Hi, is anyone using Keyword Demon? Is it better than Market Samurai or Traffic Travis?

    I purchased the software about 2 weeks ago, and while I can't say anything bad about the software itself, I will say that the product creator's customer service is terrible, and that they don't honor their refund policy.

    I sent a total of three emails (through their Support Ticket Center) all requesting a refund. In the first email I mentioned that I had purchased products from them in the past, but that I had decided that this particular product wasn't for me; and consequently, that I was requesting a refund per their 30 day refund guarantee.

    Shortly after, I received a reply on the 11th of November informing me that my request would be processed. Needless to say, nearly two weeks & two additional emails later, I've yet to receive another reply nor my refund.

    So I'm just putting this post out there, to let you guys know - "Buyers Beware"!

        Same here. I have never seen it work properly from the day I bought it. To start with it was generating 0 page rank columns which made all the other column values wrong too. He says he did 2 updates, but it doesn't update and the same old version no shows up even after updating. The software is very shoddily put together using some Winautomation stuff. At the end of the day, it doesn't do what it says on the tin. Asking for a refund.

        But the new trend that I am noticing with JVZoo products is that the owners simply refuse a refund, because unlike Clickbank, JVZoo doesn't offer a refund and asks you to get in touch with the owner. Once the owner refuses we are left with no other alternative but to file a dispute with Paypal. Even that we will not win because Paypal doesn't refund digital products.

        No wonder all these predators are selling through JVZoo nowadays.

    This software is the most buggy thing I have ever experienced, missing most data, can't import (have been fixed), skipping many of the keywords. But it's not strange it have bugs when they made the software from 2 or 3 different bots/ui (one is winautomation )

          I am happy to note that as of now the software has been updated and all problems it had initially have been rectified. I downloaded the latest version and it now does what it promised (the zero PR columns problem has been rectified and processing speed is also better). So I finally did not go ahead with the refund. This is just for your info.

        Customer service is lousy, the thing doesn't work right - at least not on my Vista 64 bit system - and I have not received support in a timely manner from them - wrote them over a week ago and still no response even though I had gotten one response before.

        Seems they are not big on customer service, and in my opinion the software has GREAT potential but I am not convinced they are going to ever make it live up to that potential. I am probably going to have to get a refund even though I would much rather have it work as it is meant to work.

        On mine the LSI and Domain columns are grayed out and won't let me see that info, even though I am updated to the latest version. I suspect this has to do with the fact I was told to run the Portable version as opposed to their making the regular version work with my machine. I can't be sure though - because they won't answer my support request.

        Too bad - yet another cr*ppy software from people looking to make a killing instead of looking to create a good name and business for themselves. I call it "slash and burn" marketing.

        It also has other problems.
        It has no sorting function within the software so it works like this:
        You have to go to google keyword planner first and get and download a list of keywords. The problem is the way GKP is designed it comes up with GROUPS of keywords and there is no way to sort them except one by one, manually. You can't combine groups so you basically have to download each group you want and so you end up with keywords that you would like to delete but as near as I can tell there is no way to delete them.

        So you end up importing a lot of keywords into Keyword Demon that you don't really want, then you

        a) have to wait for it to process keywords you don't really want and
        b) you have to then manually go through a huge list of keywords and "favorite" the ones you like which is very time consuming.

        That's the other thing:
        the training is severely lacking. In my opinion they should spend more time showing you how to delete the keywords you don't want from gkp before you download them but as near as I can tell there is no way to do this.

        Furthermore:
        the software is "clunky". By that I mean that it doesn't update itself, for example; you have to go into the folder it lives in and click on the update file. Huh?? Why not just have an UPDATE button on the user interface??

        There are other examples of clunkiness but the bottom line is:
        * it is not fully functional
        * it is not ready for prime time (appears as someone else said, to have been thrown together)
        * it has horrible tech support

        Yeah, no kidding. The post he wrote wasn't even slightly real in appearance.

          I got a refund after a few days trying to find my way out and feeling stupid and frustrated.

          If the developer sells prior to fixing bugs, well, poor buyer experience. They should just consider doing it the other way around just to give customer a friendly experience, not to mention showing some respect to the time people invest in buying, implementing, eventually refunding :confused:

          Herewith my 2cent for quick refund on any product that will save your time and energy:

          1) Log into your Paypal account.
          2) View the detail of transaction.
          3) Grab the e-mail address of the vendor
          4) Do not use the e-mail address shown in the "support" or whatever, as those rarely got read or answered.
          5) Use the vendor e-mail address you got from Paypal and give the whole detail of the transaction and ask for refund in a courteous manner.

          That shoud save everyone's precious time and efforts, incl. the vendor's.

          Hope this helps.

          PS: I do hate to get refunds but eventually I want to buy only the BEST products. Makes sense ?

    When you start it, it auto checks for updates. The previous errors of LSI not working have been fixed, it's up to v 1.5. Quite good now that they've got the bugs out. And support is generally quick.

    Hi, i am the developer of keywords demon, so i can confirm "juspax1" is not a fake review. we have over 2000 users not asking for refund and happy with the current v1.6.

    The software have some initial issue, that is because many different web approach will be vary on different pc, we have found it and fixed them quickly. then push an update automatically to everyone.

    version 1.6 now have the following base on users and Joshua suggestion:

    - new LSI scraper (faster and work for everyone)
    - localization (you can use your local google domain to run analysis)
    - youtube indicator (check top 10 url if any youtube video, so you can quickly make one and blast backlink to dominate)

    Thank you for all clients who giving a chance for improvement, there are more to come.

    Andrew

    Anyone else bought this research tool? It's been over two months now since it's release, how does it really stack up compared to other keyword software tools?

    I have not tried keywords demon before so can say anything about it. I use market samurai and it works perfectly for me for all my keyword and niche research.

    Don't know about any other but will keep on using market samurai for now till a better comes to the market. You can never have enough though in this line of business that we are in.

      Actually I have Keywords Demon running on my other machine right now.
      It's ok, does what it does, slowly but surely.

      It sort of depends on what you want from your keyword research, competition research, which numbers interest you and so on.

      Best keyword tool in my opinion though has to be SECockpit. Yes, it's $67 a month but well worth it if you need that much power at your disposal.

          Hi Julie, i have a product launch last week LSI demon and some user have issue running the app, therefore the ticket get accumumated, i am still answering and finding the issue, but most of the issue is able to solve with an update from my side.

          for LSI demon user: right click on software shortcut, click "run as administrator" will work fine.
          i will find a better solution for client who have less administrative rights.

          Update: i think everything is working fine now, if you still find any issue, please email to cashinnet9988@yahoo.com, i will have a look for you.

      I am guessing whoever didn't like the tool just didn't understand it's value or use it properly.

      I am satisfied!
      Thanks for your comment, we have some licensing verification issue in v1.75 & 6, that is because i mess up the product name in the verification script.

      i am fixing it now and will push v1.77 soon.
