Are you thinking to use link building tools for your blogs and websites but confused which you should choose?

There are hundreds of link building tools are available in the market which claims itself No#1, but you can’t try all. That’s why I asked around 50 industry experts about their link building campaigns. Which all tools they use and how these tools helped them to reach the top.



I asked a one-liner question to each expert-
If you could use only 3 SEO tools for your link building campaigns which 3 tools would you choose

I simply wanted to know the tools that helped them to reach the top so that a newbie like me and many can take help of those tools. I received a good number of responses. And so here are the responses of 31 Industry experts. I was really surprised to see the response of industry giants replying to a mail of newbie. I thank each one of you for your precocious time. Based upon the vote, I categorized the top 5 most used link building tools and here those are-

Favourite Link Building Tools, based upon the votes-

1. Ahrefs – 13 Votes
2. Google Products (Includes Webmaster, Search and Keyword Planner)- 12 Votes
3. BuzzStream- 10 Votes
4. Majestic Seo- 8 Votes
5. BuzzSumo and MOZ tied with -4 Votes

Apart from these top 5 link building tools, good responses have been received for the below also-

So read on the experts’ 3 favorite link building tools-

Note: Responses listed in the order they were received in

Neil Patel - Neil Patel

Ahrefs: I would use Ahrefs to see who links to my competition and which links I should be going after.

BuzzSumo: I would use Buzzsumo to help me determine what content to create that generates the most social traffic. As some of those visitors will end up linking back to your site.

Adobe Illustrator: And I would use Adobe Illustrator to create infographics. Infographics generate more backlinks than blog posts, or at least that is what we have seen at KISSmetrics.

Erik Emanuelli - Erik Emanuelli

Similar Web: Great tool to gather specific insights about any website, as search engines rankings, traffic, audience data, and social stats.

NetPeak Checker: Fantastic software to check different SEO details. Great to get an analysis of the main SEO parameters of specific pages or websites, plus competition analysis and comparison.

SerpBook Rank Tracker: A powerful rank tracker. Good to check different data for your website campaign, as for example keyword rankings.

Mike Wallagher - Start Blogging Online

Ahrefs: My number one "tool" for doing SEO is obviously Ahrefs. It helps me to dig into competitor backlinks and probably gather some low hanging fruits (links) for my project. This also helps me to determine the level of competition going on for a particular keyword/niche.

Gmail with YesWare: the Second tool in my list is Gmail with a combination of YesWare. This helps me to track my outgoing/received emails for link prospects. This can easily be replaced with a buzzstream, but I'm a bit old-school SEO so I prefer to Gmail.

Broken Link Finder: And the third tool would be brokenlinkbuilding.com. This is software that scrapes together a list (for a keyword) of pages that are either down or go to 404 error page. This helps me to find tons of broken link building prospects.

Kulwant Nagi - BloggingCage

I use following 3 link building tools-




Sue Anne Dunlevie- Successfull Blogging

Inbound Writer: I use Inbound Writer to come up with my keywords and the URL slug for my blog posts. They use predictive analytics and their service helps me create content that gets 2x-3x the amount of traffic I used to get.

Majestic SEO: It helps me see the backlinks and rankings of both my site and my competitors.

Alexa: I also use Alexa to keep track of my audience demographics and geography as well as my rankings.

Atish Ranjan - Atish Ranjan

I love to perform link building manually but to get help in the campaign I mostly use Majestic SEO, Ahrefs, and Google Webmasters primarily.

These tools help me understand which all sites are linking to me and also how they are linked and this helps me figure out which links are good and which ones are bad. On the basis of this, I can disavow the bad links to stay safe. I can also get to know how many dofollow links my site is having and how many nofollow. It helps me decide how much more quality backlinks either dofollow or nofollow are required in order to rank well.

I just shared the 3 tools above, but I use much more such as WebMeUp, Open Site Explorer.

If it comes to automation of link building which can be done for event blogging then I would Suggest GSA Search Engine Ranking.

Miguel Salcido - Organic SEO Consultant

Open Site Explorer: I would use Open Site Explorer to review competitor links and assess my site's link profile.

Excel or Google docs: I would use Excel or Google docs to manage and record new links.

Gmail: And I would use Gmail for my outreach.

