Ce blog contient beaucoup d'informations, mais je voulais répondre que beaucoup de vos questions que possible sur notre nouveau service. En particulier ce blog couvrira:

  1. Un récapitulatif sur l'état actuel du module Rank Tracker.
  2. Une mise à jour de l'état de l'avancement du nouveau service de Rank Tracker.

  5. Les détails de nos plans tarifaires - et comment vous pouvez obtenir l'accès à un rabais de 50%.
  6. Comment notre nouveau service de Rank Tracker est différente à d'autres services sur le marché.

Il ya beaucoup à couvrir, donc nous allons commencer.

1. Rang Tracker est en train de travailler et fonctionnel dans Samurai marché

Il est important de rappeler que le module actuel Rank Tracker travaille actuellement et fonctionnel.

Après la Google changer notre première priorité était de restaurer la fonctionnalité de base le plus rapidement possible. Rapidement, sur une période de plusieurs jours nous avons publiés les mises à jour qui rendaient fonctionnalité à tous nos modules de base.

Plus important encore, Rank Tracker travaille actuellement. La grande majorité de nos utilisateurs contrôler moins de 50 mots-clés et de notre service doit être exécuté en douceur pour ces utilisateurs.

Si vous êtes à la vérification d'un grand nombre de mots-clés (plus de 100), vous pouvez être invité à remplir un captcha pour continuer tirant données de classement, mais vous pouvez toujours chercher l'ensemble des données de mots clés.

2. Quels progrès ont été réalisés sur le nouveau service de Rank Tracker, et quand aura à être prêt à utiliser?

Depuis la restauration de la pleine fonctionnalité de Samurai marché, nous avons travaillé sans relâche pour vous apporter la nouvelle «nuage» version de notre service de suivi de Rang.

Voici une mise à jour rapide sur la façon dont nous allons:

  • Nous avons déjà fait des progrès significatifs construction de l'infrastructure back-end et de services pour offrir le nouveau service de suivi de Rang.
  • Nous avons parlé à plus d'une douzaine rang suivi des fournisseurs de données et négocié une offre spéciale sur votre nom pour être capable de gérer de façon fiable aux exigences de notre base d'utilisateurs - à plus de 200 millions de chèques de classement par mois, ceci est une charge importante pour beaucoup des fournisseurs que nous avons parlé d'!
  • Nous avons conçu une interface facile à utiliser rapidement et facilement migrer vos informations Rank Tracker existante vers le cloud et pour la gestion de vos campagnes en ligne.

Alors, quand cela sera prêt pour que vous utilisez?

Bien que nous ayons fait des progrès significatifs à ce jour, notre meilleure estimation actuelle est que nous serons dans une position pour un grand test bêta dans le temps de environ 2-3 semaines, avec un lancement public d'environ 2 semaines après que. Cela donnera à nos bêta-testeurs une chance d'obtenir quelques semaines de rapports de classement par le biais, pour débusquer les problèmes avant de nous la rendons disponible à tout le monde.

Je me rends compte que cela est plus long que nous avons estimé à l'origine, mais je pense que vous serez d'accord qu'il est plus important de faire en sorte que la nouvelle version est aussi fiable et stable que possible, et qui implique quelques semaines de plus que nous avons estimé à l'origine.

S'il vous plaît soyez assuré que ceci est notre priorité n ° 1, et de toutes les ressources disponibles au Noble Samurai travaille pour vous offrir ce nouveau service de suivi de Rang le plus rapidement possible.

Une fois de plus, le module de Rank Tracker existant travaille actuellement et sera en mesure de servir la majorité des exigences de classement de nos utilisateurs jusqu'à ce que nous sommes en mesure de mettre en place notre nouveau service.

3. Donc ce qui est différent de la nouvelle Rank Tracking service?

Si vous avez utilisé Rank Tracker vous vous rendrez vite compte de son principal inconvénient - il est lent! Il est un problème que les actions du module Rank Tracker actuels avec tout bureau rang logiciel de vérification.

Si vous êtes sérieux au sujet de vérifier votre classement, vous devez lancer le logiciel pour chaque semaine, cliquez sur le bouton "Mettre à jour une note", et ensuite attendre jusqu'à une demi-heure ou plus avant tous vos classements des données a mis à jour! Et plus les mots clés que vous suivez, le plus lent, il devient!

Et voilà pour chaque fichier de données Rank Tracker que vous avez. Beaucoup de nos utilisateurs ont plusieurs sites ou des clients dont ils ont besoin pour vérifier le classement pour, et chacun de ceux-ci dans un fichier de projet différent. Si vous avez 3 ou 4 fichiers, l'ensemble du processus peut prendre plusieurs heures pour terminer, ce qui est idéal.

Le nouveau service de suivi des Rank est très différente. Au lieu d'avoir à vérifier vos mots-clés vous-même, nous vérifions les mots-clés sur votre compte automatiquement, et vous enverrons un e-mail chaque semaine quand vos classements de mots clés sont prêts.

