Is there any way you can find out where the major engines rank your site?

If I type in my keywords, I just cant seem to find my site, no matter how far I go (doesnt sound good, does it??).

So is there a search term I can type in, along with my url, that will tell me where I'm ranked?

I find mcdar.net is quite handy - but its .com orientated (I get much higher in uk listings) Digitalpoint are also very good but only when you are higher up in the listings. I know at the start when i first started optimising things I wanted to see if they made a change so it was nice to have a look at mcdar.net as that shows upto 1000 placements whereas most do upto 30, or 100.

I used to use globalpromoter.com 's tools but IMO I dont think they are very accurate now.

DP is great, but it only goes 200 deep or so. also you are limited to the amount of queries by the google APi. Sometimes you like to know where a page is after you have unleashed it on the world. Dp will give you an N/A if it is outside the top 200, whereas GR & YR will allow you to track movement within the top 1000.

And particularly when used in combination with the Google Toolbar PageRank meter, frothing lunacy is assured!

If you're in the top 3 pages of the SERPs, this tool will may come in handy.

I tried the demo (Web CEO) given at the Search Engine Strategies conference and have used Webposition Gold in the past. Web CEO seemed very user friendly and to the point. I was wonder what anyone else thought about either program.

If you do a search on the forum, I believe you'll find that both of these have been discussed here a couple of times before.

Long story, short...

Good software solutions can provide an assist and help to save time when analyzing things. They never have and never will be able to create a truly unique and engaging web site. One that will convert. That requires a real human with real experience and a real brain.

Used with discretion, software can help to save time. If you're looking for anything more than that, you're wasting your time and money.

The only benefit I have ever received from any SEO software program is the ability to generate ranking reports which then usually have to be human edited. Other than that, nothing can replace the human element.

Yep, as Brian said, they've been discussed, and discussed and discussed.

Bottom line...use whichever you like. They both have free trials so you can check them out.

Agree with what's been said above; I find the most useful thing about these packages is the ability to easily track rankings across various SEs for categories of keywords. However...my two cents if you did want to get one. I originally was using WPG and have now switched to Web CEO; it's night and day how much better designed it is and easier to use. But I don't think the optimization advice on either is worth much. Much better off reading the tips from experienced folks here and elsewhere.
