But did you know that you actually can track your website’s ranking or SERPs? It is also very important because you can see the results of your changes to your marketing strategies on your site statistics results. SERPs tracking is determining your position in the Search Engine Results Page. A lot of marketing tools offer this feature but they are not very dedicated and functional. So here is the least of some services that can help you track your SERP rating.
Authority Labs helps you search ranking for the keywords you choose or suggests related ones on Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Authority Labs offers a 30 day free trial but then you will have to choose one of their plans to continue using the service.

MozCast is not applied directly to your website but it draws correlations with your own data for you to see what actions resulted in very high or low rankings. It combines all of the Moz data about ranking changes and all activity on Google search that day to analyze it. Because some days are busier than others and Google might be making a change or testing potential changes. If it sees that Google change has some effect on you you should better do something about it to keep your positions stable.
The SEOBook Rank Checker for Firefox
This is a plugin for Firefox that you can use to see search rankings at any time because it is basically in your toolbox. It opens two fields for domain and for the keywords and lets you see the domain, the keyword, the Google ranking, ranking page and similar data from other search engines. However, it only checks Google Top 200 so if you are not yet there maybe you will not see yourself and only shows personalized results so if you are logged into Google it can mess your results up. And the worst thing is that it only works with Firefox.
