    When I do a search for my keyword using my computer, I am #3 in the SERP's.

    When I go to a friends house, the same keyword is #22.

    This is also true when I use r_ankche*ecker.com.

    Has anyone see this?

    If you want to know your real rankings don't use chrome, flush cookies and such, make sure you're not logged into gmail youtube ... Or use software to check the rankings, traffic travis for top20 or rank tracker for other.
