When we are working on companies, it is often times useful to see what’s related to what, here are the tools that I use:
* “Google Sets”:http://labs.google.com/sets. This lets you type in a bunch of related ideas and see from the web, what else is related, so if you type in Microsoft, Ignition and Oracle, the related terms “include”:http://labs.google.com/sets?hl=en&q1=microsoft&q2=ignition&q3=oracle&q4=&q5=&btn=Large+Set Oracle, IBM, Novell, Intel, Cisco, Netscape in that order.
* “Alexaholic”:http://alexaholic.com. Once you have the related companies, its easy to see where they are ranking if they are consumer sites.
