Discover free keyword research toolGuys behind Market Samurai – currently one of the best free keyword research tools, constantly work on improving its features.

Last months’ recent major changes included:


  1. New automatic Keyword Filtering Presets – you can now use one of several presets set up to help you better analyze your competition or you can set up your own presets, which will save you time when looking for more keywords later.
  2. Possibility to generate up to 800 keywords by default thanks to the Adwords integration. Now when you log in to your Adwords account (you can easily set up one for free) from within Market Samurai you can generate up to 800 relevant keywords. You can analyze them for finding the best ones setting up various filters.
  3. Updated Keyword Data, using the new Google Keyword Tool – thanks to the changes there is now new improved keyword relevancy, cleaner and more accurate traffic estimates.
  4. New feature in Keyword Research Module – SEOUC, which performs a Google search using the INURL function, so the result will tell you how many pages in Google’s index contain the keyword in their URL. This feature will help you better analyze the amount of real competitors in your chosen niche. It is because those pages which have their chosen keyword in their URL, are much more likely actively competing for that keyword. Market Samurai recommends setting a filter between 500 and 1000 for SEOUC to get the best results.

Finally, watch this useful video on how to generate up to 800 keywords.

    Hi Justyna
    I’ve watched a few of the MS videos and they are very good.
    Easy to understand and follow.

    Thanks for the info on the updates.

        Hi Justyna
        Just had an email from MS saying that they are having a few problems.
        Not sure what that’s all about.

        BTW – silly question but are you Martyna’s sister?
        I’ve only just made the connection.Typical man.

          Hi Keith,

          I got the email as well and did the critical update as recommended. The software works much better now but they are still looking for the best solution from what I read on their blog. It seems that even the biggest players have hackers’ issues sometimes :)

          Not at all silly, we are sisters :) World is very small when you are blogging :)

          Greetings for you

            Hackers – Scares me to death.
            I visit John Hoff’s site and read his security tips but it seems that if they want to get into your site… they’ll get in.

            I only put two and two together when I saw your comment on Martyna’s site and noticed the surname.

            I hardly dare ask but who is the younger? LOL
            Don’t answer that.

    That’s an interesting tool, never actually used anything like it. Will probably have to check it out. Another tool for the toolbox!

      Hi John,

      Great to see you commenting again.

      Currently guys from Market Samurai experience some problems, as their servers have been hacked but knowing how reliable and skilled they are it is only a matter of time, to solve the problems.

      Have a try, you won’t be disappointed :)

    Hi Justyna
    Decided to buy the Market Samurai.
    I’ve been told that if you subscribe to the free version first you always get a discount when buying.

    I’ll order through your link – any advice on getting a discount?

    Keith

      Awesome :) Great you decided to invest in Market Samurai and you do it through my website. Thank you!

      When you try the full version of MS as a trial, you will get around 35% discount off the whole price. Instead of paying $147, you will be offered $97.
      In addition to that to thank you for your kindness, I can help you to get the best out of MS fast. I offer you one hour free consultation on how to effectively use the most important modules.

      PM me if you are interested.

    Hi Justyna
    Sorry things disn’t work out with MS.

    I downloaded from the link to MS at the top of this page…

    “Guys behind Market Samurai – currently one of the best free keyword research tools, constantly….”

    Not worth wasting any more time.
    My apologies that it didn’t work out.

      Hi Keith,

      yes, a very strange case. But it may have to do with cookies.

      Let’s move on :)

      And let me know if you need any help with MS.

    I’ve used MS since 2009. Great tool with a lot of features. Sometimes it works very slow…:(
    But the best of keyword tool is your brain.
    Smart thinking and persistent work are the key of success.

    Alexa etc.
    I have used it since 2009.

      Link wheel strategy doesn’t show all the backlinks which power up the site…. It might have been the case with the site you mention.

    Hi Justyna,

    I’m using trial version of Market Samurai at the moment
    I’ve added my Google Adword account but I can’t generate more than 100 keywords.. any idea?

    Thanks

    • Justyna May 17, 2011, 1:08 am

      Hi Dicko,

      From time to time Market Samurai can experience problems but they are usually fixed fast. These problems happen mostly related to changes in Google algorithms and changes in tools MS uses to get data from.

      Today I did keyword research using MS and I was able to generate more than 700 extra keywords for a chosen phrase. In your situation you may consider:
      - looking at your chosen phrase if it is competitive enough to generate more than 100 keywords. Maybe MS won’t show more than 100 because it won’t find them for that phrase. In such a case, digg deeper into each of the shown keywords to find more.
      - if you see that your problem happens also with fairly competitive phrases, contact MS support desk for help. Here is the direct link to contact them: http://www.noblesamurai.com/support/

      Let me know if that helped.

        Hi Justyna,

        MS support hasn’t responded yet but I figured it out :D !!

        Throughout our discussion I was able to eliminate that it wasnt caused by me not using full version of MS or having no active AdWord account or any other settings.

        It’s because of ADOBE AIR!!
        I was using the old version, once I upgraded it to the newest version.. bam! 800 keywords generated.

        Thank you for helping out.
        Let me know if I can help you with anything at all

        Cheers!

          Hey Dicko,

          Awesome to hear that!! And Thanks.

          Also this is a great tip for others who might encounter similar issues.

          Let me know if you have any further questions with MS.

          Cheers!

    Its a very useful and powerful tool but Adword tool is also very nice and good for keyword research which is given by google so i am using that tool but as i come to this tool it seems more powerful than Adword.

    If you are serious about search engine optimization, then Word tracker is an essential investment, a must have resource for any search engine marketing professional.

    A good software is SEnuke X, but now google is penalizing the use of these tools. They should be used sparingly. Good contribution. Greetings.

    • Justyna September 30, 2012, 11:53 am

      @SEO Estudio,

      agreed that any link building automated software causes more harm than good! Market Samurai, however, is not any type of link building tool. As I wrote in my article it serves to research the keywords, analyze the competition and check the rankings.

    Read the post very informative then when reading through the comments I saw a comment about senuke and how you will be penalised by google for using it. Does anyone have any more info on this as I was considering using it and didn’t want it to go against my site?????

    Thanks lee
