    Since Bing and Yahoo merged Micro$oft are obviously wearing the pants and seem to have stopped Yahoo supplying proper backlink stats.

    Majestic SEO that are trying to step into the gap but I hear their info is suspect for new sites to say the least.

    Market Samurai have now adopted their data as of today in what looks to be a last ditch effort, as their software has been struggling badly in recent times due to constant changes by Google as well as this.

    Any thoughts on this anyone?

    I brought MS and I haven't been happy with it at all, infact Traffic Travis has outlasted it many times over!

    I wish I could have got a refund to be honest

    Yes Market samurai seems to go to worst every day...majestic SEO is not bad but it's less valuable than yahoo info...
    every day is more and more difficult to do good SEO...

    yeah, i don't really like the new way things work with MS, cause majestic seo doesn't provide actual detailed info unless you pay

    Market samurai has really gone down the toilet. It has got so slow now its not funny. This morning I was trying to run reports for clients with it and I ended up thumping my monitor in frustration.. it took forever (over 30 minutes) to run a quick keyword check and ranking check that used to take a few minutes and the backlink data is crap. Each update seems to make things worse not better and yes this is a paid version. Running this on adobe air doesn't help either.

    I quite agree, MS is disgustingly slow these weeks.
    They sent me an email saying about their proxies problems and they are working to fix.
    I think it's time to make a quality step and rewrite the app in a pro way C++ or C# or even Java (SEO Power Suite is written in Java and runs fast).

I jut ran a competion analysis two minutes ago for a customer..Their competitor had just over 1000 backlinks..market samurai reprted 1200.. when I went to pull the first 1k backlinks with anchor text and PR anaysis it returned just 63 results..

    lol (not in a funny way), im running it just now.

    a client had about 250 links to page and 270 to domain yesterday
    today he has 565 links to page and 724 to domain.

    however it stuck on 99% so i canceled itas has been done many times before and now its froze on "Finding Results... Canceling".

    I wish I hadnt run that update now...

    EDIT: Just shut it down and opened up again. Even when signed in to majestic SEO you dont get the all the links or anchor text. This is seriously bad IMO...

    EDIT2: The only benefit that i can now see that you can tell how many unique IPs your getting your backlinks from, and this is actually a massive bonus. I still dont like the fact that I cant see all the links, but at least the cloud had a bit of a silver lining.

    I'm the same as you guys - this software has turned into a piece of junk now.

    My backlinks yesterday were 12,000 and today they are 44,000
    and that's just one site.

    Even though it was bad/slow before at least things were consistent........


    I agree with the other poster who said they should rewrite this in another language and get it working - I'd be happy to pay a $20 upgrade fee or something to make this work better.

    kind of pissed off with them to be honest.

    MS has showed that my keywords were'nt even ranking, but when I did a simple google search, I was in position 2. This is on many sites and keywords, some are right but most don't even show up, but they do in google! They need a major upgrade if you ask me.

    treyjunkin: Check which Google you've got setup and if you're logged in. It might not be MS that's showing incorrectly.

    The SEOC figures are also not accurate but not too far off. But the title & url competition figures are all wrong.

    I read in the Noble Samurai Forum that Majestic SEO keeps data for all backlinks even ones you built ages ago and were either taken down by the site owner or the site the link resides on no longer exists.

    Market Samurai is Pepsi and MajesticSEO is Coca-Cola.
    Some people like Pepsi better. They obviously never tried Coca Cola or can't afford it.
