Hi guys,

This may come across as a stupid question, but this morning I checked one of my keywords in google and it showed I am on the first page of google.(I almost got an hart attack!)

When I checked the same keyword on my phone it showed I'm on page 3. Do any of you know why this can be?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, I can help you with that. Google's job as a search engine is to provide you with what it believes are the most relevant search results for you. Google collects lots of data about you and when you search for anything online, it provides you with what it deems to be the most relevant content for you as an individual. In other words, Google is personalizing your search results.

Since you are the creator of your website and you have no doubt spent quite a bit of time working on the page in question, Google sees this page as being very relevant to you. That's why you see it displayed on page 1. Searching on Google in the normal way isn't an accurate way to see your search results.

The best way to check your page rank is by using an incognito or private window in your browser. Google automatically lists pages you've previously visited if you don't use incognito.
