The advantages of the quick backlink profilerWhat Can The Quick Backlinks Tool (QBL) Help You Achieve?

The Quick Backlinks Tool gives you a fast overview of the backlink profile of a page or domain and helps you make fast decisions, thus saving you a lot of time in your SEO work.

QBL reverses the philosophy of LinkResearchTools which has always been focused on accuracy and comprehensiveness for all data reported.

The QBL uses cached data rather than live data, like most other SEO tools, which means that it gives results very quickly. This means you get to see backlink data that could be a couple days old. But not to worry; we still got the freshest and most up to date results out there compared to our competitors. This is good enough for every “quick-glance”.


If you want to use a tool that crawls live data you can use the Backlink Profiler (BLP). The advantage of the speed of QBL is useful in many situations.

Quick summary of your backlinks
You can use the QBL tool as a quick backlink checker. It allows you to create a quick list of your backlinks with detailed information on the most important SEO metrics for each link.

Quick Backlinks Tool Features

Filters for restricting link sources

With the Quick Backlinks Tool you can restrict the link sources to specific results, e.g. just show .edu or .gov domains.

How can restricting sources help you?
If you need to a special analysis of specific backlinks you can do this by restricting the sources.

Let’s say that you want to know more about the backlinks of your competitors in the UK market. With QBL, you can change settings so that you see only TLD “.co.uk”. You can then try to go after similar links yourself.

Group by Target URLs (QBL)

‘Group by Target URLs’ is a different way of looking at your backlinks. You can easily see who is linking to specific sections and pages.

What is ‘Group by Target URLs’?

Group by Target URLs is a way of displaying the backlink data grouped by target URLs. For example, you would be able to see the links going to the homepage of yourdomain.com separately from the backlinks going to subsections such as yourdomain.com/category-1 or even single pages such as yourdomain.com/category-1/product-A.html.

Why do you need to see results grouped by Target URLs?
It’s always a good idea to look at results in different ways so you can spot anything unusual. Here are some examples:

  • You want to see who and why people are linking to a particular subpage on your domain rather than the homepage
  • You want to see what interest a particular product has on your domain
  • You want to see what links your competitor is getting to a certain section of their domain

In-depth information for each backlink

The results table gives detailed information about all the backlinks found by the Quick Backlinks Tool.

Easy to interpret anchor text cloud

You can see from the anchor text cloud if the anchor text looks overdone or if it looks natural. Usually, you would expect to see the brand keywords here and not your main money keyword.

Save time and ease your SEO work

Use the Quick Backlinks tool to find the strongest backlinks of your domain or your competitor’s domain in less than one minute.

Does it make sense to use QBL additional to BLP to analyze backlinks of my projects?

 

The QBL gives historical data only while the Backlink Profiler (BLP) verifies all the backlinks by re-crawling them for you. It is, therefore, better to rely on the results of the BLP, which will show the current status of your Backlink Profile (BLP).

Why is Google PageRank not included in the QBL?

 

Google PR is not reliable anymore, so we recommend using our Power and Trust metrics.

We developed a browser extension that includes the powerful LRT Power*Trust metric. This is a great replacement for the Google Toolbar PageRank.

In QBL, can I filter so that only one link per domain shows in the table?

 

Yes, go to advanced settings when you start the report and choose the site-wide links filter. You have to check the box and choose the option “Skip site-wide links (after one links found per domain).

Can we add a file of backlinks to the QBL link analysis tool?

 

In the QBL, it is not possible to add additional backlinks, but you can do this in the Backlink Profiler (BLP). The BLP also checks your backlinks and gives you a more accurate picture of your link profile.

In my opinion, LinkResearchTools stands alone as the best link research product on the market. After failure using various competitor products, we were able to clearly identify our linking issues, understand our competitors configurations, and implement changes which dramatically improved our internet presence within months.

The staff is very attentive by quickly responding to all of our emails and with the knowledge base to answer correctly. I wish we had learned about LinkResearchTools a long time ago. Thank you all – you’re the best!!
