    Checked out the sales page - can't find a video actually showing it in operation anywhere... seems a bit dumb!

    Would love to see a video of the program in operation. The sales page is the usual "YOU CAN BOOST YOUR RANK AND BE RICH LIKE ME!" garbage. Showing how the program works would sell anyone educated about this stuff, it's only the noobs that fall for the 10,000 word sales copy.

      You do realize you can download it and use the demo all you want? There's just a few advanced features disabled.. and all the topics have videos built into the program.

        You do realize that TT4 is showing you the Broad Match results for keyword research? If you go by those numbers then you are waisting your time.

        I don't think it's simple coding but TT4 is not a game changer by any means.
        Mark is a great guy and Affilorama is the first IM product i ever purchased, but unfortunately TT4 is not his best product.

        Even with the problems Market Samurai is having it's still better than TT4, now TT4 may get some much needed improvements soon giving it a boost but for now it's going to be relegated to my spare drive.

      Yep its worth it. I have all the IM tools you can name (Xrumer , SEnuke X , AMR , Scrapebox , TT , SERPAttacks , Rank tracker PRo, SEscout and more) and this tool is a great addition if you run an SEO service or want to rank your own site.

        I run an SEO firm... I'm just picky about software, judging by all you listed you seem to be program happy. The biggest issue I have, is that I would rather go by instincts, logic, and general info available to anyone, than to use a program that supposedly makes it easier and more efficient.

        I don't mean any offense to that, I'm just trying to judge to see if I should get it or not. I guess I need to read up on it a bit more. Wish somebody could do a video review.

      Yeah, v3 is free to download, v4 you have to buy it to use it. There is a moneyback guarantee though so we'll probably just go ahead and buy it.

      Sorry didn't mean to say only noobs would buy it I've been using v3 free version for a while, it's a good product. I just wish people would stop creating this gigantic sales pages, and just list the features and have a simple video showing off the best features. It would sell me way more than showing pictures of your boats, how much money you make, etc...

    Hey guys, here are some videos of it in operation (these were recorded before some bug fixes and additions here and there, but will give you 90% of what it does):

    Dashboard - TTV4 Video Tutorial - Dashboard | Affilorama
    Research - TTV4 Video Tutorial - Research | Affilorama
    My site - TTV4 Video Tutorial - My site | Affilorama
    PPC - TTV4 Video Tutorial - PPC | Affilorama
    SEO - TTV4 Video Tutorial - SEO | Affilorama

    I agree with what you guys are saying about having the income screenshots on the page, I'm still split testing to see what converts best (I hope you can understand that from a marketing perspective).

    My preference would be a short, clean salescopy with video demonstrations of the features, but unfortunately that formula has often resulted in terrible conversion rates for me. Still, I am continuing to split test the sales page and will take this feedback from you guys on board. I'll certainly try the style of sales page that you are recomending here. As far as sales pages are concerned, I want to accurately represent what the software does (ie I hate 'blind' salescopies), while maximizing conversion rates.

    On a side note, make sure you check out the bonuses. Don't underrate them, if you are a member, go through them, I put a LOT of work into them and I believe that many of you will gain tremendous value from them.

    All the best!

      Hi everyone!

      I used TT v3 for a while...it satisfied me a lot! Now have purchased TT v4 few hours ago and made few tests.

      I post here an email sent their support about some (almost on my laptop installation) buggy (or missing compared to TT v3) features:

      Hi,
      I've just purchased TT v4 and made few tests after used TT v3 (free version) for a while.
      I'm very happy with the new interface...a bit less satisfied with some buggy features (or missing features compared to TT v3)...

      I'm working on a Win Vista SP2 laptop and TT is installed under "Crogram FilesTraffic Travis v4"

      Here the bugs I found (i've attacched an image or two for each point, except #6):

      1. all the icons are missing in on Page Warings reports and Ranking reports (maybe an issue with absolute path with space chars in it?) -> HIGH PRIORITY!
      2. for some pages backlinks count is present and correct (for example, 75), but when i double-click the bl count number (and push the "analyze" button too) no backlinks details are displayed (i was expecting 75 bl information records). I've tested this feature in TT v3, where it works fine. I don't know if this is the problem but i think that if Majestic SEO/SEOmoz data are not present you should anyway retrieve informations from Yahoo Site Explorer! Better thing would be if i could choose between the two different bl data sources (Majestic-SEOMOZ and Yahoo) -> HIGH PRIORITY!
      3. can't do any keyword research!!! I've also filled the Adwords credentials fields (which are correct) and tested this feature in TT v3, where it works fine. I fill the keyword field and push "fetch" button...it hangs for a while (hear a couple sort of mouseclick noise) then everything stops and no data is displayed -> HIGH PRIORITY!
      4. can't find precious informations in SEO-competition tab wich were present in TT v3 (Seo Analysis feature): TBL, DMOZ, YAHOO, Title, Desc, H1 tag, GCA wich are VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS (don't say they're obsolete SEO factors please!) -> HIGH PRIORITY!
      5. can't find precious informations in Backlinks page like "Link In", "Link Out", "Follow" as present on TT v3 (i based this issue on columns header becouse can't retrieve datas as mentioned above): HIGH PRIORITY!
      6. knowledge base menu option doesn't open anything: LOW PRIORITY


      Please confirm you received this email and answer as soon as possible...thanks in advance!

      Best Regards,
      Riccardo
      Anyone else got these problems ?

      What do you think about the requested feature for users to choose between backlinks data source (Majestic/Yahoo) or almost a Maj datas replacement with Yahoo datas when needed for some pages/domains?

      I'm going to post their answer here so may can help anyone else. Hope you apreciate...

          I'm sad for you (and me too!)...

          ...but i'm happy becouse now i know i'm not the only one to get these problems...i thought i was too clumsy

          Anyway i'm optimistic...TT v4 is very very young...the developers obviously know also the v3 code...so i hope their team is going to fill the gap soon...I REALLY HOPE!!!

    Sup guys. I made a video review of the product. I will have a more detailed analysis of each tab/section up later tonight. *edit* vid removed because I did a more in-depth analysis and found lots of bugs. Check later post /end edit

    I agree, there are a few portions of the program that are fubar, but for the most part it works well. To answer the one question above about "where is the competition data" that shows the star rating etc... it's under the "Research" tab. Run a search for a keyword and then it's on the far right hand column under "SEO difficulty"

      Is there any way to get exact match search counts when doing keyword research with this tool and not the broad match results? Broad match is worthless IMO.

    Hey guys, I just recorded this tour video:

    Traffic Travis Tour Video (With controls) | Affilorama

    Regarding bugs, we are releasing updates daily and most are getting fixed within a day or 2 of being discovered. Many users haven't even encountered bugs as it is working perfectly on most computers, depending on how they are using it.

    Fair review ryanjm, but like I said, I can't see those bugs still being there in a matter of days. They did not occur during beta testing, and some are occuring due to updates we have made not being compatible with all systems.

    People who join during launch get launch special pricing, plus the bonuses. This closes tuesday 10th May.

    Ryanjm, I'm interested in hearing your review of the bonuses too if you get time, as I put a lot of work into them and they are packed with powerful marketing advice that I'm sure you'll make great money out of.

    @macdonjo, it isn't simple coding at all. My full time programmers have spent many months working full time on it and continue to update it daily. Even since launching version 3 two years ago, we've been updating it every week due to changes in how different api's work, the search engines display their data, and so forth, so that it can continue to run smoothly and accurately long term. It's not just about the complexity of the programming, it's about maintaining compatibility with how the data is mined, and compatibility with every user's operating system, and adding in further suggestions from users. It is a permanent ongoing project designed to keep you on top of your seo & ppc marketing. It's not just a 'launch and forget about it' software product that doesn't get updated regularly.

    All the best,

      markling,

      Will we be able to do keyword research using exact match search numbers any time soon? I really like the keyword strength of competition function but I'd like to use that with exact match or even have the ability to import a list of keywords from a different tool and use Traffic Travis to check strength of competition on the imported keywords.

      Thanks.

      I'll definitely check back if/when these issues are fixed. I understand that some bugs might have popped up, but some 'issues' seemed to be conscious choices that I don't understand, such as the broad match global search volume. No one uses that.

      The bonuses I had planned on checking out when I wasn't busy. I'm really happy with what I'm doing right now and getting good results, so I'm not really looking for a new 'system.' I guess I'm just past the information gathering stage and simply taking action right now. I'll definitely check some of the stuff out when I've got some down time though.

      sorry Mark but the software simply will not work for me. It constantly says 'not responding' and when it does open I get 'oops sorry we found a bug' and then it wants to send a message and close. I am very dissatisfied with my purchase frankly. I have no issues like this EVER with Market Samurai. I really do not think that this software is ready for the market at this stage. I keep contacting your support section and their service is so poor. I am a lawyer in your home town and we have met and I wouldn't have a business if I reacted as slowly as they do. If it does not start working soon I will request a refund and go back to using the free version of TT3 which was infinitely more reliable. Regards. Brent Selwyn

    Regard to broad/exact match keyword research...

