    Hi,

    As the title says anybody still using market samurai for checking seo competation. I didn't used it since long time. Need feedback.

    Till date i never used proxies with Market samurai, planning to get around 50 private proxies if it is still working.

    I've been using it since 2009! It works great for finding your comp. It's a little slow these days though...

    I've been using MS for a very long time now and I've never had to change the proxy settings. I usually limit my sessions to about 20 keywords though. The built-in proxy servers are decent, although sometimes after 10 or so keywords, you'll be unable to get partial data pieces for some of the URLs.

    If you plan on doing intense keyword research at one time, I'd go for some private proxies. However, to get the most out of it, I would recycle those proxies with other programs (Xrumer, Scrapebox, Rank Tracker, etc.).

    Give it a try w/o proxies first and if you find yourself hitting the limit too soon, get the proxies.

    Still working like a champ for me, not as useful as it once was but still a good tool to have.

    I only use it for the seo competition module.

    Rank tracker pretty much blows now.

    I been using basstrackerboat's serpbuddy for rank tracking and its working great so far. Its a paid service though.

    I use it for on page competition and rank tracker. I've never had a problem with the built in proxies
