Hi John, I'm not familiar with any tools that will go back in time to check your ranking reports. It would be difficult/impossible theoretically because that sort of service would need to store a copy of the serps/results for every keyword possible historically.

There are several tools that will provide you with your historical rankings over time once you start using them, so the best thing you can do is start tracking them now. One free service is digitalpoints tool here -

HI John,

There might be a few ways to get the keyword ranking data you are looking for but you might have to pay for it. Here are some of the keyword ranking tools both free and pay sites that I had some success with in the past:

Rank Checker
Web CEO
Ventio Google Position Tool
SEOMoz
Advanced Web Ranking
Rank Tracker
Accurate Monitor for Search Engines

If you check out the above keyword ranking tools you most likely will either be able to find the info you are looking for or be you should be able to track it very easily. If anyone has any other keyword ranking tools they use please do share as this is a subject I love to research on.

I am also very keen to know about this. Can we really check the past data concerning rankings? if it is then it would be great support to predict the future behaviour exactly.

Unfortunately, as with the stock market, "past performance is no guarantee of future results."

Knowing what your rankings were in the past might be fun to look at, but in terms of predicting your future rankings, it's useless.

If you want to check the progress of an optimization campaign, you'd do better to compare past traffic with current traffic. (You should be able to get past traffic figures from reviewing server log files.) Rankings are only useful if they bring you traffic. It doesn't really matter what previous rankings were unless the changes in rankings have resulted in more targeted traffic. If rankings have actually improved for useful search terms, comparative traffic reports should tell the tale.

Actually the task of SEO is to compile such rankings result to sooner compare the past result to the recent one.

The tools will provide you data since you started using it. It will not provide you the data for previous month. The Google analytics also offers a tool for which we need to set the keyword tracking option on.

I don't know any tool check ranking of last month. I use some tools for ranking position checker like seobook's rank checker, etc that show current rank position.

I discover a tool that can let you see the past design of the website. But as of today I cannot see a software or a website that can let you see the past rankings of the site.
