    Nowadays most of online backlink checker tool does not show the correct backlinks of our competitor's websites.It only show the backlink which have placed the links in their client website.So mostly we can not get our competitor's website backlink details from the online tool.Is analyzing the process of competitor backlink details dead?

    Competitor analysis can never be dead. It is starting activities that every online business does to have an idea related to promotion work of the website. The thing that only matters is how much smart you are to know who is going to be your competitor and what search queries you are using to search your competitors. I do not think that you need to rely on backlink checker tools to check links of your competitors, you can simply check your competitors link on Google by typing :- links:website url

    Thanks,
    Sameera

    No, never. It could be that the tools is the problem. How come you have thought that the data these tools are showing are not the correct backlinks of your competitors?

    The best tool for discovering your competitors backlinks (as well as Google!) is Majestic SEO. Checking your competitors links is certainly not dead but you need to be careful which links you decide to use for yourself because they will still have some bad links.

    Competitor analysis is one of the best techniques in SEO, and it can't be dead. You should use tools like ahref site explorer or openlinkprofiler. These tools are really helpful to check competitor's backlinks.

    No it not dead, but the thing is there are so many hot things in SEO that many people do not discuss about this old formula as I think everyone is aware of this technique.
