    Hello, I have the paid version of Market Samurai and have found it useful for the most part but I know there is still a lot more for me to learn to be able to use it to it's full potential.

    One thing I'm having questions on and wondering if anyone could help was I did an SEO Competition report on a term and our page showed up but I can't understand why a couple other pages are ranking higher. We're listed at #10 but I can't figure out why especially #2 and #6 are ranking so much higher when with everything I've watched in the tutorials tell me they shouldn't be...

    I can't post any links but maybe this will work? Thanks.

    Backlinks are not always easy to track down. Majestic has limited coverage and most sites block them from crawl.

    Do you have any specific proof that they block specifically Majestic from crawling?

    You can go on Majestic's website and they will tell you how to block their spiders through your robot.txt file. Its been getting more and more popular for sites to block these types of spiders in order to hide their backlink profiles from competitors.

    Can you suggest a good way to figure this out? I mean just looking at the numbers it doesn't make sense to me, and I've been told that Market Samurai doesn't give you the whole picture but I really just want to figure out how the number 1 and 2 sites are doing it because it's the same in other major cities we compete with them in. Thank you.

    This is a little expensive but worth the investment if you know what you are doing.

    The trick is to use multiple backlink trackers/finders; Moz and Ahrefs are the two biggest I think.

    By using those you are able to see what links the competitors are using even if Majestic is blocked.

    I don't need the monthly subscriptions they offer just for one site, but I'll keep looking, thank you for taking the time to help :D
