This module allows you to add and monitor your website’s backlinks as well as get data on their main parameters and the parameters of the pages they link out to, such as:
- Status (Found/Not found)
- Google indexation status
- Anchor text
- Target URL
- Backlink type (dofollow or nofollow)
- Alexa rank
- Number of Facebook shares
- Number of backlinks on external resources
- Referring IP address
You can add backlinks by either uploading a text file with a new backlink on each line, or automatically import them from your Google Search Console account.
How to find
The module can be accessed via the left-hand vertical navigation bar.
Alternatively, you can access it from the Dashboard by hovering over a project, clicking the Kebab Menu icon and selecting the “Backlink Monitoring” option from the list.
Once the Backlink Monitoring module opens up, the “Backlinks” tab will provide you with a quick analysis of all added backlinks. You will find graphs that allow you to immediately estimate the total number of backlinks and their growth dynamics, view how many backlinks were added and lost over the past 3, 6 and 12 months, the ratio of backlinks leading to the homepage and other pages, as well as the ratio of dofollow and nofollow backlinks.
All of the added backlinks can also be analyzed by referring domains, anchors, and linked pages. You can also check the number of unique IPs or subnets that link out to the analyzed domain/URL, and see the list of links that you marked “Disavow”. To do this, go to the appropriate tab in the Backlink Monitoring module.
Under each of these tabs, you will find graphs for quick analysis along with tables with all the parameters of the analyzed referring domains, anchors, etc.
Depending on your subscription plan, each account has a limited number of backlinks that can be added for monitoring. To see how many backlinks your plan provides, go to the “Subscription” section where you can also increase the account limit.
