    Just as the tittle says, I want to learn what my competitors are targeting so I can go after the same things.

    What is the best way to find this out?

    Check their meta tags for their keywords. Can check their backlinks in majestic or ahrefs too, can get an idea of their anchor texts

    Also, most of the time they will have the keyword in their URL of the article or page.

    Is anyone using seo spyglass? I am, but I wonder how it compares to others.. Seems as if it isn't up to date on my own sites.

    Do a backlink check and see what the anchor texts are.

    use semrush, BacklinkWatch and linkdex to get competitor links. Last one is best in my opinion!

    You can check meta data by using seo quake and also check competitor backlink.

    What do you guys think of the SEO PowerSuite (SEO Spyglass)? How does it compare to these other sites/programs that keep getting brought up?

    Nope... For spying on your competitors Keywords, Ranks, Traffic then Semrush is the way :) .. I even I use the free version and get like 10 keywrods

    For people asking about SEO Spyglass. I like link assistant whole package and use it all the time. I even love link assistant. However it's database is the worst among other

    - Ahrefs : are the best and shows like 10% of the backlinks :D
    - Majestic Seo : 7% and this is why I like Market Samurai
    - SEOMOZ : 7%
    - Raven : 6.5%
    - Spyglass : 3%

    These results when comparing with Google Analytic tool and how many links it sees to the site
    Its just figures however for smaller site the percentage might be different
    these results from a case study created by mathew on a site that has 500K backlinks seen by google :)

    I still love SEO Spyglass and link assistant company. But if you are investing in a backlink extractor service. Then Ahrefs is the way to go.

    Hope this helps
