    Searched high and low and couldn't find my answer.

    Just started paying for MS again after having traveled the last year.

    Is there really no way to check "seo competition" for more sites than just those on the first page of google anymore? Am I trolling or is market samurai only half the samurai it used to be?

    SB has got some brand new plugins ready to use recently. All new and cheap and real useful. I doubt there is such as thing as "dust in wind"

    I thought that once you bought it that was it, but now you have to pay a monthly fee to use rank tracker - whatsup with that??

    Not as good as it used to be. In fact it is nowhere near as good as it once was. This is my personal opinion and I guess you will always find someone who will exactly the opposite. It does come down to user preference in the end. But I can get similar results using some of the many free tools lying around...

    What free tools are you using? Do they compare search volume and competition and help with long tail keyword ideas??

    I found google keyword planner with scrapebox is the best combination.

    I only use MS to check general on page and slightly of off page factor, which is not a must have tool, at least for me.

    I still use MS. The SEO competition tool is good for analysing top 10 positions. I can't see another tool that does it better as of yet. I don't use it for anything else. I use my own bot for kw research.. SB with some plugins, UNF and Spyfu combined to give an accurate difficulty rating.

    MS seo competition has become quite bad. It is not very stable and i guess is on the death phase of software life cycle.
