In a percentage of requests from google, google gives the ranking of the result on the search page.

We currently parse this ranking and display it in the Live! or Visitor Log when we have it. (see function getKeywordPosition() in plugins/Live/Visitor.php)

It could be interesting to, add a new field in log_visit to keep track of this ranking when it is passed, and add a new column in the keyword report "Average position" of keyword.

This is clearly something that is missing. From my understanding, however, there could be a slight usability issue as the value varies according to the visitor... Maybe we could show the range of known rankings?

Since google now gives the position in so many requests, this requests makes a lot of sense and we could add this report. Also to add in Referrers > Overview > Best ranked keywords (weighted by traffic).
