Market Samurai on tagasi!

Hi All,

Kiire Update meie edu taastamisel Market Samurai funktsioone ja mõned vastused korduvatele küsimustele.

Esimesena astus üles, suur aitäh teile kõigile, kes pole postitatud, saadetakse ja tweeted erinevate julgustav sõna (meie kasutajad on fantastiline!). Nagu mainitud meie eelmine postitus, oleme tõeliselt kahju seisak.

Hea uudis on see, et tänu suure nädalavahetusel ja mõned hilinenud ööd meie arendusmeeskond, et oleme enamasti jälle toimib. Siin on jaotus ...

Mis on töö?

Hea uudis on see, et välja arvatud suuremahuliste Rank kontrollimine, Market Samurai funktsioone on nüüd taastatud. Siin on jaotus staatuse moodul.

Märksõna Research - täielikult toimiv
Pange tähele, et me jätkuvalt kasutada Google märksõna põlvkonna, liiklus ja CPC hinnanguid.

Oleme kasutusele Bing mõned konkurentsi hinnanguid (vt allpool miks Bing andmete töötab siin).

SEO Konkurents - täielikult toimiv
Pange tähele, SEO Matrix näitab jätkuvalt top 10 tulemused Google

Kasutaja (ja jagamine) konkurentsi maatriks on taastatud ja toimib nagu ta varem teinud (sh näitab Google PageRank top 10 konkureerivate veebilehti).

Kuna mõned kasutajad teavad, kui vaadata teatud URL, SEO Competition moodul võimaldab teil uurida ja vaadata, ankur teksti ja asutus iga top 1000 tagasi linke, et URL. See on suurepärane võimalus uurida konkurendi tagasi lingid ja vaata, mis ühendab võimalusi.

Oleme ajutiselt asendada Google PageRank selles üksikasjalikku analüüsi ACRank (alternatiivne ja ebatäpsem asutus). Me räägime, et andmete esitajate kohta konkreetsema võimu (nt PageRank, MozRank või samaväärne) ja siis vaadata seda lähikuudel.

Koht Tracker - Operatiivne kohaliku masina
Pange tähele, et me jälgime paremusjärjestusest Google

Tegemist on ajutise meetmega, meil muuta Rank Tracker kasutada oma arvutis, et kontrollida pingeread Google. Koht kontrolli muude mootorite (Bing ja Yahoo!) edasi sõita meie serverites. Kontroll pingeread kaudu kohapeal rakenduse töötab kasutajad järelevalve vähesed märksõnad, kuid suuremate koguste üldiselt kaasa oma teenuse Google ajutiselt halvenenud.

Ilmselt see ei ole ideaalne ja nii me töötame asendamine auaste jälgimise teenus ja me ootame see võtab 2-3 nädalat rakendada.

Praeguseks oleme koondas meie kasutamise statistikat, teha kontakti kuus võimalikku andmete esitajate ja koostatud uuendatud kasutajaliides arendajatele töö alustamiseks. Te saate lugeda rohkem sellest allpool.

Korduma kippuvad küsimused

Nagu te ilmselt arvata, meie toetus on iga töötaja saanud veeuputus päringuid, ja nii et ma mõtlesin, et ma võiks aidata vastata mõnele levinud küsimustele:

Kas Market Samurai saada igakuist toodet?

Või nagu üks kasutaja panna - on see kõik lihtsalt maskeeritud liikuda kuumakse kava? Vastus (mõlemale küsimusele ...) ei ole.

Välja arvatud Rank Tracker (vt allpool), Market Samurai jääb ühekordne kulu. Kasutajad, kes olen olnud meiega algusest peale (üle 3 ja pool aastat tagasi) on saanud ligi 450 tasuta uuendused, nagu me oleme sammu pidada kõiki erinevaid muutusi SEO maastiku - ja seal on palju rohkem tulema!

Nagu paljud on juba aru saanud, et me usume, pakkudes suure väärtusega, ühekordne makse toode on parim viis ehitada lojaalne kasutajaskond.

Taandumisega Yahoo Site Explorer (varem kasutatud võimule tagasi link ja ankur teksti analüüs) kolisime kaubandusliku kokkuleppe Majestic SEO (at 5 Joonis igakuine kulu) ja on imendunud arvelt läbimata võrra sellest olulist kulude kohta meie klientidele.

Järjestab Tracker on igakuine kulu ja milline see oleks?

Google'i hiljutine muutused tähendavad, et me ei saa enam jätkusuutlikult tõmmake auaste andmed meie kasutajate baasi (üle 400K kasutajate kokku).

Nagu mainitud eelmises postituses, Esialgsete hinnangute ostukulud meie igapäevast andmeid puudutavad nõuded 40,000 $ päevas, kulud, et me ei suuda taluda. Nii et meie eesmärk on osta edetabel usaldusväärsed andmed hulgimüüja ning teeb selle kättesaadavaks tellimuse alusel kohaldamise kaudu.

Me ei tea veel, milline kulu Rank Tracking on ja kuidas pakkuda on üles ehitatud. Kõik me saame öelda, on see, et sõltumata põhjusest, mõistame, et võttes üks meie mooduleid, mis oli "vabalt kasutada" ning muuta see "maksma kasutada" ei ole hea uudis meie klientidele.

Me ei saa kindlalt öelda, et me oleme võimelised pakkuma väga konkurentsivõimelise hinnaga struktuur meie läbivaadatud järjekohale teenust. See on võimalik, sest me ostavad massiliselt ja me mõistame, mis pakub palju on oluline viis hoida usku teiega, meie kasutajatele.

Ilmselt selliseid pakett on vabatahtlik ning me mõistame, kui olete hiljuti ostetud Market Samurai jaoks Rank Tracking ja tunda, et sa ei saada raha oma ostu olete õigus saada tagasi.

Samuti leiame, see samm annab meile võime parandada funktsionaalsust põhivaldkondades ka.

Kas ma saan kasutada Rank Tracker minu kohtvõrku?

Nagu eespool märgitud, Rank Tracker on ajutiselt uuendatud kasutada oma arvutis ja me varsti pakkudes parandatud teenuse, mis jälle tõmbab andmed oma serveritest. Kontroll mõõdukas kuni suur maht märksõnade sinu arvutis võib põhjustada ajutiselt halvenenud Google teenust kõigile, kes on samas võrgus, kui sina. Ettevõtete keskkond seda tuleks üldjuhul vältida.

Kust Market Samurai nüüd kasutada Bing andmed?

Tähtis - me jätkuvalt kasutada Google:

  • Märksõna põlvkonna
  • Liiklus hinnang
  • CPC hinnang
  • SEO konkurentsi siiski põhineb Google'i otsingutulemuste
  • Koht Tracking jätkuvalt jälgida paremusjärjestusest Google (nagu ka Yahoo ja Bing)

Samas oleme liikunud kolm andmepunkti meie märksõna Research moodul Bing (via suurepärase API):
SEOC - mitmete konkureerivate lehekülge sisaldav eesmärgi märksõna fraas.
SEOTC - mitu konkureerivat lehekülgi eesmärgi märksõna fraasi pealkiri tag.
SEOUC - mitu konkureerivat lehekülgi eesmärgi märksõna fraasi lehekülje URL.

Hea uudis on see, et paljud kasutajad tugineda SEOTC kui konkurents mõõdik ja piirangute tõttu päringu mahu, oleme varem vaja kasutajaid klikkima iga märksõna käivitab andmete kogumisega. Mis Bing integratsioon, me oleme nüüd võimelised tagasi automaatselt tõmmates neid andmeid kõikide märksõnade mistõttu on palju kiirem ja lihtsam välja filtreerida märksõnad kõrge SEOTC / SEOUC konkurentsi.

Kas Bing kehtiv meede konkurentsi? Ei ole ma püüdnud auaste Google?

Tähtis - me jätkuvalt kasutada Google:

  • Märksõna põlvkonna
  • Liiklus hinnang
  • CPC hinnang
  • SEO konkurentsi siiski põhineb Google'i otsingutulemuste
  • Koht Tracking jätkuvalt jälgida paremusjärjestusest Google (nagu ka Yahoo ja Bing).

SEOC (ja sellega seotud SEOTC ja SEOUC meetrika) kõik aitavad vastata põhiküsimus on sama "mitu lehekülge maailmas on minu märksõnade neid?". Või teisiti öeldes, kui märksõna on madal SEOC mõõdik, see on "piiratud" või "vähem kasutatud" Internetis kui märksõnad kõrge SEOC väärtus.

Need meetmed olla kõrge filtrid, mis aitavad teil välja rookima tulevane märksõnad, mis tõenäoliselt on tugev konkurents. On mõistlik korrelatsioon madal SEOC ja madala konkurentsi. Me peaksime tähele, me oleme näinud palju juhtumeid, kus märksõnad on kõrge SEOC väärtused võiks reastatud kergesti ja mõned madala SEOC väärtused on läbimatu.

Lõppkokkuvõttes SEO, sul on ainult 10 konkurente, ja need on need alad, võttes top 10 paremusjärjestusest, et teil tuleb tõrjuda, et tõmmata liiklust. SEOC (ja sellega seotud meetmed) tuleb kasutada peamise filter, kuid mitte kunagi (lubage mul korrata, et mitte kunagi!) Ainsa aluse valimisel märksõna, eriti üks peamisi märksõnu saidile. Kui olete välja filtreeritud tõenäoliselt suur konkurents märksõna, see on, vaadates tulemusi SEO Competition moodul (mis on jätkuvalt põhinema esilehel Google), et saate määrata mõistliku kindlusega oma võimet saada hinne.

SEO Competition moodul võimaldab sul näha lühidalt peamised SEO meetrika iga teie konkurendid järjekohale top 10 kohas.

Nii on Bing OK kõrgel tasemel konkurentsi analüüs?

Arvestades, et meie lähenemine kõrgetasemelist konkurentsi analüüs taandub "kuidas paljud teised veebilehed on minu märksõna neid?", Siis Bing on suurepärane andmeallikas.

Bing indeksid samu andmeid (nt veebilehed) nagu Google ja hoolimata sellest, et mõnevõrra hilja tulija otsing mäng, nad nüüd kiidelda tohutu andmestiku (ja on haaranud tugev turuosa - ligikaudu 30% USA-s ja nende tulemuste kaudu Yahoo!). Pea meeles, et see on midagi pistmist otsing algoritmid.

Me ei võrrelda suhtelisi eeliseid Bing vs Google tagastamise hea otsingutulemuste (kuigi Bing on täisealiseks saanud selles ruumis liiga). See on umbes sama suur iga otsingumootori indeks - ja Bing indeks on nüüd lihtsalt piisavalt suur, et anda head konkurentsi mõõdikud.

