How do I find out how many pages of a website ranks on the first page of Google? And for what terms?

I mean, if the website has 100 webpages, I want to know:

  • How many pages rank on first page (shown on first page of Google)
  • Which specific keyword they rank.

There's no comprehensive way to determine exactly what terms will trigger a 1st page result (as this will depend on way too many factors), but you can use various software to check whatever terms you want against the results in Google and get their positions.

Advanced Web Rankings and similar software can do this for you.

It's also important to remember that in this day and age, localisation and personalisation will significantly impact what results are shown for any given query. So you should always take that into consideration.


If you subscribe to Google Webmaster Tools, you can find out the average position of your site pages within Google search results page along with the specified keywords that were used.