    I don't think broad match is useless at all, expecially for quite long tail keywords...i think the better way to implement a feature about it is to give users the possibility to choose everytime what kind of research to do...(which is the same feature that other top-sellers software already have...)

      We also will be adding more keyword match variations (and countries) in the very near future, there are just a couple of technical aspects we are working through first.

      My apologies to anyone that has had any issues at all, we are working as fast as possible to resolve them all and will continue to release daily builds for the foreseeable future.

      Any feedback, please send through the "Give Feedback" button in the software as this goes directly to our product development team.

      Thanks heaps.

      Yeah, I've submitted like 6-7 feedback reports. Part of the issue is that some of the problems aren't bugs, but rather just missing/downgraded features.

      "My Site" Missing/Worse Features:

      1. Compare the data you are showing for "page warningings" in V.4 to your own product V.3. Where is the word count and keyword density? You've simplified this at the expense of showing good data. Now we don't know what our KW density is, just that it's "below 2%." That's like if you asked me the speed limit on a road and I said "below 200mph." Just show the numbers. And the word count. And the top 20 words, etc... all of the old data. I mean I was hoping for something perhaps more advanced with new metrics, but I'll settle for just having the old data back.

      My Site Bugs:

      1. The system will hang while updating a site and show a never-ending 'working' logo. You can replicate this by using the same test-site that I did: livinginthelightms.com

      2. Incomplete info. Might be related to the issue in #1, but the PR is showing 0 when it in fact has a PR of 3.

      "Research" Missing/Worse Features:

      1. Broad match. You know this now, but just really confusing to me how this slipped past. Exact match search is one of the first things learned...

      2. Words instead of stars. Why? Relatively easy, kinda easy, sorta easy. Just use the stars, it's way faster to determine competition at a glance than reading columns of words. I know it's somewhat tricky at first because 5 stars could be super hard or super easy, but just put a little key at the top of the page. Problem solved.

      3. Save keyword searches. I don't want to save them to a csv, I just want to be able to see a list of all of the searches I've already run and quickly take a look at the data. Kinda like how market samurai has done for a looong time.

      "Research" Bugs:

      1. Intitle and Inanchor randomly fill in, or not. It just doesn't seem to work all the time for lots of keywords.

      2. SEO difficulty link measurement is whacked. Check it yourself, even Mr. Ling's demo video showed this bug. It shows that the number of links to a page is greater than the number of links to the entire site. This is supposed to be Majestic link data right? I did my own search with Majestic and the numbers coming out of TTv4 are coming from thin air. Therefore, one of the biggest competition measuring metrics is broken, and therefore the keyword research module is useless as of right now.

      3. Domain research flat out doesn't work. I've replicated this numerous times. You press fetch with your keywords automatically entered, and it returns nothing. Or if you put in a phrase like "best trolls for kids" it returns any domain with the word "for" in it.


      Anyway, I could go on (like mentioning there isn't actually even a button to press to update your keyword rankings. You can set the frequency of an update, but if you want to update 'right now' you can't do that.) but I'm sure you guys have your hands full with all of the reports already sent in. I'm glad you guys are working to address the issues and I look forward to using the program once the beta is over.

        I agree with everything you mentioned.
        I just don't understand how Mark who is a very experienced IM'er allowed TT4 to be launched in this state.
        It's almost as if they launched TT4 in this half ass'd BETA version with the intention of fixing problems or adding features as they were reported/requested by users.
        Signature
        Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

          It's exactly what I think too...but TT3 is a great program and THIS is the only point that push me on to give them trust...

          Dare I ask the obvious...

          Mark & Simon, why release this product when it's still buggy? (not tiny bugs, huge obvious bugs)

          Also, why release this product when u can't look at phrase / exact match metrics? And apparently can't see metrics outside the US?

          Your competition does this!

          Why not release the beta (it's still a beta, really!) to a group of selected members , have them test it out before you release.

            Totally agree with you, TT4 is nowhere near complete.

            By Nerik I'm getting the same message: "Google Adwords page failed to load for Traffic Travis. Please try and access the site in Internet Explorer and try again"
            After the latest update i'm also getting this message?

            Well i think i've had enough...
            I have not been able to use TT4 with even modest success since it launched a week ago, i did not pay to be a Beta tester. Really much more testing should have been done before TT4 was released.

              Update to 4.0.0.2730 and bugs still persist...i've read the changelog and it seems they're fixing only aesthetic or secondary problems...why?!?!??

              HEY TT4 GUYS!!! Try to concentrate on the huge main problems!!!
              • Keyword research doesn't work at all!!!
              • Can't choose backlinks data source (Majestic/Seomoz/Yahoo): for some website bl informations are missing!
              • Missing several TT3 *IMPORTANT* columns on SEO Competition analysis (TBL, DMOZ, YAHOO, TITLE, DESC, H1, DOMAIN AGE, etc.)
              • Broad, phrase, exact options are missing for keyword research
              • In keyword research are not present *IMPORTANT* columns (Link In, Link Out, Follow) that were present in TT3
              • Can't choose language and/or country in keyword research
              • ...

              I'm also having large problems with TTv4 (2730).

              Backlink Data
              Even after the backlink data was supposed to be fixed, it's still not accurate for some sites. They need to give us an option to choose where the backlink data is coming from.... Majestic/SEOMoz/Google/Yahoo.
              Example 1: TTV4 reports one of my sites as having zero backlinks.
              Majestic returns 132 backlinks.
              Yahoo returns 23 backlinks.

              Example 2:TTV4 reports another one of my sites as having 287 backlinks.
              But when I check their Backlinks tab for more detail (anchor text etc), it returns 8 backlinks.

              Ranking Data
              This is more accurate but I'm still getting enough incorrect data to make me not trust using TTv4.
              I'm getting odd ranking data sometimes when compared to various other rank trackers and manual checks in Google (using Google US, not logged into Adwords, no cookies etc.. so it's not returning personalized search data).

              On Site SEO
              The reports in V3 were much more detailed.

              Competition
              Again, V3 was more detailed. DMOZ, Title, H1, Domain age etc

              Research
              I don't use this but apparantly is uses Broad match? I did a quick search for one keyword and it showed crazy data. Global Monthly search 1000. Google US Monthly 27100.

              To be honest with you, these are not minor, hard to find bugs which slipped through the beta test stage but massive features which do not work. I'm a bit lost how these were not found. Clearly by reading this post, I can see I'm not the only person having these issues.

              I've reported this to their support, I received a reply saying they expect 95% of the bugs fixed within 2 weeks. I hope so...

              To be fair on them, their support respond quickly and from their replies, I think/hope these bugs will be fixed. So I think we should all give them a chance to fix them.

                Traffic Travis ran into an error getting the keywords from the page. Please try and access the site in Internet Explorer and try again.

                What does this mean? I have set IE as my default browser however there isn't a login section online as the software has been downloaded. The version i am using is v4.0.0.2745.

                Can anyone help with this potentially very easy problem to solve. Am i missing something?

                  Exactly...your issues are the same i encountered...i hope they're going to fix them all in a couple of week (and it's a big amount of time for a product that is selled as a stable-release)

        I actually didn't understood why they didn't recoded on TT4 some zero-cost (no API issue) features like word count/keyword density or the update keywords ranking button that are amazing useful and present on TT3...

        And if you take a look to my first post in this thread you see from pictures that other IMPORTANT features (like the ones about tbl, title, descr, h1 tag, gca on SEO/competition analysis) are missing too...

        Hope they're working fast on a better release...

      Message to Simon Slade of Affilorama. I would love to give you feedback by using the 'give fedback' button BUT I CANNOT OPEN THE SOFTWARE as it simply never responds and all I get is a white page with 'not responding'. I lodged an email with your support team but surprise surprise, no reply overnight. I wish I had read the warrior forum before buying. Will be waiting until 60 days is nearly up to give you a chance to work on it but at this stage I think you will have a flood of refund requests.

      Why do you (or anyone else for that matter) release stuff that clearly isn't ready? Mark Ling is a nice straight up guy and I do not doubt his integrity or honesty for one moment but this debacle with the launch will have people questioning him and traffic travis which is sad.

    Another major shortcoming I have noticed making it almost useless is the way you cant define the region in the Research module, All keyword metrics are from Google US. If I want to know how many people are seraching for the term "australian widgets" on google.com.au, I cant. Its a mystery until I fire up good'o MS.

    Also I want to be able to import my own keywords for analysis, at this stage there is no option for that.

    Market Samurai with all its bugs and slowness can do all this.

    On the plus side, its easy to give them feedback/suggestions and I have already seen 2 updates today, so stuff is happening back in HQ

      I took the plunge with MS back in November and got lost (in a good way!) in its market research stuff...was good for a newbie like me to get info from many sources and put it into one interface, and I'm finally getting to use other features like Rank Tracking.

      So is TT worth it at all for someone who's already purchased MS? Does it add anything beyond what MS offers?

      Appreciate your replies on that...

        Stick with MS mate, it went through some rough times recently but looks
        like Alex and his team have sorted 99% of the problems out.
        TT4 is a huge disappointment at the moment, and does not look like it's going to offer anything special when all bugs are sorted.

