What is the best way to check your own site for keyword rankings, eg if I wanted to target a new phrase and wanted to check the progress of its ranking – what is the best way to check it? Should I just search Google and scroll through the results? Tommo, London, UK

    Twitter allows you to favorite a tweet. You can use that, since Favorite Tweets have separate RSS Feed Location. So, you can pull that RSS Feed to any RSS? Reader on your website. To share,
    all you have to do, is? click the star button to favorite a tweet.

    SEO is an every changing world where we need to cope up with the latest techniques and strategies to optimize our websites. Google always change its algorithm to avoid people to manipulate their search results and improve the quality of search. ?

    very useful and nice? video..

  28. alphabert77 January 18, 2012 at 11:28 am

    Get into your niche, relate to people that matter in your niche, use social media to bring people to your website, connect with your (potential) customers. He doesn’t mention the Search API, because he doesn’t have to (Google TOS: ‘do not send automated queries to? Google’) and because it’s besides his point (see comment below).

  29. alphabert77 January 18, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    You are right that you need some focus on some keywords, especially when your website is new. In that case you don’t have any userdata, you don’t how people are using your website and you don’t get links from other websites, because no one knows your website exists. Matt just don’t want you to have a complete focus on rankings (not visitors) and turning your site into a desperate keyword stuffed website, obsessed with rankings while you have? ‘smaller fish to fry’ (long tail).

  30. kinfair January 18, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Chrome has a beta traffic tracking toolbar that displays the general PR of a sit with google, bing,? yahoo etc.

  33. finalwebsites January 18, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    Nice one Matt, internet marketing is not only about rankings!
    For those are looking for this information, there is some great function on GWT.
    Access the “search queries” section and find information like impressions, clicks and landing pages for your keywords. This information is not 100% exact (and not real time), but gives an good idea what’s on with your site.?

  34. ScienceAround January 18, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    @redflymarketing? yup, monies change everything

  35. ScienceAround January 18, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    @thrillerboy20 it’s called “rank? checker” tools. seobook. com/firefox/rank-checker/

  36. thrillerboy20 January 18, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    @ScienceAround? What addon would that be?

  37. manfmnantucket January 18, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    OK there you go again, recommending to consider the long tail of search – that is exactly what the mayday update seems to have killed? off, though – it doesn’t work that way anymore…

  38. lepensky January 18, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    checking your server logs? Why not Analytics and Webmaster tool? They? have history and progress.

  39. dyoungprod January 18, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    There was an easier answer & more obvious answer – the position reporting Google already provides in Webmaster? Tools.

  40. redflymarketing January 18, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    @gthing32 EXACTLY! Matt, as nice ad all as he is always seems to forget that we’re running a business (most of us), not a blog site where there’s nothing to track but engagement. Yet? another video where Matt has glossed over the original questions with some predictable Google boilerplate.

  41. redflymarketing January 18, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    @bigal21110 Fair enough, you are right, but he should know better than to expect that we will all just check our rankings manually. This gives us the “Sorry, you don’t look like a human to us, please use another search engine” message.

    I completely agree and understand why Google don’t want automatic queries, that’s why we use the search APIs. Google should know that webmasters DO this so why not give the best advice? possible?

    I makes sense to track your keyword rankings, even for the UX

  42. babbababba2007 January 18, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Matt, this is not an proper answer for the question “What is the best way to check your own site for keyword rankings? “….?

  43. antwakefield January 18, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    Exactly what planet does Matt Cutts? live on???

  44. theylmdl January 18, 2012 at 8:51 pm


    Nice point and I fully agree – watch your logs, not the SERPs. What about supporting us webmasters by adding the “cd” GET-parameter to the conventional search result referrers (“/search?”) like the are passed with the “/url?” referrer type? This would help us a lot on our way to a better analysis. I’ve already suggested this (to JohnMu) at the german GWMT.

    In my case, only a third? of the google referrer URLs come in with the /url format _and_ position data.

    Regards, Thomas

  45. bigal21110 January 18, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    @redflymarketing thumbs up but i don’t think he is missing the point…just? remember he is working FOR GOOGLE so he has to be political.

  46. redflymarketing January 18, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Sorry Matt, completely missing the point. If we KNOW what keywords convert and we KNOW what keywords generate the highest ROI, why? NOT target those keywords? Why not check the progress of that keywords?

    I think you miss the point with a lot of your videos completely as you don’t have ROI to measure, you don’t have revenue generating keywords that you need to track. You should bear this in mind when doing future videos.

    I notice that you didn’t even mention the search API?

  47. figurethis2 January 18, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    webmasters will always check their rankings, its part and parcel of? it. (also gives us something to obsess over)

  48. VorticonCmdr January 18, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Thanks for the answer. But sounds like Google is really helpless. I happed to have? that problem (big penalty) and there wasn’t even a simple hint in the Webmaster Tools. What should I do when I must/want that particular domain because it’s my name/trademark/… ?

    I am sorry but for me it sounds like Google did surrender to the spammers but not solving the problem in order to help us “normal” guys.


  49. djpaisley January 18, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Matt… Boss is asking the question, how can we? do this today?
    (i am testing multiple tools to see if they work or not and asking therm if they violate GWG… and she keeps asking me for this one thing.. BUT.. i told her we can’t violate the GWG rules… HELP!)

  50. djpaisley January 19, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Will the Ajax API be able exported to some type of report, etc? Via Google analytics? Google Webmaster Tools? For Historical Data to show SEO Clients? Great advice on video .. we know what phrases convert, etc.. but need? to show client progress on those terms as justification for SEO payments.
