AccuRanker Review – Best Keyword Position Tracker?
Tracking keywords is not an easy task when you do it using a slow SEO tool.
This is why you should take a look at Accuranker.
AccuRanker is one of the fastest keyword rank trackers for SEO, and in this review, you’ll learn:
- What it is and how it can help you
- How its features can help you grow your online business.
- It’s pros and cons; pricing and everything in-between
AccuRanker is a keyword position tracking tool that allows you to track your website’s or blog’s rank on Google and other search engines. It allows you to select target keywords and monitor their position on SERPs round the clock.
AccuRanker is a simple rank tracker above all. However, simple does not mean “not sophisticated.”
In fact, the tool is quite robust and boasts a bunch of features other rank tracking tools can only dream of having.
Here’s what AccuRanker can do.
Grump is their mascot; Grump the tiger. When you click on the icon, it shows you how Google is doing that day. So this is not a keyword tracking feature but a search engine tracking one.
So, if you see a sleeping or chilling person together, it means SERPs are calm, and there are only normal everyday fluctuations.
However, if you see an angry and ferocious beast, you know Google is updating its algorithm, and there are massive shakeups in the search engines.
This is a crucial feature because you need to know when an update is happening, so you don’t freak out when your keywords suddenly go wild across the board.
You can easily integrate AccuRanker with a host of other tools and apps, the most important of which are:
- Google Search Console and Google Analytics – you need these to accurately track your site.
- CSV importer- so you can import spreadsheets from other tools and track your competitor rankings and their keyword list. Because your competition is not going to hand over their precious data to you.
Here you can:
- Manage your subscriptions,
- upgrade or downgrade accounts;
- Check your integrations
- Add profile images
You can also enable sub-accounts if you need separate accounts for members of your team.
if you’re an internet marketer growing your affiliate site, then you probably won’t be needing this tool.
Reporting is more for SEO agencies.
When a client approaches their SEO agency and asks for a report on how their business is doing in Google, the agency can then quickly generate these reports with a click of the button along with beautiful charts and graphs to help the non-SEO savvy business owner understand what is going on with their site.
Here you can add the new domain you want to track to do it go “Add Domain” and fill in empty fields.
An important setting here is “Default search engine, locale and location” Make sure you select the region you want to track and, of course, the search engine that matters the most to your business.
AccuRanker allows you to have multiple projects running at the same time.
And here you can divide them into groups, so you don’t get confused, about which is which. I only have one project because this is just for demonstration purposes, but I could have ten projects as AccuRanker allows it.
You might have noticed that even though this is the first and topmost on the left sidebar, it’s the last one I cover here?
It’s because there’s lots of ground to cover.
So, I click on “Dashboard” and am presented with websites I’m tracking for this location. As my example website, I chose bforbloggers.com and gave 25 keywords to AccuRanker to track.
I did it manually just to test it out. But when you do it, you’ll be able to import a keyword list spreadsheet as a CSV file, which will give you a bunch of keywords to track. However, keep in mind the cheapest plan lets you track 1,000 keywords.
And the more keywords you add, the more expensive it gets. And fast.
So I click on the link and I am presented with a basic overview of how bforbloggers.com fares in Google and Bing.
I can see :
- rankings on desktop and mobile
- the average rank data for all keywords (that I added)
- major site competitors
- SOV Share of Voice – How many of his keywords are in the top 20.
From there, I click on the “keywords” tab, which is the most important one.
Ok. Now I can see:
- Keywords data
- the location where AccuRanker is tracking rankings
- rank data – AccuRanker record only the first ten pages of Google SERPs
- URL of the page ranking for a specific keyword
- search-monthly search volume in a particular region
- share of voice- is the keyword in the top 20
- SERP features are the SERP overcrowded? if yes, not a valuable keyword
- created on- when did AccuRanker start to track this keyword?
Also, now when you click on a keyword, AccuRanker spits out some more data to work with.
I clicked on the keyword “Missinglettr pricing.”
Here’s what I got:
So you can see it:
- ad competition
- Estimated visitors count
- Share of voice
- Share of voice translated into $
- View SERPs- if you want to manually check the first page
My pro tip for you
This is just a sample of 28 keywords for demonstration purposes only.
When you want to seriously track your website and its keywords, use SEMRush, scan your site, and export your keywords. Then filter them based on their importance to your business.
With the basic AccuRanker plan, you get 1000 keywords to track is more than enough for almost anybody.
Here are a few more points about Accuranker:
- Very fast- you get your keyword reports in minutes; not hours
- Very simple to use- it took me 15m to grasp it thoroughly, and I’m no tech wizard.
- Very accurate- in the beginning. I checked manually just to see how accurate AccuRanker was. Instead, I saw how spot-on its reporting is. I’m impressed!
- Customer support is excellent – I had no problems with the tool whatsoever, but other AccuRanker reviews (from Capterra, G2, and Trustradius) all say support is fantastic. And I believe them
- You can group keywords easily via tagging- very important to be organized, especially when tracking multiple websites.
- You can connect with Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools
- You can import keywords from other tools (SEMrush, Ahrefs…)
- You can track and spy on your competitors’ rankings
- You can add multiple domains
And the list goes on and on.
In case you haven’t caught on- AccuRanker is AMAZING.
However, it does have a few chinks in its armor.
#1- Not a free tool- AcuuRanker at this price is a steal, but still- free is free.
#2- Can be addictive. This is more about how you behave than what the tool does. But if you’re checking it every hour to see how you fare in Google and Bing. If there has been any change, then you need to reconsider your business priorities.
#3- AccuRanker is somewhat superfluous.
What do I mean?
For example, Ahrefs and SEMrush offer keyword rankings as well as everything else (they’re all-in-one SEO tools). However, AccuRanker is much better at tracking keywords as it updates daily and is much more accurate.
I especially find that Ahrefs is way off with their keyword position tracking, while SEMrush is better, though not nearly as good as AccuRanker.
If you want to track 1k keywords, you will need to pay $109, and that is the cheapest plan available.
But there’s also a 10% discount if you purchase a yearly subscription (then it is $99 per month, paid in one payment)
Tracking keywords is excellent and all, but it’s only a part of your overall SEO strategy. You still need to invest in other tools to do better keyword research, to source new backlinks, to build new landing pages… and a bunch of others.
You need to track your keywords as it helps you track your progress.
It will help you tremendously when a new Google algorithm update comes or when your competitors boost their SEO to outrank you.
If you want to grow your organic search engine traffic and if you’re serious about your SEO, you need to know where you stand at all times and as accurately as possible.
And AccuRanker is the tool to get the job done.
But don’t just trust my word. Instead, take it for a free 14-day-trial and see for yourself.

You really have nothing to lose.
Can you elaborate on how to use the grouping feature? I have clients using AccuRanker, where I have my clients as sub-accounts, but would the grouping feature make sense to use here?
Definitely. It allows you to create a group to track a set of keywords. Let’s say you have 3 websites out of which one is yours and the other 2 of your clients. You can create group of all three different websites and track separate keywords. Or, if you have a static website and a blog, you can create two groups one belonging to your blog and another to your website. That’ll help you track your website and blog separately on the same account in a much more organized way.
