Hi and welcome to the very first Netcomber video tutorial. I will give you a basic run through of our service.

We hope than Netcomber will give you a lot of insight about owner-networks all over the internet. In this short tutorial I will give you a basic overview of what our service does, how to use it, how to interpret the results and some user cases that illustrate the value of the data.

Ok, so here we have the homepage which is also the basic user interface. At the moment we are still in our BETA version with 18 million sites in our index, so you can try our service for free. To create an account, click on the "register" button en fill in the open field, you can ignore the "coupon code" field. You will then receive an e-mail. Click on the link in the e-mail and you are good to go. Now we can proceed to using netcomber.

Now lets get down to the juicy part. Netcomber is a tool that will show you all the sites that are owned by the same owner who's website you've submitted. Have you ever wondered what your competitors are up to? What they are working on in secret or have you wondered about the quality of a directory
you are considering submitting your new website to? Netcomber's secret sauce calculates the similarity between two sites using thousands of (weighted) variables, like account ID's, whois information, analytics code and even similarities in coding style, to calculate the chance that websites are owned by the same person.

Lets have a look at a concrete case. Say that you own a dating website and want to see what your competitor ashleymadison.com is up to. I type in ashleymadison.com in the search field, whoops I misspelled but was guided to the correct page anyway...

And here we see the results. In the first column you see the URL of all the related pages. Next to it is the overall similarity in percentages. So in this case we can see that there is a 98% chance that man crunch.com is related to ashleymadison.com. The remaining columns tell you on what the similarity score is based on. The most obvious signals, like same analytics or adsense ID comes first, then you see similar contact details based on whois information. The next column tells you the links in common, meaning that both sites link to a 3rd one. Hosting details like IP addresses are also taken into account. In the last column you will see what we call "technology in common" this factor takes into account similarities in coding style, unique code, found in 2 sites indicates a high probability that they were created by the same developer. All of these signals are weighted, combined and calculate the overall similarity score that you see next to the URL.

Or lets say that you are a search engine optimizer and you're considering submitting a your site to charitiesdirectory.com. In these days you cant be too careful about the quality of pages you are getting links from, but in charitiesdirectory's case, it doesnt look like they own spammy looking domain, they look like niche directories.. A good sing, so go ahead and submit!

If any of the elements stand out, you can click on them to get more information, you can see the analytics code in more detail, or if you are interested in getting in touch with the owner, you can just click on the e-mail and send a message.

Now that you know how to create an account and how to use it. Why not give it a try yourself and see what your competitor or anyone else is up to? Currently we have over 18 million sites crawled and indexed with our next update including 180 million sites, the bulk of the internet, so keep an eye out for the big launch.

If you want to have a look at some more in depth user cases, please have a look at our other instruction videos. Thank you for watching the brief tutorial and hope to see you back on http://www.netcomber.com soon!
