Backlinks are one, if not the most important SEO rankings factors with Google

Know when and what backlinks your competitors are building or earning.

“Backlinks,” meaning sites that link to your site are for most search engines, the supreme SEO ranking factor. So is getting more organic traffic.

My favourite tool to spy on my competitors’ backlinks is called Monitor Backlinks. It allows you to add your four most important competitors. From then on, you get a weekly report containing all the new links they have earned. Inside the tool, you get more insights about these links and can sort them by their value and other SEO metrics. A useful feature is that all the links my own website already has are highlighted in green.

This will help you replicate their best backlinks and better understand what methods they are using to promote their website. If they are getting links through guest blogging, try to become a guest author on the same websites.

Using this technique I can easily determine new link-building opportunities. With Monitor Backlinks, I can keep track of all the backlinks my website is earning. Each time my link building campaigns are successful, I can see all the new backlinks I’m getting in my dashboard.
