If the tornado known as the Google Helpful Content Update has passed through your portfolio of websites, you may be wondering what the *** is going on with your rankings!
Of course, big cats like Semrush, Ahrefs, and SERPRobot are laughing all the way to the bank as we try to make sense of just where exactly our sites are visible online.
If you want to spend more time growing your site than typing in 1000s of keywords or ogling SERP results I want you to take a look at PeakSERP, a quick, simple, and super cheap SEO tool that I think is a great alternative to SERPRobot.
What is PeakSERP?
PeakSERP is a simple, affordable rank tracker, that will track the position of your web pages in search engine page results for the keywords you choose.
It was founded earlier this year by Zak Kann and is proving to be a great alternative to SERPRobot. PeakSERP’s nifty bots continually monitor the position of your website, delivering performance across a handful of key metrics on a daily or weekly basis.
I have found PeakSERP to be one of the easiest ways to assess the visibility of my site but also navigate the SERP fluctuations so I can adjust my SEO strategy.
Cui bono? PeakSERP is a great fit for…
- Busy bloggers
- Affiliate marketers
- Independent online publishers
- Small biz
- Site owners
- Digital marketers
Seriously, it’s a super-accessible tool that just about anyone can get some value out of. PeakSERP also bypasses a lot of the hassle of typing in a zillion individual keywords by offering simple XML-sitemap exports.
Daily and weekly tracking with separate desktop and mobile rankings provide the oversight you need. And unlike many of the more established rank trackers, it’s cost-effective as you’ll see below.
PeakSERP vs SERPRobot
Let’s be honest. SERPRobot was a go-to for many of us but it just keeps getting more and more expensive and though it’s the current market leader, I feel that PeakSERP provides all the features of SERPRobot with better functionality at a lower price. Here’s how the two line up:
|Unlimited rank-tracking projects||Unlimited rank-tracking projects|
|Results across 100+ Search languages and400+ Search regions||Accurate global and local Google search volumes|
|Adjustable update frequency and data retention for up to three year||Real-time performance reports and historic data graphs|
|Generate keywords directly from your domain||Custom keyword tags|
|Track competitors||Track competitors|
|Desktop or mobile rankings||Individual keyword entry|
|SERPRobot data import|
For me, the XML-sitemap import has made a massive difference to me, saving time on adding new keywords each time I publish an article or post.
Just use the XML-sitemap to add keywords in bulk and track hundreds of keywords at a keystroke. I also note the cheeky import from SERPRobot, but CSV export would be a great additional feature.
PeakSERP key SEO metrics
You can be confident that PeakSERP gets to the point and gives you a targeted overview of your ranking position without unnecessary metrics cluttering your data. The key metrics provided are:
- Average position
- 1st page
- Top 3
- Top 10
- Top 100
Just remember that when you first set up PeakSERP it will take about 24 hours to get any meaningful results.
Helpfully PeakSERP also tracks Google updates and other seismic SEO events so you can see how your site rankings are impacted and track progress (or recovery).
How to set up PeakSERP
With a portfolio of sites, introducing a new SEO tool can be a real hassle, without much meaningful gain.
But I’m pleased to say that I’ve been able to successfully make the leap from SERPRobot to PeakSERP without a hitch.
Here is a step by step guide to how to get started on PeakSERP, with photos:

PeakSERP pricing and offer
One thing I like about PeakSERP is the simple low pricing. It makes this rank-tracker budget-friendly, so you can keep using it without watching the balance sheet.
Daily tracking of 75 keywords costs as little as $5 per month, with pricing and keywords scalable according to your needs. 1500 tracked keywords cost 100 dollars per month.
