The Return of SEOTC, SEOUC and Golden Rules Revamped

Share Button

Title and URL Competition are back!

A few weeks ago, much to our dismay, we were forced to retire some of the Keyword Research module’s most used and loved features.

Due to restrictions from Google, the columns SEOTC (the number of results that contain a keyword in the Title tag), SEOUC (the number of results that contain the keyword in the URL) and their local variants were no longer working effectively for our users, and in many cases were causing the Keyword Research process to become extremely sluggish.

From the moment they were removed from Market Samurai we began our search in earnest to find a way to bring these important, much-loved metrics back to the Keyword Research Module, while also keeping Market Samurai as swift as possible.

I am happy to announce that we have brought back SEOTC, SEOUC and their local variants back to the Keyword research, albeit in a slightly reduced fashion.

Instead of being able to fetch the SEOTC / SEOUC data for every single keyword you have, we’ve added a “check” option next to each keyword, which will retrieve the data for that keyword only.

This means that you can retrieve this valuable data on a keyword-by-keyword basis, after you’ve applied your other filters.

This restriction on being able to fetch large blocks of SEOTC / SEOUC data is a result of a restriction within Google on the number of SEOTC / SEOUC data that can be retrieved in quick succession.

While this does mean that you can no longer draw this data for an entire batch of keywords at once, you can still use SEOTC / SEOC in your analysis to further narrow your keyword lists.

We recommend that you perform all your regular filtering first, and then “cherry pick” the SEOTC / SEOUC data from the most promising keywords that survive your filtering process.

This screenshot shows how to access this new SEOTC / SEOUC functionality in the Keyword Research module.

SEOTC, SEOUC and SEOTCR Return

Simply click the word “check” for the data you want, and Market Samurai will gather the figures you have requested.

Golden Rules Filters Update

Since the release of Google’s new Keyword Tool, the data that Google has provided has changed quite significantly.

When the new tool rolled out, Google announced that Traffic figures generated by the new tool would no longer include data from their search partners, such as Amazon and YouTube, and instead would include only data from the Google Search Engine itself. This lead to a reduction in overall Traffic values.

The problem with this, is that our recommended keyword filter values (which we use in our Golden Rules filter presets in the Keyword Research Module) now filter out too many keywords, often leaving our users with a very small handful or even no keywords surviving the filtering process.

We have been monitoring these changes and have evaluated how they have changed the keyword research process. The result is an updated set of values for the Noble Samurai Golden Rules and Long Tail filters.

The latest version of Market Samurai contains these updated values, already incorporated into the Golden Rules and Long Tail filters within the Keyword Research module.

We will also be updating our training materials over the coming months to reflect these new values.

To get access to these metrics, it will be necessary to update your software.

You can find instructions on updating here in our Knowledgebase.

I hope that the new versions of these old favourites help to improve your Keyword Research experience.

Warm regards,

Alex Green

  1. Welcome Back, SEOTC!

    I’m not sure why Google is able to raise the limits and keep updating all their services but it’s the opposite with their Keyword Tool. They keep removing stuff, putting limits instead of being more helpful in this arena. ATM, I don’t see CPC in the Google Keyword Tool I only have (Competition, Global Monthly Searches, Local Monthly Searches, Extracted From Webpage) .. Are you experiencing the same?

    Martin replied:

    Google could offer some incredible tools for site owners – but I think they’d rather the SEO industry just didn’t exist. Hence why the Keyword Tool is much hobbled from what it could be. I think we’re all supposed to randomly create content and hope it’s what people are looking for, just like the good old days :-)

    Not sure what you mean – we were talking about the Keyword Tool..?

    Sure, the other products are great (I’m not a Google basher). But big G does heavily restrict the data and functionality of the Keyword Tool, and not because it’s price decision.

    CPC will show up in its normal place in Google’s Keyword Tool if you log into your AdWords account first. If you don’t have one, and really need or want the CPC data, it’s fairly simple to create an AdWords account.

    The new method for selecting (check) for SEOTC & SEOUC suits me much better anyway. Its quicker, more efficient.

  21. Really? So if I have 100 keywords in my list and I want to see this data I have to click 200 times? Seems a bit to “interactive”. I want to set it, let the software find the information and I’ll come back an hour later and look at it. The way it is now, it’s practically useless. I’m not gonna sit there and click for every keyword. Keep working at this feature. It’s not as good as it was.

    Unfortunately gathering this data in large quantities is no longer viable, so we strongly advocate a cherry picking approach – narrowing your keyword scope using other filters first before using title and URL competition to help you make the final decision.

  26. I’d also like to see the option within MS, that allows auto harvesting SEOTC data. I don’t understand the logic of some here, saying that it’s better this way, when we need to click every result, because it’s faster. If you don’t need all that data, simply deactivate this parameter when doing research, and you don’t have to wait…

    Still quite handy, though after a few clicks sometimes the captcha will appear, but at least I don’t have to type it on the google myself.

    Unfortunately whilst we’d love to update the training videos immediately, the amount of work behind the scenes to republish even one video is really quite large! We’ve put notes in the training dojo for all materials that are affected to ensure you know what’s changed and where, and we’ve laid out a plan for updating the videos themselves over time.

    Ian Brodie | Marketing Speaker replied:

    Alex,

    Given that you’ve actually updated the training material in the wider sense by putting the updates as notes in the dojo, I’d say that when you describe updates rather than the more scary “we’ll be updating the training material in a few months”.

