More Information

Is your SERP Checker really free?

Yep. 100% free. However you can repay us slightly. Tweet Us up solid. We think it's kind of cool.
What is your privacy policy?
We don't require any personal information about you and you don't need to create an account to use our tool. We are required to forward your IP address to the search engine when you request a scan to be done. Your IP address is attached to every scan request as they are submitted. This is required information for the search engines so they can make sure no one is abusing their API.
Matrix Have A CookieWe also throw you a cookie so you can have your keywords and domain pairings pre-filled for you when you return to to check your search rankings.
Will you store my scan in your database?
Your submitted domain name, keyword, and keyword's numerical position for that date are logged in the database with your IP address. After your request, we temporarily store the indexed text of the search engines result until Midnight PST. This is so we only have to hit the search engines API just once per day for that SERP. We then purge those indexed results from our database and start anew. Database data is also used to generate SERP history graphs, using the Google Visualization API (coming soon), and is completely automated.

Where can I get a list of the most popular keywords?

Use Google's tools: Adwords Keyword Selector. When you get your list, export it to CSV, then copy that blurb of keywords into the Keyword(s) box.

TIP: Use your Google Analytics "Traffic Sources" by "Keywords" report and export your top 25 entrance keywords to CSV. Paste that bulk keyword list into the box. You can paste straight from Excel™.
How do I monitor multiple domains?
Use multiple browsers like Chrome, IE, and Firefox. Then have each separate domain saved in that browser's cookie. You can try additional browsers but we only develop for Chrome, FF, and IE 7+.
How deep do you check for results?
We check into Google's Top 64 results. We check Bing search rankings 100 results deep. Google's API limits our depth to 64 and while Bing allows deeper checks, we limited it to 100 because, let's face it, if you're not in the top 100, you're not in the game.
Thanks for not putting in a CAPTCHA.
You're welcome. We hate those things. Same-day SERP requests are database-driven until Midnight PST.

How does a SERP checker work?

Optimization of a web page in order to be picked up by SERPs is done by improving the meta tag or keyword content in the website. The other approach of improving PageRank is by increasing the number of links to the web page. A SERP checker works to measure the overall rank of the website in the SERP results page. Often the results of the checker are limited to a fixed number of listings or pages of the search engines. However, users interested in using it in improving the Internet Marketing of the site usually find this limitation sufficient to serve their purpose – typically when trying to optimize a website for search engines, results are expected to come within the fixed number of listings for the SERP checkers.


How to run a SERP report?

A SERP report is mostly intuitive to use with the url of the website to be analyzed as one input and a selection of the search engines against which to calibrate/rank the website as the other important input. One more important parameter required for the report is the keyword for which the SERP is to be generated. For example, if you were trying to check a domain for the keyword, you would enter in your domain name in the box labeled 'Domain Name' and then enter in your keywords that you were searching for relevenat to that domain. The report typically takes time to be generated as it has to run across various search engines – the time also depends on the settings used in limiting the search to the maximum number of pages or listings. The limit is most often set by the user in free and simple SERP checkers. A few other SERP checkers only accept the parameters and do not give results straightaway – the report is sent to the user’s contact email at a later time. Most users will find it easy to learn how to run a SERP report. Paid SERP checkers contain several other options to suit the users’ requirements.


Where is SERP used?

The principal benefit of optimizing of a website for SERP reports is to increase traffic. Search Engine Optimization has become a primary weapon in the field of internet marketing. With well over a 100 million websites being added to the internet even in the downturn of 2009, the new era of internet businesses is marked by stiff competition. In the circumstances, the means of holding an edge in the internet marketing space is to optimize websites, so that they are picked up early in the SERP reports. Users and potential clients of internet businesses often rely on search engine results for meeting their specific requirements. Web pages in the first few results clearly score over the other. SERP reports prove to be useful in this scenario – while optimizing the website for search engines aids in getting the website picked for a better page ranking, SERP reports provide data on where the website ranks.