    1. all the icons are missing in on Page Warings reports and Ranking reports (maybe an issue with absolute path with space chars in it?) -> HIGH PRIORITY! *THIS IS SOLVED!*

    2. for some pages backlinks count is present and correct (for example, 75), but when i double-click the bl count number (and push the "analyze" button too) no backlinks details are displayed (i was expecting 75 bl information records). I've tested this feature in TT v3, where it works fine. I don't know if this is the problem but i think that if Majestic SEO/SEOmoz data are not present you should anyway retrieve informations from Yahoo Site Explorer! Better thing would be if i could choose between the two different bl data sources (Majestic-SEOMOZ and Yahoo) -> HIGH PRIORITY!

    3. can't do any keyword research!!! I've also filled the Adwords credentials fields (which are correct) and tested this feature in TT v3, where it works fine. I fill the keyword field and push "fetch" button...it hangs for a while (hear a couple sort of mouseclick noise) then everything stops and no data is displayed -> HIGH PRIORITY!

    4. can't find precious informations in SEO-competition tab wich were present in TT v3 (Seo Analysis feature): TBL, DMOZ, YAHOO, Title, Desc, H1 tag, GCA wich are VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS (don't say they're obsolete SEO factors please!) -> HIGH PRIORITY!

    5. can't find precious informations in Backlinks page like "Link In", "Link Out", "Follow" as present on TT v3 (i based this issue on columns header becouse can't retrieve datas as mentioned above): HIGH PRIORITY!

    6. knowledge base menu option doesn't open anything: LOW PRIORITY

    @Simon Slade

    Hi Simon, thank you for update announcement and for your PM too (couldn't reply due to poor post count).

    I've installed the 4.0.0.2607 update....BUT:
    1. haven't seen any changelog durint upgrading...where is it ?
    2. Only #1 issue was solved (missing icons)...what's about other HIGH PRIORITY issues ?
    3. For #6: the menu option is magically disappeared...(anyway, i know it's not a core feature...)

    I do think you and your team are doing your best (TT3 is the proof you work good)...but i *really* need these features to get fixed.

    Can you post a roadmap about fixing #2, #3, #4 and #5 issues please ?

    I'd like almost to know if we're talking about days...weeks...or what ?!?

    Thanks and regards

        on topic - seems like the TT4 launch is going fairly terrible and thats too bad. I used the paid version of TT3 for a few months and loved it until things just stopped working properly (namely the rank tracking feature).

        I would take half an hour to check ranks for one of my sites and then google would just outright ban me. Tried to ask support about this and it's fairly obvious they knew about the problem but weren't willing to admit there were actually any issues.

        Almost jumped into TT4 but really glad I didn't, sad to see a great product go downhill so bad. Hopefully Mark can get things ironed out.

    I believe there is a major problem leading to incorrect results if you're based outside the usa.

    The following screen shot is show the top 10 results are made up of both .co.uk and .com search results.

    Position 2 and 6 are the top results on .co.uk - with the rest mostly from .com

    Each top 10 result for any keyword never gives 100% .com results.

    The .co.uk results seem to be in random posistions.

    This will means the competitive calculation will be wrong.

    If you're outside the usa - can you confirm you see the same type of error in producing the top 10 results - thanks.

      Hi buzzer,

      TT4 seems to have several bugs at the moment as commented on this thread...but what you mentioned doesn't seem to be an issue

      I'm from Italy and I have TT4: doing the same research i'm obtaining same your result (as the image you've attached) and is the same result that you get if you query Google in this way within your browser:

      discount mountain bikes - Google Search

      (search in Google.com, english language, personalized options off, no country flag)

      Obviously if you're doing the same search in Google.com.uk you get different results and this is normal...IMHO...

        Thanks nerik,

        I now understand how the top 10 are produced by TT - ie. using no country flag.

        So this means the top 10 will always be WRONG.

        It's crazy to generate the top 10 from different country serp's - since nobody searches with no country flag set.

        I'm very surprised no body else has picked up on this - any others want to comment?

          I do not think that a search carried out without the country flag is most definitely incorrect ... it's surely more impartial.

          Google.com is used not only in the U.S.

    I post here another message sent to their support, after upgraded to last release (4.0.0.2667):



    Hi,

    just updated TT to 4.0.0.2667 release.

    The bugs I had found are still alive...

    1. for some pages backlinks count is present and correct (for example, 75), but when i double-click the bl count number (and push the "analyze" button too) no backlinks details are displayed (i was expecting 75 bl information records). I've tested this feature in TT v3, where it works fine. I don't know if this is the problem but i think that if Majestic SEO/SEOmoz data are not present you should anyway retrieve informations from Yahoo Site Explorer! Better thing would be if i could choose between the two different bl data sources (Majestic-SEOMOZ and Yahoo) -> HIGH PRIORITY!
    2. Can't do any keyword research!!! I've also filled the Adwords credentials fields (which are correct) and tested this feature in TT v3, where it works fine. I fill the keyword field and push "fetch" button...it hangs for a while (hear a couple sort of mouseclick noise) then everything stops and no data is displayed -> HIGH PRIORITY! (Something has changed since last feature check...see attachment)
    3. can't find precious informations in SEO-competition tab wich were present in TT v3 (SeoAnalysis feature): TBL, DMOZ, YAHOO, Title, Desc, H1 tag, GCA wich are VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS (don't say they're obsolete SEO factors please!) -> HIGH PRIORITY!
    4. can't find precious informations in Backlinks page like "Link In", "Link Out", "Follow" as present on TT v3 (i based this issue on columns header becouse can't retrieve datas as mentioned above): HIGH PRIORITY!


    I know you're working hard...but I really need these bugs get fixed in a short time!!!

    Another question...as you can see in attachment: why the message is talking about "Adsense"....the Google suggestion tool is an Adwords tool (and not Adsens). Also in TT program options the credentials are referred to the Adwords account (and not Adsense), isn't it ?!?!?

    Best regards,
    Riccardo

    I still cannot get into program, and all I get is 'not responding'... After message above I noted my last update was 4.0.0.2607 so I redownloaded installation file fully hoping it might be 2667 or higher (and hopefully a runner), but after reinstalling I am now told my registration code has been used too many times.

    Don't think I have ever had this much hassle with any program. Software quality is rock bottom or lower. Terrible...

      Hey Richard, there's a little yellow upgrade message that appears in the bottom-left hand corner of the TT4 interface window whenever a new upgrade is available. It's easy to miss unless you're looking for it, but you can click on it to upgrade.

      It'd help if that upgrade message were more visible, like somewhere closer to where your eyes are usually focused.

        Yes, and have used it once earlier. But for several days I cannot get TT to open at all, so forced to download update. But locked out altogether now until I get a new registration code.

        Last time it ran the non-US date format bug was still there. Had to change my system dates to US-style to get program to run. But that only worked a couple of times. Seems the program updates are all over the place addressing problems. Software development quality is very poor as I said, so I guess updating the way they are working (fire-fighting) just adds more bugs. Will be a long time, if ever, to get a usable product operating like this.

          Yes, that's really frustrating when you can't even open the app. I had the problem where I maxed out on the installation and had to shoot off a message to support to have it reset. It was done by the following day, but I didn't get a message letting me know. I tried installing anyway, and was able to do it. So if you opened a ticket for a reset, give it a try again to see if you can reinstall.

      Same problem here, I moved TT to a virtual machine, but now I can't active due to

    One issue with TT4 I had in the beginning was a message telling me to upgrade my flash. That was weird because I already had the most current flash version. This issue wasn't a show stopper because all it prevented me from doing was watching the training videos in TT4; it was just more of an annoyance. I submitted a trouble ticket and bounced a few emails to the support rep. The last email I received from them was informing me that the support team was "puzzled" with my issue -- I liked they were upfront about it even though "puzzled" is not exactly what I wanted to hear -- and they suggested I uninstall flash and TT4 and reinstall. Unfortunately, that didn't work and I ended up exceeding my maximum number of times I can install TT4. So I had to get that reset.

    No one ever got back with me about that flash issue, but I just noticed after upgrading to 4.0.0.2667 that the problem is no longer there. Yea. That's one point for fixing the problem but minus a point for dropping the ball with me about it.

    The next day I never heard from anyone, but I was able to reinstall again. After installing and upgrading to 4.0.0.2652, I started getting the pop-up window in TT4 that says "Google Adsense Page failed to load for Traffic Travis..." (see Nerik's screen shot above). That's really weird because I don't see what Google Adsense has to do with anything about getting SEO data. Hmmm. Anyway, this problem began for me with v4.0.0.2652, and the latest version 4.0.0.2667 doesn't fix the issue. So for now, the keyword research feature isn't usable for me. Everything else seems to be working for me from what I can tell, but the keyword research function is a crucial part of research. So until that gets fixed, I can't really use TT4. I've opened another ticket for this strange "Google Adsense" message and am waiting to hear from someone.

    But aside from my whining about the bugs (not the application), I really like TT4.

    As a programmer who knows all-too-well what it's like to release a new version of an application and have to deal with a bug invasion, I can understand the situation. Seems no matter how careful you are and how well you beta test, you're going to encounter bugs up front because there are so many different computer configurations and endless permutations in an application's methodology. The key to finding patience while encountering those bugs is with the support team and how well they can communicate what is being done to remedy the problems. What I would like to see is some kind of communication, such as an email or web posting or even a message in TT4, that keeps me up to date on the known issues. That way I can have more patience knowing a solution is on the way instead of wondering how I'm going to deal with the problem.

