Do you want to have an SEO strategy to rank your website to the top of the search engines?

Well, You have 3 options to improve your site’s SEO: quality of your content, on-page SEO, and Off-page SEO (increase the number of backlinks).

In this article, I am going to discuss the latter.

It would be best if you always had a game plan, whether you’re guest posting or stealing backlinks.

However, if you create more content, you’re increasing your chances of receiving incoming links naturally. On the flip side, there is no guarantee that this will generate your desired results.

Nowadays, it is next to impossible to build low-quality backlinks to your website to boost your website rankings. In this way, you’ll end up causing more harm to your SEO plans.

Now’s the time to implement a link-building strategy that you can easily follow and trust.

The best approach for link-building strategy depends on your website type and your SEO strategy.

So, let’s dig deeper to learn about the link-building tools that help marketing professionals to have excellent results for their search engine rankings.

Below, you’ll find a list of 8 awesome link-building tools that can impact your website’s rankings.

Ahrefs

Backlinks remain one of the important parts of Google’s algorithm.

So, if you do not have high-quality backlinks like your competitors have, they’re in better position to rank their sites on top of the search results.

Ahrefs is a link-building software designed for SEO and considered the world’s most extensive backlink index.

Ahrefs has a lot of features not required for the link building, such as:

  • Keyword research tool
  • Technical SEO site audits
  • Rank tracking
  • Content Explorer

Though Ahrefs has many advanced features, it’s really easy to use even for a non-technical person.

Link Intersect

This feature helps you to see which sites link to your competitor’s sites.

For example,

Here, the result shows that who’s linking to Moz and Ahrefs. You can see backlinks to all the sites.

This feature is beneficial because it shows your competitors’ backlinks, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll link to your site.

But it’s obvious that if someone links to 2 of your competitors, your chances of getting a backlink from that site increases.

Ubersuggest

Ubersuggest provides you access to backlink data for your competitors, so you may understand their link profile and target the same links. Here’s a way to do it.

Enter your competitor’s domain and search.

In the left sidebar, go to SEO analyzer and click on Backlinks.

Now check the overview.

These three parts are important to check a site’s ability to rank high in the search engines:

  1. Domain score: It is an overall strength of the website. It has a score from 1 to 100.
  2. Backlinks: It shows the number of incoming backlinks from other websites
  3. Referring domains: It is the number of unique domains linking to the website

Now click on the Backlinks.

This information will give you an insight into the health of the website; you’ll use this step actually to gain more backlinks.
