Once you’ve determined the number of back links you currently have, you can find out where you need to go from here. Go back to Yahoo.com and repeat the above process for the top 5 or 10 sites for your desired keywords or keyword phrase. Now you’ll have a clearer picture of how many inbound links you need to rank at the top of Google. You may notice that some sites rank highly even though they have fewer inbound links than those below them. This is due to “high value links.” High value links are inbound links from sites with a high page rank on the search engine linking to a site with low page rank. High value links prove that quality can trump quantity in the link-building game. Focus on building more high value links for your site and watch your page rank skyrocket!
In order to rank #1 on major search engines such a Google, Yahoo! and Bing, a link builder needs to know the back link profiles of their competitors and industry allies. Having this kind of knowledge makes link building easier, more efficient and most all more effective.
The tools listed below will not only help you discover your competition’s backlink profiles but will also provide ways to obtain relevant back links yourself.
TOOL #1 – Backlink Watch – The Backlink Watch Tool a very simple way to check a website’s back link URL’s, anchor text and total OBL’s (outbound links) on the same page as that link.
TOOL #2 – Analyze Backlinks – Another gold mine for exploring a competitor’s back links. This one provides more valuable options that allow you to filter out same domain URL’s and to search for factors such as target keyword mentions surrounding the links.
TOOL #3 – Yahoo Site Explorer – Not really a linking tool, but you could quickly check a site’s inlink count and it’s top 10-1000 back links. Although this tool isn’t much more better than the previous 2, it does show the title of the linking pages and allows you to track you own websites if signed in and verified ownership of site.
TOOL #4 – Google Search (link:yoursite.com) – No different than the one above except for the fact that the number of back links according to Google’s search engine is ALWAYS considerably lower than Yahoo!’s results. But the links that made it to Google’s results are assumingly affecting the search rankings.
TOOL #5 – Alexa Backlink Checker – You can see total domains linking to a website and which domains they are. This Alexa tool also provides other great website data.
