My name is Michael – I’m one of the developers behind Market Samurai – and Brent’s asked me to introduce some new features that we’ve released today!
Have you ever wanted to compare your the SEO stats of your website against those of your competitor?
In version 0.80.18, we added a feature to the SEO Competition module to allow you to do just that: check out the video for a walkthrough of the new feature.
You can put your domain into the list – (e.g. “vintageelectricguitars.com”) – or you can analyse a specific page on your website – (e.g. “http://www.vintageelectricguitarblog.com/vintage-electric-guitar/gabriel-v18-amplifier-fantastic-amp”).
Here are some uses of the new feature:
- Analyze multiple pages on your website to see what it would take to get a double-listing in Google for your chosen keyword;
- Check stats for any website, webpage or Web 2.0 site (Squidoo, Hubpages) that you create;
- Analyze competitors that don’t appear in the top 10 spots in Google.
You’ll find the new button at the bottom right of the SEO Competition module:
You can use this feature to look at the stats for your website against those of your competition – perhaps you need to increase your backlinks, or maybe you forgot to add your site to the Yahoo Directory – now you can find out using Market Samurai.
(Note: You’ll need to create a new project if you want to use this new SEO Competition feature – it won’t work with old, saved projects… And really, you want to look at the latest SEO stats for your site and your competitors anyway.)
By the way – you might have noticed another new feature that we released quietly a few weeks ago – tooltips!
Did you notice them?
You can now hover your mouse over some of the more confusing acronyms – eg, SEOTC in keyword research – to get an explanation of what they mean.
The tooltips, and the “Add Custom URLs” feature inside the SEO Competition module were both feature requests made by Market Samurai users – just like you.
If you want to make a suggestion, send us a note here. Not all suggestions will become part of Market Samurai, but we work hard to make sure the most commonly requested features are adopted.
P.S. – Andrew, Arlen and I have been working hard on some other new features that are all coming together at once – and will be released very soon.
P.P.S. – Pretty soon we’ll be announcing new stuff so frequently that we won’t be able to send out email announcements to everyone. Instead, we’ll just upload details to our blog.
