Market Samurai Is Back!

分享按鈕

大家好,

快速更新我們在恢復市場功能武士的進展和一些常見問題的解答。

首先登場的,非常感謝你你們誰已經張貼,發送電子郵件和推特上的各種鼓勵的話(我們的用戶是真棒!)。 正如我們在以前的文章中,我們真的很抱歉停運。

好消息是,由於採用了大週末和一些深夜通過我們的開發團隊,我們主要是重新啟動和運行。 這裡有一個故障...

什麼工作?

好消息是,除了大型排名情況,市場武士的功能現在已經恢復了。 下面是按模塊狀態的故障。

關鍵字研究- 全面運作
請注意,我們將繼續使用谷歌的關鍵字生成,流量和每次點擊費用估算。

我們已經推出了必應的一些競爭對手的估計(見下文為什麼冰的數據在這裡工作)。

搜索引擎優化大賽- 全面運作
請注意,搜索引擎優化的矩陣繼續顯示前10個結果來自谷歌

查看(和共享)競爭矩陣已恢復工作,並像以前一樣(包括顯示谷歌的PageRank排名前10位的競爭網頁)。

由於一些用戶會知道,當在一個特定的URL,搜索引擎優化大賽模塊允許你去探索,看看每一個頂部1000反向鏈接該URL的錨文本和權威性。 這是一個偉大的方式來探索競爭對手的反向鏈接,看到鏈接的機會。

我們已經暫時取代谷歌的PageRank為ACRank(一種替代和不準確的權威),這方面的詳細分析。 我們談論到的數據提供一個更強有力的措施的權力(如PageRank的的mozRank或同等學歷),並會重新審視這個在未來幾個月內。

排名跟踪- 從本地機器上運行
請注意,我們繼續跟踪來自谷歌的排名

作為一項臨時措施,我們已經修改了排名跟踪使用本地計算機,以檢查排名在谷歌。 排名檢查其他引擎必應(Bing和雅虎)繼續通過我們的服務器來運行。 通過本地安裝的應用程序檢查工作的排名為用戶監控少數的關鍵字,但較大的體積通常會導致來自谷歌服務被暫時下降。

顯然,這是不理想的,所以我們正在努力替換排名跟踪服務,我們預計這將需要2-3週才能實現。

迄今為止,我們已經整理好我們的使用統計數據,取得了六個潛在的數據提供者聯繫,並起草了開發一個更新的用戶界面,開始工作。 你可以閱讀更多關於這下面。

常見問題

正如你可能已經猜到,我們的技術支持人員均接受查詢的氾濫,所以我想我可能有助於回答一些常見的問題:

將市場武士成為包月產品?

或者,正如一位​​用戶所說的那樣 - 這一切只是一個伎倆移動到每月付款計劃? 答案(這兩個問題......)沒有。

除了排名跟踪(見下文),市場武士將繼續是一個一次性的費用。 誰一直與我們從一開始(超過3年半前)的用戶都收到大約450免費更新,我們已經跟上了搜索引擎優化的風景所有的各種變化 - 而且會有更多的驚喜!

正如許多人已經意識到,我們相信提供高價值,一次性支付產品,是建立一個忠實的用戶群的最佳方式。

隨著雅虎網站瀏覽器(以前使用回力的鏈接和錨文本分析)的消亡,我們搬到了雄偉壯觀的搜索引擎優化商業安排(以5圖每月費用),並吸收費用而對通過這項巨大的成本的百分之給我們的客戶。

將排名跟踪有月租費,並會是什麼?

谷歌最近的變化意味著,我們不能再可行地拉排名數據,我們的用戶群(超過40萬的用戶總數)。

正如在以前的帖子,初步估計,我們日常數據需求的購買成本為40,000美元一天,一個成本,我們無法吸收。 因此,我們的目的是從一個可靠的供應商批發購買排名數據,使其在通過應用程序訂閱的基礎提供。

我們還不知道什麼是成本排名跟踪將是怎樣的報價將被結構化。 我們所能說的是,不管是什麼原因,據了解,參加我們的模塊是“自由使用”之一,使之成為“付費使用”是不是為我們的客戶好消息。

我們可以肯定地說,我們將在一個位置,提供了一個極具競爭力的價格結構,我們修改排名的服務。 這是可能的,因為我們將要購買散裝的數據和我們的理解,提供了大量的是保持信心和你在一起,我們的用戶的一個重要途徑。

顯然,任何此類方案將是可選的,我們知道,如果你最近購買的市場武士的排名跟踪,覺得你沒有得到你購買你有權獲得退款的價值。

我們還認為此舉將使我們能夠提高在關鍵領域也是功能性的能力。

我可以用排名跟踪我的本地網絡上?

如上文所述,排名跟踪已暫時更新到利用本地計算機的,我們將很快提供一份經修訂的服務,再次從我們的服務器中提取數據。 檢查中到大量的關鍵字從本地計算機可能會導致所有這些在同一個網絡,你就暫時降低谷歌的服務。 在企業環境中,這通常應該避免。

哪裡市場武士現在使用Bing的數據?

重要的-我們將繼續使用谷歌的:

  • 關鍵字生成
  • 流量估算
  • 中共估計
  • 搜索引擎優化的競爭仍然是基於谷歌的搜索結果
  • 排名跟踪繼續跟踪在谷歌的排名(以及雅虎和必應)

然而,我們提出我們的關鍵詞研究模塊中的三個數據點兵(通過其優異的API):
SEOC -包含目標關鍵字短語競爭頁的數目。
SEOTC -與目標關鍵字詞組在標題標籤競爭的頁數。
SEOUC -與目標關鍵字詞組的頁面的URL競爭的頁數。

好消息是,許多用戶依靠SEOTC作為競爭指標,並由於對查詢量的限制,我們以前需要用戶點擊每個關鍵字來觸發數據收集。 使用Bing的整合,我們現在能夠恢復到自動把該數據對所有的關鍵詞使其更快,更容易篩選出具有高SEOTC / SEOUC競爭的關鍵詞。

是兵競爭的有效措施? 我會不會想在谷歌排名?

重要的-我們將繼續使用谷歌的:

  • 關鍵字生成
  • 流量估算
  • 中共估計
  • 搜索引擎優化的競爭仍然是基於谷歌的搜索結果
  • 排名跟踪繼續在谷歌(以及雅虎和必應)跟踪的排名。

SEOC(及相關SEOTC和SEOUC指標)都有助於回答同樣的基本問題“,很多頁面在世界上怎麼會有我的關鍵字呢?”。 或者換一種說法,如果一個關鍵字具有低SEOC指標,它的“稀缺”或“較少使用”網上不是有高SEOC值的關鍵字。

這些措施作為高層次的過濾器,以幫助您剔除潛在的關鍵字,將可能有較強的競爭力。 有低SEOC和低競爭一個合理的相關性。 我們應該注意到,我們已經看到很多情況下,具有較高的SEOC關鍵字的值可以排在很容易和一些低SEOC值是堅不可摧的。

最終,在搜索引擎優化,你只有10的競爭對手,他們走的是排名前10位的排名,你必須取代,以拉流量的網站。 SEOC(及相關措施)應該作為一個基本的過濾器,但從來沒有(讓我重複一遍;!從不)作為選擇的關鍵字,您的網站的主關鍵詞,尤其1的唯一基礎。 一旦你過濾掉可能的高競爭性的關鍵字,這是從搜索引擎優化大賽模塊審核結果(這仍然是基於谷歌的頭版),您可以以合理的確定性決定你能獲得一個排名。

搜索引擎優化大賽模塊,可以一目了然地看到關鍵的SEO指標為每一個你的競爭對手,在排名前10位持倉排名。

那麼,兵行高層次的競爭分析?

由於我們的方法到高層次的競爭分析,歸結為“很多其他網頁怎麼有我在其中的關鍵字?',然後冰是一個偉大的數據源。

秉指標相同的數據(如網頁)為谷歌,儘管是一個後來者到搜索遊戲一些,他們現在擁有一個龐大的數據集(並抓獲了強大的市場份額 - 在美國約30%,其中,通過他們的結果雅虎)。 請記住,這有什麼好做的搜索算法。

我們不是在比較好的返回搜索結果冰與谷歌的相對優點(儘管冰的時代已經來臨在這個空間太)。 這是關於每個搜索引擎的索引的大小 - 和Bing的索引是很容易,現在大到足以提供良好的競爭指標。

此外,雖然許多SEO工具,包括廣泛匹配水平的SEOC風格措施(例如你的目標關鍵字可以被分解為單獨的詞在頁面的任何地方混),市場武士拉動短語匹配的基礎SEOC數據。 這意味著,市場的武士,你看到很多目標頁面包含如何作為一個完整的,完整的詞組關鍵字。 雖然SEOC將永遠只能是仍然是一個高層次過濾,使用詞組匹配的數據一般比較準確的。

為什麼其他的搜索引擎優化的產品不會受到影響?

在過去的三年半時間裡,我們已經非常熟悉谷歌的公差高查詢量。 上週晚些時候和週末,我們觀察到在這種寬容的三個具體及相當激進的改變,我們無法解決儘管額外資源的調配。

作為最大的市場參與者之一,這是很難確定市場武士被抨擊的對象,如果谷歌實施新的政策和我們只是不夠主動觸發限制。 這是非常有可能是以前的唯一工具,提供實時排名分析無限量的關鍵詞之一。 如何等工具將車費,只有時間才能告訴我們。 好消息是,我們已經能夠應對和解決大多數問題。

將市場武士離線六個月?

已經有來自於搜索引擎優化的空間外部各方,在手的問題將把我們六個月的解決估計。 它現在是5日以來,我們觀察到在谷歌的寬容改變了大量的查詢,我們再次有我們的模塊全面運行100%。

我們預計2-3個星期內解決大規模的排名跟踪。

我們有40萬的用戶,為什麼我們不能只是消化成本?

