Ich bin wirklich froh, mit Ihnen einige weitere Informationen über die neue Rank Tracker Service teilen.

Dieser Blogeintrag enthält eine Menge Informationen, aber ich zu beantworten, wie viele Ihrer Fragen wie möglich über unseren neuen Service wollten. Insbesondere dieser Blog-Post wird umfassen:

  1. Eine Zusammenfassung über den aktuellen Stand der Rank Tracker-Modul.
  2. Ein Status-Update über die Fortschritte der neuen Rank Tracker Service.
  3. Was ist anders an der neuen Rang-Tracking-Service?
  4. Details von unseren kostenlosen Keyword-Tracking-Plan - auf der Grundlage unserer Nutzungsdaten Ich bin zufrieden mit unserem kostenlosen Angebot bekannt geben wird auf die Bedürfnisse von über 92% unserer Nutzer gerecht zu werden.
  5. Details unserer Preispläne - und wie Sie Zugang zu einem Rabatt von 50% erhalten können.
  6. Wie unsere neue Rank Tracker Service unterscheidet sich von anderen Diensten auf dem Markt.

Es gibt eine Menge zu decken, so lassen Sie uns beginnen.

1. Rank Tracker arbeitet derzeit und funktional in Market Samurai

Es ist wichtig zu betonen, dass die aktuelle Rank Tracker-Modul arbeitet derzeit und funktional.

Nachdem die Google ändern unsere erste Priorität war es, die Kernfunktionalität, so schnell wie möglich wieder herzustellen. Rasch, über einen Zeitraum von mehreren Tagen , die wir veröffentlichten Updates Funktionalität, um alle unsere Kernmodule restauriert.

Am wichtigsten ist, Rank Tracker arbeitet derzeit. Die große Mehrheit unserer Mitglieder zu überwachen weniger als 50 Stichworte und unserem Service sollte problemlos für diese Benutzer ausgeführt werden.

Wenn Sie die Kontrolle einer großen Anzahl von Schlüsselwörtern (100 +) Sie können aufgefordert werden, eine Captcha abzuschließen, weiterhin Zurückziehen Ranking Daten werden, aber man kann immer noch holen den vollen Satz von Keyword-Daten.

2. Welche Fortschritte wurden auf dem neuen Rank Tracker Service gemacht worden, und wann wird es einsatzbereit sein?

Seit Wiederherstellung der vollen Funktionalität Market Samurai haben wir unermüdlich daran gearbeitet, Ihnen die neue "Cloud" Version unserer Rank-Tracking-Service zu bringen.

Hier ist ein schnelles Update auf, wie wir:

  • Wir haben bereits erhebliche Fortschritte Aufbau des Back-End-Infrastruktur und Dienstleistungen, die neue Tracking-Service zu liefern Rang gemacht.
  • Wir haben mit mehr als einem Dutzend Rang gesprochen Tracking-Daten-Provider und ausgehandelt viel in Ihrem Namen an der Lage, die Anforderungen unserer Anwender-Basis zuverlässig bewältigen zu können - auf über 200 Millionen Ranking Kontrollen pro Monat, das ist eine erhebliche Belastung für viele der Anbieter, die wir gesprochen haben!
  • Wir haben eine einfach zu bedienende Benutzeroberfläche für schnelle und einfache Migration Ihrer bestehenden Rank Tracker Informationen in die Cloud und für die Verwaltung Ihrer Online-Kampagnen konzipiert.

Also wann wird das fertig sein, damit Sie verwenden?

Wir haben zwar erhebliche Fortschritte gemacht, so weit ist unsere gegenwärtige beste Schätzung, dass wir in der Lage, für eine große Beta-Test in der Zeit ca. 2-3 Wochen sein, mit einem öffentlichen Start ca. 2 Wochen nach, dass. Dadurch erhalten unsere Beta-Tester die Chance, ein paar Wochen Ranking Berichte durch, zu spülen, bevor wir irgendwelche Probleme machen es für jedermann verfügbar.

Ich weiß, dass dies länger, als wir ursprünglich angenommen ist, aber ich denke, Sie stimmen zu, dass es wichtiger ist, um sicherzustellen, dass die neue Version ist so zuverlässig und stabil wie möglich, und das geht noch ein paar Wochen, als wir ursprünglich geschätzt.

Bitte seien Sie versichert, dass dies unsere Priorität # 1, und jede verfügbare Ressource bei Noble Samurai arbeitet an der Sie den neuen Tracking-Service Rang so schnell wie möglich zu bringen.

Wieder einmal wird die bestehende Rank Tracker-Modul arbeitet und in der Lage sein, die Mehrheit der Rang Anforderungen unserer Nutzer zu dienen, bis wir in der Lage, Roll-out unseres neuen Service sind.

3. Also, was ist anders an dem neuen Rang Tracking Service?

Wenn Sie Rank Tracker verwendet habe, werden Sie schnell erkennen, ihre größte Nachteil - es ist langsam! Es ist ein Problem, dass die aktuelle Rank Tracker-Modul Aktien mit allen Desktop-Rang Überprüfung Software.

Wenn Sie ernsthaft über die Überprüfung Ihres Rankings sind, jede Woche feuern die Software haben Sie, klicken Sie auf die Schaltfläche "Update Rankings", und warten Sie dann bis zu einer halben Stunde oder mehr, bevor alle Ihre Rankings Daten aktualisiert! Und je mehr Keywords, die Sie verfolgen, desto langsamer wird es!

Und das ist für jeden Rank Tracker Datendatei, die Sie haben. Viele unserer Mitglieder haben mehrere Standorte oder Kunden, die sie benötigen, um die Rangliste für, und jeder von ihnen in einem anderen Projekt-Datei zu überprüfen. Wenn Sie 3 oder 4 Dateien haben, können den gesamten Prozess mehrere Stunden in Anspruch nehmen, das ist nicht ideal.

Die neue Tracking-Rang Service ist sehr unterschiedlich. Anstatt Ihre Keywords selbst zu überprüfen, wir werden die Keywords in Ihrem Namen automatisch überprüfen, und senden Sie eine E-Mail jede Woche, wenn Ihr Keyword-Rankings sind bereit.

Hier ist, wie es funktioniert:

  1. Zuerst laden Sie Ihre bestehenden Tracking-Dateien auf Rang Noble Samurai "Wolke" Server, wo Ihr Ranking Daten gespeichert werden.
  2. Dann wählen Sie die Keywords, die Sie auf einer wöchentlichen Basis überwachen möchten. Sie benennen auch, an welchem ​​Tag der Woche Sie möchten Ihr Ranking Checks aktualisiert.
  3. Einmal in der Woche wird unser "Wolke"-Server Ihres Rankings in Ihrem Namen zu überprüfen (Sie brauchen noch nicht einmal Ihren Computer eingeschaltet sein! Alles geschieht automatisch auf unserem Server).
  4. Wenn Ihre Rankings sind überprüft worden und Ihr Ranking Berichte abschließen, schicken wir Ihnen eine E-Mail Benachrichtigung, damit Sie wissen.
  5. Sie können dann Rank Tracker und Ihr Ranking Daten sofort anzuzeigen.

Weil wir alles tun, die schweres Heben von unserer "Wolke" Server, verbringen Sie weniger Zeit, die Ergebnisse wartet, und kann mehr Zeit damit verbringen, Interpretation Ihrer Daten!

4. Was sind die Details der FREE-Tracking Rang Plan für bestehende Market Samurai Eigentümer?

Unsere große Hoffnung war, dass wir in der Lage sein, um eine KOSTENLOSE Rang Tracking Plan für bestehende Besitzer von sowohl Market Samurai und Samurai Artikel bieten.

Wir haben die letzten Wochen verbrachte die Analyse der Nutzungsmuster von unseren aktuellen Kunden und auch aggressiv Verhandlungen mit Ranking Datenanbietern zu verstehen:

  1. Kostenlos Plan ist wirtschaftlich möglich ist; und
  2. Was für ein GRATIS Plan würde für unsere bestehenden Benutzer gehören.

Die gute Nachricht ist, dass wir in der Lage, eine große kostenlose Plan für alle aktuellen Besitzer unserer Produkte anzubieten.

In einer Analyse der Nutzungsdaten-Ranking im vergangenen Jahr aufgedeckt wir folgende Nutzungsmuster für unsere aktuellen Kunden:

92% Spur weniger als 50 Schlüsselwörter
7% Spur zwischen 51-500 Stichworte
1% Spur über 500 Stichworten

Unser Ziel war es, einen kostenlosen Plan, die dafür sorgen würde, dass so viele unserer Kunden wie möglich würde von den Rank Tracker Änderungen völlig unberührt ist.

