    So I got Market Samurai Today - the trial version. I wanted to use it for a keyword finding method that would save me tons of time (Found it on BHW).

    All is good, following the steps. I click Generate Keywords and go out.

    When i come back - here is what I see:

    Fetching G Keyword Tool Data : 230%

    What the *uck?

    I tried running the same thing again, but now it just freezes. I updated AIR, restarted - nothing.

    Can anybody share some experience on this? Any fixes? Anything I did wrong?

    I checked the ignore additional and set the phrase length to 3 to 10.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Lots of issues happening with Market Samurai at the moment, thanks mainly to Google's search overuse policy. A way to get TTravis Pro for Free was posted a couple of days ago.

    Sigh, too bad. Switching to Traffic Travis then I suppose.

    Traffic Travis has the same functions?

    Hi Everyone,

    This was caused by a change in the Google Keyword Tool.

    We are working on a fix and expect to have it available later today.

    There's so many Google updates these days, and I think Market Samurai is starting to give up. They got 3 other programs they still sell and can rely on, I think.

    MS is in the middle of many many problems. I bought a couple yaers ago so it was worthwhile, but for you, I would suggest getting a refund and moving to one of the suggestions made in the posts above.
