Jaaxy 3.0: Big Updates, New Look, and a Bright Future

Last Update: August 28, 2017

Hey Everyone!

Today I’m excited to talk to you about the latest and great version of Jaaxy! After 14 months and basically rewriting the code base from scratch, we’ve created a released Jaaxy 3.0. It is beautiful, it is fast, and has brand new features and it is in position to evolve and innovate at a faster speed than ever!

You can check out Jaaxy 3.0 and login here:

https://www.jaaxy.com

The new version of Jaaxy may have familiar aspects to it, but it’s been recreated from the ground up. It’s faster, easier to navigate, and it offers more accurate and helpful keyword suggestions. We’ve re-introduced a total overhaul on our SiteRank platform...it’s AWESOME!

SiteRank - Track Your Daily SEO Performance or Your Competitions!

SiteRank was a big focus of this update because we wanted to make it a tool that we use and monitor daily. We’ve introduced the ability to track your rankings and set them up to scan automatically on an interval that you choose. Pro and Enterprise level accounts give you the ability to check a domain for a given keyword in the search engines, then see the results in a chart over time.

Publish a new article, then head over to Jaaxy and add your domain and a handful of keywords that you want to track your rankings for! Maybe you want to track another competing website in your space to see their rankings...this is just so incredibly powerful now that you can set-up automated tracking!

Another great element of SiteRank is that we are now checking the Big 3 search engines. Google, Bing, and Yahoo! This is no longer just a Google rank checking platform, we’ve expanded to Bing and Yahoo to give you a full report of how a domain is ranking for a specific keyword phase.

How SiteRank Monthly Scans Work.

Site Rank monthly scans are only deducted for the Jaaxy 3.0 new auto tracking feature. Each time a SiteRank search is performed automatically in the background, three scan credits are used. One for each of the search engines that are checked. Manual SiteRank scans do not count towards this limit.

Free Accounts come with 100 scans total

Pro comes with UNLIMITED manual scans and 2,000 auto scans per billing period

Enterprise comes with UNLIMITED manual scans and 5,000 auto scans per month

Every aspect of Jaaxy has been updated, from keyword search, to keyword list management, to siterank and auto tracking, Affiliate program search, brainstorm platform...it’s all updated!

...and you’ll be happy to see that both the Jaaxy website and member’s area are now running over a SSL secure connection (https://)!

Jaaxy Website, Vastly Improved

You will also notice that if you visit https://www.jaaxy.com, the website has been totally overhauled. We’ve got a beautiful, clean design that more accurately describes the platform. Affiliates of Jaaxy are going to love the new website and the possibilities!

You will also notice a clean new Jaaxy logo within the design, along with “loading” images that make use of the Jaaxy logo.

Attention: All Jaaxy Affiliates

Any page within Jaaxy can be linked to using your Jaaxy affiliate ID just as before and all of your existing Jaaxy affiliate links will work, including the Jaaxy Plugin.

You simply need to be a Jaaxy member (Free, Pro or Enterprise) to get access to the affiliate program.

For example you could link to the jaaxy homepage like this:

https://www.jaaxy.com?a_aid=YOURID

You can link with tracking variables like this:

https://www.jaaxy.com?a_aid=YOURID&data1=Track12345

You can deep link to specific pages like this:

https://www.jaaxy.com/join?a_aid=YOURID&data1=Track12345

When you are logged into your Jaaxy.com account, you can access all affiliate program details, commissions, stats and affiliate links directly from the “Affiliate Program” tab.

https://my.jaaxy.com/affiliate/details

Remember, if you are promoting Jaaxy get your Jaaxy logos and screenshots updated to reflect the new platform. Also within your Jaaxy reviews, you will want to update the content to reflect the new platform and the new features offered.

**Note: Updated Jaaxy banners will be coming in the next day or two and updated new and improved Jaaxy “search plugins” within the next week or so. Stay tuned.

New Jaaxy Pricing is Coming September 4th, 2017.

As we continue to advance the technology and platform over at Jaaxy, there are incredible costs associated with running such a technology platform. Not to mention all of the programming resources that we are going to continue to dedicate to Jaaxy.

In fact, we have a TEAM dedicated to just Jaaxy development moving forward, so you are going to see updates, improvements, and new features at a faster pace than ever.

