If you are a webmaster, you need to do backlinks research because backlinks is one of vital factor that you need to make your website reach good position on Google search result page. And the backlinks show the real situation: who is paying attention to the page you are interested in. The quantity and quality of backlinks are significant indicators of site popularity.
So in this post I will tell you a brand new Backlinks Research Tool – AHREFS.
With this tool you can do :
- analyze your own sites backlinks (for free!)
- analyze any other sites backlinks as a research about your competitor;
- visually compare several sites
- get quick summary for any url (limited free access)
So if you are doing link building for your website or you are a SEO Specialist, maybe this tool will be really useful for you to track your link building progress. It has free plan that I think enough for a personal/small business website owner to analyze their website backlinks. For “Free Account” it is limited to 15 request per day, and the result limited to 1000 pages, 1000 backlinks, 10 anchors, 100 domains and 10 subnets.
Another free backlinks research tool is Yahoo Site Explorer , I use it too . So AHREFS could be another alternative tool for backlink research
