Recently a new tool for Google was launched, which will look up the position of a website in their search for any given keyword.

This may not be an all too fancy idea, and has been done before by others, but none of the programs were web based, none of them was so fast, or for a matter of fact - free.

Google Inc. has approved the launch of this new service, thus anyone may use it to see how their websites rank for a keyword.

The URL is http://www.googlerankings.com

Pretty interesting - I was never able to see where I ranked without wading through pages of results for certain keywords. Nice!

Nifty.


Searching quoted strings works fine as well.

Only the field is not correctly re-filled after submitting as it does with unquotted strings

If you want to do more than 1 keyword at a time, try searching in Google for "1-click rankings" or go to webceo.com/freeware and there's a tool you can install that will check your keywords in almost every search engine out there (including Google australia, uk, us, france, etc.).

Be warned though --- using such a program is against Google's terms of service!

I wrote my own tool to do this using the Google API, but noticed that once in a while the results are slightly different between what the API returns and what I get when I search. I would think this tool uses the Google API, and will be plagued by the same problems if you study it enough.

Anybody else have the same experience with the API?

But then right under that is says

So is googlerankings.com a trademark of google inc or not!?!


I know it isn't, but I think that could be worded a bit better

The one I use, which in my opinion is better (also free) is http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/

It lets you store your keywords so you do not need to enter them every time. Also it lets you set your account to work as if it was from any country Google (http://www.google.com.au for example).

Looks good...

but I did a search for "Reticulated Pythons" with my domain name, and the googlerankings.com listed me as like #12, but when I actually do the search on Google, I'm on the first page with a couple below me.

I guess the googlerankings.com includes all the extra pages from the same domains & ommitted results that would normally rate higher than you.

Actually the Google web API pulls from a completely different data center then the Geo filtered results fed by the big 10.

It is generally a representation of ~ results to the central united states but even if you search google.com you will still be geo filtered based on area. For instance I am in Canada and currently Rank #7 for SEO at http://www.google.com but the Google web API and google.com from an American Proxy shows me at #5

As far as API tools goes Shawn's (Digital point) is by far the best and he is a great guy and friend so If you have any specific API questions feel free to email him or PM him at SEO Chat he'll be happy to answer

Well, hey, thanks SEO Guys, that certainly sheds a little light on a few things :)
