Competitor website ranking check

Do you know how your website ranks against your competitors?

Discover how your competitors' rankings compare to yours

Internet users usually only visit websites that appear on the first search engine results page, so it is essential that you closely monitor your rank position so you can fix any problems immediately if your ranking goes down, as well as keeping an eye on your competitors' rank positions and how they compare to your own. An SEO specialist will examine ranking data for your website and three of your competitors' to identify any ranking changes or keyword movements in your chosen search engines. We will send you our analysis in a PDF or Excel format.

Why monitor website rankings?

Internet users are extremely sensitive to websites' positions in the search engine results pages (SERPs) and usually only visit those that rank near the top of the first SERP. Sometimes changes to the search engine algorithms or changes made on-site can cause a website's ranking to go up or down. It is therefore very important to keep a close eye on your rankings and those of your competitors so that you can act immediately if your website starts to be outranked by your competitors for your target keywords.

An SEO specialist will examine ranking data to identify if any changes have taken place to your and three of your competitors' rankings since the last check-point or baseline. The report calculates the visibility score by calculating the percentage of keywords ranking vs. the total number of keywords. They will compare rankings of a particular set of keywords for as many search engines as specified by you.

This report will allow you to monitor any changes in ranking and associate them with changes in the website, search engines, market etc.

The report can be run as a one-off to establish a benchmark on a particular set of keywords or can be ordered on an on-going basis. Monthly or quarterly updates are recommended.

How website ranking checks work

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the service and is the foundation for all our quality checks.

We will need to know the following information:

  • the URLs that are going to be monitored – yours and three competitors' URLs
  • up to 50 target keywords
  • search engines to follow up (Google, Yahoo, Naver etc.)

An SEO specialist will examine the ranking data and review if there have been any changes in average rank, significant keyword movements or changes to ranked URLs since the previous reporting period or baseline.
