I'm trying to figure out where my article is on page one? If I am signed into google, it automatically biases the results to me, so that my article appears to be higher than it is.
Also, how can I check to see backlinks of one particular article?
The easiest way is to log out. After that, use a different browser. Generally, I keep three browsers running to check compatibility anyway.
There are several "preview" websites that will help. Just do a search for them.
On backlinks, put "Backlink Checker" in Google. I will run four or five of those and then compare results.
Hi Tess, if you tell me what article it is I could check for you.
I found your article on page one number 8 in the list, nice work Tess.
Not a perfect solution because Google can still read your IP address.
Unfortunately there isn't one, because everyone's results are affected by their search history. The bottom line, though, is that there's no point worrying about it. What matters is whether your article is getting traffic.
StartPage is Google without the tracking. It is what I use to do this.
If you have the latest version of Google Chrome click the three little dots at the top right of the screen. Incognito window is under new tab and new window. Also, if you have a Chrome Window open already if you press CTRL + Shift + N at the same time this is a keyboard shortcut for opening new incognito tabs.
Thanks. Got it. So is that where the piece is ranked. That would put my article on page one - 5 or 6 (forgotten already). Thanks.
A good question. I also used the incognito window just now to search one of my articles and it was 6th on the first page.
Thanks, Tess and EricFarmer.
Doesn't give me the position on the first page. I need to use keywords to see what will come up. Using the URL defeats the point. Also, one can use a different browser by the command 'site:'
