Since its initial release over 8 years ago, Micro Niche Finder has been a data "scraping" application.  The data Micro Niche Finder provides is not available anywhere, except from within a set of tools/websites created and managed by Google.

In order to retrieve the data needed by Micro Niche Finder to provide the best possible keyword research available, Micro Niche Finder has to "scrape" the tools/websites owned by Google.

"Scraping" is a violation of the Terms of Use of Google (and many other) sites, and most data providers on the internet have continued to fight scraping with increased sophistication, while still allowing users to access the providers' properties in violation of their respective Terms of Use without penalty.

We believe there will be a time when Google and other data providers will begin to penalize violators of their Terms of Use.

Due to the changing landscape, and our desire as a company to no longer participate in data "scraping", we will no longer provide support for Micro Niche Finder after December 31, 2015.  

Today we are officially announcing the End-Of-Life for Micro Niche Finder.

We released a final update for Micro Niche Finder (Version 5.8.5) on October 18, 2015. You can download the final release by clicking Options on the ribbon, then select Check for Program Updates.  There will be no further fixes, updates or enhancements to Micro Niche Finder 5.8.5.

Please note: If a Google change occurs that disables the ability of Micro Niche Finder to retrieve data before December 31, 2015, support for Micro Niche Finder will cease on that date.  

We thank you for the confidence you have placed in our company and our flagship product, and we hope you will continue to partner with us now and in the future.
