How well a particular web page or web site is listed in search engine results. For example, a web page about apples may be listed in response to a query for apples. However, rank indicates where exactly it was listed be it on the first page of results, the second page or perhaps the 200th page. Alternatively, it might also be said to be ranked first among all results, or 12th, or 111th. Overall, saying a page is listed only means that it can be found within a search engine in response to a query, not that it necessarily ranks well for that query. Also referred to as position.
