    Use to be a heavy market samurai user but I've been refining my seo on my existing sites so I havent touched it in a while.

    Word on the web is the MS is not what it used to be. I hear the all the data & #'s are completely off & that overall it has turned into a slow clunky piece of shit. Can anyone confirm?

    So whats the new keyword research tool?....I hear Longtail Pro is pretty decent?...Alot of so-called experts seem to really clamor for SE Cockpit?

    Just wanted to get the BHworld opinion? Whats your keyword research tool of choice?

    It really depends on what you want to do.

    If you're trying to really look at the competition for a single keyword, serpIQ can replace Market Samurai's Top 10 analyzer, it actually shows a lot more data and comes with a free trial. As for SE Cockpit, it's really overpriced and their data isn't really "ground breaking" so to speak to justify the monthly price tag. It's stuff you can get with Market Samurai already. Longtail PRO, I talked to the owner a few times, nice guy, but software is mediocre.

    Whatever your choice is, all the best!

    I hope MS is not sinking as I recently purchased it! Unless I hear news of it going completely pear-shaped, I will just stick to it for now as I learn the ropes. Anyway, regardless of whether it's poos or not, I've found it fine so far - except for its speed in analysis. I'm not sure if that's due to my connection speed or MS servers (probably the latter?).
