Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
agerhart is right, and unless you have a lot of sites, you can check rankings by hand. Brett has some seo tools to use online (scroll down the page)
Those are very useful, particularly the web page size checker and the keyword density analyzer.
The best tool of all is your keyboard - go to the search engines you're interested in and look for yourself at what's working well.
But I agree: forget most of the software. I tried some doorway pages builder just for the fun of it - they are not even worth the time you spend downloading that crap :)
