    Hi is there is any way to find out what focus keyword a competitor is using on yoast? or rather what keyword phrase the competitor is mainly ranking for?

    Semrush or Ahrefs report will give you this type of information.
    @theRevolt is doing Semrush reports, @Wolfgar sells Ahrefs ones.

    I would normally say semrush but ahrefs is improving fast on this competitor analysis lately, you can even use the free quota on ahrefs for some basic research.

    Interesting, this might be worth a small case study. I never really looked to AHrefs as ongoing the limits are just so low and quite pricey compared to other ones. I might look into a 7-day trial and test it within the next few weeks.
    Have you tested sites in different verticals and countries to see if it just applies to certain niches or it's really a larger trend that ahrefs just now has more data than SEMRush?

    Good question, I don't know if their data is as good for every niche. There may be specific niches where one is better than the other.

    I don't know that they have more data than semrush, just that a couple years ago semrush was alone in this area and now ahrefs is also offering a great tool and is improving fast IMO. but I don't have any tie to either tool, semrush is still a top notch tool

    Yeah, I hear you, I remember looking at SPyfu vs SEMRush and it was a clear win for SEMRush so just curious. Agreed, SEMRush is still great, especially for the price and limits.

    You can try semrush or Ahrefs tools finding the competitors focus keyword. From the Personal Experience, semrush is one of the best
