Market Samurai SE Rank Tracking

When Google put a tighter squeeze on third parties using their data, a lot of programs and services got hit hard. Scroogle, the privacy enhanced search engine which basically displayed Google SERPS but without the ads or the tracking, shut down and keyword research tools like Market Samurai were forced to operate on less than ideal levels. Market Samurai's SE rank tracking feature was almost instantly rendered impotent.

Noble Samurai, the company behind Market Samurai, has now entered into an agreement with Authority Labs, providers of data to tools like Raven Tools, to provide rank tracking data. This could prove to be a viable solution for the problem users of the Rank Tracking module have been facing.

It seems Authority labs will be providing the data for free for light usage and will be providing a paid service for heavy users.