Ajal mil paljud SEO vahendid hõlmavad SEOC stiilis meetme vastega tasandil (nt oma eesmärgi märksõna saab jagada eraldi sõnad segatud kõikjal lehel), Market Samurai tõmbab SEOC andmeid fraasivastel alusel. See tähendab, et turu Samurai näete, kui palju eesmärgi lehekülgi sisaldama märksõna nagu täielik ja terved laused. Kuigi SEOC aitab ainult veel kõrge filtreerige kasutamine fraasivastel andmed on üldjuhul täpsemad.

Miks on teisi SEO tooteid ei mõjuta?

Viimase kolme ja poole aasta jooksul oleme saanud väga tuttav Google'i tolerantsid kõrge päringu mahus. Möödunud nädala lõpus ja nädalavahetuse jooksul nägime kolme konkreetset ja üsna radikaalseid muutusi see hälve, mida me ei suutnud lahendada hoolimata kasutuselevõtu lisaressursse.

Nagu üks suurimaid mängijate turul, on raske kindlaks teha, kas Market Samurai oli konkreetselt suunatud või kui Google rakendada uut poliitikat ja me olime lihtsalt piisavalt aktiivne, et käivitada piire. See on täiesti võimalik, nagu oli varem üks väheseid vahendeid, et pakkuda reaalajas auaste analüüsi piiramatu mahuga märksõnu. Kuidas teised vahendid piletihind, vaid aeg näitab. Hea uudis on see, et me oleme suutnud reageerida ja lahendada kõige küsimusi.

Kas Market Samurai on offline kuue kuu jooksul?

On hinnanguid väliste osapoolte SEO ruumi, et probleemid leiavad meid kuue kuu jooksul lahendada. Nüüd on 5 päeva pärast nägime muutus Google'i sallivus suures mahus küsimusi ja me jälle 100% meie moodulite täielikult toimiv.

Me ootame lahendus suuremahuliste Rank Tracking 2-3 nädala jooksul.

Meil 400.000 kasutajat, miks me ei võiks lihtsalt taluda maksab?

Nagu võite ilmselt aru, on piirid, mida me ei saa endale lubada müümisel ühekordne makse tarkvarapakett, mis nõuab pidevat personali, infrastruktuuri ja andmesideteenuste, et säilitada ja pakkuda tarkvara.

Meil on veidi üle 50.000 makstud kasutajatele, ülejäänud kasutades tasuta väljaanne. Kuigi meil on õnnelik, et on tulus äri ja rahavarud kulusid osta andmeid me varem tõmmatakse otse on üle oma võimete. Ainult hõbedane vooder on see, et kasutaja baasi naudime me oodata, et oleks võimalik pidada läbirääkimisi ja vastutasuks pakkumisi hinne andmeid väga konkurentsi alusel.

Tänan teid veel kord oma toetust !! (Tõsiselt!)

Lõpetuseks tahaksin vabandada veelkord ebamugavuste pärast, mida meie ette aega. Kõik meie töötajad on töötanud mõned väga pikka aega, et teha vajalikud uuendused ja ma isiklikult öelda südamega tunda aitäh kõigile positiivseid kommentaare, kirju ja tweets oleme näinud tulevad meie tee.

Oleme pühendunud kui kunagi varem, et muuta turu Samurai parim Internet Marketing investeeringute saad teha.

  4. Hi Eugene,

    Täname uuendus, liikudes auaste tracker eraldi toode on hea.

    Kas olete kursis kohaliku arvuti auaste jälgimise Market Samurai. Samuti doesnt ta kasutada volikirju ja miks seal probleem olla kohtvõrgus?

    Thanks
    Atanas


    John vastas:

    Jah, pidage arvutis auaste jälgimise! Vähemalt on inimestel võimalik kontrollida mõne märksõna korraga. Ma kasutan seda teenust iga päev mõned märksõnad ja mul ei ole mingeid probleeme Google.


    Dennis vastas:

    hoides kohaliku arvuti auaste jälgimise kohta ei ole mõtet müüjalt seisukohast, sest sel juhul nad tahaks enam võimalik jälgida (ja vastavalt tegutseda?) märksõna / järjekohale otsingud oma kliendibaasi.


    Atanas vastas:

    <<

    Huh? Esiteks ma ei näe mingit põhjust müüja tuleb jälgida oma märksõnade - isegi rohkem ma ei näe avalikustamises MS on tegelikult teinud.

    Lisaks muidugi kohalikud otsingud ei takista neid jälgimise märksõnu samal ajal ja saatmise tahes andmeid, mida nad tahavad, et nende serverid lõpus kohaliku otsing.


    Miriam Parkinsoni vastas:

    Tere, me ei jälgi märksõnad, mida kasutada. Kuigi märksõnad ei lähe läbi meie Serverid märksõna andmed eemaldatakse jooksul 24 tundi.

  5. Tore näha kõike jälle tööle. Ma kasutan Rank Tracker iga päev, kuid ma rahul lahendus teil on praegu. Ootan kuu tellimus versioon. Võib-olla see võiks olla maksumus tuleb kasutada eraldi. Suured tänud kõigile oma rasket saada MS tagasi töökorras.

  6. Teie konkurent ütleb, et seal ei muutunud üldse googles algoritm. Kas see on tõsi?


    Miriam Parkinsoni vastas:

    Hi Volker puudus Google algoritm muutus - see oli rohkem tehniline muutus, kuidas nad hakkama suure mahuga päringuid. Eugene arutas seda all "Ühine Küsimused" blogi postitus

  7. Täname uuendus ja rasket tööd, et see probleem lahendada võimalikult kiiresti. Kas te saate anda hinnang, kui palju märksõnu saame jälgida kasutades oma arvuti iga kord enne Google piirab meie juures? Kas sa arvad, kasutades volikirju või VPN abi piirmäära suurendada, pöörates IP-d?


    Ben Stickland vastas:

    Hi Battra

    Võite (ja on alati olnud võimalik) siseneda oled enda IP arvesse Market Samurai eelistuste tabeli. See on kindlasti läbilaskevõimet. Me ei tugevalt edendada, sest kui kuni hiljutiste sündmuste, et siin on mingit väärtust see (ja see on pärast tehnilise suutlikkuse tavakasutaja).

    Seoses ohutu kasutamine, oma auto läbisõidu alusel võib varieeruda. On isiklikke projekte Ma töötab 10 märksõna alla top 50 ilma probleemideta. Kinni mõistliku otsisügavus ja ei sisalda fraasivastel juhtivtöötajad on kaks peamist tehnikat, et vältida teenuse halvenemist.

    Cheers, Ben


    Battra vastas:

    Aitäh, Ben! Ma arvan, et MS töötab suurepäraselt karbist välja, et ma ei maksa palju tähelepanu eelistusi seaded:-P


    Ryan vastas:

    Kas me suudame jätkata kasutades Rank Tracker meie kohalikus masinas isegi pärast märkimise teenuse rullitakse? Ma olen trahvi tellimus pakutavat teenust, kuid sooviks võimalus kasutada oma volikirju ja ole igakuist teenust.


    Ben Stickland vastas:

    Hei Battra

    Vabandust, et vauge, kuid vastus on, et me ei tea, selles punktis. Oleme sügavalt arutelu võimalike müüjate ja ma kahtlustan, et see siis sõltub osaliselt sellest, mida müüja valime meie teenuste ja millised on mõjud integreerida neid.

    Kõik, mis ma võin öelda, ma tean, et te kasutate välist volikirju seega peaksime vähemalt kaaluma kasutajate arvu oma olukorda meie aruteludes.

    Cheers,

    Ben

  8. Eugene - ma võin ainult ette kujutada, stressi taset teil on tekkinud viimase paari päeva ja tahan tänada teid küsimustel selliselt selgelt. Isiklikult olen jälgimise vaid käputäis märksõnu nii et ma peaks olema ok jälgimise neid minu kohalikus masinas. Ma ootan, et näha, millist maksegraafiku sa tulla. Lihtsalt hoida seda taskukohase meile, kes ei tee suuri märksõna jälgimise.

  9. Suurepärane! Olen entusiastlik kasutaja Market Samurai ja kõik, mida ma ei saa öelda, suur aitäh ja teil on väga ausad poisid, kes väärivad austust. Umbes Bing: see on hea asi, sa pead Google aru, et neil on mõned konkurentsi.

    Hi Guys

    I try to avoid the knee-jerk reactions and comments brought on by events such as this.

    The top and bottom of this is that MS is still one of the best Keyword Tools around and for the price, if this is all we were getting it would still be a good deal!

    I think you have all responded magnificently to this issue and the MS team (and company) should be applauded for the way in which they have handled the problem.

    I for one am happy to be using a tool/service knowing that it has the highest level of service available – all for less than $150 one time!

    Thanks Guys.

  13. I am so happy that MS is back and I can enjoy it now.

  14. Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the update and I think a huge level of congratulations and praise is due to you and the team for your handling of the whole situation.

    As a new user of Market Samurai I've been extremely impressed at the professionalism shown in both your response to the changes and the way in which you've kept us informed – great job well done!

    As I've previously read from other users posts I can't believe anyone is seriously considering requesting a refund! The combination of the very low 'one off' price and the support and tutorials freely offered, along with service and commitment like we've seen over the last few days shows what a great product and commitment the MS team have, the freely provided videos alone are worth the initial purchase price!

    Keep up the good work, I look forward to working with you for a long time to come.

  15. Thanks for your update.I am using this software too

  16. Great stuff Eugene. I am also curious how many words we can track and what are the ramifications if by chance we try to pull data on too many? cheers

    Thank you very much for being so transparent with the updates and for such a hard work.

    I really love MarketSamurai, and your commitment with us is a really important part of the product.

    Don't hesitate to ask if you need any halp. Tänan teid väga.

  18. I cannot vist http://www.marketsamurai.com/ for a few minutes. I have thought it is down again. Oh it is back. However, I find some golden role keywords are hard to rank but some high competitive keyword are easy to be ranked in to pageone. I think you need make some improvement on keywords analysis. For exameple, you may define the competiveness by analysing sites from page1-3 backlinks nubmer and quality. Try to create some useful index to give user a better experience.

  19. A big thankyou for the enormous effort that has gone into delivering the best possible service throughout what must have been an incredibly difficult time for everyone involved at Market Samurai.

    I rely on the tools in Market Samurai and it's great to have it back.

    With regard to the Rank Checker, I think that a tiered pricing structure would be best, based on the number of queries made. This would enable individual users to decide which package would be best for them and someone just starting with one website, or growing their business and having just a handful, could still enjoy the same service as someone with hundreds of sites – without being overburdened by another cost at a time when money is very tight.

    Most of all, I wanted to say thank you for keeping us informed, every step of the way – which is a rare thing anywhere these days! No BS, no “sob story”, just a clear explanation of what went wrong, why it went wrong, what you are doing about it and how long it will take to fix. What more could anyone ask for!

  20. At least keep Rank Tracker to the local machine version. I can use VPN and perform searches. It will be good enough for me.

  21. Good news – and thanks for your extraordinary reactivity and honest communication on all these issues. I for one will be prepared to pay a monthly fee to be able to track rankings.

