I have been sizing up the competition in various niches and in the process, I have found myself in the throes of informational overload. I go on a quest to find a nice PR-checking plugin for chrome and finish with a toolbar that looks more like a stock ticker than anything else.
There are numbers for everything:
Number of IBL (page)
Number of IBL (domain)
Number of IBL from .edu/.gov
Number of Google Indexed Pages
Keywords in Domain Name
Keywords in URL
Keywords in Meta
Keywords in Description
I even downloaded an evaluation copy of Market Samurai to help me make sense of all of it, and it's great, but I'm still left wondering "can I beat this site?"
Which is/are the most important?
Which carry the most weight?
Which stats should I pay less attention to and which should I really watch out for?
Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I have watched the tutorials on the Market Samurai site, however, as with most examples, they use extreme cases (e.g. Golf vs. Ladies Driver).
This leaves me wondering how to evaluate more subtle differences in competition....