正如你可能知道,有是有限的,我們能買得起賣一次性付款的軟件包,需要持續的人員,基礎設施和數據服務,維護和交付軟件時。

我們有一點點超過50,000名付費用戶,使用免費版本的其餘部分。 雖然我們很幸運,有一個有利可圖的業務和現金儲備,購買我們以前直接拉數據的成本超出了我們的手段。 唯一的一線希望是,與我們享受的用戶群,我們希望能夠通過談判,作為回報,報價排名上非常有競爭力的基礎數據。

再次感謝您的支持! (認真!)

最後,我們想再次道歉,因我方原因造成的停機時間帶來的不便。 我們所有的員工都工作過一些很長的時間來進行必要的更新,我個人很喜歡的說感覺心臟謝謝所有的積極評價,電子郵件和推特,我們已經看到了指日可待的事。

我們的承諾一如既往,以使市場武士最好的網絡營銷的投資,你可以做到的。

    Read thousands of comments from all over the IM forum that you guys are dead :)

    I knew you gonna make it for us.

    PS change to monthly subscription or you guys gonna bankrupt :)

  4. Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the update, moving the rank tracker to a separate product is fine.

    Will you keep the local computer rank tracking in Market Samurai. Also, doesnt it use proxies and why would there be a problem with the local network ?

    謝謝

    Yeah, please keep the local computer rank tracking! At least people will be able to check a few keywords at once. I use this service daily for a few keywords and I don't have any problems with Google.

    keeping the local computer rank tracking in doesn't make sense from the vendor point of view, as in that case they'd no longer be able to monitor (and act upon?) the keyword/ranking searches of their client base.

    <<

    Huh ? First I dont see any reason for the vendor to be tracking my keywords – even more I dont see a disclosure that MS is actually doing so.

    Additionally of course local searches do not prevent them from tracking the keywords at the same time and sending whatever data they want to their servers at the end of a local search.


    儀帕金森回答道:

    您好,我們不監控你使用的關鍵字。 而關鍵字都經過我們的服務器上的所有關鍵字的數據是在24小時內刪除。

  5. 很高興地看到一切再次合作。 我用的排名跟踪每天,但我很樂意與您目前所面對的變通方法。 我期待著包月版本。 也許這可能是一個成本的使用基礎。 非常感謝您的所有辛苦得到的MS回到工作狀態。

  6. 你的競爭對手稱,目前在所有的谷歌算法沒有變化。 是真的嗎?


    儀帕金森回答道:

    沃爾克嗨,有沒有谷歌的算法改變 - 這是他們如何處理大量查詢更多的技術變化。 在尤金的博客文章“常見問題”中討論此

  7. 感謝您的更新和辛勤工作,盡快解決這個問題。 你可以給一個估計有多少關鍵詞可以跟踪使用我們自己的電腦每次前谷歌限制我們? 你覺得使用代理服務器或VPN有助於增加轉動IP地址的限制?

    Battra喜

    你可以(而且一直能夠)在首選項表中輸入你自己的IP的進入市場的武士。 這肯定會延續能力。 我們不大力推廣呢,因為直至最近發生的事件也一直沒有價值,它(這超出了普通用戶的技術能力)。

    在安全使用方面,你的milage可以變化。 在個人項目我跑10個關鍵字下到前50名,沒有任何問題。 堅持合理的搜索深度不包括詞組匹配的排名位置是兩個主要的技術來避免服務質量下降。

    歡呼聲中,本

    謝謝,奔! 我猜MS奇妙的作品了,我沒有太注意的喜好設置框:-P


    瑞恩說:

    我們將能夠繼續使用排名跟踪我們本地機器即使在訂閱服務推出? 我很好與所提供的訂閱服務,但想用我自己的代理人,而不是有一個額外的包月服務的選項。


    本Stickland回答:

    嘿Battra

    我很抱歉這vauge,但得到的答复是,我們不知道在這一點上。 我們深與潛在供應商的討論,我懷疑這會取決於在哪個供應商,我們選擇我們的服務和什麼樣的影響與它們集成的一部分。

    我可以說的是,我知道你正在使用外部代理,所以我們至少應該考慮在我們的審議情況的用戶的數量。

    乾杯,

  8. 尤金 - 我只能想像的壓力,你已經經歷了這幾天的水平,要感謝你解決這樣一個明確的態度問題。 就個人而言,我跟踪只是極少數的關鍵字,所以我應該沒與我的本地機器跟踪他們。 我會等待,看看有什麼樣的付款計劃,你拿出。 只要保持它的經濟實惠,我們誰沒有做大規模的關鍵字跟踪。

  9. 太好了! 我是市場的武士和所有的熱心用戶的我可以說是一個很大的感謝你,你很誠實的傢伙是誰值得尊敬。 關於冰:這是一個很好的事情,你有谷歌意識到,他們確實有一定的競爭。

  10. 10

    嗨尤金,

    感謝您的瘋狂的努力......

    我插嘴的一件事...

    追踪至多20個關鍵字和操作在微小生尺寸環境。 在使用谷歌本地搜索這個水平(只要是使用了美國搜索API,而不是被定位受我的IP)是完全為我好。

    我理解大客戶提供更大的關鍵字列表和大型SEO'ers需要完整的數據。

    當你終於做了更新與數據提供者,我們能有一個分層服務?

    目前,我跟踪17關鍵字查找microniche,他們都在排名前20位排名......所以這是太低的查詢/ API訪問量,以保證我升級。

    對於人員跟踪數百個關鍵字和搜索1000年排名深,我明白,這是一個不同的使用水平,應該是一個不同層的服務。

  11. yayy! 我就知道你們會渡過難關! 恭喜

    至於長期趨勢走,好像搜索引擎執意要拆除訪問,而不是在一個更有效的方式提供其數據。

    他們似乎被破壞合法網站管理員誰試圖利用這些數據來提供所有的內容保護消費者免受黑暗的一面的名稱更好的用戶體驗所做的努力。

    這種模式似乎是在重複全球社會的各個方面展示自己...

  12. 非常感謝您的更新,你的辛勤工作。 有趣的是,累和最重要的挑戰性最少。 我期待著點燃“新”的MS。

    乾杯

    莫里斯·傑克遜回答說:

    嗨,大家好

    我盡量避免事件所帶來的下意識的反應和意見,如這一點。

    The top and bottom of this is that MS is still one of the best Keyword Tools around and for the price, if this is all we were getting it would still be a good deal!

    I think you have all responded magnificently to this issue and the MS team (and company) should be applauded for the way in which they have handled the problem.

    I for one am happy to be using a tool/service knowing that it has the highest level of service available – all for less than $150 one time!

    Thanks Guys.

  13. I am so happy that MS is back and I can enjoy it now.

  14. Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the update and I think a huge level of congratulations and praise is due to you and the team for your handling of the whole situation.

    As a new user of Market Samurai I've been extremely impressed at the professionalism shown in both your response to the changes and the way in which you've kept us informed – great job well done!

    As I've previously read from other users posts I can't believe anyone is seriously considering requesting a refund! The combination of the very low 'one off' price and the support and tutorials freely offered, along with service and commitment like we've seen over the last few days shows what a great product and commitment the MS team have, the freely provided videos alone are worth the initial purchase price!

    Keep up the good work, I look forward to working with you for a long time to come.

  15. Thanks for your update.I am using this software too

  16. Great stuff Eugene. I am also curious how many words we can track and what are the ramifications if by chance we try to pull data on too many? 歡呼

    Thank you very much for being so transparent with the updates and for such a hard work.

    I really love MarketSamurai, and your commitment with us is a really important part of the product.

    Don't hesitate to ask if you need any halp. 非常感謝。

  18. I cannot vist http://www.marketsamurai.com/ for a few minutes. I have thought it is down again. Oh it is back. However, I find some golden role keywords are hard to rank but some high competitive keyword are easy to be ranked in to pageone. I think you need make some improvement on keywords analysis. For exameple, you may define the competiveness by analysing sites from page1-3 backlinks nubmer and quality. Try to create some useful index to give user a better experience.

  19. A big thankyou for the enormous effort that has gone into delivering the best possible service throughout what must have been an incredibly difficult time for everyone involved at Market Samurai.

    I rely on the tools in Market Samurai and it's great to have it back.

    With regard to the Rank Checker, I think that a tiered pricing structure would be best, based on the number of queries made. This would enable individual users to decide which package would be best for them and someone just starting with one website, or growing their business and having just a handful, could still enjoy the same service as someone with hundreds of sites – without being overburdened by another cost at a time when money is very tight.

    Most of all, I wanted to say thank you for keeping us informed, every step of the way – which is a rare thing anywhere these days! No BS, no “sob story”, just a clear explanation of what went wrong, why it went wrong, what you are doing about it and how long it will take to fix. What more could anyone ask for!

  20. At least keep Rank Tracker to the local machine version. I can use VPN and perform searches. It will be good enough for me.

  21. Good news – and thanks for your extraordinary reactivity and honest communication on all these issues. I for one will be prepared to pay a monthly fee to be able to track rankings.

    I have 2 quick questions about the switch to Bing :

    1. Does Bing have the same PBR % issue as Google – ie should we still filter out anything below 15% as you advised us to do when looking at Google data?

    2. Is Bing picking up local SEOT ? Im running some analysis this morning and I'm quite convinced that the numbers are too inflated for the local market I'm looking at (France) – as if it's getting Google data here. I just can't believe that there is as much search on the terms im looking at, considering Bing is less than 10% of search market in France.

    Once again, you guys do a great job.
    Keep it up.

