Is there a free tool that can look at a site and show historical SERP information for it?
I don't really think that would be possible unless you track them yourself (why would anyone keep records of every sites history).
Don't know why anyone would, but then again, why would anyone keep copies of every website in existence (archive.org) ?
I wondered about this too, would be kind of awesome..
what exactly do you mean by checking historical information ??
You can scrape all the details for a competition...
Not sure but check this out: http://www.seodiver.com/serp-history
For example, all of a sudden dogtrainingtips.com shows up one day at #1 for dog training. I'd like to look back and see "where the site came from" - in other words, what rank was it last week, two weeks ago, a month ago?
Thanks - I'd looked at them, but there doesn't seem to be a way to know if the keyword I'm interested in is on their list - and paying for a month just hoping it's there, in order to check out one site, seemed a bit steep before asking if anyone had other suggestions.
Just came across this: http://www.webseoanalytics.com/free/seo-tools/serp-analysis.php
There's a history tab. Take advantage of the free trial. I'll keep searching.
Also found 'SheerSEO' which also has a 60 day trial:
Scroll down to see the Historical feature. Hope that helps.
Will play around with them. Thanks. Thanks and rep given.
Semrush gives you a decent nit of historical info. So does ahrefs, but both are better with a paid subscription.
It is for me useful as well , great thread!
I am also seeking for this type of tool.
For details and accuracy, I rely upon Market Samurai (because I don't like monthly subscriptions). Sometimes I'll look using SeoQuake for a quick idea.
SeoQuake is a handy little Firefox plugin that provides an info bar across the top of every website I visit. On a SERP, every result has an abbreviated metrics list. Clicking on Density in the toolbar will provide a basic keyword list. Selecting Page Info will provide a more detailed overview of the site.
It isn't a replacement for Semrush or Traffic Travis, but is very useful for a free tool. The linked site has several videos you may wish to review. They have just come out with versions for Opera and Safari, but those are currently in beta.
