All webmasters are trying their best to improve rankings in order to beat the competition and gain “Traffic”. It is essential to keep track of keywords and rankings. By analyzing this crucial data you understand where you should focus your efforts. There are a bunch of free tools out there that we use on a daily basis. But sometimes, those tools are not enough.
This is when advanced analytic tools come into play. One of those tools I am reviewing today.

How It Works
The sign-up process is very fast. You just enter your email and they send you a password.
Then you create a new project. You put a name, domain (can check subdomains as well)
You add keyphrases and you can sort them in groups.
Choose one or more search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo), check device type (desktop, mobile, tablet), choose a country from the list, region, city, language.
You can receive email notifications when the conditions selected are met for a specific action. You can add users and/or competitors. And the last tab is “SEO History” where you can describe events in a convenient window.
When you finish a message informs: The checks have started, the data is being processed. While we’re working you can add a new project or add competitors. Cool stuff! Moreover, they send out an email when the process has completed including the URL for the results.
The application executed my first searches in around 10 minutes. I had entered 13 keywords. The results page is very descriptive and helpful.
There are separate tables for each search engine. It displays the monthly volume for the keywords, the date, the URL in search results. There are also tabs where you can refine the results (days, weeks. months).
I believe that the app can save you tons of time. For example, you can check your rankings for specific keywords in the Google Webmasters Tool (now search console). But the free app of Google is slow as you have to enter each keyword manually and check the results. And of course, you have to take notes, to compare keyword rankings at later times. But the AntRanks app does exactly that. It gives results for keywords altogether and keeps notes on the dashboard so you don’t have to.

Owners – Domain
The whois database indicates the registration date for the domain antranks.com, 15 May 2014. The name Sergei Vasilenkov appears as the registrant.
Update: September 2020
They announced that AntRanks can be connected to Google Data Studio!
This means that you can visualize and analyze your AntRanks data through Data Studio.
What I liked the most is that the app gives results on all the major search engines so you can compare the results between them, all on the same page. You only upload a list of keywords and let the app do the rest. Using the webmasters’ tools of Google and Bing is a slow process and you can only check one keyword at a time.
The daily reports are practical and can give you exact directions on how to improve your rankings. The summary of percentages in rankings growth or decline can show you if you are on the right track.
So let’s say you are trying to build links for a particular keyword or set of keywords in order to improve rankings and the position of your website in the SERPs. When you manage to get a few backlinks you can instantly check the rankings changes using the AntRanks app. The tool can determine if you made a good job.
Moreover, the app tests your property’s average rankings from the date you started using it.
That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time.
