    Hi guys... since the last 2 months ... I have followed one piece of advice i.e take action. And in a small way it really helps you get ahead in the long run.

    I have 3 website for which some off site SEO has been done in the last few days.

    What tools can I use to see on which page of good my websites rank.

    Thanks

    I recommend setting your site up on Google Webmaster tools to keep track of your rankings easily for free.

    I have pretty good experiences with SESCOUT.com.

    Maybe you should give them a try. The FREE version will be enough.

    A member here suggested using different webmaster tool accounts for different websites, and not to link them. What do you think?

    Only reason I can imagine for this is if you interlink your websites together to flow link juice among them. Google Webmaster Tools would easily see your sites as main backlink providers for each other. Otherwise, I wouldnt worry. I have had ALL of my sites, including legit family websites, and HARDCORE porn sites on the same account on Webmaster Tools.

    That's what I thought(Doesn't make a difference part)
    Interlinking would be detected even if it's on the same IP address. Though it won't make that much of a difference if it's a shared hosting environment.

    A lot of people don't recommend using anything google(i.e. webmaster tools, analytics). Makes sense for me as well.

    As Corrupt says, Google has many other ways to get the information they need if they want it. It isn't hard to find sites which are on same host IP, or for Google to track your backlink pattern etc. Just because they don't show YOU this information until you verify your site in Webmaster Tools, doesn't mean they don't store this information already. I just don't get the logic behind avoiding google services.

    I think it comes down to putting all of your eggs into a single, unnecessary basket. Rank checking software is dirt cheap, heck, there are even free
    solutions. My recommendation is that for rank tracking, use paid services
    like Serpfox, or RavenTools.

    Most of us have been burned by the big G at one point or another. Its the
    same reason you see sites completely deindexed all at the same time, or
    when one sites banned in Adsense, so is the whole account.

    For most of us, Webmaster Tools is completely unnecessary.

    This. I use SeScout, which is shit right now becuse their servers were blocked. There's free option in SEO Suite (in DL section).
    SeScout is decent, even though they have issues sometimes. I track about 300 sites, so it makes it easier.

    The reason I use Webmaster Tools and recommend it more over any other tool, is because you can find keywords you didn't even realize you were ranking for, and improve on those. If you are ranked #19 for a keyword and getting lots of impressions but no clicks, then with a bit of work, you could bump that up and start seeing some clicks.

    People are always obsessed about ranking for a certain set of keywords, without really checking what they are naturally ranking for. They are fighting against Google, instead of working with them.

    I use other rank trackers to check my DAILY updates, but every Sunday I check Google Webmaster tools to see whats going on. Again, my opinion is that if Google wants to find all your sites, they can do it fairly easily, because most people host all their sites on the same ip and by checking the whois info, registration dates etc, it becomes quite obvious who owns what sites.

    I also would think Google knows that SEO companies track the rankings for multiple sites that dont belong to them, and so even though they may be doing blackhat on 1 site, doesn't mean they are doing it on all of them.

    If someone else can provide me a ranking service that shows every search term that gives me impressions, for free preferably, we can talk. Until then, Webmaster Tools is my recommendation.

    I use "seoserp" and the firefox addon "seobook's rank checker" sometimes although I have yet to find a tool that is actually accurate.. I just use them for a general overview if I am not able to find the site in the first few pages ;)

    Manual with deleted cache will always work the best in my opinion.
