Does anyone out there still us MS?

What Keyword research tool would you recommend for researching keywords to plug into Media buying campaigns and PPC campaigns?

Any recommended software that you use for this purpose?

    Sure you can still use it. There is also a similar tool called long tail pro which works fine as well. However, MS data comes from Google, and is in some cases old and not happening in 'real time' so in today's instant world, you may be missing out on trends/stories/keywords that are happening right now and on different platforms like FaceB or Twitter

    Market Samurai is still as good as anything. But you have to realize that no matter what you use Google is going to "decide" what it thinks you mean by the keywords you submit. Actually from a paid standpoint you will still be ok. The problem is that google will decide what someone means when they type a keyword into the search bar. So you should know that as you prepare your own keyword list. Certain exact matches may not yield the same types of results they as they used to.

        I also think that Longtail pro is working better than MS... But everybody has his own favorite program!

    It was never any good for PPC.

    Not any good for SEO either.

        For PPC, you don't really need other tools. Market Samurai pulls all its data from Google anyhow. MS just does it at a freaking snail's pace. That software is a total piece of junk.

        I use UberSuggest sometimes for keyword ideas. I also use a lot of offline materials depending on the market. I'll go to a bookstore and check out the magazine rack for keyword and ad ideas. I'll grab flyers from local businesses that deal in that niche if possible.

        Stuff like that.

    I unfortunately own 6 licenses for MS and would love to throw them all in the garbage. There's much better ways to map high commercial value longtail keywords than using that slow, wasteful piece of crap.

    Years ago it was okay and easy to teach to my staff - but that time has long since passed. By years ago, I don't mean 2012 - I mean 2009'ish.

    If you are concentrating on PPC, then you are just as well using Google Keyword Planner as any other tool.

    If it is for PPC, I don't see why would you use MS when there is Keyword Planner given to you for free.

    Hey guys,

    Tom from Noble Samurai here

    We understand that Market Samurai has become quite slow of late, so we're looking into making Market Samurai fast again!

    We've recently made some changes which have improved the speed, so if you haven't tried it in the last month or two I'd urge you to give it a go - compared to 6 months ago it's taking half the time it used to take to collect the Keyword Research data.

    But we're not stopping there, we in the support team are looking in every nook and cranny to find speed improvements as it's one of the biggest complaints about Market Samurai - we want to make it faster just as much as you guys!

    Anyway, just wanted to drop by and let you know that we are listening to what you guys want

    Cheers,
    Tom

      Thanks for the info. That's good to hear, maybe I'll try it again. It was indeed so slow and frustrating that I gave up on it. I also found the UI confusing, but gotta check the newest version to see if you have changed it.

      Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
      Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

      What's your excuse?
