With strong competition online, content writing optimization techniques keep on changing. Publishers today need to make extra efforts to keep a close eye on how well their content is performing in search results and track the Google Rank of their published content. Winning organic traffic today is no different from a turtle and rabbit race where the smart and consistent wins the race. If you are not tracking the SERPs ranking of your blog posts then you are giving an edge to your competitor. Maintaining a top position in search results is extremely important. 90% of all the clicks made on search pages include the top 20 search results. You need to make sure your content exists in this top list for your primary keyword.

What is WebTextTool Page Tracker Tool?
The webtexttool Page Tracker allows bloggers to track the Google rank of their published content for a given keyword. It gives you insights on the position of your webpage, for the entered keyword, in Google. Once you have published your blog post, you can then use this tracking functionality to keep a close eye on how well your content is performing in Google search results pages. WebTextTool (WTT) will inform you with weekly updates and will keep you informed about the Rank status of your webpage.
Just recently we published a review on PublicityClerks and we wanted to see where do we stand in SERPs. For this after we were done optimizing the review post using WTT editor, we enabled the Page Tracking functionality to track its position in Google search pages.
Following are the steps you can follow to track the Google rank of any page you want:
1 Log in your WebTextTool account
2 Create a New Page, choose your keyword and head straight to WTT editor. If you are new to WTT then you can read the following tutorial for a healthy start.
3 Towards the top-left of your webtexttool editor, click the Page tab.
4 From the drop down menu select Page Tracker (beta)
5 Inside the new popup window insert your Page URL that you wish to track and choose the Google domain. The Google Country Domain should be related to your desired targeted country for organic traffic.
The keyword is taken from the current page you are optimizing in webtexttool.
You do not need to write the entire article inside WebTextTool just to track its Google Rank. You can simply create a blank page with your Focus Keyword and then start tracking any blog post of your site which contains this keyword.
6 Click Start Tracking and WTT will then start tracking the rank and the optimization score. You can see the progress inside the Page Tracker popup anytime you want. Within next 15 minutes you will receive an email from WTT informing you about the Page score and Google Rank of your webpage.
