...and in details:

1.: What's the use of all this?

1.1.: The idea behind Googlerankings.com

Googlerankings was just a random idea at start. We wondered how the sites we develop would rank for certain keywords in the search engine, Google™ and looked for a proper tool to monitor their positions. However we were soon to find that there aren't many such online applications, and the few that are available are either not free or do not have all the features that we need. Thus we developed our own little tool to see whether our sites are in the top ranks, something that is fast and simple enough to be used anytime, anywhere. Thus Googlerankings.com was born.

1.2.: Checking your place on the list of sites

Whenever you enter a keyword or phrase to search Google™ , it will display an endless list of sites that match your request. In case you are the average user, looking for information, this feature is good enough as it is. But if you are actually just curious if your site has made it to the top ranks on this list, you would need to have a sharp eye and endless patience. For in order to know where your site is within these ranks, you may need to look through several hundres records. This isn't too convenient. And while there are a few tools to help you out in looking for your domain on the list, neither of them is easy to use and free at the same time, except Googlerankings.com. Our tool will look up your position within Google™ for any given search.

1.3.: Know your strengths and weaknesses

What good it does if you know how your site ranks for a keyword? If you did not make it to the top 10, 100, or even 300... what point is there to know where you are listed anyway? Simple. If you know the keywords you'd like to be positioned in the top for, you will know whether your site has been optimised good enough. You will be able to monitor your progress, correct the mistakes, and eventually walk upwards the ladder. Once you know what keywords you are strong in, and what keywords need to be improved, you are halfway there. If you aren't willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars on promotion, you are likely to love this toy.

1.4.: Helps to plan your marketing strategy

If you do not have an already set preference on what keywords to rank good in, you may check as many as you like, and see if there are any you are 'accidentally' already good in. Laying down the foundations of a marketing campaign may start at choosing the right words for your advertisements, and if you already know which words will bring up your site in Google™, you'll know what phrases to use.

1.5.: SEO optimisation for free?

Yes. In a way. Although this application will not make your site more popular, it's a great feature to see where you are at... and in case you become a regular... to see where you are heading.

1.6.: Toy versus tool

Personally, it was curiosity that made us build Googlerankings.com. And while it's a useful tool to monitor our sites... it's also a quite entertaining toy to tinker with. See which is the first german site for the word "automobile", see if there are any competitors for your hobby pages' keywords of "modeling" and "model painting", whether msn.com makes it to the top 10 of most popular "search engines" ...The possibilities are endless.

2.: How to use the site

2.1.: Know what you are looking for

First of all, you have to know what you want to look up. If used correctly, the site will provide the following information:

If you are curious whether your site is within the top sites in Google™'s list when someone is to enter the keyword "web design", all you need to do is enter your domain name, and the phrase "web design" into the proper fields. Googlerankings.com will then look up your position in Google™, and return with your rank, which will be a number between 1. and 1000.

In case you did not make it to the top 1000, it will report that your site is not within the ranks it's allowed to monitor. You may limit your search to only look for the site within the top 100, 200, 300 ... 500...800 and so on, which will speed up the process, and exclude the ranks you consider to be too far from the leading few.

Many things depend on how you enter the domain name ( URL ) of the site, and which keywords you specify, but since this service is for free, you may experiment with it as much as you like.

2.2.: Proper syntax is essential

Be sure to check the syntax of whatever you enter. Keywords may contain just about any words or phrases you would enter in Google™, you may separate them with spaces, or commas, it doesn't matter. But if you mistype the keywords, and enter something else than you were originally looking for, the results will probably disappoint you.

The Domain name / URL field is a bit more strict. You may not enter special characters, neither spaces, for they aren't supposed to be in a domain name anyway.

2.3.: Flexible search Vs. restricted search

If you enter the domain name in the possible shortest way, for example wickedfairy.net , our program will look for any domains that match this phrase, and may bring back any of the following results: www.wickedfairy.net , artwork.wickedfairy.net , http://wickedfairy.net/gallery/ ... and so on.

If you enter a domain name defining a more exact URL, likewise info.wickedfairy.net ... Googlerankings will only show results that include this phrase, thus all previous examples would be ignored. This search will only look for pages on the domain info.wickedfairy.net .

Let's say you are curious where a site with the domain name "winery" would be on the list Google™ displays when someone does a search on the word "wine". You may intentionally exclude the .com extension, maybe you aren't sure or aren't interested in whether the domain is .com, .org or anything else, you only want to display the first result which has the phrase "winery" in its domain. You simply needn't enter the full domain.

This may lead to tricky situations though, where you will see, Googlerankings brings up sites which do not have the domain name you entered. To stay with the previous example, if you are looking for the first site that has "winery" in its domain name, on the list of sites that come up for the keywords "wine"... Googlerankings may bring up sites that include "winery" in their URL, maybe as sub-domains, maybe as HTML pages, but not necessarilly as domains. Thus www.winery.org, www.california-tourism.com/winery or winery.carmel-valley.com , maybe even www.anythingelse.com are all possible results. Let's stop right here. How is the last result possible? Only one way: if the title of the site ( the one you would see on the top of your browser ) has the word "winery" in it. If the index page of www.anythingelse.com has the following title: "Winery, brewery, pub, restaurant, and anything else" it may come up as a result to your search.

So watch what you enter into the domain field. Less is flexible, more is certain.

3.: The results

3.1.: See where your site is on the list

When Googlerankings.com brings up the result of the search, it will display the title of the site it found, and to its left, a number between 1 and 1000. This is your position on the list of sites for a given keyword.

3.2.: Verify your spelling

Above the results you may check the spelling of both the domain and the keywords you entered.

3.3.: See the exact URL we found for you

Below the title of the page you will see the exact URL of the site we found with the provided domain name. For example if you were looking for the domain perfectglasses.com the result may include scuh URLs as http://www.perfectglasses.com/store/products.html

3.4.: Check Google™ to verify the results

This feature lets you to check the actual list of sites that are displayed on Google™ for the keyword you provided. See if our tool made a mistake. Don't forget that our system is searching in the complete list of sites, including pages that may be hidden from you, because of your preferences in the Google™ Search Engine. In order to lift these restrictions, go to http://www.google.com/preferences .

4.: Troubleshooting

4.1.: What went wrong?

In case Googlerankings returns with the message: "Sorry, Your site was not within the ranks in Google™'s results." - it is probably so. You may want to check your spelling, both for the domain name, and for the keywords.

4.2.: Don't use special characters - Syntax error in the URL

"Sorry, Googlerankings encountered an error. Your domain name included illegal characters. Please try again."

The message says it all. Don't type in any characters that would not be allowed in a domain name. Meaning if you enter anything else than numbers, letters, a dot, a hyphen or a slash, you may get this message. Do not use spaces, and don't try to look for two domain names at once.

4.3.: Still having doubts?

Make sure your site is listed in Google™'s system, by going to their website and enterig your domain name as a quotation, like this: "http://www.mydomain.com". If Google™ does not bring up your website as a result, you are not (yet) in their database, and thus neither are you in the top 1000 on any keyword.

4.4.: Try again

Please :-)
