2020 Update: Market Samurai has been retired and will no longer be on sale from now and on.
In a world were many people is trying to rank high their articles on Search Engines, we can get lost very easily. I’ve been there, testing and trying each one of the hundreds and thousands of programs and internet services promising you that will get your website ranked high on Search Engines, and wasting my money from it. Welcome to my Market Samurai Review, where I’ll cover all the basics and the top reasons to buy this excellent Keyword research tool.
Additionally to my Market Samurai Review, I’ve been working on some guides to help you analyze and beat the competition with Market Samurai. Make sure you read them to get the best out of it (I’ll be adding more and more as soon as I write them for you):
- Why Longtail Keywords are better for your blog and how to find them
- How to find your competitor’s backlinks and BEAT THEM!
- How many backlinks do I need to rank in the first page of Google?
Let me tell you something…
Probably out of 10 programs available on the internet, only 1, if not less, will help you get ranked where you want. And Market Samurai is one of these tools, but ONLY if you know how to use it. I’ve been using Market Samurai for 1 year already, and I still have some things to learn.
Market Samurai Review – The do’s and don’ts
However, let me tell you why Market Samurai will help you get your page ranked high on Google, Yahoo, or Bing. But first, let me tell you what Market Samurai makes not:
- Market Samurai does not use Black hat SEO techniques. So, if you’re interested in those (you shouldn’t), you’re on the wrong page.
- Market Samurai does not create trillions of backlinks. Yes, this is true. Market Samurai is a Keyword Research and competition analysis tool. Not a backlinks tool.
- Market Samurai isn’t a magic tool that will help you rank anything you like on google’s first page.
OK, now that we’re over that part, let me tell you exactly what Market Samurai can make for you.
- Market Samurai can help you identify the right keywords to appear on Google’s first page. Yes, I said IDENTIFY. This means you don’t select the keywords. You actually look for them.
- Market Samurai can let you know more about your competition. You can get to know where are they getting their backlinks, and how many backlinks you need to rank higher than they.
- Market Samurai can help you identify monetizing options, such as well sold products or articles.
- Market Samurai can help you organize your content from several blogs from just one window.
- Market Samurai works both in Windows and OS X (tested by myself). And yes, this can be a big issue as many tools are only Windows-based.
As I’ve told you at the beginning of this article, I won’t recommend any product if I haven’t tested it first. I really need to be satisfied with the product itself so I can write this post, and of course, with Market Samurai I am.
But instead of telling you what you can find and do with Market Samurai (which is being published everywhere, including the Market Samurai Dojo), let me show you some examples of how it has worked for me.
And yes, I mean real-life examples, and not the ones using “dog training” (sorry, Samurai Dojo) as an example. here are my findings:
Market Samurai Review – The Keyword Research Tool
This functionality is one of the best ones in Market Samurai. In fact, Market Samurai could only have this feature and I’d still buy it. It’s like the heart of the code and for a good reason.
Let me show you in the following example:
So, when I was about the read this article, the first thing I did was to research the right keywords for it. From a list of almost 700 keywords related to Market Samurai, I selected the “Market Samurai” keyword as my option considering the competition and the total traffic it can drive to my website if I manage to rank it high.
As you can see in the image, I also found many other keywords that passed what Market Samurai calls the “golden rules”, including Best Keyword Tool, keyword density tool, and others.
So, why didn’t I chose one of those keywords? Please continue to read and you’ll find the answer.
Market Samurai Review – The SEO Competition Module
“Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”
So finally I decided to go after the keyword “Market Samurai Review”, because the rest of the keywords were already difficult to rank. Even if the keywords passed the Golden Rules, which means there isn’t so much competition, I was able to check my competitors and finally found their websites were already quite good, with tons of backlinks, high PR, and even and old domain. So finally after several tests, I found the following results:
But let me show an example of how I managed to rank some keywords on the first page of Google with Market Samurai too.
How I ranked a high traffic keyword with Market Samurai
In the following case, I used Market Samurai to get into a very difficult niche; the iPhone and iPad tutorials.
So what I did was basically search for different keywords around how to charge any of your Apple devices faster, thus including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. Of course, I was tempted with the search engine traffic it could mean to be at the top, so after making some analysis I decided none of my blogs was going to be able to achieve it on a short length basis, so I decided to open my Hubpages profile and write it there.
I took this decision based on the possibilities to rank high with Hubpages, and because of the fast index process with them. I wasn’t expecting that much, so if I ever managed to appear on the first page of Google I was more than satisfied. So I wrote my hub (that’s how they call an article at Hubpages) and forgot about it for 2 or 3 months until this happened:
Yes, at this moment I’m ranking on the number 3 result for the keywords: charge iPad faster, charge iPod faster and charge iPhone faster, all of them with the same article.
Pretty cool huh? I even started to write more Hubs after being ranked that good and built some backlinks to it.
So for conclusion, what you need to know is that while Market Samurai isn’t going to make your articles appear on the first page, it will help you decide whether or not the article has potential, and more importantly, how you compare to your competitors and what do you need to reach them.
What happens if I have tens of hundreds of keywords to check every week?
That’s fair. I’m pretty sure if you have a blog or several websites you want to check the ranking of different keywords for each of your blogs. That can be a painful task and it could take a whole day.
So let me tell you about the last Market Samurai module I’m showing you today. This one is called Rank Tracker.
The Rank Tracker Module allows you to keep track of different keywords and different websites. I f you’ve got a license for market Samurai, the Rank tracker allows you to track up to 50 different keywords, which is probably enough if you have 1-3 blogs. You can always update this plan to a higher plan paying some more if you need, but the 50 keywords Market Samurai includes should be enough for most people with 1 License.
Before, Market Samurai allowed you to check the ranks of your site for free, but you had to do it everything manually every time you opened Market Samurai. So, for most people having this tool automatized for tracking up to 50 keywords should be more than enough, and you’ll receive a weekly update on your email as a bonus.
What else can I do with market Samurai?
Finally, there are more modules to explore, like the monetization and content modules, which allow you to find similar content and the best products to monetize depending on your content, and also a tool to publish content to your blog directly from Market Samurai, however, I think these functions are extra and can’t be considered for SEO or Page Rank purposes.
OK, I want to give it a try – where can I buy Market Samurai?
The price by itself isn’t bad, especially considering that you’ve got a new tracking tool included for free (up to 50 Keywords) that would cost at least $200.
Finally, this isn’t over. Even I’ve covered the basics on this Market Samurai Review, I’ll still write more articles on how to use all the modules, and show you some real tests I’ve done with it with the results (bad and good ones), so don’t miss the opportunity to get Market Samurai and share with me at the comments below.
A Bonus for you
Considering I’ve tested market Samurai myself for 12 months and I managed to achieve great results, I invite you to download Market Samurai and take your free trial. If you have a question on how to do or check something, you can post it on the comments and I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
Not only you’ll receive some good feedback from me, but I can also show you how to filter the best keywords, how to find long-tail keywords and show you to check how many backlinks (and where do they come from) you need to beat the competition. As I’ve said, the key to Market Samurai is to help you find the best keywords to rank, not to rank the ones you already have (even it might be possible after some analysis), and I know how to do that already.
So, what are you waiting for? You have nothing to lose. You can download your Free Market Samurai Trial and test it. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.
To your success!
