March was a busy month for Marketing Miner, as we have released new competitor analysis features and organized a free virtual conference SEO4Life with an excellent line-up of search experts.
New features in March 2020
Competitor Analysis in Projects
The long-awaited position comparison with the competitors is finally here! You should now be able to see the Competition section for all your projects. All you have to do is to fill in competitors’ domains to be able to compare your results.
In terms of analysis, you can filter out tracked keywords to see if you're ranking higher than your competitors for different search queries.
HINT: You can see an example of the Competition section here: https://www.marketingminer.com/en/project/9f9f7c8d-b0a9-47e5-a18d-560dce444623/competitors
How to conduct your Competitor Analysis
Get started by clicking the Competition in the Project menu section.
Next, click the Competitors settings button at the top right of the screen.
Add all competitors’ domains you would like to compare. Please be sure to enter the domain without "www" or "https://".
Don’t forget to save changes to add all domains to your competition analysis to see results.
HINT: You can edit your competitor domain in the Settings section anytime you want.
Competitor analysis with one-time rank tracking
We also updated the SERP position miner (One-time rank tracking) where you can add and analyse your competitors. In the Miner section, click on the Advanced settings button to add up to five competitor domains.
