When we create a website of any kind, one of the things we hope to achieve is a high ranking on a search engine. Whilst sometimes we find that some sites don't always rank too well in the search engines, we can often be pleasantly surprised when they do.

Of all the websites you have ranked in a search engine, what has been your highest ranked?

My local tile business. If you live in my area and search for "tile guy near me" or "tile contractor in [name a northeast ohio town]" then I show up at the top ;)

If you search for "carnivore forum" I also show up at the top...
https://www.bing.com/search?q=carnivore+forum
And if you search for my particular denominations forum, we show up within the first 5 search results.
 
Generic terms... not high.
Niche specific search terms, not bad.
kubuntu kstars install
fedora kstars install
linux mate kstars install
apertura 72mm eaf install
morefine m10 review


and many more similar niche terms, at the top or within the top 5.
Remember... when checking you need to use a clean browser, or something like TOR browser that doesn't store any cookies or tracking data. A regular browser (even Chrome incognito) you use to go to a site or do searches from can skew the results. You need a clean system that has no previous tracking in it. All the above were using TOR browser and Duck Duck Go. Using TOR when I went to Google it warned me about storing cookies and I told it no.
I think some may be surprised at where their search results turn out to be when they do this.

Now I'm ranked #2, but I notice it changes consistently. A few times I noticed I was ranked #1.
Not to be a betty downer, but I checked for jcink codes in Google using TOR browser with clear cache/cookies and it wasn't listed within the first 60.
Checked at duck duck go with Tor with clear cache the term was at #10 if the domain is the jcoderesources.com one.
That's one of the reasons for best results I recommended a browser that clears cookies/cache upon each exit. If you are checking with the same browser you visit your site in, your results will usually be much higher than they are for someone checking cold turkey.

Of course, your best data points will be from Google Search console.

I figured it was too good to be true considering my search engine rankings never seemed all that good. Google tricked me. I clear a lot of data upon browser exit, but not all of it. Thanks for the Google teaching.

Are you using google’s search console?
https://search.google.com/search-console
It used to be called google webmaster tools, but if you install the script, it’ll tell you all the keywords that you’re ranking for and the positions.
 
I used to hit the first page (4 or 5) with one of my popular projects. There was so much competition and still, this was possible.

Later SEO became too expensive. I target organic traffic than SERP ranking. Mainly because I compete with giants.
