Question: Can you tell me if you use Market Samurai much – I have it and have just started doing web design (using MS Expression Web) and have a few clients to do SEO, but still learning so much. What are your thought on Affiliate marketing efforts?
Answer: There are many paid SEO tools, Market Samurai among them. Hubspot is another. What I find is the most of these tools are no better than the free tools out there. They tend to have very glossy front ends and also tend to overwhelm you with ‘too much’ information.
Even worse, most are based on the Google tools as well as other free tools out there; Market Samurai explicitly uses Google for its back end. So what’s the point? You might as well go to the source, for free.
And, in my experience, focus is just as important to SEO success as is quantity.
