hey guys i am very new at this. I wanted to find out how i can know where i am in the google. what position i hold now.

When we talk about position in Google, it's in relation to a specific keyword or phrase.

The only way to find your position is to search for the keyword/phrase you want to see and look through the results.

You can make it a bit easier on yourself by setting your search preferences to '100' and using the search function in your browser to look for your domain name.

Keep in mind that the results returned for 100 results per page are ordered differently than the default ten page, but it gives you a good starting point.

i do not know how to change the 100 that you were saying.

:) You need to delete your keyword from that post - we tend to talk in terms of 'widgets' here to prevent any appearances of self-promotion and to keep our businesses private from lurkers.

Just go to Google, enter your search term and click on 'advanced search' to the right of the search box.

At the top of the advanced search page you can change the number of results per page that Google returns.

No problem.

Look to the left of the post where your username is. There's a button there called 'owner edit'. Click that and you can edit any of your posts.

deejay thanks for your help. i did change it to 100
and i entered my domain name. i looked one at a time up to 300 and did not see my domain name.

deejay if you are still there.

the problem with my site is

"keyword relevancy to page content is terrible"

what software do you reccomend for me to buy and write my content and test etc....

can you respon.

Usually the best software in this context is human - you.
If your page content is all about gardens for example and includes such things as types of flowers and their growing conditions. Your keywords could be something like horticulture,soil, pests,plant disease,dry soil,wet soil,roses,delphiniums,daisies...
and so on.

The keywords you use should describe the contents of your pages. Think of keywords as a back of the book type of index to the page.

It may be easier to use the following link when looking for your results.