The current Jaaxy pricing is as follows:

Jaaxy Free is currently, FREE for 30 searches. This won’t change.

Jaaxy Pro is currently $19/month or $199/year

Jaaxy Enterprise is currently $49/month or $499/year

After the price increase, new PRO and ENTERPRISE memberships will be charged the new rates of:

Jaaxy Pro is going to be priced at $49/month or $499/year

Jaaxy Enterprise is going to be priced at $99/month or $999/year

Let’s be clear about this...anyone that is signed up as Pro or Enterprise before the price incase will be grandfathered in at the current pricing. You WILL NOT be subject to a price increase. If you are currently a Pro or Enterprise account holder, you WILL NOT see a price increase.

So, if you’re wanting to get Jaaxy Pro and Enterprise accounts, now is the time to do it before the price goes up.

The price of Jaaxy is set to be increased on September 4th, 2017 (so not too far away). As of writing this post it gives folks just over 5 weeks to get in at the grandfathered prices above.

-------------------

The Future of Jaaxy is BRIGHT!

Jaaxy was updated for many reasons. Of course, it was due for a full refresh, but what this latest releases has done is given a new us a brand new platform that is fundamentally much more efficient and sound.

We always state, that in order to build a skyscraper you must first have a very solid foundation and although the foundation of Jaaxy 2.0 was sound, it is nothing close to what we have with Jaaxy 3.0.

We’ve had a vision for Jaaxy for many years and this will tie into the vision. You are going to see and you can expect some incredible things from Jaaxy moving forward...from what already is most affiliate marketers/internet marketers “go to” keyword and research platform.

Jaaxy is really part of the Wealthy Affiliate family now, it’s something that we’ve brought up to speed in terms of technology so that it can work seamlessly alongside WA. You are going to see a lot more in this respect as we move forward in 2017, but expect some “exciting” stuff. We’ve got some surprises up our sleeves that are going to take this wonderful platform to the next level...and Wealthy Affiliate too!

Give Jaaxy 3.0 a try and give us your feedback!

Have a great day!

Carson

I was under the free Jaxxy and when the new update rolled out, I am now Jaxxy Lite. When checking site rank it use to show the first 5 pages, now it only shows 1 page. I'm only 2 months in and I'm trying to keep costs to a minimum until my sites start making money. Should Jaxxy Lite show you the first 5 pages, or is it correct to only show 1 page?

Under the free Jaaxy, we were limited to 30 searches, but with Jaxxy lite that limit has been removed. It does only show one page of keyword results, but you can delve deeper into each keyword with the alphabet soup technique. This will give you many many key word ideas going even from the initial 1 page results.

I wouldn't worry about upgrading in Jaaxy until you've established you site much further, and then leverage Jaaxy's own affiliate program to offset the cost of upgrading.

Hope that helps,

Hey Carson, congrats for releasing new version of Jaaxy.

I've been a Pro member for a while, but then decided to migrate to KWFinder. So downgraded my account till Free one.

I haven't logged in for couple of months into Jaaxy and now decided to give it a try again. But turns out - "You've got 0 out of 30 searches remaining" - strange, if I haven't used it for several months.

Because I can't test new version, can you point out some advantages of using Jaaxy over KWFinder?

Thank you in advance

As someone who has been using Jaaxy for years, I wanted to take a moment to encourage anyone who is it on the fence about signing up to go ahead and do it before the price increases.

I can’t tell you how many times I have found myself coming back to Jaaxy time and time again because it offers such unique data on keywords that other tools can’t even measure. Often, I will find large groups of potential keywords on other tools, and in order to verify data I always come back to Jaaxy.

Time and time again I have found the Jaaxy gives the most accurate data for potential search numbers out of every tool on the market. I have found that Jaaxy’s predictions for traffic numbers have been spot on for the keywords I have managed to rank in position 1 for time and time again. It really does give you the best data possible when it comes to pursuing potential keywords.

So, if you're thinking about getting Jaaxy, I recommend going ahead and taking the plunge.

Hi there, it's great to read a testimonial from someone who has been using Jaaxy for some time.

May I check with you, when you said "Jaaxy’s predictions for traffic numbers have been spot on for the keywords I have managed to rank in position 1", how does this differ from the results offered by the Keyword Tool on WA itself?

