I'm sure a lot of people here subscribe to MajesticSEO. I do and use it frequently for link analysis (especially competitor analysis). I like to see where others who are ranking well are getting their links. I like to see what they are doing right (and wrong) as far as placements. It often triggers ideas for link building that I might not otherwise have thought of.
Well, I logged in yesterday and noticed I had old messages. Hell, I had never even noticed the messages section and I've been using it for a 1.5 yrs. One from the beginning of Sep was offering free training, which I've often wanted.
Majestic is a great tool (or better yet, suite of tools), but their interface is NOT always intuitive. I have a certain way that I use it based on what I've figured out by fumbling throug it, though I know that I've barely scratched the surface on what it "can" do.
So I responded. I have a one hour training session next week. If you subscribe, I think its an excellent opportunity to learn to do more with a tool that you're already paying for.
Just wanted to share. I am in no way affiliated with their product.
I have tried various tools, not Majestic, but other tools, and the biggest PITA is the User Interface. Some of these tools are an absolute challenge to use. This isn't a recent trend either. It's a fact of SEO software and hosted solutions going back years and years.
