Keywords, OCI and More

Greetings, fellow warriors.

Today we’ve released (yet) another incremental upgrade to Market Samurai – small but important fixes and improvements to your work-flow – version 0.80.5.

There are a few bugs which we’re clearing up:

There was an issue with saving Keyword Research data which a lot of people were running into.

That’s been fixed, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience that’s caused.  It was a tiny bug to do with the order of loading and saving, but tiny bugs can have big repercussions like that!

Also, many were reporting OCI data failing to come back.

Microsoft changed the way OCI data was offered, which resulted in Market Samurai not knowing how to “read” the results.  We’ve updated the OCI data capture procedure, so you should all be able to gauge the commercial intent of keywords once more.  Let us know how that goes for you.

There was also an issue with the in-line browser not closing properly, leaving videos running (with the sound).  This has been fixed.

What’s new in this release?

Per-Project Settings

If you’re starting a new project, you might notice that new options have appeared!  Or rather – old options?

We’ve moved the Region settings and Adult Filter option from the global Settings menu to per-project.  A few times it’s happened where I had set the Region while working on one project, then moved to a different one and wondering why I’m getting strange results – it was still set, of course!  Now it can be set on every project.

You can set it for your existing projects by clicking “Project Settings” and selecting the Region and choosing to include or not include adult content.

This also means the “Google” menu in Settings has disappeared, since these were the only two options there.

What else have we added?  We’ve changed a few factors around the SEO Competition module, which hopefully you can see for yourself.

But ladies and gentlemen – there’s a lot, LOT more where this has come from.  Expect bigger things soon. :)

Talk to you soon!

EDIT: Oh – one more thing!  You should find that the buttons for adding and removing Negative Keywords are a lot faster now.  Enjoy!