Thank you in advance.

Hey Pam,

On the actual search volume itself, it doesn't differ at all. The numbers are almost identical. Jaaxy does give more results and better metrics as far as gauging if a term is easily ranked for.

I'm also a bit of a power user when it comes to Jaaxy, so I'm using the Enterprise edition. This is so I can see all of my data instantly. I'm a bit of an anomaly though because it's not uncommon for me to research 50 - 100 keywords at a time. I prefer to build a list of keywords for up to 3 months of content at a time, and I need the tool to be quick, reliable, and easy to use.

Over the years of trying multiple keyword tools including;

Market Samurai
WA's Keyword Tool
Keyword Keg
Keywordtool.io
the old Google KW Tool
LongTail Pro

and probably a couple more that I've forgotten along the way, Jaaxy has been the best.

Overall, while the WA Keyword tool is amazing for what it is, the competition data, QSR numbers in the tool, and the ability to save and store my lists in one place have made Jaaxy a must have tool in my marketing toolbox.

RamenRiches Premium
Hey Pam, to answer your question, the difference in search numbers is normally 0. The two tools are almost spot on to one another every time.

For me, I'm a bit of a power user and have tried numerous tools over the years including:

Market Samurai
Google KW Tool
Long Tail Pro (both flat cost and subscription)
Keywordtool.io
Jaaxy
WA Keyword Tool

and a few others that I forget their names and are no longer around.

With all of that testing, I've had the most luck with Jaaxy.

Now, I am a bit of an anomaly as I tend to research my keywords in batches of 100 +. I try to get all of my keywords, then create headings, and ultimately schedule everything out 3-6 months in advance.

For that reason, I need my KW tool to be fast, easy to understand, and reliable. I've found that with Jaaxy.

There are many times that Jaaxy will give me search numbers on terms that no other tool will. This is especially true with questions such as "how to" "what's the best," etc..

In my opinion, after trying almost every tool available on the market, I think Jaaxy is the best one. It's at least the one that I find myself coming back to time and time again.

pamdemonium Premium
Thank you for your explanation. I appreciate the effort you put into your reply!

Could I check, what do you mean by "Jaaxy will give me search numbers on terms that no other tool will"? I'm a new user, so which part of Jaaxy are you referring to when you say this?

Also, my purpose of asking is not to compare with other keyword research tool options in the market. It is to better understand Jaaxy, and what it can offer.

It's always great to ask someone with real life experience using Jaaxy.

To add to my question, do you mean to say you like the fact that you can get content ideas based on the "search numbers"?

I just tried to sign up for looking at the Jaaxy upgrade site, and thinking it was using my WA sign in, tried to add a new registration email address...

Apparently I must have signed up soon after joining WA to try Jaaxy...I do not remember but that could be the case, just to see what the difference was between the competitor's tool I have been using over the last 2 1/2 years and Jaaxy...

Now it says my account has been restricted due to mutiple signups...Is there a way to get the old account information or to reset the signup form so I can have a look?

Perhaps this is a question for support rather than here, but not sure about that either, as I have not used Jaaxy I do not think unless it was at the start of my free membership...

Any advice out there from the masses hehe?

Cheers!

I just use Jaaxy and love it very much. The rank for google, yahoo and bing appear simultanously in minutes count. I love the blue colour and the overall appearance. I love the search history so that I can see my posts rank simultanously. The brainstorming of relation keywords is great. My feedback is when input email address we must entry per character. I think better if we can see the email address record so we can simply click it and enter.

Hey Carson, not sure if this is something in progress or difficult to add-in, however it may benefit a lot of Jaaxy users. I have noticed that Jaaxy does not have the ability to 'remember' your login details, which means you need to login with username and password each time you open up Jaaxy.

I find the WA login great, as it saves my details and I have it load up on startup of my browser straight to the dashboard (as well as SiteManager on another tab), without entering details. As this is one of my (and I would assume many other's) main tools, if possible, it would be great to be able to load up Jaaxy without logging each time?

Please let me know if this is a possibility, or if my request/question is in the incorrect forum. (I did also submit the request through the contact form on Jaaxy, but was asked to contact Kyle directly...thought this discussion would be more appropriate). Anyone else, please feel free to chime in your thoughts, I am open to feedback on my question :)

Nonetheless it is a great tool, great updates and I am enjoying the enterprise membership. Well worth it!

