SpyFu Review - Spy on your online Competitor's Adwords and Keywords

In this competitive world where at every steps your competitors want to step ahead, you need a tool which can spy and give you detail about other similar product and keep you one step forward.

In this hub I tried to explain a tool which will help you to spy to monitor your competitors are can see all the keywords they are targeting in adwords or other advertising, Also you can copy them directly to your own adwords.Also not only keywords, you can also even see how much they are bidding on a particular keyword.

It will be like you will get a complete view of their adword campaign.Its an amazing tool isn't.I introduce you to SpyFu.

Features of Spyfu:

  1. Download your competitors keyword directly and copy it to adword
  2. SEO ranking of your competitors
  3. Top Organic ranking of similar products
  4. Views top 100 adwords similar to your product or keyword

Now quickly have a look of its Benefits:

  1. Making it easier to add your competitor's keywords directly to your adwords
  2. Use your competitors domain and use their keywords
  3. Make it easier to kick start your adwords

So in short Spyfu is a online adword tool which makes it possible for you to view your competitor 's keywords,Adword budget,bid cost,click/day they got, and other valuable information about your competitors.

You can also use this tool to discover new and hidden keywords.Once you navigate to Spyfu website, you will find a search box where you can type your keyword or domain name to see the result.It is free and you can see limited result.

You can find all important info about your competitors from free version as I mentioned below in the pictures.But there is a subscribed version also available.So lets see why you should have a paid version?

  • With free version you can have only top 10 keywords , but with a paid version you can see search thousand of keywords and also can export them to excel sheet
  • Also in search box you can see thousands of advertisers and their keywords, which is limited in free version
  • Another important use of subscribed spyfu is to see top result of organic search and find cheaper per clicks adwords, you can then import them to your adwords campaigns


Well as every tool has some problem, this too has got its issue.The biggest issue is sometime Spyfu result were not 100% accurate.Sometime it shows the result of your competitors like $300/day, whereas it have got changed in recent days, but it still shows older values.

But it does not meant its a useless tool, still its provide your recent information about your competitors keywords and domains.

Overall I can say that Spyfu is a must tool for all PPC campaign builder, to analyze their competitors keywords and domains.You can see what your competitors are bidding and its landing pages results are wonderful.


Well as I said its available in 2 modes:

  • Free version
  • Subscribed version ( price vary for US and UK- Varies from $79/month to $999/month)

Still need more info. Check out SpyFu here...

      'you need a tool which can spy and give you detail about other similar product and keep you one step forward'

      By copying your competitors rather than using your own brain to find winning keywords your actually always going to be in their shadow :)

      Hello Max,

      Very interesting hub.

      It seems a little underhanded to be spying on someone else's work.

      Developing ones own skills would be better karma I think.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Most people who know SEO have all that hidden but for just a blogger or a site like this I guess it would work, I think what you are doing is copying someone.

      You'd be better off spending your time, learning the basics of SEO.

      I'm still voting this up and interesting
