    Hi guys, I have spent about 1 week learning keyword research and getting used to it . Everything is going fine so far but now I m stuck, I have a problem analyzing competition of my keywords. I have read threads on here about keyword research but they require paid tools. If there is a way to do this manually without any tools can someone link me or give me a tutorial?


    Thanks.

    Pick top 3 domain and manually check site relevancy for that keyword, content (indexed pages), domain age, PA/DA (this is a semoz metric), trustflow(majesticseo metric), backlinks (check relevancy and domain/type of links from where these are coming), PageRank, if you find it hard to emulated those site, then competition is hard...
