    Hey guys.

    Just checked my serps for one of my new sites. For me in Firefox its ranked #4.

    In chrome its on page 5 (its old rank)

    I asked two people where it was for them (in Firefox) and they said page 5.


    Why is it doing this? Is it going to update for everyone on page 1?

    Edit: before you ask, no I'm not logged into my G account xD


    Thanks! :D

    Weird, now I'm #3 in Firefox and nowhere to be seen in chrome.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    This has happened to me before.. I was told it was because i googled it on my firefox browser to check the rankings... Have you searched for the keyword on search engines before it was updated as #4?

    This is also happening for another site and keyword.
    For this site, its #2 for me, in Traffic Travis its #2, according to serprush.com its page 4.. (its old rank) I also don't have the traffic or leads to suggest I'm in #2 position.

    However Traffic Travis says my first site isn't in the top 20.

    What the hell? :S

    Had this happen to me too, you are simply hitting different databases on each browser or you didn't clear cookies and cache on firefox and it adjusted the rankings as you visit the site a lot.
    If you go through a proxy, it will probably be a little different too. Its just how it is.

    So what I'm looking at is most likely a newer version of the database?

    That or you didn't clear cookies or something else google is identifying you by. If they see you go to the site a lot, they will rank it higher just for you.
    (clear cookies, cache, change IP, flash cookies, etc and try again.)
    You can also ask a friend to see what they see from their browser.

    The IP, cookies and cache reset sent the 1st site back to its old position.

    The 2nd site remained #2.. So I think the issue with the 2nd site is databases and the 1st site was just me. Just asked a friend about the 2nd site, he said its not on the first page... :/

    I guess I'll just keep building links.

    Ctrl+F5 to completely reload the page rather than using your temp internet files.

    If you want unbiased search results you can use a site called startpage. It hides your ip and doesn't allow cookies.

    Thanks, although this seems to be the same results as google.com.au (since I'm from Australia)

    I have tried a number of means to check the sites rankings. Serprush.com, hidemyass.com, Traffic Travis and Startpage. They all seem to differ.

    My only conclusion is that they are all using different databases in different locations and that they will update and catch up eventually.

    Thoughts?

    Absolutely true, it's called localized search results, and no matter how hard you try, you can't get the exact results everyone will see. Your best bet is to take the average of all these databases and try to improve on that. You can also try to get links from specific countries to increase those rankings, as well as local directory listings by creating local information on your site.
