Wouldn’t it be great to know where your website is in the top search engines for given keywords?
[23/02/2013 Update: Of late we've found that Google results are not appearing in this tool, meaning it is much less useful. Hopefully these results may return in time.]
This is really a very simple tool but it offers a useful function. What it does is bring together all the results from a given keyword phrase into one page so you can easily see where your website is positioned in each search engine. You can also use it for competitor research.
How does it work?
It’s very simple. First visit www.ranks.nl/tools/compare.html and enter your choice of the 5 search engines.
Then choose the layout and enter your keyword phrase and press submit. The page that comes up will show a small window of results for each search engine.
In the screenshot above (click to see a more detailed version) I have done a comparison for the phrase “adwords keyword tools” as I know my website has quite good position for this keyword in Google but am interested in how it is doing in the other search engines.
Using the keyword tool I can quickly find out where the site is for the phrase in my chosen search engines and compare directly between them.
Record the results
Also if I record the results against the date in a simple SEO record spreadsheet, I can see how things have moved when I run the tool again in the future.
