Market Samurai certainly generating a lot of buzz…

In the past few days:

  • Our beastly new dedicated server went live, was configured, and is now running;
  • Both Market Samurai and Noble Samurai received their new funky Samurai design (complete with logo!);
  • The first screen-shot of Market Samurai was leaked out by Ed Dale;
  • Eugene and I were interviewed by Ed Dale about Market Samurai for the Immediate Edge;
  • People have begun discussing Market Samurai on Twitter, FriendFeed, Flickr, inside the Immediate Edge and on the Thirty Day Challenge forums;
  • Andrew and Eugene have shattered some technical restraints, to deliver even MORE functionality;
  • The first Market Samurai REVIEW (!?) page went up on Squidoo – before the software has even been released!!;
  • Both sites are being populated with content;
  • AND… (the sweetest part of it all) Market Samurai is finding some kick-butt niches already!

There have been some *really* long nights getting to this point, and I know everyone’s looking forward to the big launch!

For those who haven’t had a chance to see Market Samurai in full-flight yet, check out this little appetizer that shows the power of Market Samurai when it comes to finding untapped niche markets…

    Hi Sounds great BUT please can you let us know if this is a one off payment for the software & how much will this be? I have used seodigger & MNF for over six months now successfully and this seems to be the best of both worlds.

    BTW I do hope its not another “clickbank monthly subs”…

  6. Hi Vert,

    I don’t want to give too much away… But… I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the price, and the terms :)

    Totally warrior application guys, I do think it should come with a packed lunch & slurpie as well as a disclaimer that once you start using it that you will go niching crazy and not want to leave the front of your computer diggen into all the possibilities. Woot

  8. App looks great…but if OCI is based on adlabs info you guys should just drop that out of the application because their data is so wrong hehe.

  9. Wishing you all the best – you have delivered a beast upon us, and I thank you

  10. You guys really drove it out of the park with this app. Fabulous job!
    All the best and keep up the amazing developments. Can’t wait to see the formal release.

    Oh my flocking GOD guys this simply rocks!

  12. What a great program!

  13. Love it! nothing like clicking a button to automate the keyword process.. thank you for shaving tons of time off of my keyword search duties.

    Anyone else trying to do keyword research and Google not responding after you hit the Generate Keywords button?

  15. Struggling to get data from uk google – and I didn’t get my forum email password :-(

  16. really looking forward to when it does work properly with UK data though ;-)

    Nice Job

  17. hi guys

    Wow….what a fantastic tool this is….I bought in after only 2 minutes of use as I could see the amazing potential of this great tool.

    If you guys have never bought any tools for research before DO NOT miss this one…you will never need any others afterwards..

  18. Guys!

    What a great, addictive tool…

    Can’t…pull…myself… away….

    In all seriousness, just the tools we have to use
    in MS are good, and then you guys are going to make
    it better!

    Keep it up, especially for 30DC members, we’ll be the next
    gurus with this tool. In fact, you should nickname it “Guru Maker”

    By for now,

    Anthony Whyms

    P.S. BTW, when is the affiliate progam going to be ready?

    G’day mates, Thanks for your Beta of a promising software, I look forward to using all its potential. In the meantime, please consider these points: The tutorial “nalysis with MSam…” loads half hidden below my screen in IE, impossible to move; There is no option to set a default location for my project files except MyDocuments. Sure I can browse and change it, but EVERY TIME? C’mon; The total keyword count should show permanently above the listbox instead of disappearing as soon as one scrolls down the list.
    Thanks for hearing me out. Nice work.

  20. Demo works great, got download link and personal code, got denied..
    Again & again…
    Will retry on Monday :(

    Generator not Generating Keywords anymore – Did I get Banned?
    For How Long?

  22. Tried your key again this am, Got Denied again…
    Is your site down?

    It’s Aug 11th and can’t even access MarkSam tool…Help!
    Patiently await your response.


  23. Out of curiosity, I searched some of the terms above, the swimwear ones, and all looks good at that level, but when you do the SEOComp analysis….red red red….
    back to the samurai board…

    Market Samurai is the best thing that has happened to market research on all levels. Its a useful tool not only for internet market but also for marketing in general. My only fault is I would love to have a manual to explain all these terms I see being used, and also how to use them in my analysis. The terms I have difficulty with are eg; seo comp, awt, adwords comp, etc.

    Keep up the good work guys

  25. Hi Brent,
    I’m a member of 30DC and when I first downloaded MS, there was something there about purchasing it as a 30DC member….it’s gone! Can I still purchase the software at the discount and where did that buy button go?!!:)

  26. Never mind….it’s too early in the morning:) I found it!

  27. 27

    This is an amazing tool because you can do so much stuff with it – the software speaks for itself. I think allowing us to process so many queries is giving us alittle too much power – it might be better if we weren’t allowed to process over 120 or something =D.

  28. For the first time in a very, very long time, I’m left absolutely speechless.

    This is without question the most powerful piece of software I’ve ever seen, used, or heard of.

  29. 29

    I purchased Market Samurai at 12:33 a.m. Pacific time, the payment has cleared PayPal but as of this writing at 3:06 p.m. Pacific, I still haven’t received any confirmation from Noble Samurai…more importantly, the link to download the product. Anybody home?

  30. I bought it but the API doesn’t work.

    I have a ticket in for 3 days now but no reply.

    Anyone there?

    Any news on the v.70 update? How about a blog post announcing the features and bug fixes?

