    Hi Laurian,

    Each software has its own advantages.

    Their features are different. So read the sales page carefully before purchase.

    Paul,

    Overall I like Market Samurai the best and use it most. That being said, I also use Micro Niche Finder as well. If I were only allowed 1 out of the 3, hands down for me it's market Samurai.

      Totally agree.

    Market Samurai is simply the best. It has excellent service support and continuous upgrade by the group of "inventors".

    Very useful and powerful tool. I love it!

    Market Samurai rocks. Just wish you could install it on more than one computer!
    • Profile picture of the author Boadicea
      tag2453, you *can* install Market Samurai on more than one computer - you can install it on *two* computers, and without an extra licence - how cool is that.

      I recently started a website devoted to Market Samurai resources and reviews (see my sig for the link). Since you already use the software, you might like to check out my latest Market Samurai tips and also the list of Market Samurai videos in the post before that.

      Laurian, I love Market Samurai. This software does so much more than you might already know. Much, much more than just research.

      To check up some of the other things it can do for you, you can view the whole salesletter (there's a link to it on the right-hand side of my site) scroll down to about two thirds down the salespage, and you'll see a whole list of things that will surprise you.

      You can. You can install MS on 2 computers. If your having issues, go to the MS site and log in, manage your software via their support panel. Reset it. Then register up to 2 copies of MS.

    Is Market Samurai running a promotion currently? Any coupon etc. for discounted price?

      internetmarketer 99, the competition results (SEOC) in Market Samurai are taken straight from Google; they're the results of the phrase-match searches (made in quotes), so you need to do the comparison search as "your keyword" in quotes. Also, you want to make sure that you're using exactly the same settings in Market Samurai as you're using in Google.

      Hey Ray,

      I think the clock expired on this, but if you ping 30DC 2009 version, there "was" a 40% discount on Samurai.

      As a 30 day challenger, you can now get Market Samurai for $87 instead of the regular price of $149. That’s a discount of 42%. I can’t believe the Noble Samurai boys are offering Market Samurai at this price but there it is…what can I do.

      PS: I bought MNF (v4.2) 6 months ago ~ who wants it for 33% off?

    I use Market Samurai and i like it. I Have not used any other, other than google keyword tool.

    I installed the Market Samurai trial.

    Nearly every result I got was waaaaay different than Wordtracker and SEOBook.

    In fact, when I checked the "competition" results, which is verifiable via Google, every one I checked was completely off.

    I really want MS to fulfill it's 'promise', but I've found the results to be very unreliable.

      It pulls from google external tool not wordtracker (which is a good thing to most people), so they would be different. Edit: actually results are 100% reliable against google external keyword tool.

      This is a common concern.

      The truth is, reliability isn't the real issue.

      Market Samurai can only ever display the data that it finds (it's software - it just performs a simple process).

      But unless you know the process it's using, you'll never get the same results if you try to duplicate them manually.

      So although people often worry about Market Samurai being slightly different to the data they receive manually, it's usually because they're gathering the data in a slightly different way.

      Let me show you what I mean...

      Originally Posted by internetmarketer99 View Post

      Yes.

      SEOBook's keyword suggestion tool uses Wordtracker's keyword suggestion tool. (So they *should* match each-other)

      But Market Samurai will ALMOST NEVER match either of them. We do something that I think is much more accurate - we use Google's own data.

      Wordtracker uses data from meta search engines - like Dogpile. Unfortunately, most people these days don't use meta search engines anymore - most people use Google data. So Wordtracker needs to scale-up its data to estimate how much traffic there might be on the larger search engines.

      So if Dogpile has [say] 1% of the search market, and Google has 80%, and Dogpile is your source of data, you could assume that 80 days worth of Dogpile data is equal to 1 day of Google searches... But unfortunately, this isn't always the case.

      For example, most internet marketers would use Google to search for products and services - not meta search engines... Likewise programmers, and other tech-savvy people. So the data gets skewed in some markets.

