Finding a profitable niche is the key to making money online. The process of finding a profitable niche market can be very time consuming. It can take days to find a niche, do competitive analysis, find affiliate products and complete sufficient keyword research. That is why investing in niche software that can save you time and find you profitable niches is well worth it. One of my favorite tools for niche research and competitive analysis is Market Samurai. As my site is about niche marketing I thought it would be helpful to provide a Market Samurai review.
Market Samurai is considered a must-have tool by many marketers and is endorsed by marketing great John Reese. If I had to use only one piece of software for my online business then this would be it. It is constantly upgraded and has an excellent support and help service. It has a beautiful interface and is an absolute joy to use.
Market Samurai can help you do the following:
It would be impossible for me to review all of Market Samurai’s features in one post, so I’ll just review my favorite module – the SEO Competition module. Here we go:
An example of how powerful Market Samurai is the SEO Competition module. In less than a minute you can determine how competitive a keyword or niche market is. When using the SEO Competition module Market Samurai will go out and pull in the top 10 search results for your keyword and determine how difficult (or easy) it will be for you to achieve top page ranking on Google. What is amazing is how much detailed information you have access to. Market Samurai will bring in the domain age, Google PR, number of backlinks and url counts of all of the top 10 sites in less than a minute. It will also tell you if your competitors have the keyword your targeting in their url, page title, header and meta description.
As you can see Market Samurai color codes the various cells, so you can tell at a glance how strong your competition is. Red means difficult, yellow is average, and green is easy. So if the SEO competition table is filled with red cells, you know right away that ranking for this keyword will be quite challenging.
You can then have Market Samuarai reveal the backlinks of each competitor site and then have it run Page Rank and Anchor Text Analysis.
This is amazing. Market Samurai will list the location of your competitors most valuable links in just seconds. This would normally require hours and hours of work. You can then attempt to get the same backlinks as your competitors. This gives you the a great chance of out-ranking your competitors to reach that prized number one spot on Google.
The rank tracker is another tool that I love. I use this tool everyday to check my rankings and find backlinks. The screenshot below shows some my rankings for my niche site on learning Japanese. As you can see Market Samurai has helped me achieve top ten ranking for many keywords.
Market Samurai is not just a keyword or niche finder tool. It really is the the Swiss army knife for Internet marketers. If you don’t have it then you are putting yourself at a massive disadvantage. You can download Market Samurai for a 2 week trial. It is also very affordable. In fact, I think it is an absolute steal for what it can do. No monthly fees. Just a one time investment. Go get it and have a play.
