What features you should look for in the right serp tracker?

I've used multiple SERP trackers over the years and I love some things about them and hate others. I'm basically writing this up to figure out what people like when it comes to SERP trackers. Also, if you didn't know, SERP stands for search engine results pages and SERP trackers will track each of the keywords you put into them What features you should look for in the right serp tracker?


The Main Features I Like
Amount of Keywords: With all these SERP checkers or trackers out there you have a limited amount of keywords fore each level of profile you have. The basic ones usually have 5 to 10 keywords, but some allow you to track up to 25. The ones that allow you to track up to 25 are usually the ones I go for because they're usually cheaper than the competitors when you have a larger profile/keyword count.
Keyword Updating: I've been on some SERP trackers that update your keywords every few days, and that gets pretty annoying when you're in a crunch time situation. The services that I usually lean towards are the ones that update daily, or even every few hours. I may not be checking my rankings every few hours, but it's nice to know that I can check my rankings once a day and see exactly where they are for that day What features you should look for in the right serp tracker?
Types of Graphs: I've seen plenty of trackers get too fancy, and that's sometimes a turn off. I like the basic graphs that will show me a day to day ranking chart for the last 7 days, 2 weeks, 1 month, 6 month or yearly progression of my keywords. The ones that get super fancy tend to cost more because their servers have to be beefier and that means we pay more in the end, which isn't needed with basic graphs lol. I'm not checking my rankings to see how pretty a graph is, I just want to see where my keywords land What features you should look for in the right serp tracker?
Pricing: The amount I have to pay per month is a big seller for me. Right now I'm paying $24 a month to track up to 200 keywords with the option to add unlimited domains. If I had 200 domains and wanted to track 1 keyword each, I could do that. Some services charge $50+ for 100 keywords and 10 domains, so you don't have the same freedom. Just let me spread my wings!!!! lol What features you should look for in the right serp tracker?


These are some pretty basic things that I like in my SERP trackers, but I don't need all the bells and whistles to show me where my keywords are at in the rankings lol.

What do you guys and girls want to see in you SERP checker?

I've used Monitor Backlinks before to keep track of my keywords before and they were quite cool but a little pricey for my needs so I stopped using them.

I love being able to track all my keywords and I would love to find a nice, cheap place to track the keywords of my three websites.

When I was looking around about a year ago there were always such limitations on these services if they were affordable and then if there was anything available with more features it was so expensive it was crazy.

I would love a cheap way to track loads of keywords for a number of websites. It doesn't have to be fancy at all.

First of all, I need accuracy, I have a lot of non-English based websites and I usually need the positions for other Google domains, example: google.co.uk or google.ro.

Second for me is pricing, it needs to be accurate and show the real ranks but also to be cheap enough to make it worth it.
The number of keywords doesn't concern me very much, most trackers out there offer 100 or more keywords to keep track of and this is usually enough for most of my clients.

I also don't care how quickly I can update the positions as far as the tracker does it automatically every 24 hours.

It looks like tracking the SERP of your site is expensive. I can’t imagine paying $24 for that chore although I’m sure that you get the benefit which is worth more than what you had paid. But I guess that kind of service is for big websites only particularly the e-commerce site where you are selling something so that when you get more traffic from search engines, it is not only the Adsense that you earn from but also from the sales.
