Quick Video Tutorial For Link Alerts



Link Alerts Features

Use all the backlink sources you have

Setting a Link Alert is very easy, you enter your domain name and select which backlink sources are available. You can choose: Google Analytics Referrers, StatCounter Referrers, Sistrix Backlinks and our Other Backlinks re-crawled from 24 different backlink sources.

Set Link Alert

E-mail notifications

When we find new links, you get an e-mail notification. The email will list the first three links, with a link to go directly to your account and look at the results table in more detail.

Quick overview display of results

The Link Alerts histograms show all the usual metrics as you would expect. You can filter Follow links, NoFollow Links, Mentions, etc. For example, if this is your site, you may wish to adjust the filter to look at only the [LinkNotFound] results. In this case, the links were not found, and you may wish to explore further and try and reinstate them. Similarly, you can use Link Alerts for finding brand mentions that you may wish to get changed to links.

Link Alerts Power Trust

Get all the detailed data about your new links

The Link Alerts Results Table shows all the data of the new links, including the date when we found the link. The table can be fully manipulated with filters to show the data that is of most interest.

Link Alerts with Disavowing Feature

You should be careful if you have disavowed links in the past. When your links are disavowed, Google doesn’t take them into account anymore when calculating your website’s ranking position. You also should constantly check your disavow file. Sometimes domains were disavowed years ago but should not be disavowed today. Or perhaps one of your previous agencies didn’t do a good job and disavowed good healthy links and domains.

LinkResearchTools provides a great solution for this problem: the Link Alerts with the disavowing feature. There is a premade Filter Slice called ‘Disavowed and Ignored Links’.

Link Alerts Disavow Filter Slices

In Link Alerts, you can see the disavowed links

Now you can look through the links and decide if any of them should need to be undisavowed. If you find disavowed links that are good, you should undisavow them. You can mark them as good with a ‘thumbs up’ in the rating column. You can also add the links to your favourites so that you can investigate further later.

Do remember that the Disavow File Audit mode of Link Detox is an excellent way to check the quality of links that you have already disavowed.

Power use of Link Alerts during Manual Google Penalty Removal

In the case of a Google Manual Action, you will need to run a Link Detox report and produce a disavow file. After uploading your disavow file, you need to write a reconsideration request for Google, asking for them to remove your Manual Action.

There is usually a period of a few weeks before the Google spam team replies. It is likely that you could pick up some bad links during this Google disavow process which could ruin all your good work. By setting Link Alerts, you will be notified about any new links and will be able to deal with them accordingly.

You could mention in the reconsideration request that you will visit Google Search Console (Google Webmaster Tools) and Google Analytics on a daily basis and adjust your disavow file, if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions About Link Alerts

In Link Alerts, do you need to run an initial report to get a baseline, so you can identify new ones after that?

Yes, to receive regular messages from Link Alerts you will have to set it up once. You will get notifications as soon as the domain has received new backlinks. Initially, you may see a lot of older/weaker links in the Alerts as we find them. The longer it runs, the more helpful the Link Alerts become.

Is disavowing fresh spam links found by Link Alerts enough to keep my link profile clean?


It is the first step to finding the new bad backlinks, but to be 100% sure you could also start a Link Detox on these backlinks to see if they have high Link Audit Priority.

My SEO agency offers a bad link removal service, how often should I use Link Alerts to keep a link profile clean?


This depends on the niche or industry, if you are in a risky niche, you might need to run Link Detox weekly, but monthly should be fine. You can set up Link Alerts to notify you of any new links found. Within the Link Alerts report, you can rate these good or bad ready for your next scheduled Link Detox.

Somebody is attacking my site with Negative SEO. The Penguin Google Algorithm is ruining our rankings, what can I do?


Use Link Detox to find and disavow any links you do not want. Set up Link Alerts for your domain and deal with any new links as soon as you see them.


Won’t Google Search Console tell me all about any new links?


Although there are many benefits to using the Google Search Console, it does not show you a complete picture of your backlinks. Google Search Console does not send alerts either.

Is Link Alerts the only backlink monitoring solution I need?


Link Alerts is for monitoring your new links as they are acquired. If you want to know how to manage your backlinks that you already have, you can use the Link Check Tool (LCT).
