“I don’t want to miss the LinkResearchTools in my everyday SEO life. I especially like the Common Backlinks Tool that helped me to get some high quality backlinks for my projects, e.g. great PR6 links from university sites. The second highlight is the Backlinks and Anchortext Tool that I use to investigate my competitors’ link building and I already got some number one rankings for my clients.”
