Checking Built Links in a Flash
Update: I don’t use any of the tools mentioned below anymore. I found that SEO Book Reciprocal Checker really does the job well.
Found a cool way to check if the links you’ve built are still live.
Checking live links has always been a sore part of my SEO job since you have to do it manually. Looking on an excel file containing 500 to 1,000 links, it’s not really very exciting to start the crude task.
I used to copy paste the url to the browser, patiently wait for the site to load, and check if my links are still live.
But even though I have been doing this manual act for more than two years now.. (Yes, it was a bit dumb not to look for a solution right away… or maybe a year earlier.)
I found a neat site that will just automate the process.. for all those who’ve been using this since they knew SEO, well that’s really good news. But for those, (like me) who still do the checking of links in a manual process, here’s the site you should consider using.
It’s the Reciprocal Link Checker.
Yep, I was done in a flash. Vebtools has a lot of pretty cool seo tools for free. Let’s make the most out of it, while it’s still is.
There is another tool I found, it’s also free, but you have to download the file and run the program on your computer. It’s called Link Verify. I have downloaded it yes, but making it work, I’m not pretty sure how.
I think it’s a cool tool, I just have to find a way to make it work. If you use this tool maybe drop a line in the comment section and tell me how to figure this tool out. Thanks in advance!
