What is the right way to test your position in google indexing?

    How many words do you use to see if your hub is among the top ten or twenty in google search? Are these words or combination of words taken from your hub title? or search is on key words?

    For example, if I use 2-3 words from my titles if generally find the hub in the top 20. For example, the words "Corporate demise" puts my hub at the top of google. The words jobs small companies salaries brings me to tenth position. Is this good? Or is it merely  because search words are taken from my title?

    The words you use may not be key words of search and  key words that fit content can't always be found. For example, to replace the word "Corporate" with "Big companies" seems a miss fit.

    The traffic to my hubs is very average about 30-40 page views on day one sometimes little more. Is this because of the subject or the title does not have the right key words. The hub corproate demise sits on the top of google search but the page views have been quite ordinary, Why?

    Any ealborations would be appreciated (This is enough to get you Ph.D if you can get a model developed).

    You seem to have it backwards. If you want google traffic you need to write about keywords people search for. Obviously they don't search for "corporate demise". Try my latest hub, it might clarify some things for you smile

    Thanks. I have read your article. I have tried both.For example, I used the words big companies and small companies as I found in my limited (not as exhaustive as you do it) key word research though I did not enjoy using these words. Still not much difference.Is it because the sample searching for the topic is small?

    If people dont search for "Corporate demise" why are there so many articles under those words?

    when is it a real top rank in google index?

      There are not many articles of corporate demise.

      Yours is a classic case of the misunderstanding of keywords.

      A broad search on Google for corporate demise gives 2,130,000 results.
      This is the number of pages that have the words corporate and demise somewhere on the pages.

      An exact search for "corporate demise" ie where the two words appear in that order, together on the page gives 3,760 results.
      And I'd guess that most of these would be articles where the keyword was mentioned, and would not be specifically about corporate demise.

      Have a look at my report at http://theinternetbloke.com/Keywords.pdf

      I wrote this for my clients, and it will tell you why you are at the top of gooogle, but not receiving any visitors.

      The google external keyword tool at https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
      tells me that the keyword "corporate demise" has 73 searches a month globally.

      You would be better to use the terms corporate collapse (2400 searches) or corporate collapses (1000 searches)

      Thank you. I'm glad the keyword guide was useful for you.

      You Why not rewrite and republish  the corporate demise hub using different keywords, and see how it compares with the original.
