Reviews
  • Pros: 

    Well designed.

    Cons: 

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

    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: 

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

    Cons: 

    Would be awesome if it integrated with Buzzstream.

    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.

Thanks for hunting this Ben. I really appreciate the Product Hunt community sharing this as my goal is to help all startups with their SEO and I believe they shouldn't have to pay money to generate more traffic. If you are wondering what Backlinks does: 1. You can easily see who links to you or your competitors. This helps you figure what links you need to build to rank higher on Google. 2. Now link reports are integrated into Ubersuggest. You can see who links to a site's most popular pages. 3. You can see a site's domain score. Typically the higher the number the higher a site will rank. 4. You can filter links by almost anything you want. From anchor text to zones... you can drill down to the type of links you are interested in. This way you aren't spending hours trying to find new opportunities. Oh and if you use Ubersuggest on a regular basis, you may have to hard refresh or clear your cache to see the new Backlinks feature/report.

@neilpatel Is there any way to show the actual significance of sites on domains like Medium, Weebly, WordPress.com, blogger, etc.? Or do you believe the high DAs those sites enjoy extends to content published on them?

Woah... Another stellar tool from the creator of CrazyEgg & Kissmetrics :) I've actually tested Backlinks last week and found it very useful - it has similar functionalities to ahrefs only its...free. I also love the ease of use and "no clutter" interface where the results are in your face without needing to keep tabbing. Good stuff!

@nadavdakner thanks for the kind words. My goal is to make SEO easy and affordable (free) for everyone. Especially startups.

I just tested this tool for a couple of my sites and got new interesting data to work on. I liked the Top SEO Pages section and the SEO keywords tab gave me new content ideas. Bookmarked. I'll use it later with each of my websites. It's unusual to get something free, nowadays, so thank you for this handy tool @neilpatel !

Congrats Neil for another SEO tool. But now I'm wondering, what are the differentiator points between Ahrefs, Moz and Majestic in this category of backlinks?

Neil PatelMaker@neilpatel
@katairobi not much... and within a few months I will take the premium features and release more of them for free. Just takes a bit of time for development. :/ Next month I will release a version of Buzzsumo with more data for free. ;)
