Market Samurai’s #1 Most Requested Feature: Fixed Headers

Share Button

The #1 most requested feature for Market Samurai was fixed column headers…

…Column headings that stay visible at the top of the page as you scroll down, so that you can easily work out what the data in each column refers to.

And finally, it’s here.

Fixed column headings are one of the most recent additions to Market Samurai – and they’re available for you to use right now.

Looks simple… But it wasn’t easy…

I really admire the persistence of Market Samurai’s programmers here.

Let me share their story…

Already, the headers were being used to sort and filter data, resize the column widths to fit the page, and were being hidden when deselected…

After over a dozen failed attempts, the Samurai programmers still couldn’t find a way to make the headings stick at the top of the screen.

These are guys who have built search engines, operating systems, content management systems, micro kernels – and all of the other high-tech features inside Market Samurai… but it looked like this one seemingly simple task had beaten them…

…That Was Until A Few Weeks Ago…

Late one night, they struck success.

It finally worked!

Big smiles beamed from triumphant developers well into the night, and into the next day…

And shortly after – Market Samurai’s most requested feature was released to all users, in all current versions of Market Samurai.

That means (if you haven’t discovered it yet) you can open Market Samurai to find our most requested feature has been delivered – fixed column headers – column headings stay in place as you scroll down.

This makes it easier to analyze data inside the Keyword Research module, and work out what all of the figures mean.

Check it out.

So open up Market Samurai now and have a play with this new cool feature!

Thank-you yet again to all of our users for all of your feedback.

It’s because of your feedback that the team made it a personal challenge to make this feature happen for you.

Keep your comments coming in – they don’t go unheard. :)


P.S. – As always, if you haven’t used Market Samurai yet, make sure you get your free trial now and let it find more visitors for your web-site.

    FINALLY! I was dying for this feature…as always, you guys rock!

  3. Always thought to myself every time I scrolled down…what in the hell do they have to do to keep the headers fixed?

    Still not sure what had to be done or what the solution was but I am VERY VERY happy to have this nagging issue solved.



  4. Great work, guys!! Thanks for never giving up.

    It’s such a useful feature which I’m sure everyone will really appreciate. Now I know who to turn to for those impossible jobs.

    Now that I think about it, I’ve been designing this time machine, and I’m all finished except for this one little last piece of software that has me stumped, and all it really needs to do is to make my machine move through time.

    What do you say? Maybe in your spare time after lunch?!


  5. Many thanks again for all your efforts. I maybe crazy but I have full belief that my headers have been fixed for a couple updates now. If there was an issue I didn’t notice, then again Sheryl Loch does most of the keyword stuff on our team.

    Just wanted to thank you all for your relentless efforts!

    It’s the “simple” things that always seem to pose the biggest problems to be solved only by a brainwave in the middle of the night. Been there, done that. Thanks for sticking with it guys. This has made life just so much easier. Keep up the good work.

  7. Thanks samuria, You cease to amaze.

    @Ron: That sucks.. why is it?

    Cool about the fixed headers! :) I think you can sell this.. a programmer friend of mine cringes everytime he is asked for GUI stuff like that. ;-)

    thanks guys and gals!

  10. Thanks guys, as a developer I have an idea of how much work could go into a feature that seems like something trivial.

    Keep up the great work :)

  11. I have been waiting for this one for a long time. It just helps keep everything in context without having to remember which column is which. I think this improvement alone will save me a few minutes of research on this already lightning fast tool :)

    Well Done Guys!!! Fixed headers a last.Really appreciate the tenacity of your programmers for finding a way.I bet you are so pleased with yourselves, and so you should be.

  13. I get the fixed header but, what the heck does miniature corn (micro kernels) have to do with Keyword research?

    You all are great! Brent owes you each a case of Pepsi Max!

    Thank you. I remember asking for this in last year’s 30 day challenge. Since then you’ve done an amazing job in making Market Samurai an absolutely essential tool. It’s nice to get the tweaks too – especially when we think it’s simple and your guys really have to get creative!

    Many thanks to the whole team for all your hard work. Very much appreciated.

  18. YAY!!!!!!! Great job guys!!!

  21. Thanks for that
    Now I can throw away my line reference drawing stuck on the wall

  22. Please make Rank Checker work on Linux Operating Systems. I’m sure this is the number one request off all non-windows/mac users.

  24. As a computer programer I have to say that it just looks simple.. but you really can be proud of your programmers. Well done!
