    Anyone having competition backlink problems inside market samurai.?
    When I am inside market samurai and check the back links of web sites MS uses some form of api tied to Majestic Seo for backlink counts.
    It will give me two columns, one of which is for the root domain.
    It will say 9,000 backlinks.
    Yet if i go to my account at majesticseo.com and sign in then cut and paste the exact same url as I just looked at inside MS, it will give me a backlink count of about 640.
    How can the counts, supposedly from the same source(majestic seo) be out by factors higher than 10.
    And which is right.?

    I had a few nightmares with MS for a few weeks, then it was good and today its gone tits up again!

    It's showing some keywords at #45 when I can see with my own eyes that its #5

    This is one buggy programme

    There are alot more flaws in Market Samurai. That is why when i use it i check and recheck and take a average. I never trust just 1 site for my info. on keywords and BL's. Market Samurai is just what i use to get ideas but it is at the bottom of my tools. I wish you the best of luck

    Man, I thought MS had got itself back on track. It's not good to hear that more problems are surfacing. I haven't used it for a week or so but I haven't had any problems...hopefully this is a short fluke!

    I have been using both MS and Traffic Travis. I have to say that Traffic Travis seems to be closer more times than not on the real rankings.

    One thing i have noticed is that TT seems to get a 24 hour ban for searches a lot faster than MS does.

    even if you paid for it and using it it is still showing up in BETA, that means that the software is evolving so problems will most likely show up until in beta. I think it is worth every penny

    I found out what the problem was...MS was working fine..there is actually 2 backlink index functions inside of majestic seo.
    If you hit "use historic index" it shows you all of the backlinks, the initial backlink count I was looking at was actually a "fresh" count for the last 30 days of new backlinks ..
    "Use historic index" is what MS is showing which is all backlinks so MS is working fine..
