An effective trick to find a website's ranking in all search engines
quickly and accurately!

In Google, Fast and in Yahoo you use "advanced search" and change the
results to 100 per page. In AltaVista and in Msn (my preferences)
change the results to 50 per page.

:)Put in your appropriate keyword - get the "search results"

:) Press the "Control F" Keyboard shortcut simultaneously in *Internet Explorer...

:) Put your URL in the "Find what" search box...
(Copy your url & press "Control V" (paste) after that)

:) Press "Find Next"... other "enter" keyboard button ...

:) You will automatically scroll down to your hightlighted website's
listing

* (This technique works even better in Netscape 6+ because the query is
cached in the find box and the box stays up as you navigate to
different pages.)
(The approximately percentage near the bottom 1-100%,
represents the approximate RANKING of your site 1-100. You can then
refine your search.)
(If you don't want to use "Control F" using "Edit "--> "FIND (on this
page)" in the browser menu bar will do.

(If you anticipate going through many pages,
copy & past (Control V) after "Control F")

Put your URL in EXACTLY as it appears in the search engine.
Each page represents 100 web sites, so page 2 will start at 101-2,
page 3 from 201-300 etc.

~ ~ ~ ~ Google Optimization & Placement: ~ ~ ~ ~
Around the forth week of every month Google tentatively updates it's
database-offering a preview that's about 90% accurate of the next
month's rankings and added sites.

There is also:
http://www3.google.com/
However, the results are less dependable.

This Google "Meta-Search" Tool Searches Google's Three Databases:

As well as Google websites from several countries,
it is similar to Google's "advanced search" and allows for fully customized seaches, including 100 results-per- page. )

Because Google can change it's ranking algorithms and "linking to"
assessments periodically, you will often find "test results" on these
sites. (Also, if a web site has not been re-"cached" by this time it
may temporarily fall down a few postions until it is re-cached, or it
may drop off Google completely).

~ ~ DECREASING AND TRACKING 404 ERRORS SIMPLY: ~ ~

Depending how your Apache Server is set up, a request for your Main Page may scour these options:

index.html (Usually First)
index.shtml
index.htm
default.html
default.htm
home.html
home.htm
INDEX.HTM
index.mv
index.php
index.php3
index.phtml
index.cgi
welcome.html

If you suspect you hosting company is negligent, or you are concerned about how many 404 errors and lost visitors you might be having, several alternatives exist if you can not design a custom 404 page, or your server administrator is not allowing them.

Taking your HTML code from your main page and duplicating them on any of the above extensions and adding a seperate tracker, or simply adding a link or a Meta-Redirect to your home page and analyzing your referrer logs will suffice.

If using Microsoft IIS 404.asp pages can be constructed.[/color]

Hey great post. (sorry for the url snip there, but the tool posts/drops have gotten out of hand. there's dozens [50?] of those things out there now - we had to call it quits somewhere).

>find
If you use opera, you can just do "f keyword" in the address bar to find the first occurrence, and then f3 to search again without any dialog in the way.
