then how do we get the data? Sites are often dependent on Google rankings for profitiability, but we should just cross our fingers and hope we do well rather than seeing where we do well so we can make informed business decisions?
Relying on Google's results for profitability probably isn't an informed business decision. True - it comes in very handy, but only at the whim of the algorithm, which will change whether you like it or not over time.
But - given that we all take the Google gravy train from time to time, tracking Google traffic (or better, Sales that convert from Google searcjes), rather than Google rankings is a better plan.
