    I've manually checked my website by doing private searches in all browsers possible at various locations and computers. My website is a local business, however the rankings don't seem to vary much regardless of these fators.

    So I'm on the hunt for the best SERP checker, paid is fine and money is no issue. Started with SEOScout, and it's giving me positions 4-18 over what they should be, seems really off. Then gave SERPFox a try and I have to say it's very accurate, we are talking 1-2 spots off at most.

    My point is, what SERP Checker are you finding that really works? I'm starting to love SERPFox, but I'm wondering if there's any better ones out there?

    Besides the fact that it is broken all the time?

    There are other rank trackers with more features, but if it is accuracy you want I'd go with MicrositeMasters.

    I've found rank trackers to be a strange thing tbh, there is some damn good ones out there even from members here like lanbo and basetrackerboats, the thing is as I understand it these trackers use a lot of different ips and can end up checking different data centres so sometimes 1 tracker may be off from the results shown on another and vice versa, its tricky I personnaly use serp-book the support is great and its good because i can give clients a unique link to check their own rankings which was the big winner for me when picking it, but i've heard good things about serpbuddy too so its hard to say....

    I've been using serpbook for several months. Honestly, for your money, it's very good. Not to mention all of the free updates that add some handy features. Dead on accurate as well & its really good for managing clients. I would recommend it.

    You may find differences in Data centers like t0mmy is saying as that is impossible to manage but there are a few that are solid out there.

    Sescout or Serptracker are the best and use a similar platform. They are a huge time saver and well worth the small investment for me.

    this is the biggest problem with seo industry, so many bullshit rank trackers.

    i try all of them and most of them just dont cut it. they make easy mistakes and dont think through how the process should work.

    pisses me off. i like serpfox but they still have issues and from a usabilty standpoint its pretty bad. but again its the best out there. they should just really think through the process though.you can tell its not really designed by an seo guy.

    I am using SEScout, SEscout is the most powerful SERP tracker ever created.

    Don't go for easyseotracking . Waste of money. The site is locking my account every few days and sends empty reports. I raised more than 20 tickets and never got any replies...

    Serpbuddy and serpchecker are the top ones right now as far as I know. You should use on of them and test them out.

    Even as a free option, Serpfox is excellent.

    Accurate, simple, and sends out the emails whenever your SERP jumps so you can giggle like a school girl when you hit the #1 spot.

    The harsh keyword limits make this tool horribly unappealing to me. If they want $99 a month then why don't they just come out and say it... 50 keywords is a joke to me. I need WAY more keywords...
