    OT: find my site in search engine results

      hi everyone. i was just wondering if anybody knows how to find where a given website ranks in search results in Google, for example. in other words, a key phrase for my website returns about 2million results in Google, and i know my site will be nowhere near the top (but i still want to know where it is!). is there a way to find my site without clicking through each page and searching for the site manually?

      thanks!

          www.GoogleRankings.com (note you must have a google api key to run google
          rankings and they stopped issuing them in 2006) but this will display MSN
          and Yahoo rankings.

            I don't know how you would do that, but if you aren't on the first
            couple of SERP, it won't matter anyway.

                I have API keys and could do the Google check for you. Contact me by
                email if necessary. Send URL(s) and keyword(s) to check for.

                      thanks for help, everyone!

                      Micha, i may take you up on your offer. but i was able to find out that the site isn't in the search results at all at this point. like i said, i just started it and all there is right now is an index page with contact info. so once i actually get the site put together and have a little bit of SEO in place, i may just have you do that for me.

                      thanks again, guys!
