Alternatives to add backlinks

If you don’t want to add your domain using your Google Analytics account you can choose to select one of the 4 other alternatives:

1. Add quick link (manually add a link).

Add a manual link on Monitorbacklinks

With this option, you can manually add a backlink that you want to monitor. Here are some scenarios where this can be very useful:

  • You have bought a link or a banner that expires in 3 months. You can monitor the link, and know if it’s removed before it should be.
  • If your website received a Google penalty and you are trying to clean your backlinks profile. After you have sent email requests to webmasters for links to be removed, Monitor Backlinks will check your links status, and alert you when removed.
  • An important website has placed a link to your website, and you want to check if they will keep it live.

2. Backlinks checker

The Advanced Backlinks Checker generates a list with your website’s backlinks, anchor text reports and website statistics.

You can import these links to your domain profile by clicking the button “Monitor all Backlinks”.
