Tracking Google keyword ranking

AFS Analytics provides a great feature which helps users to monitor keyword positioning in Google, Bing, and Yahoo search engines.

SEO Content: Optimize Keywords

One of the biggest mistakes made by bloggers, article writers, or SEO experts is to publish content on a website without targeting keywords.

One crucial element of a webmaster’s job is to get their website’s pages as high as possible in the search engines’ ranking. To reach this goal, they need to adapt the content of their site to the targeted keywords.

Once the website’s content is optimized for S.E.O (Search engine Optimization), you will have to check and monitor the search engine ranking of each page for each targeted keyword.

AFS Analytics provides SEO keyword rank checker tool

AFS Analytics offers a tool that automatically performs this task. Each day, the position of your website, according to the keyword you defined, is checked on the search engines results page (SERP).

To know, how you site ranks, AFS Analytics checks the 200 first results for Google, Bing or Yahoo Search Engines.

If you linked your "Google search console" account to AFS Analytics, you will able to check the data provided about your keywords rank by selecting the option “GSC” as source.
