TinyRanker is a very popular SEO rank tracking tool that was created in 2008. I took a moment to speak with the team over at TinyRanker so I could get a better idea of how to properly use their service.
In this review, you will learn how to use TinyRanker to track your Google keywords for SEO and why I recommend it.
First, you’ll need to sign up for a FREE 30 day trial account here. Simply fill out the form and you can access your account once you confirm an email.
Next, TinyRanker asks you to enter a domain name and Search Engine. I simply used “BackLinkInsider.com” for my URL and Google Search (United States) for my rank tracking results.
Then you have to add some keywords. In this review, I used the keyword “Create a Website like WorldStarHipHop” because it’s one of my top ranking keywords.
Inside the TinyRanker Dashboard
Once you enter your base keywords, you can choose from several options:
- Site Overview
- Keyword Lists
- Google Analytics
- and Competitors
TinyRanker shows a very nice layout of my current rank, Onpage score, URL, and estimated Google monthly searches. I like this feature because it saves them doing Google Keyword research, plus track my rankings at the same time.
It can be hard to keep track of all your URLs (and your clients), but I really like how TinyRanker organizes all your URLs in one easy section. This makes it easy to add and delete pages when your SEO goals change.
TinyRanker can access your Google Analytics data to provide a more comprehensive SEO report. I’ve never seen this feature before and I’ve used dozens of SEO rank trackers in the past. Very nice feature.
This is the 2nd most powerful feature behind tracking your keywords. TinyRanker comes up with an automated list of potential competitors and lets you compare your rankings head to head. So far, I’m outranking a lot of big websites like BlackHatWorld and Freelancer. What normally would take hours to do manually is done in minutes with this handy feature.
Not only can you compare rankings, but Tinyranker shows you which keywords your competitors are using and where they rank. This is golden because you can literally steal your competition’s keyword list or add undiscovered keywords to your money pages.
After your 30 day trial, you will need to upgrade to a bigger plan. The trial plan only offers 50 keywords so upgrading is a nice bonus because you get 100 keywords with the starter package.
I recommend the Starter Plan for most bloggers, small ecommerce stores, and other small web projects. 100 keywords is more than enough to tackle a small niche. If you track your web metrics closely, you will realize only a handful of keywords lead to lots of revenue anyway.
This is a good choice if you are an advanced marketer and have multiple websites. If you own 5 sites, then you can track up to 100 keywords per site.
This is TinyRanker’s most popular plan and offers you 1,000 keywords for only $79. I recommend this package if you own more than 5 websites, have clients, or rely on Adwords PPC for your lead generation. You can really test out A TON of keyword combinations to find which ones convert better then track your rankings until you show up #1.
This is for SEO agencies only. 2,000 keywords is a ton so only sign up if you have lots of SEO clients.
