Definition of Search Engine Ranking

Search engine ranking refers to the position at which a particular site appears in the results of a search engine query. A site is said to have a high ranking when it appears at or near the top of the list of results. Just to confuse things, results are typically numbered starting at 1 and increasing down the list of results, thus a higher ranking corresponds to a lower number, 1 being ideal.
