# 1: Core-Deep Competitive Link Research
Today SEO SpyGlass from the SEO PowerSuite pack becomes the richest source of backlinks — offering you the most extensive — and actionable — list of competitors' links to be found.
It's no secret that competitive backlink research is one of the most effective ways to hunt for links. You look into your competitor's link profile, see where their links come from and steal some of that link pie.
So the only question is: How do you find where your competition gets their links?
Backlinks and backlink checkers
Yahoo Site Explorer, which used to be the source of links for all us SEOs for years, is now passing away. It would never let you check more than 1,000 links (though a specific technology in SEO SpyGlass allowed fishing Site Explorer for more). And now that Bing is powering Yahoo! search, pretty soon SEO SpyGlass-less SEOs won't have access even to this measly thousand.
And while Internet Marketing forums are swarming with questions like “Where are we going to find links when Yahoo kicks the bucket?”, you're already on a higher step of the SEO progress ladder.
That's because, with your SEO SpyGlass tool you'll now be checking links in Blekko — the search engine which is amazingly young but impressively powerful in backlink research.
This SEO monster is already providing you
- Thousands of backlinks
- they're live and active (Blekko tries to evade used-to-be and error 404 links)
- and they're all fresh and newly-found
Now follow the thought: Blekko alone is great but for best and faster rankings you still need more. That's why you're on the winning side with SEO SpyGlass. It puts together the Blekko backlink monster, as well as hundreds of other search engines. One mouseclick and a few minutes' wait — and you get a huge, nowhere-else-to-be-found list of backlinks. Want numbers? OK... So we took SEO SpyGlass and checked links in Blekko and a few US search engines (only part of the 999 supported search engines).
In SEO SpyGlass a sample site www.techcrunch.com got us 17,138 links in 11 min 24 seconds.
For www.realestate.com SEO SpyGlass came up with 6409 links. Time: 3min 58 sec.
And www.gizmodo.com got us 18,946 links in 11 min 55 seconds.
Your links are of top quality
As if being the biggest source of live links is not enough, SEO SpyGlass has more to add: link quality check.
So that you can head your link building efforts in the most fruitful and promising direction, SEO SpyGlass will examine the quality of each link. Think of it: you'll get your actionable competition-smashing backlink report neatly arranged, all links in the order of importance, cream first.
Here's a screenshot of a sample SEO SpyGlass project for fender.com
As you can see, SEO SpyGlass lets you easily analyze the backlinks, linking pages and domains. You can sort and filter the backlinks according to virtually any SEO factor in the book:
- Google PageRank of the linking domain and the linking page
- Links coming from same domain (aka site-wide links)
- Anchor text (or alt text for image links)
- Links from .edu, .org and dot-your-favorite-tld sites
- Link value, cache data in Google, Yahoo and Bing that is
- You name it...
SEO SpyGlass supports around 40 SEO factors that you can check for every backlink: from traffic ranks like Alexa and Compete to mentions on Twitter, StumbleUpon and other social media sites. You can hunt links from high PR webpages or domain. You can look at potential ad placements to generate traffic and sales. You can analyze mentions of your competitors in viral content. In short you can take instant action on this data.
Note: if you're already using SEO SpyGlass, you need to restart the tool for auto-update and turn on Blekko and other search engines in Preferences — > Preferred Search Engines.
And the best part is — your backlink list is renewable. As long as other sites build new links you'll always have fresh link sources at your disposal, all inside your SEO SpyGlass project.
Looks like a chance to secure yourself a sweet spot in search results. So don't miss this one, get yourself the freshly updated SEO PowerSuite.
#2 Tracking yours and competitors' website rankings side by side
When you're running to outrank your competitors, the Rank Tracker tool will control the race.
Now you can easily monitor rankings for multiple sites within one project — and promptly compare the results. This way, you can benchmark your site against the competitors or monitor rankings for several websites you optimize for the same keyword niche.
Some nice details on what's new in rank tracking
Now for each Rank Tracker's project, you can add a number of websites to track their search engine rankings and set them against each other. And that's smashing news, because now you can:
- Identify where exactly your competitors rank for your targeted keywords in any of 700+ supported search engines
- Compare your website's rankings to your main competitors to benchmark your search engine presence and the effectiveness of your SEO efforts
- Track the historical changes in the competitive landscape of your keyword niche
- Be aware of what your competitors are up to and launch your counter-attacks in time to dampen their chances to succeed
- Keep track of the SEO progress of a number of websites you're optimizing for the same keywords