Voici comment cela va fonctionner:

  1. Tout d'abord, télécharger vos fichiers de suivi de Rang existants à la Samurai Noble "nuage" des serveurs, où vos données de classement seront stockés.
  2. Ensuite, choisissez les mots clés que vous souhaitez surveiller sur une base hebdomadaire. Vous désignez également quel jour de la semaine, vous souhaitez que vos chèques de classement mis à jour.
  3. Une fois par semaine, nos serveurs "en nuage" va vérifier votre classement en votre nom (vous ne même pas besoin de votre ordinateur pour être allumé! Tout se passe automatiquement sur nos serveurs).
  4. Lorsque vos classements ont été vérifiés et vos rapports de classement complet, nous vous enverrons un email de notification pour vous laisser savoir.
  5. Vous pouvez ensuite ouvrir Rank Tracker, et afficher instantanément vos données de classement.

Parce que nous faisons tout le levage lourd depuis nos serveurs «nuage», vous passez moins de temps d'attente pour obtenir des résultats, et vous pouvez passer plus de temps à interpréter vos données!

4. Quels sont les détails du plan Rang GRATUIT Tracking pour les propriétaires Samurai marché existant?

Notre grand espoir est que nous serions en mesure d'offrir un plan de suivi de rang Gratuit pour les propriétaires actuels des deux Samurai marché et de l'article Samurai.

Nous avons passé les dernières semaines à analyser les habitudes d'utilisation de nos clients actuels, et aussi agressivement négocier avec le classement des fournisseurs de données pour comprendre:

  1. Si un plan est économiquement possible GRATUIT du tout; et
  2. Quel plan inclurait GRATUIT pour nos utilisateurs existants.

Les bonnes nouvelles sont que nous serons en mesure d'offrir un grand plan GRATUITE pour tous les propriétaires actuels de nos produits.

Dans une analyse de notre classement des données d'utilisation au cours de l'année écoulée, nous avons découvert le motif d'utilisation suivante pour notre clientèle actuelle:

92% piste moins de 50 mots-clés
7% piste entre 51-500 mots-clés
1% piste plus de 500 mots-clés

Notre objectif était de fournir un plan GRATUIT qui ferait en sorte que le plus grand nombre de nos clients que possible serait complètement affecté par les changements Rang Tracker.

Je suis heureux d'annoncer que tous les clients existants de Samurai marché et de l'article Samurai seront admissibles à un régime libre de 50 mots-clés.

Cela signifie que plus de 92% de nos clients va obtenir le bénéfice de la Rank service de suivi amélioré (où nous regardons vos classements pour vous automatiquement à chaque semaine), et ne pas avoir à payer un sou pour elle!

Il ya des choses importantes à noter:

1. Alors que le plan gratuit sera gratuit pour vous, il est pas à nous - Nous allons payer des milliers de dollars chaque mois, en votre nom, à souscrire ces plans gratuits. Nous avons mis l'freeline à un niveau qui devrait satisfaire la grande majorité des utilisateurs (plus de 92%), tout en fixant le montant des liquidités que nous devons dépense chaque mois pour nos clients à un niveau soutenable.

Rassurez-vous, ce ne sera pas nous mettre en faillite, mais il est important de partager ce que nous allons payer la note pour ces comptes gratuits, nous avons dû tracer la ligne quelque part, et un plan de 50 mots clés frappe un équilibre de satisfaire la grande majorité des besoins de l'utilisateur, ainsi que la gestion de nos coûts permanents.

2. Cette offre ne sera disponible pour Samurai existante marché (et l'article Samurai) propriétaires, ou toute personne qui achète Samurai marché avant 30 avril 31 mai 2012 - Comme nos clients existants et les utilisateurs d'essai sont ceux qui seront le plus touchés par les changements, cette offre ne sera disponible à la base de la propriété existante - toute personne qui a une version complète de Samurai marché ou de l'article Samurai, ainsi que tout utilisateur de procès en cours qui met à niveau vers la version complète avant 30 avril Le 31 mai 2012.

3. Après la 30th of Avril 31 2012 du mois de mai, le plan GRATUITE pour tous les nouveaux clients de Samurai marché va baisser à 10 mots clés par mois - Comme il ya un coût permanent substantiel dans la fourniture de ces plans GRATUIT le plan libre 50 de mot-clé est disponible uniquement aux propriétaires existants (et tous ceux qui mise à niveau de la version complète avant 30 avril 31 mai 2012).

Avec près de 60.000 clients, vous pouvez commencer à comprendre pourquoi ce plan fournissant GRATUIT va nous coûter des milliers de dollars par mois.

Voilà pourquoi nous ne pouvons faire cette offre disponible pour les clients existants. Les futurs clients seront limités à un / plan de 10 mois mot-clé.

