Competitors Terms?

Is there a way to find them?

Anyone know of a way to determine what keywords your competitors are using?

how about looking at the meta keywords tags?

I find this is about the only thing that the keyword tag is good for these days...

There's a website called Googspy dot com into which you type a competitor's URL and it'll tell you [some of] the keywords they're advertising on AdWords for, as well as some SEO ranking info.

Unfortunately with googspy you only get a very small percentage of the keywords returned. Sometimes only 1 or 2. But the same competitor is showing up in AdWords for lots of other keywords I type in.

I work in a highly competitive industry with a lot of shady competitors but my company is legit so i want to demolish the "bad guys"

Googspy data is very fatigued and has a heavy (exclusively?) US skew.

Why don't you call up all your competitors on the phone and ask them if they'll fork over all the hard work they did on their keywords free of charge to you. That will save you an immense amount of time spent on "legit" work.

^^ Great idea, man you're smart, way too smart for me.

I've learned to use any resources available to me, and i guarantee that if something like this was available I would use it.

The guy who built our internal keyword generation system was "inspired by the semantic philosophy of Wittgenstein". I don't know what that means, but people who actually know Wittgenstein's work tell me it's a good sign.
