Monitor Backlinks with Link Alerts

3 Simple SEO tips to monitor your backlinks using Link Alerts

Link Alerts SEO Tips

  1. Competitive Backlink Analysis
  2. Negative SEO Prevention
  3. Automated Tracking

Link Alerts (LA) monitors your backlinks and notifies you automatically via email about new links. Our unique SEO metrics help you evaluate the quality of new links at a glance.

Competitive Backlink Analysis

Your competitors are getting links like crazy! They run their own outreach campaigns on a scale 10x yours. However, you still want to outsmart them. Right? Now who has the time to do backlink checks every day and compare the differences?

We do 🙂
Link Alerts is like Google Alerts for links!

Do you want to analyze the new backlinks your competitors have?

Link Alerts is the answer to your problem.

Once setup, Link Alerts lets you know when and where your competitors earned new links. You can quickly decide if it’s worth following up and trying to get that (or a similar) link. By using our powerful metrics, like LRT Power*Trust, you can easily see which links are valuable and contact the site owner immediately.

And you know what’s best – if you give a blogger a call a couple HOURS after he blogged about your competitor, he’s still a “HOT” lead. Congratulate him on the great post and try to make clear why YOUR site should be linked there also. This works!

    I think Cognitive SEO does a pretty good job of this and offers a lot more. Why would I purchase this over Cognitive SEO?
