Scraped data

Our smart backlink finder software will return the following details:

  • URL checked
  • Found (true / false) - this indicates if a link is present or absent on the page
  • Links to - where does this link point to
  • Anchor text - what’s the anchor tag

Why use the backlink detector?

This SEO backlink search tool scans one or multiple websites for the presence of a certain URL. This may be useful in a number of scenarios, such as carrying out a QA for link builders who were assigned to publish your URL on 100+ websites.

Our SEO backlink checker makes sure that the links exist, work, and direct the user to the intended destination URL.

The SEO backlink finder tool saves a good deal of effort by automating a rather time-intensive task of checking multiple websites manually. It’s especially useful when there are 50-100 websites that require checking – a disproportionately large time investment for something as routine. Additionally, the backlinks analyzer gives you a way to periodically check if the URL is still present and hasn’t been deleted.
