  5. Hello Ankit !

    These tools are awesome . But the problem is that these tools can be useful only as a pro version . The free version do not provides much data .
    Thus these tools wont be helpful for new blogger who do not have any budget .
    Thus please write a post mentioning some free ways by which newbie bloggers can also spy on their competitors for free .

    Keep producing such wonderful content !

    Happy blogging

  6. Thank you for this very complete tutorial. I just checked out spyfu and it has very comprehensive data, even on the free version.

  7. Again a great post from you Ankit!

    Keeping an eye on competitor’s keywords is essential in blogging. I aware about checking the KWs we rank for through Google Webmaster and Analytics. I know that it can also be done with Opensiteexplorer.com and yes, I have Moz account.

    But Spyfu tool is new to me, I’ll have a look on it. Good to see that you’re using a content locker to grab more social cues. I use Alexa as you said but unaware of SimilarWeb.

    Thanks for presenting an helpful post for us. Keep doing the same, have a good day!

      Hello Sherman,

      Welcome to my blog.

      Finding the right keywords is the game. Find potential keywords, write awesome content that is worth sharing and linking, promote it massively and you are done. Your ranking and traffic will automatically increase with time. This is what I follow all the time.

      Yes, I also use SEMrush and Buzzsumo. Both the tools are so awesome and we can easily leverage them for our benefits.

      Thanks for reading the article and commenting on it. I appreciate your presence here. 🙂

  17. Hi Ankit,

    These tips are powerful ways to find out the keywords of our competitors, step by step guide is excellent in explaining the message, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post, I too use SEMrush and Google planner for keyword research but I never heard of Spyfu, thanks for sharing the information, see you soon.

  18. Hi Ankit,

    Loved the post title, it drew me in to read.

    BTW, I really like the way your Blog site is laid out. It’s got clean lines and a great readable font. Awesome.

    Like so many others, I’m always curious about what Keywords the competition is ranking for and why (if I can figure that out).

    You’ve provided great details on how to use Google Analytics and/or GWM tools to check keywords a site is ranking for. The screen grabs are really readable and well documented as well.

    How to Check Competitors’ Keywords was nicely explained. I’ve been using Open site explorer for some time now and I’m pretty happy with the results delivered.

    I’ve often noticed that while SEM Rush is a recommended tool to use, it used to give a whole lot of problems, including Google getting annoyed with its use on occasion. This is why I discontinued to use SEM Rush. I wonder if those issues have been resolved? I shall take another look at SEM Rush immediately.

    Spyfu is really great for checking out competitor site information, including keywords. While Spyfu seems a tad costly the value that it delivers in return if used properly can have the most awesome effect on boosting the SERP ranking of your website as well as affiliate income.

    You have beautifully rounded up this post by explaining what to do after getting access to interesting keywords list. There is a ton of real valuable content here Ankit. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Thanks for sharing another lucrative online tool which is very useful for finding your competitors keywords.

  24. Hi Ankit,

    Please answer

  25. Dear Sir, Good Info overall and useful too.
    I have been using Opensiteexplorer free version since new to this blogging Industry.

    Your post has helped me out to find some essential keywords as per competitive search tutorials on Google Analytics.

    Can you post an upcoming article in detail on finding competitors keywords – either “free” or “low-cost paid” tools so that it can be helpful for new bloggers like me.

    Thank You !

  26. So far good. But we need more about free tools information – because for paid one we get directly help from them.

  27. Why would you need to check it again on Google Keyword Planner to check the search volume? SEMRUSH already did it for you, and you can check it again on SEMRUSH? Also, nowdays Keyword Planner won’t show exact monthly search, only a ranged volume, unless you’re a big advertiser. Is this article outdated?