    I think the thing to keep in mind with TT4 is that it really is a very useful tool with all the features you need for working your websites to page one of Google. I used TT3 and have always depended on it, but TT4 takes it to another level and makes it even easier. For example, with keyword research in TT3, it's a two-step process of doing the keyword search in the Keyword Tools, then laboriously entering each keyword in SEO Analysis. In TT4, the two functions are combined into one where you get all your keyword variations in one window along with monthly search results, average PPC, intitle and inachor information, and difficulty rating. If you double-click on the difficulty rating for a keyword, a window will pop up with information about that keyword formatted exactly how you're used to seeing it in TT3 within SEO Analysis.

    I do like the clean and simple interface of TT4. At first I was a little miffed because the interface is totally different from what I was used to in TT3 and I'd have to re-learn the tool <grumble>. But after I saw what was there, I realized the new learning curve was a small price for the added benefits. There are tutorial videos, like in TT3, but if you're used to TT3, you won't find it difficult to learn TT4 quickly.

    Once the development team works out the bugs, TT4 will be the ideal tool for SEO. If you don't have a lot of patience, though, you might want to prevent chewing off your leg by waiting a couple of weeks to invest in it until they've smoothed out the rough edges. My guess is that Mark's development team is probably feverishly working both hands and feet 24/7 to eradicate the bugs.

    TT looks like it has potential … but it's "so-yesterday" for an app like this to be Windows only. Millions have switched to Mac and many marketers have as well. Mark needs some Adobe Air programmers. Even Microsoft has trouble with Windows software.

    I liked TTV3 so much I bought V4 Pro... OUCH! It's buggier than windows.. I've got the latest upgrade (2679) and it's got the adsence bug (which you can bypass by clearing your details in the setup) but the issue I have found is the results in keyword search are swapped in the Global Monthly and Google US Monthly columns. So the "Global Monthly" colum results are actually the "Google US Monthly" results.. I cross checked this with GKT. The numbers are the same.

      I checked this morning and that Adsense bug disappeared for me. I'm not sure why since I didn't make any changes to my setup. If the problem returns, I'll give your suggestion a try and clear out the setup data.

      You're right about the flip-flop with the global and local counts in 2679. I think the programmer needs to get a good night's sleep.

    I like the TT4 "conceptually" - I think it has some potential to help me do some very quick keyword research...

    The problem is - THE BUGS!

    It is virtually unusable really. I am trying to do SEO rankings for a few of my sites, it downloads the rankings when you create the profile and then it would appear to never do it properly again. One of my sites on Market Samurai (and in Google) has dropped significantly in the last five days for one specific keyword, but my TT4 dashboard happily shows it still ranked at #5. I sent in a ticket the day after it was launched to fix that bug and nothing yet, so the idea that bugs are being resolved in about two days is in this case not accurate.

    I've just downloaded and installed the most recent build #2691 and within 2 minutes I had another "Oops" message and 3 total within the first 10 minutes.

    The problem is the same old chestnut with IM'ers releasing software. They treat everything like a video course or an eBook, strictly adhering to the Jeff Walker PLF. That's not how you build software - there should be no "ta da" moment when you unveil it to the world. This product should have been in the hands of a whole swag of beta testers working out in the wild for the past eight weeks. There is no way, absolutely none, that this software had a professional quality control process behind it.

    I like how Mark Ling approaches his business, he's an ethical sort of guy with a great reputation, but I will never buy a software product from him on launch again.

    I also was an affiliate for the product and stopped promoting it after having used it for a day or so.

      Yeah, I had an affiliate site up and ready for the launch of V4, but held it off until I physically had it running on my own pc to see how good it was for myself and see how it compares to TT V3.0.. Phew. It's still off.. Even though I think the launch bonuses are worth the purchase price, I can't promote a product which is essentially broken and unusable.

      I just upgraded to the latest version and straight away it locked out my IP with google.. didn't even get one keyword search... So I don't know whether they fixed anything.. Can you search elsewhere other than google in keyword search?

    this situation is becoming a bit frustrating for me...

    just updated to the 4.0.0.2722 release...BUT...many of the bugs are still present.

    Only backlinks feature seems now to be fixed (backlinks data now has come), but still persist the problem with backlink data source. Majestic SEO/SEOmoz seems to be ok for many sites...but it seems to be buggy/poor of data for many other...

    I've asked them to implement an user option...so you could choose beetwen backlink data source (Majestic/Seomoz/Yahoo) as you want...

    But the main problem (almost for me) is the KEYWORD RESEARCH: since i've purchased TT4 I couldn't do ONE keyword researc!!! Incredible!!! I'm getting the same message: "Google Adwords page failed to load for Traffic Travis. Please try and access the site in Internet Explorer and try again"...I've tried also to clear my Adwords credentials in program options (as itzallan said) but the bug still persist...

    Arrrgh!!!!!!!!

    Fellow Warrior fourm members. I am operating windows Vista home premium. I simply cannot get this software to work (at all). All I get is a white screen and 'not responding' 95% of the time. When I did get it to respond and input data about my sites I noticed many of the shortcomings others are mentioning.
    The keyword research is all arse about face. The fiugre which it claims is US monthly search figures is in fact the same as the Global monthly searches shown in Keyword tool.

    You cannot pick a country or language to research your keyword stats.

    All of that besides it would just be nice if I COULD GET IT TO WORK AT ALL. I would really like to know if I am the only one experiencing this. When it seems to be about to start I get the 'oops how embarrassing' message about there being a bug. It sends a message and then says 'not responding' and I shut it down and start it up all over again.

    I have tested my internet connection and everything else is working fine including Market Samurai which at this stage I have to say is an infinitely superior product. What say others?

    I must add that I live in the same town as Mark Ling and have met him and he is a very helpful and pleasant fellow and I do not doubt his integrity and honesty one bit and nor should others. I do however question whether this software is ready for the market. I look forward to others' posting their experiences.

      Hi Brent, if you read this thread since the very beginning you can see that there are many other warriors with problems identical to yours or very similar...it's a shame (TT3 is a very good software!) but i have to say that TT4 quality level is lika a beta-version software and we all are involuntary beta testers...

    << Brent: Message to Simon Slade of Affilorama. I would love to give you feedback by using the 'give fedback' button BUT I CANNOT OPEN THE SOFTWARE as it simply never responds and all I get is a white page with 'not responding'. I lodged an email with your support team but surprise surprise, no reply overnight. I wish I had read the warrior forum before buying. Will be waiting until 60 days is nearly up to give you a chance to work on it but at this stage I think you will have a flood of refund requests... <<

    Hi Brent,

    I have said the very same thing two/three times now to support. Makes me think they really do not know what they are dealing with. Still got same problem... only 50 or so days more days to suffer...

    I am no closer to a solution and have not heard from support (although they do say they will get back to you within 72 hours). I have used my last registration code to re load it onto my laptop and so far so good it is working but I am not going to hold my breath. We all have the ability to vote with our feet and request a refund before the 60th day so for those of us who signed up straight away like me put it in your calendar for late June to be sure folks. If this software is not performing credibly by then they will have massive requests for refunds.

      This obviously a great SEO tool, if it worked!, I've been using V4 for 2 days now on and off, so many bugs and features not working makes it virtually unusable

      The intro video said that there would a new release virtually everyday to fix these, that does not seem to be happening

        I've read the thread so far, and I'm not sure if I am finding the answer to what I'm looking for, so I'll just ask. I've been using the free version (v3) for a few days now. I was INCREDIBLY impressed with the speed and fairly impressed with the accuracy of the rank checking software (that's really the item I'm interested in). I've been using the trial version of SEO Rank Tracker (SEO Spyglass), and it's really great and accurate, but takes FOREVER to check ranking in Google, and captcha's are still an issue for me (you can pay to have them solved, but I'm trying to find a way to escape them entirely).

        I used TT once, and I was shocked at how fast it ran. Keywords that took 30 minutes in SEO Rank Tracker took ALMOST ONE MINUTE in TT. I was really impressed, to say the least. But then the next day, I tried it again, and nothing. It took a lot longer to check the ranks, and it returned "0" for all keywords, indicating that nothing was ranked (which is completely untrue). So I figure is has to be being blocked by Google. I know that SEO Rank Tracker uses the Google API, which is why it's so accurate, but also so slow. I sent them feedback, but based on what I'm reading I don't know if I should expect a response, so I'm asking you guys. What does TT use that makes it so much quicker? And is it simply a proxy issue that I'm being blocked by Google? Does this not happen in the pro version of TT (v4)? Yes, I know that there are bug in v4, but those always go away eventually.

          The rank checking and backlinks checking features are the most important for me too.
          I used V3 for a few months and everything worked great but since yesterday it seems the rank checking feature stopped working. The V4 shows the same rankings since I installed it and I'm sure that's not true as There are a few that change a lot, so none of them are working now.

