How To Find My Ranking
Posted 03 January 2004 - 08:43 AM
My first site got listed today in google and yahoo. How can I find my ranking in them?After checking the first 10 pages I gave up and thought my friends in "The Forum" must be able to show me a faster way.

Keep in mind that (apparently) the API has its own index, so you may find that results you get using this tool differ slightly from what you'd see if you searched manually, but as far as I know it's the only way to automatically query Google without going against their terms of service.

How do you know that?
My first site got listed today in google and yahoo.
One thing you might want to do is set your options in Google to view 100 listings at a time. If you've visited your site recently, the link will be a different color and will stand out in the listings.

But about Qwertys hint ,I ran into some problems. I did go to google an got an API and went to keyword tracker and opened an account. When I go in there and try to get my rank by giving them my hrl and the keyword I get a 9999 . That means google cant find me. Now, in the FAQ section of the site, this problem is mentioned but I dont understand the answer. This is what Im talking about:
I'm getting a 9999 (not found) ranking, but I know it should be in there.
Make sure your URL matches... are you entering http://www.yourdomain.com, but Google returns http://yourdomain.com for example? It does a simple pattern match, so if Google returns http://www.yourdomai...roducts/wigets/ for example, you could enter the URL in the keyword tool as the exact URL or something like: http://www.yourdomain.com or even just yourdomain.
Can you help me?

Do you mean that your site got spidered by google? if so then it will take about 36 -48 hours on average for them to update.

Just type allinurl:www.yourownsite.com you will see all the pages listed from your site,

For example, if Google has your site listed as http://domain.com, but you told the keyword tracking tool to find the ranking for www.domain.com, they may not see it.
So I guess the thing to do is search on domain.com on google and see what version of your URL comes up, then make sure that's what you entered at digitalpoint. After that, if you're still coming up with a 9999 for your keyword phrase, it means (assuming everything's working) that either your site doesn't rank for that phrase, or the API index doesn't contain the same information as the index you're querying at google.com.

When you say "paste it into google" you mean paste in keyword tracker? Because if that is what you mean, I already tried it and still same result.
As far as giving them my url is concerned, does it matter if I put / at the end or not? because when my site appears in the address bar it appears with a /. Any ways I tried it both ways and still same answer. But does it matter?
(I know that this is stupid question but had to ask it anyways)

This is really checking that google has not only visited, but has read your page, sometimes they hit a page, get some way down it then get stuck, so although you are in the database, your not fully indexed.

But I did manage to discover what qwerty means. And that had gotten me all tangeled up and confused. "Couldnt this guy come up with an easier more common name?" I asked myself. (Not that my name is common but it is at least easy to say) but suddenly it sparked It is all there. Right in front of my eyes. at the tip of my fingers
I have won one battle, I am yet to win the war with your help.

Also for digitalpoint you can enter www.domainname.com as the address and it will pull whatever page is used for the keyword under the domain.
Love that little tool... makes me look good... have 32 terms at number one and over a hundred on front page!!!
