But your work does not end there. Most NewBie Bloggers don’t track their rankings regularly or at least weekly, then lose out on a lot of traffic on their old articles which slowly ranks down because you were not tracking it and making the necessary changes in it.

Also many get discouraged by seeing the pricing of the Paid Rank Checking Tools. They can be very costly and not affordable for everyone who has just started out or is not earning much through their blogs.

Let me introduce to you a free tool named as Serpocope which lets you track unlimited keyword rankings for free.

  1. nice Article. It’s great to read content from someone who actually has something to say – rather than content that feels like it’s just there for the sake of being there Some keen insight for me, and others I’m sure.

  2. Nice tutorial. Is it possible to add / buy more IP’s with Amazon like you can with an OVH VPS when you run Serposcope? As opposed to using Proxies. You need them for when you have a lot of keywords to check…

    • In Amazon, you can add other ips but would not recommend that as it does not come under the free tier and you will be charged a lot. As there is already proxy management functionality available under serposcope you can buy proxies from buy-proxies.org for 10$ and easily use them. you can even use IPv6 proxies with serposcope. The proxy manager might show error when you add IPv6 proxies in it but the job gets done with those easily. And also IPv6 proxies are much cheaper when compared to Ipv4.
