    Now I am even more confused about this ranking thing - I googled "website" and it came up 7th, then googled it again and it never came up! I am also continuously trying to get my site up there with key words, every person you talk to they "guarantee" ranking up there at the top ! So how the heck does ranking work ?

    Thanks adrianh

    Kevinb, try using Google Chrome in incognito mode. The results should be pretty consistent then.

    Someone just pointed out my typo. It's not #1, it's #3. The forum heading was correct, the post itself was wrong :P Whoops!

    Frankly the SERP I got is disturbing.

    Just1 is no.3, sure enough and well played on that one, Norri. But check out the next few!

    I picked that up to... I would go so far as to say a large majority of the people who offer websites and web design aren't optimising for the word "website" - I know we certainly aren't. It's too broad for my liking. But hey, if it converts for Norri, who am I to argue.

    What is a SERP and why is it disturbing?

    SERP = Search Engine Results Page

    It's disturbing because all the listings under Norri's site are totally irrelevant, if you assume that people searching for "website" are in fact looking for something along the lines of what Norri offers. The listings below just1.co.za include Protea Hotels & Ushaka Marine World and Die Antwoord (wow ) - which to me shows that the keyword isn't as competitive as what some might think. Those sites are probably just ranking there because they've mentioned the word "website" a couple times on a page time and they are already established websites with a decent page rank/authority in Google's eyes.

    I'm pretty sure none of them has built an SEO campaign around the keyword "website"
