Here’s the deal:
You want a competition analysis tool so that you can:
- Analyse what keywords they are ranking for
- What pages drive the most traffic to them
- How many keywords they rank for
- How they use PPC
- How Many DoFollow Backlinks they have (and from where are they getting it)
- What error they have that you can utilize to outrank them
But the fact is, you are too beginner to invest in a proper premium SEO tool. That’s all right because you don’t really have to.
There is a free SEO tool, actually, a complete SEO tool with premium features you can use for free to keep an eye on your competition(s) and eventually outrank them.
