Backlinks are amongst the most important parts of SEO for getting high ranks on search engine that help to get more traffic. After shutting down Yahoo explorer it’s hard to find free places. So I want to share the 3 best free places to find links. Check the list below:
1. Google Webmaster Tool
It’s one of important free products of Google for web developers with lots of features like errors checker, sitemap submitter and others that help to optimize you site for search engine. They provide option links to your site which show all backlinks with their domain and reference link, but we can’t check no-follow or page rank.
This is one of free places from where we can check backlinks with domain authority, pagerank and also choose to follow or not follow. It might not show all links but if you are focusing on basic backlink optimization like page rank, etc then it’s better to use it.
Alexa provides top lists of websites that calculate how many visitors and has option of link info. They don’t update fast and have less links but still it’s a free way to find back links.
There are a few others like Majesticseo or Seomoz but we have to pay or buy the premium version. It’s better to use above free tools that could help in a similar way.
