The top backlink checkers 2013 Listed below are the top backlink checkers of 2013: 1. Ahrefs – at the time of this writing, Ahrefs has the best and freshest database. However, the number of reported backlinks is grossly inflated for 80% of the websites that we have checked. As an illustration, the 1st site that we have checked had 12,000 reported backlinks, after verifying them (removing the dead links) the number shrank down to 1,100. What we liked about Ahrefs – the best database at the time of the test. What we didn’t like about Ahrefs – inflated numbers for many of the tested sites, pricey monthly subscription model. 2. SeoMoz – in the test that we ran, Seomoz reported fewer backlinks for about 69% of the sites that we have checked. The number of dead links expressed as percentage of the reported was smaller compared to Ahrefs, but we ended up with fewer verified links when compared to Ahrefs as well. What we liked about SEOmoz – good database, fantastic tools. What we didn’t like about SEOmoz – pricey monthly subscription model. 3. SEO Spyglass – spiders and verifies the links by removing the dead ones. SEO Spyglass spiders several search engines and link sources, verifies them (removes the dead ones) and breaks down the results according to a number of important factors. What we liked about SEO Spyglass is that does not count in dead links; what we did not like about SEO Spyglass was the smaller number of links found and the slow speed. 4. Quick Spy – part of Backlink Falcon, Quick Spy is the new kid on the block, which we put to the test. How does it work – it allows you to import data from Seomoz via their free API and from Ahrefs via their paid API (optional). In addition, it spiders various search engines and other link sources, verifies the links on the spot, and breaks them down according to a number of important factors. What we liked about Quick Spy – once off payment, flexible, fast. What we didn’t like about Quick Spy –cannot be purchased separately.
