    I want to check keyword competition, I'm fairly new to SEO and am still learning. I've been using Traffic Travis to see my keyword competition now that it's completely destroyed T . T, is there any other free tools I can use?

    Please and thank you,
    Ken

    heard serp attack is only working for youtube vids,
    that's not going to help much...heard that is true as well with
    TT seo analysis..... it didn't seem to return any results
    much less UT

    Seems it started for everyone around late friday

    must be a change at google or it wouldn't be affecting both
    TT ad serp attack, or at least I assume it's G

    I'm seeing posts all over the place about the problem(other forums, * cough *)

    at this point they don't seem to be replying to support tickets either

    not a good way to promote your paid version.....
    the problem seems to be for both free and paid versions

    ??? Did you not read the thread at all? I'm looking for a substitute...

    Traffic Travis is experiencing technical difficulties.

    no it's not

    no interested in MS

    I noticed that once I tried using TT, my browser for the 1st
    time wanted me to verify a chaptka

    so apparently google is blocking automatic rank checking tools

    Hali~!:)

    I have TT and MS both in trouble, also had problems with Project Blueprint so i would suggest that it is as said BIG G.

    If this is the case no point buying anything until they get ahead of this which will be all over forums when they do.

    In the meantime you could use google tools slow but free.

    Are they all displaying incorrect keyword data? Or just dodgey?

    Note: It's 5:30 AM and no sleep in 48 hours. Please disregard grammer.

    Have you tried Rank Tracker which is from SEO Power Suite? If you're encountering the same problem with both Traffic Travis and Market Sumarai the problem could be on Google's side.

    Also you should try again after some time. In 2008 many people also experienced problems with SEO analysis because Google was updating their search traffic data. Then, Google deleted the old keyword data to replace it with the new one so in between that people had difficulty accessing that data. Everything should work normally once the update is completed.

    Seeing as though Scraping google is against their TOS(which surprisingly all these tools break), I'm sure this will be a major issue in the future. People talk about how SEO will change, I believe this will be the first change, taking away the reporting tools.

    I would say go with Market Samurai, and MS only. I've used it for years now, it's one of my favorite and top internet marketing software.
    But no matter which application you're going with, take into account that the numbers they display are only estimates provided by search engines (Google mostly) so take it with a hint of salt, always check the search numbers with every tool you have access to, maybe even do some light PPC before getting into a new niche!
