SEO Ultimate Version 1.2 Released

SEO Ultimate Version 1.2 Released with New Competitor Research Module

The Competition Researcher comes with a total of 9 tools to help you analyze the competitive landscape of relevant search engine result pages. These tools help you research either the general competition for given keywords, or the websites of specific competitors.

When you install or upgrade to the newly-released SEO Ultimate 1.2, your “SEO” menu will include a new “Comp. Researcher” menu item. Just click the item to open up the Competition Researcher interface. The options are delineated into 3 steps.

The first step is to choose which of the 9 research tools you’d like to use. Each one includes a small snippet explaining which information the tool will help you obtain. Next, based on the tool you chose, you either enter in the keywords you’d like to investigate, or the URLs of competitors’ websites.

The final step is to set additional options if desired to customize the quantity and/or compactness of the search results returned (feel free to experiment to find your preferred settings). Then just click the “Submit” button to open the parameter-modified search query results in a new window (i.e. no illicit scraping/crawling/automation is used). You can study these search results to glean information about the general competition for a keyword or about specific competitors’ websites.

Here are a few of the factors you can investigate with the Competition Researcher:

  • How many webpages are competing for given keywords
  • How many webpages your competitors have indexed
  • What other sites your competitors link to
  • How many incoming links your competitors have
  • Which competing websites have the highest title-tag relevance for given keywords

…and much more.

The Competition Researcher provides an investigation-oriented application of powerful tools from Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Thanks to the direct integration of this functionality into the WordPress admin for easy access, the SEO Ultimate plugin has just acquired a new functionality facet that further entrenches its position as the ultimate search engine optimization solution for the WordPress blogging software.