Ich bin glücklich, zu verkünden, dass alle bestehenden Kunden von Market Samurai und Samurai Artikel werden zu einem kostenlosen 50-Schlüsselwörter Plan.

Das bedeutet, dass über 92% unserer Kunden werden die Vorteile der verbesserten Rang Tracking-Service zu erhalten (wo wir jede Woche automatisch nachschlagen Ihre Rankings für Sie), und wird nicht einen Cent dafür zu bezahlen!

Es gibt einige wichtige Dinge zu beachten:

1. Während der kostenlosen Plan wird kostenlos für Sie sein, ist es nicht frei, um uns - Wir werden zahlen Tausende von Dollar pro Monat, in Ihrem Namen, um diese Pläne zu zeichnen kostenlos. Wir haben die freeline auf einem Niveau, das die überwiegende Mehrheit der Nutzer (über 92%) erfüllen sollte, während der Festsetzung der Höhe der Geld, das wir brauchen, um jeden Monat für unsere Kunden auf ein nachhaltiges Niveau outlay eingestellt.

Seien Sie versichert, wird dies nicht bankrott uns, aber es ist wichtig, zu teilen, dass weil wir immer die Zeche für diese kostenlosen Konten, mussten wir die Grenze ziehen, und eine 50 Stichwort Plan schafft ein Gleichgewicht der Erfüllung der überwiegenden Mehrheit der Bedürfnisse des Benutzers sowie die Verwaltung unserer laufenden Kosten.

2. Dieses Angebot gilt nur für bestehende Market Samurai (und Artikel Samurai) Eigentümer, oder jemand, der Market Samurai vor Käufen verfügbar sein 30. April 31. Mai 2012 - Wie unsere bestehenden Kunden und Testnutzer sind diejenigen, die am meisten von den Änderungen betroffen sein werden, wird dieses Angebot nur zur Verfügung, an die bestehende Eigentümerbasis sein - alle, die eine Vollversion von Market Samurai oder Artikel Samurai hat sowie alle aktuellen Testnutzer, die auf die Vollversion, bevor Upgrades 30. April 31. Mai 2012.

3. Nach dem 30. April 31. Mai 2012, der freien Plan für neue Kunden von Market Samurai auf 10 Keywords pro Monat fallen - Da es eine erhebliche laufende Kosten bei der Bereitstellung dieser freien plant die 50 Stichwort kostenlosen Plan ist nur für bestehende Eigentümer (und alle, die zur Verfügung Upgrades auf die Vollversion vor 30. April 31. Mai 2012).

Mit fast 60.000 Kunden, können Sie beginnen zu verstehen, warum wir diesen kostenlosen Plan wird uns pro Monat kosten Tausende von Dollar.

Deshalb können wir dieses Angebot nur für bestehende Kunden zu machen. Zukünftigen Kunden auf eine 10 Stichwort / Monat Plan begrenzt werden.

4. Dieses kostenlose 50 Stichwort Plan entspricht BEZAHLT Pläne, die kosten $ 22,50 pro Monat - Wir haben eine gründliche Analyse des Wettbewerbs in der Rang Tracking-Service Raum getan. Die meisten Rang Tracking-Dienste nicht zu einem kostenlosen Plan überhaupt zu schaffen, und eine Mindesteinstiegspreis von $ 29 bis $ 49 pro Monat, nur um sich zu registrieren. Dies ist der Fall, der tatsächliche Wert, um Sie für eine vergleichbare 50 Stichwort Plan ist irgendwo zwischen $ 5 bis $ 22,50 pro Monat.

Nur bestehende Kunden, und denen, die die Vollversion von Market Samurai kaufen, bevor 30. April Einer Auflösung von bis zu $ ​​22,50 pro Monat von Keyword-Ranking Checks, GRATIS - 31. Mai 2012 zu diesem kostenlosen 50 Stichwort Plan berechtigt.

5. Einzelheiten zu unseren Preispläne

Unser Ranking Nutzungsdaten-Analyse zeigt, dass unsere 50 Stichwort Plan wird mehr als ausreichend für mehr als 92% unserer Kunden.

Wenn Sie einer von denen, die in der 8% der Nutzer, die mehr als 50 Stichworte zu verfolgen sind sind, dann wollen wir aber sicherstellen, dass wir auch zu schauen, nachdem Sie.

Bevor ich zeigen, was die Preisgestaltung Pläne sind, ist es wichtig, den Wettbewerb zu überprüfen und sehen, was die günstigsten verfügbaren Optionen sind auf dem Markt, um mehr als 50 Keywords auf einer wöchentlichen Basis zu verfolgen:

Wettbewerber

Ein

B

C

D

50 + günstigste Stichwort Plan

49 $ / Monat

24 $ / Monat

19 $ / Monat

99 $ / Monat

250

100

100

1000

Preis / Schlagwort

$ 0,20

0,24 $

0,19 $

0,10 $

Also, wenn Sie brauchen, um mehr als 50 Stichworte zu verfolgen beginnt dann die günstigste Plan von konkurrierenden Dienstleistungen bei $ 19 / Monat und Sie zahlen so viel wie $ 99 / Monat!

Während dies wie viel scheinen, gibt es gute Gründe für den Preis. Es gibt harte Kosten zur Bereitstellung einer Infrastruktur, um eine große Anzahl von Schlüsselwörtern zu überprüfen.

Dabei unserer Analyse und Preismodell haben wir zwei entscheidende Vorteile gegenüber der Konkurrenz:

  • Unternehmen mit tiefen Taschen Agenturen oft laden Hunderte oder Tausende von Dollar, um ihre eigenen Kunden jeden Monat, und kann es sich erlauben, erhebliche Beträge zu zahlen jeden Monat, um ihre Keyword-Rankings für sie aktualisiert werden - die meisten Wettbewerber bei Preis SEO-Agenturen ausgerichtet..

    Agenturen Verwaltung mehrerer Kunden - benötigen, um Hunderte oder Tausende von Keywords jeden Monat zu verfolgen. Die Preisstruktur der derzeit auf dem Markt angebotenen Pläne wird dieser Notwendigkeit. Leider bringt es diese außerhalb der Reichweite von vielen kleinen Online-Unternehmer, insbesondere, wenn sie müssen nur ein paar hundert Stichworte zu verfolgen.
  • Die meisten unserer Wettbewerber dienen eine relativ kleine Kundenbasis von SEO-Agenturen - und so sind nicht in der Lage, ihre Infrastrukturkosten über Zehntausende von Nutzern zu verbreiten, wie wir sind.

Wir wissen, wer unsere Kunden sind, und sie sind sehr verschieden von den SEO-Agenturen sind! Während wir haben einige Agenturen und SEO-Berater mit unserer Software sind die meisten unserer Nutzer kleinen Online-Unternehmer, die nicht über Hunderte von Dollar pro Monat, um auf die Verfolgung ihre Rankings zu verbringen.

Es ist eine echte, greifbare Fest Kosten für die Bereitstellung großer Mengen von Keyword-Rankings. Es gibt eine signifikante Infrastruktur, die aufgebaut werden, um nachschlagen Millionen von Keywords pro Monat benötigt. Bereitstellung wöchentliche Rankings bedeutet vier Kontrollen pro Monat pro Keyword. Bereitstellung täglichen Rankings beinhaltet sieben Mal so viele Schlüsselwort-Suchvorgänge, die direkt in das Siebenfache der Kosten niederschlägt. Dienste, die bieten täglich Rankings sind deutlich teurer pro Keyword zu verfolgen - und das zu Recht!

Im Interesse der Wahrung Keyword-Rankings, wie zugänglich und erschwinglich wie möglich für unsere Kunden, haben wir entschieden, zunächst stellen Ihnen nur die wöchentliche Ranking-Berichte. Wenn es genügend Nachfrage können wir täglich Rankings einführen, aber diese Pläne natürlich sehr viel teurer zu bieten.

6. Was ist das Besondere an unserem Rank Tracker Service? Wie sieht es mit der Konkurrenz zu vergleichen?

Wenn Sie den Rank Tracker-Modul nicht wirklich verwendet haben, oder noch nicht für eine Weile habe es überprüft, hier ist eine kurze Zusammenfassung über einige seiner einzigartigen Features jenseits des Seins nur ein Viertel des Preises der Konkurrenz.

Sie sagen, dass "Feedback ist das Frühstück der Champions", und von Anfang Rank Tracker wurde entwickelt, um eine schnelle Rückmeldung über die "Auswirkungen" des SEO Link-Building-Arbeit und SEO-Strategie zu schaffen.

