    Yes, competitor analysis helps to know from which source and how, you will get most benefits in term of getting back links. But blindly trust on competitor is also not good thing because sometimes it may happen when you research for competitor’s analysis, at that time the website is on good position in the search engine and after comes big drop in ranking.

    Nowadays, quality and fresh content is useful to get natural backlinks for the website and for that guest posting, forum posting, blogging, article submission, video submission are the best effective activities. But before go to build link through these sources once read Google’s content guidelines to know how to built it in proper way.

    Doing analysis of your competitor's website is a good way to build quality backlinks. Apart from that you can also do forums posting related to your website niche and also guest posting for building quality of backlinks for your website.

    James: I have found analyzing what my competitor is doing best to know my tactics. Listing on Free Web directories and Forum Signature links are always helpful which you can freely without paying.

    Although you can use forum signature links to increase traffic, and the benefits of that are questionable, links from forum signatures and directories are of little value to the search engines. Following the link is Jason's post will give you the most helpful information. An analysis of what your competitors are doing will also be very beneficial.

    Guest posting is an effective way to get quality back links. Also write great content and share through social media.

    One of the best ways to check your competitors backlink profile is to see what incoming links are indexed in Google. Though it won't give you the exact number of links, you can be sure that those links can be indexed.

    IF you have confident on yourself then do not need to check competitor backlinks...Just do all the task as per search engine rules and you will surly get the positive result...

    As per my opinion check your competitors website only when you are confused about Keywords Selection..
