Because the search engines cant my results towards my likes, how can I sort of generically tell where I sit in an organic search for any given keyword?

I haven't seen an automated way to do this -- if some of the other Experts out there know how using a search engine service, I would be interested.

I'm sure that there are some pay-for SEO information sites/databases that would have historical data on a large set of keyword searches.

I've been doing it manually myself, typing in the search keywords and seeing where my site(s) come up for those phrases.

Keep in mind that if you do this you will be getting some "personalization" of results, even if you've turned off all profiling and Google (or Bing) accounts.

If you are looking for results from different parts of a country, or a different region, I would suggest using an IP address from that region or country (using a proxy) to see what Google/Bing would serve up for a "generic" user from that area.

Yes, that's the problem I run into, and I know that since everyone has some personalization, there's really no completely generic solution, but I I hope there's something out there..

I did find this, but they give me a zero on Google across the board, which I know is not correct.

http://myorganictool.com/  a bit of an amusing name too.

I know that SEOMoz has some analysis tools as well, but I haven't used/played with those.

The tool site that you mention has an Interesting name for sure.

I just got an email back that says they are fixing the bug and should be good in about a week. I think maybe they are what I'm looking for, but if there are any other ideas, I'd love to hear them.

You can use this tool - it has a free trial: www.marketsamurai.com. This tool will tell you many details about a keyword or keyword phrase (such as number of people searching a day and how many sites are using that phrase). It also has a rank tracker. You can compare your site to keywords and it shows you what page in Google, Yahoo and Bing your site shows up on for that phrase.

And another really simple tool is at www.hittail.com (also has a free trial). This one shows you all the keywords that are on your site that are being found in search engines.