  1. Rank Tracker prüft nicht nur Ihr Ranking in den 3 großen Suchmaschinen, sondern berichtet auch, die Anzahl der Links, die auf jeder Ihrer Seiten-Ranking zeigt sich - in der Regel als Link-Building-Arbeit steigt, werden Sie eine Zunahme in der Zahl zu sehen von Links, durch eine Erhöhung Ihres Rankings gefolgt. Es ist ein Frühindikator, um Platzierungen und nur edle Samurai Rank Tracker bietet diese Funktion. (SEO-Profis lieben diese Funktion - da es Beweise für all die harte Link-Building-Arbeit, die Sie getan haben)
  2. Rank Tracker zeigt Ihnen die Rangliste für jede einzelne Webseite, die Sie Kontrolle - Es ist üblich in der modernen SEO mehrere Domänen verwenden, um Keywords Rang. Die meisten anderen Rang Tracking-Dienste können nur eine Domäne zu verfolgen, und nur sagt Ihnen der ranghöchste Sie zu halten. Wir ermöglichen Ihnen, eine beliebige Anzahl von Domains, sowie spezielle URLs wie YouTube-Videos zu verfolgen. Wir zeigen Ihnen alle Platzierungen halten Sie in den Top-100-Ergebnisse, nicht nur die höchste.
  3. Rank Tracker können Sie unbegrenzte Domains für einen einzigen Stichwort verfolgen - Die meisten anderen Rang-Tracking-Lösungen auf dem Markt ihre Kunden basierend auf einem Konzept namens "Keyword-Paare" zu laden. Wenn Sie Ihre Keyword-Rankings auf ein Keyword für 5 verschiedene Domains verfolgen möchten, müssten Sie dieses Schlüsselwort in 5 mal geben, essen in Ihre monatliche Quote. In Rank Tracker wird, dass da nur ein einziges Stichwort zählen - so wird Ihr Stichwort Quote geht viel weiter.
  4. Rank Tracker ermöglicht es Ihnen, die Rangliste auf Web-2.0-Seiten zu verfolgen (wie YouTube und Squidoo), dass Sie die Kontrolle, aber nicht besitzen! - Viele Lösungen auf dem Markt beschränken Sie nur Tracking-Seiten auf einem einzigen Domäne oder zwingen, jede Web 2.0-Website als eine weitere "Stichwort Paar" zu verfolgen, essen in Ihre begrenzt Stichwort Quote. Wie Sie wissen, YouTube und Web-2.0-Sites enthalten oft einen wichtigen Bestandteil moderner SEO. Nur Rank Tracker ermöglicht es Ihnen, so viele Web-2.0-Web-Seiten, wie Sie möchten - während nur mit einen einzigen Stichwort Ihrer wöchentlichen Quote.
  5. Rank Tracker unterstützt das gesamte Spektrum der Suchmaschinen-Sprache und Länderkombinationen - Im Gespräch mit vielen Rang Tracking-Daten-Anbieter erkannt, dass wir nur sehr wenige unterstützen die vollständige Palette von Sprache und Land-Kombinationen in Google zur Verfügung und die großen Suchmaschinen. Market Samurai ist sehr populär geworden für Nicht-US-nicht-englischsprachigen Kunden, denn wir haben sehr hart gearbeitet, um unterstützt von rechts nach links Sprachen wie Hebräisch und "Unicode" Sprachen wie Japanisch und Chinesisch. Der Datenanbieter haben wir uns entschieden haben, ist einer der wenigen, die in der Lage, das gesamte Spektrum der Sprache / Land-Kombinationen zu schaffen.
  6. Rank Tracker verwaltet die Fragen von Google "Lokalisierung" und "Personalisierung" - Google oft serviert verschiedene Ranking-Seiten auf, wo Sie sich befinden sind. Google personalisiert auch die Suchergebnisse auf der Basis der Websites, die Sie häufig besuchen. Diese "Lokalisierung" und "Personalisierung" Verhalten kann es sehr schwierig, eine objektive Reihe von allgemeinen Suchergebnissen als Benchmark für Ihre SEO-Aktivitäten zu erhalten.

    Als Ergebnis sieht man oft sehr unterschiedliche Ergebnisse der Suche mit Google von Ihrer eigenen Web-Browser als das, was ein Rang-Tracking-Service-Berichte. Das Ranking Daten Anbieter sind wir gewählt haben, hat eine ausgezeichnete Arbeit der Entfernung solcher Vorurteile aus den Ergebnissen.

Zusammenfassung

Puh! Das ist eine Menge an Informationen zu verdauen! Hier ist eine kurze Wiederholung, wenn Sie wenig Zeit haben:

  1. Wenn Sie eine bestehende Market Samurai (Samurai oder Artikel) Kunde haben Sie Zugriff auf einen kostenlosen 50 Stichwort Rank Tracker Plan zu erhalten -, die unsere Nutzungsdaten Shows werden für mehr als 92% unserer Kunden zu sein.
  2. Wenn Sie Teil der Handvoll Kunden, die mehr als 50 Stichworte verfolgen müssen sind, werden Sie in der Lage, Zugang zu speziellen Pläne, die weniger als ein Viertel des Preises für die meisten unserer Konkurrenz sind zu bekommen.
  3. Wir arbeiten wirklich hart, um den neuen Rang Tracking-Service für Sie so schnell wie möglich raus. Wir hoffen, eine Version an Beta-Tests in den nächsten zwei bis drei Wochen. Wir werden eine E-Mail mit den Details, wie man bis zur Beta zu unterzeichnen, wenn es fertig zu senden.

Ein großes Dankeschön noch einmal an die unglaubliche Unterstützung und Ermutigung, die wir von unseren Kunden erhalten habe!

  1. I'm happy to have a paid keyword plan (Similar i guess to using Raven Tools). MS is our #1 research tool and it's nicer to have everything in the one place.

    For an agency, where we may want to track clients keywords and provide reporting, do you intend to provide white label reporting for agencies?

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your question. In future versions we're going to add in PDF email reports on a campaign basis, and for higher keyword plans the ability to whitelabel the PDF reports and email them directly to your clients.

    Warm Regards,

    Eugene

  2. Hey Eugene,

    Thanks for the very thorough and detailed follow up.

    I've often said, in this blog no less, than Market Samurai should be a paid product, and finally it looks like you are getting your just desserts from all your efforts.

    One quick question: In your post, you didn't mention who is your secret sauce data provider?

    Any particular reason? Are you ever going to reveal the name? I would like to be able to do my own diligence and know who this trusted source is for comparison sake.

    Either way, I hate what Google has done to you guys and others in your shoes, but your product is fantastic and I am extremely happy to see you'll be in business for a long time to come.

    Hallo Chris,

    Thanks for your question.

    We've negotiated an agreement with Authority Labs which also power tools such as the excellent Raven Tools.

    We spoke to over a dozen data providers all over the world.

    We evaluated them based on a combination of reliability, quality, internal systems to deal with changes, how they deal with localization, and their ability to scale to support the volume of ranking checks that our customers need.

    Suffice to say that we didn't necessarily go with the cheapest provider.

    There were actually about 18 or so criteria points that we used, but it all boils down the points I've mentioned above.

    Thanks for your support and encouragement.

    It hasn't been easy these last few weeks! The awesome support from customers such as yourself has really helped us to push through!

    Warm Regards,

    Eugene

  3. hi Eugene,

    thanks for the detailed update but what happens to the existing local “slow” ranking check?
    can we still continue using it, or is there only the cloud version in future?

    Dank

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for your question.

    With the new service we will not be supporting the existing functionality to use your own computer (or proxies) to look up rankings (ie. the “slow” ranking checks).

    The reason is, that it costs a lot of time and money to keep up to date with the constant Google changes (format changes, universal changes, etc).

    One of the core benefits with going to a third party data provider is that we can spend less time chasing Google, and put the savings towards subsidising both free users and keeping the special paid plans as affordable as possible.

    Thus, we won't be supporting the old system once the new service has been launched.

    I hope that makes sense.

  4. I am an existing Market Samurai customer. I fall in the 8% category of customers who use more 50 keywords for checking the rankings.

    I would like to get clarity on a couple of things:

    1. Will it be possible to Upgrade / Downgrade the Rank Tracker Plan as per our needs?

    2. Will there any limites to the number of domains that would be allowed to be added under the Plan Quota?

    Kindly advise.

    2. No. You can add as many domains and URLs as you like.

    Hi Eugene,

    Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort.

    I have a feature request.

    I saw this feature in another ranking software and I would love MS to have this feature.

    You give the domain name as input to the system and it digs out all keywords (long tail & short tail) that rank for that domain including all inner pages.

    To keep it manageable, you can limit the results returned to, say, all the keywords ranking at the Top 20 or Top 50.