    GOD SAVE MARKET SAMURAI

    謝謝

  25. 是的,我認為你應該實施好代理服務器的解決方案。 我們大多數人都支付代理和可能解決這一問題的最佳解決方案。 我們已經為代理支付,我們不應該再為其他的外部代理支付。

    執行迴轉代理的排名跟踪,請。

  26. 幹得好,大家好,我很高興的排名跟踪回來哪怕是暫時的。 我剛開始使用它在一個新的項目,然後......砰! ......就壞了。 我有興趣看看現在成本核算模式。

    感謝這麼多的獲取市場武士備份等快速上手!

    我必須承認,我買了市場武士幾個月前,但都沒有真正使用過但因為我在發起新的業務(這意味著我有不同的東西做了很多)的過程。

    我剛才移動到發射前我的公司,這意味著我會投入了大量的內容在我的網站。 所以,我需要市場的武士了。 因此,市場武士的時機下降已經不能更糟。

    所以,我真的很高興你有回來了,所以趕緊跑! 太謝謝你了!

    請您更新您的培訓視頻嗎? 我知道你很忙,但是這將是特別有用的。 :)

  31. 感謝您的更新。 所有的改變將在與谷歌,這是一個必須的,我們跟上。 我認為,用戶應該支付(最低限度)的排名跟踪是唯一公平的。

  32. 感謝您的更新和誠實。 大加讚賞。

  33. 令人吃驚的是時代的MS更新的軟件版本,在過去數天數。 每次我拉起來的MS,有一個新的版本。 我用的排名跟踪每天,我害怕有一天我要為它付出。

  34. 當對排名我一直打了驗證碼,從谷歌檢查10個關鍵字...不過MS似乎並沒有處理這個(除非你今天剛加入的話)......它只是停止...

    此外,必應已收錄相比,谷歌significanly少網頁...我的一些網站,我們正在談論兵20頁,谷歌12000頁...

    顯然,如果冰少的網頁索引的SEOC,SEOTC和SEOUC數字將是不準確的......

    你是否打算重新instate谷歌的SEOC,SEOTC和SEOUC?

    最後,一個大大的感謝MS團隊的一切! 你們是太棒了!


    馬歇爾說:

    安德斯 - 如果您運行的博客網站,谷歌正忙於索引你的標籤頁,可設置所有的搜索詞。 也許你的類別頁面也和你的資料館網頁。 我什至發現他們進入我的可濕性粉劑內容/插件目錄中的某些插件,直接在發布的網頁進行交互。

    í一個月前閱讀來自海洋宇宙票答复,他們認為谷歌是什麼做的搜索詞,但我不記得的時刻。

    所以,你有幾個選擇。 使用谷歌網站管理員工具,以及在robots.txt中不允許等待數個月的垃圾掉出來。

    或使用像SEOUltimate或約斯特的搜索引擎優化WordPress插件插件將加入noindex,nofollow的所有標籤,搜索條件等。 谷歌需要一定的樂趣了網站管理的這些日子。

    至於谷歌剩餘的免費搜索引擎。 那些日子可能即將結束。

    至於MS去。 感謝尤金顯示在SEO界他們是錯的反對者。 並提供客戶服務你平時優秀的水平。

    嗨馬歇爾,

    感謝您的回复,你的秘訣......

    在這種情況下,我在談論20000產品頁面商店,因此,最好的指標應該是更大 :-)

    不管怎麼說,這裡的問題是,如果冰已經收錄顯著少頁的SEOC,SEOTC和SEOUC號將是遙遠......而在谷歌看到的不會是代表競爭...

  35. thank you for the update I really appreciate it.

  36. Thanks for the detailed post, Eugene. 保持良好的工作!

  37. Great news, was so nice to update and have everything fully functional again!

    Great piece of software guys, I think we all appreciate your ongoing support and communication with your user base.

    My favorite toy is back :) 謝謝你們

  39. Great to see that it is back given that we paid for that service.

    Can we select whether Rank Checker should use our local PC or your servers?

    I would not mind running it locally for my small no of keywords.

  40. Great update guys. The software development game is a fickle thing. So grateful to See the hard work you Aussies are putting in there.

    Keep up the great work, it really is appreciated.

  41. Just have one thing to say : THANK YOU !!!

    Thank you for providing us with such an amazing tool for only a one-time payment.
    Like many others, my (little) investment in Market Samurai has already paid itself more than tenfold. So using this amazing tool is 100% benefit !

    And thank you also for being so tranparent about the situation. I only wish all the suppliers could be like you !

  42. We really appreciate being kept in the loop Eugene. If you end up having to charge for Rank Tracker I hope the little people who don't use it often are not penalised with one price fits all.
    Thanks for your wonderful service.

  43. I'd love to see the ability to rotate via our own proxies rather than paying a monthly fee – I have plenty of servers out there I could use.

    The rank tracker is my most-used module of MS.

  44. GREAT JOB Eugene!!!!! Keep Moving FORWARD! :)
    MS is one from many best SEO software I ever use.

  45. 謝謝你把市場武士回來得這麼快再次運行。

    我不怪你不能夠自己吸收這些怪異的索賠。 40,000美元一天? 豈有此理!

  46. 非常高興看到這樣一個良好的客戶溝通。 大公司可以向你們學習......
    剛剛意識到,你們是位於紐納華(哈哈...這是近Doncaster東: - )。

  47. 非常感謝您的更新,你的辛勤工作。

  48. 首先,作為一個互聯網營銷,我想說的是市場武士一直是我做的最好的投資!

    不過,我也有關於與冰的SEOC數據的準確性的關注。 作為一個例子,我針對一個關鍵字顯示在必應小於千片競爭,但正顯示出85K谷歌。 這是令人擔憂的,如果數據不能作為依據。

    你的客戶服務是我還是一個客戶的原因。 請不要停下來。

    您的大力支持和transparancy就是為什麼你永遠是優於搜索引擎優化的PowerSuite的原因。

    感謝和祝賀大家在市場武士 - 你顯然已經挑燈夜戰的桶裝載和這種反應和性能只會增加忠誠度,並鼓勵代言。

  51. 我已經推遲了超過一年買市場的武士,主要是因為我不知道它會持續多久得到支持。 已經購買了許多搜索引擎優化方案,在過去的沒有生存更改搜索引擎的API或條款也進行了更改,看產品,如市場武士有承諾支持其發展。

    該產品在過去幾天收到了一直以來的支持居然說服了我繼續前進,終於買到它,並添加我的支持。

  52. 為把事情定這麼快做得很好。

    而不是看著充電的排名跟踪模塊為負,我個人認為這可能是一個很好的機會,進一步發展提供了農產品的人都樂於按月支付的。

    There are some great products out there that I always think 'I wish MS had that', such as SEM Rush – I would happily pay a monthly fee for the Rank Tracker module with more features that saved me from using/paying for other tools. With that in mind, Top-3 things I wish the Rank Tracker could do…

    1. Identify keywords a website is ranking for that have not been entered into the Rank Tracker (like SEM Rush).

    2. Have better output options for reports (such as branded PDF's for SEO Consultants).

    3. Keyword alerts when keywords we're targeting enter/leave the first page of Google.

    No rush, if you could get this sorted by next week, that would be great. ;o)

  53. You are the team! Thanks for fast update of program. Will be nice to add some more functions to “seo competition” also.

  54. Hi Eugene,
    As problems arise by everybody the quality of a company is basically how they are handling and trying to solve the issues. From that standpoint I give you guys a big thumbs up, especially the communication towards us as customers.

  55. Obviously if Bing has less pages indexed the SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC figures will be less accurate…

    Do you intend to re-instate Google for SEOC, SEOTC and SEOUC?

    And finally, a great big thanks to the MS team for everything! You guys are

  56. Thank you for putting it all back together.. Great work. I cant imagine my work load without Market Samurai.. Thank you so much.. Keep it up.

  57. How many keywords can we track before being limited?

  58. As Market Samurai customers we've had it pretty good so far. Your product is awesome, the training excellent – and I love the affiliate program :-)

    I'd be happy to pay a subscription for the Rank Tracker – just don't make it unaffordable, guys …

    Thanks for all the hard work to fix this problem

    Robcarl回答:

    $40000天價差超過50,000名付費用戶為0.80美元/天或24美元/月的排名跟踪如果每個人都加盟......和很多沒有必要。

    費用估計可能是基於現有用途/用戶,所以它不會明顯下降,除非用戶主動退學。

    即使如此,成本不會下降親按比例與用法下降。

    如果一半的付費用戶負責大部分的排名跟踪使用情況,並願意支付運費... 50美元/月的費用看起來更容易。

  66. 很好看的一切再次合作。 保持良好的工作傢伙。 我一直在MS的巨大的風扇在過去的2年半,這是真正的鋒線誠實,增加了什麼你們在做什麼。

  68. 看來我將不得不改變你的產品。 一直在使用搜索引擎優化的PowerSuite無法工作,除非你開始支付訂閱6個月後...購買初始費用也不便宜!

  69. 如果你是收取月租費排名跟踪,我想你應該考慮提供一個更好的水平,歷史跟踪像其他支付辦法有一個圖表的形式,否則每月支出很可能在別處定向到做產品有此需要的功能。

    我是一個比較新的客戶,並確實認為你的產品是偉大的,但肯定是有限的相對於其他的替代品,需要月租費 - 特別是在排名跟踪和報告領域。 所以,我非常希望看到在這些領域的進一步發展,如果我是付月租費......這只是抬起頭實在不是一個批判的是,到目前為止,我真的很喜歡這個應用程序,但它只是普通的商業意義,如果你要在一個月,你會親的和反對的替代方案的承諾之前,重達服務消費一定金額。

    We really need a search depth of 1000 again, but I have noticed this is not possible (for obvious reasons). But what if one was to use many private proxies?

  81. why don't you stop the free versions and continue giving good quality to paid users. The product is a big name and dont need any introductions. Who so ever has used free version, will be happy enough to buy the paid version.

