Here's a suggestion:

So you can scrape G/Y/B/A/Amaz

Now how about an "average" collumn where you could automatically have "-" (dashes/no results) count as 11s and then average the 5 (or 3 or 4 etc) column for one mega sort button.

Makes sense?

The numbers are "ranks", not ordinary numbers. That is they are ordinal, not cardinal (I think it's that way round).

Right. But I assumed that the ranking was supposed to be an indication or some sort of SEO value.

Let's assume that lower rank is "better."

You could average the parameters (ranks) replacing dashes with large penalizing ordinal numbers (11's say). Average the 5 ranks and sort from lowest to highest to narrow down a vary large list to the "better" keyphrase.

Meg, are you implying that this isn't worth doing because those ranks don't mean much? I wouldn't know, you tell me.

Thanks,
Tom

I THINK that it's rather like running heats to get the finalists for the last race. Just because someone comes in last in their particular heat doesn't mean that they couldn't beat someone who comes in third in a different heat. When Google "search" first appeared (so if you typed in letters in the search box, search terms using those letters appeared) you had up to 10 possible searches that started with the letters or words you had typed in. Those were the top 10 searches but the top search might have had a million people using it as a search term, while the bottom search item might only have had 10 people using that term. This is just my OPINION. I am NOT a guru on this. This may be complete rubbish.

It is all a mystery. I imagine Google to be sort of this evil Wizard of Oz / Omnipotent figure looking down at our feeble attempts to "crack the code." :(
