    Their rankings are different from serpbook . Like my website on serplab says its #13 . In serpbook it says is #43 . When I check is somewhere #40+ .

    After that I have 3 projects with the same website . (FULL URL ,DOMAIN URL , etc ) and the three projects show different ranking for the same keywords.

    I have a new page and it says its ranked #38 . When i click the "Search" button near the keyword and try to search my website on th encrypted.google.com I can't see my website .

    I know that the ranking can dance any minute but after I check I refresh the keyword and still the position is the same

    People see different rankings from different locations and contexts. Someone who is logged in will see personalized results. Someone searching from slow wifi like a ferry will have very slow sites ranked lower than normal in the results. This is why Search Console has to show you an average position. SEO rank trackers aren't good at accounting for this so you have to view your rank tracker data as a relative indicator... a.k.a. this week my page went two places up. The exact position will vary. This is a large part of the reason I gave up on rank tracking and switched to attributing SEO revenue. I don't give a shit about what the rankings do as long as the money keeps going up. Much better bragging rights too and if you are good at it it makes you immune to the SEO competition.

    When I used to take a ferry to work I noticed my rankings were awesome on the ferry and went back to normal in the office... You have to be careful with rank trackers and be as consistent as possible when you use them... Always check from same place, time, internet connection, etc... reduce variables to get the most consistent result.

    The SAAS website rank trackers seem a little scary to me because you can't necessarily control all the variables, but they should do alright as a relative indicator.
