    Keywordspy.com will tell you what PPC keywords he/she is bidding on (if any)

    Alexa.com will give you a rough idea where traffic comes from (SE, direct, referring sites etc).

    Backlinkwatch.com will give you a sample of backlinks they have - so you can see where they get those.

    They are 3 decent free solutions to get you on your way :)

    No worries, you can of course be old school and google them - can sometimes find where they've been mentioned/linked/advertise and then all you need to do is copy :cool:

    aaahhhh uncle WIZZZ

    I just got banned from Maxbounty LOL but I'm not worried.
    it's all about outsourcing now. I'm currently just doing logo design
    for $150 and I have workers doing it for me for $40.

    It's all about the hustle LOL - All I need is 2 per day and I'm at $6k/month
    though I have to admit, i was making pretty good money at maxbounty

    Just got everything settled today

    Speaking of competitors, how id this guy inserting his link into others ads? http://cabestmovers.com/

    He has a lot of backlinks too. He's done it to me but it shows up in my backlinks. What is this guy doing? I might want to copy him.
