    Hi there,

    I've recently set up my first WP blog and I'm trying to figure out my ranking on Google for main keywords... I've tried some different websites that offer this service for free and they're telling me my site doesn't rank in the top 100 for the keyword I've put in...

    If I manually put it into Google I find myself on Page 6. Someone else told me that Market Samurai puts me at 57...

    How do I find an accurate ranking?!

    Thanks! :confused:

    That 'someone' is me. I assume you are not trusting my words.

    Nope completely trust your words! What you said made the most sense, since it pretty much tallies with what I found from manually on Google, I just don't understand why the results are coming out differently on other methods, and want to find a way that I can do it myself, because the software you mentioned seems to cost!

    SEOmoz dot org campaign monitor tracks your keywords and keeps them up to date. Be warned though: their blog content will transform you into a white hat.

    And it only costs $99 a month :) Maybe when I start earning some money I'll take another look!

    I personally use Rank Tracker Enterprise. I would highly recommend it.

    I use Sescout.com though it's been a real piece of crap lately and starting to piss me off.

    Another option is Rank Checker plugin for firefox if you use it.

    I seem to get inconsistent results from each one.

    best way to check your rankings, go to some proxy and just do a google search and locate your website. that is the only way out if you are unable to get some softwares. :)

    Rank Tracker is what I rely on completely, I'm obsessed and always have it open on my computer. It's available as a [GET] here on BHW :)

    I have that one too but don't use it. Do you need to use proxies with it if you are doing 100+ keywords/sites?

    use US proxy and type in google.com manually there.

    or use marketsamurai as well as seoserp.com, they provide way more accurate results compared to other SERP trackers.

    If you just want to check a few rankings without your browsing history, location, and personalization getting in the way add a "&pws=0" to the end of the URL of your search query.

    It sets personalized search to "false" and will give you some more honest results.

    Though for real rankings I use SEOMoz and RankTracker...

    Yes, Rank Tracker is best.

    I use the scheduling and human emulation to get rankings of about 1500 keywords of my clients every week !
