    I want to know what my competition is ranking for and how much traffic they are getting. Is there any way for me to find this information?

    You can use ahrefs and semrush to get some info on them as to what they are ranking for and what backlinks they have.

    They are not going to be perfect but you'll get a good feel for those aspects.

    You can also combine SEMRush with some data from SimilarWeb for instance. Of course you wont have a super accurate info but still. I mentioned SImilarWen because from SEMRush you dont have referral traffic, social and other channels rather than search.

    Semrush is what you need, there is no better tool. The bad thing is it's paid and it ain't cheap.