    Absolutely love Traffic Travis. I only use the free version, but it works wonders. For those of you who have a Mac (like me) just partition the disk so you can run all your IM software on the beautiful hardware Apple so graciously created for us .

    But back to the topic...V4 is supposedly a massive knock forward in the software. I back it 110%.

      I bought V4 few days ago but it is useless. The free V3 does 10 times more than the "Pro" V4. Only a quarter of the features in V4 are working, and those are the ones I don't need, or not important.
      I bought it at $77, I see it is now $97, how can they sell that software? Every day I install the "update" but nothing improves. Today it seems it "works" even harder, it just freezes.
      In 2-3 days I'm asking for a refund if nothing improves.

    A small step forward for keywords research: i don't get the error message ("Traffic Travis ran into an error getting the keywords from the page. Please try and access the site in Internet Explorer and try again") anymore...BUT
    1. keywords retrieved seem to be missing of important datas...see pictures below
    2. process hangs...then i've to stop it (7 and more minutes running for 50 keywords) and exit from application

      "Thanks for your email. I have submitted an bug report on your behalf. Our technical team will be looking at it and will release a fix at the soonest possible time. Please check regularly for updates to Traffic Travis v4 as this will make sure you get fixes as soon as we release them."

      Just to know if they read my email or not, I also put a question that can't be answered with a template. But none of my questions got answered, all I got afer 2 days was this template-like email telling me something I already knew.

      It would be great if I could get into the software to update to the latest version but in spite of logging numerous emails with support I am still not able to even get into the software.

      To be fair to them, they did renew my log in code and recommend that I delete the program and reinstall it which I did. For about half a day it worked OK and then was back to 'not responding' every time I open it.

      I cannot recall ever having this kind of frustration with any other piece of software ever and it is very disappointing. I never had any issues with the free version of TT3. I also run Market Samurai and I suppose it has its limitations but at least it works every time I start it up.

            I watched a video that Andrew Hansen sent out to his list and thought wow! this thing looks awesome. What a HUGE disappointent when I actually tried to use the software.

            I think it has great potential but the main thing I wanted it for was to do SEO competition at a glance and with broad match results it's worthless to me.

            I picked up Brad Callen's Niche Finder instead and it looks pretty good so far. I'll need to manually check the competition of some different keywords a little closer to see how the tool stacks up to my manual checks but so far it looks good.

    Guys, I would encourage you all to be a bit patient. I don't know the creators of this software. I bought it and have been having lots of troubles as well. However, just like any software from microsoft or the other big companies, you should expect that there will be some bugs.

    I never can understand why a rich company like Microsoft would create a piece of crap, sell it to us for a premium then have us send them all the bug reports. They turn around and sell us the fix later as a new version!!!! Go figure! That means we should be more compassionate with a follow Warrior here that don't have billions of dollars and the world's top software engineers at their disposal.

    I believe in the end Traffic Travis is going to be awesome. I had to turn on my PC just to try it because I'm on a Mac. I paid $77. I expect to get a great piece of software once they fix all the bugs. In the mean time, I will keep using Market Samurai on my Mac.

      Did you see the sales letter / video for the product? He may not have billions but he has a hell of a lot more than I do. The product shouldn't have been released yet, plain and simple. It's not ready. It doesn't matter what Microsoft does, this thing needed more testing and should not have been released yet.

        Look, I totally understand your point. In the IM community, there are certain standards you guys expect. You are speaking from those standards. I got that. After all, disappointment is when expectations are not met. Having said that, you have a right to vent your frustration. But, I hope you see my point as well.

        Simply try to walk in somebody else's shoes. Because one day you might have to do just that. You might end creating a product or partner with someone. There might be some unexpected bugs. I'm not a coder. But I suspect coding can be really complexed at times.

        It's not easy to have a bunch of peers pounding on you on a forum while you're busting your behind trying to fix the bugs. Well, I'm only assuming that's what is going on.

        What's weird about this is that I don't have any idea who's behind Traffic Travis V4. Hopefully, they are reading and taking notes here. Guys... Listen to your customers. They are the golden goose that lay the eggs for you. They put food on your table! As Ken Blanchard said, "Feedback is the breakfast of champions."

          I have not used TT4 for almost a week now, it's just awful at the moment.
          I only paid $37 to upgrade from 3 to 4 but even so i expected way more from this tool, will wait
          a week or two before asking for refund if things don't get better.

          Anyway after the latest updates Market Samurai almost seems to be back to it's best, even now it's 10x better than TT4...

        Hey, i don't talk about little technical bugs (natural for every new release software)...i'm talking about CORE FEATURES buggy or MISSING!!!
        Honestly, can an SEO work without a working keyword research tool ? Or without complete informations about backlinks analysis ?

        You're right!
        I haven't paid for a BETA software nor paid to be a BETA tester...it's not a Microsoft-like issue...anyway i'm a good will man...i give them another couple of weeks to work on issues...in the meantime i'm going to try other software naturally...

          Honestly, can an SEO work without a working keyword research tool ? Or without complete informations about backlinks analysis ?
          I'm talking about HUGE HOLES in this software...not about fine-tuning bugs!!!
          Exactly, I think is something normal to have technical bugs, but we are not talking about bugs here. The main features of the software are not working. I think even a beta V4 version should be better then the V3, but it's not even half of it.

        For me TT4 is still in beta and never should have been released, V2809 and still really unusable

        I too prefer the old version, much simplier to use

        they need to sort this fast as i will go for a refund, just took me 30 mins to update keywords and nothing changed although a manual type into google showed completly differnt results

        Please fix it

      The ones who said it is worth, they never tested V4, just talked about V3 because they never read the post or were looking for more backlinks. (like you?).

    Not sure that it is correct to compare MS and TT, it seems to me that MS only does keyword research whereas TT does that plus on/offsite SEO analysis for your website (that is assuming TT will be eventually fixed and bug free!)

    TT v4 is really bad and should never have been released, I mean at one point it was showing the traffic numbers for USA traffic to be greater than global traffic, I see that they fixed that in one of the updates, the beta testers must have been really lazy or really stupid, ot their input was ignored

      No Sir, i hate to disagree wit fellow Texan but MS does a lot more than keyword research:
      Keyword Research
      Analyzes Competition
      Rank Tracker
      Content Finder
      Finds Products to promote
      Domain finder/Checker
      Finds Backlink Sources
      Publishes content to your site
      This is just a summary of what MS does.

      TT4 may turn out to be a great tool, but for now is not great and it's not even revolutionary compared to TT3.
      It was rushed out the door still in Beta which has done a great deal of damage, Mark should have made sure it was ready before launching.

      My main gripe is not that it has bugs, all tools have teething problems, it was missing key features that even the free version of TT3 has plus i don't think they added any new features that would make it stand out from the crowd...

    Is TT3 working for everyone with Google? For me it seems to be getting data from the other SE's, but not Google. A friend of mine is experiencing the same thing.

    TT4 is crap at this point. If it doesn't do at least what 3 does and soon I will be getting a refund.

    I think it is more accurate to say TT4 was rushed out the door while still in ALPHA as anyone getting this software to beta test would be as frustrated as we all are. Shocking software development standards - well, no standards actually.

    Mark should give all early adopters (current customers) a free refund to pay for OUR time testing. And we get to keep the software should it ever evolve to something we can actually use.

    Market Samurai gave its users a free extra license (up to 3) to help defray its recent hassle. So pleased that MS is running very well now.

    PS: That reminds me. I guess the TT4 license is for one PC only, right?

      I'm tempted to get a refund on TTv4 and get MS but I've heard the rank tracker part of MS is a bit rubbish. Any thoughts? I need it for my sites, plus some SEO clients. So I'd need to do at least some basic reports right out of MS (I could export to CSV and do the reports in Excel but I'm trying to save as much time as possible.).

        So, after not using TT4 for a week, i fired it up last night hoping to find it humming along...
        I noticed a few features added, that should have been there from day one, but still not complete.
        Tried Keyword research, rank tracker and competition finder, i had to wait 5min plus and still not all fields were populated and other times the wheel just spins no results.

        Had enough so i sent a refund request:
        The reply was cordial, but they want me to tell them what it is about TT4 that has resulted in refund request :confused: Seriously, Have They Not Been Checking The Support Inbox, there must be hundreds of dissatisfied customers?

        MS has had problems recently, but looks like the dev team has sorted 99.9% out. Honestly i have tried MNF, TT and Espionage Software and i keep going back to MS.
        The rank tracker works well for me:
        1. You add as many URL's Keywords as you want
        2. Shows your pos in Google, Yahoo, Bing
        3. Gives you graphical out put for your position, backlinks, pagerank
        4. You can export results as .csv
        5. You can update from 10 - 1000 pos in Google

        Give it a try, it's at worst going to be better than TT4...

          I really think there is some communication problem between their support and the development team ... and maybe, in general, are underestimating the situation...

          I've tried MS some weeks ago (maybe when the product still had some trouble) but rank tracker and keyword research features didn't work correctly for me...

          By the way, i loved some *working* features (they worked until few weeks ago) of TT3 like SEO competition analysis and on-page factors analysis...but now they are only buggy features on TT4...i continue to repeat myself it's a shame and can't understand why a clever guy like Mark Ling permitted this "massacre"...

