    Very nice video, i would agree that finding out who really you competitors are and then doing research on them is a better way towards analysis.

    shashank, this is precisely what I always do. I look at backlinks.. what backlinks.. page rank.. etc.. also what their on page seo looks like. I do tend to spend more of my time off the page though to push forwards.

    Hi Vicky, sorry about that! The page has been updated with the video now. We switched from Vzaar to Wistia and for some reason they weren’t updated on the site. Thanks for the heads up.
