on Tuesday, 19 November 2013
You as a link builder, webmaster or search engine optimizer want the best links possible for your website and I want you to find them. That’s why I put together this list of some of the best link building resources and tools that are out there, to get you the best results you can possibly muster. Now, technically speaking, any tool for SEO can be reimagined for link building, but a long list of complicated and confusing tools is not what you want, or what you need! So here you are with the ultimate 5 link building resources and tools.

These tools can help take you all the way through the process of gathering links, from understanding what link building is, to making your whole process as efficient as possible. Rest assured that no matter where in the process of link gathering you are, there is a tool here to help you.

1. Mail Tester

If you need a website’s e-mail address and doesn’t seem to be working, you might have to try to use much iteration of standard e-mail addresses before you get the webmaster. Things like or are common e-mail addresses on a domain. With Mail Tester you can see if the e-mail is valid before trying all different combinations – which will save some time and effort in the end. It does take a minute to ping the server, so try to be patient while it works its magic.


If you’re struggling to find a webmaster’s email address on the web site, check out the Whois information. When someone registers a domain, they are required to provide certain information which often becomes public knowledge.  This is not available for every website and can be outdated, but hey, it’s a start!

3. Spy on Web

Find Networks of sites with the same IP address.  You may or may not know that a network of sites on the same IP is a sitting duck for a potential Google penalty; if one site gets a penalty the others may soon follow.  Protect yourself and avoid these sites if you can! To help you do just that, simply enter the website url, IP address, Google ad sense or Google analytics code and find out what resources belong to the same owner. Free of charge!

4. Link Detective

If you are attempting to check out some competitor back links or performing an analysis to find more opportunities on your own site, you’ll want to be able to classify what you’re looking at fairly quickly. Link Detective allows you to sign up for a free account and check out what the back links to a site physically look like. You can see a nice pie chart break out of things like Dead links (which you can work to reclaim), Banner Ads, In Text, and Sidebar links as well as a list of each of them.

5. Check My Links

If you’re trying to analyze a website for broken links, look for no easier a tool than Check My Links. It is a simple Chrome plug-in that activates with one click of a button and will check every link on the page for things such as 404, 301 and 302 issues.  They do not check plug-in activated links (such as in text advertisements), Ad sense links and No follow links so you may need an additional tool or manually test these links if you encounter them.
