I find the most useful tools help analyze traffic and competition -- Google Keywords, Moz toolset and SEMRush are my go-tos. Everyone is saying you have to 'have unique content', which you do, and a...

I don't think we disagree at all. Yes, if you assume all the traffic coming in is non-converting, that's a bad thing. When we talk about increasing traffic, though, I assume the conversion rate stays...
