Free 90 days of Moz's Pro SEO tools.

thumbnailBusiness can be a lot like an Olympic race; being world class isn't good enough, to be successful you have to out-perform your competitors.

Nowhere is that more true than search engine optimization, when results are quite literally about your position in a league table. You simply cannot win by focusing exclusively on your own site, you have to know what your competitors are doing.

One of our favorite ways of staying on top of the competition is Moz — you may know it by its old name SEOMoz — but it's still the indispensable tool that it's always been. Moz gives you the ability to treat SEO like the competition it is, to monitor your rivals, learn when you're gaining on them, when you're slipping back, and when you're leaving them in your wake.

Competitor analysis

Have you looked at a competitor and thought, "How are they doing so well?". With Moz you don't need to wonder anymore, competitor analytics show you exactly what your rivals are doing, how they're being picked up and what you can do to match, and even exceed them. Of course, knowing how your site is performing is only half the battle, if you want to address problems — or avoid creating new ones — you need to know the why as well. Moz has several tools to automatically assess your site and score you on your SEO effectiveness.

Link Research & Analysis

Link Research & Analysis lets you inspect your competitor's links, and social data. If they're doing it, and succeeding as a result, you need to start doing it to.

Open Site Explorer

Open Site Explorer will track your backlinks, as well as your competitors. An influential blog driving traffic to your competitor? Discover the link, check what their interest is, and approach them yourself.

Fresh Web Explorer

As well as backlinks, it's important to spot any other mentions. Social Media can be a minefield for many brands, with many users trolling behind your back; Fresh Web Explorer shows you all mentions, good and bad so you can respond accordingly.


Link analysis

Moz focuses on showing you not just the current state of play, but your performance over time, so you can judge trends, monitor the affects of changes and keep your results moving upwards.

Link analysis helps you keep an eye on your competitor's links and helps you find opportunities to expand your own link range. This is increasingly vital as Google push their emphasis to natural links.

Rank Tracking

How is your site performing on Google right now? How about Bing? Not sure? Then you need Rank Tracking, which will tell you exactly where you are right now.

On-Page Optimization

On-Page Optimization will look at your site and grade it for SEO effectiveness. No more puzzling over the reason you've dropped to page 2.

SEO Web Crawler

How sure are you your site is accessible to crawlers? It's amazing how many sites fall down on the basics, SEO Web Crawler will make sure yours isn't one of them.


Social media monitoring

Analysing social media is easy with Moz too. Watch who's talking about you, and connect with power-users. Do you know the best time of day to tweet? You will with Moz, and that data helps you build lasting relationships for long-term social media success. Most importantly Moz shows you our social media impact in the context of your site.

Twitter Analytics

Twitter Analytics analyses exactly when and who is online of your followers helping you to determine the best time of day to push out new posts. Ensuring that you get the best reception for your hard work.

Campaign Tracking

Campaign Tracking is your one-stop-shop for whole campaigns. It's a place to pull together all of your data and analyse your SEO footprint.
