Default Finding My Site On Google?

Is there an easier way to find out where you are listed in googles search rankings without just typing in a keyword and start scrolling? I know I'm not high up there but just wondering how far I have to go.

One method is to use the advance search function google provides. Enter keyword, select 100 results per page. Then do a CTRL + F to search that page for your url.

My preference, track referral url in stats to see which page visitors are coming from. Those are really the only rankings that matter. If page=2 then result between 11 and 20, etc.

another simple option if you know how to program is create a php file that reads the contents of each successive page of google's results and does a string search through each one to see if it contains your link.

Hi jinxjg21, that reminds me ... the Keyword Tracker program provides that sort of functionality for those who don't know how to program that. It's free, tracks rankings over time and even provides nice little charts.

He doesn't want to find his inbound and outbound links - he wants to find out where his website ranks for a keyword.

I use www.seoserp.com.

I recently was introduced to Google Analytics

http://analytics.google.com

It might help you understand the dynamic a bit more.
