    Hi,

    i´m used to check my rankings with Ranktracker and manually sometimes for verifying.

    Google Webmaster Tools gives me way worse average positions than Ranktracker. I checked German and Spanish sites with it.

    For example, i´m on #2 for a keyword and i have a CTR of 4%. GWT tells me that my average position is #13.

    I thought it is because googe listings are different depending on the country where You are and i let some friends check who live in the targetted country and both saw my website on #3.

    How far is the GWT-data trustable?

    I just use the rank tracker in market samurai, always very accurate.

    But ya, never trust Google :p