    Along with the ranking, it also returns the Exact Search Volume per month and the competition.

    This funtionality would help in learning about all the keywords that a domain is ranking for and about which we currently may not be aware.

    It will also help in fine tuning the website marketing efforts to all those keywords which have the potential to get lot of traffic due to high search volume / low competition and which we are already ranking, say, at the top 20 and which has the potential to reach the top.

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hallo Brian,

    We definitely shopped around (we spoke to over 12 different data providers) and used the size of our customer base and volume to negotiate the best deal possible :-)

    We also didn't take the lowest price either. Quality and reliability and scalability were ultimately more important than just going with the lowest price per ranking check.

    Definitely give the 50 free keyword plan a try and see how it works out for you. We've done a pretty thorough review of the competition, and have plans for some more features once we've got the first version into your hands.

    I'd love to hear back from you Brian on how we measure up and if you have any ideas about how we can improve the service.

  6. Can you clarify the keyword limitation? So Market Samurai will keep track of the TOTAL keywords that I have across multiple projects? What happens if, let's say, I have 25 keywords in project A and 25 keywords in project B today (assuming I use the free Rank Tracker), and later project A is abandoned and I add more keywords in project B. How will Market Samurai track that?

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Battra,

    Thanks for your question.

    The keyword quota is across all projects. You create a Rank Tracker “campaign” which basically represents the keywords associated in a Samurai Project file.

    In the example you mentioned, if you abandon project A, you would “pause” the campaign (so you can retain the historical data), and then those 25 keywords would be free to repurpose in other projects.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Danke,

    Eugene

    Battra replied:

    Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the clarification. Klingt gut! One more question, can I pause individual keyword or it must be at campaign level?

    I'm glad that you consider providing free level, that helps a lot! So thank you to all MS team!

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Battra,

    Yes, you can pause both individual keywords and keywords (think Google Adwords).

    Thanks for your support.

  7. Thanks for this comprehensive update – and for the absolutely fair way you have worked out the plans.

    Will there still be an option to check keywords the current way – ie set a time lapse between searches and run the search on our own computers?

    Now that I have got used to doing this and just leave the rank tracker search running whilst I am away from the computer, I actually find it works quite well and am pretty happy with this method.

    I know that I have to wait a while for this to run, but the paid method would only run the reports once a week – at least with the 'desktop' way, I have the opportunity of checking a single keyword or a small group of words as and when I want to.

    Also, is the 50 free keywords incorporated in the pricing plan or is this also available to paid members (ie will the user of the paid plan for 200 keywords get 200 or 200 plus the 50 free ones)?

    Finally, a big thank you for the way you have kept us informed throughout the process, it has made a big difference!

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Alison,

    Unfortunately we won't be supporting the existing way of checking ranks. The main reason is that there's a significant cost in keeping up with Google's SERP format changes. Part of the benefit of using a third-party provider is that's part of what we pay them to do, to stay on top of the constant changes, as well as to provide the significant infrastructure to do searches.

    We opted instead to put the effort that we were expending in this area towards higher free keyword plans.

    In terms of being able to get a quick report back, we're currently working on a system where the first set of keywords (up to your quota amount) will be returned back within one to two minutes.

    This should give you the best of both worlds – automated weekly querying, plus being able to pull back the first results really quickly (and much more quickly than the current system).

    At the moment the 50 free keyword plan is not on top of the paid plan. So a 200 keywords plan will get 200 keywords, not 250. The 50 keyword plan may become a standalone paid plan in the future (ie. you're essentially getting a paid 50 keyword plan for free).

    Hope that makes sense!

    Thanks for your question, and thanks for your support Alison!

    Cheers,

    Eugene

    Not being able to check the stats when ever I want is disappointing.

    Like Allison I only do a few keywords at a time. Usually just 3-5.

    I usually check it every other day.

  8. I agree with Alison Graham there. I like the desktop Rank Tracker module, it is just so good to sit at the cockpit and let the Samurai do the job!

    Will this still work? Or how will the new feature look? Will it be in-built into the desktop software, instead of just receiving an email?

    Anyway, thanks for the great job you're doing and for keeping the plans affordable.

    Thus, we won't be supporting the old system once the new service has been launched.

    To give you an idea of how it will work, initially we'll send you an email to let you know that your rankings have been updated. You then fire up the Rank Tracker module in either Market Samurai and Article Samurai and then view all your rankings as normal.

    In the future we will also have the option of sending PDF email reports of rankings IN ADDITION TO being able to open up the ranking reports within the app.

    Hope that makes sense.

    there should be something done about this cause I'm sure the vast majority of your users do as Allison, Emanuelle, and myself do. Just check a few keywords at a time when we want.

    I usually check this every other day. I wouldn't want to wait a whole week just to get stats.

    Have you guys thought about this at all?

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Josue,

    I understand your concern.

    We've though very deeply about these kinds of issues when creating our product offering. We've spent many days analysing our usage data to see how people are using our exiting service.

    Unfortunately, the numbers show that people who check their rankings more than once a week are a very small percentage of our customer base.

    However, If there's enough demand from our customers we may offer a daily service. But, as this will involve 7 times the amount of ranking checks, these plans will be much more expensive. But if the demand is there at this higher price point we may look at this.

    The other feature that may work for you is our “instant updates”. When you first add a keyword into the system to be tracked we'll pull back the rankings within 1-2 minutes. Subsequent checks will then occur weekly.

    So, if you are just doing some quick casual checks of some new keywords, then this feature might be able to get you what you want.

    I understand if this may be frustrating to here. Our initial focus will be in meeting the needs of the vast majority of our users where a weekly plan and an initial instant update feature will be suitable for the majority of use cases.

    Thanks for your feedback, however, I will take your comments onboard.

    Warm Regards,

    Eugene

  9. Also have a question about keyword limitation. Is the 50 keword limit a max for all my projects I have listed?

    Dank

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hallo Jim,

    Thanks for your question.

    The 50 keyword limit in the FREE plan is across all the projects that you wish to track.

    If you had 3 existing Project files, you'll upload these into 3 distinct Rank Tracker “cloud” campaigns. The 50 quota will be across all the keywords in all your campaigns.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Yep, thanks. Then I need to start revising my projects keywords prior to April. Correct?

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hallo Jim,

    You can choose your 50 keywords later, you don't need to prune them down now.

    When you finish importing your projects, by default, none of the keywords will be tracked. You'll then select which subset of keywords you wish to track.

    You can then move these keywords to another paused project (so you retain any past history), or you can delete them if you don't want them cluttering up your campaigns.

    We'll have some training videos closer to the release date that will walk you through the process in detail.

    Cheers,

  10. My question is about country specific.

    I have clients all over the world, and affiliate campaigns that I wish to rank highly for in certail countries.

    I have noticed, and this is not a limitation to your software it is just one of those things, that for keyword research and ranking checks I have to use either my own UK IP or country specific IP's to get the correct results for the countries I am trying to rank. Just using google.com or google.com.au isn't enough for true results.

    Therefore, does your provider use country specific IP addresses to ensure that the data is correct? ie If they are in the states and our projects show we are working on google.co.uk they need to use a UK ip not their US ip.

    Also, I am right in thinking that at the oldest point, the rank checking results will be 1 week old?

    Dank

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hallo Brian,

    Thanks for your question.

    Localization is a very tricky issue.

    The ideal scenario would be to have IP addresses in every region in the world, which is obviously not practical to do.

    Our data provider has figured out a clever way to regional data that is currently working very well. While I can't reveal exactly how they do this, it does seem to produce accurate results.

    Please give the new Rank Tracker service a try when it's released and let me know what you find.

    To answer your second question, yes, at the oldest point your ranking checks would be a week old.

    You can choose what day of the week we do these checks, however, and the first time you add keywords we'll fetch the first lot within a few minutes.

    I hope that answers your question.

    Warm Regards,

    Vince replied:

    They probably have an API into the Google Adsense preview tool?

  11. The last point I think is the most important – that localization thing. It is a pain to log out of google, yahoo, and bing accounts every time to do a manual search. Even then, you know you are giving up IP information and location info. So you change your search location and still aren't confident that you have hidden your identity sufficiently to check your results. I'm glad that the new rank tracker cloud version makes us completely anonymous.

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Dr. Michael,

    This is something that we grilled our potential data providers about in some detail.

    The provider we use goes to great lengths to try to remove any personalization and localization effects. They've even enable us to show the actual page from Google that they retrieved so that you can see what they saw to verify the correctness of the results. We'll be integrating that into Rank Tracker shortly after launch so that you can have the confidence of trusting the results.

