Competitive Assessment Audit

Jody Nimetz Co. provides competitive intelligence with our Competitive Assessment Audits for small, medium and Enterprise level businesses.  Wondering how well (or not) that your competition is performing in Google and search engines?  Our Competitive Audits focus on SEO and how well your competition is performing in Organic Search. I have been conducting site audits since 2002.  I have performed Competitive Assessment Audits for some of the largest brands in the world and have helped shaped their digital marketing strategies based on findings from their SEO Audits.

Why Does My Site Need a Competitive Audit?

Depending on how well your site is performing in organic search, the Digital Space for your business and industry may be hyper competitive.  As a result it is a good idea to have some understanding of the major players in your space and how they are performing in Search.  All it takes is an emerging competitor with a well optimized web property and your website can be displaced in Google’s search results.  This can lead to a decline in traffic which in turn can lead to a decline in conversions and as a result a decline in revenue.  Nobody wants that, especially knowing how competitive the Search Results can be.  It can be difficult to regain your position within the organic search results of Google and other search engines.

Conducting a competitive audit can identify issues where your online competition may be besting you in Search.  A Competitive Audit can also establish some bench marking baselines to help you measure how well you may be performing against notable competitors.
