How You Benefit from the Link Check Tool (LCT)

Checking endless lists of links manually is a thing of the past!

The Link Check Tool (LCT) checks a variety of links to their validity and provides you with all the desired metrics from the rich set of the 97 available metrics of SEO Research Tools link for each respective source URL.

Link monitoring is important if you trade links, exchange links or buy advertising. If you know for example that Link A goes to Link B you can run the LCT in the exact match mode. In this case, you would enter your Source URLs and your Target URLs so that the first Source URL corresponds to the first Target URL and so on.

If you don’t know exactly which Target URLs your Source URLs are linking to, you can use the fuzzy match mode. By using the fuzzy match mode, you can find out where the target link is and then see the results, enriched with our metrics.

You can use the recurring reports feature for your Link Check Tool (LCT) reports as well. This way, you can automate your entire link check process. Right after your report is completed, you’ll receive a summary of your possible broken links via email.
