    Hello BHW,

    I hope everyone is having a busy week!

    Now to my question...

    Is there a way to view the analytics of a competitor's site?

    I would like to know detailed information on how many visitors a day the site gets to valuable info such as the sources of traffic to the most popular landing page.

    Just wondering if this at all possible.

    I guess this is not possible yet... And if so, to you opinion, what is the most important factor in determining your competitor's strength when looking for some data? No. of backlinks?

    It is possible if someone does not lockdown stats scripts on the server and let them publically. Then you can search for keyword + footprints and can see where competitors get traffic from (site sources and / or keywords).

    Footprint Examples:

    Code:
    /webalizer/usage
    /usage/usage
    /statistik/usage
    /stats/usage
    /stats/daily/
    /stats/monthly/
    /stats/top
    /wusage/
    /logs/awstats.pl
    /webstats/awstats.pl
    /awstats.pl
    inurl:/usage_;103
    inurl:/awstats.pl?lang=;23
    inurl:/awstats.pl?config=;11
    inurl:/awstats.pl?output=;9
    inurl:/awstats.pl?framename=;9
    inurl:/referrers.html;7
    inurl:/referrersbydocument.html;3
    inurl:/awstats.pl?update=;2
    inurl:/awstats.pl?%e;1
    inurl:/awstats.pl;1
    inurl:/referringsites.php;1
    inurl:/awstats.pl?amp;output=;1
    inurl:/awstats.pl?amp;lang=;1
    inurl:/awstats.pl?...&output=;1
    inurl:/webalizer.current;1
    inurl:/xmlrpc.php;1
    inurl:/awstats.pl?year=;1

    Using Alexa may give you some rough estimates on how your competitor is doing.

    SEMRush can do that. It can track your competitor's traffic, keywords and ads.
