Results reflect the quality of SEO work that has been done. The most obvious result is organic ranking on page one of Google without having to use paid ads. However, there are some tools available on the internet that you can use for free to check the ranking performance of your site in search engines throughout the process.
Rankchecker is a freemium service that allows you to check the standing of your site for specific keywords. All you need to do is register for a free account and you will then be able to check up to 5 keywords. It also gives you suggestions and warnings about things that you need to improve on in your site.
2. Google Analytics
If you have good SEO, your website will appear in the top pages of search engines. When that happens, traffic or the volume of users visiting your website will also increase. Google Analytics gives you the ability to track the traffic and also enables you to filter the data to see where the traffic came from, what device was used, how long the user stayed in your page and if the user came from a search engine or just typed your website’s URL directly. (Note: when you participate in Wordflirt’s maintenance program, you will receive monthly website traffic reports).
3. Google Webmaster tools
You can use this tool to test if your website can be crawled or is visible to bots used by search engines. It also checks if you have a sitemap available and flags any errors in your website like missing titles, invalid links and even spammy content.
It is important that you track the progress or any improvements in your site’s ranking. Numbers do not lie. Using the tools that we mentioned above gives you an overview and provides the data necessary to formulate a good judgment as to whether you or the company that you are working with has built an effective SEO campaign.