Thanks for the update, glad to know I will not have to pay more for Jaaxy.
Now my only question is:
Pro accounts come with 2,000 scans per billing period, as you mentioned, what exactly is this billing period?
I just upgraded early this month for a year so that should be till July next year, does this mean I only get 2,000 searches in 12 months or is this billing period monthly?
I don't need 2,000 searches a month but I sure need over 2,000 searches in a year.
Please clarify this.,Thanks

Hi Roamy,

Regardless if you are on monthly or yearly billing your SiteRank scan limits are reset every month on your billing date (monthly) or billing day (yearly). No need to worry about scans.

I had cancelled Jaaxy due to financial issues and wasn't sure I could afford that *and* WA, but looking again, I was able to, so I came back. So far, Jaaxy looks great. I do agree, though What happens after the allotment of Siterank scans is reached. Do you get charged for any extra, which I need to consider. I'm a Pro member btw.

This is some exciting stuff. I must admit I have been holding off to go Pro with Jaaxy, used some of my 30 free keyword search...then went on to use the free Keyword tool here at WA.
Wanted to get more "going" with my website before committing to another $19 per month!
But seeing the advancements and the great stuff that is at hand I will definitely upgrade before September 1st...it just makes perfect sense!
Thank you guys!

I don't remember training on the Alexa Ranking.
Will there be an updated training within Jaaxy 3.0?
Meta keyword density percentage and other things that have not been covered in other training tutorials here about utilizing Jaaxy would be a great thing here at WA. I noticed the video in 3.0 is the older version of Jaaxy as well. I'm excited to get to know this new platform and keep using it. It was great to see my site have some keywords on page 2 and 3. I need to figure out how to organize my site rank and which keywords to keep on auto track and for how often. You guys are great with the organization, and I know this will only get better as it rolls out. Personally, I feel I will need a bit of training on how to use this newer version.

Well let me say this. I am foresure going to upgrade. Im going to be honest. I havent been here long and for what I needed so far I have just been using the WA keyword tool.

I did sign up for a free Jaaxy account a few days ago but honestly only looked at it for a few seconds. Well after the announcement I decided to go use my free account and see what Jaaxy is about.

WOW!!! Thats how I sum it up. I went and played with it for about an hour. I looked at the big picture and the future. I am in this for the long haul and with all the content Im going to need I figure I wont be able to succeed without Jaaxy.

Also in more than one post Kyle and Carson keep hinting at some other big stuff coming in Jaaxy. Well that has me intrigued. Its kind of like reading between the lines.

So, yes I will be upgrading my free account before September 1.

This place just keeps getting better and better.

I love Jaaxy, and I'm super grateful to know you will grandfather those of us who've been with you into Jaaxy's original pricing.

It would make or break my relationship with Jaaxy if prices were to go up for me.

There is no way I can live without the Jaaxy tool!!

So, Thank you!!!

The newer version of Jaaxy looks AMAZING !!!

If anyone is having doubts, trust me, you want to get into this now while these prices last.

This new update is so organized and easy to navigate. The new auto tracking feature is excellent. That alone will save me much needed time for creating new content and less time tracking my progress.

Thanks, Team!

Best,

I saw Kyle commenting the following about the increase of commissions:
"Yes, the commissions will change with the price increase."

But it doesn't make sense for the commissions to increase if I am locked at the current Jaaxy's price?

For example, the WA payment now is $49/month but I still get $22.50 instead of $23.50 (as was mentioned in the WA Aff program) because I joined the community before the price increased (that is when the price was $47/month).

Kyle & Carson just wanted to clarify on that.

P.S. Thanks for the great updates and your hard work, you are the best! :)

Congratulations on the new 3.0 Jaaxy.

While you are soliciting opinions on the new concept, I would like to put my two cents in.

I think for premium members, WA could be more generous with the free accounts and wipe the slate clean so that everyone who has for one reason or another (used 30 searches) in the course of their tenure with WA could start from point '0' and get at least another 30 searches free for the NEW 3.0 version or as others have suggested minimum 10 or 15 searches per month for their monthly or billing year.

