    Ok I want this thread to be 100% about how to find out EXACTLY what the competitor is doing!!.
    The methods and ways you find out how theyre getting traffic building links, high conversions.
    EVERYTHING possible about researching the competitor!

    My two cents:
    A fellow BH'er created a tool that researches a lot of info on any domain you put in its located at
    HTML:
    http://www.push2check.com
    My needs:
    Im looking for a way to trach traffic on a competitors domain, kinda like a public google analytics, to find out where the traffic is comming from.
    If they have google analytics can i find out their traffic info if i have the analytics code as its embeded on their site?

    Basically I want to stalk and copy!

    Compete.com - accurate way to judge traffic
    Alexa.com - useful info about a site (assuming it is over 3 months old)
    Backlinkwatch.com - view competitors backlinks

    SEO Spyglass - Easily the most comprehensive backlink checking tool around. I analyse all of my competitors with it before going after a keyword.

    Is SEO Spyglass based on Yahoo Site Explorer too? Because afaik most backlink tools are based on yahoo site explorer so why use them if you can just use yahoo SE
