Check My Links
Check My Links is a simple, yet effective backlink tool for beginners.
This Google Chrome extension shows you all the valid and broken links on a website.
It highlights the valid links in green and the invalid ones in red.
So you can always and everywhere look for broken links for your broken link building strategy.

You get from “Monitor Backlinks” an SEO metric of:

Everyone who deals with SEO knows that backlinks on websites is still a big ranking factor for Google, so it’s not far-fetched to use Ubersuggest for creating your future link building strategies.
Let me give you a quick demonstration of Ubersuggest.
You can view your competitor’s link profile in just 3 steps.
Step number 1:
Enter your competitor’s domain name in the search box.
Step number 2:
Now you have an overall view of your competitor’s backlink profile.
Scroll down until you hit the “Backlinks” item.
Step number 3:
You can now filter your results into DoFollow or NoFollow links.
Analyze the backlinks and create your future link building strategy based on the profiles you have analyzed.
To achieve a good long-term position in the SERP’s, a proper backlink profile is necessary.
As a rule, a backlink has been obtained, but is not yet displayed in the many SEO analysis tools,
only days later.
With Linkstant you have the mega advantage that you can be informed immediately about every won or lost backlink.
Here are three more advantages that you have with Linkstant:
- It can be an insane motivation to be directly informed about your gained backlinks.
- It lets you know early on who is interested in your content. (Maybe you can integrate this into your current link building strategy.
- You can see at a glance why this source is linking to your website and thus act faster e.g. in case of negative feedback about product or service.
