Remove a Google Penalty


Have you been hit by a penalty like Google Penguin? Did you receive a Google Manual Action penalty notification in your Google Search Console account? Regain your lost visibility and organic traffic quick and easy with LinkResearchTools!

Make Google Disavow File Work Faster


Link Detox Boost helps you make Google take notice of your disavow file faster. All disavowed links need to be recrawled by Google first, just uploading the file won’t cut it. You cannot afford to wait for months until Google maybe recrawls the links in your disavow file. We help you speed up your recovery process. Our clients recovered from a Google Penalty in even as little as 3 days after using Link Detox Boost.

Recover link juice after a site migration


When relaunching a website often links get lost due to lack of redirects. Sending users of search engines to error pages is not a good idea and costs your rankings and conversions. We find all the problems for you and delivery a quick fix (.htaccess file) for your webserver.

You can recover surprising amounts of link juice after a website redesign or migration with LinkResearchTools (LRT) in minutes.

Monitor inbound links


Easily keep track of your inbound links and your link growth as easy as Google Alert. Link Alerts (LA) and the Link Check Tool (LCT) notify you via E-Mail when new links or changes are found.

Of course you can also monitor your competitor's  backlinks and learn about new link opportunities and their marketing tactics.

Build good and Penguin-safe Links faster


You can build high-quality and “penguin-safe” low-risk links much faster with LinkResearchTools (LRT) than with any other tool.

By allowing you to simulate the risk of a potential new link we provide a function that you won’t find elsewhere. And if you find someone who copied us again on this, be sure to only trust the proven Link Detox Genesis® algorithm that saved ten-thousands of websites.

We believe that you should not build any new links without having them in a Link Opportunity Audit of Link Detox (DTOX) or the LORT Tool that we provide.

Provide your clients links with low link risk and a premium quality approved by Link Detox® for every link in no time.

Restore powerful link profiles of an Expired Domain


 You can use the Link Juice Recovery Tool (LJR) to quickly restore powerful link profiles of an expired domain. The highly efficient development of link networks, also called “private blog networks” or PBN, also by bullet proofing them with Link Detox (DTOX) using LinkResearchTools (LRT) is a very popular use case of many SEOs.

Using LinkResearchTools (LRT) you can not only avoid many common footprints and patterns of simple link networks, but also save tremendous amounts of time and money.

But beware: if you engage in these SEO tactics and try to shortcut, then you might get into conflicts with the Google guidelines and may be hit by the Google Penguin algorithm.

Improve your existing backlinks


You can analyze your full backlink profile by crawling the anchor text and link status for each link. With 97 SEO metrics available for each link and up-to-the-minute accuracy you can quickly decide which anchor text or ALT text is missing and initiate corrective actions.

By understanding the ratios of your niche for Text vs. Image, Follow vs. Nofollow, Brand vs. Money Keywords links and so much more in minutes you will get a deep understanding on the best way to move forward with your SEO strategy.

Backlink Analysis

Backlink analysis is the daily task of an SEO. Without the right tools, it’s just not fun and can become a messy and time-consuming job. Who enjoys spending his day in Excel, knowing that the data copy/pasted is not only incomplete but inaccurate as well. Well, the “links”-department of the All-In-One-SEO tool has some interface to offer, a window to “their index only”.

Just looking at a part of the link graph is a bit boring, isn’t it?

LinkResearchTools makes backlink analysis easy for you. The backlink data combined from 25 backlink sources, your own external data APIs like Ahrefs, your file uploads and data from the Google Search Console (Google Webmaster Tools).

Since it’s not the size (of the link list) but the quality that matters, we take that raw input data and re-crawl it for you – figure out things like link status (is the link status still there, or changed to No-Follow) as well as 97 other SEO metrics from external systems.

The advantages of all this come to play in the full analysis modes of many of our tools.

For a quick look and “getting a gut feeling” we also offer faster “sample” modes for all tools.

The Quick Backlinks tool (QBL) helps you perform a quick analysis of the backlink profile for a domain or page. You can develop a “gut feeling” based on charts and tables. You can also filter and review every single link with our powerful filters. Of course, you can export as well.

The Backlink Profiler (BLP) helps you make the step to a full and detailed analysis of the backlink profile through crawling the anchor text and link status for each link as well as up to 97 metrics that help you determine the quality of your backlinks. As a reward, you get the most complete, most up-to-date and most accurate backlink analysis possible. The result is visualized with charts, histograms, keyword clouds and much more.

Of course you can filter on every single detail of your links, it doesn’t get more flexible than that.

Link Audit & Penalty Recovery

Keep your backlinks clean and your domain healthy and penalty free.

Thousands of websites are penalized by Google every day and lose money and traffic due to unnatural and toxic links in their backlink profile.

You can quickly perform a backlink audit with Link Detox®. Analyze your site’s link risk and rate your inbound links with the unique technology for link risk scoring: DTOXRISK® based on the link risk rules we developed and years of signals from quality raters and users.

With Domain DTOXRISK® we also estimate the probable risk for your domain receiving a Google Penalty or triggering a Google Penguin Filter.  

LinkResearchTools will automatically create your disavow file. All you need to do is to upload it to your Google Search Console account. With Link Detox Boost you can even speed up your recovery after a Google penalty and restore your lost Google rankings much quicker.

Backlink Monitoring

Monitor your backlinks and get notified by e-mail when you or your competitors get new links. Check the quality and validity of your new links by looking at accurate SEO metrics.

Create recurring reports and set your own alerts for your sites when new links appear – no more cached statistics in your reports.

The Link Alerts (LA) tool monitors new backlinks to your domain and alerts you about new links to your site.

With the Link Check Tool (LCT) you can check big lists of links and their SEO metrics automatically. You can get alerts as soon as aspects like anchor text, link-status (e.g. Follow to Nofollow) changed, the link was deleted or “blocked per robots.txt”. If it’s important for your to keep an eye on your strongest and most valuable links, then you need the Link Check Tool (LCT).

Everyone knows the fact, it's critical to have a high-quality backlink profile.