            I sent a refund request yesterday enumerating the things that do not work in it, they sent me a message telling me to update it and if I still want a refund to ask for it(losing my license), I did but it's almost the same so wrote back asking for the refund.
            I also gave them a link to this thread, mentioning somebody's idea that we should get a refund and keep our license for our time spent testing it, submitting bugs or writing emails to them.:p

              You're right...and this is my idea for Mark Ling: offer to all these guys (involuntary beta testers of TT4!) a PRO TT3 FREE license (so we can save and print our report) to everyone who purchased TT4 during the first week (promo week) as refund of the long time spent in testing and reporting bugs...

              I think it would be great for your and Affilorama brand image...

                I don't think that's gonna happen. But a message from Mark apologizing to his customers would have been appreciated. I really thought Mark was different from the rest, but now...?

                Anyway just put in a refund request with Clickbank, i'm tired of messing around with TT support, the sooner i can put this fiasco behind me the better.
                To those who are going to wait it out, good luck and i hope your patience is rewarded...

    For what it's worth, I just upgraded to the latest version, v2827 , this morning, tried a few simple tasks, it uses 99% of the CPU and locks up the whole PC, had to quit TT just to be able to send an email, not looking good, customer support replied to me, said all problems will be fixed in 2 weeks... if you believe that you will believe anything, looks like major software development problems to me if they are prediciting 2 weeks!

    I can't really afford to waste any more time on this thing, I feel like I paid $77 to be a beta tester!

      I requested my refund from clickbank a couple of days ago and it just came in this morning. I didn't bother sending a request through the vendor, I just went straight to clickbank.

      This is the first time I have ever requested a refund from clickbank but the product simply doesn't work they way it's supposed to. Like others have said, I think using version 4 of this program was worse than being a beta tester. I've beta tested a few programs before and although there may be a few bugs here and there the core functions of the software have always worked a lot better than with this software.

      I've got it and there are some bugs they are working through but I think on balance it is going to be a worthwhile product to own.There are some functions that do not seem to have come across from TT3 but in time I am sure they'll address this too. I will not be asking for any refund as they have been good at sorting out issues thus far. Mark Ling is a nice guy from my home town with lots of integrity so if he can see to it that the product is fully functional and great value for money he will. Cheers

    Video title is "Traffic Travis 4 - Traffic Travis SEO Competition Analysis - RANK EASILY!" but the video shows the Traffic Travis 3 feature!!!!!

    Why?!?!?? I suppose to know...the answer is becouse the TT4 SEO competition analysis still doesn't work correctly...and it's also is very poor of datas compared to TT3 feature... :rolleyes:

    Hey guys,

    I'm really sorry and regret the bugs in Traffic Travis v4. My team has worked extremely hard on this software product and we did beta test it with 50 beta testers before launch.

    It has been a very stressful time and we are all working through this as efficiently as we possibly can. I do understand it must be incredibly frustrating for all you guys out there and we aren't just committed to resolving the issues, we're committed to continuing to update and improve the product on a full time basis for a long time (several years).

    My programmers are working extremely diligently on resolving any and all bugs that have arisen since launch, and I really thought they would have been resolved sooner, however some issues have been trickier than we first thought.

    Some people have suggested slapping in code from version 3, but it's not a simple as that as this is a new software product coded totally differently from scratch. Also, the moment the bugs are all resolved it is a much much better product than version 3.

    We are committed to not only resolving all of the bugs, we are committed to continuing to update this software in the future as Traffic Travis is not a 'launch and forget' product. It is a software product that is worked on all year round by our full time TT developer, plus several of our other developers work on Traffic Travis on a regular part time basis.

    Right now we are making daily updates, soon all the bugs will have been resolved, unfortunately for us (and for many of you) this has not come soon enough, and my team and I are really sorry about this.

    For now our answer is no to the request to give version 3 pro and/or v4pro to anyone who requests a refund because the last thing we want is to receive complaints from faithful TTv4 customers due to rewarding those who refunded. I totally understand the merit in the idea, however it seems to penalize those who stick with us.

    We want to reward all people who stick with the Traffic Travis v4 product the best way we know how and that's by fixing any and all bugs, and then overdelivering on the quality and frequency of our updates in the future.

    Kind regards,
    Mark Ling

      Here's my idea: Don't simply give a 3Pro license to those who request a refund. Give ALL launch-week adopters a 3Pro license good for 60 days. This would cost your company nothing as far as I can see, and would probably keep a lot of people from getting impatient and jumping ship, as several posters to this thread have already done. If TT4 Pro isn't better than TT3 Pro by the time 60 days are up, I would say nobody needs to be using it anyway.

      As you and your team know better than anybody, the launch of TT4 has been an epic fiasco. A kind word of apology is nice, but something tangible to compensate the users would be better.

      Hey Mark,

      I think that's what most of us needed. An apology is good enough for some of us. Constant and candid communication is the mark of great leaders. I liken it to flying. I feel so at ease when the pilot keeps reassuring the passengers that this is a bump that will last 10 minutes. The rest of the flight will be smooth.

      For a longtime I didn't think we were going to here from you. As I stated in my previous post, I totally understand how frustrating it can be for you and those that are complaining. As for myself, I remain convinced that in the end you will have a fantastic software. Hopefully it will be so amazing that you will be able redeem yourself in a BIG way. I can't wait!

    I will be emailing all traffic travis users an apology soon, probably tomorrow or the next day, and will outline what has been happening with updates. I'm extremely disappointed in myself for letting this happen in the first place.

    After the rigerous beta testing we were extremely excited about the product and I was enjoying using it personally and I thought that if any bugs arose once this got launched to the general public, that they would be resolved within 48 hours of them getting discovered. However as you all know, it has not worked out that way and I take full responsibility for that. I've been learning some hard lessons from this.

    We want to reward all people who stick with the Traffic Travis v4 product the best way we know how and that's by fixing any and all bugs as quickly as we possibly can, and then long-term by overdelivering on the quality and frequency of our updates in the future.

        Exactly. The product has still not even passed alpha stage yet, never mind beta. The so-called beta testers could not have run TT4 long enough to test anything.

        Mark needs to fire whoever built the software and get in someone who knows what they are doing.

          I understand, whether you believe us or not is not the issue, from here it's up to us to fix everything and go forward with fantastic updates and so forth long term.

          The beta testers were the 50 highest users of TTv3, so there were as qualified as anyone I could have thought of.

          I know you saw problems within 2 mins of using it, but several problems that occurred since launch were not present in the software prior to launch. It's incredibly frustrating from our end.

          Someone suggested firing the programmers, but these are the same guys who put together TTv3 which turned out to be fantastic, and ultimately they have not become bad programmers overnight, they will resolve everything. I am the one to blame for not ensuring we did an internal launch before a more public launch, and also for not adding on adequate time after the earthquake in christchurch which caused us to move offices etc.

          At the end of the day it's my fault, and I am doing everything in my power to rectify things as soon as possible.

      Thank you for reporting...

      I invite anyone who might be interested in the fate of TT4 to read the roadmap of the project at this address: Traffic Travis v4 Roadmap and leave their comments / suggestions always on this page (as I already done) so that collect publicly available on their website all requests / technical comments ONLY about roadmap document.

      Of course, I invite everyone to do so in a responsible and respectful way... that page is NOT obviously a support page where you can leave nasty comments or complaints!

      I hope this could help their project and WE ALL in getting a better Traffic Travis 4...

      I'm just as frustrated about all the irritating bugs in TT4 as everyone else, and I know how easy it is to want to rake Mark and his team across hot coals right now. I get that. But if you've bought other products from Mark in the past, you know he will give you a lot of valuable and trustworthy information and is one of those guys who's sincere about helping people succeed. As we all know, there aren't a lot of guys out there like that who you can put a lot of trust in. He's helped a lot of people and given a lot, and I'd venture to guess he seldom lost his patience when someone made a mistake (although his team might have a different story right about now)

      The fact that he came up with such a valuable tool and not just kept it to himself says something. Yeah, you can say it was to make a profit, and who wouldn't want that, but I think it reflects Mark's interest in sharing his knowledge to help others succeed; and the tool, despite the pesky gremlins, does encapsulate a lot of knowledge. So let's not nail him to a stake because of a mistake. I think you can count on Mark and his team getting this tool up to becoming one of the finest tools out there. I see its potential and I know Mark's one of those guys that will follow through on his word to make it worthwhile to be patient. And if patience is just too painful, there's always the refund route.

      I don't know Mark personally, and I'm not getting anything out of jumping to his defense, but I do trust him and what he says - and I don't easily hand that out too often. I think guys like him are worth standing up for.

    I upgraded a week ago and have numerous issues getting information.. I received a email that says they are aware of these problems and will be correcting them.

    The list of issues that need fixed is pretty extensive, so for the time being, I think I will remain with V3.

    There was a total of 27 areas in which they said needed updated or corrected. As in the past, I am sure these will all be fixed in time and V4 will be very much worth it. If there's one thing I know about the people behind TT is that they do care about their customers, therefore I will patiently await the fixes..