  82. Hello Eugene,

    a few weeks ago, MS, offered a video to watch how to get many many backlinks in just a few minutes a day.

    below the correct version.

    unfortunately i was no longer running when i tried to watch it. i got the message that within a few weeks it would be offered again.

    can you tell me where i can watch it.

    perhaps send a link?

    謝謝,

  83. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your communication and transparency on all the issues you have faced. It is refreshing.

    Although I am a paid user of the product, I do not have the need for the product all the time. Still, depending on your monthly charge, I will probably upgrade to that – just to support you. You are a great bunch of guys and I wish you the best.

    謝謝,

    Matt

  84. 嗨,
    I totally Understand the situation and Kudos to you and your team for providing a Part solution within 4 days. (Competitor had however fixed a hiatus of six months time for you).
    Really great for the effort!
    Hope to see the monthly subs on reasonable roll.

  85. What a wonderful news! I feel naked anytime I could not use certain modules in MS.

    Yes, I got an email from one of your competitors(I used their free trial and dumped it later) claiming that they are not affected that Market Samurai is up to something and I should get their services instead.

    Now most of the modules I constantly use are back. Normally I use keyword generation, SEO competition and article generation mostly. Other modules come in handy from time to time.

    Congrats for bringing back MS. Be encouraged and don't let your competitors edge you out.

    All the best.

  86. Hi Eugene,

    Sound to me like some of the free loaders need to step up and be real clients! Your software rocks!!

    Yes, I'd pay monthly for it. You didn't ask, but I thought I tell ya.

    Well said Rodney!

  87. Thanks for the information, I was very preocupated about how was working the rank tracker this last days. Today, you said that I was fixed already, but I still have problems. The first project I tracked, perfect, but the second and the third return me no results, and with this I mean that all the tracking information til now disappeared. ¿This is normal or it's only happening to me?

  88. Great updates, thank you very much.

    With regards to the rank tracking module, can you please make it so people that don't choose to subscribe still can use the rank tracker module locally, I have under 10 sites to track ranks for, and only a couple keywords for each, so I wouldn't have any problems running it locally, and it wouldn't make sense for me to subscribe.

    If that's not possible I don't hope it would cost more than $5 to $10 for the sub, or maybe you could have different sized packages.

    Thank again.

  89. Hmmm, think post title is misleading to say the least. The only thing worth using in MS is Rank Tracker and it's now dead. Can anyone tell me what the alternative softwares that still work are?

  90. Congratulations on bringing back Market Samurai so quickly and apparently with being able to bring back most of the Google interactions.

  91. Fast comeback of Market Samurai functions is welcomed with a big smile!! :) I missed monetization feature the most.

  92. Eugene,
    Like many others, I also think that THE MOST IMPORTANT feature of Market Samurai is the rank tracker.
    However, the rank tracker is not really functioning when you want to use it with many domains and many keywords because Google don't let a single IP have a massive amount of queries in a short time.
    The built in proxies that the rank tracker is working with is one of the most essential features of Market Samurai, maybe even the most important.
    When do you expect this feature to be back to Market Samurai?
    Is there any way for me to import an array of proxies manually with Market Samurai?
    Kindly,
    ANSWER THIS QUESTION FOR ME!
    謝謝,

    Miriam Parkinson replied:

    Hi Dana. Yes, you can do this in Market Samurai via file->settings->proxies

    Its such an invaluable tool, and by fixing the seo section
    means i can get back on track. Its such a great tool thanks so much..

  95. You have found favor in my eyes Market Samurai

  96. 謝謝你的更新。 I must admit that for a while I lost my hope for the software but it seems that you are doing great job restoring its functionality. Thank you for that!

  97. I recommend the rank tracker search depth be quite limited and that users remember that using automated software to search is against Google's policy. User analysis can connect IP's, search patterns and websites. I would hate to have my site banned based on automated search patterns from my IP.
    I have learned of the MS ethics and wish they had the 400,000 paying a subscription fee. I could only imagine what kind of product we could have if they had that kind of income flowing in. Although… Is there anything really lacking? It seems that MS is too concerned about keeping our costs too low. I am hopeful that subscription based modules do pay MS well above their maintenance costs.
    Maybe this change will help break us from our rank tracking addictions so we can focus on the other modules that really matter.

    Jimmy Tango replied:

    I must say this is a compelling comment. If MS were to start an overall subscription/membership model, think of the type of development advances MS could have. Even at just a small $47/month is $18.8mil per month. From a development standpoint this puts your monthly costs for partnering with other companies for the Google Data and development capabilities on a much favorable position. Even $37/month could work, heck even $1/month puts you at an increase in cash flow, in addition to sale of the product, (retail price + continuity)= monthly cash flow.

    The other question is, can MS continue to provide the level of service the MS community has come accustomed to without charging a monthly fee? Accounting for Speed, quality of data, and reliability of data.

    Love to hear feedback from the community.

    Jimmy Tango

  98. Thanks for getting so much functionality back so quickly. Looking forward to a long association with you guys. Keep up the outstanding support and development – definitely will take up a subscription for reliable ranking services if required.

  99. You guys are absolutely amazing and talented programmers and businesspeople!

    I seriously thought MS was “dead” to me for many weeks or maybe months to come. Once again, you've worked miracles. Many, many kudos to you for this latest feat of legerdemain, and so many prior ones…

    While there are undoubtedly going to be grumblers about any monthly fee (me among them), we are all at the mercy of the mighty Google. When it changes the game, we all must either adapt or perish. Noble Samurai could not know what the future holds any more than the rest of us.

    As a paid-in-full and very happy MS customer of several years now, I have been absolutely thrilled with the quality of your product, your obvious dedicated and passion and the tireless way you have all gone about making your product *the* market leader (at least as far as I'm concerned).

    The fact is, other keyword tools will be similarly effected. If we have to start paying, it's the way it goes.

    To all the unhappy campers out there, I say that I would rather pay what I hope will be a reasonable monthly fee and *have* MS than not have it at all! Frankly, I'm surprised that the MS team have been able to provide such an excellent product and support for so long *without* implementing such.

    I would be remiss in pointing out that most other “serious” and professional keyword tools have long since been on the monthly payment model — some to the tune of hundreds of dollars a month! We've all been spoiled by the fact that Noble Samurai has taken it on the chin for a long time for all of us!

    I cannot say this about too many companies, but… I trust the “MS boys” to make a smart business decision! In fact, one which will best serve both the company and the MS community.

    Keep up the great work, guys!
    :-D

  100. Congratulations and thank you for your honesty and your clear communications. The positive response you've received demonstrates that customers respond well when you trust them.

    Thank you for showing how a problem should be addressed. Maybe a couple of governments could learn something from you?

  101. Happy to read that, keep up the good work. I'm a relatively new customer but still fully likes your product.

    As you haven't answered my last post, will you continue to support Linux and Mac OS, even if you get to part with Adobe Air ?

    I'm ok to pay for the Rank Tracker module on a mounthly basis, but dropping support for your non Windows-users-customers would be a bad move in my opinion.

    I hope I'm just being paranoid on that one!

    On
    Miriam Parkinson replied:

    Hi Alex, currently Market Samurai is built on Adobe AIR so we don't have 100% control on what platforms are supported. Unfortunately AIR stopped supporting Linux and versions of Mac OS before snow leopard so those are already not supported. Rest assured though – we are all Mac users at Noble Samurai, Eugene refuses to use anything else! So, if we move away from Adobe AIR we will never be moving to a platform that will not support our non-Windows users.

  102. For those like me, has article marketing, rank tracker will be included in the monthly fee?

  103. Hello Eugene,

    Thanks for the update. I can also confirm as I'm sure you're aware that the SEO PoweSuite guys were trying to use this as a selling point for their software. Now while I did buy a full enterprise edition of their software a long time ago (at over $400) and it was very good, it was full of features that would be used by professional SEO companies but many people would find a bit overwhelming. Still I found using both that and Samurai worked for me.
    However the thing they failed to point out in their email was that they changed to a monthly charging system for updates a long time ago (after I had purchased) so they are on dodgy ground trying to compare their product with Samurai.
    I have also used Market Samurai far more as it is so easy to use. I still like both products but for value for money Market Samurai wins hands down.

    SEOC now being pulled from Bing on the Keyword Research page. Are the numbers in the Searches column being pulled from Bing too? If not, it wouldn't make much sense with Google Searches column data next to a Bing SEOC column data.

    I submitted a support ticket for this and never received an answer. I'm also surprises no one else asked this question.

    Miriam Parkinson replied:

    你好約翰,

    The numbers don't need to come from the same place. 'Searches' is a measure of how many people search that keyword in Google. SEOC is a measure of how many competitors there are on the internet, not just on Google. While the SEOC number taken from Bing and from Google are not going to be identical, they are going to be directly proportional to each other – so a keyword with high competition numbers on Google will also have high competition numbers on Bing.

    Remember, SEOC is only used to rule out the high competition keywords, you then need to look at the SEO Competition matrix of the keywords that are left to check their strength of competition – this module will still show you the top 10 results in Google as this is the primary search engine that we, and our customers in general are optimizing for.

  105. Thank you for keeping us so fully informed. Good luck with all your efforts.

  106. Ladies and Gentlemen! After a little break… The show goes on! Not user yet? Please, take your ticket, the future of the best SEO tool, I called Market Samurai, is thrilling!

  107. Thank you, I appreciate the hard work you guys have put in.

  108. 108

    Thanks for the update:
    Just a couple of comments:
    1. When looking at SEOC, I would prefer to know how many pages ranked by google use these keywords, since google is still the place to be for traffic (maybe I'm not understanding what SEOC is, but the way i understand it is that the higher the value, the higher the competition and i don't really care that much about how many bing ranked sites use the kw, but I do care very much how many google ranked sites use it).
    2. can you enable the local network rank tracker long term as an option? I don't have any issues with network bandwidth so that might be a great option for smaller opertators

  109. I realize that I have not utilized the program to its fullest capability as I typically use only certain pieces of it. However IF you are already working on it could you please accept a suggestion of something that I would find beneficial?

