Discovering competitors’ landing pages can open a gold mine of possibilities for your business. Beyond examining their ads and copy, analyzing competitor landing pages offers deeper insights into their strategies for converting paid traffic.

A high-converting landing page comprises the best elements and copy to showcase what sets you apart from your competitors prominently. To achieve this, it’s crucial to understand the strengths your competition emphasizes, allowing you to create landing pages that offer superior value.

Here’s a blog post that will help you understand how to find competitor landing pages and analyze them to boost your growth.

How To Find Competitor’s Landing Pages?

When it comes to social media, the ad library makes it easy to find competitor landing pages. However, the task becomes tricky for Google Ad campaigns.

Here, you should invest in good PPC competitive intelligence tools that can give valuable and relevant insights into your competitor’s campaign strategy, as there are no specific landing page spy tools.

If you are unaware of your competitors’ domains, you can figure those domains out in many ways.

- Google Ads Auction Report

On Google Ads, your competitors are pretty easily visible for ad campaigns you’re running and for the keywords you’re bidding on.

The Auction Insights Report in Google Ads provides valuable information about your competitors’ campaigns and compares your performance with other advertisers. Let’s dig deep into how you can use Auction Report to understand how to stack up against your competition

Here’s how to access the Auction Report in Google Ads:

Step 1: Sign in To Your Google Ads Account


Step 2: Click on any active Ad campaign and go to the ‘Auction Insight’ tab. You can also choose to see the reports at the ad group, campaign, or even the individual keyword level.


Step 3: Auction Report Analysis The Auction Report will provide important data points about your competitors and check the following in-depth insights:

  • Check competitor domains spending their ad budget on the same keywords as you.

  • Check out the average position in which your ad is shown.

  • Check how frequently your ads are being shown compared to your competitors.


With this data, you can help highlight new and untapped opportunities to benchmark your performance.

“I start by identifying my main competitors using tools like Google Ads’ Auction report to see who is bidding on the same keywords. I then analyze their landing pages to see what keywords, CTAs, and design elements they use. I pay close attention to the traffic sources, design style, color schemes, and offers presented and look for areas where they may be lacking, such as cluttered layouts or poor readability.”
-Dan Tabaran  Marketing Expert Influencity

- Ahrefs Report (Paid)

Ahrefs is the best competitor analysis tool. It can easily provide you with your competitors’ PPC landing pages and all the critical information in one view.

Let’s get started on how to see competitor landing pages using Ahrefs.

Step 1: Log in to your Ahrefs Account

Step 2: Check Ahrefs Keywords Explorer Under Keywords Explorer, you can search your PPC keywords, uncover what your competitors are doing for that particular keyword, and determine the most effective landing pages that work in your niche. Keywords Explorer > Enter Your PPC keyword > Choose Country > Enter Search


Suppose you want to find competitive landing pages for a target keyword software development in the US.

Here, you can find extensive information about the keyword, such as search volume, CPC, keyword suggestions, and other metrics.

Step 3: Analyze The Competitive Landscape To uncover information about specific advertisers and their landing page strategies for your targeted PPC keyword, go to ads history in the left-hand navigation.


Under Ads History, you can find three different tabs:


  • By Domain Tab: It shows you the traffic or the number of ads for a particular domain.

  • By Landing Page Tab: It shows you all the different landing pages run across different URLs for your target keyword.

  • All Ads Tab: This tab shows you the actual text and the copy of the ad your competitors use for that keyword.

Let’s go through the domain tab to get a valuable snapshot of competitor PPC activity and the alignment of their ads and landing pages.

Here, you can find different domains, what ads they’re running, and what landing pages they’re using.

In our example, we found the highest-performing advertiser, Chetu. This company has been running ads since 2015 and currently has 200 different types of ads running. This indicates that their ads work. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be spending that much money on Google ads.


If you click on each of these ads, they will open up on their landing pages. You can dig deep and track competitor landing pages from here over time.


To make the best use of your competitor’s data, I would recommend doing the following :

  • Find different domains that bid on your “target keyword” and have been running successfully for quite a while.

