    Hi there

    Have for a long time just been using TT4 to check my rankings on google, and then just used hidemyass to check up on different random issues. Yesterday I saw some pretty weird movements in a local google according to TT, so decided just to check up on it through hidemyass. Hidemyass gave me some very different SERPs in the local google which made much more sense.

    This morning I decided to have another look through the manual glasses of hidemyass as another one of my clients had some really bad rankings according to Traffic Travis and I couldn't figure out what happened to them. So went through several of the keywords, and I found with hidemyass that it gave a somehow very different picture again than what I found through TT.

    I have some questions or inquiries on this problem!

    Why is there a difference in the the two tools and results on the same Google's one of them where I noticed a big difference was on google.co.uk? And who to trust?

    Furthermore which alternative tools do you guys use instead of TT4 as I think I might need a second automatic SERP checker-tool?

    Best Regards
    CD

    Check for proxies location. it must be the same as your client's. I use HMA with rank tracker and have no issues when selecting USA only proxies for checking in google for USA traffic. Also, the same applies to other countries and proxies.
    Otherwise, you can try microsite masters or serpfox for automatic rank checking without any headache :)

    Hi ttweb
    Thanks for your comment. I am actually testing rank tracker now, and seems like it does a much better work...
    Thanks
