A few months ago Beanstalk published a couple articles on SEO competition analysis. In these articles we covered both the onsite and offsite considerations that a webmaster or SEO must make and provided information on the tools you can use to help speed up the process.
A recent article on the ISEDB website provides further discussion on this very important topic and makes our “recommended reading” list. The article titled, “Demystifying Your Competitor’s Ranking Successes” was written by veteran SEO Ross Dunn. The article covers the onsite and offiste factors and includes links to some useful tools as well.
