    Hi,

    When I search for my blog using the k/w's I targeted its nowhere to be found on the normal search but when I do the advanced search for the exact phrase its there with quite a high rank.
    Just wondering if anyone has any ideas why G is doing this.

    Thanks a lot.

    NEVER track your SERP position using web browsers. Its not accurate as there are some factors like user preference, bla bla bla influence your search results. Always use a software. I use rank tracker which is pretty good.

    web browsers and serp rankings doesn't change a lot.

    The only reason is that your blog is not quite upto the mark to rank for the terms you wish it rank for.

    Build some backlinks with those keywords in the anchor texts, get some social presence, optimize the posts, you will eventually rank for the terms you wish for.