At this point if you were a free account and used your 30 searches over time, you can NOT EVEN log in to Jaaxy to TRY the Site Rank option where you are entitled to 100 Site Rank requests. Actually it is not 100 searches because you are deducted 3 points for EACH search!

There should be some benefits for the Premium members who have been paying annual premiums. My membership permiums have gone up, even though I have written to support at WA in Canada and have not received a response from them or an accounting on why. My understanding was that I would be locked in at the original sign up membership fee.

If you force the members who are starting new businesses to pay for 160% increase in Jaaxy Pro fees then most may just opt for something else.

Carson Premium
Hi Randell,

The Free version of Jaaxy has always had 30 searches available, no change there. We've also upgraded the free version of Jaaxy by allowing SiteRank searches - in the past SiteRank was not available to free accounts. The 100 SiteRank scans will give people about 33 scans as well, this is on top of the 30 searches available for Keyword Search and other areas like Affiliate program search, Alphabet Soup etc.

As both Kyle and I have alluded to, we've taken a lot into consideration and we've got solutions to the price increase, bare with us because it will make much more sense soon.

Thank you Carson for your kind response.

You have however missed some of my points.

1) If over the course of 3 years I have used Jaaxy 30 times, I will not be able to log into Jaaxy to view the new 3.0 without signing up for and paying for the new PRO version. I am now blocked out of the free version to log on and look at the new site!

My point is that even for the Site Evaluation feature which has been added in the 3.0, I would not be eligible to review that.

I think that since you have a completely new version of Jaaxy, you could could give all members a NEW 30 keyword search plus a new 30 keyword search feature.

2) You have not addressed the increase in my annual premiums even though I have been a continual member the entire time and have sent messages to support in Canada for a response to that issue?
Thanks in advance for your response!

This is somewhat unfortunate.

Ever read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? The title character, Charlie, would receive a chocolate bar each year on his birthday. He would only take the tiniest nibble each day to make it last as long as possible.

That's me with Jaaxy. I have 8 of my free searches left from the account that I started over a year ago. I use them on "special occasions" ha ha.

I was seriously considering getting a pro account, but at this point in time, I cannot because I am not working and I have no money. By the time I have a job, it will have gone up in price. I was willing to pay the $19 and would probably still pay a slight increase, but a jump of 150% in one shot is rather exorbitant in my opinion.

Also, will the commission % change? As it stands now anyone who could somehow get 50 referrals a day should average (according to the calculator) $44,000/ month. If the % of commission stays the same with the price increase, those same 50/ day should theoretically pay out $110,000 per month...

EDIT to add:
I think there will have to be extensive training for Jaaxy added here, with a very detailed comparison of Jaaxy vs the free Keyword Tool.

I see people ask fairly often what the difference is, and at this point, I honestly can't tell them. If other people are like me, they have been saying "why would I pay $19 a month when I get almost the same thing for free?" When it jumps in price, they'll be even less inclined to consider it.

And that it not to put down Jaaxy. I'm sure it's great. I'm just saying that, after my year+ at WA, I don't even know the difference between Jaaxy and the free tool, which is a significant problem if you want us to use/ promote it.

MozMary Premium
Craig, thinking positively anything good could happen your finances and that $19pm or yearly fee could roll in within 5 weeks - it may also be possible to earn commissions from your free jaaxy to cover that, just like we can get free in here with a couple of commissions

as for comparisons - have you compared your results between jaaxy and the free WA tool and seen any differences?
Reply
CraigW315 Premium
Actually, using commission from Jaaxy to PAY for Jaaxy is what I am hoping for. I know things can change at any moment, but I am speaking from a "right now" point of view.

In terms of differences, I have only compared results maybe 2 times, and in both cases, they have struck me as being almost the same, at least in terms of the things I was looking at.

I have no doubt that Jaaxy offers more options and benefits-- I just don't personally know what they are. I also have no doubt that it is all spelled out somewhere (I have done quick, casual searches, but nothing in-depth), but from what I have done so far (completed certification and reached Phase 4 lesson 3 in bootcamp) it is not specifically spelled out in the formal training. Maybe it comes later in the bootcamp.

Anyhow, sorry if I am sounding negative. I am not meaning to. I'm just a little disappointed that I'd planned on making the switch to Jaaxy when possible, but now "when possible" just got further away.