      Market Samurai uses Google's own keyword traffic data to estimate traffic levels.

      It sounds obvious - I know - but Market Samurai was the first keyword tool to do this.

      When we're checking competition results, there are two things we check:

      1. The number of competitors (the SEO Competitor counts that you see in the Keyword Research module), and;
      2. The strength of competition (the SEO Competition Analysis module)

      Let's look at both of these.

      The SEO Competitor counts are based on phrase-matched results in Google.

      So if your keyword is dog training (to pick a good internet marketing example ) then Market Samurai will do a Google search for "Dog Training" (in quotes) to find out how many web-sites are using that phrase.

      It's a much more indicative measure of competition - because there's a big difference between "credit cards" and companies that make greeting "cards" that shop owners can buy on "credit"... Or "dog training" and a video store's web-site that stocks both "training" day and reservoir "dogs"

      In that way, Market Samurai is counting the number of sites that at least mention the keyword phrase... Because it's the most basic thing a web-site can do if they want to compete for rankings on the keyword.

      Now, SEO Competition Analysis...

      This is the top 10 results in Google for a keyword, and their SEO factors.

      This is affected by your project settings - so you'll get different results if you select "All Countries and Territories" to "Botswana" to "United States".

      Or if you're comparing results that you search manually, to results that Market Samurai gathers for a specific region. (Because Google will automatically try to tailor results to where it sees you're from)

      Or if you're logged into a Google account when you search (again, because Google will try to tailor results to where it sees you're from)

      Or if you try doing a search in Internet Explorer, and then try again with Firefox or Safari or Chrome (because for some weird reason, Google shows different results to users of different browsers)

      HOWEVER...

      ...what Market Samurai is getting is an average, typical top 10 competitor snapshot for the region that you have selected.

      Google has 100's, perhaps 1,000's, or even 10,000's of servers all displaying search results (each with slightly different data) - and they want to tailor results to users.

      But what Market Samurai does is uses a smart system for getting typical results from any region in the world, tailored to any language in the world.

      So although Google might change its data in different circumstances, what you see in Market Samurai will be very similar to what searchers see (if they're coming from the region that you selected in Market Samurai)

      I hope this helps you out.

      Brent

    I just tried samurai today myself, and it is a GREAT tool. Only beef is the small screen, but that is probably due to Adobe Air and cannot be helped...

    Boadicea,

    I found it hard to find the link you referred to. Could you clarify, PM maybe?
    Also, for how long will the promo last?


    Thanks,

      Market Samurai does it all... practically. I've been using it for months and i still haven't used the advanced features. Each of the modules is like a seperate application unto itself. Kudos to the MS team for making such a vaulable product

      Sorry I didn't get back to you both earlier - we had a holiday here in the UK.

      Ray, the links are on the right hand side of my site. However, the promotion is open to anyone who signs up at the moment, so you can do it through Noble Samurai's own site if you prefer (they're the team behind Market Samurai): http://www.noblesamurai.com/products.php

      I don't know how long the promo will last.

      PLEASE NOTE: the info I previously put into this post was incorrect, & I have now corrected it.

    I have been heavily hitting MS for the last 24 hours and all I can say is WOW!

    I still like KE for crawling all the top sites for the keyword phrase, and extracting those. I am thinking of getting those and importing them to MS. That would do the 'lateral thinking'.

    Market Samurai is by far the best keyword tool I've tried...highly recommend

      curiousguy, could you please expand on that "trouble with google" problem you're having - what sort of trouble is it? Ie, what happens, and at what point does it happen?

      @curiousguy, if you download MS right now (free), then I think there is a 7 day deadline for getting it at $97. After that it would be $147 or something.

      I got it at $97. So far so good. As I said, I am not throwing away my KElite, and will use that to get thousands of keywords (proj 1) and then run that thru MS, and let MS take care of it from there.

      I don't know what Boadicea offers besides that, but I am sure he will jump in.