4. Cette GRATUIT plan de mot-clé est l'équivalent de 50 plans payés qui coûtent jusqu'à à 22,50 $ par mois - Nous avons fait une analyse approfondie de la concurrence dans l'espace de service de suivi de rang. La plupart des services de suivi de rang manquera pas de fournir un plan gratuit à tous, et ont un prix d'entrée minimal de 29 $ à 49 $ par mois juste pour vous inscrire. Ceci étant le cas, la valeur réelle de vous pour un plan de 50 mots clés est comparable entre 5 $ à 22,50 $ par mois.

Seuls les clients existants, et ceux qui achètent la version complète de Samurai marché avant 30 avril 31 mai 2012, aura droit à cette libre plan de 50 de mot-clé - qui fournit jusqu'à 22,50 $ par mois de chèques rang de mot-clé, GRATUITEMENT.

5. Les détails de nos plans de tarification

Notre classement analyse des données d'utilisation montre que notre plan de 50 mots clés sera plus que suffisant pour plus de 92% de nos clients.

Toutefois, si vous êtes l'un de ceux qui sont dans les 8% d'utilisateurs qui suivent plus de 50 mots-clés, alors nous voulons nous assurer que nous nous occupons de vous aussi.

Avant de révéler ce que les plans de tarification sont, il est important d'examiner la concurrence et voir ce que les options les moins chers disponibles sont sur ​​le marché pour suivre plus de 50 mots-clés sur une base hebdomadaire:

Concurrent

Un

B

C

Moins cher plan de mot-clé 50+

$ 49 / mois

24 $ / mois

19 $ / mois

$ 99 / mois

Mots-clés suivis

250

100

100

1000

Prix ​​/ Mot-clé

$ 0,20

$ 0,24

$ 0,19

$ 0,10

Donc, si vous avez besoin de suivre plus de 50 mots clés, puis le plan le moins cher de services concurrents commence à 19 $ / mois, et vous pouvez payer jusqu'à 99 $ / mois!

Même si cela peut sembler beaucoup, il ya de bonnes raisons pour le prix. Il ya des coûts difficiles à fournir une infrastructure de vérifier un grand nombre de mots-clés.

En faisant notre analyse et notre modèle de tarification, nous avons deux avantages certains sur nos concurrents:

  • La plupart des prix des concurrents est destiné aux agences SEO - entreprises avec des poches profondes des agences chargent souvent des centaines ou des milliers de dollars à leurs propres clients chaque mois, et peut donc se permettre de payer des montants substantiels chaque mois pour obtenir leurs classement des mots clés mis à jour pour eux..

    Agences de gérer plusieurs clients - avoir besoin de suivre des centaines ou des milliers de mots-clés chaque mois. La structure de prix des plans actuellement offerts sur le marché reflète ce besoin. Malheureusement, cela le met hors de portée de nombreux propriétaires de petites entreprises en ligne, en particulier si elles doivent seulement suivre quelques centaines de mots-clés.
  • La plupart de nos concurrents servent une relativement petite base de clients des agences SEO - et sont incapables de répartir leurs coûts d'infrastructure sur des dizaines de milliers d'utilisateurs que nous sommes tellement.

Nous savons qui sont nos clients, et ils sont très différents des agences SEO! Bien que nous ayons certaines agences et consultants SEO en utilisant notre logiciel, la plupart de nos utilisateurs sont propriétaires de petites entreprises en ligne qui ne disposent pas des centaines de dollars par mois à dépenser sur le suivi de leurs classements.

Nous avons pris ce besoin en considération lors de venir avec nos propres plans de suivi de Rang.

Pour veiller à ce que les clients existants d'obtenir le meilleur accord possible, nous offrons deux séries de plans:

  1. Les plans pour nos clients existants (ou nouveaux clients qui achètent avant 30 avril 31 mai 2012).
  2. Les plans pour de nouveaux clients qui achètent après 30 avril Le 31 mai 2012.

Voici une liste de ce que nos plans seront pour le service de suivi des Rank Noble Samurai:

Rang plan Tracker

Donc, si vous êtes un client existant avec 100 mots-clés, vous pouvez suivre votre classement pour seulement 5 $ par mois. Voilà seulement 0,05 $ par mot-clé - moins d'un quart de la plupart des offres de nos concurrents!

Pour tous les clients existants (et pour toute personne qui met à niveau vers la version complète de Samurai marché avant 30 avril 31 mai 2012), vous aurez accès à l'ensemble de nos plans de détail, mais à un 50% Demi-Prix Discount!

Si vous étudiez les plans ci-dessus, vous verrez que même nos futurs plans de détail (qui entrent en action uniquement pour les nouveaux clients qui achètent après 30 avril 31 mai 2012) ont un prix par mot-clé moins de la moitié des plus de l'offre de notre concurrent. Pour obtenir le même prix par mot-clé de services concurrents, vous aurez besoin de dépenser au moins 99 $ par mois!

