How LJT works
The Link Juice Thief is a backlink building tool that exploits a little-known SEO technique that looks at the outgoing links of your competitors and then looks for common places that they are linking to. If you can find these link targets and get a link there, this means that competitors are indirectly linking to you.
You can begin by entering your competitor’s URLs into the Link Juice Thief (LJT) tool, or you can use the ‘Find Competing Pages’ feature. The more domains you enter, the more likely you are to find to find common link targets. You can enter up to 50 domains.
The Link Juice Thief will show you a list of sites that your competitors link to. The most interesting column is the commonality one. For example, 13 competitors link to bbc.co.uk – if you could get a link on this website it would mean that 13 of these competitors are indirectly linking to you.
The Link Juice Thief can give you a lot of ideas about acquiring links. Quite often you might find domains that you would never have thought of. In the results grid of the LJT, you can click any of the ‘points’ to launch a QBL, which will show you more information about that link relationship.
The Link Juice Thief helps you find common links of up to 50 predefined competitors. This feature provides a different way of searching for link sources by comparing the outgoing links of your competitors.
The tool finds places where your competitors commonly link to. If you can get a link on one of those websites, you can get your competitor to indirectly link to you.
The Link Juice Thief tool helps you get backlinks from high authority pages in your niche.
The histogram shows the common backlinks of your competition and groups them according to the strength of the commonality and the chosen metrics. You can switch between the tabs to view other metrics.
Quickly spot commonality with the results matrix
The Link Juice Thief has a similar results matrix to the Common Backlinks Tool. Here you can click on any of the points in the matrix to launch a QBL and find out more about your potential link sources. In many cases, you will find that the places linked to are authoritative sites relating to the niche.
It can be difficult or easy to get a link on such authorities, we’ve seen it all. But if you can make it happen, you will reap the benefits in your rankings. The above example shows UK car insurance sites with seven domains linking to bbc.co.uk, for any reputable UK car insurance company it should be possible to get a link here.
