Cool trick for SEO heads: See Search Rankings in Google Analytics

Andre Scholten introduces a cool use for custom filters in Google Analytics. This method... while not exactly elegant... it does give you a way to see what page your most popular keywords rank on. The level of specificity leaves something to be desired. Are you ranking #1 on the first page, or #10 on the first page?

On a related point, I've never understood why Google Analytics doesn't integrate a search ranking tool. It was an integration I predicted when Google first purchased Urchin many years ago, but has yet to come to fruition.

Quick Note: You can view your custom reports in analytics in: visitors -> user defined
