What’s Included in a Competitor Analysis


Search Visibility Comparison

We perform a detailed analysis of your search visibility in comparison to your competitors. This assessment highlights how easy it is to find you for relevant searches when compared to your competitors. This provides insights into areas where you can improve to outperform your competition.


Top Performing Keyword Overview

By examining the keywords that drive the most traffic and conversions for your competitors, we identify valuable keyword opportunities for your own SEO strategy. This information guides your content and optimisation efforts to target the most relevant and lucrative keywords.



Top Pages or Products

We analyse your competitors’ websites to identify their top-performing pages or products. This insight helps you understand which specific content or offerings resonate the most with their audience, enabling you to prioritise similar content or products and tailor your strategy for improved user engagement and conversions.


Content Gap Analysis

Our content gap analysis identifies areas where your website lacks content or fails to address specific user queries. By pinpointing these gaps in comparison to your competitors, we help you tailor your content strategy to capture a broader audience and improve your site’s overall authority and relevance.


PPC Overview

 We provide a comprehensive view of your competitors’ paid advertising efforts, shedding light on the platforms they use, their ad copy strategies, and the keywords they target. This analysis enables you to refine your PPC campaigns for maximum effectiveness.


PPC Spend Insights

 Understanding your competitors’ ad spend patterns and budget allocations allows you to optimise your own paid advertising budget. You can allocate resources more efficiently and strategically to achieve a higher ROI.


Links and Domain Metric Comparison

By comparing the quality and quantity of backlinks and domain metrics, we identify areas where you can strengthen your website’s authority and improve your search engine rankings. This analysis ensures your link-building efforts are targeted and effective.


Page Speed Analysis

We evaluate the speed and performance of your website and those of your competitors. This assessment helps you identify potential issues that may be affecting your user experience, ensuring that your website loads quickly and efficiently.


Structured Markup Insights

Understanding how your competitors implement structured markup provides insights into opportunities for enhancing the visibility and appearance of your website in search results, particularly through rich snippets and structured data.


Social Comparison

By assessing your social media presence in comparison to competitors, we help you identify strategies that can improve your engagement, expand your social reach, and build a more active online community. We uncover the content types that provide the highest levels of engagement and conversions. 


Domain Health Analysis

We look at the domain health of your competitors and compare each section to yours. Small technical issues can have a big effect on rankings and website performance, so doing this analysis allows us to pinpoint any areas that need improvement.


Market Positioning

 Following the competitor analysis process, we can position you within your industry. This allows us to benchmark you against competitors and track progress throughout the optimisation process.

Our research phase for data-driven results

We can provide you with a competitor analysis as a one-off service or as an integral part of our SEO and digital marketing retainers. Our tailored approach to research is designed to provide comprehensive insights.

Furthermore, we understand that sometimes, a single-channel analysis might be more aligned with your requirements. We offer the flexibility to focus on specific areas, such as just social media or PPC. Each competitor analysis is conducted by one of our digital marketing specialists, delivering written analysis and actionable insights to guide your strategic decisions.

For a more robust approach, our competitor analysis can be seamlessly combined with other research offerings like website audits or keyword research, ensuring your digital marketing strategy is data-driven, competitive, and primed for success.