  • Click through to each competitor to see their ads and landing pages.

  • Bookmark landing pages under Chrome for research purposes.

  • Go through competitor landing pages individually and see what bits they’re doing.

  • Research sending traffic to a dedicated landing page versus a dedicated microsite or a homepage.

These are the key steps for using Ahrefs to see competitor landing pages that provide meaningful insights. You can track and compare your competitors’ landing pages and finally create different offers and landing page designs to improve your conversions.

- Google Search Results

Go to the search bar and enter your targeted keyword. If a sponsored post other than yours appears there, you’re competing.


You need to thoroughly analyze the domains sponsoring these search ads, which we will discuss further in this blog post. Also, if you’re advertising in a different country, we suggest you use a VPN to access the SERPs of your target country.


“If you are based in Singapore and working for an international brand, you will typically see ads from businesses in your country. To conduct competitor research and see how your competitors are targeting audiences in the US or UK, you need to use a VPN to change your IP address.”

-Waseem Bashir  Founder & CEO at Apexure

Once you have acquired competitor domains and landing pages, it is time to track and analyze them.

What To Do After You Find Your Paid Search Competitors?

Research. In-depth research.

The first step in your research is to understand whether your competitors use actual landing pages, homepages, or other website pages with their ads.

Spy on Your Competitors The Right Way

Learn how to spy on competitor paid ads for free and develop a counter-strategy to stay ahead of the competition.

Landing pages usually don’t have any external links and are focused on promoting just one service with a linear user journey. The homepages are not the same; they are filled with external links that promote multiple user journeys. We also do not index PPC landing pages as they are targeted toward specific audiences and utilized for securing user data.


For PPC campaigns, if you want to optimize your investments, it is better to have an actual landing page that directs visitors to conversions.

That said, it doesn’t mean you can ignore competitors using website pages with ads, as they might be getting more traffic because such pages are indexed and appear on SERPs. Here, following the keywords they organically rank for and the paid keywords becomes crucial.

Tools To Track Competitor Keywords:

* SE Ranking (Paid Tool With Free Trial)

SE Ranking is a competitive intelligence tool that aids in monitoring PPC and SEO keywords and a whole host of other information. It’s an amazing first step to determining how you perform in comparison to competitors.


Firstly, SE Ranking helps you identify your organic and PPC competitors by generating a full competitor list for each search query, a list of historical advertisers, top-performing keywords, and ads. Additionally, it helps you discover which keywords your competitor’s ads and landing pages are ranked for and provides ranking data.

SE Ranking offers a two-week free trial period, with their cheapest complete package starting at $52/month and the most expensive at $207/month.

* SpyFu (Free Version Available)

SpyFu is a multifunctional web tool that helps you monitor your competition’s SEO strategy, high-ranking keywords, and ads.


A handy feature is Kombat, which runs a domain comparison of shared organic keywords. It helps you compare keywords that you and your competitor use and how you rank comparatively.


By providing a visual aid in the form of a Venn Diagram, SpyFu produces user-friendly, quality data. All relevant keywords are characterized as ‘the keyword universe’ in which your core niche is defined. Your weaknesses are also identified - the keywords your competitors rank for and you do not.

Exclusive wins are keywords that you rank for and your competitors do not. Exclusive wins may be a positive sign - for example, it may show that you have tapped into a market your competitor has yet to identify. Or, it could be a negative sign - showing that you are wasting time with keywords that have little or no audience.

Spyfu is a paid tool with membership prices ranging from $39-79/month.

How To Find Out Where Your Competitors Are Advertising?

Most of the above discussion focuses on search ad landing pages, but your competitors might also be utilizing social media ads. Below, we have discussed how to confirm whether your competitors use Facebook and LinkedIn ads.

1. Facebook Ads

Facebook is not going anywhere, and neither are its ads. Many brands still actively utilize Facebook ads to reach the masses, making it a platform to check for competitor campaigns. Below is how to do so.

