Nur wer die Strategien der Wettbewerber kennt, hat auch die Möglichkeit, den eigenen Handlungsspielraum sicher und zuverlässig abschätzen zu können. Schließlich beeinflussen die Produkte und Serviceleistungen unserer schärfsten Konkurrenten auch die Anspruchshaltung unserer Kunden ganz erheblich. Darüber hinaus sollten wir das Aggressionspotenzial unserer Wettbewerber in Erfahrung bringen.
Beschränke dich auf fünf bis acht deiner engsten Konkurrenten und auf ebenso viele Merkmale. Wenn du Branchen- oder Marktberichte liest, dann wähle dir die zwei aus, die dir besonders interessant erscheinen, und ignoriere den Rest. Dein Ziel ist es nicht, alles über deinen Zielmarkt zu erfahren, sondern zu erkennen, wie die Wettbewerbssituation beschaffen ist, welche Chancen und Risiken sich für dich ergeben und mit welcher Vorgehensweise du dich am besten behaupten kannst.

Wenn du dauerhaft auf dem Markt bestehen willst, reicht es nicht aus, eine Wettbewerbsanalyse oder Konkurrenzanalyse nur einmal durchzuführen. Es empfiehlt sich, jedes Jahr eine neue Wettbewerbsanalyse zu erstellen. Der Aufwand für die erste Analyse ist naturgemäß hoch. Für die folgenden Analysen kannst du auf deinen Arbeiten aufbauen – du kennst dann zum Beispiel schon die besten Recherchequellen und musst nicht erneut danach suchen. Vergiss nicht, auch dein eigenes Unternehmen regelmäßig unter die Lupe zu nehmen – zum Beispiel mit der bewährten SWOT-Analyse. So hast du gute Chancen auf vordere Positionen im Wettbewerb.

Some websites regard visitors in different ways. For example, blogs are not as concerned with their visitor type, so long as they are drawing in visitors. In short, having an audience matters more than who makes up the audience. A business website, on the other hand, is looking for a certain type of traffic. This traffic should come from your target market. To make this happen, creating a keyword theme is necessary.


Ein wichtiger Schritt bei deiner Wettbewerbsbeobachtung ist die Entscheidung darüber, wer überhaupt zu deinen Wettbewerbern zählt. Hier ist es angebracht, nicht nur die üblichen Verdächtigen ins Auge zu fassen, also die Anbieter mit einem ähnlichen Geschäftsmodell, sondern auch jene, die dasselbe Problem mit anderen Mitteln lösen. Ein Beispiel: Als Kinobetreiber stehst du mit anderen Kinos in deiner Stadt im Wettbewerb, aber dein größter Konkurrent ist das Fernsehen.

The use of semantic search has completely changed the way we perform modern search queries today. A decade ago, people stuck with what was short and simple. If they wanted to find the best pizza places in New York City, they would type in “Pizza New York.” However, with Google’s Hummingbird update and the algorithmic improvements to semantic searches, people now are more inclined to type in “Where is the best pizza place in New York City.”
Understanding the balance of terms that might be a little more difficult due to competition, versus those terms that are a little more realistic, will help you maintain a similar balance that the mix of long-tail and head terms allows. Remember, the goal is to end up with a list of keywords that provide some quick wins but also helps you make progress toward bigger, more challenging SEO goals.
This metric can aid everything from budget allocations to search term inclusion and exclusion. We recently used the “All conv. value / cost” metric to identify queries that were converting most frequently and qualifying at the highest rates. These queries have since been applied as exact match keywords in a series of “Top Performers” campaigns, and are already generating new leads.
After setting your campaign goal and choosing the right platform for your ad, the next step is to plan your ad targeting for your most relevant audience. There are two types of targeting. You can target audience for a specific geographic location and you can also optimize your campaign for a specific device type, operating systems and wireless networks.
It’s important to classify your keywords. You should distinguish your most important high level keywords, the ones that have sufficient traffic for your business and connect the best to your business. These are usually more “head” than “tail”. You should only have a few of these keywords for your business. The rest of it are bound to be more down the tail. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go read up on long tail keywords.
Geography can also be used to predict desirable demographics and information about users in that area. Neighborhoods can often be delineated by residents’ income bracket, age, ethnicity, education, and many other demographics or interests. Politicians often draw district boundaries into areas of common political constituencies that also predict demographics or common values.
Brands love to be front and center and who can blame them? Essential to becoming a well known brand is achieving awareness and name recognition, and well branded companies tend to do well at drawing in new customers. In the world of search, the best way to build your brand is by showing up in the top position of search results. Preferably you can do this for both organic and paid results, but at the very least you can often buy your way to the top of search results with a high enough Maximum CPC bid. You will also want to enhance your brand even further by adding Sitelinks to your account to showcase the depth of products and services you offer and occupy even more real estate in search results.

