    Make sure you are not logged into say a good account. This messes up your results as I have seen it before with my sites.

    I've noticed rank results and other on page elements change based on:
    - location
    - method acquired (manually, bot, script)
    - ip address
    - frequency checked
    - ... etc.

    Google and other engines use a large number of techniques to randomize data presented. I recently had a script coded to harvest index volume of keywords and Google, Yahoo, and Bing alter the number that I see when using my script and when I look at it in my regular browser.

    ... Google is especially efficient at detecting human vs. machine behavior. I've used a large number of techniques for various data mining purposes and sometimes have been captcha'd for just a few (approx. 3) bot automated searches before! ... They realize unnatural query volumes based on frequency and I assume historical data.

    I used google.com/search?q=my keyword to see my website's result. I see my website on page #6. I live in Vietnam. My friend lives in USA searching the same as me and my website rank #2 on page #1.
    I removed the effect of local google search so i think this is due to IP or cookie or cache.
    Searching when logging in a google account may affect the results as well, i think.
