Backlink Checker

Own an SEO or Affiliate Marketing blog? - I'm looking to partner up with some SEO/IM influencers and give away my tools as lead magnets on their websites. Yes thats right, you can give this tool away for free. Learn more.

What is Backlink Checker?

Backlink Checker is a 100% free desktop tool the allows website owners or SEO's to check a websites backlink profile. It is powered through the MOZ API (which is free to use). You simply enter the web properties (domains / webpages) you want to see the backlinks for and the tool will fire off requests to the MOZ API fetching all the known websites / webpages linking to those web properties.

How does this free tool work?

This tool is powered by the MOZ backlink crawler. Which current has around 190 Billion URLs, 317 Million Domains and 2 Trillion Links in its index. When you click start in the background the tool fires off requests to the MOZ API which returns all the links for your entered web properties. Web properties are just webpages and domains. Once we get a response back from the MOZ API we display the results in the results grid. There are a few options that we'll explain below.

Tool options

  • Fetch MOZ DA and PA - With this setting the tool will also query the moz api for the backlink's domain authority (DA) and page authority (PA) so you can assess how much of an impact its having on ranking the target web property (webpage or website).
  • Fetch NoFollow links - By default this tool will fetch only dofollow links, however if this option is selected it will return all links regardless of their nofollow / dofollow link attributes
  • Fetch links for entire domain - By detault if you were to enter this tool would only return links pointing to the root domain ( however if you select this option it will return all links pointing to the domain regardless of their target URL. For example links pointing to would be returned as well as any links pointing to

Why should I use this free backlink tool?

Links are still the core of Google's off page ranking algorithm. After on page SEO, links should be the next variable you focus on. Seeing who is linking to you and who is linking to your competitors can really give you the edge over your competition. If you can see where your competitors are obtaining their links you can replicate this and outrank them.
