You can compare up to 5 sites quickly and easily using a Free or PRO Compete account. In the example below, we have compared four domains google.com, yahoo.com, msn.com, and bing.com. The numbers on the image below outline three simple steps you can take to create and change the metrics of a comparison.
- This sections allows you to type any five domains, users that are not logged in will only be able to compare three at a time. Once you’ve entered all the domains you’d like to compare select the Compare button on the right. If you’d like to clear your selection of domains and start over select the blue and white x button on the left.
- This drop-down menu allows you to compare other metrics than just Unique Visitors, although it is the currently selected metric. Free users can select Unique Visitors, Visits, or Rank across the chosen competitive set. PRO users have access to all the monthly and daily metrics for this comparison.
- Select any available time frame and the graph will adjust the dates, if you’re looking at monthly data, the 7D (day) and 30D buttons will not be available. Additionally, only PRO users have access to two full years of trended monthly data.
