You start searching for similar keywords revolving around your posts, and it ranks number one on every keyword. You intend to follow similar practices with your future articles but don’t know what caused your first article to rank at the top.

Well, that’s about to change as Google is now rolling out a feature to show you why exactly a specific web page is ranking in the search results.
