Producing a simple keywords search results report

I want to be able to approach a customer and offer to check their site for how well they are coming up in Google for specific keywords that are in their site.

I've done it before using Google to pull keywords from a site then searching those 80 to 100 keywords but, it was just a lot of copy, paste, search, then count the position, then write position in a word doc. Is there an easier way? I want to show some sort of graph if possible.

Google Notebook is somewhat better but I'd think there has to be a more efficient way. Is there?

Thanks ever so much, and much success to everyone.

Billy

Hey Webstercat, welcome to WebmasterWorld (in case nobody said that yet)!

We don't allow commercial recommendations here, but what people often fail to realize is how easy it is to simply search for what they are looking for. Have you tried, for example, searching on phrases like "web site rank checker" or similar? ;-)

Sorry I didn't understand and didn't even know to use "web site rank checker" as a search term. I had searched before but didn't get any results.

Thanks I will remember this rule, and won't make the same mistake twice.

That was only one phrase that came to mind. You might search on "keywords result report" or "monitor web site rankings" and so on until you find what you are looking for. Different engines sometimes serve up different kinds of results too, so keep that in mind.

That there was time even just a few years ago when searching did not necessarily get you what you want...even if you knew the in's and out's of search. That has changed. The engines are going deeper and getting better all the time, and displaying results in different and more varied ways, all of which makes it easier than ever to find things. People are also giving away more information than ever before, as the very nature of doing business and communicating on the Web rapidly evolves towards giving things away to get things.

These days if I have some problem and I am not even sure how/where to start, I remember to search for it. It is amazing how much you can find now just by searching.

I was entering a new category in which I have no experience not long ago, and wanted to know what companies paid the most for leads, and how much that was. I assumed I'd have to track down somebody who has good experience in the field, and persuade them to share with me some of the inside dirt. Then the bell went off and I started my quest by using one of the search engines. It's like someone was handing me gold! Within minutes I had the answer to every single question on my mind, and turned up a few things to think about that I'd not even considered. Two or three years ago that info might have taken me days or weeks to acquire. ;-)
