What's the deal with Keyword Elite 2.0?

36 replies
I have the original Keyword Elite. Will we receive the update to 2.0 or is this being marketing as a "different" tool that would have to be purchased. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    You have to purchase it new, but you should have received a discount in your email.

    That's kind of weird. What is the discount for existing members?

    Yeah, I didn't get a discount offer, but I sure got slammed with affiliate emails on this. I just assumed when I logged into Keyword Elite, I'd get some kind of pop-up offer telling me about some awesome upgrade for his loyal customers.

    What can I say, I live in affiliate marketing dreamland where everyone treats everyone else like friends and scammers just don't exist.

    The original KWE never lived up to the hype in my opinion, but it was a good tool even if the results were a little buggy.

    Lately, I've been using Market Samurai in conjunction with Googles keyword tool and don't really feel like I need to go anywhere else for keyword research.

    But, hey, I haven't even looked at the new Keyword Elite, so I probably am missing the keyword tool of a lifetime and will lose my shirt to some noob that bought the program.

      If you're a KE1 customer and you didn't get the discount cupon, contact Brad's support desk.


      EDIT: The correct help desk link is in Brad's post below. Sorry about giving the wrong link, Brad.


      He said they would get you taken care of.

      Hey guys, I posted the answer to this question in a different thread, but will post here too.
      I personally mailed out the special coupon code to all KE 1.0 users yesterday. If you didn't receive the email, please submit a support ticket and Charlie, who is sitting 2 doors down from me (with his skin tight cargo pants on... hehe... Don't tell him I said that) will hook you up as fast as he can :-)

      Email is pretty unreliable, so that could be the reason you didn't receive it. That, or you had registered an old email address awhile back that you no longer use. Whatever the case, go ahead and submit a support ticket hereSupport Desk) and we'll hook you up ASAP. Include your clickbank receipt number so we can verify your original purchase. I trust you guys, but we have to do this because there's always some dishonest people that ruin things for all of us honest guys/gals.

      Thanks!

          Hi, the serious software developers are not out to compete against others and say "hey, get our stuff... Here's why it's better... and why all the other ones suck... blah blah blah".

          Atleast that's not what we're all about. The companies that are here to stay, focus (or SHOULD focus) on adding value to whatever community they serve. I know without a doubt we did that with KE 2.0, as it IS the best tool of it's kind or I would not have released it. Whether you use it or not is fine with me. Use whatever you feel comfortable with :-) I just want to see our community continue to grow and evolve as it has over the past several years.

          I know you already know this, but wanted to post it anyway.

          To address your original comment, I will tell you that the key here is in the free training.

          Registered this morning: KEUniversity.com (will be live in < 30 days or you can give me a swift kick in the rear) and it WILL have more free training than anything you've seen or heard about in the past.

          That's about all I'll say about that.

            I agree i never realized so many lists had my emails till KE2.0 came out, got spammed to death on deals offers reviews and bonuses , its just crazy.

            So anyone have it and can really say that its any better then the other same keyword tools that everyone and their uncle is coming out with ?

            Market Samarai does a lot what does this do that that doesnt?

    Keyword Elite 2.0 then ends up $97

    That seems pretty good to me...

      You could get KWE2.0 for $97 anyway, just search the Keyword Elite 2.0 on google and you will see #1 paid ad says "Keyw0rd Elite" $100 -Off.
      However, I'm thinking about using my own clickbank link to buy it.
      I think they pay like 60% of sale price, so I pay $197 right now but I will get $118 back so I will end up only paying 79$ ).

        No, I actually don't think the payout is that high. I think the commission is around $45 w/ no upsells.

        That's funny. You know who the users are as you sent out the emails - but they have to dig up a CB receipt from a few years ago?

        Brad - Sorry - not trying to be rude. Just seems like you'd request the registration number instead.

          Totally agree to that. KE 1.0 was purchased a long while ago - don´t expect us to lock the paypal slip behind bars. But we sure have the reg number.
          Haven´t received any upgrade offer either.

          KE 2.0 comes with the forced continuity (delayed) membership in Search Marketing Elite, which we could cancel, of course, before the end of our free first month. I did submit a ticket to cancel that membership and it was acknowledged. However, I now have received a seller's cancellation request via ClickBank to cancel KE 2.0 itself! I hope this was just a mistake and not a indication that KE 2.0 itself is tied to some kind of membership plan ...I didn't understand it to be that way.

          I rejected the KE 2.0 cancellation, by the way. It's a great piece of software. A little rough in places but I'm sure these will be smoothed out.

            As a followup to this situation, it appears that the ClickBank transaction was erronously processed and included the cancellation of my entire order instead of just the recurring charges part. This has been corrected at last!

        I bought Market Samurai when it first came out because it approached keyword research in a very intuitive way, at least for me.

        And with every new module that gets released, I know I got my moneys worth times ten.

    Will Keyword Elite 2.0 be to the detriment of Micro Niche Finder. MNF is a great tool which I have found more easier to use than KWE ver 1, but I notice that KWE 2.0 now has a feature that MNF has had for while which is it can give a green light on keywords to use.

    Will Micro Niche Finder raise the bar to compete?

      I have been using keyword elite 2 for a few hours, and I have to say I am a little disapointed. It did not manage to find me anything new of interest in my main niche, but then that it perhaps because I have researched that niche to death already!

      Perhaps I was expecting too much, ie to find some killer keyword out of the blue! Still for a new niche it would speed things up, as it took me quite a while to gather my keywords myself before.

        Yep, just submit a support ticket over to Charlie in the desk and he'll hook you up with the coupon code. The more I hear things like this, the more I've come to realize that email is 100% completely unreliable and getting worse and worse each day. Chances are, the email I sent out went straight to your junk folder, you registered an email address that you no longer use, or the email just went off into la la land.

        Whatever the case, go ahead and send a ticket over to the Chaz man in our desk, and we'll take care of you! We're answering all of those tickets first. There were 350+ tickets regarding coupon codes this morning. So, if you have already submitted a ticket about this, be on the lookout for a reply today. Thanks for your patience!

        Here is the support desk: Support Desk

    If you do CPA plus affiliate stuff KWE2 is good. But I prefer Market Samurai. However, remember it all comes down to what you're goal is. Personally, I would get both. A good tool is a good tool and those two are the best!

      I agree about MS. The videos are amazing and I love the fact that the software is updated regularly which is a great bonus for members. I've got KE1 and it's alright but never got any updates w/ it. I just think that for newbs KE2 has some features that you're never going to need but as you say getting both KE2 and MS can't hurt.

    Credit where it's due.

    I asked them to cancel the recurring fees today, just a few hours ago.

    I received a confirmation from their helpdesk that it has been cancelled and a Clickbank confirmation.

    The helpdesk message was , errm shall we say , short and sweet but , you have to give credit for prompt attention and dealing with customer issues.
