In Google, can you tell ALL the keywords that point to my site?

Discussion in 'Google' started by smeilach, Feb 28, 2005.

    Is there a way in Google to tell me all the keywords that point to my site from the Google listings? If I knew which keywords Google was indexed on that point to my site, then I could figure out in what page number they are listed there and I can work on improving that keyword ranking.

    Thanks

    You cant do that, as it doesnt exist Google and all the search engines index your entire page text. Then people search for a phrase, and the search enignes aaply their algorithm to the pages in the database to pull out the most suitable for that phrase.

    Keyword research is the cornerstone of good SEO/SEM, get it wrong and your chasing a ghost. What you need to do is to go and do the search keyword research, compare it to your pages, and apply yourself to promoting it.

    Of course! Just check your server stats (using for example webalizer), or put up one of those free counters. I use mvtracker.com and it shows me the specific keyword and what engine was used to bring a visitor to my site.

    You can find out which key phrases people are finding your site with by analysing your logfiles. I think there is some magic in Digitalpoint's tools that can tell you where you rank for those phrases if you can't be bothered to manually check.

    Sheesh - Fryman can write posts 4 minutes faster than I can. Gotta speed up.

    I think the topic starter means all anchor text aiming to their site that's indexed in Google. Sort of AllInAnchor but for all KWs. Some of you seem to think he/she means the KW's that when used in a search show their site in the SERPs.

    Perhaps smeilach could elaborate a bit since it's not clear.

    What I meant was for a way to see what keywords/sentences from Google would point to my site. For example, I added a topic and a page titled "How To Fight Child Pornography" If I search for that exact same title in Google, I can see that I'm at the top of page 3. The point is that I knew to look for this exact title in Google since I've added it to my website. But what about other keywords/sentences that are in my site (and there are lots!) that would get rated in the first, second or third page of Google? If I knew that information, I can do something about those keywords to get a higher ranking.

    I know I can look at my logs, which I do, but those logs don't list everything, or perhaps someone hasn't come to my site with a keyword mentioned above because it was way down on page, for example, 3 or 4.

    Hope this clears up my original question.

    (If this is my 10th post, now I can post url's finally!!!!)

    No, there isn't a reverse lookup as such.
