I bought Market Samurai nearly two years ago and the one thing that tipped the scales causing me to buy it was that I got it at a really good price. As you can see from this post I got it at a 35% saving paying only $97 instead of $147. Since then I’ve done several posts on it including Market Samurai, Is It As Good As They Say and Learning How To Use Market Samurai.
I never bothered with keyword research until purchasing my very own copy of Market Samurai and imagine my surprise when I found out I could install it on my MacBook Air. That was a real boon because these days I do all my blogging on my MAC.
Something else that I learned once I got my own copy of the software was that being an owner I was now able to promote it as an affiliate. I suppose they do it that way because they only want people to recommend their software who really like it. Anyway, since becoming an affiliate I’ve paid for it many times over.
It’s been awhile since my last post on Market Samurai, at least 4 months, and I know you’re probably wondering where things are at. Truth be told I’ve been having a little problem with utilising its full potential. At first I thought it was because my old computer couldn’t handle the power but as it turns out they were having problems of their own.
Anyway they got it resolved and I was able to get a little more into it. As I mentioned in those other posts before Market Samurai I never really bothered about keyword research as I always figured it was a pain in the ass. When it came to deciding which keyword tools I would buy I decided to go for the one that everyone claimed to be the search engine optimisation specialist of keywords tools. I know I made the right choice too, and it’s not just because of all the positive comments I received in those posts from all the happy MS customers.
When I bought MS I had a particular blog in mind, my Sexual Aids blog, as I wanted it to get a whole lot more traffic and I couldn’t do it via the normal blog commenting route because most people don’t like links going to that sort of blog. So I thought keyword research was my best search engine optimisation strategy and Market Samurai the best keywordstool.
Using MS I discovered I was focusing on the wrong keywords so following its lead I decided a small change was necessary and so I focused my strategy on sexual aids as my keywords. While a blog’s changing content has always been a positive as far as search engines are concerned I’ve always felt it limited the SEO importance of the home page. This is because the home page is constantly changing with every new post. Keeping that in mind I included a little narrative in the header and footer including the keywords recommended by Market Samurai.
Since then those keywords, sexual aids, is now ranked #1 both in Bing and Yahoo. No such luck with Google though and the only thing I can think of is that Google places a lot more emphasis on backlinks, and like I said earlier its hard getting people to link to that particular blog. Anyway, if you’re looking for a good comment on your blog and you don’t mind linking to what is probably the only sex blog with good content :winkie: let me know in the comments and I’ll be there before you can say, ‘Sire is one heck of a horny blogger.’
As far as Market Samurai is concerned I’m still feeling my way around but the more I get into it the more I’m liking it. I may even use the domain feature to help me pick a good domain name for a niche site I have in mind. You may have noticed all the words in bold text and how some of them are spelt incorrectly, well it’s not because I’ve gone slack all of a sudden, it’s because I used Market Samurai as the keyword research tools to optimise this post to gain the best SEO advantage possible.
We all know that a lot of the time people misspell words when they do the searches and you can’t just guess what the misspelt words are. Well you could but you could be wasting your time by putting in the wrong words. MS helps you to use the right ones. Naturally you may not want to use them if you feel it will sully your professionalism, but that’s up to you.
If you’re not sure about outlaying the money to buy Market Samurai right now you’ll be happy to know they still have the trial offer. That means you can take it for a test run, as well as getting “4 Brief “How-To” Videos, Sharing How You Can Get More Visitors, with Less Effort” which they throw in as a thank you just for giving it a go.
Naturally as I learn more of the internal workings of Market Samurai I will be doing further updates and if I learn any tips and tricks I’ll be sure to share those with you.
