Understanding the competition should be a key component of planning your SEO strategy.
The first step is to understand who your competitors are in the search results. It can often be small players who are your biggest competition.
For example, consider a credit card search
- American Express, and
- Discover Card
all fail to reach the #1 position in the Google results.
Instead, affiliate players dominate these search engine result pages.
Affiliates tend to be the most adept at search engine optimization
and can be the last to adhere to the search engine terms, guidelines and conditions.
