I use in-house checkers but recommend the keyword tracker over at DigitalPoint http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/

At the moment it only does Google but I know that Shawn has a new version in beta that does Yahoo and MSN as well and it will be available very soon.

WebPosition is by far the most advanced and comprehensive rank checker, and has been around for years.
It has built in delay, so as not to trip frequency triggers at Google and Yahoo, and get your IP locked out from performing searches..

It has a host of other features, and creates nice reports that can be exported online.

Not true - it's a micky mouse product. Just the simple fact that it has what you said a "built in delay, so as not to trip frequency triggers at Google and Yahoo, and get your IP locked out from performing searches" demonstrates a lack of integrity. Both search engines have an API for queries http://www.google.com/apis/ and http://developer.yahoo.net/ so WebPosition does not have to resort to unnecessary deception. That fact that it does should tell you something about the product.

Duz,

I'm very familiar with the API's at both Google and Yahoo..
Both are very limited in the number of queries you can run during a single 24 hour period.

Web Position has over 1 million registered users.  I wouldn't call that "Mickey Mouse"...
They must be doing something right? :)

We use it in house, and have been very satisfied with the reporting functionality for our 700+ clients, tracking ranking on 1.2 million keywords.

It's not a problem. We just register each client for an API and stick a few lines of code on their server. WebPosition could easily provide a similar capability but choose instead to contravene Google's Webmaster Guidelines "Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Gold™ that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google".  For a commercial organization this shows a certain lack of integrity much like their advertising and sales pitch imo.

Snake oil salesman generally do have a lot of users and not only that but a lot of their users are convinced the formula works for them. This doesn't make it a good product.

Duz,

I'm not sure what your "hard on" is for 1st Place Software, but you really need to let up.
It's the most commercially recognized rank reporting software in the SEM vertical.
They don't employ any sales people, so that's an added testament to their product, support, and long term success.
Who made you the God of SEM? :)

What Google publicly posts is a different ball game than what's really allowed.
They supposedly are 100% against cloaking, yet they were caught themselves doing it, just a few weeks back.
G is not God, they are just another SE.  I for one am very happy to see MS release their own SE, and dump Inktomi.
Having (3) players in both the paid search and organic search market, is going to level the playing field more.

I've been in this space since the early days, when Excite was king, and powered AOL, Infoseek & AV were up and coming players.
G better not rest on their laurels, because the last 9 years on the web have proven that "shelf life" can be very short at the top of the heap.

Assisted by your objectionable post I have clearly made my point and further exchanges with you would be counter productive. There is enough information in this thread for the questioner and future readers to arrive at a conclusion.