    I have 2 quick questions about the switch to Bing :

    1. Does Bing have the same PBR % issue as Google – ie should we still filter out anything below 15% as you advised us to do when looking at Google data?

    2. Is Bing picking up local SEOT ? Im running some analysis this morning and I'm quite convinced that the numbers are too inflated for the local market I'm looking at (France) – as if it's getting Google data here. I just can't believe that there is as much search on the terms im looking at, considering Bing is less than 10% of search market in France.

    Once again, you guys do a great job.
    Keep it up.

    GOD SAVE MARKET SAMURAI

    Hi Paul. We're only using Bing for competition data, not traffic data. The traffic data (SEOT, PBR etc is still Google data)

    for all your work

  24. Hi,
    I just use Market Samurai [paid version] for my personal sites. I have very few keywords that I analyse. [Also for a very small third world market] So please make sure for SEO hobbyists like me you will keep a free version of Rank Tracker for limited usage.
    Thanks

  25. Yes, I think that you should implement well the proxies solution. Most of us have paid proxies and that may be the best solution to deal with this issue. We are already paying for the proxies and we shouldn't have to pay again for other external proxies.

    Implement rotating proxies for Rank Tracker, please.

  26. Good work guys, I'm glad the Rank Tracker is back even if it is temporary. I'd just started using it on a new project and then … Pop! … it broke. I'll be interested to see the now costing model.

  27. Thanks you very much !

  28. Thank you for reaching out in a timely manner to share this information. I can appreciate all the hard word you put in and what you have been able to accomplish in such a short time.

    Hey thanks for quick updates…you are great but i am now confused for AC rank because in the competition module i am not able to calculate that how many backlinks i need for my site with what PR because now i have AC rank. Also i dont know how to calculate what PR equivalent to what AC rank so if you can help me for that i would be very thankful to you…

    Once again thanks for quick comming back

    Thanks so much for getting Market Samurai back up and running so quickly!

    I must admit, I bought Market Samurai a few months ago, but haven't really used it yet as I'm in the process of launching a new business (which means I have a LOT of different things to do).

    I'm just now moving into pre-launch of my company, which means I'll be putting out a lot of content on my site. So I need Market Samurai NOW. So the timing of Market Samurai going down couldn't have been worse.

    So I'm REALLY glad you've got it back up and running so quickly! Thank you so much!

    Would you please update your training videos too? I know you're busy, but that would be especially helpful. :)

  31. Thanks for the update. With all the changes going on with google, it's a must the we keep up. I think it's only fair that users should pay (minimally) for the Rank Tracker.

  32. Thanks for the update and the honesty. Much appreciated.

    Cheers

  33. It is amazing the number of times MS updated its software version in the last few days. Each time I pull up MS, there is a new version. I use Rank Tracker everyday and I dread the day I have to pay for it.

  34. When checking 10 keywords for ranking I've been hit with Captcha from Google… however MS does not seem to handle that (unless you've just added it today)… it just stops…

    Also, Bing had indexed significanly less pages compared to Google… for some of my sites we are talking Bing 20 pages, Google 12000 pages…

    Obviously if Bing has less pages indexed the SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC figures will be less accurate…

    Do you intend to re-instate Google for SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC?

    And finally, a great big thanks to the MS team for everything! You guys are fantastic!

    Anders — If you are running blog sites, Google is busy indexing your tag pages and all your search terms that may be set up. Probably your category pages too and your archieve pages. I have even found them into my wp-content/plugins directory for certain plugins that interact with the published pages directly.

    I read about a month ago on a ticket reply from Planet Ocean what they think Google is doing with the search terms but I don't remember at the moment.

    So you have a couple of choices. Use the Google webmaster tools along with disallows in robots.txt and wait several months for the junk to fall out.

    Or use a plugin like SEOUltimate or Yost's SEO for WordPress plugin to put noindex, nofollow on all the tags, search terms and so on. Google certainly takes the fun out of webmastering these days.

    As for Google remaining a free search engine. Those days may be coming to an end.

    As far as MS goes. Thanks Eugene for showing the naysayers in the SEO community they are wrong. And for providing your usual outstanding level of customer service.

    Hi Marshall,

    Thanks for your reply and your tips…

    In this case I'm actually talking about a store with 20,000 product pages, so ideally the index should be even larger :-)

    Anyways, the point here is that if Bing has indexed significantly less pages the SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC numbers will be way off… and will not be representative for the competition as seen in Google…

  35. thank you for the update I really appreciate it.

  36. Thanks for the detailed post, Eugene. Hoia head tööd!

  37. Great news, was so nice to update and have everything fully functional again!

    Great piece of software guys, I think we all appreciate your ongoing support and communication with your user base.

    My favorite toy is back :) Thanks guys

  39. Great to see that it is back given that we paid for that service.

    Can we select whether Rank Checker should use our local PC or your servers?

    I would not mind running it locally for my small no of keywords.

  40. Great update guys. The software development game is a fickle thing. So grateful to See the hard work you Aussies are putting in there.

    Keep up the great work, it really is appreciated.

  41. Just have one thing to say : THANK YOU !!!

    Thank you for providing us with such an amazing tool for only a one-time payment.
    Like many others, my (little) investment in Market Samurai has already paid itself more than tenfold. So using this amazing tool is 100% benefit !

    And thank you also for being so tranparent about the situation. I only wish all the suppliers could be like you !

  42. We really appreciate being kept in the loop Eugene. If you end up having to charge for Rank Tracker I hope the little people who don't use it often are not penalised with one price fits all.
    Thanks for your wonderful service.

  43. I'd love to see the ability to rotate via our own proxies rather than paying a monthly fee – I have plenty of servers out there I could use.

    The rank tracker is my most-used module of MS.

  44. GREAT JOB Eugene!!!!! Keep Moving FORWARD! :)
    MS is one from many best SEO software I ever use.

  45. Thanks for getting Market Samurai back and running again so fast.

    I don't blame you for not being able to absorb such monstrous claims yourself. $40,000 per day? Outrageous!

  46. Great to see such a good customer communication. Big companies can learn from you …
    Just realised that you guys are located in Nunawading (haha … that is close to Doncaster East :-).

  47. Thanks very much for the update and your hard work.

  48. Firstly, as an internet marketer, I would like to say that Market Samurai has been the single best investment that I have made!

    Nonetheless, I too have concerns about the accuracy of the SEOC data with Bing. As an example, one keyword I am targeting showed less than 1k competition on Bing and yet is showing 85k on Google. This is worrying if the data cannot be relied upon.

  49. 49

    Your customer service is the reason I'm still a customer. Please don't stop.

    Your great support and transparancy is the reason why you will always be superior to SEO Powersuite.

    Thanks and Congratulations to everyone at Market Samurai – you clearly have been burning the midnight oil by the barrel load and this sort of reaction and performance will only increase loyalty and encourage endorsements.

  51. I have held off for more than a year on buying Market Samurai, mainly because I was not sure how long it would continue to be supported. Having purchased many SEO programs in the past which do not survive changes to the search engines API's or terms it makes a change to see a product such as Market Samurai which has the committed support of its developers.

    The continued support the product has received in the past few days actually convinced me to go ahead and finally buy it and add my support.

  52. Well done for getting things fixed so quick.

    Rather than looking at charging for the Rank Tracker module as a negative, personally I think it could be a great opportunity to develop it further to provide a produce people are happy to pay monthly for.

    There are some great products out there that I always think 'I wish MS had that', such as SEM Rush – I would happily pay a monthly fee for the Rank Tracker module with more features that saved me from using/paying for other tools. With that in mind, Top-3 things I wish the Rank Tracker could do…

    1. Identify keywords a website is ranking for that have not been entered into the Rank Tracker (like SEM Rush).

    2. Have better output options for reports (such as branded PDF's for SEO Consultants).

    3. Keyword alerts when keywords we're targeting enter/leave the first page of Google.

    No rush, if you could get this sorted by next week, that would be great. ;o)

  53. You are the team! Thanks for fast update of program. Will be nice to add some more functions to “seo competition” also.

  54. Hi Eugene,
    As problems arise by everybody the quality of a company is basically how they are handling and trying to solve the issues. From that standpoint I give you guys a big thumbs up, especially the communication towards us as customers.

  55. Obviously if Bing has less pages indexed the SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC figures will be less accurate…

    Do you intend to re-instate Google for SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC?

    And finally, a great big thanks to the MS team for everything! You guys are

  56. Thank you for putting it all back together.. Great work. I cant imagine my work load without Market Samurai.. Thank you so much.. Keep it up.

  57. How many keywords can we track before being limited?

  58. As Market Samurai customers we've had it pretty good so far. Your product is awesome, the training excellent – and I love the affiliate program :-)

    I'd be happy to pay a subscription for the Rank Tracker – just don't make it unaffordable, guys …

    Thanks for all the hard work to fix this problem

    I got an email from Link Assistant mentioned “Google made no changes and nothing happened to it at all. More to that, whenever changes to Google happen in the future, SEO PoweSuite will keep working seamlessly”.

    Though I have no idea if there is any changes implemented by Google, I do hope that Market Samurai can be as good as before.

    Also, time to source for another good rank tracker.

  63. Thanks for the update & well done on you & the team pulling out all the stops to get this great app back up & running.

    For awhile there you had me worried… What did I do before Market Samurai?!?!?!

  64. You guys have an amazing product, and excellent training. I have 100% faith that you will be having our best SEO interests in mind in how you have rectified the situation.

  65. Tere,

    $40,000/day spread over 400,000 users = $3.00/MONTH/user.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'd be quite happy to pay $5.00/month to get RankTracker back!

    Robcarl replied:

    $40,000 day spread over 50,000 PAID users is $.80/day or $24/month for rank tracker IF everyone joins in…and many don't have a need.

    The cost estimate is probably based on existing usage/users so it won't decline appreciably unless active users drop out.

    Even so, the cost would not drop pro-ratably with the usage decline.

    If half the paid users were responsible for most of the rank tracker usage and were willing to pay the freight…$50/month as a fee looks more likely.

  66. Good to see everything working again. Keep up the good work guys. I've been a huge fan of MS for the last 2 1/2 years and it's the real up front honesty that adds to what you guys are doing.

    a few weeks ago, MS, offered a video to watch how to get many many backlinks in just a few minutes a day.

    below the correct version.

    unfortunately i was no longer running when i tried to watch it. i got the message that within a few weeks it would be offered again.

    can you tell me where i can watch it.

    perhaps send a link?

  83. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your communication and transparency on all the issues you have faced. It is refreshing.

    Although I am a paid user of the product, I do not have the need for the product all the time. Still, depending on your monthly charge, I will probably upgrade to that – just to support you. You are a great bunch of guys and I wish you the best.

    Thanks,

  84. Tere,
    I totally Understand the situation and Kudos to you and your team for providing a Part solution within 4 days. (Competitor had however fixed a hiatus of six months time for you).
    Really great for the effort!
    Hope to see the monthly subs on reasonable roll.

