    Sorry I know this question gets asked all the time, but Just wondering in particular if people find TT reliable and if there is an alternative.

    I started using TT after I realized you couldn't get a good reading from the browser (even setting Geo Location from URL).

    However, after using TT for a while I have realised even it is not producing reliable results- for example, I was checking a particular MNS - TT says its #5 for the main keyword, but actually when I look in my stats I can see all the visitors that come to the site after searching from that particular keyword, and my stats (statcounter) reports between #10-#15 --these stats are showing Google.com, TT is set to USA.

    This tallies up with the amount of traffic Im receiveing (very little:)), and also I have noticed this with a few sites now.

    Am I missing something?
    Thanks:)

    For me TT gives prette accurate results. Just with the local results it sometimes has a problem, so my site jumps a lot(+-3 positions), but it´s always directly under the local ones.

    I use rank tracker as well, pretty reliable. I've also dabbled with micrositemasters as a set and forget rank tracking service which is also pretty reliable. The free account though is pretty limited if your looking to track quite a few keywords.
