There are approximately 10 search results on each Google page so if you are in the top 10 you are on page 1, top 20 on page 20 and so on. If you are not in the top 200 you will just see a – sign. That means you have more work to do for that keyword. You can also verify your position in the search results by scrolling over the rank number, holding down control, and clicking your mouse on the number – it will open the associated search results in Firefox.
