    Well, it is not worth the 97 or what ever they charge, after 2012 the program show up as beta and given that it does not extract information from google for keyword research competition but from bing, you wont get very accurate stuff there, the rank tracker is damn bad, the seo competition is useful but not the best, if you can use the free version to extract kws from kwd planner i would be ok.

    MS and long tail pro are based on adobe air and it works IMHO awful. the 2 of them hangs on until the app crashes when i try to stop it while gathering data from bing or google.

    From the price point i wouldn't pay what they charge for this programs, you'll be better with the free options.

    Recently i bought traffic travis (which i was reluctant to try for years) i did from a really cheap link, not the 97 they charge a year.. and it seems to work pretty well for given tasks and is a bit more accurate and significantly faster than the other 2, not perfect but useful.

    For you to know MS collected data from google gathering competition data with the common operators such url, title ... but then idk what, and they couldn't keep fetching that info from google and they change it to fetch from the bing index which is not really relevant and far inaccurate since the keyword data still comes from kwd planner.

    My advice

    keyword research.. free sources such kwd planner and other you can find
    Competition research.. manually would do better even though the free version of MS can help you on that i think
    Rank tracking.. not good at all, at least the free version which is the sell point and is baaad.

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the answer, but the trial now has only 12 days.

    I think the trial version is 12 days now...

    Will google that stuff :)

    I will check Traffic Travis. :rolleyes: Market Samurai doesn't have rank tracker in the free version. CMIIW.

    Keyword research software like Market Samurai usually have many disadvantages compared to their online counterparts hosted in the cloud. I recommend them but no longer use them. I use Keyword Planner almost exclusively and sometimes use Jaaxy.

    Those are indispensable when you are out and about without your laptop and need to do some keyword research.

    I would say - go buy it. Its fine. Yeah they show indexed pages count from bing and some more things too but backlink profiles for top 10 is shown by majesticseo. ALSO many more cool features. Such as checking bulk tf/cf etc.
    If u have good budget then https://serpiq.com/

    What software?

    Jaaxy, just checked that page and I think its not really expensive. What is the advantage using Jaaxy?

    Serpiq, checked that and it price same as keywordcanine. I think it must be really good for that price...
