    For example when somebody brag about ranking a website,how "that person" knows SEO,etc, can he say it only when he is like in top 3 or top 5 results,or he knows seo even if he rank for example on end of third page?

    To explain this better. My opinion is that it is easy to rank on 2-3 page of google results. For example let's take niche "hay day hack". This niche have about 75k searches per month. When you rank for it on #1,you will probably have about 100$ per day if you have good landing page. But lets say somebody makes a website for it and rank on #27. Is it ok for him to brag that he "ranked website" and that he knows SEO,things like that. For example,I don't know how you guys stand with SEO,but I can rank on at least second page for this niche in less then two months. But ranking for one of top 3 positions is problem. For that I would need to invest money,and probably it would take me 4-5 months,half a year. First position earns about 100$,with good landing page,it depends from countries. Second place would probably earn about 50$,third 35$,then 25$,and 10th position about 5-10$ per day. But when somebody rank on #27,he would earn like 1$ every second day (which is hard truth).

    Now do you think then people should say that they can rank website,only when it is top 3 or top 5 positions,or it can be even #27 position for example?
    In my opinion,it is easy job to rank it there,but getting on first page,and in top 3,where real money is,is a problem. What do you guys think?

    It seems a lot of people didn't get my point. Here you go.

    There are a lot of people who say that they "CAN RANK A WEBSITE",or they are saying "I RANKED MY WEBSITE I KNOW SEO",when in fact,position they ranked is end of third page and they make almost nothing for that website. I think that you know SEO only when you ARE ABLE TO RANK ON AT LEAST #5. Because that is where real money is. Do you agree with me?

    Sorry for not explaining it in the first place and my grammar mistakes.

    Thanks,that is what I think. Because people are saying "I ranked my site for some niche",and they are second or third page. I think that "I ranked website" should automatically mean that you are AT LEAST on first page,and even in top #5. :)

    That is not ranking a website and saying so is a misnomer at best.

    My dogs can get a site on the 3rd page by doing tricks and barking at people walking down the street.

    You are right OP, with good onpage SEO you can rank on the 2nd and 3rd page on google for your keywords... But ranking on the first page. (Not just the first page, but the first 3) will take more than 'knowing seo' but proofing it.

    I only say I'm ranking for a keyword when I'm on the first page. The only time I would say that I ranked for a keyword when the site is on page 2 is if I ranked a page for a very popular keyword that people would go to the 2nd page for.

    Ranking means top 3 or at least top 10 on the first page. Other than that, its not called ranking.
