Google's past searches help driving me crazy!

    Google often shows you a site you visit often higher in the rankings just for you for key words. It's part of their overall system of personalizing searches for everyone.

    The problem with that is you can't see what your real ranking is for keywords that most people would see.

    I just searched for "mens leather bomber jacket" because of an article I made in my leather site. It shows that article as #1 and 2!!

    But I know that is not right and it's around the 3 or 4th page. If it was I'd be swamped with hits right now.

    Is there any good way around this to see what your generic ranking is for key words? This is driving me crazy. hmm

    It's sounding like you need the services of Scroogle.org.

    There are two things that might help:

    1. This site scans eight major search engines for your site or page for any keyword you select:

    2. Do you have google chrome? Click the spanner and click 'go incognito'. This doesn't save any history OR cookies, so you can search with no background history.

    Thanks everyone. I thought scroogle was gone; nice to see it's still around. Checking from that I seem to be at #24, not too bad.

    I'll check out those other places too, thanks! smile

      Me too. I remember reading about how some changes to Google made it so Scroogle stopped working, so it is neat to see them around.