As Carson said, if you sign up before the 1st of September at $19 or $49 (or the annual prices) you're grandfathered in at those prices for good, they never go up. Those of us that are already subscribing will stay on either $19 or $49 for life, so it doesn't affect referrer's commissions.

Yes, that part is clear to me. I understood that. I am sure many people will take advantage of that, which is awesome. I am speaking *purely* from a personal point of view. I am not presently a Pro member, nor can I be unless I fins some way to make a bit of money.

If I can make a couple of sales, or if I find a job, then I'll jump on Jaaxy right away.

Hi Carson,
Awesome job on the Jaaxy 3.0. I currently have the Jaaxy Pro and I pay monthly, how do I go about and pay yearly (199$/year)?

Also if I want to upgrade to entreprise and do so before the price increase will I pay 49$/mt or 499$/yr? On the other hand if I wait to upgrade after september 1st from pro to entreprise will I be subject to the price increase and pay 99$/mt or 999$/yr?

Thanks,

Love the new Jaaxy 3.0

Hopefully, you will have some time (if there is such a thing in WA) to look at the issues and fix the problems.

I was debating whether to put my 2 cents in or not since I'm still brand new and don't have much experience with keyword tools, but I decided I would for that same reason, so here goes.

The Good:
If all the code has been reworked to make it faster and more accurate, then that's a good thing! The new page format looks fine. I like that you can now see your rankings on Bing and Yahoo.

On the Fence:
Price increase - I can understand the costs involved in running a service like this. I'm sure it's expensive. I went out and took a look at other keyword search tools (SEOprofiler, KWFinder, SEMrush) and really the new prices, although a jump from the old prices, are still not bad comparatively. SEMrush is $99.95/mo for their pro version, their cheapest. I'm not sure I'd spend $49/mo as a newbie and definitely not $100! Thanks for the grandfather on the old prices!

KQI - Don't really like the great, normal, poor over the old green, yellow, red dots. For example on one keyword search a KQI of 78 comes up as normal, but 82 is great. It's kind of misleading to have something say great when really it's only good. Between the two I'd rather have a dot and then make my own mind up on whether it's great or not.

Domains - What's the difference between "find more" and "search"?

The Bad:
Site Ranking -
- Only searches the first 10 pages of Google now instead of 20 unless you upgrade. By the way, upgrade to what? When I click on the upgrade button it appears to want me to upgrade to Pro yearly (I'm on monthly). That gets me 10 extra pages?
- SiteRank Monthly Scan limit. If that resets per month then okay, but it is a little vague on the "per billing period" part. 2000 per year is a bit shaky.
- 3 scans used per scan. While it's nice that you can now see your ranking on Bing and Yahoo, it would be nice to have the option to ONLY scan your preference and save scan credits.

One other thing for the Bad section: I just did my review for Jaaxy three days ago before it all changed! :P

Good or bad, thanks for your efforts to help keep us on our journey to success!

Just read in a follow up post from Carson:

"Yearly members have their SiteRank search counts reset each month.

Again, to be clear, this is not a limitation on Keyword searches this is a brand new feature that we must have limits on due to the automated search functionality."

LOL! you just did your review before the changes! I feel your pain despite keeling over laughing at the same time! Well the good news is you've made a great start on your jaaxy 3.0 review and google loves updates :D

But you say you are new to keyword tools with not much experience, hesitating to put in 2 cents worth but have written a review on the old jaaxy - I guess this raises a big issue for absolutely every single one of us here - should we nail down some experience before publishing reviews on our websites?

I notice some of the pro superaffiliates using Jaaxy, there must be something to it...

Pro has ALWAYS been 10 pages, Enterprise is the first 20 pages.

Yeah, that is reset every month.

- 3 scans used per scan. While it's nice that you can now see your ranking on Bing and Yahoo, it would be nice to have the option to ONLY scan your preference and save scan credits.

That is a good feature suggestion and perhaps something that we will consider. One thing we don't want people to do is "cherry picking" to save scans as Bing/Yahoo alone drive full time businesses for many marketers.

We will take this into consideration with future updates, but ultimately we don't want folks to worry and for a power user, you should really have to worry having 5,000 monthly scans.