Sie wusste, dass es in ihrer Region bereits mehrere Anwälte gab, die sich – so wie sie – auf Medizinrecht spezialisiert hatten. Und die alle weitaus mehr Erfahrung und bessere Kontakte hatten als sie. „Aufgrund einer Konkurrenzschutzklausel in meinem alten Arbeitsvertrag musste ich praktisch bei Null angefangen. Ich konnte keine Mandanten oder Kontakte mitnehmen. Ich musste also herausfinden, wie ich trotzdem gegen meine Konkurrenten bestehen könnte“ beschreibt Tatjana Schmelzer ihre knifflige Ausgangssituation. Sie beschloss, ihre Analyse zu nutzen, um ihre eigene Nische zu finden, denn ihr war klar: Wenn sie die Strategien ihrer Wettbewerber herausfinden könnte, hätte sie die ideale Grundlage, um ihre eigenen Stärken zu entwickeln.
Impacts click-through rate. When someone searches for your keyword, they’re not just going to find your video—they’re going to get a list of similar results. You want your title to be clear, descriptive, and most of all, engaging to win their attention and their click. If more people are clicking on your title than on others, it’s going to be a signal to YouTube that your video is a good match for this keyword.
Angenommen, der fiktive Supermarkt A möchte wissen, wie sein Markt im Vergleich zu anderen ankommt. Zuerst einmal muss Supermarkt A herausfinden, mit welchen anderen Märkten er sich vergleichen möchte, welche also direkt mit ihm konkurrieren. In einen Fragebogen zur Wettbewerbsanalyse gehört daher zuerst einmal die Frage nach potenziellen Konkurrenten.
Pick your battles. Sometimes a keyword is so competitive, it's best to let it go. Focus on keywords where you have the most opportunity to move up in the ranks. Moving up from a ranking of 60 to 50 won't have much of an impact, but moving from a ranking of 15 to 8 pushes you from Page 2 to Page 1 of Google's search results, where you'll have a much better chance of being found.
Like most advertising techniques, geo-targeting predates the internet. Local papers, radio and television programs have long been used to reach customers in a particular region with ads. These advertisements were customized for the local audiences where possible, a process that we now call optimization. Digital technology has simply made this practice more widespread. The major innovation that has increased the effectiveness of geo-targeting is the addition of other data points beyond simple location.
As I hope I’ve illustrated, in the golden age of martech, it’s time to stop squandering valuable website visits on impersonal, generic experiences. You can now leverage useful information about where your visitors are coming from and, by extension, come up with creative offers that will be relevant for them. Small details significantly enhance customer experience, and I hope you can use the above three examples as a springboard for some experiments of your own.
Knowing your business’ target audience and matching it up with where they live or work helps you find those who might be most interested in your product or service.  For example, a ticket broker might want to advertise NCAA basketball tickets in the state of Kentucky and might think of using Kentucky basketball in its messaging.  However, Louisville basketball would be preferable for any advertising within 50 miles of the city on the Kentucky side of the border and 70 miles into Indiana due to the strength of Louisville’s fan base in those areas.

Finally, some strategies will drive both efficiency and growth within an account. For example, concluding an ad copy test based on CTR, conversion rate, or conversion per impression can increase revenue and improve ROI. However, these strategies typically show incremental long-term improvements, and are less likely to ramp revenue or improve ROAS in the short-term.
To make the most of that investment, it’s important to plan for keywords that you know are a good fit for your brand, and that people are already searching for. Afterwards, optimizing your videos to help YouTube make the match for those keywords is critical. It’s one of the best ways to ensure your videos will work hard for your business long after you’ve published them. /injects>
