1. Is Market Samurai still a reliable tool that can help you find niches and assess competitions?
2. In the SEO competition module which are the factors that I should be concerned about?
If competition websites for a particular keyword has high PR, but low backlink numbers and bad on-page optimization (mostly no's) is it worth it to take on the challenge?
Before any of you say anything, I did go over to Market Samurai's website and watched the tutorial videos they have on the competition module. The only thing they do there is compare 3 different matrices (all boxes checked) and saying which is better than the other. They didn't actually give any guidelines towards what would be an easy competition to beat.
Tell me your experiences and what you usually aim for. I'm a newbie, who happens to hate the 'get the backlink' process, so go easy on me
