Monitor Backlinks

Monitor Backlinks is perfect for any small business that has a website. Every website gets hit with spammy backlinks, and being able to identify and remove them is critical to online success, and in preventing the Google penalty. In addition, it helps SEOs locate good backlinks they might not know about, which can then be posted on social networks and social bookmarking sites to generate more referral traffic. I would not recommend Monitor Backlinks for a business that does not have a website, or for a business that only has a blog.

Netpeak Spider

[Netpeak] Spider is a great service for:
  • Checking and monitoring big websites or e-commerce projects for technical errors on regular basis
  • Creating custom formulas for calculation of internal page ranks and building a tree view with this information
  • Get reports that include metrics for every page (performance, inbound and outbound links, indexing status)
  • Create reports that include all metrics from external SEO services like Serpstat or Similarweb for every single page of your website
It's very useful software for SEO or marketing agencies that have a lot of projects to work with, but might be overkill for small projects and companies.

Pros

Monitor Backlinks

  • It is highly recommended if you have a high ranking website that is prone to competitors building spam. It makes the process if identifying, tracking and disavowing spam links fast and easy.
  • It is a good tool to track positive mentions of your site as well and does a good job monitoring the reputation of your site by picking up mentions of your website across the web.
  • It's affordable for what it does compared to its competitors and its also very easy to use. But their customer service is always there to help out in case you need it.

Netpeak Spider

  • Crawling data and metrics from every webpage on website (page structure, titles, meta tags, Google GTM & Analytics presence)
  • Building tree with calculation of internal page ranks
  • Get a report with different technical errors (404 errors, broken links, duplicated content, )
  • Performance report. Check out your page load time, server response time, extract metrics from Google Page Speed Insights
  • Checkout different metrics from external services like Serpstat, Similarweb (page ranks, keywords, traffic, etc.) for single page

Cons

Monitor Backlinks

  • A great option would be to have the ability to create organic keyword ranks for keywords in specific categories, not just keywords for our entire website. Specifically, the ability to create custom lists for keyword groups. This would be a huge time-saver for SEOs whose websites have varied keyword groups.
  • Currently, I get email notifications from Monitor Backlinks once every week or so. These emails show new backlinks and any changes in existing backlink status. I log into the platform each morning to see what is going on, but a great addition would be real-time emails that alert you when a really low-quality backlink is uncovered.

They were fast, eager to help me out on my project and very knowledgeable on how to user their product and helping me to get up and running. This gave me the confidence to purchase the product and execute my projects knowing that I could ask for help whenever needed.

Alternatives Considered

Monitor Backlinks

I used Ahrefs Site Explorer for two years, and it is a really good platform with lots of backlink tools. Ahrefs stacks up well against Monitor Backlinks, and it has slightly more features. I opted for Monitor Backlinks because it has a simple and streamlined dashboard and just the right amount of tools and features I need.

Return on Investment

Monitor Backlinks

  • It's hard to gauge the effect of negative SEO attacks but they have the power to bring your whole site down, so having a tool like this setup is really priceless.
  • Their cost is also very affordable when compared to similar tools that do not have the same functionality or level of detail that they offer on their analysis so from that perspective is a savings right from the start.