    A way to know what the top 5 or 10 questions are on a keyphrase submitted to the SEs? Saw this available in another product and think it would be helpful.

  110. 110

    I have two paid licenses for MS, one of which I won way back when, but have never considered refunding the other one because it is just such a great product!

    For those of us with many site / keywords to track a paid module certainly makes sense (are we not making something off all those pages?) however I hope you can keep the option in place that you just created, to do limited numbers of searches from the local machine (limited by Google rather than MS) – that will work for many of the less active customers.

    Thanks again for such a high quality, well maintained product.

  121. Thanks for working quickly and effectively. MS is a great tool and I think adding optional subscription modules might be a viable business model for NS, so you do not have to rely on sales alone.

    I appreciate very much all that I got for the one time fee I paid long ago – there were so many updates and upgrades – Exceptional. Many others would certainly have issued some paid upgrades during this time!!

    So, again, THANKS and I hope you find a really good way to carry on.

  122. Thanks for bringing back such a useful tool. Some things that i use it for is the rank checker. No problem separating from whole package.

  123. I am one of the “Little” guys. I do not mind using MS from my machine and do not use MS the same way the “Big Dogs” do.

    Even at that, I would gladly pay a couple of bucks a month (or $25 a year) to be sure you stay around.

    What you might do though, because, as you said, (and it's beyond the technical capacity of the average user) you might send instructions on how to do that set up.

    One hell of a job in a very short time span!!

  126. Just curious: I got the most recent update and there was some type of addition a-something, but I hit the button too fast and don't know what was added. Can someone explain what it was?

    Thanks guy,

  130. Hi guys thanks for the update. I too wondered what I'd done before Market Samuri!
    Hopefully you get Rank Tracker up & running again soon….as for those charges….are you going to scale them by use ie 15 keywords or less = band a) 30 keywords or less = band b) and so on…?
    Anyway – great work guys!

  131. I am fine with having to pay for the Ranking module separately. Not really a big deal there, so long as this feature is also kept inside of Market Samurai for smaller queries of 10 or so keywords.

    I tend to use Market Samurai purely for keyword research anyways, so this isn't something which inhibits my business. I already use a monthly subscription based tool for rank checking anyways. If you guys are going to put out a tool that can compete with something like Web CEO for rank tracking though, then.. I may just need to cancel my subscription with them and move to yours!

    Cheers, and keep up the great work!

  132. Can you guys set the record straight on the mixed message coming from the SEO PowerSuite camp?

    …”So let us once again disprove the rumor: Google made no changes and nothing happened to it at all. More to that, whenever changes to Google happen in the future, SEO PoweSuite will keep working seamlessly…”

  133. Market Samurai needs to go SOCIAL ! I love market samurai, but as I said in a comment on Smart Passive Income blog, “SEO as we know it” is going to die. Here's the quote, I believe it's one of better comments I've left, so I have to repost it here:

    “A lot of important information in a single post. Market Samurai was indeed a worthy service, and I believe that they will continiue to be so.

    I am not sure that Market Samurai will survive for long with the upcoming Google changes. And I don't refer to the current changes, but I am thinking ahead and about the changes that are about to come.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not a prophet and I don't have visions, but in late 2011 and now 2012 Google is becoming ever more social. That's why I am wondering why you Pat don't have “+1″ in your Sharebar.

    Google Plus will integrate completely into the search, making Google one of the most profound Search Social Networks. If you are Apple user, you know how well Apple products integrate well into each other, Google figured out that this trend works well.

    Imagine how Smartphones “killed” the need for cameras, because Camera became a feature of a Smartphone, leading it to a better product. Also Smartphones have a potential to kill Audio Players, because Audio Players are “feature” of Smartphone.

    Now transition this to Google World. Google Plus is a feature of SEARCH. Google Reader is integral part of your search experience! Picasa is integral part of your SEARCH. Result for 100 million Google Plus users (and will grow on daily basis), will actually recieve completely different search results than all other users who aren't under Google Experience Umbrella.

    The explosive growth of Google Plus is frightening, and will render Googles tools, like KeyWord Tool, completely obsolete as the time passes by. This will make Market Samurai viable tool for next period, maybe up to two years, but after that, too many results will be “socially enhanced”.

    Google knows that the money lies in “social graph” and unlike Facebook, they will be the first to figure out how to monetize that data. This is my bet.

    I love Market Samurai, but as the time passes by, I feel and see that “SEO as we know it” is going to die.”

    Link to the whole post is here: http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/is-this-the-end-of-the-market-samurai-dynasty-direct-answers-from-the-ceo/

    I can't wait to see future upgrades of Market Samurai, as I still intend to recommend it to my friends and clients. You gave a rocking year, and thanks to your video tutorials I've learned a lot about SEO and saved hours upon hours of learning and cramming.

    You've left immense impact on my online marketing knowledge, I want to thank you once again for that.

  134. Hats off to Market Samurai … Again!

    One may suppose in limiting free queries, Google itself is responding to certain kinds of heavy free use of its servers, perhaps (for all I know) a discovery its decision-makers made as Google looks more closely at dividing the virtual search world by locally-relevant criteria … in which milieu search volume per locale is typically rather less than the global sum.

    Market Samurai has developed a reputation for keeping abreast of changes in an ever-changing environment, yet at low cost to its customers. Thank you again, this time especially for your recent Herculean efforts.

    “Free” rank tracking (not that it was ever entirely free to everybody) will be missed, but there seems little point in fighting against gravity here.

  135. Thank you Eugene for placing us all with the full up todate knowledge of whats happening and what is going on with our MS tool. It only stands to reason that woith such a great tool as Market Samurai that it would not be just dropped with so many users of the software.

  136. Thanks so much for all you've done. I'm an occasional user, very happy with the service and how hard you work to keep things running smoothly when bumps come along the way.

  137. I just purchased MS (yeah me)! I actually was doing the trial during your outages but thought those to be a temporary issue. Regardless, I still think it's a viable product at the cost.

    My question though: I have been involved with brokering large amounts of data and know that once you buy data it quickly becomes dated (pardon the pun). What will the schedule for updates be to your data base? Weekly, Monthly?

    How is this different from SEOMoz or any other rank reporting tool? You might not be able to answer that but I'm curious if pulling from a ranking database is how it's done or is it more real time.

    I wish you all the best with your dilemma. Sounds like you are handling the best way posible.

    克里斯

  138. Excellent news. 多謝。

  139. Just a short note to commend the Market Samurai team for keeping us in the loop and working as hard as they do to solve problems. Dealing with all the Google changes must be challenging and frustrating.

    Given all the updates they do to the core application (updates that have great documentation), I think the company is well within their rights to charge a monthly fee for rank tracking. Sites like SEOmoz do. I hope it's not too much and as a previous poster set, is tiered so that those who use more, pay more.

  140. Thank you so much for all the hard work guys. I assume everything is alright with Article Samurai as I use it for my clients in local online advertising.

  141. Stop worrying about the cheap users. It's understandable that they're going to be the loudest when you ask them to pay for something, but you can't please everyone all the time no matter what you do.

    Charge for the whole package. If you've got 400,000 users, charge each one $5 a month. That's enough to cover your costs? (400,000 x $5 = $2,000,000 per month or $66,667 per day) That'll cover your data buying costs and leave you profits too which you guys deserve.

    If someone can't afford $5 per month then they're lying.
    :)

  142. Will Market Samurai become a monthly subscription product?

    I have come to depend on Market Samurai for my Keyword projects so my concern is not that you may ask for an annual or monthly payment, rather that you remain successful enough to fund your excellent maintenance program and improvements.

    All of us long-term customers are being kept going by your ability to recruit a steady stream of new recruits paying for a license. There are a finite limit to the SEO SEM market and when recruitment starts to tail off I will be happy to pay an additional basic license fee and so should anyone else who uses Market Samurai as a business tool.

  143. Glad to see you guys got it all worked and and thanks for all your support

  144. Glad all is working.

    It is very typical for business software to be a one time purchase price and 10% annual software maintenance in order to be provided with updates, not upgrades (ie. 3.xxx to 3.zzz, not 3.x to 4.x). I'm very new to this product, but it is apparent to me it needs to be constantly updated and worked on in order to continue to function in the very fluid environment it works in. I'd be perfectly willing to pay maintenance on it. You can't be paid one time and work forever for nothing more. That is not sustainable.

  146. So glad you are in recovery mode! So many of our sites got hit hard when Google changed their algorithesms back in October of last year.

    Great Stuff…!! I am quite confident that whatever fee structure you develop will be fair and equitable, the important thing being that you can operate with some incentive to continue offering your service.

    Business is always facing challenges ans we are in business to overcome challenges.

    I suggest you are doing a great job in dealing with this one.

  148. Congratulations to all. I knew that you could with this problem. It was only a matter of time. Market Samurai is by far the best tool on the market. I love this tool. 再次感謝您。

  149. Thanks for the updates. It's quite amazing what you've delivered with no charge for upgrades — Market Samurai is worth every penny, and I'm sure the new rank tracking service will be the same. Thank you for the excellent product and for keeping us all informed along the way.

    Market Samarai hardly worked during my trial period a few months ago. How about a trial since its working now?

  151. I'll gladly pay for a paid subscription for a good solid rank tracking service, it's very important to me and my team.

  152. This is Great news that you were able to bring back Market Samurai so quickly and with most of the Google functions still working, I'm glade to work with a company that can bounce back so well, after taking a hit like this from a large player like Google.

    Keep up the Great work!

