What is Keyword Rank Checker?

Every SEO professional needs to know how well their sites rank for their target keywords.
They also need to keep track of competitors’ rankings.

You can do this manually by typing queries into search engines. But that’s time-consuming and can be inaccurate. Luckily, there are many awesome tools that do this automatically.

Here at Ahrefs, we have integrated keyword rank checking functionality into 3 core tools:

  • Site Explorer

    Shows every keyword for which the target website or web page ranks.

  • Rank Tracker

    Tracks ranking progress for up to 10,000 keywords over time.

  • Keywords Explorer
