There is a point in every SEO's development where you graduate from Google Search Console to a paid Rank Tracking tool.
That point usually comes when you realize that rank trackers don’t just offer you an accurate picture of your rankings, but also give you a host of analytics tools you can use to get a deeper understanding of your rankings.
And who doesn’t love gleaning actionable insights from data?
However, one of the difficulties you might find when making the transition is that Search Console picks keywords for you. Rank Trackers, on the other hand, only give you data based on the keywords you choose.
This leaves you with the difficulty of deciding which keywords to track.
