Agency Analytics

Well suited for small agencies such as ours. Maybe not suitable or overkill for solo entrepreneurs. Not sure. But it's a great tool for small teams

Pros

  • Tracks Google search queries
  • Manages links gained and lost
  • Allows us to sculpt and streamline Google Analytics and Search console dats

  • Quick Links - it provides an outrageously thorough backlink profile in no time. You can see mentions of a URL and what anchor text is connected to you instantly.
  • Disavow - using the disavow tool has helped clean up some of our particularly toxic clients in a very quick way. It's amazing.
  • Comparing competitors - looking at our competitors and being able to see what link juice they have and how we can utilize that is wonderful.

Cons

  • More granular control over each module.
  • Ability to limit the number of results in each module. For Facebook results, for example, we get multiple pages of results when I'd prefer to just include top 10 or top 20, etc. Not every single one.
  • Faster report generation.

Alternatives Considered

We stopped using RavenTools because the report rendering was ridiculously slow.

Link Research Tools are the only tools that gives us the most backlinks. No other tools finds as many backlinks to the website than LRT. LRT takes Backlinks from 25 Sources, even historic Backlinks from Majestic (>5 Years). It is very important if you disavow links that you have the best view on the links and that you can have as many Backlinks as possible for your audit.

Return on Investment

  • Very affordable at $99 a month. While we don't charge clients for it we only offer it for our premium, full-service accounts.
  • It makes the work we do "official" and substantiates the work we do.
  • I feel it legitimizes our SEO work.

  • This service is invaluable. It is one of, if not the best, tool that our company employs. It opens up possibilities for so many opportunities to clean up our clients from toxic SEO companies. A good portion of our job is making sure they are not toxic, so it helps to have a tool like this.
  • Link Research Tools also helps tremendously with lateral-thinking link building. Going down an anchor text rabbit hole can lead to amazing results which can augment our clients and help boost their profiles. We can become aware of new link opportunities with the URLs Link Research Tools presents.
  • It improves the value of the websites for our clients. By visibly seeing what anchor text ranks where, we know what to target and what we can improve on. We can see what is not sticking and try to improve it.