Nous serions ravis de pouvoir offrir GRATUIT Tracking Rang continue à tous nos utilisateurs concernés, cependant, pour des raisons que je vous ai déjà couverte, économiquement cela est tout simplement pas possible.

Notre plan de 50 GRATUIT mot-clé, qui répond aux besoins de plus de 92% de nos clients, nous coûtera des milliers de dollars chaque mois pour couvrir.

Si vous êtes l'un des rares qui suit plus de 50 mots-clés (et vous êtes un client existant), nous sommes en mesure de vous donner un prix spécial - moins d'un quart du prix de nos concurrents.

Toute personne qui achète notre produit après 30 avril 31 mai 2012 sera en mesure de choisir parmi nos plans de détail, qui sont toujours une grande valeur - à moins de la moitié du prix de la plupart de nos concurrents.

Tous les plans Rang Tracker fournissent des rapports hebdomadaires. Comment ce travail, et pourquoi ne sommes-nous en mesure de fournir des mises à jour plus fréquentes?

Avec seulement quelques exceptions près, la majorité de nos concurrents de fournir des mises à jour de classement uniquement à la semaine, et pour de bonnes raisons:

  1. Si vous ne surveillez régulièrement classements vous remarquerez fluctuations quotidiennes de vos résultats. Ce «bruit» quotidienne déforme l'image réelle de ce qui se passe à vos classements.

    La grande majorité des professionnels de SEO vérifier leur classement sur une base hebdomadaire ou bimensuelle. Il est généralement admis dans les milieux de référencement qui contrôle les classements plus souvent que cela donne peu de valeur. Il est l'équivalent de surveiller le prix des actions de vos actions sur une minute par minute. Il est trop granuleuse de fournir des tendances significatives ou une action.
  2. Il ya un réel coût dur tangible à fournir de gros volumes de classement des mots clés. Il est une infrastructure importante qui doit être construit à regarder des millions de mots-clés par mois. Fournir des classements hebdomadaires signifie quatre chèques par mois et par mot-clé. Fournir des classements quotidiens implique sept fois plus de recherches de mots clés, ce qui se traduit directement dans sept fois le coût. Services qui fournissent les classements quotidiens sont beaucoup plus cher par mot-clé à suivre - et à juste titre!

Dans l'intérêt de garder classement des mots clés aussi accessible et aussi abordables que possible à nos clients, nous avons opté pour fournir initialement rapports seul classement hebdomadaire. Si la demande est suffisante, nous pouvons présenter des classements quotidiens, mais ces plans seront naturellement beaucoup plus cher à fournir.

6. Qu'est-ce qui est unique sur notre service de Rank Tracker? Comment se comparent avec la concurrence?

Si vous ne l'avez pas vraiment utilisé le module Rank Tracker avant, ou avez pas vérifié pour un certain temps, voici un récapitulatif rapide de certains de ses caractéristiques uniques delà d'être seulement un quart du prix de la compétition.

Ils disent que «la rétroaction est le petit déjeuner des champions", et dès le début Rank Tracker a été conçu pour fournir une rétroaction rapide sur les "effets" de votre référencement travail de renforcement de la liaison et de la stratégie SEO.

  1. Rank Tracker vérifie non seulement votre classement dans les trois principaux moteurs de recherche, mais également le nombre de liens qui pointent vers chacune de vos pages rang - Typiquement, que votre travail de renforcement de la liaison augmente, vous verrez une augmentation du nombre de liens, suivie par une augmentation de votre classement. Il est un indicateur avancé de classement et de Rank Tracker seulement Noble Samurai offre cette fonctionnalité. (Professionnels de SEO aiment cette fonctionnalité - car il fournit la preuve de tout le dur travail de renforcement de lien que vous avez fait)
  2. Rank Tracker vous montre les classements pour chaque page web unique que vous contrôlez - Il est courant dans le référencement moderne à utiliser de multiples domaines pour classer des mots-clés. La plupart des autres services de suivi de Rang ne peuvent suivre un domaine, et seulement vous indique le meilleur classement que vous détenez. Nous vous permettons de suivre un certain nombre de domaines, ainsi que les URL spéciaux comme des vidéos YouTube. Nous vous montrons tous les classements que vous détenez dans les 100 premiers résultats, pas seulement le plus élevé.
  3. Rank Tracker vous permet de suivre les domaines illimités pour un seul mot clé - La plupart des autres solutions de suivi de rang sur le marché facturent à leurs clients basés sur un concept appelé «paires de mots clés". Si vous souhaitez suivre vos classements de mots clés sur un mot-clé pour 5 domaines différents, vous auriez à entrer ce mot clé dans 5 fois, de manger dans votre quota mensuel. Dans Rank Tracker, qui comptera comme un seul mot-clé - si votre quota de mots-clés va beaucoup plus loin.
  4. Rank Tracker vous permet de suivre les classements sur les sites Web 2.0 (comme YouTube et Squidoo), que vous pouvez contrôler, mais ne possédez pas! - De nombreuses solutions sur le marché, vous limiter aux pages seulement suivi sur un seul domaine, ou vous forcer à suivre chaque site Web 2.0 comme un autre "paire mot-clé", manger dans votre quota limité mot-clé. Comme vous le savez, YouTube et les sites Web 2.0 comprennent souvent une partie essentielle de SEO moderne. Seulement Rank Tracker vous permet d'ajouter autant de Web 2.0 les pages web que vous le souhaitez - tout en utilisant seulement un seul mot clé de votre quota hebdomadaire.
  5. Rank Tracker supports the full range of search engine language and country combinations - Speaking to many rank tracking data providers we realized that very few support the full range of Language and Country combinations available in Google and the major search engines. Market Samurai has become very popular for non-US, non-English speaking customers because we've worked very hard to support right-to-left languages such as Hebrew, and “Unicode” languages such as Japanese and Chinese. The data provider we've chosen is one of the few who is able to provide the full range of Language / Country combinations.
  6. Rank Tracker manages the issues of Google “localization” and “personalization” - Google often serves up different ranking pages based on where you're situated. Google also personalizes your search results based on the sites that you frequently visit. This “localization” and “personalization” behaviour can make it very challenging to get an objective set of general search results as a benchmark for your SEO activities.

