Competitive UK Industries

I also discovered the most active online industries in UK and have built a short list below, starting at the hardest inustry to compete against locally.

1) Tobacconists
2) Storage services
3) Travel agents
4) Aquariums
5) Electrical testing and inspecting
6) Fashion designers
7) Packaging and wrapping supplies
8) Cat and dog grooming
9) Minibus hire
10) Bouncing castles and inflatables hire

These are the most competitive business types in UK and indicate how much SEO work is needed to rank in these industries.

However just because an industry is very competitive does not mean their SEO is effective.
