    Clear your cookies and see if your site still ranks for the keyword. Again ranking for a keyword which does not have any demand - means nothing. Install any analytics software such as statcounter or Google analytics to check the source of your traffic.

    OP, buy any rank tracker tool and check your serp positions.. If you want to check manually clear your cookies and open browser in incognito mode and check for your keyword.

    Use SerpBook or some of the many Google ranker software. Also you may subscribe to any of these keyword analytics tools that tell you how many estimated searchs there are on a given keyw.

    Statcounter is not for rank tracking. For that you will need a rank tracker such as SerpBuddy. Also if you are checking your rankings in your browser then use private window.
