We have a client who has a small website that is beginning to come through on the rankings. We did our usual monthly report and used webmaster tools and two other rank tracking tools to show what keywords the site was ranking on in google.co.uk.
Here is the weird bit... Every automated tool showed rankings in the top 20 for a group of key phrases - but when the client decided to manually search for them, they didn't find those rankings.
I also did a search and so did 2 others... No visibility on the SERPS. And as if by magic 3 weeks later the manual check on rankings and the rank tracking seo tools finally correlated again.
I am stumped with this, has anyone any idea what is going on here?
