How Raven Tools Manage Your Competitor Research

Think of any SEO task you need to do – Raven Tools will take care of it. Today’s feature overview tackles competitor research as an example:

Identify Your Competitors

Research Assistant (powered by SEMRush) helps you to create the list of your competitors by showing you the URLs and domains ranked for the given term.

For any given domain, the tool generates the list of closest competitors as well some related stats. The most useful metrics here are:

  • Common keywords (words where both the your site and your competitor’s site have high rankings in Google);
  • Position quality (which shows who drives the traffic better. If the index is less than 100, it means that the competitor attracts more traffic than the analyzed site.

Identify Your Competitor’s Promoters

Site Finder is the backlink research tool that goes through your competitors’ backlinks and compiles the data into a nice table (which you can export, sort and filter).

Site Finder allows you to enter a keyword phrase and then it automatically finds and ranks domains that link to the top ten Google results for that keyword phrase. It then uses a combination of ranking factors to determine how valuable a link from one of the returned domains would be to your site…

  1. Frankly speaking article is very informative and good but it contains so much content in one post and little bit difficult for a seo newbie like me.I am looking forward few elaborating post on the usage of these tools especially “Identify Your Competitor’s Promoters” one.But your deep knowledge of subject is really respectable.

  2. bigger question. how do you download it? Lots of unnecessary info, but no real info, like how to buy or download this tool. Whoops! Sorry Ann. You're posts are usually very legit (light years beyond Arnold Zafra who just rehashes common info with no real insight or analysis)