It’s pretty simple. :-) But this is still the most effective way to build links.

Anil Agarwal - Blogger Passion

If I had to use only 3 SEO and link building tools, then here you go:

Moz: I personally use Moz tools as the tools used in Moz are not only made my SEO professionals but they are easy to use even for SEO beginners. They also give access to Open Site Explorer where you can actually figure out your competitor keywords and the number of backlinks so that you can outperform your competitors in search results.

Google Keyword Planner: No matter how many keyword research tools are available, according to me, nothing beats Keyword Planner by Google. You can easily figure out the best keyword ideas for your blog posts and you can also estimate the number of average monthly searches for your desired keywords. It's also free! Here are some of the best alternatives to Google AdWords for PPC.

SEO By Yoast: This is a must have plugin for every WordPress user. This plugin helps you optimize your blog posts properly for search engines. It will also help you find the right keyword density to increase your search results for any keyword. It's a free plugin btw! Sebastian Cowie- SC Digital

The 3 main SEO tools I use for my link building campaigns are as follows:

Scrapebox –for data collection, scraping, rank tracking

Ahrefs- for backlink data and competitor research

Buzzstream- for prospecting links

Jessica Knapp - Blogging Basics 101

Ahrefs- This is mostly for digging into competitors’ backlinks to get some low hanging links with direct email outreach. Here's what I usually do:
1) Type in my main keyword in Google.com
2) Scrape together top 10 results and add them to ahrefs backlink search.
3) See where they have got those links from.
4) Email to those webmasters saying that I've put together something similar and it would be nice if they could mention it on their page.

Buzzstream- This is mainly to keep my email outreach targeted and organized. In that way, I can follow-up if someone haven't answered to my initial email. I can also keep those contacts for future projects so I can email them later again and build a relationship of some sort.

Broken Link Building: This is for finding broken link building opportunities. It'll cost you some money, but you can easily type in your main keyword - for example, "blogging" and broken link building tool will give you some results for pages that are related to blogging but are no longer available (404 error, page down etc). Once I've found something, I'll get in touch with people who have linked to the site previously and tell them that the site is down and they could replace it with my OWN site.


My 3 link building tools are as follows:

Buzzstream- for prospecting links


and all the link data providers (in aggregate).

Then it’s good old Excel and Google.com usually for the rest.

Jason Acidre - Xight Interactive

I'd definitely pick these 3 link building tools:

Ahrefs- for backlink data and competitor research


SEOQuake/Mozbar- To Analyze competitors and their links pretty easily

George Stevens - NEB Stone

MajesticSEO – gives a good picture of your backlink profile as well as giving information on anchor text and quality of the backlinks (trust flow, citation flow)

MOZ – similar to MajesticSEO however with some differences - useful to compare metrics and also offers the ability to compare your site with other competitor sites in detail.

Google Webmaster Tools – the inbound links section can give some really good detail into who links to you and from what pages (it’s free as well).

Simon Penson - Zazzle Media

Everything we do is led by content and so while we still use the obvious tools we like to focus on ways to find great content that works. Often we will start with an audit of competitor activity and to do that we would often use the following tools. These help us understand what content gains traction and will earn shares and links:

Buzzsumo, SEMRush and Ahrefs Top Content.

Nirmala Santhakumar - My Magic Fundas

Below are my 3 preferred SEO tools for Link Building!

LongTailPro - I love this tool. I've integrated with my Moz free account to analyze the competitors and their links effortlessly. Not only to look the links, we can see their PD, DA, PR, Moz rank, juice passing external links etc with this awesome tool.

Google Webmaster Tools - Regular use of this valuable tool helps me to understand better about my links and keywords to focus.

Open Site Explorer - I use this vibrant tool to get insights about the links that points to a specific page.

Chris Gilchrist- Hit Reach

If I’ll have only three tools for link building, I would prefer to use the below three-

URL Profiler – For backlink audit

Ahrefs- To keep track of my link profile and make sure things look organic and healthy.

Buzzstream- for contact management, task management, and finding contact information

Kostas Chiotis - Iris Signals

MozBar: One of the tools I use on a regular basis is the convenient extension MozBar, which is both free and quite intuitive to use. Checking the Domain Authority of sites is a must for anyone who is working in the SEO industry so it's something I cannot work without.

