    Hey everybody

    I'm looking for tools to gather as much information about my competition as possible. I'm running an ecommerce store, and since I've read Sun Tzu's Art of War (about 4 times now... 5th time comes tonight! :D) I understood that gathering as much information about my biggest competitors is crucial.

    So, what tools or tricks or whatever are you using to gather which information?

    I'm particularly interested in Ad histories including how much they spend etc. I think I had a software a few years back which could give me the timeline of about 6 months back from competitors, but I don't think this works anymore.

    So, how do you spy on your competition? Also, which information have been very helpful to your decision making so far?

    What I got for gathering information:
    PageRank Status (Chome SEO Toolbar)
    Backlinkminer for finding juicy links (love it!)
    alexa

    Well, that's about it. So, you see...I don't even have enough in the slightest.

    Thank you very much for every help in advance!

    warm regards,
    Michael Stieger
