Hi Brad - yes - I've been able to see a quantifiable difference using Market Samurai. I've used it primarily in a couple areas - my personal blog, content for my business website, and my niche site projects that I've worked on here in the past. It's been instrumental on the rebranding I'm doing for my business site (which is currently under construction), and I've seen substantial improvements in traffic to my blog by using it to target different keywords when I'm writing.

My blog is not explicitly "monetized" but I use it to build my list and a sales funnel for the services that my business provides and it's been great to see that working.

I've not worked as much on my niche sites recently, but I have made a modest amount money from them, which all started as a project that we started here in this group a year or two back.

There is a craft to learning how to find the RIGHT numbers in Market Samurai and there has been a lot of trial and error trying to find those numbers, but I've got a few things that I've learned to look for now that I'll cover in the future.

Well done about Market Samurai.

Have you been able to track  real sales (profits)  due to using Market Samurai?  In other words something you are selling someting or a service  that you would not have sold unless you used Market Samurai?  Thanks  Brad

Just posted this huge post covering Market Samurai, a keyword research and analysis tool that can help you get some great intel on marketing targets for your website. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Diane, my strategy when searching for new plug-ins is to do a search, Google and/or Wordpress.org and see what comes up. Look at the number of downloads and reviews. Share Buttons by AddToAny is one that I have used in a few places, it has been downloaded over 3 million times and has 1095 reviews

I don't know if my question is big enough to warrant a new discussion or not, so I'll start here in the comments. I'll happy move up to a discussion if need be. 

My boss is wanting to add new social sharing buttons to his website. Do any of you have recommendations for the latest and greatest in social sharing buttons?

And now the podcast is live on iTunes, and Stitcher!

Comment by Christine Draper on August 9, 2014 at 1:32pm

Thanks Rob.  Its OK, I have now gone through the document and returned it.  I have never used a website developer before and its a much more complex undertaking than anything I've done. So I just wanted to know if there was anything in particular that I needed to look out for.
