If you are a search engine optimizer or SEO (a popular acronym), then you probably know about the importance of tracking the links which you have created and keeping a note of the anchor texts used while linking. If you don’t pay attention to these small details, then you cannot expect long term results since SEO is not a game to play with closed eyes.
Now that I have intrigued you about this topic, I would like to share a tool with you guys, which will help you in keeping track of your links and making active backlinks on sites that Google considers being good and indexes them.
Let’s face it guys, even though you get a link from a site with great metrics, if your backlink isn’t indexed, then it WON’T be counted as a backlink in the eyes of Google and won’t help evaluate your rankings on Google. The tool which I was referring to is known as the Backlink Tracker. This Backlink Tracker tool helps you keep track of the links which you have made by showing you the link status, whether it is online and whether Google indexes it.
How to use the Backlink Tracker tool?
Using this Backlink Tracker tool is easy, follow the steps below:
- In the first field, enter your website URL for which you are making (or made) backlinks.
- In the second field, you can enter the URLs where you have created the backlinks. You are allowed to input multiple URLs, but please make sure to add one URL per line. (It’s always a good idea to keep the URLs where you made the links in the excel sheet for further analysis. If you haven’t held such sheets, then you may be able to retrieve those URLs by looking at the history of your browser.)
- Select the search engine where you are looking to rank. It will be Google.com for most of us unless you are trying to rank locally and would be needing to target local Google TLDs.
- Fill in the simple captcha. It is in place to keep bots and scripts from crashing our servers with too many requests.
- Click on the “Track Now” button for the tool to show the results.
Once the Backlink Tracker tool analyzes your links (which should take a couple of minutes if you have many URLs to investigate), it shows the live data and indexation data for all the URLs you have submitted. You can make a note of the links which weren’t indexed and try them again later.
How to get those backlinks indexed?
Unless you have been getting links from low-value websites and websites with no-follow tag, they will be noticed and indexed by Google, thereby giving your site the authority it deserves. You can speed up the process by using various premium tools like Instant Link Indexer, One Hour Indexing, or our in house pinging tool.