    It's easy enough to remove personalization in Google (you can add &pws=0 to the end of your query string), but the localization issue is actually a very tricky problem to solve due to the IP address issue, and it's fair to say that many services out there don't do a great job in this regard. I can't reveal how they're doing it (it's proprietary knowledge), only that over half the data providers what we spoke to didn't handle personalisation as well as we'd like.

    Please give it a try when we release the beta program and let us know what you think.

    Cheers,

    Eugene

    Just want to say a big thank you for looking to resolve this issue quickly. What some people don't realize is that things are changing with SEO and “BIG” changes with Google and data is getting harder to provide (Unless you have huge pockets)

    You always seem to amaze me how you pull this off. I use Market Samurai and Article Samurai for our clients and without it I would be lost lol.

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for sharing your concern.

    Keeping up with Google's constant changes is a challenge to us and the industry as a whole.

    Issues such as localization, personalization, universal search results that change on a seemingly daily basis make this a difficult problem to solve.

    The partner that we have chosen specializes only on providing this data. We've talked to them in length about the processes for staying on top of these changes, and dealing with Google's localization and personalization biases. We'll also be able to get from them the actual snapshot of the Google results page so you can verify that the data is correct.

    These guys power some of the largest ranking solution providers on the web, and we're confident they will do a better job than us as it's their sole focus and systems.

    At this stage the answer is yes, unfortunately. If there's enough demand we may offer this in the future, but as I've outline in the post, the costs would need to be approximately 7 times higher.

    What we will have from day one, is instant updates for the first time you enter a keyword. Add a keyword, wait one or two minutes, and you'll see your rankings on that day – and then get weekly updates from then on.

    This may be a little of topic but would appreciate a response. Do you have any plans to bring back the PR analysis function which was once provided?

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Daniel,

    The SEO world is a little worried about PR.

    1. PR is only updated once every 3 or 4 months or so.
    2. Google has dropped support for the Google Toolbar in Firefox, and doesn't have support in Chrome. The only place it exists is in IE, and it's not switched on by default anymore. We believe it will be phased out shortly.
    3. PR doesn't seem to make a difference – most top SEOs are on record for saying that it doesn't really matter. Look at the SERPs and you'll find plenty of cases where a low PR site is ranking above much stronger competition.

    This leads us to believe that PR is not long for this world.

    The good news, is that we're working on a great alternative that will be updated DAILY, and will be guaranteed to be around in the long-term. I can't say anything about it at this stage, but we believe this to be a better solution in the long-term.

    This keyword limitation has only to do with Rank Tracker feature, correct? It will have no impact on the number of keywords returned at keyword research step. Also is there still risk in being blocked by Google depending on number of queries or it doesn't apply anymore?

    The limitation is SOLELY related to the number of keywords tracked in Rank Tracker at any one time.

    When we release the new Rank Tracker service, we will be discontinuing the old one. This new Rank Tracker will be integrated into Market Samurai, just like the current one is. There will be some changes to the interface, but it will not be a stand-alone product.

    The new Rank Tracker service will take over all ranking checks that you can currently do through Market Samurai.

    Unfortunately, there is no ability to check rankings daily with the new service. To do this would be 7x the cost – if there is sufficient demand at this increased price point, however, we will look into making this option available for users.

    If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to send an email to support@noblesamurai.com and we'll do our best to answer.

  41. Hey Eugene and the team

    Just want to say a big thank you for looking to resolve this issue quickly. What some people don't realize is that things are changing with SEO and “BIG” changes with Google and data is getting harder to provide (Unless you have huge pockets)

    You always seem to amaze me how you pull this off. I use Market Samurai and Article Samurai for our clients and without it I would be lost lol.

    The monthly cost is beyond brilliant, for the data that we get and the time we save I am more than happy.

    Customer for life

    Danny.

  42. Thank you very much for being upfront and very very honest with us. It's the Ozzie way and the right way to do business. I am a very happy customer and really appreciate what you guys have done so far from the very beginning. Keep it up and have a great day.

  43. Excellent work as always.

    Question: Will the special existing customer pricing be available in the future? That is, if I decide to stick with the 50 free keywords for now, or go with the 100 keywords option but end up in 6 months needing to track 500 keywords – will that special pricing still be available?

    danke,

  46. This is outstanding Eugene!

    You guys did it again : D I'm very happy with the paid plans for “veteran” users you detailed. A big plus point in comparison to other rank tracking services out there. Hope we can see the new MS Rank Tracker soon.

    Alles Gute!

  47. Meinetwegen. I guess if you're getting up to the level of wanting to track a few hundred keywords you can afford a small amount. But, taking the “blue belt” after April 30 will be $600 a year for some people.

    That add's up. Maybe you should provide the software itself at no charge for people who track large amounts of keywords?

    Just a suggestion.

  48. Looks great, was using another provider which we actually just canned and were about to use another service so will wait and see how this goes.

    Hi Greg,

    Vielen Dank für Ihren Kommentar.

    We're initially only going with weekly rankings, and may offer daily ranking updates in the future. It's what the majority of Ranking services provide, and from our data analysis it's what most of our customers do (even internally we don't check more than once a week).

    However, daily rankings are substantially more expensive to provide (7 times more). I'd like to get your feedback, if the retail prices were 7 times the cost for daily updates would this still represent good value for you?

    We've had a few people ask us about this now, I'd like to get some feedback on whether a 7 fold price increase would be worth it to provide the more frequent ranking updates.

    Thanks for your questions though!

    Warm Regards,

    Hi Tzvi,

    Thanks for your questions.

    In a future version of the service we will add the ability to email PDF reports automatically for each campaign that you create. For higher plans, we may also add the ability to white-label the reports.

    In terms of your other question, unfortunately the system we're building and the user-interface we've designed won't easily be able to move to fortnightly checking. What you could do is alternatively pause each campaign after each week so that you effectively double the number of keywords you are checking for each price-point.

  55. Thanks for adding the ability to track ranking free for existing user.

    However I have to admit I seldom use rank tracking in market samurai. I find it troublesome to track a long list of keywords. I would prefer feature as in semrush which I can just enter the my url and I got all the keywords which my site is currently rank in google.

    If the data provider are able to provide such feature that would be really useful.

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Foo,

    Thanks for your question.

    We're not planning on supporting the SEMRush API to “reverse engineer” rankings based on your domain in the near feature.

    But by being able to enter in some keywords and let us do the work it will certainly make the process a lot faster and easier. It's quite slow to do that now, and the new service will make this less of a chore.

    Also, when you initially add in keywords you'll be able to get your initial rankings back in a few minutes, and then get weekly ranking reports each week.

    We've talked internally about interfacing with your Google Analytics account (and possibly SEMRush) to initially suggest keywords for you to track, but this won't be there day one.

    I am upset. Why should a paid user like me be subsidizing a free user?

    If I use my own proxies, would I be penalized as well? If yes, WHY?

    I have several clients which I do reports for, and this charging will be telling me to switch over to other products.

    I use Market Samurai primarily for rank tracking, and now it is going to lose its charm, for me at least.

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Eddie,

    I'm very sorry that you're upset.

    Our options were either to charge everyone or see if we can bear the cost of supporting a free offering.

    While you might see it as the paid users subsidising the free users – it's more of a case that paid users at our retail pricing (after April 30th) will subsidise both the 50 keyword free plans, and also the discounted paid plans. This might take a while for this to occur, and we will bear the cost in the meantime until the service breaks even.

    With the new service we will not be supporting the existing functionality to use your own computer (or proxies) to look up rankings. It costs a lot of time and money to keep up to date with the constant Google changes (format changes, universal changes, etc). One of the core benefits with going to a third party data provider is that we can spend less time chasing Google, and put the savings towards subsidising both free users and the special paid plans such as yourself.

    Thus, we won't be supporting the old system once the new service has been launched.

    You may wish to try a service like SEO Power Suite which has support for proxies, but be aware that they also have a monthly search engine update fee of up to $20 a month that kicks in after a few months.

    I'm sorry to let you down, we've tried our very best to try look after everyone, and to minimize the costs for everyone effected by these changes.

    At the very least, opt-in for the 50 keyword free plan before 30th April to make sure you lock in your higher quota in case you decide to give Rank Tracker a try again in the future.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

    Eugene

  58. Any chance that you guys will offer a paid version of the rank tracker that allows for daily rank tracking?

    I would be willing to pay for such an option as once a week tracking isn't going to cut it for those who work in the SEO field every day.

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Rich,

    Thanks for your question.

    We are considering it in the future if there's enough demand. As noted in my post above, as there are 7 times as many ranking checks for a daily service, the price points would have to be increased in proportion to pay for the increased usage. Would this level of pricing still work for you?

