    Anyone else notice this? Several times they report my keyword on the first page, yet its on the 3rd page. It's messing with my emotions!!!

    No 2 keyword trackers can report the same result. Also, none of them can ever be accurate as per manual checking. Rankings are very volatile in some cases, and can change even within seconds.

    I usually track my rankings with 3-4 trackers and use those to get an overview of my rankings.

    Sescout still owes me a few hundred from their aff program in the beginning. They never replied back...

    Yup - my free account there is showing inaccurate results as well.

    Some rank trackers just can't keep up!

    I use SEscout. I would not depend it for on day updates / day results.

    It is much more accurate in my opinion on a week to week basis.

    I am in a HIGHLY competitive niche, so yeah keywords can be very volatile, even hour to hour or less.
    That is why I go by weekly data (or monthly data) before making a decision if my SEO efforts are working.
    You also have to consider that Google needs a week or so to "dance" and settle for your site / keywords. One days data isnt going to give you a proper baseline.

    I have seen on a day to day (initially) my keywords be ranked at position 400, then rocket to position 5 and then drop to position 20 and then back up again to position 2
    And week to week data for the same keyword was "position 2"....see what I am saying? After one month I am sitting on position 2 for 4 of my keywords that were epileptic for the first two weeks.
