Tool #1: Ahrefs – Ahrefs will show you where your competitors are getting their search traffic from. It shows their most popular pages and the keywords that drive their Google traffic.

If you take those pages and write better content than your competition, you can eventually outrank them and take some of their traffic.

Tool #2: Buzzsumo – this tool is great to get you more social media traffic. Search for phrases in Buzzsumo related to your space. Buzzsumo will provide a list of all of the popular articles.

Create an article better than the ones on Buzzsumo and reach out to the people who are most likely to share it (Buzzsumo provides you with that list).

Tool #3: Google Search Console – You have errors on your site and you need to fix them. From 404 errors to issues Google has with your site, Google Search Console lists them all out.

Fix all of the errors.

Tool #4: SEMrush – Similar to Ahrefs, SEMrush shows where your competition is getting their traffic from. The difference is SEMrush showcases all of the paid keywords your competitors' bid on.

You can then get a list from SEMrush of your competitions most lucrative paid keywords. From there you can start bidding on those phrases as well.

Tool #5: Ubersuggest – You probably already have some Google traffic. Ubersuggest will show you all of the long tail phrases related to the keywords you are already ranking for. Add those phrases onto your website and you will gobble up more search traffic.

I use these tools or similar, and it has helped me grow my traffic considerably. People need to just keep in mind it takes time for Google to start moving you up in search. It is so beautiful when it happens!

Awesome video!
How often to they update their data? For example, does Ahrefs update their data on a daily basis?

    Neil Patel - June 21, 2017 Reply

    I notice major changes every week. They may update daily, but I look at it weekly.
