    I'm back in the game after a long layoff, but why would web master tools show all your keywords in the top 10, yet this is not the case? I have manually checked, used keyword checkers, and verified through Analytics that the traffic source is not there.

    Thanks

    webmaster tools does not tell you anything reliable...

    On webmaster tools it says my site gets about 350 clicks a day, but my site and analytics shows more like 600 a day form google.

    Webmaster says i am in top 3 for almost all terms, in reality they are #1-10 for searches.

    Do not judge your website with webmasters.. It does not show accuracy at all...

    That wasn't a stupid question at all, you were right ;)
    BTW the ONLY stupid question is the one never asked, so don't be too hard on yourself!
