    So ive been using proranktracker as my main serp tracker. This past 2 days my rankings on 1 site have shown as dropped from a mixture of 1st place to anywhere in the top 4.

    Ive ran searches myself across 2 different desktops uaing incognito, and clearing cache and history on IE, my rankings are still 1.

    Ive also tried on 2 different mobile devices, using incognito on chrome. All my terms still show as 1.

    Any idea what the hell is going on please guys ?

    Have you asked somebody outside your area to take a look for your rankings? Google is shuffling sites around quite a lot at the moment. It is possible that prorank is using a different data center than you are from your location. It seems that we are in the middle / standing before a google update again and during google updates some datacenters update faster than others.

    The desktop and mobile searches have been done in different cities. Just from yeterday rankings in proranktrcker have changed again, ive used a web browser serp tracker and those are showing different results to prt.

    So im now getting different results cross prt , a web based serp tracker, and my own searches.

    Very frustrating!

    Most of the people here are using Serpbook including me, Seems pretty Accurate.

    Though i even use whatsmyserp.com which is free and you can check your serps on demand.

    I just tried this, it's showing my sites WAY higher than they actually are, just like SerpBook. It's really annoying. All that false hope.

    And yes, Google is up to something the past few days. Lots of movement.

    Yes, a lot of mi or movement very often for me ( as in hourly) this past weekend. Probably a google update expected in a few days

    I also find proranktracker showing some weird results.

    I wanted to track ranking of my particular youtube videos with a
    keyword. Prorank started to show other youtube videos on my
    rankings.

    I think there are many other factors involved in showing the results,
    such as nearby server of google, country ip.

    This is somehow not showing the real picture.