    As a result, you often see very different results searching Google from your own web-browser than what a rank tracking service reports. The ranking data provider we've chosen does an excellent job of removing such biases from the results.

Résumé

Ouf! That's a lot of information to digest! Here's a quick recap if you're short of time:

  1. If you're an existing Market Samurai (or Article Samurai) customer you'll get access to a FREE 50 keyword Rank Tracker plan – which our usage data shows will be suitable for over 92% of our customers.
  2. If you're part of the handful of customers who need to track more than 50 keywords you'll be able to get access to special plans which are less than a quarter of the price of most of our competition.
  3. We're working really hard to get the new Rank Tracking service out to you as quickly as possible. We hope to have a version to Beta test in the next two to three weeks. We'll send an email with the details of how to sign up to the Beta when it's ready.

A big thanks once again to the incredible support and encouragement we've been receiving from our customers!

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

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

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Salut Steve,

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

    Meilleurs Voeux,

    Eugene

  2. Hey Eugene,

    Thanks for the very thorough and detailed follow up.

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

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

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

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

    Hi Chris,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

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

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

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

    Thanks for your support and encouragement.

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

    Meilleurs Voeux,

    Eugene

  3. hi Eugene,

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

    merci
    Bruce

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Bruce,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

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

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

    Je souhaite que fait sens.

    BTW, I think you have got the pricing just right. Bravo.
    Merci

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

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

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

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

    Kindly advise.

    Hi Kalpana,

    Merci pour votre question.

    1. Yes, you can upgrade and downgrade as much as you need (and if you get in before 30th April you'll still get access to the special 50% pricing).

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

    Hope that answers your question.

    Hi Eugene,

    Merci pour votre réponse.

    I have a feature request.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Merci

    Salut
    Can you add a little more clarification to Kalpana Rajagopalan Question?

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

    Yes, you can upgrade and downgrade as much as you need (and if you get in before 30th April you'll still get access to the special 50% pricing).

    My Question: when you say “Get In” do you mean being an existing MS paid user and/or by purchasing MS before the 30th . Or do you mean being a paid subscriber to one of the new plans before the 30th.

    Hi Rich,

    You have to be a paid user of the software before April 30th, and all you need to do to lock in these lower prices is to open the new Rank Tracker and upload your data, or enable any plan – even the free one – before April 30th.

    I was wondering whether you'd be able to pull it off.

    I have been looking at some providers as well, but I think you have a bit more pull than I :-)

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Brian,

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

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

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

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

    Sounds like you've worked wonders!

    Right now the free plan will work for me. I'm hoping my needs will require more keyword tracking soon. If I read the notice correctly, then I should sign up before the April deadline to get the awesome pricing. Is that correcct?

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

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Battra,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

    Hope that answers your question.

    Merci,

    Eugene

    Hi Eugene,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Alison,

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

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

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

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

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

    Hope that makes sense!

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

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

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

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

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Emanuele,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Espérons que cela fait sens.

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

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

    Have you guys thought about this at all?

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Josue,

    I understand your concern.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Merci pour votre question.

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

    Salut Jim,

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

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

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

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

  10. My question is about country specific.

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

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

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

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

    Merci

    Brian

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Brian,

    Merci pour votre question.

    Localization is a very tricky issue.

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

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

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

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

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

    I hope that answers your question.

    Vince replied:

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

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

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Dr. Michael,

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

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

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

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

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for sharing your concern.

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

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

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

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

    Vous gars et les filles sont les meilleurs dans l'industrie.

