If you have any problems with your rankings or a decrease in ranking position within google it is very good to make an Link Audit with the Link Research Tools. Then you Screen all Links manually and setup your disavow-file easily. With the Link Detox Boost you gain Rankings back so fast. The last time we used it for a client, we got back the rankings within a week to 170 Positions within the Top Ten, even Position 1.

Cons

They were not cooperative at all. They just said this is not in our policies, we will get back to you, etc. The mail that comes in is confusing. Should be a support panel or chat on the site instead.

Alternatives Considered
LinkResearchTools
LinkResearchTools is much more advanced in analyzing links. Period. All the other mentioned tools have many useful features for SEO but LRT is definitely the way to go for backlink analysis, link building, and competition analysis. They also offer very nice and quality courses for improving SEO knowledge. I already attended one of them and I am very satisfied with the knowledge I gained.
