Just thought it would interesting to see who has the best top 10 result in Google. No need to state your keyword as we are all very honest here :)

I'll start with a very modest...

Position:8
Competing Results: 3,300,000

Any takers to beat that?!

# 7 out of 3,500,000.

Of course I think I should be #1, and can't understand why Google doeesn't think so too.

#38 out of 121,000 :-( - most important keyword... I've been learning a lot from you though and hope I will improve by following your steps....

Hang in there Carly, you will keep getting better, it takes time, patience and lots of research. Study up at WebmasterWorld.

> Unless you are talking things like "a" and "the"

Exactly. It's one of those type of words.

Geeeee... we sure are talented! I wonder where else you could find a bunch of webmasters all in the same place that could claim such stats.

I would suggest that many successful SEO's here fall into the top 10th or even 5th IQ percentile. Reaching the top echelons of any industry predominantly requires superior intelligence, thank god I have some!

In fact as an interesting sideshow, anyone care to post their official IQ i.e. tested, just to obtain a crude gauge on my hypothesis.

I'll start with mine (5 years ago though!) - 152

#4 and #7 out of 6,700,000
#6 and #8 of 6,020,000
#5 out of 4,450,000
#1 and #2 of 1,160,000

(PR 8 site)

I just came out an idea, why don't we include the PR with the number? It will be interesting.

I was 150 back in high school, but after some experimental drug use, 2 marriages, 20+ websites, and 3 kids, its down around 135 to 140. Weird eh.

For my kind of widgets, the key words I maximize for don't bring up such lovely several millions responses as some of yours, but for fun...

kw phrase#1 (highly competitive): position 2 out of 1,460
kw phrase 2: position 1 and 2 out of 55,100
kw phrase 3: position 1 out of 258,000

This is a fun thread, I never really checked before.
#2,3 of 1,710,000
#9 of 1,110,000
#1,2 of 640,000
#1 of 390,000
#1 of 297,000
#1,2,3,5,6 of 270,000
#1,2,3,4,5,7,8 of 214,000

The multiple listings are for several clients in the same industry, all above board. :)
I never spam.

FleaPit--to answer your question...I've never taken an official IQ exam, but on the online one a couple years ago I scored a 147, I think.

#3 out of 5,780,000 --site had inched up to PR7 before the last update, but is now PR6 again...

Unfortunately, the KWP may be reasonably "competitive" (# of sites found by GG), but it is not extremely "popular" (# of searches as reported by Overture) --around 83,000 in April. (This is a site I created just for fun, so I do not care about either statistic, anyway...)

As for the IQ question: that's only meaningful if you state *which* test measured it (or more precisely: if you know the test's standard deviation). The only score that is (or should be) the same on all tests is 100; but 132 on one test (with an SD of 16) can correspond with 140 on another (with SD 20). Therefore, "percentile scores" are often used instead of IQ scores (e.g., 99th percentile or top 1%).

My own best score (on a test I took about 10 years ago) was 174 on a test with SD 16 --i.e., roughly 4.5 SD above the mean, which supposedly corresponds with the 1 in 1,000,000 level... :-)

Of course, all this, plus one dollar, may buy me a cup of coffee in New York.

I personally like to judge by position in Google versus the price of the same position in Overture.

I'm #1 of about 1,840,000, on a term that's $5.00 per click to be #1 in Overture.

Well done Morgan, now multiply that by the amount of referrals with that query and that's part of your net SEO worth - at least thats how I keep myself happy.
