    Awesome write-up. Definitely going to save this and reference it down the road. (Yeah, that beginning part sounds a lot like your typical mass spam comment, but I mean it!) In fact, this whole “Inside SEER” series sounds like it is something that shouldn’t be missed.

    “If your client or company is in an E-commerce heavy industry, you will want to exclude certain keywords so your results are cluttered with competitors that you do not want to reach out to.”

    Interesting strategy. Although, I’m not sure why you’d want to clutter your results with competitors that you don’t want to contact :-p

    Thanks, Philip! Glad you found it useful… and you’re looking forward to the Inside SEER series. It’s definitely something that we’re excited to share with all of you!

    And definitely! By excluding your competitors in this initial prospecting phase, you (hopefully) save yourself more work down the line!

    Sarcasm is hard to portray online… you missed mine :(

    The quote from the post says “so your results are cluttered with competitors” — So your results ARE cluttered with competitors.

    I was just joking, saying that cluttering your results with competitors is an interesting strategy. I tried to emphasize the joke with the smiley ;-)

    Whelp, I’m batting 0-for-2! I missed the sarcasm and the error (twice)! :) Time for more coffee!

    In any case, it’s all fixed now! Definitely appreciate you pointing it out :)

    Hello Lauren,

    The ‘link opportunity finder’ in SEOprofiler does a lot of what you describe above (it’s available for free in SEOprofiler so I think I can mention it here without advertising too much ;-).

    The link opportunity finder integrates with the link manger in SP (which is also free up to 100 links) and you can also use the link profiler tool to find good link partners. The link profiler tool uses the database which is independent from Moz, Ahrefs or MajesticSEO.

    You might want to take a look at it.

    Awesome– thanks for sharing Johannes. I’m always on the lookout for new tools, so I will definitely check OpenLinkProfiler out!

    Hey great suggestion on using Netpeak to gather Moz metrics. After some research, that is the only way I know how to pull in DA and PA from a list of URLs. I use it in my competitor link analysis all the time. I just wrote a tutorial here if anyone wants a walk-through.
