    I'm quite tired at the moment so I may have overlooked something but I'm trying to find out if a site has 301 redirects going to it..

    I'm analysing a niche that I KNOW is high competition - it's one of those standard industry niches like 'car insurance' or w/e.

    Anyway I've just analysed the top competitor and he's only got 1k backlinks. After further analysis most of these links are junk and have unrelated anchor text (with no variation pretty much)

    So I'm a bit confused as to why this guy is ranking here.. His domain name has nothing to do with the niche.. his linking profile is poor..

    So I've come to the conclusion that he may be using 301 redirects or something and is getting the juice from that..

    How can I verify this?

    Thanks
