It’s not something new that a good source of link ideas can come from your competitors.
You already know that!
And you probably already use this source for getting new and valuable link information. But if you do not use it, then you should start looking into it. That is because using your competitors research for links lets you build more links faster and thus, overcome them.
But this is not exactly an easy job to do, right?
Stealing link ideas from your competitors involves a lot of work and is not always that effective. Each of your competitors has hundreds or thousands of links and going through each of them to find those you could also get, means long hours of hard work. Not to mention that you might not even find to many link ideas there and all that work would be for nothing.
But, you shouldn’t give up!
You know that links are extremely important for your rankings and the more you have, the better you rank. Thus the greater the traffic to your website gets, the bigger your revenues will get. So, hang in there!
On the contrary! I suggest you to analyze as many competitors or related websites as you can, so you find as many link ideas as possible and then, get them!
And no, I’m not that evil (although, some people might say that about me ) to suggest you to spend days and days going through endless lists of links and to visit thousand of useless websites, looking for a link to get.
I have a better idea!
What would you say if you could get at once, the list of links from all your competitors? It would be much easier, right? You wouldn’t have tens of list to merge, sort and analyze. It would be just one!
Advanced Link Manager enables you to do just that! You can select as many competitors as you want and it gathers the links from all of them in one single list.
And, what would you say if you wouldn’t have to check each link to see if you have it already or if you have checked it before from another competitor? You could go straight to work and start getting the links!
Good news again! When Advanced Link Manager builds the list of links from your competitors, it automatically removes the links from domains you already have links from. So you can be sure that the links it suggests to you are links you don’t have.
On top of that, you can find what links your competitors have in common! If two of your top competitors have links from the same domain, it means, for one, that is a link you could also get, and secondly, that is a quite reliable source as more than one of your competitors have it. These are long hanging fruits for you! These are both valuable and easy to get links!
Just select the competitors you want to compare and intersect their links. There you have your list of common links! Quite easy, right?
It gets even better!
Now let’s think on the long term! After you’ve done the competitive link analysis, you gathered some nice links from your competitors and you’re all cheerful, what comes next? You’re done with link building for ever?
Of course, not! You will come back for more!
And the good news is that you won’t have to start the research all over again.
Advanced Link Manager will tell you what has changed from the last time you looked at your competitors links and you can analyze only the new links he’s got. You can do that by applying a filter that displays only the new added links. Advanced Link Manager compares the results it gathers with those from the last update, so you can know what links have been added, which have been removed or changed in your competitors link profiles. This way, recurrent competitive link analysis is a piece of cake!
