Identify Your Top 5 Competitors

You’ll want to see which competitors rank the highest in Google for keywords specific to your industry. Make a list of the top keywords that bring you traffic, and enter them into Google. If you don’t have an ecommerce store yet and are doing pre-launch research, simply search for relevant keywords. Make sure you’re browsing incognito and you’re in the appropriate regional zone (if you want US search results and you’re outside the US add &gl=us to the end of the search URL). Make note of who is ranking on the first page. You should also type “related:www.yourURL.com” in the Google search field to get a list of companies that are similar to yours. http://ow.ly/e7Pa307vKwA
