    Ok, so I had many successes with ranking to top 3 on G, but I also observe than it's easy to be outranked by someone who made a goal out of beating you up :)
    So, I would like to learn the art of reverse engineering competitors.

    - What tools do you use?
    - what is the fastest process?

    Here is an example of one of my competitors (he beats me not on the main domain that looks fine to me) but on some deep pages that look awfully spamy - full of text ads! And i have no idea how as no links seem to point to that particular page.

    Here is the site an example of the page (not my keywords, but similar template):

    Anybody up for challenge?

    If you want to beat the shit out of a competitor, why not just spam a shitload of links with the anchor text "Free XXX", I doubt it will help the kid.

    * Use seo quake plugin for firefox to get lots of data (including keywords for PPC)
    Trace where that site get links.

    * Use donofollow plugin to see what links are no-follow

    I use seo quake plugin, but it can only analyse 1000 links.

    What can YOU see when looking on specified page?
