I am getting very different results signed into and signed out of adwords preview tool enough to want to change my ad positions. 

 

Can someone advise what is the correct way of seeing the most accurate results, signed in or out  ?

Hi,David
Well It happens but not with a big difference,if it is happening with a big difference then check the location set and domain (.com or .co.uk) are they same on both cases.

Hi Hitesh

Yeah it maybe a place or two, but yes everything else is identical, but a place or 2 could be the difference between traffic and no traffic as we all know ?

Thanks

Hi,
Dont worry,if it is just ad position difference of 1 or 2 then there is no problem as ad is eligible for auction at every search and on every auction,things can change that is why Google gives "average position" .it is normal until it gives a big difference and even if its a big diff then check your bidding or CTR.

Hi Hitesh

Great thanks, so which is giving me the most accurate information signed in or signed out to the preview tool ? I don't agree with you about position difference of 1 or 2 is no problem as it can be quite large traffic numbers involved ?

Thanks

Hi Hitesh

You are wrong, I have 2 screens one signed in one signed out, identical time, identical searches and different results?

I need to know which is the most accurate one ? Is anyone at Google who can answer this for me please ?

Thanks

David
