Keyword Rank Checker For Free
There are many tools that offer a keyword rank checker, but most charge a premium to see this information.
Online keyword tools like Semrush and KeySearch are fantastic tools that allow for limited keyword research without having to pay for a premium plan.
But in order to use their keyword rank checker features and see every single keyword your blog ranks for, you would need to pay.
This is unnecessary, since you already have access to this information for free, within your Google Search Console!
That’s right! You can see your entire keyword rank history within your free Google Search Console dashboard.
I’ll show you how to find it.

This tutorial assumes that you already have your website connected to Google Search Console.
If you haven’t done that yet, you will need to do this first: How to correctly connect your blog to Google Search Console.
Log In To Google Search Console
Once you are logged in, you will either be using the new Google Search Console or the old version.
I will show you how to navigate both versions.
Using The New Google Search Console:
Select your website, and then in the left side menu, click “Performance”
You will then see a page that looks like this. Click the purple box that says “Average Position”
You will now see a chart of every keyword that your blog currently ranks on Google for!
If you have been ranking for a while, this could be several hundreds of pages.
You can see how many impressions and clicks your website has received, and the average position it ranks for on Google.
In the image example above I have greyed out my keywords. But when you look at yours you will see the exact keywords and keyword phrases that your website is ranking for.
Pretty amazing, right?
Using The Old Google Search Console:
Using the old Google Search Console to check your website ranking, the steps are similar. Select your website, and then in the left side menu, click “Search Traffic” and then “Search Analytics.”
From there, you will see a chart with a menu that looks like this:
Select “Clicks” “Position” and “Queries” and choose a date range. All of your keyword ranking info will then be revealed!

How amazing is that? All of this information was there all this time and you may not have even known it.
Now you can check and see what keywords your blog is ranking for at any time, completely free of charge.
