    Hey aaronjunited,

    There are three things you can look at so here they are:

    1- First, if you are looking how to discover your competitors stratgeis to rank high on google, then a good book to read which I have recently read is "how to get to the top of google". It simply lays SEO in simple terms. it is best selling in the web-marketing department and you can find an updated 2015 version in the UK kindle amazon store. You will find how to analyse you're competitors strategy, see what's working and essentially do it better than them. The writer is a CEO of an SEO company that help small offline and online business to rank high on google. his book is pure value and includes in depth case study analysis of clients he worked with from his own company.

    2 - Second, as I am creating my first product on Niche researching, I have came across a newly released software called "Niche Genetics". Google it and go the sales page, listen to the pitch video and read other reviews of people who used it. maybe check youtube or other sites for reviews. I have not personally used it but heard that it is specifically great for the function it has on analysing your competitions SEO work.

    3- Longtail pro, I am sure you heard of this software and its known in the internet marketing community. Again, I have not yet used the program but people rave about its use and functions to analyse competition SEO.

    Hope this helps, shoot me up if you have any other questions

    Hi Aaron,

    I've created a step-by-step strategy with the different activities and factors to take into consideration:
    -Identify your potential SEO competitors.
    -Validate your SEO competitors, analyse to which degree they are ranked.
    -Compare with your SEO competitors.
    -Select your target keywords.

    You need to do all this manually, as tools will not help you to a great extent.
    If you need any help, you can PM me.

    Regards
    Vinika
