I need some quick help here with figuring out keyword rank in google. I have used many of the keyword rank tools I found searching in google.com but never see my site ranking for anything in those tools.

Here is my issue and I need help with understanding this:

My domain is concertscomingup.com
Keyword I am targeting: concerts coming up
- when I search "concerts coming up" in google I am on the first page. But when I use a keyword rank tool they all show my site not showing up in the top 1000. What is the deal here? What am I missing?

    You are #5 for me... Its probably something with the rank tools that you are using or a discrepancy in the data centers they are checking. What tools did you try?

    BTW this can be posted in the adsense SEO forum.

      I have used countless and I never rank. Is there a good free search keyword rank site I should be using?

      I see some folks pulling their rank for a keyword for every day the past 60 days, where should I be pulling this data?

    Do you get traffic for this keyword in Analytics?
    Make sure you are logged out of your gmail account, and have cleared all cookies and cache when searching for your keyword. Also make 100% sure you are searching in Google.com and not your country specific Google.
    Alternatively you can use Chrome's Incognito mode to search for your keyword. For instance, I can't find you on the first page when doing so.
    Hope that helps

      I just searched using chrome incognito and I show up fourth. So I still don't understand it. I rank but every rank tool tells me I don't.

        Have you tried the free keyword ranking tool at whatsmyserp<dot>com. I use this tool and I have found it is very accurate. Give this tool a try and see if it works for you.

        You can check for up to 25 keywords for your domain name and see how they rank in Google.

        Good Luck.

          Take a look at the screen shot, it shows me not ranking. I am very confused.

    Google is now personalizing search results with your past search. Try the following. Delete your cookies, Delete your cache. Open a new incognito browsing session and search your keyword again. Are you still number one?
