Link Prospecting Tool

About Link Prospecting

The Link Prospecting Tool simplifies the search for web pages that are good candidates for a backlink. If you have collected a list of web pages, reach out to the author and ask him to create a link to your page.

Using the Link Prospecting Tool

To start, the tool needs one or more keywords. Alternatively, you can enter URLs to the URL Importer, and scan them directly. The tool analyzes the search results for the entered keywords or URLs. You will receive a list of potential link creators and, in the second tab, the recognized competition pages. Competing pages are pages with the most backlinks count from the currently displayed link creator pages. Each result shows the following information: domain / URL, title, relationship, top keyword, relevance, number of follow and no-follow links. Additionally, on the left is a link that shows a popup that displays further details: keyword and SERP rank and list of linked domains.

Filtering the results

Different filters allow further narrowing of the search results. This includes searching for specific links and link type: follow / no-follow. You can search for keywords in the URL or title. Furthermore, you can sort according to certain key figures (number of links, relevance, keyword rank).

Broken Link Scanner

The broken link scanner finds faulty links. It displays the number of broken links after completion. By clicking on the number a detail popup with URL, result code and error description appears. Create new backlinks by applying the broken link building strategy:

  • Find a web page with a broken link
  • Check if you can replace the broken link with one of your web pages
  • Reach out to the author
  • Ask him to replace the faulty link with your link

Relationship Management

In the Relationship column of the ‘Link Creators’ results several icons can be activated: Favorite, Contacted, Receive Backlink, Comment, Uninteresting URL and Delete. You can enter a comment here. To hide a result click on the delete icon and it will no longer be displayed in further searches. If one of the icons is activated, the relationship status will be saved and the same relationship information will be displayed for future results with this URL or domain. All URLĀ“s with information in the relationship column appear automatically in the Relationships Tool and can be edited there at any time.
