How to Quickly Find Webmaster Contact Information with LinkResearchTools + Pitchbox

After months of hard work with our friends at Pitchbox, we’re proud to present the integration between Pitchbox and LinkResearchTools for Link Removal and Link Building Outreach.

Your Outreach Solution for Link Building and Bad Link Removal is LIVE

LinkResearchTools + Pitchbox

So you found really risky links you want to remove. Now what?

If your site has been manually or algorithmically penalized, Google expects you to contact the sources of those bad links to remove them. It can take a long time just to find the site’s contact information. Then Google wants to see proof of your outreach included in your disavow file.

What a nightmare.

SEOs have been asking us to build the perfect outreach solution. We certainly toyed with the idea. After all, our Contact Finder tool has been part of the answer for years.

But even when you find the site's contact information, you need a sane way to contact the webmasters, easily request the removal of the link, and accurately track the progress.

You don't have time for that.

That's why we integrated Pitchbox into LinkResearchTools®


The Perfect Outreach Solution Is Here

Right from LinkResearchTools and Link Detox®, you can use Pitchbox to easily contact webmasters or their colleagues for either link removal or to pitch your product, publication, or website to link to.

LRT provides all the link intelligence and market-leading technology with Link Detox, Link Detox Genesis (our data-driven, organic algorithm), and the invaluable Link Detox Boost® technology to speed up recovery.

Now you can contact webmasters directly from Backlink Profiler (BLP) with a single click.

And all the other tools – like Missing Links Tool (MLT) – will integrate Pitchbox very soon.

It's Easy to Set Up Campaigns!

  • Email personalization for highly personalized messages – scripted logic included
  • A contact finder that all Pitchbox competitors would love to have
  • Many years of outreach legwork experience in one product
  • Awesome charts and accurate reporting you and your boss will love!
  • Templates available in the LRT Certified community

LinkResearchTools and Pitchbox are the Yin and Yang of Link Building and Bad Link Removal.

They're an online marketer's dream in a post-Penguin world.

Problem – Solution – Proof

Outreach has a few problems:

  1. How do you reach the right person?
  2. How do you sensibly stay in contact without annoying or spamming them?
  3. How do you coordinate your messages?

Don't worry. We figured them out.

In LRT you will have custom outreach campaign drafting options for each of your clients.

Goodbye, Excel!

Proven Effectiveness

We made sure it worked by performing outreaches to journalists and spam link network operators. We got spammy links removed and authoritative links built. We did it all.

That's what 5 years of LRT power combined with 5 years of outreach campaigning can do for you.