  32. I find this interesting but there are still to many things that don’t work for me to want to pay for it. When will it be completed so that everyng functional. Yes, I’m trying to avoid the “It will never be completed because we always update it” answer.

    What does this do for me that I can’t do at Nichebot which I’ve used almost forever?

  33. Bloody brilliant piece of research software. Now I can kill off some of my expensive monthly subscriptions to other keyword finding services.

  34. What a fantastic tool…using it, bought it, love it….when are you releasing your affiliate program?
    Thank you!!


  35. This would be great if an affiliate program was attached to it:)

  36. When do we get the full version that we have paid for – the link supplied still gives us version 0.70

  37. @Julian – 0.70 is the current and latest version available.

    The final 3 modules inside Market Samurai are still under development, and Market Samurai is still in beta (which is why we’re willing to reduce the price of Market Samurai so drastically for you right now).

    Once the final special offer for Market Samurai is over, all of our time, energy and resources will be put into hardening and improving the current features, putting the finishing touched on the remaining features to be added before release, and working with existing customers to help them with their needs.


  38. hi all

    Am newly signed on for the 30 day challenge and am still looking for a link to download MS. Opened ticket but they haven’t gotten back with me yet..

    any help appreciated


  39. Hi Pat,

    Unfortunately, our 6 support team members have been swamped with enquiries over the past few weeks – to be frank, Market Samurai has proven to be far more successful than we had ever imagined, and we’ve been struggling to keep up with demand.

    I had a look through our system and found no registration under the email address used in this comment.

    This means you likely haven’t signed up for your 40 Day Trial via the 30 Day Challenge.

    The place to go for this is via Day 2′s training, inside the 30DC.

    I’ll also email you a link.


  40. Hey, I paid the full amount of money for the full version. When will ALL the feature be accessible?

  41. Love you guys!… awesome work!! .. well done guys! …Mark from sunny Perth! :)

  42. Thanks for the great (and continuing) feedback :)

    @Dagwood – I looked into your purchase and found that you had purchased at our most heavily discounted price.

    This offer was made to people who got in early and purchased Market Samurai in August/early September.

    It was a massive discount off the normal price because the software was still in an early beta, with some features not yet available, some bugs, and some time until both of those would be sorted.

    Over the coming weeks and months, Market Samurai will receive a regular stream of updates.

    Some of these updates will be minor (tweaks and bug fixes);

    Some will be more significant (feature additions, re-writes of existing code to fix any larger bugs we find);

    Some will be major updates (the release of major Market Samurai modules).

    I don’t have a precise release schedule that I can give you, but as I say a regular stream of new features and improvements will be released over the coming weeks and months so that you will always be using the latest and most up-to-date version of Market Samurai.

    I hope this clarifies things, and gives you the information that you need.

    Hi Brent,

    Any idea how soon we can register our paid version? I realize we got a reduced price because it was in beta…but…we should at least expect some features that are not available on the free trial version or at least have a concrete date of when we can expect something. I am starting to get a little nervous about paying for a promise?

  44. Hi Cathy,

    When we “flick the switch” on the registration system, all users (trial and paid) will be required to enter their registration key to gain access to Market Samurai (in the case of trial users, it will be for 40 days – paid users it will be permanent).

    Originally, we had planned to “flick the switch” on the registration system in early September.

    But demand for Market Samurai far surpassed our expectations, we received thousands of new users, and thousands of enquiries. Our support team is only now recovering, and getting our average response times down to days and hours rather than weeks.

    When the registration system is activated, we can expect that a small portion of people will have questions – and with 10,000′s of Market Samurai users, even if just 1-2% of all users have questions, that’s still hundreds of enquiries for the support team to respond to.

    That’s why it’s important that the support team is on top of existing support before we launch, and why the registration system has been delayed.

    I’m expecting that the registration system will be turned on shortly though, now that support only has around 300 active enquiries. We’ll be giving everyone a few days notice via email though.


  45. Can’t wait til the affiliate program finally launches!

    I bought the program few months ago but i still can’t use some of the features of this program
    will you please let me know when this will be available

  47. Hi Damian,

    I had a look into your purchase, and (like Dagwood above) you purchased Market Samurai at the most significantly discounted price.

    The reason for this price was to reward people who got in early.

    Recently, we have focussed on bug-fixing existing features and adding a limited number of new features in previous updates, but the development team will begin working on additional new features again starting tomorrow.

    As I said in a recent comment:

    Over the coming weeks and months, Market Samurai will receive a regular stream of updates.

    Some of these updates will be minor (tweaks and bug fixes);

    Some will be more significant (feature additions, re-writes of existing code to fix any larger bugs we find);

    Some will be major updates (the release of major Market Samurai modules).

    I don’t have a precise release schedule that I can give you, but as I say a regular stream of new features and improvements will be released over the coming weeks and months so that you will always be using the latest and most up-to-date version of Market Samurai.

    I hope this clarifies things, and gives you the information that you need.

    I hope this helps


  48. Can you tell me when you do a phrase or exact match with the estimated cost per click come up. When I do this using the free google tool it only gives me the approx cost per click for ‘broad’ search and I want to know the cpc for phrase and exact. Now that you have added this functionality to Market Samurai (Thanks so much as it was taking me time to have to go between the two tools to get an accurate result, now I don’t have to) does it give you the cpc for all matches as well? I hope so because that will make me very, very happy:) I love this tool!

  49. Hi Pam,

    Have a play – I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised ;)
