First, I hope this is the right place to post this, if not I apologize ahead of time. I have seen mixed posts on market samurai. Some people say they still use it while others say it's no good or out dated, etc. I have a couple questions about it... Is it still a relevant and effective tool for keyword/seo research? Do the built in proxies actually work? (meaning not blocked by Google) I'm not thrilled with the idea of using a program that requires proxies but I'm really in need of a tool that will help me save time and I would like to test the waters at first with something that isn't going to have a recurring monthly charge. If market samurai should be avoided in your opinion, what are some decent pieces of downloadable software that you would suggest instead?