SEOquake: SEOquake is another neat (and completely free) extension for Chrome and Firefox, which I use to view any site’s statistics while browsing. You can modify the different metrics to be displayed, such as Google and Bing indexed pages, external and internal links, keyword density, social media stats, and Alexa rank, etc. It saves me a ton of time for checking each of these individually.

Open Link Profiler: Perhaps the one I find the easiest and most straightforward to use is Open Link Profiler. For a free tool, it’s amazing how much you can get out of it. I use it mostly to scout specific backlinks leading to a site as it has some very handy filters and a number of options for tracking backlinks in real time (it’s updated daily) and the results go back for the past six months. I’ve used quite a few backlink profile checkers, but this one seems to work best for me.

Jane Sheeba- Best Hosting & Design

As to Link building and SEO tools, I use




Larry Frank- FlowingTechBlog

Buzzstream: BuzzStream is one of those tools I use for link building campaigns; it is hands down the best enterprise-class outreach management tool out there for me. It gives you an easy top down view and trusts me, it is extremely intuitive.

Majestic SEO: It's one of those tools I used in the early days of blogging; I was introduced to this tool by a friend. Majestic SEO is a software package, which is focused on providing information for link building, reputation management, competitive link analysis and website traffic analysis. In all this, competitive link analysis and for A standard link audit has been what I use this tool for. Believe me to the tool is a very nice one in terms of backlink exploration and building a reputable link building strategy.

Let me tell you currently Facebook is the second most traffic generator for TricksRoad.

Perhaps the biggest assets going with facebook is that you can you can post updates, links, and directly insert videos from YouTube onto your page. This makes getting your message out as simple as possible. As a result, when you build your network of ‘friends,’ they see your updates in real time and those who are interested can visit your link.

By this way, you’ll be able to build a great network as well as traffic. Below I’m going to discuss few very important tips to drive traffic to your blog/any other online business and doing a great promotion. I’m sure you must be knowing some of these tips, but if you’re missing any, please incorporate those, especially if you’re a newbie. Because being a newbie, you get less organic traffic and so social media can be very helpful in that case.


Also Read:Top 5 ways to drive traffic without social media and SEO

1. Create A Facebook fan page and complete profile:


This is the most important step in creating a brand. Just think you’re promoting a product for which you haven’t given any information, what your audience will think? The same applies here. First, create a facebook fan page and complete its profile like profile pic, cover pic, about, contact and all the required sections. This will ask the users to know about your business very well and closely.

Similarly complete your own profile too and add somewhere about your business like working at so and so or founder of so and so. This will help your facebook friends to know about your business also who are not following your fan page and who know after checking fan page they might follow also.

2. Make friends and invite to like fan page:


Use facebook search to find friends on facebook. You can send a friendship request to several people. But remember try to add only those people who can be your target audience. Suppose you’re running a blog on ‘wordpress themes’, so add the bloggers and webmasters who can be your potential user. Once they’ll accept your request, invite them to like your fan page. Not all will like your page but if only 10% will do, it’s sufficient for initial days. Once the user will start visiting your site and if they will find your site interesting they will follow you on facebook.

3. Become a fan of others :


Yes, if you want a good fan following, you’ve to follow others. Initially, nobody knows you and so start liking other’s fan page and in return, they’ll also like your page. If they’re not doing this (chances are there), you can approach once formally also but don’t force to do so. Once you’ve some good fan following you will get popularity very easily and traffic will flow to your site.

4. Link your other social account with Facebook profile & Page:


This is a very good practice and a smart way to increase engagement of your followers. Take some time to link your other profiles on your facebook account as well as on your facebook page. Especially add RSS link, twitter, and SlideShare account. This’ll help your followers/friends to get updated with your latest activities on other social sites.

5. Join Facebook Groups:


This is the best thing I ever saw on facebook. Groups are the great point to drive massive traffic to your blog and also to do promotion. But use these groups legally, don’t spam those else you’ll get banned. Join the group which falls in your niche and share your latest posts there. Also, manage some time in a week to share your old posts also. This’ll help you to take your business to the larger community. Currently, I’m added to 25 facebook groups including my own group Advertising Adda. You can join this group to share your posts and promote your business.

