  1. Perfect timing thanks – have been looking at various tools , Raven was one of them, and just seen that powersuite have a discount option on for a couple of days – means I can get everything for 160 bucks – merry christmas indeed

  2. I am a Raven user and have been for a while so the removal of the Google API is somewhat disappointing – I not sure what alternative they have if any. So I have made the switch, there is an interesting discussion on LinkedIn – you need to be a member of the Grooup to read it though

  3. After lots (and lots) of research – comparing the various  main competitors in the SEO space – it came down to 2 players. We read a comparison review – and then tested the findings – after this – we signed up for the complete package.  That was almost a month ago – we figured we have 30 days money back anyway – today was day 31.  We wont be asking for a refund – period.  For anyone thinking about using powersuite – download the software – watch the videos – and see how you get on –  no brainer.
