    The default country in Rank tracker is USA. iF you are not from USA then rankings differ so check that in rank tracker if you are from another country .

    Google uses different data centers. Rank trackers can sometimes pull your rank from a data center that you might have never accessed from your PC. In some cases, it can take a few days for all the data centers to show the right rank. In some cases, they will actually never synchronize, especially if your site is always dancing a little bit.

    I show different rankings on different ones as well.
    It's a bit of a pain. I use SEScout.
    I have my two main keywords for one site with 14k exacts.
    SEScout has them as #10 and #27, but if you use zend2.com (US proxy), I show up as #2 on both of them. And it's been like that for months, for some reason.
