    I don't think it's very accurate, but maybe some times it's working well...
    The results match what I see in Chrome.

    I'm wondering whether IE is hitting different data centers or there's some type of personal search results from the Google toolbar or cookies.

    Coockies do affect search results. I always clear my personal data from browsers.

    I realize some time time when I visit my site to many times, and after that search for it, google will always push it on the first page. This is showing only to you, but for other people will show other results.

    So ALWAYS when you check rankings, clear personal data from browser.

    The Chrome results vs. I.E. appear to be more accurate based on the AWStats reports "standard list of keyphrases" and the adsense impressions.

    It seems to me the likely causes for the difference in the search results for Chrome vs IE are either (1) a bug in IE (2) the Google Toolbar (there's no toolbar in Chrome (3) IE is hitting a different data center (this appears unlikeky based on the traffic that I'm receiving on the keywords)

    Perhaps you are seeing differences related to Google's Personalized Results. Personalized Results are cookie driven through an identifier, so you could see different results with different browsers.

    Try checking the results using the AdWords Ad Preview Tool. That is supposed to strip out Personalized Results.

    This has solved the issue. It looks like there's an issue with IE. I have personalized search turned off. But haven't deleted the cookies.

    Browsers do not have their own search standards. Read the posts. The problems was a Google Personalized Results cookie.
