    What is the best way to check local ranking for a keyword?

    Wondering if there is any good way to check your local ranking for a keyword, i mean on the map and local pack, is there any useful tool? or maybe i have to go inside cognito mode in browser and search?

    Re: What is the best way to check local ranking for a keyword?

    Hi, At the moment I am currently using a keyword tracking tool called SERPWoo.

    From the moment you put in your keywords and URL, it will monitor your rankings as well as the other top two pages of Google. So you can keep an eye on your competitors movements. It's quite cheap as well compared to other rank checker tools.

    Re: What is the best way to check local ranking for a keyword?

    Jonathan, does SERPWoo track local pack results right? Cuz many of the standard SEO tools don't. I have not personally tried that one.

    The most popular for local are

    BrightLocal

    WhiteSpark

    Places Scout (which is off the market right now but their new web based version is almost out)

    And Authority Labs is one traditional SEO tracker that seems to do pretty well with local, last I checked.

    Re: What is the best way to check local ranking for a keyword?

    Hi Linda, sorry I have misread. I thought gsmithmike was just looking for a rank tracker for local organic. No SerpWoo does not track local pack results. But it's really useful for tracking other local competitors shifts as it keeps a historical record of rankings from when you plug your keywords in.

    Ya I didn't think it did local.

    Ya he said local rank tracking on the map and local pack.

    Re: What is the best way to check local ranking for a keyword?

    Linda, i have checked white spark, but i would like to know if it is accurate, as when i search for same keyword myself i see a different ranking in local than the one i use with the software. Is there anyway you can manually check the ranking and be accurate about it?

    Let me know

    thanks

    Mike

    Since Pigeon lots of rank trackers are not reporting the correct rankings. Not sure if Whitespark found a workaround, but I thought they did.

    Yes manually checking can be the most accurate. Just impossible to do if you have tons of clients.

    Most use Chrome logged out or in incognito mode to minimize personalization.
    Set location to the city the listing is in.

    CC, co-founder of SERPWoo here. I just wanted to chime in to clear any confusion. Unfortunately currently we are not monitoring maps or local packs results. In the future we plan on, but at the moment that option is not available. We'll make announcements to our customer base once it does become available.
