    I'm using SERPLab, Whatsmyserp and SEO PowerSuite Rank Tracker.
    They all say I rank for my keyword as number 170-190, keeps changing with Google's dance but seems to stay put for a few hours at least.

    However...
    When I actually navigate to said position, I NEVER find my website anywhere.
    Can anyone enlighten me as to why this happens?

    Yes, you can. Take a look at Search Traffic, then click on Search Analytics.

    I chose Position + Queries on the top selection menu in grey color and now it's showing the keywords for which I rank and the SERP...
    HOLY SH** that's so useful! THANK YOU!!!
    In light of this, what's the point of using any other SERP service?

    Still can't find my website for some keywords though...

    Check your landing pages, maybe there is something wrong.

    Good to know that might be it, thanks.
    Hopefully my website won't disappear again after it all gets sorted.

    Might be possible which search engine and location you checking.

    you can check serps free checker which shows instant result for each keyword. https://serps.com/tools/rank-checker/

    I'm not sure about their paid service as i never used them.. free service is enough.

    Check it from Semrush. If you are ranking for some important keywords it will show your rankings for those keywords. The reason you can't see yourself is maybe your location (ip) . Google will show diff. results on diff. locations.

    Yep, Google will show different results on different locations. You can try some other tools like Semrush, SERPbook, etc with your location.
