How often do you check your SERP position in google? Any particular website you use?
I never check. I just focus on writing and linking rather than wasting time checking every day.
I manually check my SERP's every few days or when I notice any major changes in traffic. I manually search directly on Google. If its not on the first 3 pages then it doesn't matter at all and I stop looking. Really all I care about are page one rankings though.
It is worth checking now and again. Its worth looking at competitors too. You learn a lot about how Google works. The SEO Quake plug in for Firefox speeds that process up.
When were were flat broke all last summer, I checked it daily (or close to that). Now that we're not quite so desperate, I seldom check it at all.
On my blogs, everyday, until it gets to page one for my target keyword phrase.
Then I stop building basic anchor backlinks and run some RSS submissions.
maybe once a week, I was searching a name and then I came across my hub which is in the front page of google, I smiled and say WOW hahaha!
