Ok, there’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started.

As an owner of Market Samurai (or Article Samurai) you’re serious about SEO. You understand that for you to improve your rankings, you first need to TRACK them.

As you may know, a few months ago, Google made a major change that heavily affected the Rank Tracker module in Market Samurai and Article Samurai. As a result it’s been necessary to rebuild Rank Tracker from scratch…

Here Are Just 3 Of The Great New Features You Get In Your New And ‘Improved’ Rank Tracker…

If you remember using the old Rank Tracker, you’ll recall how frustrating it was to retrieve your data.

Every time you wanted to check your rankings you had to open up Market Samurai or Article Samurai, manually click a button, and then twiddle your thumbs while your ranking data was gathered.

If you had more than a few projects, this process could take hours. Well, that was the ‘old Rank Tracker’…

Here’s What’s New With The New Rank Tracking System:

  • Automatic weekly updates: No longer do you have to remember to check your rankings every week, and then manually click update buttons to retrieve your new ranking data. Now you can just sit back and relax as our new Rank Tracker automatically updates your campaigns for you each week, without you having to lift a finger.

 

  • Email notifications: Not only does the new Rank Tracker update your campaigns automatically each week, it also sends you an email notification as soon as your ranking data has been updated. So you can now focus your undivided attention on your business, until your notification email arrives.

 

  • A simpler interface: Unlike the old Rank Tracker, which drowned you in a sea of numbers, our new Rank Tracker’s simple new interface makes analysing your rankings a breeze — especially if you manage multiple websites, keywords and campaigns all at the same time.

And because the new Rank Tracking system sources ranking data from reliable third party providers, it’s more stable than ever before.

How To Get Started With Rank Tracker In 4 Easy Steps

    1. Open Market Samurai or Article Samurai and update to the latest version

    1. Open the first project you want to upload to the New Rank Tracker

    1. Click on the Rank Tracker Module to activate your FREE 50 Keyword White Belt plan

NOTE: Your window of opportunity to lock in your FREE 50 keyword White Belt plan closes on Friday the 3rd of August. If you don’t want to miss out on your free 50 keyword White Belt plan, you need to activate your Rank Tracker module now. For more information on your free White Belt plan, keep reading…

    1. Upload your historical Rank Tracker data to the cloud

How To Claim Your FREE 50 Keyword Rank Tracking Plan (valued at up to $22.50 per month) By Activating Rank Tracker Before Friday the 3rd of August.

Our big hope was that we would be able to offer a FREE rank tracking plan for existing owners of both Market Samurai and Article Samurai. We wanted to ensure that as many of our customers as possible would be completely unaffected by the changes imposed by Google.

So we analysed the usage patterns of our current customers, and negotiated aggressively with over a dozen ranking data providers in order to understand:

  1. If a FREE plan was even economically possible; and
  2. What a FREE plan would include for our existing users

The good news is that we will be able to offer a great FREE 50 Keyword plan for ALL existing customers of Market Samurai and Article Samurai.

Analysis of our ranking usage data over the past year, revealed the following usage pattern for our current customers:

92% track less than 50 keywords
7% track between 51-500 keywords
1% track over 500 keywords

So, as you can see, our FREE 50 keyword plan exceeds the needs of over 92% of our existing customers. Which means, if you’re part of this majority who track less than 50 keywords, you’ll get the benefit of fully automated rank tracking (where we look up your rankings for you automatically each week) and won’t have to pay a penny for it.

However, there are some important things to note:

    1. While the free plan will be free to you, it is NOT free to us- We will be paying thousands of dollars each month, on your behalf, to underwrite these free plans. We’ve set the freeline at a level that should satisfy the vast majority of users (over 92%), while setting the amount of cash that we need to outlay each month for our customers to a sustainable level.

Rest assured, this won’t bankrupt us, but it’s important to share that as we’ll be footing the bill for these FREE accounts, we had to draw the line somewhere, and a 50 keyword plan strikes a balance of meeting the vast majority of user’s needs, as well as managing our ongoing costs.

 

    1. This offer will ONLY be available for existing Market Samurai (and Article Samurai) owners, or anyone who purchases Market Samurai before Friday the 3rd of August – As our existing customers and trial users are those who will be most affected by the changes, this offer will only be available to the existing ownership base – anyone that has a full version of Market Samurai or Article Samurai, as well as any current trial user who upgrades to the full version before Friday the 3rd of August.