    What we are implementing is the facility to return your first set of results within a few minutes of adding new keywords. Thus you can get initial rankings quickly, and then have your weekly updates come through each week.

    Hi eugene

    IM hopeing you will see and respond to this point.

    I see a number of people repeating this question and i think your in avoidance mode. (I say that kindly)

    As an SEO supplier if a client contacts me and says “hows my serps going” and i say Oh well its to expensive to tell you so can you wait 5 days? i think the answer would be No.

    Especially as every other online cloud based service I've seen and use does this!!

    For clarity I currently use or trial
    sescout.com
    serpfox
    positionly

    Now sescout is the best and your going to be much much cheaper so im not knocking you.

    Why do i need daily checking other than for client response?

    One new campaigns whilst i dont care what hapens day to day it can be instructive to see a gradual movement insers (as seen on daily checks rather than say “falling off a cliff” with weekly checks.

    Once a sites establsh weekly is fine.

    So i would like to see an add-on option pack to say track 10, 20 or 50 keywords daily. Its going to be a lot more but thats fine.

    By limiting the keyword checks to justthe current targets we have a balance?

    Hello Eugene,

    Thank you for your quick response. I would be willing to pay 7 times the current pricing structure that you have quoted for reliable daily tracking, though I probably fall into the minority.

    Anyway thank you for your updates and your hard work! I love market samurai and wish you guys the best!

  59. Hi Eugene,

    Rank Tranker in MS is really killing my spirit :(
    I am a loyal fan of Market Samurai for years and it is really a pain not to be able to utilize MS to it's full potential in the past few weeks.

    I am just wondering why isn't market samurai able to do what SEO PowerSuite is capable of in terms of fetching ranking data? ( http://www.link-assistant.com/rank-tracker/ )

    That software did quite a nice job for me and provides both localized and global results which i need for some of my clients in local niches and some sites that global in nature

    I have switched over to them for the past weeks to check my ranking and it seems that there are quite ok from my limited experience of using it.

    Hallo Johnson,

    Es tut uns leid zu hören, dass du ein wenig enttäuscht bist.

    SEO Powersuite ist ein gutes Produkt. Seien Sie sich bewusst, dass es nicht ein Festpreis Produkt als Werbebrief könnte darauf hindeuten können. Sie haben eine monatliche Gebühr zwischen Update überall von $ 5 - $ 20, die nach ca. 6 Monate Ich denke, in tritt.

    SEO Powersuite löst das Problem durch Abstand heraus ihre Fragen über einen langen Zeitraum unter einer Reihe von anderen Techniken.

    Das ist momentan das, was wir haben, umgesetzt (die Verzögerung von 30 Sekunden), aber es ist nicht eine große Benutzerfreundlichkeit wegen der langen Ranking Aktualisierungszeiten.

    Wir glauben, es ist eine bessere Erfahrung, wenn wir den Rang Kontrollen auf unserer Seite zu behandeln. Ratenbegrenzung im Google betrifft nicht nur Sie, sondern jemand anderes Sie Ihre Internet-Verbindung. So ist es nicht wirklich geeignet in vielen Fällen. Dies eröffnet auch die Möglichkeit, für uns in der Zukunft sowie die Ihr Ranking Berichte prüfen können, und möglicherweise auch Push-Benachrichtigungen erhalten, wenn die Berichte fertig sind, oder Sie haben einen großen Tropfen in Ihre Rankings erhalten haben ausrollen mobilen Apps. Eine rein Desktop-Modell beschränkt diese etwas.

    Die aktuellen Pläne für Rank Tracker zählen so dass Sie Ihre Region und Sprache für jede Kampagne festlegen. Derzeit nicht unterstützen wir den Gegenwert von "nur Ergebnisse zeigen in Australien", aber wir unterstützen in der Lage, die Suche mit Google Australien. Das ist nicht zu sagen, dass wir nicht unterstützen würde es in der Zukunft jedoch.

    Was ich wirklich gerne hinzufügen, ist die Fähigkeit, spezifische einer Stadt wie "New York" und die Ergebnisse nur dieser Stadt. Als lokale SEO ist wichtiger in diesen Tagen für die lokale Wirtschaft, das wäre eine tolle Funktion zu haben. Unsere Datenanbieter unterstützt derzeit nicht, aber es wäre leicht für sie, in der Zukunft hinzuzufügen.

    Hi Eugene and team,

    Well handled as always, I have a lot of respect for how you continue to run your company. While all this was going down, I tried checking 10 keywords in Rank Tracker. I rec'd some kind of notice/warning from Google that I had too many queries, and the rank data even for this small group was way off. However, I wasn't ever really clear about how the Personalization and Localization works in Google until your posts above. Would this account for my Rank Tracker data being so off?

    Also, with regard to backlinks, I've heard from other experts that there is no reliable source for backlinks. They said Majestic SEO is the best, but even it can be way off. They did say that for Competition analysis while the actual numbers of backlinks aren't accurate, the relative distances between the numbers hold up as a gauge (meaning if they a competitor has 10x's the links you do, that is pretty accurate even if the actual numbers aren't).

    Would love to get your input on the above – esp. the first until this new transition gets sorted.

    Thanks again for the great product and customer support,
    Chris

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hallo Chris,

    Thanks for your questions. Depending on your connection you can get rate limited by Google.

    As for the accuracy of the data, I'm not aware of any current Rank Tracker accuracy issues. The problem is most likely to be localization / personalization. To check, click the little green arrow next to the Ranking number to see what query we used to pull back these results. There can still be localization issues, but at least personalization should be taken out of the equation. If you keep having issues even after entering the captcha then a short-term work around would be to get access to a proxy server, and plug it into the settings area in Market Samurai to overcome the rate limiting issue. You might want to check out someone like Trusted Proxies and sign up for a trial and see if that fixes the problem. If not, please feel free to contact our help desk who'll be more than happy to help you through any issues that you might be experiencing.

    In any case, staying on top of changing Google result page formats, and reliably dealing with personalization/localization issues is an ongoing challenge. One of the side benefits of going with the data provider we've chosen is that because it's their sole business, they stay on top of these changes as soon as they occur. So you should see more reliable results with the new Rank Tracker service as well.

    It's true what you say about back links. Majestic SEO is the best, but they often don't return data for low authority sites (less than 30 links). Unfortunately there's no easy way around this aside from breaking into Google's data centers and accessing their data.

    It's important that when using Majestic, that you use the “Fresh Index”, and not the historical index for reporting back link numbers. The Historical index shows every single link that has every linked to your site. So if someone linked to you in 2001, that will still show up as link, even if the original link was removed.

    If you're monitoring your own site and have added Google Webmaster Tools, then you may be able to get some additional data points from there. The data is not always that fresh though, but it's another source that you might not be aware of.

    Hope that helps you out.

    Cheers,

    Nobody has a reason to complain, if you want to run more than 50 keywords then you have to pay..you cannot expect everything for free, we enjoyed the last 3 years but its about time to pay if the service is not available for free…if you want to run your SEO business then Market Samurai team also needs to run their business and keep us happy…at least they came up with a great solution.. as simple as that :)

    This is good news and as a heavy user I will no doubt subscribe to one of the plans which do seem reasonable.

    However, there is still IMHO a far more important issue on MS that is not yet resolved : when will you go back to using Google data for SEOC and SEOLC ?

    For me, the tool cannot and does not fulfill its main objective (keyword analysis and identification of opportunities) while using SEOT from Google but SEOC and SEOLC from Bing.

    I know that a large number of users (myself included) have been asking this question since the start of your issues.

    Can you please give us an update on this burning issue ?

  76. Kostenlosen Plan in Rank Tracker ist Greta Nachrichten, yhank Sie! Wollen Sie mehr Funktionen in SEO Wettbewerb wie die Sortierung oder andere entwickeln zu planen?

  77. Ihr Jungs fehlen, was Sie können nun an den Kunden zu zeigen.

    Ein Client Stände außerhalb der 1000-Rang. Wie ich arbeiten, um sie zur ersten Seite bringen (an welcher Stelle sie nennen mich Mr. Incredible!), Zu sehen, wie ihr Ranking ist die Verbesserung, die Code-Wort ist, um zu sehen, ob ich meinen Job wollen sie.

    Wenn MS bietet nur die Top-100-, könnte es Wochen oder Monate dauern, bis die Kunden-Website zeigt sich in der Top-100-, wenn überhaupt!

    Wie zeige ich dem Kunden eine Erfolgsbilanz von ihnen sich von ### (außerhalb 1000) auf ### (außerhalb 1000) bis 999 to 800 bis 650 to 421 bis 274 to 121 bis 93 to 63-47 to 23-14 bis 3?

