I am either getting false results, or no results at all. I am started to get really frustrated with Market Samurai. It is simply not reliable anymore.

Anyone else having the same issues?

    Hi stodog77,

    I think you are going to see the same thing happen to a lot of backlink checking services. I heard that Yahoo is shutting down their Site Explorer service that many of those services rely on. It's not surprising since Yahoo seems to be getting completely out of all search engine services. Their search is currently powered by Bing, so their own crawlers have become redundant.

      Ya, I'm not as concerned about the backlinks. More the rankings in Google. Yahoo and Bing seem ot be fine, but Google is completely erratic. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

    I'm having similar issues. Sometimes rank tracker works, other times not. Seems to work better when you're fetching the ranking of 1 keyword vs. Multiple ones. I've emailed them and will share result.

    Yea i'd say its about 50/50 whether rank tracker works or not. Its been that way for awhile. I am not sure why its so hard for Market Samurai to get Rank Tracker working consistently.

    I have had issues with rank tracker recently, but I have found that most of my issues are fixed by updates (it seems they are updating rank tracker daily). I do find that if I update my domain and then recheck the rankings a second time they are more accurate the second time around.

    I am sure they have to do constant tweaking to keep the rank tracker working as Google probably does not like the search load put on their servers from the rank check.

    I also wonder if the use of proxies causes the jump, since google rankings can be influenced and different based on regional location, personal search history and other factors.

    Ya rank tracking has been a bit weird for the past month... For a year I never had issues but it seems to constantly need to be resolved with quick fixes every few days to remain accurate and working, not sure why but when it's busted I wait a few days and usually they have a fix out... Annoying but at least it gets fixed

      Same problem here. Worked fine for one domain but no results for another.
