    Google Webmaster Tools??? Search Queries
    How come my site does not come up for any of the search queries that it lists me for in webmaster tools. A couple of the search queries I have average positions are 2.0 and 5.0, but when I search in Google, they are nowhere to be found. I went through 10 pages and still did not see anything of mine. Am I missing something here? Please Help.

    Have you tried looking in Google Images or other areas of G? I've noticed the same thing before and after digging around G, found the site elsewhere.

    Good call!!! It was in images, I spent the last 2 days looking for it....Guess I should have came here 2 days ago. Thanks, hard telling how many more days it would have taken me to figure it out, if I did find it at all...lol....Thanks again.

    Good question - could it be due to personalized search? I'm not sure really.

    I may have just over looked that one because I found the rest. I will continue looking. How come it does not seem to be too difficult to rank a picture quickly? And since my pic is ranking, that must mean I'm doing something right, right? So do I continue to do what I have been doing and eventually my site will show up and rank in the actual Google search results? I mean it is the same process to rank in Google search as it is to rank in images correct?

    Not a lot of sites put effort into ranking on images so it's usually much easier to show up there. It really is an underrated way of getting traffic but most of that traffic won't convert into a sale which is why people don't put in the effort.

    Even though you rank well on images it doesn't mean you'll eventually rank well in regular search on the same term. It varies with the keyword so you never know though.
