Search Engine Rankings
Search Engine Rankings offer FREE, instant, online reports of webpage rankings in the top 3 search engines: Google (top 10), Bing (top 10) and Yahoo! (top 50). If you want more comprehensive reports, try SEO PowerSuite.
How to use:
- Enter a website domain into the 'Domain' box below.
- Enter a search term into the 'Search Term' box below.
- Google, Bing and Yahoo! are selected by default. Uncheck any you don't want.
- Click the "Check search engine rankings" button.
- The search engine ranking report will open in a new browser tab/window. If nothing happens, try pausing any software that may be blocking the popup. Alternatively, try a different web browser.
June 4, 2014: We are aware that Google sometimes serves up an error in the results. After extensive tests, our conclusion is that Google is probably serving a CAPTCHA when the tool queries Google too often. If this happens to you, please try again later. Thanks to Brad Vorhees for the heads up.
- Search Engine Rankings not working properly? If the results aren't similar to those you see when you search the search engines directly, then read the possible reasons below. If you're still convinced that one or more of the results are broken, please get in touch. I always try to get bugs fixed ASAP.
- Mar. 30, 2014: Thanks to Skip Daley for emailing me about the Bing and Yahoo! bug. We're looking into it.
- Jun. 5, 2012: We can no longer access AOL's search results. Hence, we've removed AOL from the report.
- May 30, 2012: We've fixed the issue with Internet Explorer.
- Mar. 12, 2012: The search engine ranking tool now returns the top 10 rankings for Google, top 20 in AOL, top 30 in Bing, and top 100 in Yahoo.
- Feb. 6, 2012: The search engine ranking tool now returns the top 30 rankings in Bing. Please note that Bing returns highly personalized results: the rankings returned by Search Engine Rankings and when you search Bing.com are almost certainly going to be different. So only use Search Engine Rankings as a rough guide.
- Feb. 3, 2012: The search engine ranking tool now returns the top 30 rankings in Google, top 10 in Bing, and top 100 in Yahoo. Thanks to Marcia Robbins and Randy Susick for the heads up.
- Jan. 16, 2012: All search engines are returning results now. Thanks for the heads up, Don Sheppard and Chris Bick.
- Jan. 11, 2012: We have fixed the Google results. Thanks for the heads up, Sean Wreggelsworth.
- Jul. 10, 2011: We have fixed the issue that corrupted the Google results. Thank you to Paul and Andrea for bringing this to my attention.
- Mar. 25, 2011: The search engine ranking tool searches the top 100 results in Google and Yahoo, but only the top 10 in Bing because Bing limits results to 10 per page.
- Nov. 11, 2010: We have removed AltaVista, AllTheWeb, Yahoo! Directory and Dmoz because they are not relevant nowadays and require too much work to maintain.
- Search Engine Rankings is also available at www.Search-Engine-Ranking.us.
- Once you click the "Check search engine rankings" button, please be patient as it may take up to 10 seconds to process your search. If nothing happens after 30 seconds, close the popup window and try again.
- If all you see is a blank window, make sure you entered a URL and search term.
- Cookies must be accepted by your web browser for the software to work properly.
- Entering "www.yoursite.com" and "yoursite.com" may produce different results.
- You don't have to enter the full webpage URL into the search form. Simply enter the website domain (homepage). For example, http://www.yoursite.com. Search Engine Rankings will return the first ranking for the website that matches any URL in the search engine results.
- Search Engine Rankings remembers the last 20 searches. Hence, you can compare your search engine rankings to your competitors'.
- Search Engine Rankings results may vary due to factors beyond our control. These include time of day, where you are located, indexing runs, traffic load, load balancing measures, server timeout, ongoing ranking jobs, etc.
- Search engines take into account your location in ranking results. If you search for a local business, the chances are it will rank higher for you than for users searching from outside of the area. This would explain why results you see in a search engine may not correspond with those found by Search Engine Rankings.
- Search engines also take into account your previous searches and clicks. Websites may show up higher when you search at a search engine compared to the results returned by Search Engine Rankings. Hence, use Search Engine Rankings results as a guide only.
- Ocassionally, people inform me that Search Engine Rankings is broken when in fact it isn't. The reason for the confusion is because Search Engine Rankings is located in the United States. It will return results as though you're searching from within the U.S. If you use Google, Bing or Yahoo! to do a search from outside of the U.S., those results are localized rankings. They may not match those retrieved by this search engine ranking tool.
- A big thank you to The Free Site!
