The first is a feature request that I made myself and also on behalf of a community member, Travis, recently.
Spencer is calling that feature the 1-Click Bulk Keyword Competitiveness Score Check, which I’m super excited about.
In Long Tail Pro Platinum, when you type in your main keyword phrase, it will usually give you around 800 related phrases.
You’d normally look through the list for phrases you might want to target and you’d have to click ‘Calculate KC’, to manually calculate the keyword competitiveness for each phrase you’re interested in.
With this new feature, you should be able to click once and have it calculate the KC values for all of the phrases at one time. I’m very interested to see that added and it shows how responsive they are to customer requests. Great to see!
They will also be adding a Private Facebook group, specifically for Long Tail Pro Platinum customers, in the new year.
That is excellent as well, as I’m sure they will have folks in the group ready and able to answer any specific questions people might have, in real time.
I’m very glad to see Spencer and the team constantly improving an already great product, which is why I wholeheartedly recommend Long Tail Pro as my favorite keyword research tool of choice.
Most of my audience is already aware of the discount I provide on Long Tail Pro, but for all the new folks out there, you can grab Long Tail Pro at a substantial discount through my affiliate link.
Normal pricing for their annual plan is $352, but through my discount link you can get it for $297, which is $55 off.
Also, be on the lookout for another new post on New Years morning, detailing exactly how to start a new blog/website in 10 minutes or less.
This guide was a request from a recent new email subscriber Ravi and one that I’ve been meaning to do for a few years, but never got around to. Sometimes you just need that extra push, thanks Ravi.
While I’m here, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
Stick around, great things to come in 2016!