  85. What a wonderful news! I feel naked anytime I could not use certain modules in MS.

    Yes, I got an email from one of your competitors(I used their free trial and dumped it later) claiming that they are not affected that Market Samurai is up to something and I should get their services instead.

    Now most of the modules I constantly use are back. Normally I use keyword generation, SEO competition and article generation mostly. Other modules come in handy from time to time.

    Congrats for bringing back MS. Be encouraged and don't let your competitors edge you out.

    All the best.

  86. Hi Eugene,

  87. Thanks for the information, I was very preocupated about how was working the rank tracker this last days. Today, you said that I was fixed already, but I still have problems. The first project I tracked, perfect, but the second and the third return me no results, and with this I mean that all the tracking information til now disappeared. ¿This is normal or it's only happening to me?

  88. Great updates, thank you very much.

    With regards to the rank tracking module, can you please make it so people that don't choose to subscribe still can use the rank tracker module locally, I have under 10 sites to track ranks for, and only a couple keywords for each, so I wouldn't have any problems running it locally, and it wouldn't make sense for me to subscribe.

    If that's not possible I don't hope it would cost more than $5 to $10 for the sub, or maybe you could have different sized packages.

    Thank again.

  89. Hmmm, think post title is misleading to say the least. The only thing worth using in MS is Rank Tracker and it's now dead. Can anyone tell me what the alternative softwares that still work are?

  90. Congratulations on bringing back Market Samurai so quickly and apparently with being able to bring back most of the Google interactions.

  91. Fast comeback of Market Samurai functions is welcomed with a big smile!! :) I missed monetization feature the most.

  92. Eugene,
    Like many others, I also think that THE MOST IMPORTANT feature of Market Samurai is the rank tracker.
    However, the rank tracker is not really functioning when you want to use it with many domains and many keywords because Google don't let a single IP have a massive amount of queries in a short time.
    The built in proxies that the rank tracker is working with is one of the most essential features of Market Samurai, maybe even the most important.
    When do you expect this feature to be back to Market Samurai?
    Is there any way for me to import an array of proxies manually with Market Samurai?
    Kindly,
    ANSWER THIS QUESTION FOR ME!

  96. Täname, et uuendus. Pean tunnistama, et kuigi ma kaotasin lootuse tarkvara, kuid tundub, et te teete väga head tööd taastada oma funktsioone. Aitäh selle eest!

  97. Ma soovitan auaste tracker otsisügavus üsna piiratud ja et kasutajad meeles pidama, et automatiseeritud tarkvara otsida on vastu Google'i poliitika. Kasutaja analüüsi saab ühendada IP, otsi mustreid ja veebilehed. Ma ei tahaks olla minu saidi keelatud põhineb automatiseeritud otsing mustrid minu IP.
    Olen õppinud, et MS-eetika ja soovin, et nad olid 400,000 maksab liitumistasu. Ma võin ainult ette kujutada, millist toodet meil oleks, kui neil oleks selline tulu voolab. Kuigi ... Kas on midagi tõesti puudu? Tundub, et MS on liiga mures hoida meie kulud on liiga madal. Loodan, et liitumisleping põhinev mooduleid ei maksta MS tublisti üle nende hoolduskulud.
    Võib-olla see muutus aitab murda meid meie auaste jälgimise sõltuvused nii saame keskenduda muud moodulid, mis tegelikult asja.

    Ma pean ütlema, et see on kaalukaid kommentaari. Kui MS oli alustada üldise tellimuse / liikmeskond mudel, mõtle tüüpi arengu ettemaksete MS võiks olla. Isegi lihtsalt väike $ 47 / kuus on $ 18.8mil kuus. Alates arengu seisukohast see paneb oma igakuised kulud partneriks teistele ettevõtetele Google andmed ja arendustegevuse võimekuse kohta palju soodsamas olukorras. Isegi $ 37 / kuus võiks töötada, kuradit isegi 1 $ / kuus paneb sind tõusu rahavood, lisaks toote müügiga, (jaehind + järjepidevus) = igakuine rahavoog.

  99. Te olete täiesti uskumatu ja andekad programmeerijad ja ärimehed!

    Ma tõsiselt arvasin MS oli "surnud" mulle mitu nädalat või ehk kuudel. Taas olete töötanud imet. Palju, palju kiitus teile selle viimase feat legerdemain, ja nii palju enne ones ...

    Kuigi seal on kindlasti kavatse olla grumblers tahes kuutasu (mina nende seas), oleme me kõik meelevallas vägev Google. Kui see muutub mäng, mida me kõik peame kas kohanema või hukkuma. Noble Samurai ei tea, mida toob tulevik rohkem kui ülejäänud meist.

    Kuna sissemakstud täis ja väga õnnelik MS klient juba mitu aastat, olen absoluutselt vaimustuses kvaliteeti oma toodet, oma selge, pühendunud ja kirg ja väsimatu tee olete kõik läinud umbes muutes oma toode * * turg juht (vähemalt nii palju kui mina olen mures).

    Fakt on, muu märksõna tööriistad on sarnaselt toimetada. Kui meil hakata maksma, see on, kuidas see läheb.

    Et kõik õnnetu telkijatele seal, ma ütlen, et ma pigem maksma loodetavasti mõistlik kuutasu ja * on * MS kui ei ole seda üldse! Ausalt, ma olen üllatunud, et MS meeskond on suutnud pakkuda sellist suurepärase toote ja abi nii kaua * ilma * rakendades selliseid.

    Oleksin hooletu märkides, et kõige muu "tõsine" ja professionaalne märksõna tööriistad on juba ammu olnud kuumakse mudel - mõned küündides sadu dollarit kuus! Me kõik oleme hellitatud, et Noble Samurai on võtnud ta lõual pikka aega meie kõigi jaoks!

    Ma ei saa öelda, et see umbes liiga paljud ettevõtted, aga ... Ma usaldan "MS poisid" teha tark äriline otsus! Tegelikult on üks, mis kõige paremini nii ettevõtte ja MS kogukonnas.

    Nagu sa ei vastanud mu viimane postitus, sa jätkuvalt toetada Linux ja Mac OS, isegi kui sa saad osa Adobe Air?

    Ma olen ok maksma Rank Tracker moodul on mounthly alusel, kuid kukkumine toetust oma mitte Windows-users-klientidele oleks halb liikuda minu arvates.

    Ma loodan, et ma olen lihtsalt paranoiline, et üks!


    Miriam Parkinsoni vastas:

    Tere Alex, praegu Market Samurai on ehitatud Adobe AIR nii et me ei ole 100% kontroll, mida platvormid toetatud. Kahjuks AIR lõpetas toetamine Linux ja versioonid Mac OS enne Lumeleopard nii need juba ei toeta. Võite kindel olla, kuigi - me kõik oleme Mac kasutajad Noble Samurai, Eugene keeldub kasutada midagi muud! Seega, kui me eemalduda Adobe AIR me ei saa kunagi liiguvad platvormi, mis ei toeta meie mitte-Windowsi kasutajad.

  102. Neile, nagu mina, on artikkel turustamise, auaste tracker lisatakse kuutasu?

  103. Hello Eugene,

    Thanks for the update. I can also confirm as I'm sure you're aware that the SEO PoweSuite guys were trying to use this as a selling point for their software. Now while I did buy a full enterprise edition of their software a long time ago (at over $400) and it was very good, it was full of features that would be used by professional SEO companies but many people would find a bit overwhelming. Still I found using both that and Samurai worked for me.
    However the thing they failed to point out in their email was that they changed to a monthly charging system for updates a long time ago (after I had purchased) so they are on dodgy ground trying to compare their product with Samurai.
    I have also used Market Samurai far more as it is so easy to use. I still like both products but for value for money Market Samurai wins hands down.

    Hi John,

    The numbers don't need to come from the same place. 'Searches' is a measure of how many people search that keyword in Google. SEOC is a measure of how many competitors there are on the internet, not just on Google. While the SEOC number taken from Bing and from Google are not going to be identical, they are going to be directly proportional to each other – so a keyword with high competition numbers on Google will also have high competition numbers on Bing.

    Remember, SEOC is only used to rule out the high competition keywords, you then need to look at the SEO Competition matrix of the keywords that are left to check their strength of competition – this module will still show you the top 10 results in Google as this is the primary search engine that we, and our customers in general are optimizing for.

  105. Thank you for keeping us so fully informed. Good luck with all your efforts.

  106. Ladies and Gentlemen! After a little break… The show goes on! Not user yet? Please, take your ticket, the future of the best SEO tool, I called Market Samurai, is thrilling!

  107. Thank you, I appreciate the hard work you guys have put in.

    Just paar märkust:
    1. Kui vaadata SEOC eelistaksin ma teada, kui palju lehti järjestab Google kasutada neid märksõnu, sest google on ikka koht olema liiklus (võibolla ma ei mõista, mis SEOC on, aga nii, nagu ma aru saan on et mida suurem on väärtus, seda suurem konkurents ja ma tõesti ei hooli sellest, et palju sellest, kuidas paljud bing järjestatud saidid kasutavad kw, kuid ma ei hooli väga palju, kui palju Google järjestab veebilehed kasutavad seda).

  116. Very pleased that the system is back again. Thank you guys for this quick back up!!! You guys ROCK

  117. I admit, I was a little bit discouraged at the beginning of all of this. The first announcement(blog post) did discouraged me a lot because all I got from it was that you would use Bing instead of Google, now thank god you have written this post!

  118. Thank you Eugene for the update. I've read remarks from your competitors that make the situation sound so bad. It is nice to hear what is really going on and I appreciate the time you took to write and post this update.

  119. You are and will always be the bomb when it comes to all that you do with Market Samurai. For the price of admission and what type of service we get, this will always be worth the wait if google burps again. Also although another expence would be unwanted the ROI far surpasses double the price for what ever you charge. Now by saying that I hope you are able to find a solution one that is best for all. This is the best matrix research tool available bar nun. Love ya.

  120. 120

    Top job getting things working again,it shows how even the most stable internet business modle can be changed by Google`s whim
    Keep up the great work!

  121. Thanks for working quickly and effectively. MS is a great tool and I think adding optional subscription modules might be a viable business model for NS, so you do not have to rely on sales alone.

    I appreciate very much all that I got for the one time fee I paid long ago – there were so many updates and upgrades – Exceptional. Many others would certainly have issued some paid upgrades during this time!!

    So, again, THANKS and I hope you find a really good way to carry on.

  122. Thanks for bringing back such a useful tool. Some things that i use it for is the rank checker. No problem separating from whole package.

  123. I am one of the “Little” guys. I do not mind using MS from my machine and do not use MS the same way the “Big Dogs” do.

    Even at that, I would gladly pay a couple of bucks a month (or $25 a year) to be sure you stay around.

    What you might do though, because, as you said, (and it's beyond the technical capacity of the average user) you might send instructions on how to do that set up.

    One hell of a job in a very short time span!!
    Thank you!

  124. Eugene,

    I think this has to fall into the Sh*! happens category. You guys are doing a great job keeping us going and keeping us informed.

