Generally speaking, you cannot use Google Analytics to track the exact position of your site in the issuance of a given keyword, but you can determine on which issuing page the site is located.

People do not see the same results that you see with some of your ranking analysis tools. This is due to the fact that "personalization of search" and / or "local results" can greatly influence the issue. So why use Google Analytics - it will give a real picture of the ranking.

So step by step:

1) Create a new profile in Google Analytics

2) Create a filter that includes only search traffic

What you see is not the position in the issue, but the number of the first result on the page of issue for this keyword. For example, the figure 20 means the third page of issue, 50 - the sixth. (Yahoo and Live Search shows 21 and 51 instead of 20 and 50) When there are no digits, only “(page:)” means the first page of issue.
