Default Easy Way To Find Out Ranking?

Say I want to see how a particular site ranks for a particular key word or keyword phrase. Other than manually entering it into Google, Yahoo, etc, and scrolling to see if the site shows up anywhere, is there an easier (and free) way to do this?

at the moment we do it manually...I'd think this is best for accuracy, but is very time consuming.

Hi Amir, try DigitalPoint's keyword ranking tool

http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/

You'll need to signup for an API, but it is free and keep tracks of your rankings over time with a simple graph

Default Google Toolbar

You can install the Google Toolbar from here:

http://www.google.com/toolbar

That will tell you the page rank of every page you go to, so you can check your competition as well.

Hi, Amir

I would recommend semrush.com and rank checker for seobook.com for this purpose.

Have a nice day,

Yeah, definitely use a tool. Checking by hand is horrendous and kills your turn over time on a simple task such as finding out where you rank?