      Hey, we tried to be clear on that. We weren't saying there were 27 bugs, most of the items listed on our development roadmap that we released are actually product improvement requests being fulfilled. We improve the software ongoing, we don't stop doing this, so we will always be adding to our to-do list.

      Our roadmap is here for those of you who are interested: Traffic Travis v4 Roadmap

      For those who want to see the apology that we mailed to the customers, you can check that out here: Our apology

          The domain age feature seems to be broken as well. Same with MS. I'm guessing that both use Archive.org, which has recently been going through some updates.

            Traffic Travis launch week concluded just over a week ago making it about 2 and a half weeks since launch day. We've been doing our very best to resolve the issues. I am very suprised to hear about your bug, if you haven't already, please submit the bug report as there's no way a start up crash should be occuring. Our developers will be right on it.

            It does work fine on my computer, though I realize that is no consolation to you, it just tells me it must be an easy bug for my developers to fix, if you submit the bug report, please tell them your operating system.

            Also, as per http://www.traffictravis.com/roadmap, we have more product improvements we are planning on making with daily updates planned over the next few weeks. As I mentioned before, Traffic Travis will continue to be updated long term, this isn't a launch and forget project.

            I have passed on your message about it crashing to the programmers so that they know about it. We will get it resolved, though I am very sorry that a bug-free Traffic Travis has not come as soon as I or any one of us would have liked.

              Yeah thanks again Mark! Since the last download it does seem to be getting better and there has not been a crash on my side since. I was keeping up with your staff as well and they have done a good job on the customer service side.

              I know that you deliver a good product as I am a AB2.0 member too. So I will stick with you on this one and hope that it becomes one of the better tools out there.

    Hi Julia,

    if you read entirely this thread or others on this forum you can see there are many people saying "Yes, it is worth" and other many saying "No, don't choose it! Try Market Samurai or something else...".

    I can tell my personal experience about it: I use TT (V3) since long time and I'm very very happy...but the free version has many limitations so I decided to buy TT V4. As already discussed (also with Mark Ling and Simon Slade on this thread), TT 4 had several problems due to (this is my final opinion) poor beta tests before launch.

    Now their staff is working hard on fixing them and product is getting better day by day...I think it'll take another 2-3 weeks, then we're going to have a very very nice SEO tool! (I've already seen some good improvements in these days...)

    I can tell you that I could ask them for refund on the earliest days after purchase becouse the software was really buggy, but now I see that my trust in TT team is getting repaid...so I'm going on sure to have more satisfaction in next weeks..

    There's no TT4 trial or free edition, but you can try TT3 and see how good it is by yourself...and I think that TT4 should be surely better at the end...

    Finally, as Mark Ling, sayd this is a "lifetime project" for TT/Affilorama team...so it would be better ever and ever in the future, I'm sure of it!

    PS
    As you can read on this thread (I was quite mad with their support for many bugs I found during last weeks), be sure I'm not affiliated in any way with them and I'm not interested in sponsor them in any way...I'm only an SEO happy to work with TT3 and searching for something better...I only hope TT4 is the definitive solution for me!!!

    Cheers,
    Riccardo

    Seems like a lot of TT4 is now working, one issue for me is that the only documentation that comes with it are 5 pretty short videos which are now out of date in many areas, there are a lot sections which are not explained very well

    Can anyone using TT4 explain why for a certain keyword the "Competition" tab says High 93% yet the "SEO Difficulty" tab says Relatively easy

    Then for another one with Low 12% for compedtition gets a "medium difficulty" rating

    it does not make any sense to me, what am I missing, there does not seem to be any corrolation between them

    I'm not quite sure what the "competition" tab is displaying, keywords with high SERPS numbers are given a low competition number, and visa versa, so which column do you use to determine if it is a good keyword or not, competition or seo difficulty, I'm begining to feel that this tool is more confusing that helpful

    Just updated to 4.0.0.3059

    There still are 2 BIG CORE BUGS not solved...I think these should be #1 PRIORITY:

    1-Keyword research feature doesn't display search volumes (global and local) larger than 999 and competition percentage (any value) due to a digits format problem with NOT-ENGLISH located Windows version (eg.: Italian, French, German, Spanish, etc.). This issue has been confirmed by the support team but it's unsolved at the moment...

    2-Backlinks analysis is still not reporting all the backlinks mentioned in the total count (eg.: page has > 500 backlinks as correctly reported in "My Site" section, but when I try to analyze that page backlinks in "SEO - Backlinks" tab, only 100 records are displayed). I can not see any trace of this problem in the roadmap...

    I've reported these issue 5 days ago (#1) and several weeks ago (#2) but nothing has changed since there...

    Hope they're understanding the situation...

      @Nerik

      Just saw your post here. As we already told you from your email to our support department:

      Regarding your problem involving the traffic travis keyword research tool not working with Windows Italian version - This already is a priority that is being worked on, and while you may see some minor bugs getting resolved sooner, that is not because they were prioritized higher, it is because they have different developers working on them and they managed to fix them sooner. We have our top developer working on the operating systems bug for you and others using Windows Italian (and other foreign operating systems), it's his top priority and I have no way of making him move any faster on it as he is doing his best.

      Regarding the backlinks records, we have another programmer working on that so people can have the option of selecting yahoo backlinks vs seomoz backlinks, plus some other functionality improvments on that section, and he anticipates that will be completed during the coming week.

    Sorry Mr Ling but the tool is still full of bugs, I just upgraded to TT4 V 3059 and the basic keyword research tool is not working correctly

    I entered 1 keyword and after a few minutes I get a popup message saying "No top 10 Google results found for this keyword", I get no keywords and a message that does not make any sense, seems like the tool thinks I'm in seo ranking mode whereas I'm in the research keyword tab
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[3965962].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author markling
      Hey Ken, the developers tell me that keyword issue is a bug that is affecting 10% of users (not all users) and they have a fix that should be rolled out on monday. I'm really sorry about the delay, and it is stressful for us too as we are doing everything we can to remedy everything.

      I think to say Traffic Travis is currently "full of bugs" is harsh, though I understand your frustration and we are doing our best to resolve everything as quickly as we can. I think that it's getting pretty close to being bug-free though some major bugs are still present for a small percentage of users, while minor bugs are present for all users (most won't be noticed, but we are fixing). We are also working on several product improvements, and will add to the development roadmap after we've completed the ones on the list below:

      http://www.traffictravis.com/roadmap

      The competition and difficulty ratings are different things based on different calculations. The seo difficulty is much more accurate but takes significantly longer to calculate due to the amount of data being collected and processed.

        I'm trying to use TT v3.3.14 free but I'm getting wildly different results for the same keywords on different days for the on page seo analysis of competition.

        I've picked up Market Samurai to get me through this rough patch with TT.

        I'm mainly interested in the seo analysis bits of TT.

        Any improvements updates in the last couple days for TTv 4.

          Hi Mark,

          I can see your team are getting through those bugs nicely, that's good to hear.

          It's also good to hear that we'll be able to choose Yahoo as a source of backlinks (as quite often TT4 using SEOMOZ doesn't show any backlinks at all in the detail tab..at least for most of my sites) but I personally think it would really benefit from having an option to show backlinks from SEO Majestic for the SEO-Backlinks tab.

          I think TT4 is getting the backlink summary (I mean on the Dashboard tab...Total Backlinks, Unique IPs etc) from Majestic, right? But it doesn't use Majestic for the SEO-Backlink page.

          Why's that? Is it a cost issue or something else?

          With that being said, I like TT4 a lot better than at release. It's definitely getting there.

          Cheers from Wellington NZ.

            Hey, we do use Majestic for the dashboard tab numbers, total backlinks, etc as you mentioned above, however due to the huge monthly cost of this particular data (Majestic charges us over $8000 usd/month, plus further costs when you go over a certain usage limit), we decided not to use their backlinks sources. Most places that I know of that use Majestic charge a significantly high monthly fee, whereas Traffic Travis is a one time price.

            We're adding Yahoo backlinks as another option as a backlink source (to go with SEOMoz backlink source) in the next 24 hours.

              Hi

              I have used TTPro. I also have MS. There have been recent problems with MS so I am thinking of upgrading to TT4. Please can anyone tell me how TT4 is working at the moment and whether most of the bugs have been sorted out yet?

              Many thanks

                Sorry, two months after the launch fiasco, I'm finding the program as bad as ever, or worse.

                Things seem to get fixed in one release, then break again in another. Search ranking seemed to be working at first, but now it's handing me data that I can plainly see is all wrong, just by checking the search engines manually on a few keywords.

                Backlink checking hasn't worked completely for me from the start - a site of mine with over 700 backlinks in Yahoo has NONE in Traffic Travis 4. About a month ago, they mentioned that backlink source would be selectable in the next release. If this feature is there I certainly can't find it.

                TT4 crashes so much I can't keep count, and not just when I'm using it. Sometimes during the day it will suddenly pop up with "Sorry, no results for that query" and crash.

                What really annoys me is that the company has, in my view, done nothing of substance to compensate early adopters who got burned. Earlier in this thread I suggested a free, temporary 3Pro license to keep folks happy until 4Pro was really ready. This idea was not addressed. Now I'm not sure it would have done any good anyway. If TT4 is still totally broken after almost 60 days, it may be a long time before it actually works.

