    Hi guys I was wondering how do I found how my Hubs are ranking on Google. Is it by  the Hub title or the tags that we select when creating our Hubs. Silly question but was just wondering where I rank. Thanks again for all help and have a great day. Enjoy the great weather. It's beautiful here in Philadelphia.

      Try this http://www.prchecker.info/  this will tell you your page rank.. a Google search for keywords will show you where each article stands in terms of those keywords.. I hope the experts will pop in and give you more tips... Enjoy your day!

        I tried the link you said but it says I have a 0 ranking. I guess cause I only have 14 hubs. Also I copied and pasted the main title of my main page and then did the same with my Hubs and got to the same result. I guess that means I'm not doing well. Thanks sofs.

          LOL, William, relax, it took me a year to be ranked by Google... since then many of my hubs have ranked well...it takes time to age and  to be ranked.. Relax, keep writing, have fun  .. and you shall do very well. smile

            Ok you think my writing is good enough to be ranked eventually or am I making mistakes you can see. Just asking sorry.

          Page rank 0 is still better than 'NA'.  Like sofs said it just takes time.    My first 6 months here were pretty slow.

        Page Rank doesn't tell you where your Hubs are appearing in Google search.  It's an indicator of reputation, sort of. Page Rank only goes from N/A to 10 and I don't think I've ever come across a website that's managed to get higher than 6. 

        Unfortunately, searching Google for your keywords won't give you an accurate idea of how your Hub is ranking in search results either.  Google personalizes and geo-targets your results, so what you see is not what someone else sees.  There used to be a site called Scroogle which you could use to see results without personalization, but it's gone out of business. 

        There are rank trackers out there, but they all cost money.

          I certainly have not found a "free" method.  I was surely hoping for a solution here, lol.

          There are heaps of free ones! The ones I've used seem fairly accurate too (although don't always work depends on the search engine.) Here is an example:

          However I have used a couple of others in the past (but couldn't find my links to them lol!)

            Good to know. There was a big kerfuffle recently because Google said it was going to start charging a lot of money for its API, which meant Market Samurai (and some others) said they'd have to stop offering rank checkers free. 

            It's interesting that some free tools are still working, I found this article about it which is interesting:

              I must admit I don't really keyword research or track my rankings anymore. I realised I loved writing, plus my time DOING keyword research gave me an idea of what people type into Google. So now I mostly write on topics I enjoy, although on my own sites they're related to a keyword friendly topic.

                Neither do I, really.  But I drop in on Lissie's blog regularly and I noticed it came up there.

      It's not really a silly question. Are you signed up to use Google's Webmaster Tools?  I think it's a valuable place to see how our hubs are performing. Under  search queries you can see the average position of your site/page for specific queries for different periods of time, default is 30 days. It also indicates if your site/page is improving over the previous 30 day period.

      An excerpt from the search query info page says; To calculate average position, we take into account the ranking of your site for a particular query (for example, if a query returns your site as the #1 and #2 result, then the average position would be 1.5).
