Analyze Backlink Quality using important metrics

Use important backlink metrics to analyze each link for quality and relevance: URL Trust Flow, Citation Flow and Domain Trust Flow, the number of inbound/outbound links, Domain Primary Topic and Topical Trust Flow (all powered by Majestic).

WebCEO also provides you with the Alexa Traffic Rank, domain IP address, backlink text and the other backlink info. You can also weed out nofollow links and toxic links by using handy filters.

Build Only Safe Links, no toxic links

WebCEO takes care of your backlinks and detects toxic links by using its proprietary and customizable toxicity formula*. Some of these factors are the number of outbound links on a linking page, the number of backlinks from the same domain, site-wide links, backlinks from the same subnet, etc.

* You can always fine-tune the formula in the Competitor Backlink Spy settings.

Understand the Context of each competitor backlink

Use the Show backlink texts feature to see the context of each link at a glance, without visiting each backlink donor and trying to find where exactly the backlink is located on a donor page and what it looks like.

This will save your time and help you better understand what they would say in a link to you.

Competitor Backlink Spy Tool FAQ

What Are SEO Competitor Backlinks?

SEO competitor backlinks are the web pages that link to the sites of your organic competitors (websites competing for your targeted keywords on search engines).

It's definitely worth analyzing competitor backlinks in order to understand where your website stands in the competitive landscape. Competitor backlinks are also a great way to build and fine-tune your own link building strategy.

What Backlink Data Does WebCEO Use for the Competitor Backlink Spy Tool?

WebCEO has a partner agreement with Majestic, one of two major backlink data providers. It's not a simple API integration where, as with SEMRush, you are expected to purchase a separate Majestic subscription and enter your API key into the interface of your SEO software.

WebCEO has a full integration with Majestic in the form of unique backlink tools. WebCEO pays for big volumes of Majestic data in bulk, so you don't have to buy that extra subscription.

How to Find Competitor Backlinks for Great Backlink Opportunities?

  1. Navigate to the Competitor Backlink Spy Tool by WebCEO.
  2. Click Add competitors.
  3. In the Competitors list, select suggested sites or add URLs manually, not including www.
  4. In the report, you’ll see the strongest backlink opportunities: pages on external sites that link to several competitors of yours at the same time.
  5. Review the discovered backlinks by using important metrics (URL Trust Flow and Citation Flow, the number of inbound/outbound links, Alexa Traffic Rank, etc.)
  6. Reach out to requisite site owners to convince them to link to your site or barter links/services.
  7. Profit from increased traffic and higher Google index authority!
