Checking backlinks - Frequently Asked Questions

Post  seo back link on Thu Nov 22, 2012 10:03 pm

I have just finished a huge campaign for my new site, and I am trying to find an effective way to check backlinks. Google Webmasters tools and Yahoo Site Explore give me COMPLETELY different answers. Which one is most reliable for SEO?

I find the most reliable to be MajesticSEO.

Im not sure if Yahoo Site Explorer is updating anymore because yahoo are closing the service down soon. It doesn't seem to be updating, looking at the SEOQuake toolbar.

I use a free downloadable program called SEO spyglass. It takes longer than using some of these web services, but it gives lots more info like anchor text, PR of the site linking from, etc.

Hi fellows,

Please, realize that the OP is banned, probably not without any reason. I saw he started many different threads today, and is banned also today.

So, please, don't feed the troll.

Best,

Harquin

Banned or not, I'm looking for the same info. The Yahoo has to old backlinks, because Yahoo Explorer doesn't work anymore. I was looking for the MajesticSEO but it's to expensive for me at that moment. Is there any alternative for MajesticSEO ?

Regards.

As I know, MajesticSEO has a free version you can use (of course, depending on your need of data).

An alternative solution may be for you SEOmoz, and you can use it free for 30 days.

I don't use one either, so I cannot express an opinion about them.

All the best,

Descoteaux

In my opinion, We should consider Google Webmaster Tools for the backlink count. If you want to rank on Google just check which links Google are considering as Backlink.

Why we should look at backlinks on other tools. They just give the number of links submitted in various websites not the actual backlinks which Google consider as ranking signal. This is my thinking though.

MajesticSEO is best to check backlinks. Even Google Webmaster also shows more number of links now a days. Yahoo Explorer is not updated and they are going to close explorer in December.

One of the easiest way is to use an online tool like Backlink Checker

This will give you dofollow/nofollow indicator, anchor text and also optional other outbound links from that page.

For a free tool, SERPAttacks is good.

They also have a paid version if you like the free one and decide to upgrade. I have an affiliate link for it, but I wont post it in here. If you want my link just PM me, I'd be glad to send it over.

I personally use Scrapebox though.

Here is their discount link if you want to check that out as well though. cheapskate - ScrapeBox

I use the MajesticSEO and Yahoo Site Explorer through Market Samurai, but I may have to give that free version of the link checker from ScrapeBox a try...looks interesting.

We use Open Site Explorer from SEOMoz. You need to pay to get all the data though.
