I am new to SEO world and trying to learn things. I have a web site around 1&half years old. I am trying to get one page of that site in the rank 1 for one keyword.
I have managed to get it on first page of google using article marketing, profile linking & some free directory linking. Now since the caffeine is on it's way, I regularly check ranking using IP addresses. Recently I have noticed strange thing.
If I query for my keyword < with one SEO tool >, my site is on rank 1 for all data centers. If I query in www.google.com in India(my country), I am on rank 1 there also but if I query in USA using proxy via www.google.com, then I am on rank 6.
If I query any of the USA data center using IP address (the same IP which is shown in ShowIP extension), then also I am on rank 1 but if I use www.google.com then I am on rank 6. Now I want to know why there is a difference in results and what is my actual ranking in USA? Is this difference is there due to the update of caffeine? Will I be on rank 1 in USA in January?
