PPP 009: Changes to Keyword Research, Writing Effective Review Articles

Please take a second and visit my podcast page in iTunes and leave a rating and a comment- it will really help. You have to be logged into iTunes to rate it, so it’s easiest to just search “strayblogger” in the iTunes store. Thanks a million.

In this session, I talk about the recent changes to Market Samurai and what the main effects are, and what I’m doing about it. I also go into some new stuff I haven’t covered on the topic of how to write a good product review- this is a good one, listen to it!

Stuff I mention in this Podcast:

-Long Tail Pro -Spencer Haw’s awesome keyword tool that has taken the place of Market Samurai

-Super useful comparison table plugin- this is what I use to create comparison tables in 2 minutes

    Will be listening to that soon.

    If you don’t cover it in the podcast what do you think of SECockpit?

      I think SEcockpit is really good, but for what I want to find out when doing keyword research, it has a lot more features than I need so Long Tail Pro has been the perfect replacement for Market Samurai for me.

    Nate – same question; SEcockpit looks bada$$, but it’s crazy expensive. What are your thoughts on the program?

    Can you post the name of the Review writing service that you mention in the podcast. Maybe a link too?

    Actually, I came here looking for the same thing Joe just asked you about…

    Any chance you can post the gig here please Nate?

    How are you finding the OptinSkin plugin, I am thinking it will really help me collect more subscribers, have you seen any change to your subscriber rate?

    That would probably make a good podcast…

      Matt- I really like it so far. It’s getting several subs a day but my popup still gets the vast majority. I know people say they hate popups but they work so well you can’t ignore them.

    It would be nice if you start including text transcripts along with your Podcasts.

    Hi Nate,

    Love your podcasts and blog. A quick question about Longtail Pro…do you have any problems with it as I’ve done a bit of research before purchasing and found that it is very slow, bans your IP with even the simplest of searches and sometimes brings back zero values.

    I just thought I’d ask before purchasing from someone who knows what they’re talking about!

      Ryan- To be honest I have gone back to mostly using Market Samurai- It’s just way faster and while it doesn’t give you SEOTC results from Google, it does give you the SEO competition from the top ten of Google and that’s the most valuable thing to me anyways.

        Hi Nate,

        Thanks very much for the quick response. I’m still on the fence about both at the moment and am still in the trial of Market Samurai but I do like the ease of Longtail Pro too.

        I guess it’s six of one and half a dozen of another. I’ve heard so many good things about Market Samurai it’s hard to ignore them really.

        I guess I’ll sleep on it.

        Keep up the excellent blog, it’s really inspiring to hear about the methods and your success. I’ve only every earned 19 English pence online so far but I hope this increases!
