    I am looking for a rank tracker like SERPBook or SERPFox that works for UK sites. These two are good but the data centres are in the US so the results are not accurate in the UK. I am using Traffic Travis at the moment but while the results are accurate the graphs are rubbish and showing monthly rank increases is pretty hard work.

    I want a rank tracker that doesn't cost a fortune, displays rankings graphically (allows you to change the date range) and where you can add event e.g. SEO work done. Basically a SERPBook or SERPFox that works in the UK. Any ideas?

    I could do with this too. I am using serpbook at the moment but wasn't aware that it might not be accurate in the UK.

    I used the SEOmoz rank tracker trial version.. i think, you can try it once.... link-assistant rank tracker may also help you..

    I am using rank tracker with UK proxies but searched for a web based solution for all my UK clients.

    Tried whoosh traffic - the results are 100% accurate BUT i do not like the dashboard, how you do reports, how you add keywords and many other things- however it is a good candidate (they are also offering 1st month free as trial)
    Tried micrositemasters - this was the best in terms of dashboard/features BUT ranks are inaccurate for UK clients, unfortunately

    You can try whoosh maybe you will find it easier to use than i found it, again, in terms of ranks they are 100% accurate. :)

    PS: microsite masters allows you to add event :)

    Hi there, SerpBook 100% accurately tracks UK sites as long as you have it set up properly.


    Select Google.co.uk as your region & en-gb as your language and you will have dead on accurate UK results.

    I'm going to try the rank tracker feature within Long Tail Pro. You can choose the geo location - worth a punt I suppose.

    Yes i have used it, It will satisfies your need. you can choose country at the time of creating project and you can also add notes like how much link you built on that day or how much link you're going to build likewise.

    I use RankTracker from the SEO Powersuite tools tot rack my UK rankings.

    I much prefer the one off cost of RankTracker than having to pay a monthly subscription. For the amount of keywords I check though I do need to use proxies, but I use them elsewhere anyway so it's not really an additional cost.

    Plus using local software to do the rank checks means you have full control of the data. E.g. lots of people used SEScout for a while and look what happened there, getting the historical data out and into something else is a nightmare.

    Serpfox uses UK data centers for UK results and is dead accurate.

    whatsmyserp has over 50 google regions to choose to check your SERPs. It also checks, tracks, and graphs up to 160 keywords per account for free. Give it a try.

    This is a great thread. Very useful and helpful.

    Although I don't have much to impart as yet, I can say that after almost 20 years of doing SEO, I am very disappointed that we have ended up with one website that holds all the cards: Google. I remember when the Internet was a bold and expansive vision, with more search engines than you could shake a stick at, yet in 2014 we are beholdant to spending inordinate amounts of time trying to attain the first 10 results in just one search engine. What strange times we are in.

    Anyhow, with my little rant over, I can say that I have used Free Monitor for Google (Cleverstat.com) for many years to check my keyword rankings, but in recent times because of Googles changes this has become increasingly unreliable.

    Recently I tried purchasing Rank Tracker from Link-assistant.com (about £100) which is very similar to Free Monitor, but at £100 I was hoping it would do a better job. It turns out to be much the same, except that with Rank Tracker you can use proxies to simulate different users making queries, otherwise Google just boots you out. This scenario made me very angry, with £100 spent and no further on down the road. However, I do now realise that gaining a mastery of finding and using UK proxies is crucial in order to run my own rank tracking reports straight from my desktop.

    I have also just started to investigate the cloud solutions, but most of them start at £100 per month for anything decent, which really is quite expensive, especially as I am not a full time SEO specialist (but primarily a web designer). At the end of the day it annoys me that Google themselves do not provide a free rank tracking facility. After all, as they are the self-appointed gods of the internet, they might as well provide some decent tools to help the rest of us poor suckers out.

    Anyhow, thank you all for your suggestions in this thread, which in summary included: SERP Attack, Rank Checker Ace, SERPBook, SERPFox, Traffic Travis, whoosh traffic, micrositemasters, market samiuri, SEO Powersuite, Opensite explorer, Adobe Adds, maybe Long Tail Pro, SEScout, whatsmyserp.

    Any more suggestions?

    Thanks