 

    1. After Friday the 3rd of August, the FREE plan for any new customers of Market Samurai will drop to 10 keywords per month- As there is a substantial ongoing cost in providing these FREE plans, the 50 keyword free plan is only available to existing owners (and anyone who upgrades to the full version before Friday the 3rd of August.With over 63,755 customers, you can start to understand why providing this FREE plan will cost us thousands of dollars per month.

      That’s why we can only make this offer available to existing customers. Future customers will be limited to a 10 keyword / month plan.

 

  1. This FREE 50 keyword plan is equivalent to PAID plans that cost up to $22.50 a month- We’ve done a thorough analysis of the competition in the rank tracking service space. Most rank tracking services fail to provide a FREE plan at all, and have a minimum entry price of $29 to $49 a month just to sign up. This being the case, the actual value to you for a comparable 50 keyword plan is anywhere between $5 to $22.50 per month.Only existing customers, and those who purchase the full version of Market Samurai before Friday the 3rd of August, will be entitled to this free 50 keyword plan – which provides up to $22.50 per month of keyword ranking checks, for FREE.
Free 50 keyword white belt plan

After this date the free keyword plan will be reduced to just 10 keywords.

To activate your Rank Tracker module and claim your FREE 50 Keyword Plan:

    1. Open Market Samurai or Article Samurai, and update to the latest version

 

  1. Click on the Rank Tracker Module tab, and your FREE 50 Keyword White Belt plan will automatically be activated. (For more information on how to get started with the new Rank Tracker Click Here)

How To Lock In Your LIFETIME 50% Half-Price Discount On ALL Rank Tracker Higher Keyword Plans

Our ranking usage data analysis shows that our 50 keyword plan will be more than adequate for over 92% of our customers.

However, if you’re one of those who are in the 8% of users who track more than 50 keywords, then we want to make sure that we look after you too.

Before I reveal what the pricing plans are, it’s important to review the competition and see what the cheapest available options are on the market to track more than 50 keywords on a weekly basis:

Competitor

A

B

C

D

Cheapest 50+ keyword plan

$49 / Month

$24 / Month

$19 / Month

$99 / Month

Keywords tracked

250

100

100

1000

Price / Keyword

$0.20

$0.24

$0.19

$0.10

So, if you need to track more than 50 keywords then the cheapest plan from competing services begins at $19 / month, and you can pay as much as $99 / month!

While this might seem like a lot, there are good reasons for the price. There are hard costs to providing an infrastructure to check large numbers of keywords.

When doing our analysis and pricing model we have two definite advantages over our competitors:

    • Most competitor pricing is targeted at SEO agencies– companies with deep pockets. Agencies often charge hundreds or thousands of dollars to their own clients every month, and can therefore afford to pay substantial amounts each month to get their keyword rankings updated for them.Agencies manage multiple clients – needing to track hundreds or thousands of keywords each month. The pricing structure of the plans currently offered in the marketplace reflects this need. Unfortunately, this puts it beyond the reach of many small online business owners, particularly if they only need to track a few hundred keywords.

 

  • Most of our competitors serve a relatively small client base of SEO Agencies – and so are unable to spread their infrastructure costs across tens of thousands of users as we are.

We know who our customers are, and they are very different from the SEO agencies! While we do have some agencies and SEO consultants using our software, most of our users are small online business owners who don’t have hundreds of dollars per month to spend on tracking their rankings.

We’ve taken this need into consideration when coming up with our own Rank Tracking plans.

To ensure that existing customers get the best deal possible, we’re offering two sets of plans:

  1. Plans for our existing customers (or new customers who purchase before Friday the 3rd of August).
  2. Plans for new customers who purchase after Friday the 3rd of August

Here’s a list of what our plans will be for Noble Samurai’s Rank Tracking service:

Rank Tracker Plan

Special Existing
Customer Pricing

(Sign up Before Friday the 3rd of August)

Black Belt

Price / Month: $99
Price / Keyword: $0.04
Keywords: 2500
Price / Month: $198
Price / Keyword: $0.08

So, if you’re an existing customer with 100 keywords, you can track your rankings for only $5 per month. That’s only $0.05 per keyword – less than a quarter of most of our competitors’ offerings!

