Been using Market Samurai and decided to go back to my old manual method with free tools as it doesn't give enough detail.
Before I go any futher. MS is the most comprehensive SEO research tool available. If your into PPC the Keyword elite is better, but for SEO analysis, MS is market leader right now.
Anyway, back to why I am disgruntled.
1. MS doesnt give info on second page! Looking at page 2 of google shows soooo much. Your could have what looks like a competitive front page but all subsequent pages are wide open. This a lot of time means you can creep onto first page. And sometimes keywords look fairly easy but have several pages of extremely competitive results. Looking just at first page is not enough.
2. MS doesnt show the text used in the title, URL or the description. Whether the ranking URL has relevancy to the root domain of the URL has big impact on ranking factors. As sometime a page may have low inbound links, but its same topic as root domain and root domain has shed loads.
3. Every time I click back to my keyword list after researching competitiveness, I have to wait for results to re-load. Why doesn't this casche?
4. No feature to check keyword density of anchor text in incoming links to a domain (like in seo elite).
I do like market samurai, and I think its a nice software. But until 1-3 in my list has been sorted, it is quicker for me using web tools (some paid, some free).
Anyway, if they add these features I will be happy as a pig in proverbial.