  153. Thanks guys, you're efforts are greatly appreciated. I've been here almost since the beginning and have lived through all of the assorted growth spurts and problems. MS has been invaluable to me and my keyword research.

    Seems to me that way back in the beginning rank tracker was much as it is now. Run to many checks and get cut off by google for a few hours. It worked then and it works now. However you created a position junky when I could do unlimited keyword rank checking.

    Funny tho, it didn't add much to the bottom line as there was no focus. Lol, runem all and see what's working. While I don't think going back to the beginning is a great thing it will, at least, make me focus on the keywords making the best money and not all of the keywords just out of curiosity. After a few weeks you mostly know whether a kw is a winner or loser. No sense to continue checking the losers.

    A big list of great proxies would be appreciated tho. Assuming the proxy part still works the way it used to. ;)

    Make a list of proxies public and see how long they remain “great”? You need to source your own, the moment a proxy becomes too well known if becomes a waste of time.

    Cynical One replied:

    Actually, MS still says it has proxy servers. If you check settings under proxies there is a check box that says “Use built in proxy servers” but I'm wondering if these even still exist in MS.

    If not a list of proxies would still be a good thing. The guys at MS have much more knowledge of proxies than I do. All of them I find are slower than hell so a list of the better ones provided ny MS would be a great help.

    BTW, everything free on the net decreases in value with over usage.

    Paul B replied:

    The point I'm trying to make (all be it not very well) is that they wouldn't be supplying YOU with a list of proxies, they'd be supplying their 400,000 users. Unless that is a very very big list then whatever they include will soon become as you put it, slower than hell or worse.

    Find your own under utilised ones and you can get away with half a dozen at most. Alternatively there are paid proxy services out there, I've been using one and rank tracker is running fine.

  154. Thanks for the hard work, I know how intricate and stress software development is let alone how frustrating it is when an external source such as Google makes changes that you have no control over. The fact the you let us know right away what was wrong fixed and communicated so quickly and thoroughly continue to make me a big fan of Market Samurai!

  155. I know so many companies that wold have run at the first sign of trouble. You guys are a class act, and for a one-time payment kind of deal this is more than a bargain; it's almost steal :D.

    But seriously, if we look at this objectively, the only thing we're (partially) missing is the Rank Tracker. Overall this is the best SEO-Keyword research-…etc, combo that exists nowadays.

    Keep up the great work and you deserve way more than you ask (at least I made “way more” than what I paid for your service ;)).

  156. 156

    Again, top level approach to the challenges.
    謝謝。

  157. Well done Eugene and team.
    I am amazed you have things up and running so fast.
    MS is an excellent product and I am quite happy to pay a (reasonable!) fee for the rank checker.
    It is good to know I am working with professionals.
    一切順利

    I agree that the Market samurai was the best internet marketing tool, thanks for that. What i totally disagree is that the mixing of google-bing information is giving accurate and even decent results as i have notify to the staff showing several comparisons to the seoc data provided by MS and those found in the actual bing search and allow me to say that is totally messed up!.

    Like some one said before is very hard to compare the size of the indexed pages that google has with those of bing-yahoo.

    Im very aware of your efforts to overpass this big issue but is not transparent to make us believe that you have made the best decisions by combining the two data sources to offer anything similar that MS was delivering before.

    And sure thing is that the most of the MS users have this specific matter in mind, as many of them are asking, will the seoc, the title and the url number of indexed pages going back with the google data? if the answer is no, you guys as savvy as you are, by now just throw over a good piece of software.

    As far we as users we are doomed to walk blind, trusting on what you say, or to find a way to invest on decent and reliable data like this market more than many other requires.

  159. Thanks Market Samurai…

    For communicating so clearly and quickly with all of us.

    It's refreshing to see. Not many companies care as amuch as you folks seem to. It is appreciated!!

  160. While, at times, I've been frustrated w/ NS, the decision to offer rank tracking as an up-charge, monthly fee module within the MS software, while continuing to extend the basic service w/o additional charge, is a high integrity move by your team.

    Reality is that MS is a terrific tool for the money. Thanks for the continued effort in keeping the software effective, and affordable, as the environment of the web evolves.

  161. Amazing work as well as communication and transparency. The way you've handled this entire event should be the “counterpoint” to the big companies out there who cover stuff up, then lie, then finally admit the truth, then scramble with bad communication, then get defensive, etc.!

    I was already a loyal (paid) customer, and this clinches it.

    I absolutely hate paying a monthly fee for software, but yours is one of the few that we'd do that for – it's that good and saves that much time.

    So yes, it is great that your software was a one-time cost. But to agree with a couple people above, with all the work necessary to keep things working, not to mention adding features, a maintenance charge would be completely understandable.

    I have to spend $50 or so every couple years for new versions of Quicken financial software. I view them as a necessary evil, and don't love them as a company, but still do it otherwise they simply don't support any of the online features. Although I moan about it, I do understand that they do a bunch of development to stay current and it's only fair to do it that way.

    They don't even try to hide it as maintenance – they just say “buy now, you have until April xx until your software will no longer work.”

    We pay $5 or $6 per month for a program in this space that does one thing that MS does. They hid that in fine print when we bought – I thought maintenance was only to get new features, and I figured we would decide if we needed them or not at that time. But after their initial period, I discovered that the maintenance was necessary or it simply would not work any more.

    I don't like the way they handled it, but we are paying their fee.

    Would I pay $5 per month for MS, with 10x more functionality, integrity like you have shown from the beginning, new features, great training, and a great community?

    Ummm, yes, I think so!

    嗨!

    I've been using Market Samurai for some time now and all I have to say is that I can't “live” with it!

    I'm happy to see that almost all issues were solved.

    I have a question regarding SEOC.

    I was using this metric to filter keywords that have less than 30.000 competing sites in google…

    I have no problem in using numbers from Bing but the problem is that there a significant difference in numbers… I'll give you an example for one keyword in my niche:

    “online relationship counselling”

    SEOC in Google is 63400 (for english language and for the US)

    SEOC with BING is 541…

    The question is: Is there a maximum number for BING SEOC that we can use a reference?

    I understand your reasons for adding the fees for the rank tracking service, and I'm more than willing to pay for this service, however it raises a few concerns.

    None of the other (one time fee) keyword research tools have rank checking built in, so that fact gave Market Samurai a clear advantage over its competition.

    There's the free rank checker plugin in Firefox, but it doesn't keep a history, and it doesn't have the nice charts. So Market Samurai's rank tracker was better than the free stuff out there.

    However, as a paid monthly service, you introduce a whole different class of competition and a whole different class of features.

    Most paid services are fully automated.

    The rank tracking module requires zero brainpower to run, but it does require us to open the software daily, click the button and wait quite a whole.

    This is a significant disadvantage when comparing yourself to your new competition(monthly paid rank tracking services).

    Some services will show more information about your keywords and point out opportunities. For example, oftentimes there are keywords that you already rank on page 2 for that have quite a bit of traffic. Other paid services will show the traffic stats right next to your rankings, so you can very easily pick out the big opportunities.

    There's a host of other features that many of the paid rank tracking services offer.

    So although I understand your need to change your fee structure as a self preservation measure, and I have no problem paying a monthly fee, I hope you realize that as a paid service, you're being held up to a completely different class of standards.

    Please make your new paid rank tracking service competitive with other paid ranking services, not just in pricing, but also in features and convenience.

    Don't forget you have a new class of competition now.

    Thanks for the thoroughness Rob, yes I for one would pay a mothly fee but if funtionality, useability, better metrics are found elsewhere then loyalty or not doesn't feed my kids.

    Anyway Thanks again

    side note
    Seems to be low responses from the MS team considering this is a major issue?

  165. This should help Market Samurai users' spirits up… something that's really needed especially after reading that very discouraging email from Link Assistant. :|

  167. Eugene,

    Thanks for such an informative report. I wish you guys all the best in moving forward.

    You are the most un-greedy people in the space. The fact that you give access to such an amazing tool for no subscription fee is just unheard of.

    I can just imagine what hell you have been through in the past week. It is very impressive how fast you have bounced back. You all should be very proud of yourselfs.

  168. 168

    Why don't you offer a Rank Tracker version that works like SERPAlertPro? You can learn about this by searching for it by name at the Warrior Forum. It is software that works in the background on your own machine and provides analysis, etc. It is a one off payment. I think it is a good idea and will work fine for non-power users. For those people, proxies would be needed. I would rather buy such a product from you because, with your resources, you could create a better product and support it better. As I said, this could be just a version of Rank Tracker, ie, you could also have a monthly subscription for those that need more power, added convenience, etc.

  169. Looks good guys. One comment I do have (if I read it right) – you have 400,000 users and only 50,000 of them paying customers?

    There seems to be an opportunity there for scaled fees, ie $ = very basic functionality and $$$ = full functionality. Sure there are benefits to a time limited trial but maybe a range of MS options/packages might help ease the burden and still keep the majority happy?

    I do agree that other SEO software that uses the local PC internet connection results in serious bandwidth degradation – and not just to Google. After using other packages I always have a much slower connection to websites for the next few hours. This is not good as it implies that my ISP “must know” that I am carrying out a lot of automated searches.

    Your approach wins through for me.

  170. Thanks for the detailed update!

    I just used Market Samurai again last night after downloading the latest version. So far, everything seems to be working fine. I love the fact that you all are so committed to this excellent software, and that you've already done so much to ensure that we can continually use it, even in the face of Google's changes.

    Thanks for making things clear about Bing's database also. All in all, I'm still impressed with Market Samurai, and how the software team has handled and is continuing to handle this problem. 謝謝。

  171. Thanks for the updates Eugene, I look forward to seeing whats is going to happen with regards to rank tracking the other changes are all positive and Market Samuria is still the best value for money there is!

