Get Your Competitor’s Web Traffic Data


Different tools to help you with your competitive website data analysis


Get your competitor's web traffic data

In an earlier post SWOT analysis for your website, I mentioned the four elements of your SWOT analysis include identifying your website strength (S), uncovering your its weaknesses (W), identifying opportunities (O) for the site and uncovering threats (T) against it. While a decent web analytics application like Google Analytics can help you get insight into your own website S and W elements, what and how can you know about your competitor’s web performance in order to make your SWOT analysis more complete? I emphasized “web performance” as opposed to other general information that you can obtain by browsing your competitors’ websites. Below are some tools to help you get some idea about your competitors’ website performance.

Google Places - Wrong descriptive terms

Google Places has been around for quite some time. Since my first post about how to use Google Places to your local business advantage, there have been questions regarding the accuracy of the information displayed under the “At a Glance” section on the Google Places page. For many people/websites, the descriptive terms are insufficient; for others, they are inaccurate and sometimes to the point of providing incorrect information that the owners have never provided while listing their businesses on Google Places.

Brief overview of Google Analytics tracking code and how to set it up properly


Google analytics tracking code

Google Analytics (GA) is a web analytics tool that works based on the page tagging method. To set up Google Analytics on your website, you need to tag individual web page with the tracking code (written in Javascript). When a tagged web page is open in the web browser, the tracking code is triggered and begins to collect web traffic data. The tracking code, thus, is the center of Google Analytics. Properly installing it on your site will be the first essential step in using this application.
