SEO is the most important strategy when it comes to website promotion, and in SEO, everything revolves around the Keywords. And, as Google is the most important search engines in the market, we consider checking the ranking of keywords in Google primarily to keep a track of the websites. To keep a track, keyword rank checking is imperative, and that you can do manually by searching for specific keywords. But, manual checking is tough and takes a lot of time. Thus, there are some tools designed by various developers that help you find out the ranking of your website or blog for specific keywords.

Install the add-on, open it, add the keywords, and domain to check the Google ranking of those keywords. You can later export the results into CSV document as well. Don’t use the tool too frequently to be safe from Google as if you use it too frequently, Google may block you.
