      Thank you! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server. Thank you for your support as we turn 20 years old.  

Anyone Know Of A Good Free Backlink Checker ?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Appears I have been hit by the latest Google "Fred" update.


I need to check on any bad backlinks. Anyone know of a reputable, ideally free, bit of software that I can use?

I'd use webmaster tools and I'd subscribe to ahrefs on a monthly plan. Immediately after you get access unsubscribe. You will have access for the one month only. That is more than enough time for reviewing existing problematic links.


Then unsubscribe. Otherwise they will continue to bill you month after month.

I tried it quickly. Signed up but with a sign up most data is still blocked. To get value it would appear it also requires a monthly fee.


I'm not aware of a strong free bl checker. Currently I see ahrefs as the highest volume reporter of bl, but they all report somewhat different results.