    Wenn jede Zahl in meinem Beispiel oben hat einen Monat Zeit, um zu bekommen, wird die Rangliste nicht zeigen, bis in Ihrem neuen Rang Tracker für 9 Monate (73)! Jeder meiner Kunden wäre wütend und würde mich innerhalb von 3 Monaten zu feuern, weil ich ihr Ranking verbessern, bis Weihnachten dieses Jahres nicht zeigen sie!

    Sie interessieren sich denken, was andere SEO-Gurus als gut.

  78. Danke für die ausführliche Beitrag Eugene, und es sieht aus wie Sie Jungs haben es geschafft, sich mit einem großen Lösung, die die überwiegende Mehrheit anpassen sollte - eine heikle Sache, um unter widrigen Bedingungen zu tun!

    Als neuer Benutzer an MS Ich habe hungrig zu verdauen alle Video-Tutorials, die Sie haben im Dojo, aber Rank Tracker scheint ein Bereich, ich habe nichts zu sehen - gibt es irgendwelche Videos rund um als Intro oder wird die neue Schnittstelle so unterschiedlich, dass es am besten zu warten, bis das kommt aus sein?

    Als im Anschluss an die oben Ich muss sagen, ich bin wirklich beeindruckt von der Tiefe der MS - wenn ich es gekauft habe ich nur das Stichwort Seite, aber die Anzahl und der Umfang der anderen Module ist eine große Überraschung zu sehen (wie es die Menge an Video-Training kostenlos zur Verfügung!)

    Wird sicherlich bis sein für die neue Rank Tracker Unterzeichnung als ich baue eine Menge Vertrauen in euch auf der Grundlage Ihrer letzten Blog-Posts und wie Sie wieder auf die Beine habe.

  81. Hallo,

    This looks cool. I like the way you can gradually upgrade your membership depending on your needs rather than just go to an expensive membership from no where.

    The automatic checking should help me avoid the bad habit of obsessively checking my rankings far too frequently as well!

    But sometimes it is pretty useful to run the system there and then and get a answer to a keyword question. Waiting a week for the answer may not be ideal when you are looking to fix a problem or make a decision.

    Will it be possible to still run the software mannually, on the paid options, to get an immediate answer? (perhaps with a limited number of keywords/searches – or even buy credits to do it) Is it the case that I can do this upto 50 keywords or from my own computers location ie not your servers?

    Andrew

  82. Thanks guys for working so hard to get this sorted.

    It's great you have managed to keep a free option available for existing customers and the pricing for existing customers looks very fair to me too.

  83. Hi guys – great job fixing it all up and am really pleased to see you have come up with a great way to keep almost everyone happy. The 'old' service was slow and a bit clunky so I am really looking forward to the new version.

  84. Thanks for addressing this in a way which should suit a huge number of users – sure, it wont work for some maybe which is a shame, but for most it strikes me as a good deal.

    If it stands up like you hope it will after the beta, then it looks like you'll have turned a (big) problem into an opportunity to update the service and effectively too…

    One Q – if you already have a licence for MS and/or AS do you need to do anything at all before April 30th, or will you automatically be on the White Belt plan – and will you then be able to upgrade to higher plans at the lower cost at any time in the future.

  85. Hi Eugene & team,

    I am amazed!

    You have created a more than great solution at an awesome pricepoint. Can hardly believe that you are bearing the considerable cost for your users. Don't think there are many who woulf do that!!!

    Well, I am definitely in and looking forward to the cloud based service with automatic weekly reports. That makes things easier and smoother for me.

    DANK

  86. Not very happy about that! I have the paid version and you change the deal…

  87. Hey Eugene,

    While I can understand the need to cut down costs (or make more money; depends how you look at it), 50 keywords is really not much to begin with, especially if you're just starting to work on a website.

    Majority of new sites needs to be checked across hundreds of keywords to pinpoint the best possible ones, BEFORE you start optimizing and tracking the “best ones”.

    Also, as a software developer, I don't see what's the big deal with maintaining the local tracker… yes – it defeats the purpose of the cloud for 92% of the users, but it works, and it works well! why change something that works well?

    SUGGESTION:
    Keep the local Rank Tracker and add the cloud service as an paid add-on for those who really need it.

    - ODER -

    Allow FREE users to check UNLIMITED number of keywords ONCE per month (once per keyword/month) AND track up to 50 keywords (50 keywords/week).

  88. Hi Guys!

    Wow, fantastic! Being an existing PAID customer of both Market and Article Samurai, this is music to my ears! I have to say, I have been using raventools.com for past 30 days on a free trial and now it's going to be $99/month, so kinda glad you nearly at testing phase!

    Two important question that I had in mind, and that is:

    1. “Can one upgrade from any price plan at any stage?”

    2. “Will one subscription to a price plan allow me to use the ranktracker on both Market and Article Samurai?”

    You talk about a “slow way” of rank tracking, which is actually what's happening now.

    One thing I wanted to clarify here.

    As I grow my business and as an existing user of MS, would one still qualify for the discounted package if they purchsed the rank tracker a little later on, or would I have to purchase it now, even though I am not yet at the stage of hitting 50+ searches?

    Just wanted to know if this pricing would be locked in for existing members or if they too would have to pay the higher price if they purchased the extra's later on.

    I'm wondering if this is the first step in moving more included services to a paid version. First RT; what's next?

    How long will it take before MS is at Article Samurai pricing levels?

  99. thanks for the much awaited update Eugene. looking forward to utilizing the paid plans. you definitely have the cost advantage over the competition, and based on having used MS for the past couple years I have no doubts the quality will also be amazing. thank you for doing what you do.

  100. Great, comprehensive update Eugene. Thank you for coming up with a wonderful solution – although I am not surprised at all. You continue to over deliver and I know you know that it is very much appreciated. I am looking forward to the modified rank tracker module, as well as some of the advanced packages.

  101. Hia Eugene,

    I have a few doubts:

    1) The 1000 keywords for the brown belt are in total for all the projects right? not for the the maximun in a project? If I have 3 projects of 250 keywords, 1 of 200 keywords, and 2 of 100 keywords, I would have 1150 for which I need more than 1000 keywords.

    2) I see that the price for keyword is 0,04 for the 1000 keywords plan and also 0,04 for the 2500 keyword plan. It's more than the double volume of keywords (x2,5)… wouldn't it bee normal to reduce a bit the price for keyword as the volume is much more to 0'03 or at least 0'035? I feel that the ones that are in the 1% in which I'm surely included have to assume the big cost for all the rest of the users.
    I think is normal that if we pay a for a huge volume of keywords, we should have a “special offer” in the price per keyword, isn't it?. The way you set it it's more rentable for people like me to pay 2 brown belts (1000 keyword plans = 40$x2) than 1 black belt (2500 keyword plan = 100$), is more cheaper and I would have acces to Market Samurai from the double of PC's…

    3) Will I be able to have a bill monthly for my accountancy?

    Dank

    Hi Eugene. Thanks for keeping us up to date with the status of MS. This may have been asked already, and if so I apologize for the redundancy. I use MS primarily for doing keyword research, and occasionally (monthly at the most) I'll run a ranking report for a few of my clients. If I keep every campaign/project as inactive, and only activate and run the rank tracker monthly to get these reports, and keep the number of keywords per project at 50 or less, does this qualify for the free version? Ie, I don't have a need for the ranking information to be up to date except for once a month.

  103. Hey MS gang how's it going.

    First let me say that I love ya guys. Really I do. Always on top of things.

    But this new rank tracker thig an how it's going to work is not a good thing in my honest opinion.

    Hier ist ein Beispiel.

    If my client walks in today and wants results. What am I to say, that he needs to wait a week?

    Not cool.

    As for me, if I'm going to pay for this, then I would like a little more control of it.

    Weekly stats just won't be enough for me and as I can see by the comments left all ready, I'm not the only one that feels this way.

    I totally understand the whole deal behind it, I do.

    It just doesn't seem like an actual fix.

    The discount is cool and even the full price is good. But in my opinion, your competition charging more is a better deal just because we can actually do more with it.

    Anyway, I'm still using it for research. However, I will miss the rank tracker so much.

    Guess I'll have to do some sole searching for another tracking feature. Sorry but the way you guys have it now is just not good enough.

    Just hope this doesn't kill MS for good.

    Cheers,
    Joey

    Hi Folks

    First I'd like to add my thanks to all the others. You consistently define what customer service is all about.

    Quick question, which you may have answered but I got tired of reading all the comments.

    When you say “sign up for …” are you referring to signing up for MS or do you mean the new rank-tracker program?