    If it's loyal customers you're after, you've earned one.

    Looking forward to seeing the details of the monthly service.

  125. I bought MS in August of 2008 during the 30 Day Challenge. You had one module. I have seen you grow the tool and your business with integrity and great customer service. Do what you must, I trust you with my dollars. Great post. Stay with it and stay well.

  126. Just curious: I got the most recent update and there was some type of addition a-something, but I hit the button too fast and don't know what was added. Can someone explain what it was?

  127. 127

    Great job guys with getting MS back up and running.
    Your customer service is the best.

  128. Great example of moving to find new cheese! Congratulations to the team at Market Samurai.

  129. That's awesome guys! Market Samurai has been a staple product and one of my favorites not to mention one of the most raved about keyword research and competitive research products in the market.

    Thanks guy,
    Bryan Dulaney

  130. Hi guys thanks for the update. I too wondered what I'd done before Market Samuri!
    Hopefully you get Rank Tracker up & running again soon….as for those charges….are you going to scale them by use ie 15 keywords or less = band a) 30 keywords or less = band b) and so on…?
    Anyway – great work guys!

  131. I am fine with having to pay for the Ranking module separately. Not really a big deal there, so long as this feature is also kept inside of Market Samurai for smaller queries of 10 or so keywords.

    I tend to use Market Samurai purely for keyword research anyways, so this isn't something which inhibits my business. I already use a monthly subscription based tool for rank checking anyways. If you guys are going to put out a tool that can compete with something like Web CEO for rank tracking though, then.. I may just need to cancel my subscription with them and move to yours!

    Cheers, and keep up the great work!

  132. Can you guys set the record straight on the mixed message coming from the SEO PowerSuite camp?

    …”So let us once again disprove the rumor: Google made no changes and nothing happened to it at all. More to that, whenever changes to Google happen in the future, SEO PoweSuite will keep working seamlessly…”

  133. Market Samurai on vaja minna SOTSIAALNE! I love market samurai, but as I said in a comment on Smart Passive Income blog, “SEO as we know it” is going to die. Here's the quote, I believe it's one of better comments I've left, so I have to repost it here:

    “A lot of important information in a single post. Market Samurai was indeed a worthy service, and I believe that they will continiue to be so.

    I am not sure that Market Samurai will survive for long with the upcoming Google changes. And I don't refer to the current changes, but I am thinking ahead and about the changes that are about to come.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not a prophet and I don't have visions, but in late 2011 and now 2012 Google is becoming ever more social. That's why I am wondering why you Pat don't have “+1″ in your Sharebar.

    Google Plus will integrate completely into the search, making Google one of the most profound Search Social Networks. If you are Apple user, you know how well Apple products integrate well into each other, Google figured out that this trend works well.

    Imagine how Smartphones “killed” the need for cameras, because Camera became a feature of a Smartphone, leading it to a better product. Also Smartphones have a potential to kill Audio Players, because Audio Players are “feature” of Smartphone.

    Now transition this to Google World. Google Plus is a feature of SEARCH. Google Reader is integral part of your search experience! Picasa is integral part of your SEARCH. Result for 100 million Google Plus users (and will grow on daily basis), will actually recieve completely different search results than all other users who aren't under Google Experience Umbrella.

    The explosive growth of Google Plus is frightening, and will render Googles tools, like KeyWord Tool, completely obsolete as the time passes by. This will make Market Samurai viable tool for next period, maybe up to two years, but after that, too many results will be “socially enhanced”.

    Google knows that the money lies in “social graph” and unlike Facebook, they will be the first to figure out how to monetize that data. This is my bet.

    I love Market Samurai, but as the time passes by, I feel and see that “SEO as we know it” is going to die.”

    Link to the whole post is here: http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/is-this-the-end-of-the-market-samurai-dynasty-direct-answers-from-the-ceo/

    I can't wait to see future upgrades of Market Samurai, as I still intend to recommend it to my friends and clients. You gave a rocking year, and thanks to your video tutorials I've learned a lot about SEO and saved hours upon hours of learning and cramming.

    You've left immense impact on my online marketing knowledge, I want to thank you once again for that.

  134. Hats off to Market Samurai … Again!

    One may suppose in limiting free queries, Google itself is responding to certain kinds of heavy free use of its servers, perhaps (for all I know) a discovery its decision-makers made as Google looks more closely at dividing the virtual search world by locally-relevant criteria … in which milieu search volume per locale is typically rather less than the global sum.

    Market Samurai has developed a reputation for keeping abreast of changes in an ever-changing environment, yet at low cost to its customers. Thank you again, this time especially for your recent Herculean efforts.

    “Free” rank tracking (not that it was ever entirely free to everybody) will be missed, but there seems little point in fighting against gravity here.

  135. Thank you Eugene for placing us all with the full up todate knowledge of whats happening and what is going on with our MS tool. It only stands to reason that woith such a great tool as Market Samurai that it would not be just dropped with so many users of the software.

  136. Thanks so much for all you've done. I'm an occasional user, very happy with the service and how hard you work to keep things running smoothly when bumps come along the way.

  137. I just purchased MS (yeah me)! I actually was doing the trial during your outages but thought those to be a temporary issue. Regardless, I still think it's a viable product at the cost.

    My question though: I have been involved with brokering large amounts of data and know that once you buy data it quickly becomes dated (pardon the pun). What will the schedule for updates be to your data base? Weekly, Monthly?

    How is this different from SEOMoz or any other rank reporting tool? You might not be able to answer that but I'm curious if pulling from a ranking database is how it's done or is it more real time.

    I wish you all the best with your dilemma. Sounds like you are handling the best way posible.

    Chris

  138. Excellent news. Thanks a lot.

  139. Just a short note to commend the Market Samurai team for keeping us in the loop and working as hard as they do to solve problems. Dealing with all the Google changes must be challenging and frustrating.

    Given all the updates they do to the core application (updates that have great documentation), I think the company is well within their rights to charge a monthly fee for rank tracking. Sites like SEOmoz do. I hope it's not too much and as a previous poster set, is tiered so that those who use more, pay more.

  140. Thank you so much for all the hard work guys. I assume everything is alright with Article Samurai as I use it for my clients in local online advertising.

  141. Stop worrying about the cheap users. It's understandable that they're going to be the loudest when you ask them to pay for something, but you can't please everyone all the time no matter what you do.

    Charge for the whole package. If you've got 400,000 users, charge each one $5 a month. That's enough to cover your costs? (400,000 x $5 = $2,000,000 per month or $66,667 per day) That'll cover your data buying costs and leave you profits too which you guys deserve.

    If someone can't afford $5 per month then they're lying.
    :)

  142. Will Market Samurai become a monthly subscription product?

    I have come to depend on Market Samurai for my Keyword projects so my concern is not that you may ask for an annual or monthly payment, rather that you remain successful enough to fund your excellent maintenance program and improvements.

    All of us long-term customers are being kept going by your ability to recruit a steady stream of new recruits paying for a license. There are a finite limit to the SEO SEM market and when recruitment starts to tail off I will be happy to pay an additional basic license fee and so should anyone else who uses Market Samurai as a business tool.

  143. Glad to see you guys got it all worked and and thanks for all your support

  144. Glad all is working.

    It is very typical for business software to be a one time purchase price and 10% annual software maintenance in order to be provided with updates, not upgrades (ie. 3.xxx to 3.zzz, not 3.x to 4.x). I'm very new to this product, but it is apparent to me it needs to be constantly updated and worked on in order to continue to function in the very fluid environment it works in. I'd be perfectly willing to pay maintenance on it. You can't be paid one time and work forever for nothing more. That is not sustainable.

  146. So glad you are in recovery mode! So many of our sites got hit hard when Google changed their algorithesms back in October of last year.

    Great Stuff…!! I am quite confident that whatever fee structure you develop will be fair and equitable, the important thing being that you can operate with some incentive to continue offering your service.

    Business is always facing challenges ans we are in business to overcome challenges.

    I suggest you are doing a great job in dealing with this one.

  148. Congratulations to all. I knew that you could with this problem. It was only a matter of time. Market Samurai is by far the best tool on the market. I love this tool. Thank you again.

  149. Thanks for the updates. It's quite amazing what you've delivered with no charge for upgrades — Market Samurai is worth every penny, and I'm sure the new rank tracking service will be the same. Thank you for the excellent product and for keeping us all informed along the way.

  152. This is Great news that you were able to bring back Market Samurai so quickly and with most of the Google functions still working, I'm glade to work with a company that can bounce back so well, after taking a hit like this from a large player like Google.

    Keep up the Great work!

  153. Thanks guys, you're efforts are greatly appreciated. I've been here almost since the beginning and have lived through all of the assorted growth spurts and problems. MS has been invaluable to me and my keyword research.

    Seems to me that way back in the beginning rank tracker was much as it is now. Run to many checks and get cut off by google for a few hours. It worked then and it works now. However you created a position junky when I could do unlimited keyword rank checking.

    Funny tho, it didn't add much to the bottom line as there was no focus. Lol, runem all and see what's working. While I don't think going back to the beginning is a great thing it will, at least, make me focus on the keywords making the best money and not all of the keywords just out of curiosity. After a few weeks you mostly know whether a kw is a winner or loser. No sense to continue checking the losers.

    A big list of great proxies would be appreciated tho. Assuming the proxy part still works the way it used to. ;)

    Make a list of proxies public and see how long they remain “great”? You need to source your own, the moment a proxy becomes too well known if becomes a waste of time.

    Cynical One replied:

    Actually, MS still says it has proxy servers. If you check settings under proxies there is a check box that says “Use built in proxy servers” but I'm wondering if these even still exist in MS.

    If not a list of proxies would still be a good thing. The guys at MS have much more knowledge of proxies than I do. All of them I find are slower than hell so a list of the better ones provided ny MS would be a great help.

    BTW, everything free on the net decreases in value with over usage.

    Paul B replied:

    The point I'm trying to make (all be it not very well) is that they wouldn't be supplying YOU with a list of proxies, they'd be supplying their 400,000 users. Unless that is a very very big list then whatever they include will soon become as you put it, slower than hell or worse.

    Find your own under utilised ones and you can get away with half a dozen at most. Alternatively there are paid proxy services out there, I've been using one and rank tracker is running fine.

  154. Thanks for the hard work, I know how intricate and stress software development is let alone how frustrating it is when an external source such as Google makes changes that you have no control over. The fact the you let us know right away what was wrong fixed and communicated so quickly and thoroughly continue to make me a big fan of Market Samurai!

  155. I know so many companies that wold have run at the first sign of trouble. You guys are a class act, and for a one-time payment kind of deal this is more than a bargain; it's almost steal :D.

    But seriously, if we look at this objectively, the only thing we're (partially) missing is the Rank Tracker. Overall this is the best SEO-Keyword research-…etc, combo that exists nowadays.

    Keep up the great work and you deserve way more than you ask (at least I made “way more” than what I paid for your service ;)).

