How to check website keyword ranking?
Hi there, Edmund here.
Most of the time, when I published an article, I would love to know how does it perform in the ranking withing the top search engine.
If it does not rank well with a certain keyword I choose, I would fine tune my article’s SEO and check again a few days later.
Do you wish to know how well your article rank too?
In this article, I am going to show you how I check my website ranking with my targeted keywords using Jaaxy.
I will also share with you what I would do to improve the SEO of my article if it’s website ranking is not at my targeted first page ranking.
Jaaxy Site Rank
I am going to use my Jaaxy Review article as an example here.
From the title of the article, it is obvious that I am using 2 keywords for my article ranking.
- Jaaxy Review (short keyword)
- What is the best keyword research tool for SEO (longtail keyword)
Now, I want to check how my article ranks for these 2 keywords.
I could do the tedious way by just typing the targeted keyword in Google search box and scroll down the results page by page to find my article’s rank. Not a time efficient way!
There are definitely some free tools out there that could help you find your site ranking.
But, I am going to use Jaaxy’s Site Rank to illustrate to you how simple it is to find out my article ranks for these 2 keywords.
How to check website keyword ranking? – Research
To find out how your article rank, all you have to do is to type in your targeted Keyword and your website URL. Simple as that!
Hit the [Search] button, and you’ll see this,
From the search results, you can see that my article is not performing very well in the ranking with the keyword “Jaaxy Review“.
Found in position 98, page 10 and despite it has 8 places improvement since I last checked.
Similarly, for “What is the best keyword research tool for SEO” keyword, I did not do well too.
Found in position 120, page 12 and it has dropped 14 places since I last checked.
So what can I do to improve the search ranking?
How to check website keyword ranking? – Improvement
“Jaaxy Review” keyword is a high competition according to my research earlier. However, since the keyword “Jaxxy Review” has given me a higher ranking comparing on the long tail one.
I will try to enhance my article’s SEO by the following.
- Change my title’s keywords position with “Jaaxy Review” in front now.
- Change my meta description to place “Jaaxy Review” as the first word.
- Adding “Jaaxy Review” keywords in the Alt-text of all images.
- Adding a few more “Jaaxy Review” keywords naturally within my article content.
That’s all I will do for now.
I will check if the ranking has improved a few days later to allow Google to re-index my page.
Please note that your newly written article may require a few days for Google’s spider to crawl your page and index your article.
Using Jaaxy Site Rank to search for your article ranking immediately after you published a new article is gonna to disappoint you.
Please be patient and focus on your other articles first. Alright? 🙂
Well, isn’t that simple?
I hope you have a better understanding of how to do your site ranking research using Jaaxy and how to improve your article for better ranking now.
I will update this article again if there are any changes of my ranking again.
