Article #6 on page 1 of Bing! Woo Hoo!

Last Update: July 31, 2018

I don't understand why I can't find it on Google, but on Bing, one of my articles is #6 on page 1. It's a beginning, but why can't I get on Google? Hmm.... I'm happy with where I am on Bing, but more people use Google. I put in Veterans suffering ptsd instead of my link and that's how I came up with that number on Bing. I hope I did it right. It didn't even come up with a primary article..... maybe I'll make a sale!

Congratulations Rae! I have a question, so you were able to find your ranking based on your own search result? This is something that would not show up on Website Manage, this is where we saw an indication of our site having indexed when it first did. so just wondering if we want to know how we rank we have to find it out ourselves?

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, I've been detained. In the far upper right of your computer screen there are three small dots, usually in a horizontal line. If you click on those dots, you will have the option to open the page incognito and that allows you to see your results through someone else's eyes. Does that help?

Do i still open it via Site Manager or just directly do a search, click on it and the view it incognito?

When I went incognito, first I put in the topic (usually the best way) I also typed the exact key words and of course it took me right to it, but that isn't really as accurate. So I suggest the first way. Say your key words are "The best ways to go fishing for salmon." If you type in "fishing for salmon", you're more likely to get an accurate count of where you are. Anyone else want to weigh in?

wonderful result there. It is harder to rank on Google because as you say more people use it and more people are competing for a ranking. Don't despair just carry on and write more articles and content and you will be ranked eventually

Yay!!!!! Good for you Rae! That is awesome. You are really moving with your new site! Congratulations! I have had some posts where one is on page 2 of search results on one search engine and not on the first 10 pages on another. It is very hard to guess how it will go so just don't worry about it and enjoy the success!

Not all search engines are the same, nor will their search results be the same. It is a GREAT sign that you are ranking in Bing, it typically is harder initially to get search penetration in Bing, so this is a very good sign.

Keep up the great work and through time and as you gain authority with your website, you are going to start to see more and more rnkings in Google .

Thank you Kyle,
I thought I had done something wrong since I am not ranking in Google. But if Bing is harder, that suits me just fine! Thanks for the information and kudos.
