How to collect a competitor's keywords?

Serpstat makes this problem easy. Use step-by-step instructions to find and analyze high-ranking competitor's keywords in search engines
Do you want to know what keywords a competitor's site is showing in search results? Enter a competitor's site into the form and go to Keywords.

Visibility analysis and general ranking of the domain in search results

First of all, check the ranking of the competitor's domain in the search engine.
In the Serpstat search box, enter the domain name and click "Search";
In the Summary report, note the Visibility metric number. It is based on the keywords' popularity and the domain ranking in the Google top 20 and shows the maximum possible site visibility for 1 million keywords;
Click on the Visibility report to get the Visibility trend data;
Look at the Visibility Trends graph to analyze the success of a competitor's SEO campaigns for a month or a year;
Scroll up a little and pay attention to the Keyword position distribution chart. The diagram shows the number of keywords the domain is ranked for in the top 1, top 3, top 5, top 10, top 20 and top 100 in Google;
Click on the report for an expanded keywords list the domain ranks for in the top 100 in Google

Check keywords the competitors are optimizing the domain for

Now you need to check the keywords your competitor is using to optimize their SEO campaigns. To do this, use filtering.
Click on the filter icon in the upper right corner of the SEO Keywords report;
Add the first filter: "Misspelled keywords + Does not contain all";
Add a second filter: "Frequency + Less Than" and enter a numerical value that is appropriate for your project;
Add a third filter: "Keywords + Does not contain everything (exact match)", then enter all the competitor's brand queries in the field that opens and click "Apply";
The resulting list can be downloaded in a convenient format for subsequent analysis of the competitors' semantic core.

Exploring Top Pages

Next, you should analyze which pages of the competitor's site contain the largest number of keywords and reposts in social networks. These data, in particular, can be used to judge the niche trends and the most popular products / services of the competitor.
In the toolbar located in the left column, click on "Domain Analysis → SEO Analysis → Top Pages";
A table will open, which contains data on the pages of the domain containing the largest number of keywords the domain ranks for in the top 100 in Google;
Click on the indicator Number of keywords near any domain;
In the list, you will see the semantics for this page and will be able to analyze it in detail.
