    I had a program that gets the top 10 search engine results and then shows you a bunch of info like backlinks to page, backlinks to domain, google pr, etc, but now that yahoo site explorer is down, it no longer works.

    Does anyone have any alternative programs that will work like this?

    Thanks

    Not really starting any new projects now, but when I do keyword research, I use the Google Keyword Tool (to look for keywords with decent search volume and decent CPC), and Market Samurai (to check top 10 competition for the keyword).

    I keep it to GTL for keyword research and MS for competition analysis.

    Google keyword, travis traffic, market samurai are the most reliable tools around at the moment.
    Don't use more than 2 or 3 tools to build your campaign, you will more likely get confused than actually doing some work.

    Long Tail Pro for both keyword research and competiton analysis. SECOCKPIT looks awesome though, may have to try that soon.

    Do you guys also notice a big difference between Market Samurai results vs those of Traffic Travis?

    It seems MajesticSEO greatly inflates its link count.

    What do you think?
