How to tell where you really rank for terms on Google

Recently, I’ve encountered this question when talking to prospective clients:

“How do I really tell where I rank for terms on Google. When I do a Google search, we seem to be ranking okay for search engine terms.”

It’s critical to understand that what you search for is personalized by Google based off of your location and search history. Given this, it’s important to use tools that separate this personalized search and give you more of a true representation of where you rank.