Step 1: Search for your competitor. Go to their official page and click on the ‘About’ section.



Step 2: Go to the ‘Page Transparency’ section and click See All


Step 3: Scroll down to the section ‘Ads from this Page’. If the page has ads, you will see a ‘go-to ad library’ button. From here, you can go to the main page, where you can look into all the ads published by the particular page.


2. LinkedIn Ads

To spy on LinkedIn ads, you first have to go to the official page of your competitor and then go to the ‘Posts’ section. On the left of the screen, you will find a small column with a CTA ‘View ad library.’ From here, you can access all the LinkedIn ads your competitors utilize. Also, if this column doesn’t appear, they are not using LinkedIn ads.


Spying on Competitor Ads With Facebook

The best thing about Facebook is that you can quickly examine your competitors’ strategies and understand how they engage their audience.

Here’s how you can spy on your competitors using Facebook:

  • Different ads run by your competitors

  • How long your competitors have been running ads

  • Check all ad details, including description and copy of the ad, technology assets used for the ad, etc.


Within the ad library, click on the CTA button, “Learn More” to understand where the traffic is going down.

It could be either the destination URL of the main website or a landing page. This information helps you identify the different actions you want your audience to take depending on your marketing campaign.

The possibilities for getting information from Facebook are endless, and all the core features are free to use. The same method can be followed to analyze LinkedIn ads.


“PPC ads target high-intent users, like searching Google for a locksmith to fix car keys. On Facebook, you might see an ad for alarms even if you're not searching for them. This difference in user intent makes it crucial to choose the right ad campaigns for each platform.”

-Waseem Bashir  Founder & CEO at Apexure

11 Landing Page Spy Tools To Find Competitor Landing Pages

Ideally, a landing page spy tool should help you monitor your competitor’s ads, traffic sources, traffic volume, keywords, and campaign lifespan. It is not enough to merely monitor your competitor’s landing pages - you also need to monitor how they acquire traffic and how successful their landing pages are.

To conduct an accurate competitor comparison and make things easier for you, below is the list of all the tools we have discussed, plus some bonus ones.

1. Native Ad Buzz

A native advert is an ad format that does not stand out as an advert - instead, it matches the look, feel, and tone of the page on which it appears. An example of this would be an ad on Facebook that promotes a company’s post rather than a banner advert at the bottom of the screen.


A service that monitors these native ads is Native Ad Buzz. Their services are two-tiered. The first tier is the Advertiser Page, which shows all the adverts from a competitor. The second tier is the more advanced Advertiser Search Tool, which generates an analysis of their internet traffic, shows the landing pages linked to each advert, and ranks the relative performance of each landing page.

Native Ad Buzz can help you reverse-engineer your competitor’s ads, giving you confidence that your ads will perform as well as possible.

Their pricing starts at $47.

2. Unmetric

Unmetric is an advert monitoring tool that explicitly monitors social media campaigns.


They monitor not only banner ads and pop-ups but also hashtags, likes, comments, and tweets related to your competitors. As social media grows, monitoring how much traffic is directed to your competitor’s landing pages is essential.

Additionally, Unmetric constantly monitors your competition and alerts you to new campaigns and changes in social media behavior.

Their pricing ranges from a free package to an in-depth analysis package at $1000/month.

Competitor Keyword Tracking

3. SE Ranking

Knowing the organic and paid keywords used by your competitors becomes crucial when their ads lead to their website pages, which are indexed and appear in organic and paid SERPs.


SE Ranking is a tool that can help you dominate both types of keywords and understand whether your competitors are targeting transaction or commercial keywords.

This tool provides a multi-step analysis, analyzing the market by identifying critical competitive players. It allows you to compare your customer demographics, channel acquisition, and conversion rates to those of the competition.

Their pricing ranges from the free option to an enterprise subscription.

6. SpyFu

Though we mentioned SpyFu, especially for its keyword research finesse, it offers more. This tool is as capable as Semrush, and it is also within budget. So, if you are not doing competitor research just because you think it won’t be economical, this tool is a definite check-out.
