Rank/Ranking
The rank or ranking of a web page in a search engine index is a number indicating where that page is displayed in the organic results section on a search results page.

For example, on Google, the first search results page generally shows ten URLs, starting with the #1 ranking page at the top, and the #10 ranking page at the bottom. In this example, if you ranked #11 for a specific search phrase, you would appear at the top of the second page of results.

Rankings are often used as a metric to measure the success of SEO efforts; ideally search optimization for specific phrases will result in the increased rank of a website or page for that term.