    I am a MS-paid owner but will be satisfied with the 50-free program for now. Will I still qualify for the 50% discount rates for the rank-tracker if I need to upgrade after April 30?

    Cheers,
    Ric

  106. 106

    At first I was a bit pissed this was happening and wrote a response to the original post concerning it… I'm glad I took my own advice about emails/posts, don't do it in anger.

    I've been with MS since its initial launch through 30DC and have never regretted it, even now. You guys have done a great job for a long time and the solution you've come up with more than satisfactory, it's genius.

    Now that I've explained what a dooch I almost made of myself, and how terrific you guys are, I have a question.

    I too am confused about the whole “existing customer” signup for a plan. I've read the posts here and still can't figure it out, especially since there seems to be a contradiction between two MS posters.

    Eugene said: “You must sign up to any plan (even the FREE 50 Keyword Whitebelt Plan will count) before 30th April to get access to the special 50% off pricing.”

    ABER
    Sarah said: “Initially, all users will be on a free keyword plan by default, but you'll need to sign up to a paid plan before April 30th to take advantage of the discounted prices.”

    So, Eugene says signing up for FREE plan is ok, but Sarah says a PAID plan. Which is it? Free plan by default and locked in pricing discounts, OR, purchase a PAID plan ( even if it's the cheapest $5.00/mo)?

    Thanks Guys/Gals

    Miriam Parkinson replied:

    Sorry about the confusion! It stems from the fact that we were all a little confused. We changed how we were going to manage the discounted plans based on feedback on the blog so there was a contradiction in the comments for a period of time.

    In order to be eligible for the discounted plans (once they are launched) you need to either:
    * Visit the Rank Tracker product page in the accounts system
    * Click 'Change Plan' in Rank Tracker (within Market Samurai)
    * Create a campaign in Rank Tracker
    * Upload a project to a campaign in Rank Tracker

    Provided this is done by the 30th April you will get access to the 50 keyword free plan and be eligible for the discounted paid plans if/when you need to upgrade in the future.

    I hope this clarifies things!

    Hi Eugene,

    First let me say that MS is by far my favorite tool to use when it comes to Keyword and Rank Tracking. I also think it's a wise decision to move to the system you're moving to.

    I know this has been asked, but I just want to make sure I'm understanding the new pricing structure for existing customers correctly.

    Say I sign up for the 50 Keyword Free Rank Checker before April 30. If I need to upgrade to the 100 word plan 6 months later, would I get it at the 50% off rate or would I be paying the retail rate?

    If it's at the 50% rate, would that hold true if at a later date I needed to upgrade to the 1000 word plan? Or when I went to the additional upgrade would I then be paying the retail rate?

    In essence, is the plan to allow current customers (those that sign up for at least the “white belt” plan by April 30) to have access to higher level plans at the 50% rate going forward, or will there be a cutoff where they'll be paying the “retail” rates if they choose to upgrade or downgrade their plan?

    Again, I think you guys have come up with a wonderful solution to the problems Google's changes caused. I also think the new way will be much more efficient, which is always a good thing.

    Danke,

    Josh

  109. So, let me get this straight…. Google made a huge change to how your service works. Instead of using them as the scapegoat, you guys found a way to continue to service 92% of your customers for free even though it will come at a moderate cost to you?

    Hats off to MS! Thank you for all of your hard work and research. This no undoubtedly has taken uncountable hours of your time. Every MS user should feel so blessed and “treated” that you guys have been working so hard for us.

  110. Gut gemacht!

    You have found a great solution… although it will not fit my requirements I am still a very happy customer and could not be without MS… I have many smaller projects and I have 20 – 30 keywords for each project… however I have found another solution to Rank Tracking.

    As far as I am concerned even without RT MS is very good value for money…

    Question: I use RT not only for rank tracking but also for tracking the development in Backlinks. This is especially true for Article Samurai, but also for MS…

    Will you consider adding a Backlink Tracking Module instead of RT to fill this gap?

    Thanks a million for your extraordinary effort!!

  111. Eugene,

    Vielen Dank für das Update.

    Just in case I have missed it, who are you going to use to source the data? The reason I ask is that I also use SEO Powersuite and I have found the Rank Tracker module is quicker than many of the competitors (not comparing against MS or AS I hasten to add) and more reliable results. Therefore, I don't want to pay for MS if it is the same source.

    Many thanks for your efforts in reaching a fair solution to the problems posed by the Google changes.

    I do have a couple of questions:

    Would it be possible to set up two groups of 50 keywords, then alternate the group that is live, so effectively getting data on 100 keywords once a fortnight?

    When we upload our keywords to the new scheme, will the existing data be carried forward?

    Can you clarify the question many are confused on, regarding moving up the tiers in future, and the price applicable. If you are an existing member now, and you start with the 50 free keywords under the new scheme, but later need to upgrade to 100, will you still get the discount.

    In answer to one question, it was suggested that the 50 keyword free plan may become a paid for plan (Answer to Comment 7)
    “At the moment the 50 free keyword plan is not on top of the paid plan. So a 200 keywords plan will get 200 keywords, not 250. The 50 keyword plan may become a standalone paid plan in the future”
    Can you clarify this – are you suggesting that even those existing users who will qualify for the free 50 keywords, may have to pay for the free 50 keywords in the future?

    Vielen Dank.

    3. Yes, if you sign up to the free 50 keyword plan before April 30th, and then want to upgrade in the future after the cut-off date, you will still get access to the special 50% off pricing.

  116. Hi Eugene,

    I read the post and most of the comments but I am still not clear on one thing that I would like to know about. Pardon me if this has already been answered but I just couldn't read hundreds of comments. My question is below;

    I am a paid customer of MS and I use Rank Track regularly. My current usage is below 50 keywords so I don't have to buy any subscription as it will be useless. But what happens when I grow and add more keywords for more websites.. I mean will I get the same discounted price of being an existing customer when I subsscribe to a Paid Plan in 6 months from now?

    Also, this 50 keywords is based on per campaign, per website or per client? Or is it just 50 keywords and no matter how many domains/URLs, how many campaigns and how many clients I have?

    I am sorry but I haven't used any other paid service as yet and thus don't know how it works. And I can proudly say I never felt like any other service because what I needed was available in MS.

    Thanks for the great software and I support the paid plans. When I feel a need, I'll upgrade to paid plans happily.

    Well, I prefer traffic travis as I can track 1000s of keywords and there is no monthly fee. Any reason why I should suddenly be paying a monthly fee for rank tracking through MS?

  124. Hallo

    Thanks for the update – I was starting to worry and look for alternatives but this post has put a stop to that. Where can we sign up for the plans (or is this only available when the beta is ready?)

    Dank

    Hi Paul,

    We haven't actually released the sign up pages yet!

    Once we release the new Rank Tracker service, we'll open the signup pages.

    We'll send out an email with some more information closer to the release date.

    Cheers,

  125. As a MS and AS customer with about 80% common keywords across both systems will one RT subscription cover both products?

    Hi Bob,

    Your Rank Tracker plan will be held at the account level, so you will be able to use the same plan for both Market and Article Samurai.

    If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to send an email to support@noblesamurai.com and we'll do our best to answer.

    Cheers,

  126. Hallo,

    first of all, very good pricing plans! I have been checking out lots of companies the last few months, and all are way more expensive (and now you have given an insight in why this is). And I really appreciate the fact that you give the discount to current AND future customers (till 30 April). That is customer service at it's best!

    What I would like to know if you are thinking about a simple read-only iPhone/Android app. Since you already got the data in the cloud instead of on a local computer, it might be easy to push this info to an app as well. What I like is preparing my fixed computer work on my iPhone, so selecting projects first before starting things up. Having the Rank Tracker data on my iPhone means I can start up faster, OR use this data when working on a computer which hasn't got my MS installation (for excample, I currently have my leg broken and mostly work from my laptop, while my MS is installed on my fixed computer).

    Thank you for reading,

    Jacco

  127. An off-the-topic question.

    Which translation plugin / software are you using?

    Yours is neat on the sidebar. I tried several but couldn't find the right one.

  128. Effectively, I'm new in internet marketing. I am utilizing plr articles however they aren't cheap. Currently I'm in search of a plr article membership site which can allow me to download plr articles at a month-to-month fee. Please help.

    What happens to the keywords we have been tracking do we lose this or will you be able to upload this?

    As one of the original testers of MS and a NobleFanatic to the point of a invisible belt color, Im glad, relieved, excited to hear Diamyo's at MarketSamuri answered the call.

    Question when is the Beta invite going out? (also the sign up)

    Waiting patiently with my Yoroi on and a glass of IWantRankTracker sake in hand :)

    BTW: A Samuri leader is called a Diamyo
