Moz Link Explorer

If you would like a high-level overview of how healthy your backlink profile is, Link Explorer is a simple, straightforward and easy to understand tool for that. You can easily get a sense of how many backlinks, and what types of backlinks your website has and what types of anchor texts are used to link to your website. You can keep track of new and lost links over time as well as group spammy links in a folder. Furthermore, you can compare your backlink profile with that of other websites such as a competitor’s domain.

Pros

Moz Link Explorer

  • It links in with Moz’s domain authority concept, which we use as our main metric of how well our SEO works.
  • It shows you which sites link to you, and ranks to them by domain authority. This helps us understand where our best inbound links come from, and to hopefully target those valuable partners for more links.
  • It shows you which keywords you rank for, your position on the search engine results pages for each keyword, and how difficult it is to rank for those keywords. We use this to spot where we rank on the second or third page for medium difficulty keywords. We’ll then write content to target those keywords.

  • Creates nice pdf reports with all the important information.
  • It indexes the entered keywords from our site within minutes and separates out the text, images, videos, local, etc.
  • The competitor analysis is very detailed.

Cons

Moz Link Explorer

  • Lack of instant export of data. Adds to a queue rather than being instant.
  • Advanced reports are needed for larger websites and come at the cost of a subscription to Moz Pro.

  • Lacks powerful knowledge base

I put a middling score here because of the difference in support between the free and premium uses. The Free tool was a great service, but there wasn't much support. It was tool that was intended to have a skilled SEO utilize it and save time. The Premium version has great support, but also offered more information so that skilled SEOs and novices alike could benefit from the tool.

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

Moz Link Explorer

I think Moz Link Explorer is a great add-on to the overall Moz tool, but compared to Ahrefs, it’s not as robust because Ahrefs' main focus is on the backlink profile. I like SEMRush’s function of being able to reach out to websites directly from the platform and track all of your progress in there.

- Viralstat is specifically used for YouTube ranking. RankWatch is focused on Google Ranking. - Google Ad Manager is too complicated to use. - RankWatch sends us weekly emails with compact information, with no need to do anything else.
