    Hi,

    I like SERPBOOK it is actuallt the best Rank Tracker tool I have seen, tested almost any of the rank trackers suggested here at BHW none of them have the same feel and look like this one... BUT... for the past 10 days I have seen that it shows inaccurate ranking results. For instant it can show 1 keyword on spot 4 and if you check it with their own Explorer it shows spot 7 or 8 and if you use a different Rank Checker then it shows maybe spot 5.. any idea why it is so?

    I always set the rankers to check on Google.com !

    I also use SerpBook. I think using browsers is not accurate at all, there can be cookies and flash cookies that change the right results.
    Also, it can change if you are doing searches from another country outside US.

    Anyway, there are always some little difference between different ranking tools

    That's true, when I say browser I mean SERPBOOKS build in browser! That's why I wonder how it can be different!??

    different google datacenters..their proxies are probably in a different geo than you/other checkers are in. as for why their own results are different from their own internal browser...can't explain that one. strange.

    I've tried SERPBook and other Rank Trackers extensively. The results sometimes vary with my manual searches mainly because of the kind of proxies used. It goes without saying that results do vary from one country to another. Thus, the main flaw with services which have their own ways to update the rankings is that you do not have control over how accurate the results are since you have no idea what proxies they use. In my experience, I can't afford that since I have toxic clients who check the rankings MANUALLY every 2 - 5 days and accuse me of "gaming" the trackers to show improvements.

    That is the reason why I have switched to SEO Powersuite's Rank Tracker since I have full control over what type of proxies and on what country the search engines will be based in. My two cents.

    PS: Not affiliated in any way with them, just using their tools for more than 2 years.

    Can you Refresh the Ranking as many times as you like or is it limit by a number per day as all the others have done this?

    You can schedule it to be X number of times per day depending on what time of the day. You can also schedule them to be export/sent to a specific email address/es. I haven't tried hitting a limit though but I usually just refresh 1 - 3 a day so haven't tried the refresh extensively though.

    Hey Ruthsam, Serpbook is one of the better rank trackers out there and they are in no way misleading (to my knowledge). I think the different rankings have to do with Google's dynamic rankings (based on device, geo location, search history, etc. etc.).

    So you could totally get different results by checking the same keyword with different IP's the same second.

    If you're not satisfied and know a bit about coding you are totally free to try our search API which is cheaper and accurater ;-) searchapi.io :)

    Hi, there can be several factors why your site is showing a different ranking - from the information we have gathered from your post, it looks like your site is dancing around at the moment. This would explain why there is a fluctuation of the rankings (different rankings on different rank trackers + your own browsers).

    Note: Our Spyglass tool will perform a live query (so you will be able to see an instant update of your keyword search). If your site is dancing around, it would show a slightly different ranking depending on which Google datacenter it is connected to.

    If you have any further concerns, please send us a PM or an email and we can take a look into it for you.

    I must say from all the rank trackers I have tested I always go back to SERPBOOK it has just a better look and feel and you can have several domains and keywords under 1 page!

    I just have problems with the software updating the ranking as I wanted :)

    Will e-mail your support now.
