    SEMrush can also help if you don't use G Analytics.

    It's naturally centered around US rankings naturally, but also has data on other markets such as UK, Russia etc. The free version will allow you to check your rankings for a few keywords, but you can get most of your ranked keywords via the keyword clout at the bottom of the analysis page.

    I alway go to Alexa to see what keywords my site is ranking for.

    I've found ahrefs useful although on the free option they've recently really cut back so you can only check a few times. Plus according to some of their returned searches a few of my websites should be goldmines according to the $3000-$6k worth of equivalent paid traffic that supposed longtail kw results should be bringing. Which unfortunately they're not, otherwise I'd be too busy drinking cocktails on some beach right now..

    One thing ahrefs help me with is seeing if I am attracting a lot of foreign traffic as at the moment my traffic is all over the shop - even for .uk sites I get a large percentage of US traffic from linking efforts. Maybe it's the G just f7cking with me.

    I use statcounter.com
    I just export the entire log into csv, open it excel and then just extract the "keyword" column then remove duplicates.

    That way I have a full list of keywords that get any amount of traffic at all.
