Although we are in the holiday period I am spending a few days to complete a work commissioned by the Themis Foundation (Part of the World Tourism Organization) and I had to check the positioning of a website. My surprise was great when I found that some of the tools I normally use, no longer work or are paid now (and therefore not be able to use them in class with my students). So here's this article updating the list of tools that will help us to know our position in Google.
This is by far the best tool to know our position for certain key phrases. But it only works if three circumstances:
- Google Analytics have access to the web.
- Google Analytics is properly configured and connected to Google Webmasters (if you know how to do it here I'll explain: Connecting Google Analytics with Google Webmasters )
- Our SEO is well done and as we position for the key phrases (otherwise, Google Analytics will not tell the position of our website)
Find information about our position in: Google Analytics -> Purchase -> SEO -> Queries.
Unfortunately I do not, at work I should finish this holiday, access to Google Analytics website ... I must use other tools.
For me this is one of the best tools today. In its free version it allows multiple searches and the results offered are useful as they can be segmented by country and by search engine.

Google Position Checker tool
This is also a good tool for monitoring the position of a website in Google. 100% free. Even if you only indicates the position if you are among the top 300 search results ... but it is more than enough.
This used to be 100% free and my favorite tool. Now only it allows you to make a certain number of searches per day with the free version. In class it does not work because it detects multiple connections from the same IP (the university) and blocks searches.
In SEM RUSH we find our position if we are in the top 20 of Google for "Google organic results," plus another equally important for good SEO strategy information. You can also create a free project monitoring: SEM Rush -> Projects -> New Project.
Still a good tool.

Well, I hope this article has been helpful.
