If you are position 5000 in google for a particular key phrase is there any clever way to find that out without a search through 500 pages looking for the relevant page?

[edit reason] No sigs or URLs, please. Thank you! [/edit]
Forget about #5000. If you're not in the first couple hundred results, then you shouldn't even waste any more time checking your ranking. Instead, you should put some more time into building up your content and PR.
If anyone knows how to get it to return visible urls along with the titles, that for me would make it more useful yet.
cdxp - Welcome to the boards. I suggest you remove the link from your signature before the mods do. Read the Terms of Service.
The reason for the question was like everyone else i'm sure i always get clients who want to be number one for a key phrase for which there are 3M entries in google and it is good to be able to show the dire position we are starting from. Not being in the top 1000 is enough data.
re the sig i think its already gone - or i cant find it anymore in options so i consider myself soundly slapped. Probably not reading the TOS is enough reason to be in breach of TOS. :-)
re - the 5000 i made a high number to avoid comments about "dont be so lazy go look"
To those who sent me the private emails about Google API's also thanks.
Interestingly though - doesn't seem to return the same results as normal search...
I knew this question was going to come up. The clustering on 100 results is different from the clustering on 10. Someone else with more time can explain this in more detail. I tried briefly to get more than 100 results on a page, but 100 seems to be the max.
Otherwise, I think the results are regular www results. I would guess you could adapt the url to work with any data center, but I haven't tried it.
There is a website i can sticky to you that uses google api . you can use this 1000 times a day google allows it.
Ive been using this for about the last 3 months and is right on the money everytime. It also lets you choose as many keywords that you are tracking . Right now myself im tracking 26 keywords using this site . There is no penalty
for this as long as you use google's api .all you have to do is email google and get your api no. and plug it in.
Let me know.
Keep hitting refresh and you will see their ad eventualy in the top right.
In the interest of keeping Brett's server load down, it might be a better idea to search for them on Google.
hooloovoo22 - GoogleRankings.com looks great, and their About page says they're operating with Google's blessing. Thanks.
Much easier to use the API to get the results than to try it by hand with Advanced Search.
