Last year, Rob released a downloadable whitepaper on the STAT site, Reverse Engineering your Competitors’ SEO Strategies. The Whitepaper looks at into 3 of the UK’s biggest online retailer’s, Amazon, Argos and eBay’s strategies and reverse-engineers them using Google.co.uk SERP data. There are some interesting takeaways as well as some big surprises and it’s great if you want to take advantage of large volumes of SERP data to gain a competitive advantage. If you don’t have time to read the whitepaper you can watch the STATcast presentation from Rob below:
What to expect at BrightonSEO
Over on this blog post, the guys at STAT explain that over the last few month’s they’ve been “analysing mountains of data and uncovering oodles of insights on featured snippets — when snippets occur, what query types generate them, and how you can earn more” – personally we can’t wait! To get a head start, they’ve also produced a whitepaper on the subject – How to get more featured snippets as recommended reading beforehand.
Where to find him at BrightonSEO
If you want to see Rob’s talk at BrightonSEO you’ll be able to find him in the Future-Proof session in the concert hall between 09:45 and 11:00.