Ugg, yeah. Maybe I should call it Jaaxy Review 2.0? lol

And you are exactly right about that point on the reviews. I was thinking the same thing and to be honest it came out more as an advertisement rather than a review. I can't really put down goods and bads when, like you say, little experience and I also don't really have anything to compare it too since I haven't used other keyword tools.

Thanks for getting back with a reply Kyle! Honestly I can't remember what my pro edition of Jaaxy said before the upgrade as far as how many Google pages were searched. I know in both of the videos I've seen regarding Jaaxy you guys were using Enterprise so maybe that's where I'm getting the 20 pages from.

Cheers!

Sounds interesting and like some great update. At the moment I am just a free user. One of the things that I would really love and why I have not upgraded Jaaxy yet is language setting - are there any plans about making it available to do KW research and scans in other languages than English?

I also have a website in another language than English and in general it would be great to have the opportunity to do research in that language to see what people are looking for here locally.

Thanks,
Mikael

We are definitely considering this Mikael as it is an ongoing feature request (ie, you are not alone). Don't be surprised if this is something that comes to Jaaxy in the future. ;)

Ok, I already only have limited experience on the old Jaaxy and was just getting used to its features after upgrading to PRO a week ago, the best part for me was the site rank.
I'm grateful to be locked into the original price because I wouldn't pay $30 extra anyway so I would be a lost customer.

That said, I can see I'd be more concerned about running out of search credits during the course of my billing month instead of focusing on my keyword searches.

I'm also concerned that apparently I don't exist on Bing/Yahoo but I'm all over the place on Google which I'm pleased about so does this mean I'm missing out on %%% of traffic or is there a kink that not ironed out yet?

EX. I have a few keywords on Google P1P1 but they're nowhere to be found on Bing, and I know my previous employer had Bing as the default search engine on their systems so I'm missing traffic already.

Interested to know other people's views on this

Keyword searches are not limited if you are Pro or Enterprise, they are Unlimited.

SiteRank is the only limited aspect due to the automated nature of the platform.

Hope this clears things up.

Sorry I meant siterank and not searches, but what about visibility on bing / yahoo? I don't exist there ?

Do you have Bing Webmaster Tools set-up? If not, this can definitely help Dave. Bing/Yahoo typically take longer to penetrate than Google, but once you get in there you tend to stick for a long time.

Having Bing Webmaster Tools set-up and offering them a proper SiteMap can definitely help.

Too bad there is only a free trial period and not a free membership for e.g. 15 searches continuing free a month. A lot of people will be done with it after the 30 searches. When you offer 15 free searches afterward, you have the chance they get a pro account after 3-4 months. When they have used up the 30 searches in the first month, they hardly have any result and they are gone forever.

Loes, the FREE account is the same as it has been since the beginning of Jaaxy. Free accounts come with 30 Keyword Searches, and now with 100 SiteRank scans. This gives folks an opportunity to use the platform and see if it's useful to them.

30 Free Keyword Searches is not new at all. What we've actually done is opened up both Alphabet Soup search AND SiteRank for Free accounts, which was not even available before this update. You're now getting much more as a Free user than before this update.

I hope that I've been able to clear things up that on all levels of Jaaxy, folks get much more than they did in Jaaxy 2.0.

Curiosity strikes - is the affiliate program being upgraded too or will commissions remain at $9? when the price increases/

I believe that what Loes is saying (I may be wrong) is that new members get their 30 free searches early on in their new career as an affiliate marketer. They have, and use, those searches at a point in time when they basically have little or nothing to search FOR. By the time they have decent content on their sites, their searches have all been used and they won't go back to sign up for a Pro account.

The suggestion is to let them continue to have searches (15/ month) for a longer period so that they can actually see some results with them.

Good point Craig, I'm seeing people knock Jaaxy in these post comments but I'm wondering how many people have really used it fully, a bit like your point on training. The guys who develop Jaaxy and the superaffiliates see the potential with it, but there's a bit of a disconnect with the wider audience imo

When I see who is using this tool and the level they are at in affiliate marketing there's no way I'm going to throw stones at it from a distance, I can't wait to take this thing for a test drive, but yeah, it probably takes knowing a little bit first to do that properly

Hi Carson, I know that it's the same as always, I thought then and now that it could be changed in a free option too, and it's quite an amount when you are planning to let the price go up to $49

The Affiliate Program will be updated of course. There are going to be all sorts of interesting and highly beneficial things to members here at WA when we move closer to a price increase.