    It is good to know I am working with professionals.
    All the best

  158. 158

    I agree that the Market samurai was the best internet marketing tool, thanks for that. What i totally disagree is that the mixing of google-bing information is giving accurate and even decent results as i have notify to the staff showing several comparisons to the seoc data provided by MS and those found in the actual bing search and allow me to say that is totally messed up!.

    Like some one said before is very hard to compare the size of the indexed pages that google has with those of bing-yahoo.

    Im very aware of your efforts to overpass this big issue but is not transparent to make us believe that you have made the best decisions by combining the two data sources to offer anything similar that MS was delivering before.

    And sure thing is that the most of the MS users have this specific matter in mind, as many of them are asking, will the seoc, the title and the url number of indexed pages going back with the google data? if the answer is no, you guys as savvy as you are, by now just throw over a good piece of software.

    As far we as users we are doomed to walk blind, trusting on what you say, or to find a way to invest on decent and reliable data like this market more than many other requires.

  159. Thanks Market Samurai…

    For communicating so clearly and quickly with all of us.

    It's refreshing to see. Not many companies care as amuch as you folks seem to. It is appreciated!!

    ~ Louie

  160. While, at times, I've been frustrated w/ NS, the decision to offer rank tracking as an up-charge, monthly fee module within the MS software, while continuing to extend the basic service w/o additional charge, is a high integrity move by your team.

    Reality is that MS is a terrific tool for the money. Thanks for the continued effort in keeping the software effective, and affordable, as the environment of the web evolves.

  161. Amazing work as well as communication and transparency. The way you've handled this entire event should be the “counterpoint” to the big companies out there who cover stuff up, then lie, then finally admit the truth, then scramble with bad communication, then get defensive, etc.!

    I was already a loyal (paid) customer, and this clinches it.

    I absolutely hate paying a monthly fee for software, but yours is one of the few that we'd do that for – it's that good and saves that much time.

    So yes, it is great that your software was a one-time cost. But to agree with a couple people above, with all the work necessary to keep things working, not to mention adding features, a maintenance charge would be completely understandable.

    I have to spend $50 or so every couple years for new versions of Quicken financial software. I view them as a necessary evil, and don't love them as a company, but still do it otherwise they simply don't support any of the online features. Although I moan about it, I do understand that they do a bunch of development to stay current and it's only fair to do it that way.

    They don't even try to hide it as maintenance – they just say “buy now, you have until April xx until your software will no longer work.”

    We pay $5 or $6 per month for a program in this space that does one thing that MS does. They hid that in fine print when we bought – I thought maintenance was only to get new features, and I figured we would decide if we needed them or not at that time. But after their initial period, I discovered that the maintenance was necessary or it simply would not work any more.

    I don't like the way they handled it, but we are paying their fee.

    Would I pay $5 per month for MS, with 10x more functionality, integrity like you have shown from the beginning, new features, great training, and a great community?

    Ummm, yes, I think so!

    Hi!

    I've been using Market Samurai for some time now and all I have to say is that I can't “live” with it!

    I'm happy to see that almost all issues were solved.

    I have a question regarding SEOC.

    I was using this metric to filter keywords that have less than 30.000 competing sites in google…

    I have no problem in using numbers from Bing but the problem is that there a significant difference in numbers… I'll give you an example for one keyword in my niche:

    “online relationship counselling”

    SEOC in Google is 63400 (for english language and for the US)

    SEOC with BING is 541…

    The question is: Is there a maximum number for BING SEOC that we can use a reference?

    I did some number crunching and it looks like 15,000 SEOC is a good filter value to work with when using Bing data – Miriam

    I understand your reasons for adding the fees for the rank tracking service, and I'm more than willing to pay for this service, however it raises a few concerns.

    None of the other (one time fee) keyword research tools have rank checking built in, so that fact gave Market Samurai a clear advantage over its competition.

    There's the free rank checker plugin in Firefox, but it doesn't keep a history, and it doesn't have the nice charts. So Market Samurai's rank tracker was better than the free stuff out there.

    However, as a paid monthly service, you introduce a whole different class of competition and a whole different class of features.

    Most paid services are fully automated.

    The rank tracking module requires zero brainpower to run, but it does require us to open the software daily, click the button and wait quite a whole.

    This is a significant disadvantage when comparing yourself to your new competition(monthly paid rank tracking services).

    Some services will show more information about your keywords and point out opportunities. For example, oftentimes there are keywords that you already rank on page 2 for that have quite a bit of traffic. Other paid services will show the traffic stats right next to your rankings, so you can very easily pick out the big opportunities.

    There's a host of other features that many of the paid rank tracking services offer.

    So although I understand your need to change your fee structure as a self preservation measure, and I have no problem paying a monthly fee, I hope you realize that as a paid service, you're being held up to a completely different class of standards.

    Please make your new paid rank tracking service competitive with other paid ranking services, not just in pricing, but also in features and convenience.

    Don't forget you have a new class of competition now.

    Thanks for the thoroughness Rob, yes I for one would pay a mothly fee but if funtionality, useability, better metrics are found elsewhere then loyalty or not doesn't feed my kids.
    Theres a great idea for the free firefox plugin for someone to create a basic history download and small basic chart.
    Anyway Thanks again

    side note
    Seems to be low responses from the MS team considering this is a major issue?

  165. This should help Market Samurai users' spirits up… something that's really needed especially after reading that very discouraging email from Link Assistant. :|

    You are the most un-greedy people in the space. The fact that you give access to such an amazing tool for no subscription fee is just unheard of.

    I can just imagine what hell you have been through in the past week. It is very impressive how fast you have bounced back. You all should be very proud of yourselfs.

  168. 168

    Why don't you offer a Rank Tracker version that works like SERPAlertPro? You can learn about this by searching for it by name at the Warrior Forum. It is software that works in the background on your own machine and provides analysis, etc. It is a one off payment. I think it is a good idea and will work fine for non-power users. For those people, proxies would be needed. I would rather buy such a product from you because, with your resources, you could create a better product and support it better. As I said, this could be just a version of Rank Tracker, ie, you could also have a monthly subscription for those that need more power, added convenience, etc.

  169. Looks good guys. One comment I do have (if I read it right) – you have 400,000 users and only 50,000 of them paying customers?

    There seems to be an opportunity there for scaled fees, ie $ = very basic functionality and $$$ = full functionality. Sure there are benefits to a time limited trial but maybe a range of MS options/packages might help ease the burden and still keep the majority happy?

    I do agree that other SEO software that uses the local PC internet connection results in serious bandwidth degradation – and not just to Google. After using other packages I always have a much slower connection to websites for the next few hours. This is not good as it implies that my ISP “must know” that I am carrying out a lot of automated searches.

    Your approach wins through for me.

  170. Thanks for the detailed update!

    I just used Market Samurai again last night after downloading the latest version. So far, everything seems to be working fine. I love the fact that you all are so committed to this excellent software, and that you've already done so much to ensure that we can continually use it, even in the face of Google's changes.

    Thanks for making things clear about Bing's database also. All in all, I'm still impressed with Market Samurai, and how the software team has handled and is continuing to handle this problem. Tänan.

  171. Thanks for the updates Eugene, I look forward to seeing whats is going to happen with regards to rank tracking the other changes are all positive and Market Samuria is still the best value for money there is!

  172. It looks like my previous comment didn't post. Not sure why.

    Anyways, just wanted to say that I really appreciate what you all are doing. Market Samurai is excellent software, and continues to impress. I love how dedicated the software team is to resolving these issues, and I think they've done an excellent job in the face of what's happened.

    I'm continually impressed. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication, so that we can all benefit from using Market Samurai!

    Hi Guys
    Have you seen these allegations by CEO from SEO Powersuite:

    We're getting 100s of worried requests from users so we decided to explain this web rumor.

    Rumors of a drastic Google algo change started spreading after another SEO software house officially announced their software stopped working with Google. What Market Samurai told its users is, “Several days ago, Google made some significant technical changes to its services” which made it impossible to work with.

    Now hundreds of ex-customers of Market Samurai and our own users write to our support: Is SEO PowerSuite working? Is it safe to buy SEO PowerSuite license now when other tools are failing to work?

    The answer is YES, your software is working and will work with all search engines (Google as well, until the end of Google.) We are able to guarantee that SEO PowerSuite is the safest SEO software to invest in.

    So – right, SEO PowerSuite keeps working. The thing is, what is proclaimed a Google's technical change doesn't look so and has never been confirmed by anyone outside Market Samurai team. Our team of search engines experts confirms no changes to Google algos – and the speaking evidence for that is the seamlessly working SEO PowerSuite.

    No other reasons for Market Samurai's software failure have ever been officially named. However, more realistic reasons were suggested by their former users, assumed by many SEOs on all kind of Internet forums – and never commented on by the Samurai representatives. So the actual reasons for the fail are assumable and lie in a strategic error at the early stage of designing the software architecture. Our experts say, the estimate of fixing such error to restore an SEO tool to a fully working condition is about half a year.

    Seeing that now Samurai is planning to switch to Bing instead of Google, we assume the estimate is right.

    So let us once again disprove the rumor: Google made no changes and nothing happened to it at all. More to that, whenever changes to Google happen in the future, SEO PoweSuite will keep working seamlessly.

    As many know, for 7 years on the market Link-Assistant.Com software has been working reliably. And we can guarantee reliable work of all SEO PowerSuite tools in future, with a team of engineers and analysts monitoring search engines every day.

    Thanks

  174. Thank you for the great update and following up on the problems with Market Samurai. There are a lot of vendors out there that do not understand the concept of customer service. You obviously do and you continue to prove that over and over again.

  175. 175

    I'm personally very glad that the Market Samurai team has everything under control. This is still my Go-To tool for initial market and keyword analysis, and I don't see that changing until they begin charging for modules that were included in the original purchase.

    You see… there is an issue of a contract made upon purchase of the product (I'm glad I took screenshots) and the promises made constitute a contract. Changing that agreement now could be interpreted as a breach of that contract.

    I completely understand that you're experiencing costs greater than you anticipated in the beginning. That's the nature of business (not just Internet Marketing, all business). I'm sure that many here will also agree that we shouldn't be penalized for late in the game updates due to necessary modifications and adjustments to your sources of information.

    I say… live up to your agreements that are already in place, and make the necessary adjustment to your pricing for all new purchasers. If that means that there is a monthly subscription for All New Purchasers, then so be it.

    That is really the only fair approach, considering that those of us that purchased early on had to pay for the privilege of being “Beta Testers” for all this time.

    Sorry Guys, but it's not right to penalize the very people that helped get you where you are today. Make the necessary adjustment to your pricing structure applicable to those that are purchasing your product from this point on.

  176. 176

    The best thing to do it would seem, is to leave rank checking on the local machine for those who want to take the responsibility and offer a separate high-volume service on a monthly fee for those who need or want it. Failing that, offer a “lite” rank tracker for free and a “pro” heavy-use version for a monthly fee. It is apparent that a relatively few very high-volume users are causing the problem and it hardly seems right to penalize the rest of us.

