Backlink Checker
Any recomendations?

 11:02 pm on May 11, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'm looking for a backlink checker (one of those bots that spiders people's sites who agreed to exchange links with you to make sure they didn't remove or modify them and flags the sites that did).

Anyone have any experince with these? Any recomendations?

Visit [hotscripts.com...] and you'll find a few of these scripts for PHP.

None works yet but I think some company will notice that soon and develop a good tool for that.
I tried 4-5 and none does the job good and fast.
If I'm wrong please post.

None of them work well, especially if your link is moved to a subpage or laterally from where you expect (and this happens all the time.)

Best bet is to build your own. That's what I had to do.

same here we built our own. It crawls all links once a week once a week.

I've been toying around with SEOElite the product is pretty good but the support and customer service for it is the best I've ever had. All emails are answered promptly and they will even include your ideas in future releases of the program.

We have been using seoelite and find it very good.

ARELIS from Axandra will do the stuff for you - definitively worth the money

I second ARELIS...incredible tool if you know how to use it. Their other software, IBP 8, is amazing as well. Both apps save you "days" worth of time.

I use ARELIS have some 700 sites in a project database and can't find the way to check selected sites to find out they are linking to me or not,

Is there anyway to do that?

Runing the linkchecker on 700 sites is time consuming and often the tool doesn't recognize links on sites really linking to you.

Perhaps you can help me about that.

At the bottom of the main screen, there are 4 tabs. The far right tab says Check Links or you can click on F4.

On this tabbed screen is a button that says Check All Links. Click that and Arelis will verify all of the links that are linking back to you, as long as they have been entered into the Edit Site (F2) screen.

Arelis is pretty fast and you can have up to 16 connections going at once.

Is that what you were asking about?

No I'm saying you can't check some links only. You MUST check all links which is undesirable for explained reasons.
