    When I check GoogleRankings *.com for two search phrases with my domain I get the following results:

    Keyword: arizona real estate directories URL Pattern: resalebroker.com
    Position 183. Arizona Real Estate Agents - 10/16/2004
    Full url: http:// www *calgaryrealestate-goodrealtor.com/directory/usa-states-arizona *htm

    Keyword: arizona real estate resources URL Pattern: resalebroker.com
    Position 159. Arizona Real Estate Agents - 10/16/2004
    Full url: http:// www *calgaryrealestate-goodrealtor.com/directory/usa-states-arizona *htm
    SEMrush
    Any idea on why this other site is showing up under a search for my domain? :confused:

    It is only a guess but I think it is the age of the link and the website.

    What's weird is that I was checking "MY" site and Google Rankings showed someone else's page. :confused:

    Try it with a / at the end of your domain name. I had this happen with the mcdar tool and was told it was because my domain name was in the url or the snippet (cant remember which). anyway, adding the / solved the problem. might work with googlerankings too, not sure.

    The help page says that the script actually looks up the occurrance of your domain name, no matter what it is ( in the url, in the page title, as content... )

    This means that if someone has a link to you or mentions you on a page, googlerankings will get that result. I found it annoying first until I figured out that this can be used for so many things. Basically it's a logical AND for the two phrases... your domain and the keyword.

    If you want to you can always be specific enough to get the results only where your domain is the URL ( use URL syntax )... and at the same time, you can toy around with crossreferences...

    using two keywords... one in the keyword bracket...
    the other in the domain :)
