there is nothing wrong in doing it again!
    Yes, in my opinion, yes, we should do it shamelessly!! 🙂 Many may not agree with me in this strategy. Would like the know your views Janice.
    Have a great day.
    ~ Phil

    Nice list! I’ve used SerpRobot before and do still on occasions for quick checks due to it’s speed.

    Ubersuggest too is a really handy tool for researching keywords and volumes along with SerpStat as there is sometimes a difference in opinion on volumes 🙂

    • Janice Wald | at 1:03 pm

      Hi Richard,
      Thanks for writing. I agree Ubersuggest is valuable as well as SERPRobot. I don’t use SERPStat. Is it free?
      I often use KWFinder and agree, metrics vary between tools.
