The software’s features that help website owners adhere to good SEO practices for 2012 and for years to come such as:
Proper Keyword Research
In the past, budding internet marketers used to be advised to target high traffic, low competition keywords. However, many learned the hard way that a keyword is never a good keyword unless it is a buying keyword. With Market Samurai, users can find many buying keywords while taking into account the strength of the competition. They can also find related keywords or LSI keywords which are also an important factor in ranking after the recent SEO changes.
Analyzing SEO Competition
With the reports of small websites hit by recent Google algorithm changes, internet marketers can use Market Samurai to analyze SEO competition by looking for high ranking websites that have been created just recently and which are optimized for the keywords they have considered.
Finding new websites that rank high for a chosen buying keyword means that the keyword is easy to rank for and analyzing the competing website’s SEO can help in the ranking of one’s own website. This is very important in trying to rank websites this year because of the reports by many marketers of difficulty in ranking new websites after the recent Penguin update.
Ranking today is no longer as easy as buying cheap spammy links such as xrumer blasts, forum profile links, or article network backlinks using spun content. The trick to backlinking effectively and safely after the Penguin update is through backlink quality, backlink variety, using dofollow and nofollow links, anchor text variation, web 2.0 properties, and adding a 2nd tier set of backlinks for the tier 1 backlinks made to the main website.
All this is possible with Market Samurai with its ability to find more than 17 sources of whitehat backlinks which include forums, blogs, web 2.0 properties, and document sharing websites among others.
After the 2012 Panda and Penguin update, many internet marketers have learned that pages with at least 500 words of content fare better compared to those with a lower word count. Additionally, content should be written for readers and no longer for search engines with a keyword density of no more than 2%.
Additionally, related keywords or LSI keywords which can be collected through Market Samurai’s keyword research tool play a huge role in SEO now which is why content should include these words. The keyword research tool and the Content Research tool of Market Samurai make it a goldmine for writing high ranking, high quality content.
Improving and Maintaining Ranking
One of the most important pieces of advice successful internet marketers have shared after the recent Google algorithm changes is that variety is key. This pertains to SEO efforts such as backlinking and content creation. Backlinks should come from a variety of sources, should be a mixture of high quality and low quality backlinks, should be a mixture of dofollow and nofollow, should use different anchor texts, should include web 2.0 properties which are also backlinked, and should link to all pages within a website and not just the home page.
Content on the other hand should be a minimum of 500 words and should be written for readers without keyword density in mind to minimize keyword spamming penalties. These two factors in ranking is made easier with Market Samurai’s keyword research and content research tools.
In addition to the other tools that have made Market Samurai such a hit to internet marketers, the recent addition of the improved rank tracker tool which has been made better than before should prove a priceless addition in monitoring your ranking with greater ease and precision.
