If you want to be popular and get listed in the top searches in Google, Bing and Yahoo, then you need to understand how you could be listed there. People have different thoughts on how to rank high in search engines.
– Some say, it’s all about content
– Some say, it’s all about the keywords
– Some say, it’s all about the name of the site
– Some say’ it’s all about the amount of traffic
The truth is, these are all important considerations however, I may say that one thing I realize is that BACKLINKS have a huge role for a website to rank. Are you not wondering why backlink checker has been popular?
Backlinks checker exists to monitor a website’s performance and ranking.
I do personally check my backlinks every week to know if I am competing well with my competitors. As the SEO experts say; if you want to rank on top, then create more backlinks for your site.
To clear things on your mind, are you familiar with:
– Blog commenting
– Forum postings
– Directory submission
– RSS Submission
– Article submission
– Video Submission
The ultimate reason why this become popular is because of BACKLINKING. Many website owners spend more time and resources just to hire Virtual Assistants to do these kinds of task. In fact, many of them even pay for this submission services.
Now, if you have been managing your website and still not focusing on checking your backlinks, I suggest this is the time for you to start monitoring. Here are some tools you can use for FREE!
1.) Seomoz.org/linkscape – Compared to those 3 other tools, this site lists backlinks not only for the index page but also to your subdomains.
2.) Tools.Seobook.Com/backlink-analyzer – Among these 4 tools, this is the one I recommend the most although if you are not technically inclined, this could be a bit confusing. Anyway, it is quite easy to learn and get familiar with. The only disadvantage I see here is that since it offers good back links analysis, still people wouldn’t know how to use it properly unless they read some guides regarding its usage. Unlike with other tools which you only need to put the website and automatically it will give you the details you need.
3.) Mjesticseo.Com – This is enough if you simply want to know the number of backlinks you have. (it shows brief details)
4.) Siteexplorer.Search.Yahoo.Com – The best thing about this site is that it monitors the RSS feed links you have from other websites.
Any of these 4 tools is effective to use. It all serves its purpose. However, you may choose based from your preference and need. If you only need to know the number of backlinks, then go for majesticseo, siteexplorer and seomoz.org/linkscape. But in case you want more a detailed link analysis, then try using tools.seobook.com/backlink-analyzer.
