    Track what's your competitor's affiliates doing effective and free
    I'm very intersted in what my competitors' affiliate doing now. Many tools are not free of charge. I use google alert now and find it's effective. But the results are not exactly match with my keywords and I always need to pick useful info in so many results. What can I do?

    competitors' affiliate doing now
    There are no tools around that focuses totally on that requirement, but a combination of several can give you leads and ideas. for example

    Compete.com (not free)
    Brandverity.com (not free)
    Google
    Syntryx.com (not free)

    Cheers

    Subscribe your competitor's domain name on google alert and you will find many useful info. But also need to use other tools to analyze who is there biggest affiliates. also it takes much time to discriminate information.

    Thanks for that response Sherry, I have actually never tried to use Google alerts so this is something that I think I am going to definitely look into.

    compete, yahoo external links, google alert as said before all can be used to track their affiliates. of course you need to do some analysis on the info.

    I'm loving Spyfu Sarah - thanks for the great tool tip! It's a great way to get a quick glimpse at how much competitors are spending on campaigns and which keywords they're targeting the most.

    Hire someone who can find the competitors' affiliate manually. That will be cheaper and effective as compared to buying those costly tools. If you outsource your need to India then you can get this work done at cheaper rates as compared to spyfu or compete etc.
