Competitor Research by Chris Hanna SEO

Step 1. Find Your Competitors

You might be aware of who your top rivals are, or you might not. You may have direct competitors in the real world (like competing stores), but your rivals in the search results may be completely different websites.

The first step of my competitor analysis is to find who your real competitors are. I can analyse competitors you want me to target, along with others I find through my own analysis.

Step 2. Find Keyword & Content Gaps

Next, I find where you’re lacking in terms of keywords and content compared to your top competitors. I use various tools for this (like Semrush), but I also manually dig deep into both your website and those of your competitors.

This lets me see what they have that you’re missing, and where you can leapfrog them in the search results for terms they’re not yet targeting.¬†

Step 3. Find Backlink Gaps

Along with keyword and content gaps, I’ll also analyse your competitors’ backlink profiles. This will help you understand why they’re outranking you, while also showing you where you should focus your link building efforts.

I will help you form strategies to create content that gets more backlinks, and I can also provide advice for creating outreach campaigns that get results.

Step 4. Provide an Action Plan

Putting this all together results in an action plan designed to help you catch up with and overtake your rivals in the search results. I’ll guide you on your way to creating winning keyword, content, and backlinking strategies.

This is a long-term plan, but with the right foundations (and by working with the right SEO expert), you can work your way to the top of the search results.
