This lesson is devoted to the analysis of the competition on the first page of the issue of your chosen phrase. It is no secret that even in narrow niches, where there are only ten thousand competitors, monsters such as Wikipedia , Amazon , About can be found out. com , EzineArticles and other reputable sites, and going around them will be very difficult. If last year we determined competition in the niche by eye, now the machine will help us, namely the program Market Samurai , which a day earlier helped us decide on the choice of key phrases. (If you have not downloaded and installed the program yet, register on the ThirtyDayChallenge.com website and from there follow the link to the Samurai website.)
Run the program and open the project. If you want to analyze a specific phrase (for example, the one that you found during market research), you can simply add it as a bookmark.
Type the phrase on the empty line and press the Update button. After that you will see it in a new tab.
Now, to analyze the top issue, select the section SEO Competition
click on the button Generate Results
and wait for Market Samurai to process the data.
After a few minutes (depending on the speed of connection to the Internet), you will get this picture (if empty cells remain, run the competition analysis again):
The picture speaks for itself. Green - go, red - stop, yellow - think what to do next.
Sites and pages of competitors are clickable, so if you want to see with whom specifically you have to compete, just click on the link and it will immediately open in your browser.
You can also view PR pages that link to the site. To do this, click on the blue triangle to the right of the URL of the site and press the PR Analysis button.
There you can also find out the anchor of these backlinks, as well as whois information, data from Quantcast and Google website traffic trends.
For the sake of fairness, I should note that PR analysis did not work for me, how many times I did not run it. I wrote a ticket about this, I hope the guys will understand. On the “marathon” video, this feature works fine.
Added after 15 minutes: The support has already been answered. It turns out the problem may be in a temporary IP bath from Google. I had that. Magic Tablet - Hot Spot Shield program.The same program solves other problems related to the ban from Google and the dependence of the analysis results on your IP (the program can send you data for the country in which you live, but you don’t need this at all 🙂).
These are the results of the analysis I got (this is the 10th site in the issue):
According to Po Ba Sommerville (one of Ed’s companions and the author of this video) should not abuse PR analysis, because even two or three hundred links the program will process up to 10 minutes or more. By and large, you only need this feature in order to see what you need to do to catch up and overtake a specific competitor.
As for whether it is worth working in a niche or not, you will have to make the decision yourself. If you see that you won't be able to get into the top ten (you do not have enough knowledge, experience, anything else), look for micronishi, where there are more green cells. Anyway, you will find something, a niche around like rubbish 😉
Naturally, you can get all this data without Samurai. The Seo For Firefox and Link Diagnosis plugins are more than enough. Here the advantage of the Samurai is only that he saves time and gives a visual picture.