    Something along the lines of “We’ve updated the training material by adding notes on this to the dojo. We’ll be updating the videos when we do the next round of filming in a couple of months”.

    Might scare a few less people!

    Alex Green replied:

    Hi Karen, this change is in response to the changing landscape of SEO – the old SEOC value was too restrictive and wasn’t as useful when trying to narrow down a keyword, so we’ve adjusted the figure to make it more effective.

  36. 37

    Okay, so we have the metrics back, that’s really cool!

    Obviously I fully understand why you’ve had to do it this way, but it’s certainly a bit of a pain having to click on each individual link to reveal the figures.

    I’m not entirely sure if this would make a difference, but how about giving us the option to use our own private proxies for these metrics?

    Now I’m well aware not everyone has (or wishes to pay monthly for) their own private proxies, but many IM and SEO professionsls that use MS certainly do.

    For example, how about this:

    If MS detects that we have a list of over 20 private proxies available, then it could add the ability for us to return more results at once using those proxies on rotation (maybe even add custom user agents on rotation too)

    The more private proxies we have, the more results MS could safely return in one go without us having to click loads of links, maybe give us the ability to return single rows all at once, or entire columns depending on how many personal private proxies are detected.

    Is this feesable or are there other issues involved with Google that would make a feature like this difficult/impossible to implement?

    Also, was just wondering, when we do add and choose to use our own private proxies, does MS randomly mix those with your own proxy network, or does it use just one or the other?

    Keep up the good work guys!
    All the best,
    G

    This may be something we’ll look into in the future, but for the immediate future the functionality will be remaining as it is.

    I understand that the new process is less convenient than the old, which is why we now advocate the use of SEOTC as a ‘cherry pick’ method – using it as the last stage of your analysis once other filters are all in place.

  39. Hi Market Samurai Staff

    Thanks for the update. I do love this feature. By the way, I have something that I think you guys should look at.

    Recently, i found out that Market Samurai gives AWCPC results different from Google Keyword Tools. I found out accidentally when I ran some keywords in the Google Keyword Tool along side with the Market Samurai. Market Samurai tends to give less AWCPC than Google Keyword Tools! Any reasons behind this?

    Another, I saw that Google Keyword Tools shows Search Trends up to Mar 2011. I’m sure it’s permanent but it’s cool if you can return this Search Trends as well so I don’t have to go back and forth to check keywords with the Google Trends.

    Thanks and waiting for your reply.

    Thank GOD these features have returned! It is a pain to do it manually.

    In some of the top posts people mentioned that the Google search tool could provide better information. This is true the numbers are highly inaccurate, but they give you an idea of what the volume is.

    When I want to know the real numbers before I build a site, I will run a PPC campaign on Google that is geotargeted and use the exact match [keyword phrase]. Then I let it run for a week or a month. This gives me more accurate information. Yes it takes longer to do your research and it does cost money, but if you do try this you will be amazed at how off the numbers Google actually provides really are.

  61. Thanks for the update,

    SEOTC is very useful so thanks for bringing it back and its good to see the golden Rules updated. Training would be good but I guess its better to have a working , meaningful tool and figure out how to use it rather than no tool at all!

  62. Sounds like a positive development as opposed to no SEOT. It is a bit unfortunate that we can only handpick the SEOT for certain keywords,this was often used as my main filter….

    Do you have any suggestions on a different work flow?

    Mark@Nespresso Review replied:

    At the risk of showing my own stupidity …. I discovered something useful a little while ago. It may help some other users of MS.

    (Market Samurai – please correct me if I’m wrong)

    In doing LOCAL market research I obviously want to see the Google results that someone would normally get when searching from that country.

    I had wrongly assumed that the LOCAL comp, title and url searches (SEOLC, SEOLTC and SEOLUC) would give me this (the equivalent of Google’s &gl=) for the country in my project settings.

    I was wrong – the straight SEOTC and SEOUC will return the &gl= results for whichever country is set in your project settings.

    The SEOLTC or SEOLUC results narrow this down further to the equivalent of someone clicking the only show me “pages from the UK” (for example).

    In my mind the SEOTC and SEOUC give the results that most people would actually search for so I no longer use SEOLTC or SEOLUC.

    This has saved me a lot of time and inaccuracy but also cuts down on the number of Google search requests.

  75. I was a bit troubled when I saw these two were taken out. I am new to the arena of Internet Marketing and every course I bought praised you guys for making this available. I dont make great money as yet but I decided to buy the product because of all the praise I heard. I have heard others say there pulling out of using MS but I knew you guys would come back strong. Thanks for brining them back.

  77. SEOTC is very useful, so thanks for bringing back and its good to see the Golden Rules up to date. The training would be good but I think it’s better to have a job, valid and find ways to use it instead of any tools at all!

  78. I have been using Market Samurai now for 18 months and met some of the guys back in London in the autumn at the Challenge conference and can simply say that if its fixable this company will sort it out and are very professional in all they do. Best thing I ever bought and also best value.

  80. 81

    I’m doing local research and somehow the SEOTC is accurate and the SEOLTC is very inaccurate… It’s also bigger then the SEOTC score… which is unlikely.. Very confused now.. where does SEOLCT get it’s data from?

  81. I have my own samurai to fight the giant like Google. YAY.

    So good to have this software.

    Thanks for everything.