  30. Salut les gars,

    Donc, est le prix que par KW?
    ce qui signifie si je veux suivre
    “underwater cat juggling” (my favorite)
    and have content on my blog
    at http://www.UnderwaterCatJuggling.com
    and undertwatercatjuggling.blogspot.com
    and underwaterCatJuggling.wordpress.com
    etc.
    and want to track all theses URLs, will it count still at ONE keyword?

    merci

    yves

    PS: Sorry if I missed this.

    Yes, the pricing is per keyword so tracking the keyword for a number of domains would count as one keyword

  31. Ça sonne bien!

    I would like to clarify one thing on the pricing for existing customers… Are we grandfathered into the better pricing structure regardless of when we upgrade to a plan. For example, could I get the Orange Belt plan (200 keywords) as soon as it is available and upgrade to a larger plan later at the reduced price or do I need to lock in the price before April 30th?

  32. I paid the one time fee, and am interested in staying on as a free member, with the 50 KW per month. Do I need to sign up somewhere, or make it official in some way, or is it assumed that everyone who's already a paid member will by default sign on as a white belt, and only upgrade if specified?

    Support replied:

    Hi Roderick,

    All you need to do to lock in your 50kw free plan is to open the new Rank Tracker and upload your data, or enable any plan – even the free one – before this date.

  33. I have the same question as Travis. I've been a paid version holder for years, I assume should we need to in the future we can take up one of the paid plans at the discounted rate, after the April 30th cut-off.

    Also, will the new rank tracker service have the ability to specify which google to use? I track several kw's in Google Australia only.

    Support replied:

    Hi Lucie,

    You'll be eligible for the cheaper plans in the future as long as you sign up to any of the plans (even the 50kw free plan) before April 30th, and you definitely will have the ability to specify location in the new Rank Tracker service.

  34. Hi Eugene,

    I went through the post, thanks for the details. I wanted to clarify:

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

    Merci.

    On
    Support replied:

    Hi Max.

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

    The risk of being blocked by Google is still there for doing large amounts of keyword research, but as we will be again taking on the Rank Tracker queries, the risk of being banned due to too many ranking queries will no longer be there.

    Quoi qu'il en soit. Two questions. What if we have over 2500 keywords? We have many many clients. Do we just pay for the overage?

    Deuxième. IS it possible that we can add our clients email along with our email to send the PDF reports or mail them a rank report?

    Merci!

  37. Hi Eugene

    I am sorry, I am still confused. As a Market Samuri owner will I still have to sign up for the ranking program or will I be able to use the ranking program through MS only. I have less than 50 keywords.

  40. Hi Eugene,

    You said – “Once a week, our “cloud” servers will check your rankings …”. But I (and I guess many of us) need to check my rankings almost everyday. So, I wonder if getting just one email every week is going to be enough. Hopefully, as you said, the Rank Tracking inside MS will also be functional for at least <50 keywords.

    Merci.

    Hi Ameet,

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

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

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

  41. Hey Eugene and the team

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

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

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

  43. Excellent work as always.

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

  46. This is outstanding Eugene!

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

    Bonne chance!

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

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

    Just a suggestion.

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

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Greg,

    Merci pour votre commentaire.

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

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

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

    Thanks for your questions though!

    Meilleurs Voeux,

    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Tzvi,

    Thanks for your questions.

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

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

    Meilleurs Voeux,

    Just thought I'd check if you have anything in the pipelines for tracking local rankings (suburb, city, state etc).

    Although there are lots of 'local' tools coming onto the marketing I'd rather stick with MS, if possible :)

    Hi Michaele,

    Merci pour votre question. We have thought about that. It won't be there on day one (our focus is in getting out the first version as quickly as possible), but it may be a possible feature for the future.

    Our data provider doesn't directly support this feature, but this would be easy for them add this in the future. Can't give you a timeline on this at the moment though!

    If you could let me know the names of some of the best Local tools available I'll check them out and see how they've implemented this functionality, and think about how we might change our product to support this in the future.

  54. If we elect to go with the free plan right now and not buy more keywords, can we upgrade at the existing user price AFTER April 30th? Or do we have to figure out our future needs today in order to lock in the special pricing.

    Salut Dennis,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

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

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Foo,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Salut Eddie,

    I'm very sorry that you're upset.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Yours sincerely,

    Eugene

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

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

    On
    Eugene Ware replied:

    Hi Rich,

    Merci pour votre question.

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

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

  59. Salut Eugene,

    Rang Tränker dans MS est vraiment en train de tuer mon esprit :(
    Je suis un fan fidèle de Samurai marché pendant des années et il est vraiment une douleur de ne pas être en mesure d'utiliser MS à son plein potentiel au cours des dernières semaines.

    Je me demande pourquoi pas samurai en mesure de faire ce que SEO PowerSuite est capable en matière de récupération des données de classement du marché? ( http://www.link-assistant.com/rank-tracker/ )

    Ce logiciel fait un bon travail tout à fait pour moi et à fournir des résultats localisés et mondiaux qui ai besoin pour certains de mes clients dans des niches locales et quelques sites qui mondiales dans la nature

    Je l'ai basculé à eux pour les dernières semaines pour vérifier mon classement et il semble qu'il ya tout à fait correct de mon expérience limitée de l'utiliser.

