[Heads Up] Removing the Competitors App on August 31st.

We’ll be removing access to the Competitors app for all HubSpot portals on August 31st. You’ll notice some communication around this in the coming days and weeks.

We’ve made this tough decision for a few reasons. First, we didn’t feel the data provided by the app was up to our standards. Traffic rank and linking domains can be misleading and unreliable, and aren't actionable. Second, usage has trended down significantly over time.

Often we need to clean up HubSpot to continue to deliver a high functioning, easy to use product. The Competitors app no longer served the purpose it once did. Usage has fallen, and there are better options. By retiring it we can focus on higher impact products that will help you, and others, achieve more with HubSpot. 

In lieu of the competitors app there are a few options to achieve the same results. Including the HubSpot SEO tools, Google Search Console, Moz, or the competitive intelligence tool Crayon. 

If you have any queries, reach out to your CSM, they’ll be glad to point you in the right direction.
