    Whats up guys, I have been ranking videos for a local business and I stumbled across an issue when tracking the rankings of my videos.

    My video is local search optimized "keyword" + "state" and the video is showing up as #1 on google serps for me no matter if I change my IP, clear my cache, whatever, I even changed my IP to the other side of the country and it still comes up #1.

    The issue I am having is when I enter the YouTube URL into RankTracker, SerpBook, etc it shows the youtube serps correctly but shows no rankings for google serps. I know this is incorrect as I can clearly do the search myself and see the #1 rank. I decided to do some tests and I did some random google searches and found top ranking videos on the google serps and ran those though RankTracker and Serpbook with the same results, says there are no rankings in google but shows youtube rankings correctly.

    Anyone have a clue how I can check my Google Serp data for my Youtube videos and get correct info? :confused:

    Hey, ForceFed54, are you using this rank tracker http://www.link-assistant.com/rank-tracker/ from SEO Powersuite? This is the one I use for tracking images and videos in Google serp, and it seems to be working fine at my end. Make sure you check the box that says "Track universal search" or something. That could be the reason the Google serp is not showing.
