    Hi,

    I was checking what search queries are popular using google webmasters. My site is 4 days old, so I only have 4 search queries, google says that all these queries or on page 2, however when I go search the queries there not there or in the top ten pages in fact I can't find them at all. Am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    yes I see the same thing for some of my clients. The data they represent does not match with real data. check the Date ...in the data represented by them.....they are representing old datas...and we are checking in real time...may be this is the hack !

    Google doesn't display the same results to every person in the world. In some locations your ranking may be one the first page, in others you may rank on the 5th+ page.

    The reason your stats say ALL your queries are on page 2 is because somewhere in the world, your website appeared in the SERPs on page 2. The reason Google isn't reporting your site on page 10 is because, well, nobody goes back 10 pages in the search results.

    Google only reports your SERP position when it is displayed to someone.

    Also, keep in mind that Google's reports are not accurate. They are general estimates and like aka sam said, Google doesn't display live stats in WMT.
