    google webmaster tools in really bad for tracking keywords, rank tracker you will need proxies or half the time you won't get the results. Online services like serpbook are a lot better in my opinion.

    I've used rank tracker before and in my experience it's a pretty good tracker until you start tracking a lot of keywords and your competition. Then it just becomes a headache but it was probably due to me not having enough proxies.
    I just went with an online service, saved me the headache.

    As others have stated, don't rely on Google Webmaster Tools. They are very bad.
    I personally use SERPBook, it is really great.

    I believe rank tracker (if you mean this one http://www.link-assistant.com/rank-tracker/) is the best rank checking software. Yes, you need some investment in proxies. Yes, it might sometimes take time to check too many keywords - if you have like a hundred. Anyway if you take those in portions of 5 or 10 words it's much easier. But the features! You can check personalized rankings. You can check local results. You can find great keywords.

    Some people above say they switch to online tools from the desktop rank tracker because online apps are faster. Yes, they definitely are. But when switching from desktop to online, you sacrifice data scope. No online rank checker will give the same scope of data as desktop ones. Webmeup https://www.webmeup.com/ is somewhat close, but it's rather an exception.

    My opinion on Rank Tracker? The best rank tracking tool out there. Period.


    1. You can customize depth of your rank tracking (up to 100,200,500, etc)
    2. Track from different geo-locations (suitable for websites trying to rank for a local area only e.g: US, UK, Japan, etc)
    3. A built-in keyword suggester where you can combine your keyword research with your keyword tracking (Priceless)
    4. Integrate your Google Analytics so you can track which keywords are bringing you traffic (WTF?! Priceless x2)
    5. Oh...and the most common but powerful benefit of Rank Tracker. Unlimited keyword tracking. (Priceless x3)
    6. I almost forgot... They also got a cool graph thing for those who have a graph-fetish.

    I use Rank Checker Ace and still works very well and is free. WMT is useful for checking your CTR though at specific rankings.