For all existing customers (and for anyone who upgrades to the full version of Market Samurai before Friday the 3rd of August), you’ll get access to all our retail plans, but at a 50% Half-Price Discount!

If you study the plans above, you’ll see that even our future retail plans (which kick in only for new customers who purchase after Friday the 3rd of August) have a price per keyword less than half of most of our competitor’s offering. To get the same price per keyword from competing services, you’d need to spend at least $99 per month!

We’d love to be able to offer FREE ongoing Rank Tracking to all our affected users, however, for reasons I’ve already covered, economically this is just not possible.

Our 50 keyword FREE plan, which meets the needs of over 92% of our customers, will cost us thousands of dollars each month to cover.

If you’re one of the handful who tracks over 50 keywords (and you’re an existing customer), we are able to give you special pricing – less than a quarter of the price of our competitors.

Anyone who purchases our product after Friday the 3rd of August will be able to choose from our retail plans, which are still great value – at less than half the price of most of our competitors.

To see how to change your plan, just watch the video below.

Why Does The New Rank Tracker Provide Weekly updates?

With just a few exceptions, the majority of our competitors provide only weekly ranking updates, and for good reasons:

    • If you do regularly monitor rankings you’ll notice daily fluctuations in your results.This daily “noise” distorts the real picture of what is happening to your rankings.The vast majority of SEO professionals check their rankings on a weekly or fortnightly basis. It is generally accepted among SEO circles that checking rankings more often than this provides little value. It’s the equivalent of monitoring the stock price of your shares on a minute by minute basis. It’s too granular to provide any meaningful or actionable trends.

 

  • There is a real, tangible hard cost to providing large volumes of keyword rankings.There is a significant infrastructure that needs to be built to look up millions of keywords per month. Providing weekly rankings means four checks per month per keyword.Providing daily rankings involves seven times as many keyword lookups, which translates directly into seven times the cost. Services that provide daily rankings are significantly more expensive per keyword to track – and rightly so!

In the interests of keeping keyword rankings as accessible and as affordable as possible to our customers, we have opted to initially provide only weekly ranking reports. However, if there is sufficient demand we may introduce an option for immediate paid updates in the future.

What’s Unique About Our New Rank Tracker Service? How Does It Compare With The Competition?

If you haven’t really used the Rank Tracker module before, or haven’t checked it out for a while, here’s a quick recap of its unique features (beyond being just a quarter of the price of the competition).

They say that “feedback is the breakfast of champions”, and from the beginning Rank Tracker was designed to provide rapid feedback about the “effects” of your SEO link-building work and SEO strategy.

    1. Rank Tracker not only checks your ranking in the 3 major search engines, but also reports the number of links that are pointing to each of your ranking pages – Typically, as your link-building work increases, you’ll see an increase in the number of links, followed by an increase in your rankings. It’s a leading indicator to rankings, and only Noble Samurai’s Rank Tracker offers this feature. (SEO professionals love this feature – because it provides evidence of all the hard link-building work you’ve been doing)

 

    1. Rank Tracker shows you the rankings for EVERY SINGLE WEB PAGE THAT YOU CONTROL – It’s common in modern SEO to use multiple domains to rank for keywords. Most other Rank Tracking services can only track one domain, and only tell you the highest ranking you hold. We allow you to track any number of domains, as well as special URLs like YouTube videos. We show you all the rankings you hold in the top 100 results, not just the highest one.

 

    1. Rank Tracker allows you to track unlimited domains for a single keyword – Most other rank tracking solutions on the market charge their customers based on a concept called “keyword pairs”. If you wish to track your keyword rankings on a keyword for 5 different domains, you’d have to enter that keyword in 5 times, eating into your monthly quota. In Rank Tracker, that will count as only a single keyword – so your Keyword quota goes a lot further.

 

    1. Rank Tracker allows you to track the rankings on Web 2.0 sites (such as YouTube and Squidoo), that you control, but don’t own! – Many solutions on the market limit you to only tracking pages on a single domain, or force you to track each Web 2.0 site as another “keyword pair”, eating into your limited keyword quota. As you know, YouTube and Web 2.0 sites often comprise a critical part of modern SEO. Only Rank Tracker allows you to add as many Web 2.0 web pages as you like – while only using up a single keyword of your weekly quota.

 

    1. 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.

 

  1. Rank Tracker manages the issues of Google “localization” and “personalisation”- 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.
