Visibility Analysis – Tools: Competition Analysis
Competition Analysis is a tool which will help you get to know your competition in Google and compare your visibility in search results to your competitors’ visibility. There’re three modes of analysis:
- Common keywords ‒ keywords for which both your website and your competitors’ websites are ranked
- Keywords unique to competitors ‒ keywords for which your competitors’ websites are ranked, but yours isn’t
- Keywords unique to your website ‒ keywords for which your website is ranked, but your competitors’ websites aren’t.
Competition Analysis uses 2.5 million keywords. This means that a list of, for instance, common keywords is based on a limited keyword database. It may happen that a list of common keywords is longer, though the tool failed to show a keyword since it’s not included in Keyword Explorer.
To run an analysis, choose:
- One of the modes
- Websites which positions you want to compare
- Range of positions
As a result, you’ll get a table containing keywords that follow the rule and presenting positions of websites compared.
You may compare more than two websites. To add another one, click Add domain+.
Should you want to analyze a report in Excel, export it in a .csv file:
