    For the last couple weeks, I've noticed that kw's are not showing up in the proper places in either rankcheckerace or serpbook...a manual search shows one thing, but clients and i see another (yes, we're logged out, incognito, cache cleaned, etc). Just wondering if I'm the only one?

    everything fine here as usual..

    you are aware that nowadays you can't get same results when using different IPs, are you? There are always fluctuations with couple positions up or dow

    Rank Checker Ace is pretty accurate for me, sure it's off by a few spots on some keywords but I think that's to be expected like innozemec said. Sometimes the results will seem way off but in reality it's just them seeing results served up from a different location so it's accurate to that location.

    This tool used to work, it's timing out for me right now but maybe it will work for you and you can see how different locations will be serving up slightly different (or sometimes very different) results.

    Well for the only site I currently own, the keyword ranking results are pretty accurate. I'm using serpbook.

    Yeah, it is mostly one client in Nova Scotia...swears that they are ranking well for search terms...doing manual search, cleared cache, incognito, etc. Says they asked their friends in the next town to check and they are getting the same results.

    They came to me a couple days ago, after getting slammed by 2.1, and I'm seeing them at ~35 or below, but they say they see their rankings coming back, with one or two terms on the 1st page. :-/ I feared it was something with the rank trackers, but sounds like a case of a client who is either getting results based upon their location or something else.


    Thanks for the tool, btw, timing out for me too. I used to use Scroogle, but that has been dead for a while.
