Overall Satisfaction with Link Research Tools

For us, we use Link Research Tools to help clean up clients and look for link building opportunities. We use it for ourselves as well as our clients. It has been tremendously beneficial and incredibly educational to see what our own weaknesses are. Also, it shows us how effective other competitors are being when looking for ways to compete in the cutthroat market of SEO.
  • 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.
  • Accessibility - the layout is not as intuitive as it should be. Of course, this is a professional tool and not meant for the faint of heart. However, the design elements could be more intuitive.
  • Redundant tools - our company utilizes several of the tools to help audit and augment our client profiles. Some of the tools may be a bit redundant. However, it's not a terribly big deal, as we just don't use those tools.
  • Limited searches for certain price points - I understand that there has to be competitive pricing especially with the level that Link Research Tools is offering. However, it would be nice to have unlimited searches.
  • 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.
Link Research Tools far surpasses any other SEO tool on the market. Raven and Authority Labs are sufficient tools we use, but their use primarily extends to tracking some keywords. Google Search Console also becomes less and less user friendly the more time goes on. In a time where SEO tools are becoming less and less friendly, Link Research Tools is the most transparent, most effective tool you can use. Also, using Link Research Tools is like opening a waterfall. Be prepared for all of the information you are about to give. It is all tremendously valuable. I know I've used a lot of descriptors, but it really is a great tool.
Link Research Tools is best for setting up link profiles for new clients. It allows you to see strategic anchor text and lets you optimize your sites to match and surpass competitors, giving you even footing. It is not best suited for those who are just starting out in SEO. There is a learning curve to use the tool, so be prepared to spend a minimum of ten hours really digging in to the tool.
