Have you ever needed to get the link data for a website and ended up having totally different results coming from similar sources?
Why didn’t they provide with the same results? How are you supposed to know which one are the REAL ones?
And if you think of all the hours you’ve spent just to get to this dead end….
And this is not the only inconvenience you have when querying the search engines for link data…
But there are solutions for these problems. Let me break them down for you:
Have certainty over your link data
The reason why the search engines and other link databases (such as OpenSiteExplorer) provide different results is because they are not too frequently updated and links have changed since the last time they were checked. Some new ones may have appeared and others may have been removed.
Mobile phones wouldn’t be so great if you would still have to remember all the telephone numbers stored in it, right?
Or if you would have to walk around, carrying a telephone numbers agenda…. That would be awful!
The same way, you should neither deal with enormous lists of emails to be able to contact your link partners!
Or search through your entire pile of messages (and I know you have one ) to find your latest conversation with some partner of yours!
Therefore I’ve put together a small list of features that will make your work easier and will get you addicted to this tool for keeping contact with your link partners. Continue reading
Links to your webpages, come and go.
Maybe today you have gained a few links but also lost others.
You can never know what changes have been made within your link profile, unless you monitor your links. Of course, there are probably hundreds or thousands of them, but don’t panic.
Monitoring is not as hard as it is to build. All you need to do is to use the right tool.
So, let me resume the main things you should do on a current base to stay on top of your link profile.
Have you ever wondered if your links are good enough or if your link building strategy is paying off?
To answer this you would probably have to:
- Make a list of all pages linking to you and to your competitors and compare them
- Evaluate the quality of these links (by page rank, mozRank etc)
- Get an overall value of your website and your competitors websites based on the previous data you have gathered
- Finally, discover the value of your link profile
Where to start from?
On the web there are several sources of link data you can use, such as OpenSiteExplorer, Yahoo! SiteExplorer, SEMRush. They can help you get the information you need for this type of analysis. But the bad news is that this data has to be manually processed in order to extract some insights out of it. Continue reading
Increase Link Popularity
Have you ever asked yourself how to find new ways of getting more backlinks? Everyone does.
Some people enhance search engine optimization campaigns using web stats software, conduct effective keyword research, analyze backlinks or write a better copy of their websites. But you can add extra value to a campaign by conducting a competitive link analysis.
Anyone knows the value of inbound links in a search engine optimization campaign and you bet your competitors already have some good backlinks pointing to them. But what if you could find those websites and get yourself the high quality backlinks they already have?
Sounds good, but let’s see how we can do this using Advanced Link Manager: by analyzing your competitor’s referrers to find you new link partners and find a way to get a link from them. Continue reading
Analyze Domain Quality is a new feature available from the version 7.0, which allows you to analyze the quality of one or multiple domains.

The Analyze Domain Quality tool helps you check if a link from a specific domain can add value to your link popularity.
You can access the Analyze Domain Quality from the [Tools] menu. In the new window you can add domains manually, import them from a file or by parsing an URL. Continue reading

- Links from authority websites – These links should be your start point in a link building campaign because they can make the difference in you rankings
- Directory links – Try to stick to the most important ones, like Yahoo Directory, DMOZ, Best of the Web, Business.com and also add some industry specific directories (you can search for those using your industry specific keyword and “directory”)
- Blogs – Links from relevant blogs with targeted anchor text will add value to your link popularity
- Online PR – Can have good value if you can use the targeted anchor text
