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.

Ubersuggest

Ubersuggest is a good tool to get basic insight into your website's position in Google and keywords. You can make big lists with suggestions around a specific keyword, questions, and comparison of keywords. When you first open the page, it's really easy to navigate and use, so it's perfect for beginners. And it's still powerful enough for advanced users. If you are a small company with only a handful of clients, that's okay. But if you are bigger, then there are better and more complete tools on the market if you want more functionality and more in-depth information, like better competition research, ad spying, etc.

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.

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.

  • Nothing really--it's complete as it is for the price.
  • Numbers are not always correct but this is basic with multiple tools.
  • They could add a page scan to see how well a page scores.

It's really easy to use. The interface is nice and tidy, and the learning curve is low. So it's a tool that's accessible for everyone. If not, there are plenty of guides in the tool itself or on the website. You can easily make lists and export data for use or to share, connect Google Drive, and go work with a team.

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.

It's on the cheaper side, so for starters on a budget, you can use the free version or the cheaper paid one. Other tools offer way more functions but can also be overwhelming that way. Ubersuggest is going with the times. If you are a beginner or small company, use Ubersuggest. If you are bigger and need WAY more information than the basic research go for tools like SEMRush and Ahrefs.

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.

  • We created content based on recommendations and it became an evergreen content.
