Link Alerts helps you monitor backlinks that your site acquires over time. It helps you to create a link history so that you can monitor your link growth.

Here are the three main use cases of Link Alerts (LA):

  1. Negative SEO Prevention
  2. Competitive Backlink Analysis
  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.

Negative SEO Prevention

Your business relies on traffic from your website. Nowadays, all kinds of bad linking practices can cause troubles and a loss in traffic. There are even companies engaging in “Negative SEO” attacks against websites like yours.

But, you don’t have enough time and staff to track all those links. With Link Alerts, we help you monitor your website and let you know when the problem arises.

Link Alerts automatically scans the web for all new links to your website.

We also mark the really bad links that could be part of a negative SEO attack. You can easily export those bad links for future upload to Google to ignore (Disavow them) or send them to your SEO team for a review in Link Detox®.

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!

Automated Tracking

You need help in

  • Tracking your own domain’s links
  • Tracking competitor links
  • Tracking links to detect negative SEO

Link Alerts is proven and stable technology since 2010.

Link Alerts uses the 25 link data sources (a unique feature of LRT) to crawl the web for fresh links a domain gets.

For each new link, we crawl important SEO Metrics like our LRT Power*Trust and other “common” metrics. We also accurately check the link and anchor text for you; no more chasing phantoms.

How Easy is it really?

Just monitor your inbox. You will get a notification mail for new links and can jump to the details with one click.

Depending on the quality and power of that link, you can:

  • Contact the website owner directly
  • Add the link to your favorites – for later follow up
  • Perform deeper backlink research into the linking site
  • Export the links you earned in a specific time span

Quick overview display of results

The Link Alerts histograms show all the usual metrics as you would expect. You can filter Follow links, No Follow 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.

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.

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.
