  2. These are some good advice, but for begging bloggers it’s good to say that the spying on your competition is mostly to see how they write, what platforms do they use to generate promotion of their blogs, because most will just take a look at the blog see the ads and go, I have to do that, yes, but later after you generate some traffic on your blog.

  4. I think that spying on competitors is a very underrated method to boost traffic when you are a new blogger. I feel like a lot of people do not really take the time out to research what their competitors are doing so that they can maybe evaluate how the website reached the traffic status that they grew to have. It would definitely be beneficial for sure to look into! Thanks for sharing this post!