  177. 177

    Why not make the rank tracker wholly based on customer's networks with the ability to enter private or public proxy IPs and ports? This seems the most cost-effective and efficient solution for everyone.

    Kim@beginners guitar lessons replied:

    I agree, I don't use it for more than 6 sites so I could easily run it on my own network.

  178. 178

    Can I use Rank Tracker on my local network?
    As indicated above, Rank Tracker has been temporarily updated to make use of your local computer and we'll soon be offering a revised service that again pulls data from our servers. Checking a moderate to high volume of keywords from your local computer can result in a temporarily degraded Google service for all those on the same network as you. In corporate environment this should generally be avoided.

    I might sound rough, but that doesn't really answer the question, which is: Can I use Rank Tracker on my local network? … so a Yes or a No would really be an answer. Ok at the moment works locally, but will we have the option to “take our own risk” and check data locally? (hello proxy!)

  179. Good job in keeping up updated. One of the things that had frustrated our team was the manual clicks required of the SEOC, SEOTC, SEOUC numbers.
    The automatic display will be a great time saver.
    By the way, as a frequent user and very appreciative of the frequent updates, we would not mind going to an annual subscription model (ideally less than $100) in order to keep the quality up.
    Best Luck

  180. Kudos to MS team for bringing back Market Samurai so quickly

  181. I personally want to say a BIG THANK YOU for your support and for the quick turnaround you guys have done for a small organization.

    Can't believe how quick you have managed to get this fully working again with most modules.

    From my initial investment of Market Samurai I have saved thousands of hours, and a shit load of money to.

    I would be more than happy if you were to offer this as a monthly service because of this powerful Resource.

    With all the changes that Google has made in the last 12 months etc… you should not be apologising to us, WE should be thank full for having a trusted honest team that is here to provide the best training, advice, and tools to grow our business further and for that THANK YOU

    Sorry for rant but needs to be said

    Cheers

    Tere,

    I really appreciate the truth from the team. Keep up the Good work. I am a newbie to Market Samurai and the world of SEO, but I am sure of one thing, this company is there for the long haul. Aitäh.

  183. 183

    You guys are awesome. I now just need to learn how to harness MS's power!!!

  184. This is complete hogwash in my opinion. Many other, similar, program continue to work fine, particularly with their Rank Trackers. It seems to me to be some short-sided coding at play here.

    And as a further insult, we need to rely on Bing data in certain cases? Google is where it's at. I could care less what Bing has to tell me.

  185. Honesty is the cornerstone of every business, so thanks for sharing all information with us so openly…

  186. You might want to look at the speed controls that some other stand alone rank tracking software use and do something like what they do (search delays, etc.). It does slow down the rank tracking, but it keeps you from putting a heavy load on Google's server and also from having your computer temporarily banned from using Google services.

  187. I must say you're great guys. I used MS for more than 2 years before I purchase it (I mostly use keyword research). I purchased another tools, but I didn't find good and reliable as MS. With this last update, I was worry you become late in resolving the issue, But it's no wonder you're so fast in fixing that issue.

    Tänan.

  188. I'd like to make a recommendation for the rank tracker module. Since right now, it is using the local PC to perform the searches, can you enable some form of human emulation (configurable delay) so that it doesn't blast all the searches at Google as fast as it can? This will minimize the impact to other users of Google search on the same network. Great product. It's a shame about the negative impact of Google's changes.
    Tänan.

  189. Great to have MS back and functioning more on automatic again.

    As for recent google changes im sure its a part of their continueing evil deception tactics to not let anyone that isnt paying their adwords side of the buisines, have any real data. Google for the past year has moved to be move of ANTI website owner search engine then ever before, and worse if your an affiliate or trying to earn online. Google has made it their prime directive to screw everyone from making money off their engine, except themselves.

    I mean they even stole the “like” feature from Facebook and forced users now to use the google plus 1 feature.

    Google in my opinion will continue to kill any opportunity for making money that includes taking keyword and ranking data till the DOJ steps in but they wont cause their funded by google inc.

    The days of a free internet with the ability to earn from google is over, google will make sure that it will all be gone by the end of this year, and will be even worse if the republicans get into power again as Google Inc is the biggest repulican support this year making them almost untouchable and able to screw with the internet in anyway they want to. And they do to effect constant changes to reduce everyones ability, unless they pay the evil google more ,money.

    I miss the days when Google was for us little guys and on our side, now their in with the elite and hate all of us and will continue to steal profits from the world.

    Good to see use of the Bing API, and BING engine as i believe bing will eventually (because of underhanded google tactics) be the search engine to rank for and get data metrics from that will allow real world analysis.

    Thanks MS for continued advances and continued updates allowing us all to mine the data reasonable well and get back to earning off the internet.

  190. Hey, good to know you're on the game again!
    I'm not so confident about Bing option for Seoc. Bing doesn't have so many pages indexed as Big G to make a good comparison. You kept your clients informed during all the time and that showed how professional and serious you are. Keep on like that!
    Aitäh!

  191. I'm glad to see Market Samurai back up, definitely one of the BEST pieces of software that I've purchased. Hoia head tööd!

  192. 192

    You guys are %Q#$ AWESOME!!

    As a business owner, I am floored by how fast and completely you have dealt with and solved a major interruption to your business. You should be very proud.

    As a paid customer, I appreciate the timely notice, updates and detailed explanations you have provided.

    Really guys, I don't think it could have been handled better. Congrats!

    Bill

  193. Will there be options to buy Rank Tracker for each user, as I personally use other software for this purpose and would not use it inside of MS?

  194. I am a little confused here. You state you have 400,000 users but only 50,000 have paid to use the software? Was this a typo?

    If not, it appears a large part of your problem is that you have been too generous. It is all right to have a 30 or even a 90 day free trial period for your software but after that those free users need to pay to use the software.

    If you have been able to do all you have done with just 50,000 paid users while supporting the 350,000 free users, think how much more you could do if you converted the free users to paid users. It appears to be past time to tell the free users to convert to paid users and dumped those who continued to want a free ride from you and your paid users.

    Your operating costs might drop drastically if you eliminated the 88% of your users who are not paying for the software and using your servers.

    Sorry, free users, but at some point it becomes time to pay for the ride or get off and walk.

    Paul B replied:

    I 100% agree with this, I was shocked by those figures. It's no wonder you've upset the Big G if you're running queries for 400,000 users from a cloud infrastructure funded by 50,000!

    Just imagine how much extra infrastructure (IPs at least) you could have had in place if they were all paying customers? Or to look at it the other more realistic way, imagine how much less of a burden you'd be on Google if you were only hitting them for paid users?

    Bin the freeloaders, if people don't buy within say a 60 day free trial then they're never going to. Even if this isn't enough to get things back to where they were then I'd vote for an annual maintenance subscription like others have said. Your software is one of only a couple of tools I trust enough to use on a regular basis, everything about it has been superb to date and I'd hate to see the whole thing wrecked at the expense of a few cheapskates.

    Unfortunately if these numbers are true, it isn't “a few cheapskates”. It appears that 88% of MS users are getting a free ride.

    I was in support of an annual maintenance fee for the software to support development.

    Now I say it is time to purge the user base of whatever portion of the 350,000 free members who refuse to convert to a paid copy before talking about additional fees to those who have paid.

    Then I would again support a small annual fee for maintenance again.

    Only if they remove the 350,000 free members from the system.

    Clean house, then look for a strong continuing source of funding for future development.

    I use MS daily and would hate to see it fail as other software has in the past. I don't mind paying a small annual fee for updates, but only if the free users who have used the software for more than 90 days are removed from the system.

    Ed

  196. Good to hear that MS is back in action.

  197. MS is worth the once off fee for the competition analysis alone. It's the simple reality of business that sometimes charges for services rise and I think it's pretty clear here that the Noble Samurai team aren't doing this deliberately.

    Of course, I would rather not pay a monthly fee but the alternative may well be to go to other providers who charge exponentially more.

    Keep up the good work Noble stable you remain the best value tool out there

    Hi Eugene,

    You guys are absolutely AWESOME! Thank you for all your hard work to respond to google's change and to do so with such speed and thorough thought.

    You guys set a new benchmark in delivering a quality product and service with the way you handle things and also in the clear, concise and informative method of communication.

    Hope Google doesn't read these posts and take you guys away to work for them!

    Cheers!

  199. 199

    Hi, I have suggested this several times before and I dont understand why you guys have never implemented it.

    Adding a server query delay option into the admin settings would allow users to run MS from their local machine without tripping to many queries at once.

    SEO Elite and Keyword Elite have had this for years.

    You can adjust the server delay to suit your needs so the more kwds the longer the delay and it saves your ip getting blocked from Google.

    Given how great MS is Im sure this wouldnt be that big a deal to add in and would save so much hassle for users to stop us getting u=our ip's blocked.

    Hope fully you'll add this, it really would be good.

    On
    Daniel replied:

    Tere,

    I agree. Just add Advanced configuration dialog for adding some human emulation for google requests – like configurable random delay from 0 to 100 seconds for each request.

    Possibly some more features like visiting home page of google before doing searches, clicking some of the search results …

    Since you have done great job so far, it should be rather easy to add this feature which would enable more reliable rank tracker and other features.

  200. As usual you have provided exceptional customer service and dealt with a massive problem with minimal service interruption. I was wondering how your product as good as it is, was going to stay away from monthly prices knowing full well, Google was eventually going to pull the plug.

    I have made tens of thousands of dollars off of a beta price of 67 when Samurai was released to a select few before it went widespread.

    It continues to be, and is one of the best investments I have ever made, and you guys and your updates are unbelievable on a one time price.

    Hats off to the Samurai team, and I commend you on excellence in what you have done with this product, and the tutuorials made available to its users.

    Its a bit of a downer to pay monthly, but it is what it is, and beyond your control.

    thanks guys!

    Ok, im testing now the keyword research module and… excuse me about this but Market samurai is now plain crap… why
    the results of the keyword research module are useless, a good word of advice, anyone relying on this data just don't do it, it screw up every single research i was doing.

    A shame i think if MS remain with this data is simply useless
    You guys better develop the tool again or accept a total fail…

    Tere,

    A suggestion to make the rank tracker still available free. Why don't you consider enabling proxy setting by users option, which pulls the data from proxy IP's instead of local servers ?

    This same concept is being used by Link-assistant's rank tracker.

    Sorry but using Bing for SEOC, SEOLC etc. just does not wash with me. I have been testing for 2 days now and there is absolutely no correlation (as you say above) between Google and Bing competition and traffic levels, at least not on my local market.

    I may see on a specific phrase 100,000 SEOT (Google) and absolutely no competition (less than 1000) in SEOLC (Bing). When I check the local Google database by doing a simple search in Google for the same phrase it comes up as more than 1,000,000 pages having that keyword in the page. If I had believed the data MS was giving me I would have attacked this keyword. But at over 1 million Google pages this would have been suicide.

