Sounds impossible but can we estimate how much others are earning by their hop links?
i dont know surely about hoplink.
But if you want to check the earnings of website in estimate.
You can use http://www.priceofweb.com/www.yourcompetitorsite.com
Hope this helps
If your competitor is ranking top in Google for the keyword you are competing against I use the following method. Figures are rough but it should give you an idea and if you use the same method across different sites you can at least get a gage of what kinda ballpark money we are looking at.
I like to look at my competitors site on reverse internet, which has a little compete graph. I take his average monthly clicks. I check them against the top 5 keywords he is using in Google Keyword Tool, just to see how much he could or should be getting. I then look at what kind of offers he is using and use rough figure i have gained from experience. Of course I will look at the site first and see if he looks like he knows what his doing. If he does, for Clickbank, CJ and other digital type products I assume about 1 sale every hundred clicks(1% CR). If it an amazon type product, i assume about a 12% CR or Conversion Rate. I don't know about CPA offers as I don't use them. If you are getting different conversion rates in your niche and you think your competitor should be doing the same (I have heard some niches conver 1 in 5 hops) then apply your figures instead. Also factor in that a 30% CTR or click through rate(Click through to the offer). Again if in your niche you have different click through rates then use this. Of Course you multiply this by CPS(Commission Per Sale)
So For Clickbank Type:
Hits x CTR(0.3) x Conversion Rate x CR(0.01) x CPS
For Amazon Type:
Hits x CTR(0.3) x Conversion Rate x CR(0.12) x CPS
Again if you are getting different results in your Niche and you think your comp is doing roughly the same then adjust the equation closer to your metrics.
I will shorten your formula little bit , think about it :
------------------ x (Your earning)
Search for the product or domain name many webmasters talk about their earnings in public webmaster forums. Then from there on just read every past post they've made
The easiest solution. To get a better estimate you must know how they are getting their traffic, if it is targeted, how it is monetized, and are their ads etc relevant to what their site is about.
I have a site that I was promoting well to a very specific niche and the traffic was very targeted which gave me a great conversion rate. The site mentioned above was way off on the traffic and the income from that site. I understand that it is a generalization and that is about as close as you are going to get unless they open their books or are bragging numbers on forums.
