    Is this possible if so what tool would I use? I would like to find out what keywords I am ranking for by accident and if they are good nurture those rankings.

    Thanks in advance

    I do the same thing, either with awstats or webalizer or any other apache log analysis tool. No need to use GA for this.

    I use semrush for checking google's rankings. You can put url there and then you will see rankings for various keywords in top 20 results in google.

    there's also a great wp plugin called rankchecker that keeps track of incoming keywords (based on referral data) and monitors your actual rank on those keywords.

    For me it's a combination of AWStats in cPanel and the Big G's Webmaster tools.

    SEMrush is perfect for that.

    They have a huge database and they're actually pretty affordable.

    Ahrefs is the best for this. the smallest fee is 50$/month but it can uncover up to 2500 keywords ;)
