    I am not very sure what is the purpose of this review, because it's not exactly a review, I just want to say if you are using a lot of rank trackers you are going to get crazy :D

    So I will present you screenshots from 8 rank trackers, both web-based and desktop based for 3 keywords, they are presented as "kw1" "kw2" "kw3" on the screenshots, they are not in order on all of the screenshots, so be careful :) The rank trackers are: Traffic Travis, Rankerizer, CuteRank, SerpAttack, Serpfox, Serpbook, Serpscan and MicrositeMaster, so 4 web-based and 4 desktop based. So let's start.

    Oh, maybe it's good to mention if there are paid/free. All of them are free but they have limitations, only Serpbook is paid but the trial is 0.95$ so I would consider it free.

    Traffic Travis

    Rankerizer

    SerpBook

    SerpScan

    MicroSiteMasters

    As you can see the rankings shown can vary, actually the difference is between the web-based and desktop based rank trackers. I did not use USA proxies for the desktop based programs. As I've mentioned this is not typical review, because I am not going in details explaining what I like and I don't like about each one of them.

    Which one is the most accurate, I wish I knew... but I don't. My advice is stick to one or two. I personally like the most SerpBook and Serpfox, but I would prefer Serpbook, because the rankings are updated on every 2 hours and Serfox updates the rankings on every 8-10 hours. But Serpfox has better graphics in my opinion.

    Cheers !

    for me serpfox is as accurate as it gets. I usually test it with my Wm-ware machine + private USA proxy. Results are always the same

    +1 for serpfox

    What do you mean by "Which one is the most accurate"? The one that is right with your ranking is most accurate.

    Nice collection of reviews - I would recommend you double check them with a webproxy to verify the rankings.

    For web based trackers I like SerpBook. For desktop based I like Advanced Web Ranking & Rank Tracker Enterprise by Link Assistant.

    I'll look into them just out of curiosity. With that being said, buy yourself a copy of SEO PowerSuite Rank Tracker. It's worth it!

    I've tried different rank trackers, and SerpBook has my vote. It was definitely the most accurate out of all of the rank trackers, although all of them vary by a few positions, and are never perfect.

    Serpfox is pretty great I have been enjoying it. I haven't tried serpbook but if it's only advantage is updates every 2 hours that's kind of overkill haha. I don't need 12 daily updates!

    I am doing this as well, but only if the trackers show some drastic increase or drop.

    I like Link Assistant's Rank Tracker too, but how could I not like it when I was lucky enough to win the iPhone 4s from Link Assistant's Seo Olympics :D But I want to check the ranking directly from my phone when I am away, so I am going to stick to Serpbook and Serpfox. And if I see some massive drop or increase I am using them all to verify it.

    I also tried AuthorityLabs which has free trial but it's way behind the others, I can understand when are they updating maybe once in a week.. I can't include serpbuddy because they don't have a free trial.

    I use SEO Powersuite Rank Tracker and I think its very good....But then again I am not the type to check my rank every two hours. In fact I concentrate on building my sites and only check rank on other peoples sites or if my hits seem to be tailing off.

    OP I know you said this is not a copperfast trial but it would be interesting for testing purposes if you did this.
    Use the 8 Checkers and collect the results.......Then manually check to see your actual rank
    Do this, say every monday for four weeks then post the results...This would give a clearer picture of which checker shows consistent accuracy.

    Most web based rank trackers allow you about 10 keywords to track for free. So if you are low on budget, just sign up for different rank trackers, and use the free keywords limit, that way you can track 50-60 keywords for free.
