MixRank Provides Insight into Competitors' AdSense Campaigns
MixRank has a new competitive intelligence service that allows a company to see AdSense campaigns for similar - that is, competing - products including which strategies have been most successful for those companies. Users can also see the sites that are directing the most traffic to their competitors. The technology behind this offering, according to TechCrunch, is a search engine for AdSense MixRank created that crawls pages running Google ads. Since Google sorts these ads by effectiveness, MixRank indexes this data and estimates ad performance, TechCrunch says. Then, after crawling these pages, MixRank takes into account Google’s sorting of the ads by effectiveness, then uses this data to serve essential performance analytics.
