Free Backlink checker tools are capable enough of spying on your competitors’ backlinks. We all know that link building is an important task to rank a website or a blog for a particular keyword. If we directly go to outrank our competitor, it takes hard efforts.
In case, when your competitor is a brand, it is unlikely to outrank it. Then, what could we do?
Free backlink checker tools come handy in this situation. By using these tools, you can find out the backlinks of your competitor and can make similar kind of backlinks that a competitor site used to rank a specific keyword.
Most of the marketers and SEO’s do not know about this thing. They don’t try to build links. According to their strategy, just add the pages in site and Google will automatically rank them. It happens, but very rarely when no one else is competing for the same keyword. The same thing happened with my friend.
–Here is the complete story (in short)–
Once we met, and he discussed the things related to his project. I just looked into the keyword planner for the search count of the keyword he was working on. The thing I discovered was shocking; there was no any sign of search count for that keyword. It was showing blank.
In some exceptional cases, if it is related to an authority website and content is well researched, in-depth and highly SEO-optimized; the site can rank without having any backlink. Though, it takes time and sweat to rank a website or blog for a keyword without building links.
With backlinks, you can rank faster in the search engines. You should first check for the search count and competitiveness of a keyword. If a keyword has high searches and low competitive, then it can be considered for working and building backlinks around it.
But, some people do just opposite of it. They blindly pick a keyword from any free keyword research tool and write an article around that keyword. Then after open a free online backlink checker tool to see the competitor backlinks and begin to build backlinks. It is not a right way of working on a keyword.
Suppose, if you are working on a highly competitive keyword, then it would take several months to outrank your competitor.
In my words, it would be your most weird stupidity in the life.
The right steps may be like as the following points:
- Search for a low competition + high searches keyword
- Write a high quality around the same keyword
- Go to any of the free backlink checker tools (given below) to create backlinks.

In my blogging journey so far, I found Ahrefs most recommended backlink checker tool. Many marketers use it to spy on competitors’ backlink. The main advantage of this site is to have high update rate. The site database gets updated frequently compared to other online backlink checker tools. This thing improves its reliability. It offers categorized information about any link. You may get to know about a specific link or a certain domain’s links through this free tool.
You got another free backlink checker in your pocket. It’s a fast backlink analyzer for any domain. The best thing I found in this tool is you can get an email alert that will inform you once in a day for the backlinks pointing towards the website; you are unfolding backlinks of. However, to use this feature, you must be a registered user on open link profiler.
Key Feature: you can look almost each backlink for a certain domain.
The Moz had developed this tool. You can see the inbound links pointing to your website. Moreover, the fresh built links can also be discovered through this tool. If a user wants to compare the link metrics to the other sites, simply add the sites in the “Compare Link Metrics” section.

5. Majestic Seo
Majestic SEO is a simple free backlink checker tool, but few limitations as you can see only ten backlinks of your website. To find out more backlinks, you have to subscribe for their premium subscription. This tool provides a different section for the lost backlinks; however, due to the limitation of 10 results, I found it less effective than the rest of the free backlinks checker tools.
Key Feature: The pictorial representation of anchor text metrics drew my attention.
