Can anyone recommend a ranking software? I have been looking at both the Rank Tracker - SEO Power Suite and my.webposition. Any thoughts?

I don't use any.
I just check 17 key-terms quickly manually, every two days or so.

I'm afraid I will be checking a large number of search terms. I guess you are using a computer with no search history, due to personalised search and all that.

No, but I am sometimes logged in as someone, sometimes logged in as someone else, sometimes not logged in at all and sometimes on another machine entirely.

Surely that is not a true reflection of your rankings, due to personalised search. Different machines will give you different results, which depends on the previous sites you have visited on the computer - how many times you have visited particular sites/how long you stay on the site etc... The main computer that you use to visit your own site will show you ranking higher then you actually do?

I am sure there are some differences, but 1) I generally don't visit my own site! :-) and 2) to a certain extent it does not matter which ranking system you use, as long as you are consistent in using it. I am primarily interested in whether my rankings go up as a result of work I do, stay the same or go down, for that reason I think I need to be consistent in the way I check rankings.

A very easy and accurate soft that I use is Free Monitor for Google. I hope it helps!

I think Advanced Web Ranking [advancedwebranking.com] is a very powerfull solution.
It has thousands of seach engines to choose from.
