When people start learning that they can start to move their sites to the top of Google for certain keywords that are relevant to their business, they get really excited and start to check their rankings. As they start to build more links to their sites, they love to see their rankings rise. check my google rank There are a few tips that I can share with you in order to help you to maximize your experience when checking where you rank.
Tip 1 – Don’t just use Google. There are tons of options available for you to check your rankings. One of them is to go to the source, and that is Google. Google has recently been implementing stuff into their search engine that will actually serve you personalized results based on your surfing habits and other sites you have clicked on before in the Google search engine. Since you probably have visited your site many times, it may show your site ranking higher for YOU, while it may not be that high for any other computer. There are many other tools that you can use, and you can look in the resource box below in order to find a fantastic tool.
Tip 2 – Don’t check every day. If you are checking where you rank every day, it is pretty much a waste of time, especially if you have a lot of sites. Most likely, your sites won’t move too much in a short period of time, so it is just wasting your time that could be spent improving your ranking, instead you are just wasting time checking your rankings which probably won’t change. I recommend checking bi-weekly, so that you can see gains and losses easier, and your gains will probably be better over that 2 week period. If you have to check more, I suggest no more than once per week. Pick a day and make that the day that you always check your Google ranking.
Tip 3 – Don’t freak out if your site drops in rankings. One of the reasons I suggest not checking so often is because people get emotionally tied to their results in the search engines, and they tend to freak out, over-analyze, and then react if their site goes down in the rankings. Sites go up and down in the rankings all of the time in Google, that is part of the natural process. It doesn’t necessarily mean you did something wrong. Instead of worrying about what may have went wrong, just understand it’s part of the natural process and continue to build links to your sites.