Typical SERP results

SERP results of most of the common search engines fall into two listing types. Organic search listings are SERP results based on relevance of websites derived from the keywords searched for. On the other hand, paid listings aka contextual listings are listings where websites pay the search engines to catalog the websites. The contextual listings are either in the form of a click-per-pay mechanism or a sponsored citation helping fund the operations of the search engines. Most SERP results show the different categories of listings in separate sections, or use diverse highlighting techniques to distinguish between adverts and organic listings. The search engine ranking also varies by the content type searched for – images, videos, maps or pure content.


Growing significance of SERP checkers

At the core of the mounting use of SERP checkers over the past few years has been the growth in frequency of search engines usage. Well over 50% of the online community uses search engines on a daily basis. The remaining use the search engines less regularly, but a very insignificant number use search engines less frequently than once a week. With the search engine becoming the access point of potential customers and clients of several websites and online businesses, frequent use of SERP checkers are a key to maintain organic visibility on the net. The SERP checker helps identify the page ranking in terms of several combinations of keywords most likely to be searched for. Rankings matter – studies have shown that a large portion of the web users barely go beyond the first page in search engine reports. This is particularly true for highly congested and competitive markets.


Evolution of Search engine position reports

Early Search Engine reports were based on a simple mechanism of the search engine spiders crawling websites submitted for indexing – this had started in the mid 1990s when the search engine revolution had started to impact the internet. During this era, the key to good rankings in organic search engine reports was keyword density and meta-tags. The strength of inbound links played a crucial role in determining page rank in early 2000s. However, as the internet evolved further, prominent search engines such as Google used complicated and undisclosed mathematical algorithms to provide SERP results. It was in this stage that SERP checkers became an indispensable tool of choice for SEOs – they were used to test the results of the SEO tweaks and thereby provide an insight into the combination of tweaks that worked best to increase a web page’s rank.


Most used Search Engines

SERP checkers indicate a page’s rank with reference to only the most used search engines. The most popular search engine result metric used by SERP checkers to grade a page’s rank is Google. Incidentally, the rise to prominence of Google’s search engine was based on the innovative idea of providing a PageRank using algorithms in the early 2000s. Another prominent search engine used by most SERP checkers is Yahoo. Yahoo used Google’s engine till 2004, when it launched its own search engine. In the same year, MSN also launched its own search engine technology. AltaVista is another super-popular search engine and one of the oldest too. Check it out! LOL. While several SERP checkers provide reports against most of the popular search engines, Google is the most prominent search engine used by SERP checkers, followed by Yahoo and Bing.


Widely used SERP checker tools

Search engine position checker tools are widely distributed for free over the internet. A few paid versions come with added options and benefits. However, SERP checker tools are far more available in comparison with plagiarism checkers. Some of the tools qualifying as the best free SERP report are Search Engine Genie and Googlerankings. Several other small players also have SERP checker tools to check the PageRank of a website in various search engines. SERP checker tools are now an essential part of the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) pack used to optimize websites for improved SERP rankings. However, the tools vary in the number of maximum ranks considered – some show 100 while some show up to the top 1000 pages only. This particular tool shows the top 64 results due to limitations results provided with the Google API.


What is a SERP checker?

SERP checkers are an essential tool in the Search Engine Optimizers (SEO) packs which aid in checking the coverage of a website in search engines. SERP checker results show the numeric rank of a website in the search results of typically used search engines such as Google and now Bing. The SERP checker indicates where the website is found in the search engine results page and therefore gives an indication of how much optimization will be necessary for a website to reach a target rank. Search engine results are typically refreshed periodically the period in between the refreshes do not take into account the modifications made to the website to improve its rank.


Common issues with SERP checkers

One of the most common issues with SERP checkers is that the reported result is deemed inaccurate in some cases. This is sometimes because of the inherent inaccuracy or the SERP checker, but on most occasions it is because of the fluctuating rankings of the search engines themselves or when multiple pages are ranked from a single domain. The Search engines have a mechanism of changing the latest rankings of every website – so a website ranking is liable to be changed from the SERP checker result in the actual search engine result page. The refreshing rate of the ranking and frequency of updating these rankings varies from search engine to search engine, but currently most search engines almost continually are in the process of updating PageRank and other measurement factors depending on the search engine. The SERP result therefore only provides an approximate estimate and range of ranking for a page. Optimization the page is a continual activity to be undertaken to ensure consistent rankings.