                Barring something extraordinary happening in the next day or so, I'm getting a refund.

      I just checked with one of the Traffic Travis developers, and he said "with v3 of tt you can't do an exact match there, however it wont take much to do so I have added it to the list for ttv3 things to do soon"

    Hello, I'm still new here but I have been not that into replying to most of the posts but I do have some questions regarding Traffic Travis 4.

    I have the trial version installed on my computer. How much does it cost for me to upgrade it to version 4 and how much does it cost? Is it a one time payment or a monthly subscription?

    Also, Is the support for this software any good? I sent an email to them and was hoping for a quick reply.

    Thanks in advance!

      Hey, you can download it direct from here (you'll need your registration key):

      http://www.traffictravis.com/softwar..._travis_v4.exe

      It will automatically update once you install this version. I think the very first version the updates might not have been working correctly, so install this to fix things.

        Hi Mark

        I know that TT4 unfortuately had a lot of bugs when it first came out. I was reading the blogs. Also I read the TT4 roadmap posted for keeping us up to date about bug fixing and adding new features.

        I see now that a lot of the things that were being complained about being missing from TT4 and not working have been sorted out now. Also I see new stuff is coming out soon.

        So I bought TT4 the other day and it seems to me to be pretty good. I was using TT3 for a couple of years now and TT4 is definitely a lot better. Plus from the looks of the roadmap it can only get better.

          I have TT4 and I was one who had all kinds of problems when it was first issued. Most of the bugs seem to have been sorted. I do however have a question for Mark Ling and his co -owners. Many of the really cool SEO features if TT3 (even the free version) are not carried across into TT4. I am referring to things like being able to update your rankings at any time or search a phrase to see where your site ranks, being able to fine your search down to google in a particular country. I alos note that TT4 seems not to be getting google data because it maintains my sites have dropped out of the top 100 in google when I know they have not. Is there a bug fix coming for this and why oh why did so many of the popular features of TT3 get dropped?

      I was using TT3 free version until it started crapping out on me.
      I contacted the support desk and got this.

      "Thanks for your email.

      Traffic Travis version 3 was pulling its data from the old Google tool. Google have since updated there data a few months ago. We have temporarily fallen back to our in-house keyword database but we are currently working out a reliable source for keyword search counts to use with Traffic Travis version 3.


      However, we are using a different keyword source on our latest paid Traffic Travis version (TTV4). You'll find that the data on TTV4 is consistent with Google.


      We apologize for the data inconsistencies on the free version. We are spending more time and effort into making this section better.


      Please let me know if you have any further questions."


      I use the G KW tool to get search volumes and then TT3 for comp analysis.
      I bought TT4 yesterday based on the above information.

      If TT4 was working the way it is supposed to it would be an awesome tool.
      It's not.
      The research/keyword tool is not working.
      It returns a no data found on input keywords and then prompts to restart.
      As it stands now TT4 for the way I use it is pretty much useless.

    I don't know what happened, but after the past 2 updates, TT v4 has become essentially useless for me.

    Rankings are just all wrong, not off a little, completely wrong. Not only that, keyword rankings are showing for domains that aren't in the project! For instance, the list of keywords for domain1.com are showing rankings and the best page for domain2.com. It had been working well, it just all went to hell 2 updates ago.

    I've submitted a ticket and I hope to see improvements.

      I sympathise with you on this one. Google ranking seem to have disappeared altogether when I know my sites are still performing well in Google. Presumably this is a big they will get fixed. I have noticed a similar thing in Market Samurai which I also use for some research functions. Over all however, the integrity of TT4 is hugely better than when first launched. I could not get it to work for me at all for the first two weeks and had to install it three or four times.

        It's frustrating. I'm being patient, but I need to get this information. Not only that, but when info is suspect in one area, the rest comes into question.

        For a while, some project didn't show an backlinks at all. That seems to be fixed. The Alexa rankings don't seem to update, but that's a small matter. I'm just hoping for a good update to come soon.

    I've been trying to do keyword analysis with TT for 4 days now without any success.
    When I use the research keyword function it can't pick up any data. Then it prompts for a restart. After restart I get the same result. Nothing.
    No response from support after 48 hours. I guess the support is broken as well because they promise 24 hour response time.
    I'm going to hang on to it for at least it's warranty period and see how things progress.
    I do think it will be a valuable research tool once it's working for me but for now it's going to be Market Samurai.

    I haven't been able to do keyword research for the past 24 hours - even with starting and restarting the software (and my computer just to make sure I've tried everything.)

    As for rank results - totally off when compared to another tool I use and actual listings in search engines. I will be using a back up keyword tool do compare what data I have just as a sanity check.

    Sometimes the back links show - and the link finder too - just not consistently.

    Seems it's "Ready - Shoot - Aim" with these developers. I'm on hold on a few fronts with some identified back ups in place - but boy, what a waste of time and energy waiting on these guys to get their ducks in a row. At this point - I don't trust the data...perhaps next year they will have it figured out.

      This is what I got from their customer service about the research module, must admit that the response time was really fast.

      Hi,

      I'm sorry for the inconvenience. The keyword ranking and research tools are currently broken. Our developers are fixing this and will release an update very soon.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.
      Well it's been over a month now and I still cannot use tt4 to its full potential. I still have full confidence in Mark and his team that they will get this thing going. Just very frustrating, as I wanted to use this solely instead of using my free-trial of MS.

      This tool will be great I just wish I would have waited awhile before purchasing straight away. Even though I paid much less than the normal price it still sucks shelling out money for a broken product. Lesson Learned!!!

        I hear you Bizbop - this morning I downloaded an update with a note saying the research function had been fixed.

        I just had a chance to fire it up to do some research and I see data!

        I felt like I crashed into a concrete wall these past few days while daylight was burnin' and I was scrambling.

        I'm way off task with my projects and need to regroup at this point. Been a bit of a bummer. I too am holding out for a happy ending with TT.....but am still reviewing alternatives that look promising. That was a huge lesson - always have a back up...

          Yes - I have data.

          But, then I noticed....

          All the "SEO difficulty" results came back as "easy".

          You can imagine my initial glee...

          Until I checked a key word with a 95% keyword competition and a PPC value of over $9.00...that's "easy" too...

          They're all easy.

          So I tried another set of words....they're all easy too.

    I've had TT V4 for 6 weeks now, got to say it has been a big disappointment, it was highly recomended by a respected super affiliate who had been using V3

    I have not been able to use it for any serious work, things that work in one release are broken in the next

    Yes I'm using the latest release, V3178, now the SEO Difficulty rating for every keyword is given as Easy, the dashboard does not list keywords for which I know I'm #2 or #3 etc, the list goes on, plus there seems to be some problems with it locking up my PC from time to time

    To cap it off the documentation for the product is totally out of date and inadequate, are we supposed to figure out for ourselves what all the column headers really mean and how to apply them?

    I'm reaching for the refund button unless something happens soon, potentially a great product but not right now, will check it out again in maybe 6 months!

      I've been pretty much staying out of this, since when it works I like the tool (and I use TT3 a lot), and I'm assuming it will come around. I most often use it to keep track of my rankings, and that function has been totally useless for the last week or two.

      I have to say that if you are thinking of buying, wait and watch this thread, since I'd guess that if you buy and are disappointed Mark might lose a customer for good.

      If anyone knows, though, I would like to know just exactly how the traffic potential metric is calculated. That looks like it would be handy information if it actually meant anything.

      I wish the crew luck on getting this sorted.

      I foreget to read all reviews here before I purchased and I purchased two days ago (TT V4.0.0.3182), VERY disappointed. Lot of basic search and SEO functions are not even working. For example, I search the keywords and the "InAnchor" and "InTitle" field are all blank, after I click "SEO difficulty" caculated result, it suppose bring up the detail top 10 ranking pages of your competitor website info, but after double click, nothing happen. Without SEO details page, this tools is useless. and problems keep on.......
      Can't understand, how can they made a free version so good and the TT V4 pro version so unuseable. How can they even pass the software testing and QA phase? After all these people complain here and still can't have the major search function working I think TT are putting their "PAST Good" reputation on risk. IMHO they are going to lose whole bunch of past and future customers for sure if they don't fix the problem soon.
      Hurry up, find out the solutions FAST before it too late....

        I got a refund on TTv4 but to be fair, I've found their support very prompt and they've been fixing bugs extremely quickly.

        The only reason why I asked for a refund is I found their search engine ranking tools and competitor analysis tools were not as good as other individual programs (CuteRank and Market Samurai).

        But if you have a limited budget then I think Traffic Travis v4 is a good choice.

        Hope that helps?

      Hi Ken,

      unfotunately not...not all bugs are fixed!!! :rolleyes:

      - Keyword research is still broken
      - Keyword ranking seems to still have some problems
      - Some minor bugs/poorly features still exists

      Anyway I looked at their roadmap page (Traffic Travis v4 Roadmap) right now and I found release dates updated and a comment from Nick Fauchelle (one of their main developers) too that talks about some problems they had due the recent hearthquake in their city...

      Let them work...I know the software is still buggy and hangs sometimes but I'm still having trust in them...
