    Hi everyone,

    It's been a while since I have looked at the rankings of my web development site and just now I can see that my site is no#1 out of 682 Million results in Google.co.nz. I'm logged out of all my gmail accounts and have cleared all cookies etc so am wondering if someone from NZ can check that the first result for the term "web developers" (without quotes) is my site at:

    Code:
    https://bitly.com/webdevdesign+
    ??

    This is the search result URL I got for the search:
    Code:
    http://www.google.co.nz/search?sclient=psy-ab&hl=en&site=&source=hp&q=web+developers&btnG=Search
    It would be bloody fantastic if I was even on the front page of Google.com for the term, let alone no#1, but my main target market is NZ so it suits me fine.

    Thanks for the confirmation everyone :). Was thinking of putting my site through No Hands SEO but after seeing that I think I'll leave things they way they are for now. My site also has a legit PR of 4 and since I've sold over $200 worth of backlinks from the site I don't want to let that slip too much.

    @miansc I feel ashamed in saying this (since I am a kiwi and all) but since I spent a few months in Aussie in 2005 I've always regarded there as my second home lol.

    [EDIT]: I just checked my results for Google.com and it says I am no#21, or top of page 3... I got this by looking at:

    Code:
    http://www.seoserp.com/web_tools/google_top_1000_serps_checker.asp?TheGoogle=www.google.com&k=web+developers&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.interkiwiwebdevelopers.com%2F&serp=SERP&submited=submited
    Would be good to push my site to Page 2 or ultimately Page 1 but it doesn't concern me too much as long as I'm ranked well enough in Google.co.nz, and I know the term Web Developers is highly competitive for the .com version of Google. This site is one I don't really do any BlackHat link building at all, thats mainly for my other sites.

    Spent most of my time on the Central Coast and Sydney, apart from an abo spiking my drink I encountered the friendliest people I ever met and had many good times. 7 years later I have a partner and 2 y.o son so getting back over there will be a challenge but soon as I finish my I.T degree Brisbane is looking like a good possibility - the place is full of Kiwis like Manly is in Sydney lol.

    Have been privileged enough to travel around most parts of NZ at least twice (north and south semi-extensively) and everytime I have flown above Auckland I keep thinking how huge it is, then I compare that with clips taken from Air New Zealand flights landing in Los Angeles...
