    I've been starting to rank a new site on a pretty competitive keyword.

    Lately i've been going from rank 150 to now 44 in WMT. However, when I google that keyword I find my site on google page 13, IF I EVEN FIND IT AT ALL.

    Whats up with that? any theories? Anyone had the same problem?

    Cheers

    1. You need to define region in WMT to get rankings for the actual country you try to rank in
    2. You should define a date range, like a week
    3. GWMT shows you where you ranked for actual users, this can be influenced by personalization etc.

    Normally for me WMT is very exact for rankings, but needs to be used correctly.

    Keep in mind that Google wont tell you if you rank on page 15, because nobody clicks that far, hence there are no impressions or clicks to report.
