Anyone who has tried to manually find their website’s position in a search engine knows it takes way too long, and that they should spend that time in a much more productive way. When you get to a certain point in your business you can afford to use a rank tracker. There are two types of rank trackers: web-based and desktop-based.
A web-based rank tracker like SerpYou
Your rankings are checked daily and automatically. You can track as many keywords as you need. No proxies. No hassle. View your rankings or edit your keywords anywhere with an internet connection.
Desktop-based rank tracker
Your rankings are only updated when you are running the program.
If you track more than a handful of keywords you’ll likely be temporarily blocked by search engines like Google. You may need to buy proxies in order to avoid being blocked by search engines. You can only view your rankings on your own computer.