  172. It looks like my previous comment didn't post. Not sure why.

    Anyways, just wanted to say that I really appreciate what you all are doing. Market Samurai is excellent software, and continues to impress. I love how dedicated the software team is to resolving these issues, and I think they've done an excellent job in the face of what's happened.

    I'm continually impressed. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication, so that we can all benefit from using Market Samurai!

    嗨,大家好
    Have you seen these allegations by CEO from SEO Powersuite:

    We're getting 100s of worried requests from users so we decided to explain this web rumor.

    Rumors of a drastic Google algo change started spreading after another SEO software house officially announced their software stopped working with Google. What Market Samurai told its users is, “Several days ago, Google made some significant technical changes to its services” which made it impossible to work with.

    Now hundreds of ex-customers of Market Samurai and our own users write to our support: Is SEO PowerSuite working? Is it safe to buy SEO PowerSuite license now when other tools are failing to work?

    The answer is YES, your software is working and will work with all search engines (Google as well, until the end of Google.) We are able to guarantee that SEO PowerSuite is the safest SEO software to invest in.

    So – right, SEO PowerSuite keeps working. The thing is, what is proclaimed a Google's technical change doesn't look so and has never been confirmed by anyone outside Market Samurai team. Our team of search engines experts confirms no changes to Google algos – and the speaking evidence for that is the seamlessly working SEO PowerSuite.

    No other reasons for Market Samurai's software failure have ever been officially named. However, more realistic reasons were suggested by their former users, assumed by many SEOs on all kind of Internet forums – and never commented on by the Samurai representatives. So the actual reasons for the fail are assumable and lie in a strategic error at the early stage of designing the software architecture. Our experts say, the estimate of fixing such error to restore an SEO tool to a fully working condition is about half a year.

    Seeing that now Samurai is planning to switch to Bing instead of Google, we assume the estimate is right.

    So let us once again disprove the rumor: Google made no changes and nothing happened to it at all. More to that, whenever changes to Google happen in the future, SEO PoweSuite will keep working seamlessly.

    As many know, for 7 years on the market Link-Assistant.Com software has been working reliably. And we can guarantee reliable work of all SEO PowerSuite tools in future, with a team of engineers and analysts monitoring search engines every day.

    謝謝

    Hi Theo, we published a response to this on the SEO Powersuite blog and it is also addressed in the comment section of our other blog post.
    http://www.noblesamurai.com/blog/market-samurai/update-the-state-of-the-market-samurai-nation-2875/

  174. Thank you for the great update and following up on the problems with Market Samurai. There are a lot of vendors out there that do not understand the concept of customer service. You obviously do and you continue to prove that over and over again.

  175. 175

    I'm personally very glad that the Market Samurai team has everything under control. This is still my Go-To tool for initial market and keyword analysis, and I don't see that changing until they begin charging for modules that were included in the original purchase.

    You see… there is an issue of a contract made upon purchase of the product (I'm glad I took screenshots) and the promises made constitute a contract. Changing that agreement now could be interpreted as a breach of that contract.

    I completely understand that you're experiencing costs greater than you anticipated in the beginning. That's the nature of business (not just Internet Marketing, all business). I'm sure that many here will also agree that we shouldn't be penalized for late in the game updates due to necessary modifications and adjustments to your sources of information.

    I say… live up to your agreements that are already in place, and make the necessary adjustment to your pricing for all new purchasers. If that means that there is a monthly subscription for All New Purchasers, then so be it.

    That is really the only fair approach, considering that those of us that purchased early on had to pay for the privilege of being “Beta Testers” for all this time.

    Sorry Guys, but it's not right to penalize the very people that helped get you where you are today. Make the necessary adjustment to your pricing structure applicable to those that are purchasing your product from this point on.

  176. 176

    The best thing to do it would seem, is to leave rank checking on the local machine for those who want to take the responsibility and offer a separate high-volume service on a monthly fee for those who need or want it. Failing that, offer a “lite” rank tracker for free and a “pro” heavy-use version for a monthly fee. It is apparent that a relatively few very high-volume users are causing the problem and it hardly seems right to penalize the rest of us.

  177. 177

    Why not make the rank tracker wholly based on customer's networks with the ability to enter private or public proxy IPs and ports? This seems the most cost-effective and efficient solution for everyone.

    Kim@beginners guitar lessons replied:

    I agree, I don't use it for more than 6 sites so I could easily run it on my own network.

  178. 178

    Can I use Rank Tracker on my local network?
    As indicated above, Rank Tracker has been temporarily updated to make use of your local computer and we'll soon be offering a revised service that again pulls data from our servers. Checking a moderate to high volume of keywords from your local computer can result in a temporarily degraded Google service for all those on the same network as you. In corporate environment this should generally be avoided.

    I might sound rough, but that doesn't really answer the question, which is: Can I use Rank Tracker on my local network? … so a Yes or a No would really be an answer. Ok at the moment works locally, but will we have the option to “take our own risk” and check data locally? (hello proxy!)

  179. Good job in keeping up updated. One of the things that had frustrated our team was the manual clicks required of the SEOC, SEOTC, SEOUC numbers.
    The automatic display will be a great time saver.
    By the way, as a frequent user and very appreciative of the frequent updates, we would not mind going to an annual subscription model (ideally less than $100) in order to keep the quality up.
    Best Luck

  180. Kudos to MS team for bringing back Market Samurai so quickly

  181. I personally want to say a BIG THANK YOU for your support and for the quick turnaround you guys have done for a small organization.

    Can't believe how quick you have managed to get this fully working again with most modules.

    From my initial investment of Market Samurai I have saved thousands of hours, and a shit load of money to.

    I would be more than happy if you were to offer this as a monthly service because of this powerful Resource.

    With all the changes that Google has made in the last 12 months etc… you should not be apologising to us, WE should be thank full for having a trusted honest team that is here to provide the best training, advice, and tools to grow our business further and for that THANK YOU

    你們是真棒。 I now just need to learn how to harness MS's power!!!

  184. This is complete hogwash in my opinion. Many other, similar, program continue to work fine, particularly with their Rank Trackers. It seems to me to be some short-sided coding at play here.

    And as a further insult, we need to rely on Bing data in certain cases? Google is where it's at. I could care less what Bing has to tell me.

  185. Honesty is the cornerstone of every business, so thanks for sharing all information with us so openly…

  186. You might want to look at the speed controls that some other stand alone rank tracking software use and do something like what they do (search delays, etc.). It does slow down the rank tracking, but it keeps you from putting a heavy load on Google's server and also from having your computer temporarily banned from using Google services.

  187. I must say you're great guys. I used MS for more than 2 years before I purchase it (I mostly use keyword research). I purchased another tools, but I didn't find good and reliable as MS. With this last update, I was worry you become late in resolving the issue, But it's no wonder you're so fast in fixing that issue.

    非常感謝。

  188. I'd like to make a recommendation for the rank tracker module. Since right now, it is using the local PC to perform the searches, can you enable some form of human emulation (configurable delay) so that it doesn't blast all the searches at Google as fast as it can? This will minimize the impact to other users of Google search on the same network. 偉大的產品。 It's a shame about the negative impact of Google's changes.
    謝謝。

  189. Great to have MS back and functioning more on automatic again.

    As for recent google changes im sure its a part of their continueing evil deception tactics to not let anyone that isnt paying their adwords side of the buisines, have any real data. Google for the past year has moved to be move of ANTI website owner search engine then ever before, and worse if your an affiliate or trying to earn online. Google has made it their prime directive to screw everyone from making money off their engine, except themselves.

    I mean they even stole the “like” feature from Facebook and forced users now to use the google plus 1 feature.

    Google in my opinion will continue to kill any opportunity for making money that includes taking keyword and ranking data till the DOJ steps in but they wont cause their funded by google inc.

    The days of a free internet with the ability to earn from google is over, google will make sure that it will all be gone by the end of this year, and will be even worse if the republicans get into power again as Google Inc is the biggest repulican support this year making them almost untouchable and able to screw with the internet in anyway they want to. And they do to effect constant changes to reduce everyones ability, unless they pay the evil google more ,money.

    I miss the days when Google was for us little guys and on our side, now their in with the elite and hate all of us and will continue to steal profits from the world.

    Good to see use of the Bing API, and BING engine as i believe bing will eventually (because of underhanded google tactics) be the search engine to rank for and get data metrics from that will allow real world analysis.

    Thanks MS for continued advances and continued updates allowing us all to mine the data reasonable well and get back to earning off the internet.

  190. Hey, good to know you're on the game again!
    I'm not so confident about Bing option for Seoc. Bing doesn't have so many pages indexed as Big G to make a good comparison. You kept your clients informed during all the time and that showed how professional and serious you are. Keep on like that!

  193. Will there be options to buy Rank Tracker for each user, as I personally use other software for this purpose and would not use it inside of MS?

  194. I am a little confused here. You state you have 400,000 users but only 50,000 have paid to use the software? Was this a typo?

    If not, it appears a large part of your problem is that you have been too generous. It is all right to have a 30 or even a 90 day free trial period for your software but after that those free users need to pay to use the software.

    If you have been able to do all you have done with just 50,000 paid users while supporting the 350,000 free users, think how much more you could do if you converted the free users to paid users. It appears to be past time to tell the free users to convert to paid users and dumped those who continued to want a free ride from you and your paid users.

    Your operating costs might drop drastically if you eliminated the 88% of your users who are not paying for the software and using your servers.

    Sorry, free users, but at some point it becomes time to pay for the ride or get off and walk.

    I 100% agree with this, I was shocked by those figures. It's no wonder you've upset the Big G if you're running queries for 400,000 users from a cloud infrastructure funded by 50,000!

    Just imagine how much extra infrastructure (IPs at least) you could have had in place if they were all paying customers? Or to look at it the other more realistic way, imagine how much less of a burden you'd be on Google if you were only hitting them for paid users?

