GoogSpy: Business Counter Intelligence for Everyone



Copyright 2005 Sandra Stammberger

So, you want to know what your competitors are up to these
days, or maybe you want to research a keyword campaign that
will rank you at the top of the heap for whatever product
or service you're selling? Meet GoogSpy, a special search
engine that not only shows you what Google AdWords your
competitors are buying, but it will display all of the
search terms that rank them in the top 10, PLUS it even
displays their top 25 competitors.

What search engine does it base all of its intelligence on?
Well, with a name like GOOGspy, there can only be one.
GoogSpy.com is powered by a product called "WebScraper+"
which is the brainchild of Arizona-based Velocityscape.
According to Michael J. Roberts, Velocityscape's President,
GoogSpy extracts 500,000 search results per day from Google
and loads them into the GoogSpy.com database which it then
makes available for anyone to search.

Normally, when it comes to business intelligence software,
a sentence which read: "which it then makes available for
anyone to search." would end with the phrase "for a fee.",
but that's not the case with GoogSpy. At least for the time
being the tool is 100% free to use by anyone who cares to
go to http://www.GoogSpy.com and use it.

So, what's the value of such a powerful tool for the
average business web site operator? That depends upon how
much value you place on being able to see how a competitor
spends their advertising dollar and who else is competing
with them.

The interface is fairly straight forward. You enter your
search term in the text box and click the "Search button.
If GoogSpy finds content it will display the company name,
if any, as a hyperlink under the company heading and the
search terms, also as hyperlinks, under the Search terms
heading. If it doesn't find anything then it doesn't
display anything. For about two minutes more development
time the programmers could have added a "Sorry, your search
term did not return any results" message but I guess less
is more with these guys.

The fact that they are still building their database is
apparent when you enter some company names that should be
found yet are not. However, when a hit IS found, the
information is spot on. On top of that, the tool is pretty
good at ferreting out things you wouldn't normally
consider. For example, do a search on CIA.gov and you'll
discover that the CIA buys several AdWords in Google. Now
that's spying!

They also have an option to browse by Company and Search
Term, but the interface for doing that is relatively
useless for a serious search. However, it can be a lot of
fun if you're simply killing time and want to see what you
can see.

It takes a few minutes of clicking around before you get
the hang of what you are reading and how powerful a tool
this really is. If you are working on an advertising or
marketing plan, whether it be one that you'll really use,
or one that your banker wants to see, be sure to make a few
passes through GoogSpy.com to see what the rest of the your
market is doing and how much they're spending. It will be
worth the trip.