    Si Samurai marché était de déployer cette nouvelle plate-forme de cloud pour vérifier Classement, serions-nous en mesure d'avoir la possibilité de vérifier les résultats localisées et mondiaux?

    Le
    Eugene Ware a répondu:

    Salut Johnson,

    Désolé d'entendre que vous êtes un peu déçu.

    SEO PowerSuite est un bon produit. Juste être conscient qu'il est pas un produit à prix fixe que leur lettre peut suggérer des ventes. Ils ont des frais de mise à jour mensuelle allant entre 5 $ - 20 $ qui se déclenche après environ 6 mois, je pense.

    SEO PowerSuite résout le problème en espaçant leurs requêtes sur une longue période de temps parmi une gamme d'autres techniques.

    Voilà pour le moment ce que nous avons mis en place (le délai de 30 secondes), mais il ya pas une grande expérience de l'utilisateur en raison de classement à long temps de mise à jour.

    We believe it is a better experience if we can handle the rank checks on our side. Rate limiting in Google not only affects you, but anyone else sharing your internet connection. Thus it's not really suitable in many circumstances. This also opens up the ability for us to roll out mobile apps in the future as well that can check your ranking reports, and also potentially get push notifications when reports are ready, or you've received a big drop in your rankings. A purely desktop model limits this somewhat.

    The current plans for Rank Tracker include allowing you to specify your region and language for each campaign. We don't currently support the equivalent of “Show only results in Australia”, but we do support being able to search using Google Australia. That's not to say that we wouldn't support it in the future however.

    What I'd really like to add is the ability to specific a city like “New York” and see the results for that city only. As local SEO is more important these days for local business, that would be a great feature to have. Our data provideR doesn't currently support this, but it would be easy for them to add in the future.

    Once again, I'm sorry for the frustration and disappointment that you're feeling.

    Let me quote this: “We believe it is a better experience if we can handle the rank checks on our side.”

    From my experience, things you believe are best for customers are usually not the best thing.

    I think MS should have done some kind of survey to determine what is the best for the customer.

    I been reading a lot of the comments and it seems that a lot are upset at the fact we can't check stats on our own time.

    As I mentioned before, I check it every other day. And I add and delete keywords all the time.

    This is completely taking the user experience out of it.

    I just don't like the fact that we can't check it on our own.

    If I'm going to pay for something, I would like to have full hands on control of it.

    If I wanted someone else to do it for me, I would go to odesk.

    The pricing structure looks to be more than fair considering that there is a lot more to Market Samurai than one module and revisions appear to be constant.

    Hi Eugene and team,

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

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

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

    Thanks again for the great product and customer support,
    Chris

    Salut Chris,

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Hope that helps you out.

  68. I arrived at MS a long time ago because of problems with getting ranking data from some other software I had at the time.

    Internet marketing is my business and tracking my rankings accurately is vital to me. I feel that the costs for your solution to the problem are a fair and necessary business expense that I'm happy to make.

    On top of that, support from MS has always been top-notch, quick and courteous. I'm in.

    George.

  69. Wow what a great service! I would most likely not exceed 50 kw per month but if I did I have no problem with the pricing structure at all, its actually very cheap!

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

    Thanks Team

  70. Hi Eugene
    Well done for solving the problem.
    I work with many SMEs who are happy with a monthly rankings report.
    Is it possible to specify a longer time period eg once per month and therefore effectively reduce the cost?

  73. Hi Eugene

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

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

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

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

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

    Merci beaucoup

  74. We don't use MS for ranktracking but already found a good alternative. We value other MS features to be more of use for our daily work as SEO advisors. We believe MS is the best tool for SEO competition research and for keyword analysis.

  75. Hi Eugene,

    Hats off to the team at Noble Samurai, and well done to the management team for taking the time to do the analysis properly, and deliver a coherent message.

    It never ceases to amaze me the professionalism that NS have, and the lack of professionalism and transparency in what is an extremely competitive market.

    If you want to know how to deliver to your customers, in terms of value, message, and marketing, Noble Samurai are an excellent example of the right way to do it.

    Thanks to all involved for continuing to exceed my expectations!

  76. Free plan in Rank Tracker is greta news, yhank you! Do you plan to develop more functions in seo competition like sorting or other?

  77. You guys are missing what you can now show to the client.

    A client ranks outside the 1000 rank. As I work to bring them to the first page (at which point they call me Mr. Incredible!), they want to see how their ranking is improving, which is code word to see if I am doing my job.

    If MS only offers the top 100, it could be weeks or months before the clients website shows up in the top 100, if ever!

    How will I show the client a track record of them moving from ### (outside 1000) to ### (outside 1000) to 999 to 800 to 650 to 421 to 274 to 121 to 93 to 63 to 47 to 23 to 14 to 3?

