    I have local clients all over the US and want to know how I can monitor their 7 pack ranking if I am in another city, state, etc.. Appreciate any responses.

    Cheers

    I've yet to find anything that is regularly accurate. Especially anything for local.

    I only have a couple handfuls of clients, but what we've done in the past is setup remote desktop w/ some sort of limited functionality, and we will perform those searches from the client's IP.

    You can just change your location in google search settings, it should display local pack regardless of your IP

    what smeak said.. of course you can also always add the town and state to the search query, but i've always just changed location in search settings

    In my experience, doing so really doesn't improve accuracy much. To be truly accurate, and even then it is far from perfect, you need to be searching locally, which means with a local IP. Vancouver search, Vancouver IP. I've abandoned most trackers for this reason. Instead, I am looking for a self hosted solution that I will put on a Vancouver machine, and run rankings for my local clients.

    SEO global extension. If the client is on top of the 7 pack, assume it is accurate. If not, its inaccurate and call it a day ;).

    I have used adwords to see locally. Use the ad preview and diagnostics. I just did a search for a service business in Miami Florida and the 7 pack showed up
