    Does that mean just showing up in google's search?
    Does it mean showing up in the first 10 results for a particular keyword?

    Rank refers to the position of your blog or site that appears in the results of Search Engine. Although they are sometimes augmented with local listings, videos, and images.
    Ranking is influenced by age of site, quality of the site links relevancy of the page and the level of competition among others.

    Yup, you are right but not only for 10 results. It will be calculated upto the last page of search result.

    RANK is an algorithm used by google search to RANK websites in their search engine results. RANK works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is.

    FYI
    RANK details:
    0] You're not even listed on Google Page Rank list.
    1] Very poor, but at least you are listed.
    2] Poor, but you have potential to move up and it can be done.
    3] Average. You have good information and most websites fall in this ball park.
    4] Above average. You're sprinting away from the majority.
    5] Good. Page Rank 5 will usually pop up on the first page of some searches.
    6] Great. You've worked hard and have great information.
    7] You're hot and you're one of the top sites. Your peer is Zillow.
    8] You’re super hot, and your peers are CNBC, EBay, Bing, American Idol.
    9] Everyone wants you, you are like: Youtube, Yahoo, Facebook, Apple, Amazon.
    10] Finally, the 10s: Google, CNN, usa.gov, and social bookmarking website AddThis.

    When people ask you if your site is "ranking", they're asking if it's in the top 10 (some people may actually refer to the top 3 results).

    When people talk about ranking, they usually mean appearing on page 1 of google for your keywords.

    This means getting to the top-100 for a keyword. You can rank for a keyword on 1st-100th place. If you're below that line you're not ranking. If you're on the 101st position, you simply don't rank. There's no sorting or anything beyond the 10th page (100th place) of Google it's just a pile of random crap.

    I think most people mean top 10, but I like the top 100 theory. Because one you see yourself in the top 100, you get inspired to lower it.