    Bin the freeloaders, if people don't buy within say a 60 day free trial then they're never going to. Even if this isn't enough to get things back to where they were then I'd vote for an annual maintenance subscription like others have said. Your software is one of only a couple of tools I trust enough to use on a regular basis, everything about it has been superb to date and I'd hate to see the whole thing wrecked at the expense of a few cheapskates.

    Unfortunately if these numbers are true, it isn't “a few cheapskates”. It appears that 88% of MS users are getting a free ride.

    I was in support of an annual maintenance fee for the software to support development.

    Now I say it is time to purge the user base of whatever portion of the 350,000 free members who refuse to convert to a paid copy before talking about additional fees to those who have paid.

    Then I would again support a small annual fee for maintenance again.

  197. MS is worth the once off fee for the competition analysis alone. It's the simple reality of business that sometimes charges for services rise and I think it's pretty clear here that the Noble Samurai team aren't doing this deliberately.

    Of course, I would rather not pay a monthly fee but the alternative may well be to go to other providers who charge exponentially more.

    You guys are absolutely AWESOME! Thank you for all your hard work to respond to google's change and to do so with such speed and thorough thought.

    You guys set a new benchmark in delivering a quality product and service with the way you handle things and also in the clear, concise and informative method of communication.

    Hope Google doesn't read these posts and take you guys away to work for them!

    Hi, I have suggested this several times before and I dont understand why you guys have never implemented it.

    Adding a server query delay option into the admin settings would allow users to run MS from their local machine without tripping to many queries at once.

    SEO Elite and Keyword Elite have had this for years.

    You can adjust the server delay to suit your needs so the more kwds the longer the delay and it saves your ip getting blocked from Google.

    Given how great MS is Im sure this wouldnt be that big a deal to add in and would save so much hassle for users to stop us getting u=our ip's blocked.

    Hope fully you'll add this, it really would be good.

    Daniel replied:

    嗨,

    我同意。 Just add Advanced configuration dialog for adding some human emulation for google requests – like configurable random delay from 0 to 100 seconds for each request.

    Possibly some more features like visiting home page of google before doing searches, clicking some of the search results …

    Since you have done great job so far, it should be rather easy to add this feature which would enable more reliable rank tracker and other features.

  200. As usual you have provided exceptional customer service and dealt with a massive problem with minimal service interruption. I was wondering how your product as good as it is, was going to stay away from monthly prices knowing full well, Google was eventually going to pull the plug.

    I have made tens of thousands of dollars off of a beta price of 67 when Samurai was released to a select few before it went widespread.

    It continues to be, and is one of the best investments I have ever made, and you guys and your updates are unbelievable on a one time price.

    Hats off to the Samurai team, and I commend you on excellence in what you have done with this product, and the tutuorials made available to its users.

    Its a bit of a downer to pay monthly, but it is what it is, and beyond your control.

    Ok, im testing now the keyword research module and… excuse me about this but Market samurai is now plain crap… why
    the results of the keyword research module are useless, a good word of advice, anyone relying on this data just don't do it, it screw up every single research i was doing.

    You guys better develop the tool again or accept a total fail…

    A suggestion to make the rank tracker still available free. Why don't you consider enabling proxy setting by users option, which pulls the data from proxy IP's instead of local servers ?

    Sorry but using Bing for SEOC, SEOLC etc. just does not wash with me. I have been testing for 2 days now and there is absolutely no correlation (as you say above) between Google and Bing competition and traffic levels, at least not on my local market.

    I may see on a specific phrase 100,000 SEOT (Google) and absolutely no competition (less than 1000) in SEOLC (Bing). When I check the local Google database by doing a simple search in Google for the same phrase it comes up as more than 1,000,000 pages having that keyword in the page. If I had believed the data MS was giving me I would have attacked this keyword. But at over 1 million Google pages this would have been suicide.

    And the argument that Bing has more pages indexed than Google just cannot be true – the data MS is showing me for each and every search term proves this to be completely flawed as an argument.

    Also, you say 30% share for Bing in the US market. Perhaps, but here in France it's less than 8%

    >>> Bing data is completely useless to us if you are using Google for SEOT, and if your local market is dominated by Google, which is the case for me.

    As a paying customer I must really push you (as are several people above) to get Google data back for SEOC and SEOLC, etc.

    Without this data coming from Google – and it pains me to say – I would have to leave MS for good and find another solution.

    Hi MS team

    Could we get an answer from you on this issue?

    For me this is the key : I use MS 90% for keyword analysis and competition study, and 10% to check rankings.

    Moreover, I am finding that the SEOC and SEOLC figures are not working, even for Bing. I can see 10,000 pages in competition for a specific phrase on SEOLC: when I click on the number to get the link over to Bing, Bing is telling me 100,000+ results in its local database.

    So I don't know how I can possibly use this data

  216. Thank you very much for your effort to bring MS up. Kudos to whole team of Market Samurai!

  217. Hi Eugene, Hi Ben,

    Firstly Ben, thanks so much for your personal reply in SuperFast Results. Shows you care!

    The important thing that you guys have pointed out is that SEOC is not an accurate measure of the competition we REALLY face when doing keyword research. These days I just go straight to the SEO Competition module because it's those first ten entries that really count! And you're pulling that data from Google. 偉大的東西。
    These days (as an affiliate) I use the SEO Competition module by only going for keywords that have at least four of the top ten entries easy to beat (pretty green), and if there are too many big players in there like Amazon and Walmart with PR4+ I won't bother.

  218. Great to have MS back online. Surely it has been a good start for the MS team for 2012, but I do see the MS team effort in trying to mitigate all the challenges they face and offer excellent customer service for their products.

    I read that some of your paying customers aren't confident about the data drew from Bing which I must say I agree. Bing although growing in market share, has yet to prove itself being capable of replacing Google. In fact, much of the traffic to my websites and my clients are from Google, not so much from Bing.

  219. This is awesome customer service. I'm very impressed with market samurai and the the level of transparency. I really enjoy the product and appreciate this notification.
    謝謝!

    In SEO competition SITE (Index Count) must be from Google – really. Here in Europe Bing has 3 – 8 % of market….

    Mayby you should stop giving away MS for 40 days for free. 12 days it enought for someone who want buy it.

  221. Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for the excellent work MS has put into getting something up and running again so soon.

    I've been using the limited rank checker for a few days and to be honest I've had totally inconsistent results. For example I'm seeing pages reported as not ranked that are clearly (cache cleared/no history etc) on the first page. I've even checked using proxies and the results are there. Talking of which, I've just signed up to the HMA VPN solution http://bit.ly/A8Ppzx that I'm hoping will give better results. It was worth the $12 or whatever for 1 month just to give it a go. If it works then I can take the burden of you guys full stop.

    I know it might seem slightly out there but would it not be possible to use something similar (3rd paryt) over the existing cloud infrastructure to anonmyise (is that even a word?) your Google traffic or do you still reckon there's just too much throughput?

    Hey guys,

    Long time MS user – I have 3 licenses actually, so… you could say I'm generally a supporter.

    What I want to know is this:

    Many tools offer rank trackers. There's everything from CuteRank to the actual “Rank Tracker” from the guys behind SEO SpyGlass.

    All of these other tools have kept their rank tracker functions working, and there's no discussion amoungst the users about fee structures, etc.

    So what makes MS unique here?

    Why is it that MS is the only software talking about this?

    If this was a “Google” problem, how have all of the other tools overcome it so easily?

    Hell, if Scrapebox can still query Google at 500 threads of inurl: searches behind proxies without being banned, what's the issue?

    I've never seen one explaination that makes any sense about why MS is the only tool with a problem that will begin to require fee's.

    Mind you, it's not about the money… it's about this being an isolated incident that only affects your software, and it's not unreasonable to just ask why…

    I'm sure this will get the crowd looking to hang anyone that says anything out of turn all worked up, but that's their decision. I don't really care about people getting super defensive, so if anyone would like to, be my guest.

    May I suggest that you add a cost ONLY to those who use the service frequently? Maybe above a threshold per day/week/month – surely there's a way to build a monitoring mechanism into the system?

    Been using MS for years and love it. What a great team and great value. Thanks so much for making this tool affordable for the little guy!

  234. I have never posted on this blog before so please do not interpret what I say as trolling to any degree. I will have to agree with just about everyone that says the SEOC must be restored to utilizing Googles Results and not Bing.

    I have been trying your product for the second time now the first time was a couple of months ago and I just could not believe how powerful your software was and how awesome in general it was as a whole. However, this second time around using the Demo I have noticed that SEOC does not return nearly as many results as it had prior when it used Google for the SEOC.

    I have been wanting to buy Market Samurai since I had initially tried it but money has been really tight the past few months so I have been unable to purchase it for those reasons. I will also mention that with the way things are currently with MS using Bing I am kind of on the fence about my decision to purchase your software Regretfully, I have to make my thoughts clear on your decision to use Bing in lieu of Google for SEOC and other areas of the software!

    I have been doing SEO for about 4 years now and I will be very adament when I say that I would not rely on Bing to make me toast let alone trust their data to be accurate in comparison to Google's!
    Even if they do posses 30% of the Market share here in the US it is soley because Americans have become lazy by nature I really cannot believe that it has anything to do Micro$ofts Tech.

    I mean hell, you would think that seeing how Microsoft governs about 83% of the computer operating system industry that they would be ahead of the curve on just about everything. Lets look at Internet Explorer as a perfect example they are behind in all of the current coding standards for web design and by far present the biggest pain in the ass when building websites compared to other browsers.

    So no I would not be inclined to believe they are formidable competitor for Google when it comes to search algorithms!

    Is it true that MS has an inherent coding problem? Ergo the constant scrambling to fix problems?

    Is the huge percentage of “Free Users” causing a problem?

    Are the accusations leveled by SEO Powersuite CEO true?