Kyle Premium
This is hardly a money grab, furthest thing from it. Like everything we do, YOU are in our best interest and this will be more than evident as we move forward with updates and integration.
Reply
CraigW315 Premium
I personally don't see it as a money grab. I mean, the work that goes into it warrants an increase. Though I admit, the amount it's increasing by surprised me...

Anyhow, more concerning to me is whether this also heralds an increase for WA as a whole?
Reply
Kyle Premium
And anyone that is using Jaaxy already, will not be subject to this increase.

And NO, you will not be subject to an increase at WA, nobody will. We have no intentions or plans on raising the prices for the membership here so you can rest easy in that respect.

To me it looks like more things have been added to make you have to pay for an upgrade to Enterprise. For starters, you can only now see a portion of the Site Rank history of previous scans and have to pay for an upgrade to see more. Before on Pro you could see all your Site Rank search history. Plus, the limit on Site Rank searches you can do per month with the new credit system. You used to be able to do as many searches as you like.

Is there now also a limit on how much keyword research you can do per month on the Pro membership?

I don't think these are improvements. The platform is harder to look at than the previous one, the text is all over the place, and the price increase for new Jaaxy members is way to high in comparison to other tools out there on the market.

I already think the current prices are too high for what this tool does, and it's not even very accurate much of the time. You can perform the exact same keyword search twice in a row and receive two completely different results.

I think I might look for a different keyword tool. One of my pet hates is paying for a service, only to then have that service restricted unless I'm willing to pay even more for it.

Hi Darren, it's clear the the "SiteRank scan" aspect has been misunderstood and I'll update the blog post to be more clear. Keyword Searches are unchanged, they are Unlimited for Pro and Enterprise.

SiteRank scans, because of the automated aspect, are limited, but you can watch 100's of keywords and domain combinations with a Pro level account that is only $19/month. Enterprise is only $49 and you can watch even more, and scan everyday if you want that granularity of results.

2,000 SiteRank scans, plus Unlimited Keyword searches for $19 a month is a great value and I think that as you use the platform you will realize that that's a lot of scans for keyword/domain combinations to see where you are ranking.

when I looked at prices for all the other pro version tools out there Jaaxy was coming in way underpriced, and someone in this thread had actually quoted those prices as being more than Jaaxy.

It looks to me you misunderstood pricing, and the limitations. I think in writing everything on the internet I'd like to see people back stuff up with examples, as this sort of 'review' is a trend and can do damage when people do it on their websites.

It's probably a really positive thing to have a thread like this where people can share their views and interpretations and clear up misunderstandings.

The update that we have just made offers MORE, not less. It is the same price, I am confused as to why there is the argument that somehow this is limited.

The new platform offers users of Jaaxy WAY more speed, technology and new features that it ever has.

Oh my gosh Carson, the new Jaaxy looks INCREDIBLE! I love the improvements that you and the team have done to it and it makes me so incredibly happy that you've added Bing and Yahoo to see what our rankings are on those search engines!

I definitely understand the reasoning for the price increases, but thank you so much for keeping those of us that are already subscribed to Jaaxy on the Pro and Enterprise levels, locked into the current price models. That was definitely a sigh of relief for me! Thank you so much for these wonderful updates and changes that you've done to Jaaxy.

Hey Brian, glad you are loving the new updates, I'm loving using the live platform now vs the development platform that I've had the opportunity to use in the background for a few months now!

We've been live for just over 24 hours now with Jaaxy 3.0 and we've worked out a number of small kinks here and there...I think we're off to the races now, thanks for your feedback!

I would not say that necessarily. Yes, it's undeniable that Google rules the roost in this realm, but there is a little bit of traffic that does come from Bing and Yahoo and has actually been helping with my AdSense revenue so I'll take that tiny amount.

35% of the overall desktop searches are useless. They are incredibly important and if you can rank in Bing/Yahoo you can drive a full time income and FAR beyond.

I agree that Google is the biggest deal in terms of SERPs, but the Big 3 should not be understated. There is LOTS of people using Bing & Yahoo.

It definitely should not be overlooked and this has been on the request list by many Jaaxy users for quite some time.
