Making a complex process available to everyone

Content Gap automates a process that was originally accessible only to advanced users of Excel. But the principle behind it is very simple.

Take all the keywords your competitor ranks for and subtract the keywords that your own website ranks for. What you’ll get is a list of keywords that you should be targeting.

Ahrefs’ Content Gap tool allows to do that with a bunch of competitors at the same time, giving you a massive list of keywords that you should be targeting:

You have 3 options for filtering results:

  • The keywords that any of your competitors rank for

  • The keywords that at least 2 of your competitors rank for

  • The keywords that all of your competitors rank for

You'll get the best results if you choose to see the keywords that all of your competitors rank for in search, but not you:
