Backlink check

Backlink analysis, assessment of the quality of the analyzed domain from the point of view of the link profile, checking the level of spam, and displaying the latest placed links for a complete and comprehensive analysis.

Why Check Backlinks?

Identifying Poor and Broken Links

Low-quality or broken links won't benefit your website and may even harm its search engine ranking. Regularly reviewing your site's incoming links helps identify potentially harmful or spammy ones. Removing or disavowing these links is crucial.

Competitor Analysis

Using backlink tools, you can examine any domain, whether it's yours or a competitor's. This lets you compare the mix of natural and purchased links and discover their donor domains, which might also be beneficial for your site.

Avoiding Search Engine Penalties

Purchasing backlinks in large quantities can lead to penalties from search engines, resulting in lower search rankings. Poor-quality backlinks might also cause your site to be de-indexed, making recovery difficult.

Protecting Your Site's Reputation

Your website's reputation can suffer from low-quality backlinks. Competitors might even use spammy links to outrank you. It's important to find and reject such links before search engines index them.

Finding Donor Domains for Link Placement

When assessing potential donor domains, consider their relevance to your site, their trustworthiness and reputation in search engines (indicated by Trust Rank and Domain Rank), and check for spam and natural link profiles to avoid search engine penalties.


What's the Ideal Proportion of Natural Links?

Ideally, a domain should have 70-80% natural links and 20-30% purchased links. Ensure that purchased links are placed on quality, thematically relevant resources.

Which Links Harm a Site?

Primarily, spammy links from low-rated, non-themed domains with excessive ads and low-quality content are harmful. Search engines might be suspicious of:

  • Links from irrelevant pages.
  • Links with no user engagement.
  • Placements on ad-heavy, spammy sites.
  • Links from dubious niches like gambling or adult content.
  • Hidden links.
  • Exact match anchor text links in excess.

What Links Benefit a Site?

Aim for links from trustworthy domains with good ratings, relevant themes, and growing traffic. Ideal links should:

  • Lead from a relevant, high-ranking domain.
  • Point to quality, thematically similar sites.
  • Be limited in number on the donor page.
  • Have content matching both the donor and recipient sites.
  • Feature natural anchors like “read here” or “source.”
  • Be integrated into the text, surrounded by relevant content.

Why is Anchor Text Important?

Anchor text gives context to search engines, helping them assess a link's relevance. Inconsistent anchors might flag a link as spam. Effective anchors often contain exact query matches, but avoid overuse to prevent an unnatural link profile. Mix in brand and partial match anchors for balance.

What Penalties Can Poor-Quality Links Incur?

Low-quality or spammy links can lead to reduced search rankings or complete removal from search results. This applies to individual pages or entire domains.
