Ahrefs is a well-known tool primarily used for checking backlinks, but what most SEOs forget to take into consideration is that it is capable of so much more. With their massive data index, Ahrefs is definitely one of the most sought-after SaaS tools out in the market. Tools such as this helped eradicate the days wherein Google gets played by unethical, black hat SEO tactics. They helped the industry turn for the better, and SEO has never been simpler. With the tools such as Ahrefs being available in the market, it became simple for us to get better at what we do.
Linkbuilding is one of the things we are intricate with in our SEO Services. One of the best tools to use out there is Link Research Tools. I know I have reviewed them a handful of times already so this time, it’s going to be a bit different. I’m going to cover all the improvements they’ve made from my last review of them up to today.
First situation: Domain of the backlink which you bought/sold expired
Problem 1: You buy an advertisement or a backlink from website “A”. How do you find out if “A” website has expired or the domain has been parked?
Problem 2: You sell a backlink or advertise a banner from your “B” site, but you will forget to renew the domain (which will also affect your client, because he will lose some link juice).
With so many companies and businesses vying for the top spot in search engines, there can be no doubt that internet marketing and in particular, search engine optimization (SEO), is on a roll. Whether you’re a professional marketer or part of your company’s in-house marketing team, I’m sure that you’ll need (and want) to acquire tools that can make your job easier.
With the Penguin and EMD updates you really need to understand your links. The time when having a bunch of links that would increase your rankings (no matter where they are coming from) is long gone. After the Penguin update, Google has become much smarter and can analyze link profiles like never before.
Anyone who’s been exposed to search engine optimization (SEO) will definitely say that links play a BIG, if not the biggest, part in it. If you think about SEO as the elections, what would it take to win in it…the answer: VOTES.
Just recently, I’ve been contacted by a handful of SEO tool developers asking for reviews for their new Link Management and Backlink Checking tools. This sudden surge of tools are mostly a result of the shutdown of Yahoo Site Explorer. It’s the perfect time to launch tools that can catch the market that Yahoo Site Explorer has just let go. Quick backlinks tool or QBL by Link Research Tools, is one of these such tools.
Yahoo Site Explorer has raised the white flag. Bye, old friend. What now? Well, we look for other alternatives of course! It would be so good if we could get free Yahoo Site Explorer alternatives, since YSE is free. So I looked up some of the free backlink checking tools out there and I’ve listed some of them down. But first, a little scrutiny over Bing.
Looking around the net for a Yahoo Site Explorer Alternative made me stumble upon a lot of different backlink-checking tool. There were some good ones, there were some bad ones, and then there was SEO Spyglass – which I thought is the closest I can get to retrieve the glory that Yahoo Site Explorer basked me with. I was badly mistaken.
