Simulate your future backlink profile

LinkResearchTools (LRT) allows you to see the impact a link will have on your backlink profile in the future.

Therefore we call our Link Simulation mode (or LORT in the classic app) also the Time Machine for Links. Simulating the risk a potential link will have on your backlink profile is possible, because LRT's DTOXRISK metric analyzes links as connections from Source to Target, and doesn't just look at the source page like other tools or metrics.

It is also possible to do

Build a habit to finding Link Gaps and building powerful and healthy links.

Of course if you have a link gap, and those links are highly toxic, then it's better to not build them - they are hurting your competitors probably. So don't blindly fill the link gap - make sure you only build low risk links.

Watch out

Take a Closer Look at Potential Links
