    Hi,

    I've found some posts on various forums and I wanted to know if there's anyway to tell where that particular post is ranked in Google and for what keyword? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would pull the keyword from the title of the post (or in the post if the content is specific) and then do a search on Google like such:

    "site:theforumname.xyz keyword" then browse the listings. Ctrl-f (find) can help a lot once on the serp page. Also using a time-based search is helpful if the post is not new, but not old at the same time (like a week or day old).

    Its same like checking where your site lies in competition.
    1. Position tracker for SEMRush
    2. https://serps.com/pages/pricing (trail will work for you)

    another manual method syntax: type in google-->> "Site:<link of your money site or forum post><space><Keyword> "and search for the listing in google SERP
