    Something very bizarre going on with one of my keywords...

    I've got the paid version of Market Samurai, which tells me I'm #23 for my keyword. Now I thought that was slightly odd considering I've been around the top 10 for the last four or five days and haven't changed anything in that time.

    So I checked Rank Tracker for Firefox...which tells me I'm #27...again, very odd.

    So I just picked up the Pro version of Traffic Travis...which tells me I'm #13. This sounds more like it.

    I clear all my settings in Firefox, reload, and find myself in #13 spot for my keyword.

    So I go back to Market Samurai, click where it tells me I'm #23...and sure enough, there I am, in #23. :confused: Even though when I cleared and reloaded Firefox, it had me in #13. I close the Firefox page Market Samurai loaded, re-open...and I'm back in #13 again?! :confused::confused:

    Very bizarre, any idea what's going on there? Slightly concerned that a paid program is giving me, in my opinion, the wrong rank. I believe #13 is correct but I have absolutely no idea now...

    Its the same with most of my sites too. I think sescout gives a reliable results but still not 100% accurate. Not sure whether there is a permanent solution for this?

    Sounds like your different products are checking different data centres... There's no one single index - updates are getting pushed to different data centres all the time, and even different data centres in different parts of the US will give you different results.

    Moreover, even in the same office may have different results.
