The winners and losers in the online pet supplies industry

The pet supplies market has seen good results in the past few months with the market increasing by a total of 12%. Not bad at all. However, although the entire market has increased, that doesn’t mean every brand within has seen positive results.

For the winners this year, we saw big and small brands achieving good gains. Pets at Home, for example, achieved decent gains of 5%, and The Spruce Pets saw a massive increase of over 100%! Small brands also did well this year, with Lords and Labradors seeing an uplift of 506% in organic visibility. These are the brands to keep an eye on.

However, where there are winners, there must also be losers. Zoo Plus has seen better years, losing -35%, and Viovet isn’t far behind with a loss of -22%. These brands have some work to do.

Which online pet supply brands have the best digital reach?

Digital brand reach is essential if you want to reach your audience in a variety of ways. Search isn’t the only avenue to get in front of your customers.

Inside, we’ve performed a digital brand reach analysis. This compares you against the competition to see who’s reaching and engaging with their audience the best. This analysis looks at social media scores and online brand mentions to derive an overall rank.

What are the high competition keywords in the online pet supply industry?

It’ll come as no surprise that the pet supplies industry is awash with opportunity keywords. Our beloved furry friends are often given better treatment than we grant ourselves, so high-volume keywords are expected. But with high volumes comes plenty of competition – some of it more difficult than the rest.

High competition keywords – those with high intent and plenty of search volume – are the ones you should be chasing. If you’re already succeeding, hold onto them like a dog with its bone. Our in-depth report looks at these keywords in detail. Expect easy-to-read league tables, identifying the biggest and best keywords in the industry. Get this for free by filling in the form above.

For quick reference, the most competitive term in the pet supply industry is “pet store”. This local keyword receives 27,000 searches every month and has a competitive rating of 63/100. It’s safe to say getting this keyword would be both a profitable but difficult endeavour.

Some brands have already landed spots on the first page for this keyword. These include the likes of Pet at Home, Zoo Plus, and Fetch. Nice work!

What are the keyword opportunities in the online pet supply industry?

Maybe of slightly more interest than the high competition keywords are those which are an easier opportunity. In our report, we present you with a list of high-volume keywords that can be quickly implemented into your campaign for quick results.

Opportunity keywords allow small brands to work-around the competition and still obtain traffic from lesser-known terms. Here are a few trends we noticed when looking at our list.

Specific Foods for Pets

One trend that appeared in the keyword list was food-related keywords. Keywords relating to gourmet and hypoallergic foods are underserved in this market. If a small brand were to capitalise on this with a well-optimised category, they could see good ranks in no time at all.

Which online pet supply brands have the best online reputation?

Reputation has always been important. But it’s even more important now search engines have adapted their algorithms to reward those seen as trustworthy. One of the best ways to prove this is through online reviews.