    And the argument that Bing has more pages indexed than Google just cannot be true – the data MS is showing me for each and every search term proves this to be completely flawed as an argument.

    Also, you say 30% share for Bing in the US market. Perhaps, but here in France it's less than 8%

    >>> Bing data is completely useless to us if you are using Google for SEOT, and if your local market is dominated by Google, which is the case for me.

    As a paying customer I must really push you (as are several people above) to get Google data back for SEOC and SEOLC, etc.

    Without this data coming from Google – and it pains me to say – I would have to leave MS for good and find another solution.

    Hi MS team

    Could we get an answer from you on this issue?

    For me this is the key : I use MS 90% for keyword analysis and competition study, and 10% to check rankings.

    Moreover, I am finding that the SEOC and SEOLC figures are not working, even for Bing. I can see 10,000 pages in competition for a specific phrase on SEOLC: when I click on the number to get the link over to Bing, Bing is telling me 100,000+ results in its local database.

    So I don't know how I can possibly use this data

  216. Thank you very much for your effort to bring MS up. Kudos to whole team of Market Samurai!

  217. Hi Eugene, Hi Ben,

    Firstly Ben, thanks so much for your personal reply in SuperFast Results. Shows you care!

    The important thing that you guys have pointed out is that SEOC is not an accurate measure of the competition we REALLY face when doing keyword research. These days I just go straight to the SEO Competition module because it's those first ten entries that really count! And you're pulling that data from Google. Hea kraam.
    These days (as an affiliate) I use the SEO Competition module by only going for keywords that have at least four of the top ten entries easy to beat (pretty green), and if there are too many big players in there like Amazon and Walmart with PR4+ I won't bother.

  218. Great to have MS back online. Surely it has been a good start for the MS team for 2012, but I do see the MS team effort in trying to mitigate all the challenges they face and offer excellent customer service for their products.

    I read that some of your paying customers aren't confident about the data drew from Bing which I must say I agree. Bing although growing in market share, has yet to prove itself being capable of replacing Google. In fact, much of the traffic to my websites and my clients are from Google, not so much from Bing.

  219. This is awesome customer service. I'm very impressed with market samurai and the the level of transparency. I really enjoy the product and appreciate this notification.
    Thank you!

  220. 220

    In SEO competition SITE (Index Count) must be from Google – really. Here in Europe Bing has 3 – 8 % of market….

    Mayby you should stop giving away MS for 40 days for free. 12 days it enought for someone who want buy it.

  221. Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the excellent work MS has put into getting something up and running again so soon.

    I've been using the limited rank checker for a few days and to be honest I've had totally inconsistent results. For example I'm seeing pages reported as not ranked that are clearly (cache cleared/no history etc) on the first page. I've even checked using proxies and the results are there. Talking of which, I've just signed up to the HMA VPN solution http://bit.ly/A8Ppzx that I'm hoping will give better results. It was worth the $12 or whatever for 1 month just to give it a go. If it works then I can take the burden of you guys full stop.

    I know it might seem slightly out there but would it not be possible to use something similar (3rd paryt) over the existing cloud infrastructure to anonmyise (is that even a word?) your Google traffic or do you still reckon there's just too much throughput?

    Hey guys,

    Long time MS user – I have 3 licenses actually, so… you could say I'm generally a supporter.

    What I want to know is this:

    Many tools offer rank trackers. There's everything from CuteRank to the actual “Rank Tracker” from the guys behind SEO SpyGlass.

    All of these other tools have kept their rank tracker functions working, and there's no discussion amoungst the users about fee structures, etc.

    So what makes MS unique here?

    Why is it that MS is the only software talking about this?

    If this was a “Google” problem, how have all of the other tools overcome it so easily?

    Hell, if Scrapebox can still query Google at 500 threads of inurl: searches behind proxies without being banned, what's the issue?

    I've never seen one explaination that makes any sense about why MS is the only tool with a problem that will begin to require fee's.

    Mind you, it's not about the money… it's about this being an isolated incident that only affects your software, and it's not unreasonable to just ask why…

    I'm sure this will get the crowd looking to hang anyone that says anything out of turn all worked up, but that's their decision. I don't really care about people getting super defensive, so if anyone would like to, be my guest.

    In the mean time, the question still stands…

    Tere,

    There is a trouble in SEO competition, nothing is shown for RDD, RDP, BLP, BLD and BLEG. Is it just for me ?

    There was a problem with getting data from MajesticSEO – we have fixed this so it should be back up and running.

  225. I have only used the Keyword research and SEO competition modules, primarily but occassionally used the domain module. Unfortunately, if 'works' is your definition of how the SEO competition module now functions all I can say is

    Does anyone want to buy my MS license?

    Again, Thank you so much for your honesty, and hard work.

  227. Hey guys, thanks for your great work. I don't access Rank Tracking all that often (maybe once a month), so I'm concerned that when you start to charge for it, I'll be even less inclicing to use your software.

    But I have an idea…

    May I suggest that you add a cost ONLY to those who use the service frequently? Maybe above a threshold per day/week/month – surely there's a way to build a monitoring mechanism into the system?

    Just a thought…

    Keep up the good work, Mark

    That is the type of pricing structure that we expect to use – Miriam

  228. Thanks to the whole team for such a tremendous effort. Your software is fantastic and I wish you continued success.

  229. I can tell ya from my own experience that I've gotten back 100X more than what I paid for this software.

    I been online for 12 years now and I've never seen a company in our industry have the level of service as the Market Samurai team.

    I thank you for that.

    Now as to getting a refund! Come on, lets get real here. Do we actually expect MS team to fork up $40ka day just to have this one feature free?

    I could understand the new users wanting it but for the rest of us, I believe we've gotten our moneys worth. I know I have.

    I for one rely on the Rank tracker feature. Helps my business. so if and when it goes to paid, then I'll think about it.

    I won't stop using though. There's tons of other features that help my business. The Rank Tracker is just one.

    Thanks for all you do fellas. Keep up the support and great job you guys are doing.

    I sold a bit MS copys by my website and affiliate program. After the last changes a cant get any sale… Really. PPL are downloading trial but they dont want to buy it. This is the best proof for me that staff should solve the last issues. I bet that global MS sales are also going down..

    I can understand the issue with Rank Tracker, but please stop using BING instead Google in SEO Copetition. BING data like “Index Count” is worthless for all Europe. Really, it worst than blank data.

    Thanks you :-)

  232. In SEO Competition, Google Index Count(IC). After I checked this is not count index Google but Bing Index. can you make back for Count Index Google?
    Thanks

    Been using MS for years and love it. What a great team and great value. Thanks so much for making this tool affordable for the little guy!

  234. I have never posted on this blog before so please do not interpret what I say as trolling to any degree. I will have to agree with just about everyone that says the SEOC must be restored to utilizing Googles Results and not Bing.

    I have been trying your product for the second time now the first time was a couple of months ago and I just could not believe how powerful your software was and how awesome in general it was as a whole. However, this second time around using the Demo I have noticed that SEOC does not return nearly as many results as it had prior when it used Google for the SEOC.

    I have been wanting to buy Market Samurai since I had initially tried it but money has been really tight the past few months so I have been unable to purchase it for those reasons. I will also mention that with the way things are currently with MS using Bing I am kind of on the fence about my decision to purchase your software Regretfully, I have to make my thoughts clear on your decision to use Bing in lieu of Google for SEOC and other areas of the software!

    I have been doing SEO for about 4 years now and I will be very adament when I say that I would not rely on Bing to make me toast let alone trust their data to be accurate in comparison to Google's!
    Even if they do posses 30% of the Market share here in the US it is soley because Americans have become lazy by nature I really cannot believe that it has anything to do Micro$ofts Tech.

    I mean hell, you would think that seeing how Microsoft governs about 83% of the computer operating system industry that they would be ahead of the curve on just about everything. Lets look at Internet Explorer as a perfect example they are behind in all of the current coding standards for web design and by far present the biggest pain in the ass when building websites compared to other browsers.

    So no I would not be inclined to believe they are formidable competitor for Google when it comes to search algorithms!

    No I don't agree with going with Bing either and was not impressed with Magestic.

    Great comment about microsoft! I consider all their products a “virus”.

  235. That are good news.

  236. I've been using MS for almost 3 years now. I'm going to be quite honest here and say that I'm disappointed with the performance of your product within the last few months. With the need of constant updates, and now MAJOR issues with the Rank Tracker (one of my sole purposed for purchase), it's becoming a HASSLE to use your product. I've been patient. I've been supportive. But if things don't change in the very near future, I'm going to have to give my loyalty to another product.

    I would sincerely appreciate a blog article on HOW TO SETUP A VPN AND PROXIES IN MARKET SAMURAI so I can use the Rank Tracker for medium-high volume queries without getting my IP banned from Google's services.

    Please and Thank you. I appreciate what y'all have done to combat the Rank Tracker issues, but it's your responsibility to do better…..one way or another. I understand things change, but you need to “adapt or die”.

    Dear Staff

    Any news about Bing issue? When data from Google will come back in at least SEO Competition?

  238. Been using MS for quite some site and good to read that you are back in business!!

  239. 239

    I have always backed MS and the Team.
    Like others i got a good deal when i purchased
    a few years ago.
    But because of recent “problems” with MS iv'e
    had to use “other” tools to keep up.

    I am wondering why other tools don't seem to be affected by the latest Google updates when it comes to Rank Tracking etc?

    Is it true that MS has an inherent coding problem? Ergo the constant scrambling to fix problems?

    Is the huge percentage of “Free Users” causing a problem?

    Are the accusations leveled by SEO Powersuite CEO true?

    I would also like to add my voice to the anti-Bing choir, Google is where the money is, i am not interested in any results from Bing (Sorry)…

  240. 240

    Any word yet on what the price will be for the new rank checker? Also, whats the word on the ETA for its release?

    As a businessman I can appreciate the attempt at making more money on a continuous basis from a pool of clients that already paid the one-off price.

    As a client if we don't have a simple way to make searches with our own proxies with G's search engine(our clients usually do not care about Bing or Yahoo), that would be suicide seeing how so many of your competitors offer this for free, as well as Google's API also is free to tap into.

    Give us options, not just limitations and we will keep recommending your awesome software to the uninitiated.

  242. I am new to Market Samurai and the Rank Tracker issues haven't effected me (yet). However I was so impressed with the way Eugene and his company responded to this issue, that I wrote a blog post about it. People may be pissed off with how MS has handled this issue, but it beats crawling under a rock and going radio silent.

    Keep up the open and honest work!!

  243. is it possible to have High ACrank and zero gogle rank?
    how this happens?

  244. Thanks for keeping us in the loop Eugene.

    I can imagine it's difficult keeping up with the challenge that present from search engines while still keeping the high quality of your amazing tools and products.

    Please ETA subscription. I am going to stick with you guys, I believe you deserve it. But, I am desperate need for a good rank tracker, I'm using others, but they are not as accurate as MS during the good times. Go Go Go
