What is Keyword Tracker for?

    I am not a SEO person. I don't understand why you need to keep track of your rankings on google in those keywords, as you can not do anything about it anyway. Google has its own algrithms.

    For example, if you are ranked #49 of keyword iPod this week and #30 last week, what can do you about it? Just tracking? like watching a sport game?

    That is a very interesting question. And I agree that a lot of people spend a lot of non productive time obsessing about their ranking and checking it out, in some cases several times per day.

    However, if you are actively working on improving a page's ranking -- and yes you can in theory do something about it -- then this is a very useful tool for checking the ranking of the site for the several keywords you may be working on in your linking and SEO efforts.

    It's basically one of those things that if you have to ask, it's probably of no use to you. Originally I made it one morning because I wanted a way to keep track of my general direction (up or down) on my keywords. Figured others might want to use it, so I let them. Although I was hoping for maybe 1,000 users after a year. In reality, it's been 1 year and slightly under 15,000 registered users.

    ok, then can you tell me how you can rank yourself high, using SEO efforts, using generic keywords.

    i have seen the rat/cat game going on for SEO and anything 1 month out of date is useless.

    my main problem is how to make myself a high PR site, as i am very good at generating BS keywords, as long as google think i am high, i can be ranked high. so far, i spent zero time on SEO.

    can you share some secrets on how you made your site PR7? why I got so many hits every day for 1 year and only PR3? i even spammed my site on those FFA link pages, and still not results. it seems to me no matter what backlinks i got, my PR does not go up. somebody else can get a PR6 within 6 months from start.

    You know, the more I read this QLL's questions, the more I wonder why Shawn does not just ban him/her. Who knows what kind of trouble this person could be up to. I don't trust him or her, the questions are too close to the edge. Instead of "these are the rules I must abide by" it is always "how far can I push these rules so they benefit me".

    The tool is self explanatory. A smart person like yourself qll, should be able to figure it out. If you are wondering why we use it. Well, I use it because when I designed my site, there were 10 terms I wanted to rank #1 for. This tool allows me to see the fruits of my labour in Google. I go elsewhere for the rest of my fruit, but this by far is the best one.

    Personally I think Shaun should ban anyone who over analyse's PR, Adsense CTR's and IBL's... :p

    He should also ban himself for not setting the font sizes on this forum with em's and for adding that code restrict on the keyword suggestion tool :p

    Ask Google! There is no answer to that question. Google has been in a wierd state of flux for several months now and nobody really understands why.

    Read the McDar thread and the recent thread "Is Google Broken", on this forum just to get some idea of how bizarre thing have been with Google lately. In the interim we all strive to get Google results because they still have the lion's share of the searches.

    is there still free speech in USA? finding and discovering have nothing to do with committing a crime. it is the same as finding a loophope in windows will only prevent hackers. you really should learn how to accept. one said: "absolute security leads to insecurity" if you pretect yourself too much too well, you will kill yourself. example: if you hire 1000 body guards to pretect you. somebody will think to kidnap you.

    back to the topic. i don't have an account on webmasterworld, where most people discuss cutting edge technologies about adsense. people do make $2M-$4M a year from adsense, with high CTR like 10%. isn't the idea is to learn from how others did it?

    if i am a cheater, i will not even discuess those things. pushing the line means i don't want to cross it. if i am already over the line, i would hide myself.

    If the last sentence of my post doesn't suggest that it wasn't meant to be taken seriously I don't know what will.

    A 9000 drop could in fact just be a few dozen depending on your settings. if you track up to #100 and you drop from 90 to 105 then it will show you a 9010 drop.

    obsessive checking is not going to improve your situtuation, but you can better spend your time trying to improve your page ranking.
