Local SERP analysis

The SERP checker tool by Ahrefs allows you to see real-time search results from any location, without a need to use proxies and location-specific IP addresses.

Local SERP analysis

Search results differ widely depending on the location you search from. Use our tool to pull and analyze SERPs from over 100 countries.

Evaluate ranking difficulty

Ranking difficulty varies by country because it depends on the top-ranking pages of each particular local SERP.

Ahrefs SERP checker gives you an accurate ranking difficulty score and detailed SEO stats for the top10 search results. This let’s you see the whole picture and make informed decisions based on your own experience.

For every top-ranking page, we show you a number of backlink metrics that can help you gauge the competition and understand the ranking difficulty of a keyword:

  • Domain Rating (DR) shows you how strong the backlink profile of a website is. The higher the DR, the more authoritative the link is.

  • URL Rating (UR) shows you the backlink profile strength of a specific URL. This metric has the highest correlation with rankings.

  • Backlinks count shows you the number of inbound links pointing to a URL.

  • Domains count is where you can see the number of unique referring domains that point to a URL.

If you want to transition from raw numbers to the actual linking websites or pages, you can do that with just one click, which takes you to our Site Explorer tool.

Ahrefs boasts the largest backlink database, so you can be sure our backlink stats and SEO metrics are accurate.

Analyze organic search traffic

Ahrefs SERP checker shows you how much organic search traffic top results get from all the keywords they rank for.

Once you know which pages on the SERPs get the most traffic, you can analyze them in Site Explorer to replicate their success.

This traffic estimate data is exclusive to our SERP checker. You won't find it in any other similar tool.

SERP position history

Some SERPs are solid as a rock, so it’s extremely hard to outrank the top results. But some are more dynamic, which means you have a chance to rank in the top (or even get #1).

SERP position history

Ahrefs' SERP checker tool has a feature called “SERP position history”, which allows you to see historical rankings of the current top5 ranking pages. Based on their historical ranking patterns, you can guess whether the search engine is satisfied with the SERP and won't let anything new in, or it’ll be happy to promote other relevant pages to the top to see what happens.

Cross-integration with Ahrefs tools

To make your SERP analysis more immersive, we’ve integrated our SERP checker into several Ahrefs tools.

SERP position history

In the Organic Keywords section of Site Explorer, you can pull any keyword's cached SERP with the main SEO metrics of search results. You can analyze up to 100 top positions on search there.

In Keywords Explorer, the SERP checker will only show you the top10 ranking pages, but there it will be a real-time SERP, not the cached one.
