Backink Analyzer Options
This is a tool that you will need to download. This tool was developed by SEO Book. This tool is similar to Link Diagnosis except that it is not a web app, it is an application that is on your computer. There are also many extra options you can select when it comes to finding backlinks.
You also have the options of which specific search engines you wish to check or if you wish to check them all. One of the drawbacks to this tool is the amount of links it will report back to you. As of right now it is only reporting 1000 links which is similar to Yahoo Site Explorer but the benefit is that you will be able to see a lot more information about those links.Majestic SEO (cost: $.50 to $5.00 a report) – This is by far the most thorough report you will ever get from any of the backlink tools I have posted. The major drawback is that it does cost money and it seems to depend on how large of a backlink profile you have determines how much it will cost. The benefit to this is that you will receive 90% of your backlinks (some backlinks may have been missed by their bots… it happens).
While you get tons and tons of information about your links which is great; the problem is that it is tons and tons of information so it could take you a little while to go through, though it is completely worth it. This is also extremely helpful when looking at your competitors backlinks and knowing how many of a certain link text they may have and the type of sites that are linking to them.
- SEOMoz’s Backlink Analysis Tool (cost:$79-$229 a month for pro membership) – This is the most expensive of all the tools and not because of this tool specifically but because of the many tools that you get when signing up for their pro membership. The Backlink Analysis Tool is just one of the great tools that you will gain access to as a Pro Member. While I feel that it is not the best one out there, it can be very helpful for a quick glance at your backlinks. It also saves the reports for you so you can easily check back on it to see any improvements.
Although I would not buy this membership for this tool alone, SEOMoz has a wide variety of tools for us SEO’s to use. I do highly recommend that you or your company sign up for those and use them all together.
I hope some of these tools are new to you and will provide some benefit to you in your quest to gain more solid backlinks. As always I’d love to hear from all of you as far as what tools you use when doing your link building. Until next time… Happy Thanksgiving!!
