There are numerous paid and unpaid keyword research tools in market which are used to create bulk keyword rank reports. If you use paid tools then it is fine as they give precise reports and analytics; But if you use unpaid tools then you must use them with care.

Free Tools either it is for keyword ranking or anything else are not 100% precise. The report generated by them needs to be checked again manually for precision.

There are many tools to check keyword rank available online. Below are the few ones.
Paid: SEMRush, Ahref
Un Paid: Small SEO Tools

I prefer to use this method only if you have access to the Paid Tools. All Tools have different UI but main process to check the ranking is same. So Let's talk about checking Keyword Rank on Small SEO Tools.
