Aaron Wall has written a pretty awesome rank checker tool Firefox plugin that checks various keywords against results on Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft Live. Here's a sample screenshot of what you're expected to see:

Rank Checker Tool from SEObook.com

While it looks like it's pretty accurate from my perspective, on Sphinn, one of the users note that it isn't completely accurate. Aaron has responded to inform us that the tool "clusters 100 results per page to minimize scraping on Google. That clustering can cause a shift in ranking compared to only seeing 10 results per SERP."

But I gotta say -- this is probably one of the tools that should have been made earlier and just hasn't been. Now, you really don't need an API key to run ranking tools. You can do it out of the convenience of your web browser. Thanks, Aaron. This rocks.

Forum discussion continues at Sphinn.

Works OK for me with Yahoo and Live, but not returning Google results at all for some reason!

Even I gave this tool a try too but didn't found that useful, it doesn't gives out the accurate result and even there is limitation to SERP. Due to this reason I thought to give something else a try and guess what I found it "SERC  tool" , this is amazing, it gives me everything what I was looking for. It instantly checks the keyword position and delivers a professional reports to clients.
