Backlinks has similar functionalities to ahrefs and Majestic SEO, basically allow you to review and analyze your backlinks portfolio (and your competitors as well) and it also helps you search for good linkage opportunities. Whats good about it is that it's free and very very simple to use (like Ubersuggest), so in other words in very easy to use.

Pros:

Its a very robust platform, easy to use and most importantly free!

Cons:

extremely sophisticated reporting are still in development.

Hidden comment

During my first search, the system presented several false positives on no-followed links. No doubt this tool has promise, but it still needs some work.

Pros:

Well designed.

Cons:

A few false positives on no-followed links showing up.

I'm a daily Ubersuggest user, Your tool helped me reach a few top locations, and I'm sure that this awesome backlinks tool will be an essential part in my SEO strategy

Pros:

Created by marketing expert for all SEOs

Cons:

Haven't Found Any

I've been using SEO tools that claimed to be 'Free' but they always limit the results and just try to convert me into a paying customer. This new backlinks section is just insane.

Pros:

- Free... but for real - This tool made by one of the best SEO experts out there, so I'm pretty sure the results are reliable.

Cons:

- None

It's easily the best user interface for a SEO tool on the market. And it's free. What else can you wish for? Only thing that was a bit annoying is the Services link that 1) throws you into a different UI and 2) loads a survey on top of everything. The "Services" and other top links should probably just open a new tab, indicating that you're now surfing on the consulting page and not using the tool anymore. But it's a minor thing.

Pros:

Very easy to use interface. Landing page offers a lot of languages and explains the product well.

Cons:

None, considering you know what you're doing.

I tried it on my website, and the results are similar to the SEO tool I'm paying 99$/month for Clean and beautiful design. Insanely practical tool.

Pros:

Great tool that you can use for free!

Cons:

Reporting is still under development.

Thank You for this Free SEO Tool

Pros:

A Handy Free SEO Tool

Cons:

None Seen :))

Its going ti change my life

Pros:

Just amazing ! Súper helpfull

Cons:

Non, for now

It would be nice to somehow know the relative value of content on sites like Medium, Blogger, WordPress.com, etc. Are they actually as valuable as those sites' domains would lead you to believe when shown in tools like this?

Pros:

Easier to use than the average SEO tool which is far more complex.

Cons:

Nofollow or dofollow is inaccurate. HuffingtonPost, Wikipedia and even some comment links show up as dofollow.

This is the second free product I've used from Neil Patel and I found both easy to use.

Pros:

I love that this tool provides so much info about sharing & competition - and it's free. I used it and got a kick out of it.

Cons:

None so far!

I have been blogging for over 6 years. Just over 5 years ago, I started my business, Wording Well. I built up both my site and my business during this time. My website has a good DA and PA. I follow Neil Patel regurlarly and implement his advice whenever I can. I also use the tools he recommends, including Ubersuggest, Google Search Console, and others. Backlinks has now been added to the mix. What I love is is ease of use. I'm not very techie and so I need something that's not too hard to understand. This is, by far, the easiest tool to use! I just started using it today and I LOVE it! It was really nice to see the word "GREAT" by my website score of 72, too! :)

Pros:

This tool is so easy to use! I love it!

Cons:

Neil has thought of everything. I don't see how it can be improved!

That's a minor gripe, and how can I complain about something free? Thanks Neil for another great tool.

Pros:

It's easy to use and intuitive. Well laid our report. And it's free!

Cons:

Could maybe explain about the drop-down box for domain etc.

I've used Ubersuggest for months and love it!

Pros:

It's a useful tool and FREE.

Cons:

It will take a litlte time to learn how much you can do with it but it's quick and fairly easy for anyone to use

Presented a tonne of useful results that I can use as part of my linkbuilding and outreach process. csv export handy.

Pros:

Quick and easy to use. Great UX

Cons:

maybe link to some training on what I can do with this data? :)

I've built and sold an SEO-driven apartment hunting site, run SEO for places like RetailMeNot, and launched an SEO tool company (Buzzstream), and I still can't get enough link building data! If you can't afford to pay for a tool, this is a no-brainer place to start. The reality is that promoting your site and getting links is harder than ever, but just as important as ever.

Pros:

Free data, what's not to like? Modern, fast UI.

Cons:

Would be awesome if it integrated with Buzzstream.

I just say this tool is awesome and it is now a essential part in my SEO things.

Pros:

Easy to use and super helpful

Cons:

Not for now