    If each number in my example above took one month to get to, the rankings won't show up in your new Ranking Tracker for 9 months (73)! Every one of my clients would be furious and would fire me within 3 months because I can't show them their ranking improvements until Christmas of this year!

    Interested in what other SEO guru's think as well.

    Merci,
    Eric The Man (just a man, not THE Man)

  78. Thanks for the detailed post Eugene and it looks like you guys have managed to come up with a great solution that should suit the vast majority – a tricky thing to do in adverse conditions!

    As a new user to MS I've been hungrily digesting all the video tutorials that you have in the dojo but Rank Tracker seems to be one area that I haven't seen anything on – are there any videos around as an intro or will the new interface be so different that it's best to wait till that comes out?

    As a follow on from the above I have to say I'm really impressed with the depth of MS – when I bought it I'd only seen the keyword side but the number and scope of other modules has been a great surprise (as is the amount of video training available for free!)

    Will certainly be signing up for the new Rank Tracker as I'm building a lot of trust and confidence in you guys based on your last few blog posts and the way you've bounced back.

    Keep up the good work,

    Cheers

  81. Salut,

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

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

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

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

    Andrew

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

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

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

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

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

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

  85. Hi Eugene & team,

    I am amazed!

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

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

    MERCI

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

  87. Hey Eugene,

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

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

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

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

    - OU -

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

  88. Salut Les Gars!

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

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

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

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

    S'il vous plaît donnez votre avis.

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

    One thing I wanted to clarify here.

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

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

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

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

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

You continue to over deliver and I know you know that it is very much appreciated. I am looking forward to the modified rank tracker module, as well as some of the advanced packages.

  101. Hia Eugene,

    I have a few doubts:

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

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

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

    Merci

  102. 102

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

  103. Hey MS gang how's it going.

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

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

    Voici un exemple.

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

    Pas cool.

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

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

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

    It just doesn't seem like an actual fix.

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

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

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

    Just hope this doesn't kill MS for good.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Thanks Guys/Gals

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

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

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

    Hi Eugene,

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Merci,

    Josh

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

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

  110. Bravo!

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

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

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

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

    Thanks a million for your extraordinary effort!!

  111. Eugene,

    Merci pour la mise à jour.

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

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

    I do have a couple of questions:

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

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

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

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

    Merci beaucoup.

    Salut Eddie,

    Thanks for your questions.

    1. Yes, you can alternate your keyword groups and effectively get 100 free keywords. But you'll have to do this manually (pause/unpause each week).

    2. Yes, when you upload your data we'll save all past historical data.

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

    4. To clarify my statement, if you have a 50 keyword free plan then you get to keep access to this forever. You won't have to pay for it in the future.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Meilleurs Voeux,

    Eugene

    Just to clarify points 3 / as I understand current members / users of MS will not be auto included but will need to register ? and at current we can not do that but you will send another email when this option is available to register, is this correct ?

  116. Hi Eugene,

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

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

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

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

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

    If you sign up for the 50 keyword free plan before the 30th you will be able to get paid plans when you need them at the discounted rate.

    The 50 keywords is per account so it is shared between all the websites, projects etc. It doesn't matter how many campaigns or websites there are.

  117. So pleased you were able to work things out after the Google mess I am very new here the google problem happened about a week after I made the purchase lol. I am still trying to work out what it all means but I will get there and I have a forum that helps thanks everyone

    Hi Christopher,

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

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

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

    And you're partially correct about the keywords – you will have your 1000 keywords, but you can allocate these however you wish at any time. You won't be able to track more than 1000 keywords at any time, but you will be able to reallocate which keywords are tracked whenever you'd like.

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

    Salut James,

    I think your question is if the current way of Rank Tracking will still be available… if that's the case then the question has been answered elsewhere in this thread… and the answer is no…

  120. Thanks for working so hard for your customers, I know I appreciate your efforts.

    One question that was asked that I didn't see an aswer for was: (something like this)As existing customers, what will we need to do to get all of this? Will we need to reactivate our accounts or???

    And Thanks Again to the Noble Samurai Crew for all you do.

    A big thanks to everyone at Noble Samurai!

    This “rank tracker” issue was a big deal to me, and you've found a solution that is VERY equitable to everyone.

    You've even enhanced it's features so it's now the best! (imho)

    Travail impressionnant.

    Merci encore!

    Salut les gars,

    Glad you are getting this worked out. I am not sure if you addressed this or not but those of us that purchased Market Samurai and we are monthly subscribers to Article Samurai do we get more than 50 keywords per month? Or are 50 keywords included for both?

    Merci,

    Jacques

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

  124. Salut

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

    Merci

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

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

  126. Salut,

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

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

    Thank you for reading,

    Jacco

  127. An off-the-topic question.

    Which translation plugin / software are you using?

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

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

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

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

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

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