    Then JUST DO IT.

    Its fantastic. For 12 days I am taking advantage of the free trial, having watched the first couple of video tutorials, and snapping up dozens of great keywords for hubpages to last me at least 3 months of publishing. If I find the time over the next few days, then maybe even 6 months (not all on this account of course wink )

    If you have not taken the free trial, have not watched at least the first couple of videos, then never ever come onto this forum and ask why you are not earning.

    I believe that this free trial alone will double my earnings over the next 6 months, and if it does I am going to subscribe for the full whack.

      you can get a 30 day via the 30dc site...probably other places as well.

      You can also get a trial for every computer you own.

      Its worth buying though.

        Are there any other bits of software which can rival this Sunforged? Or is this truly the best out there?

          I prefer Micro Niche Finder - cleaner, faster but not necessarily better.

          The AIR platform that MS runs on is a system hog and many with older laptops complain about performance.

      I told you Ryan! It's a great product! I love the SEO competition filter so you can see internal and external backlinks. Market Samurai is awesome!

    If You sign up for The Challenge( www . challenge . co), You get 64 days trial.Keyword elite is quite good, but Market Samurai is definitely better.

    The Keyword Academy has been very good for me...I am working hard at their lessons.

    I tried both, and picked Micro Niche finder. Market Samurai has some pretty good features, but I got the feeling that they increased the amount of stuff you needed to do, simply to allow people who were new to the game to be able to do it.

    I would definitely suggest trying out both before settling!

      My main interest right now is the Rank Checker. I'm a bit surprised to hear them talking about checking your rank every few DAYS to see how your promotional efforts are doing.  Seems to me that just encourages the obsessive over-checking that's a temptation for newbies anyway - surely it takes more than a few days to see results?

    I think if you signup for the ED Dale 30 day challenge, your 12 day full access trial automatically gets extended to 100 days.  I still have 63 days remaining.  Anyone wanting to signup for the free 100 days trial can check my hub on free SEO tools and website promotion software, though I am not sure if they are still allowing the extension of the trial as the challenge is halfway through.

      Yippee, the longer trial link still works!

    I'm trying it out. I got a little frustrated when I went to compare the results of a keyword in MS's SEO Traffic report with the Wordtracker SEO plugin, just as a comparison, and got wildly different results.

    I would hazard a guess that a $150 product might be more reliable than a free browser plug-in that only has one function.

    By the way, do you guys use the standard filter parameters (for example PBR of 15%, SEO Traffic minimum of 80, SEOC 30,000 SEOV=30?) I'm wondering if that should be tweaked at all for better results.

      I use the google keyword tool set on exact to find good keywords then enter them into Market Samurai and check that keyword phrase out for SEO competition.  It gives you all the external backlinks and internal ones. You have to use the little drop down thingy to check internal or all links.  The top 10 are the most important. I don't worry about how many pages that show up for the keyword phrase... just the first 10. If it's low on internal and external then I go for it.  I also use Market Samurai to track my articles and where they rank. It will show you if they move up and down if you refresh every day. It also displays how many backlinks are present for each article.

      I don't use the keyword finder on Market Samurai because it is the same thing as Google's and I find Google's easier to use. I use the previous tool though...not the new one that came out recently. I hate the new one.

      I've been seeing a lot of those MFA (Made for Adsense) sites. Those are another good indicator to get to page 1 in a short time. Those sites have already researched and ranked for one of the top ten. Just remember, we have the internal linking factor here to help us... those MFA ones don't. because they are often only a page or a few pages.  Just build backlinks and vary the anchor text and you should rank good.

      Personally I use a PBR 30% minimum. I learnt that after picking a bad keyword phrase. What happened was I picked a keyword say "Three letter word". The stats were good and thought it would be easy to rank for it. It was but the traffic was not there. I checked semrush.com and saw 90% of the traffic was for "letter three word" not "three letter word". Lesson? Always crosscheck a keyword's traffic with other sources.

    Since I am feeling helpful today (and generous) hehe, here is a site that gives you 15 backlinks for free a day... it's automatic so you won't have to go and manually do it for each article. You can choose to do schedule them all in one day, 15 or spread them out over 45 days. I use the 45 day one. It drops one every few days so it appears natural to Google. Here it is: http://www.imautomator.com/ Just do the free version. I can't speak if the paid one is worth it or not as I just started using the site and opted for the freebie. I read on the warrior's forum that a lot of webmasters like it.

      I ran about 100 hubs through IM on the free trial== yes it was easy, but I really can't say that it did anything for me. It sounded like a good idea and it couldn't hurt I guess, but I can't say I saw anything worth paying for.

      edit: I don't think I'm savvy enough to understand the directions on any of these more sophisticated items.

        Yep... you get so many per day. I build an RSS feed with backlinks that I went and created... I book marked it today with IM to test things out.. see if the backlinks get picked up faster with it or not. I got an e-mail the other day from the site master asking for a testimonial. I wrote back and said ask me in a month. I can't say whether it's helping or not either at this point.

          I got one of those ,too-- asking for a nice review, but i hadn't seen any results-- and still haven't. Maybe it was the fault of my hubs not being optimized for earning. Maybe someone who had their keywords keyed and their SEO up to snuff might do well with IM.

    I'm tempted to give it another shot, my current setup works pretty well though so I am kinda thinking, if it aint broke, dont fix it!

    If you really looking for the maximum program Market samurai is the way to go.  Problem is I only use the basics and that is more then mnf or ms provides.

    I have to say I've never used it. I just use the Google adwords keyword tool. It gives you all the key words you need, what the sponsors are bidding on and how much traffic they get.

    Do you really need to know more than that? It's free too. smile

    1. jaymelee23 profile image68
      jaymelee23posted 13 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, because Market Samurai can keep track of all over URL/Keyword rankings plus it creates a graph for SEO competition. You will be able to see if you moved up in the SERPS, down or stayed the same.  It'll also show you how many internal and external links that  the top 10 urls are ranking for your keyword of choice. It helps you figure out if you can rank fairly easily or if your are wasting your time.

        I see. Maybe I'll try out the free version sometime then, can't hurt. Thanks.

    I used the trial, it's pretty good but not worth the cost for me.
