So, like me, you’re pissed and scared that people will profile your backlink campaign and try to reverse-engy that shit. Well, boys, the game has changed yet again. With the Yahoo Site Explorer shutdown, this leaves only 3 decent ways to analyze a backlink campaign for the noob SEO. Sure, they’ll try OpenSiteExplorer, then they may try and become a Mr. Smarty Pants and try Majestic SEO’s tool, or maybe some dumbass grandson SEO advised them to use Google’s “link:” search command. Maybe they’ll even try shitty Bing Webmaster Tools. Everyone knows BingHoo sucks. It’s a scientific fact.
Well, my friends, I am happy to report that we’ve caught a break. It’s now hard as hell to reverse-engy a HTTPS backlink campaign with the death of Yahoo! Site Explorer. Open Site Explorer only allows HTTP links and you have to PAY to get to see Majestic’s data so that leaves shitty and totally non-useful “link:” data as the only method to get any data on a link campaign.
Of course, you could just quote out a domain name in a search query and have fun analyzing every reference to that domain then visit the link, draw a conclusion, then move on to the next result but with a domain with > 500 links/references, you can bet that your competition will give up quickly.
However, if reverse-engy’ing a campaign is something that you do to get traction, then here are some cool backlink tools you might want to know about. And, no, there are no fucking affiliate links in here any where. SEOBULLSHIT doesn’t pull that shit. Our bullshit is for the sake of bullshit, not affiliate bullshit. It’s just for your reference.
