Did you know that when you search your own product or company with the hopes of seeing where you appear in Google’s search results, you’re not getting objective information? Google hangs on to your past searches, takes your location into account, and gives results accordingly. You end up seeing an inaccurate representation of where your site appears in the search results.

If you haven’t climbed aboard the Google Chrome train yet, check out Jeff’s page for his trick.
Happy search engine optimization!