6. Be Active and get Engaged:


Being active doesn’t mean you’re online all the time. You should engage yourself with the others. You should like and comment on your friend’s status, posts, and shares. It’s not compulsory to do for all, but for few, you can do. And in this way indirectly you’ll build a good relationship with them. In return when you’ll share something, they too will do the same and you’ll see the result in terms of traffic, promotion and other benefits like sells also.

7. Promote your Facebook page link:


Yes, this is also important. Take your facebook fan page to the people. The couple of ways that I’m using is-
  • Add a facebook feed section on your blog sidebar. If any readers are reading your article and found it interesting and want to like you for future updates, they’ll like you directly from your site. I know most of you are using this.

  • On your facebook fan page, there is an option connect to twitter, connect your facebook account with the twitter account. Now once you’ll share something on your facebook fan page, it’ll get automatically shared on your twitter account too. And this way you’ll save time also.

8. Use Pinned Post, Highlight feature & Schedule Post:



These are the special features given by facebook. You can pin a post to the top of the page. I’m using this facility in my group where you can show one of your post on the top of the group. Use your one of the best post or the post you think should gather maximum attraction as a pinned post.

Also, you can highlight as many posts as you want. This gives visitors a special attraction and they tend to view that post. You should use these features but remember don’t highlight each and every post else it looks like common itself. Also, you can use post scheduling feature to schedule a post. You can schedule a post when your maximum connections are online.

9. Interact with your followers:


This step is very important. Suppose you’ve shared a post on your facebook profile/page/group and someone has either liked/commented or shared your post, you should give a proper response to them. You should show your gratitude towards that. This will help you build a good relationship with others. If anybody has liked or shared you, say thanks for liking or sharing.

If anyone has commented on your post, write a proper reply and also mention their name in the reply. Also, you should do the same to them. Believe me, that'll give you enormous traffic to your site.

10. You can use Facebook Ads:


This is not compulsory but if you want with a little investment you can promote your post/product to the large audience. It’ll directly give you benefit. Suppose you have written a great post or have published a good e-book, you can do little investment and can promote these. Remember facebook ads are much cheaper than the other ads network and cover the great source of audiences also.

11. Don’t overflow:


Yes! Unlike LinkedIn and twitter, facebook has a social and personal edge where facebook members expect their connection to be personal, not promotional. You should not flood you facebook account with lots of posts, especially if your close friends and families are connected, who are not from the same profession. It’s a good idea to keep engaged your followers but not too much. You can use Twitter and LinkedIn for this purpose which leans more towards the business edge.

Final Words

These were the top 11 tips using which you can increase traffic to your site. But these are not the only way. I’m sure you must be using some more tips to get traffic from facebook, please do share those tips in a comment. If you’re not using these tips, you should use this great platform and get the maximum of it.

Netflix made a lot of noise by blocking most of the VPN providers and denying access to their streaming services to all the users who connect with a VPN. The good news is that Le VPN is amongst the few VPN providers who are still able to unblock Netflix in the US, France, and other countries, with their VPN service as well as with their HybridVPN and SmartDNS.

Multiple Network Locations

As I mentioned earlier, Le VPN has over 700 servers from different parts of the world. All these servers are spread in 110+ countries covering five continents.

With Le VPN servers you can connect to any restricted sites at your location like social media sites, video streaming sites easily and without comprising the security.

With such a huge number of servers, you can connect to any locations as per your desire and need. All the servers are highly reliable and capable of providing the high-speed and reliable network.

Speed

Usually, it has been seen that after using VPN, speed decreases gradually but this is not the case with Le VPN. The presence of Le VPN’s servers all across the location helps them to provide high speeds.

Above is the speed test done after using the Le VPN which clearly shows how reliable it is?
Also, Le VPN provides a HybridVPN service which in combination with SmartDNS provides vibrant streaming solution.

No Log Policy

This is another great feature by the company where it works on “no logs policy”. That means whatever you will browse won’t get logged anywhere else.

Usually, some VPN keeps logs for few days but that is not the case with Le VPN.

Customer Support

Le VPN helps you through FAQs section, knowledge base, and ticketing system. Whenever you will face any issue, just check the knowledge base to see if there is any article related to your issue or not.

If not, just raise a ticket for their support team and be sure to receive timely response and resolution.

They have also recently introduced a live chat on their website, where you can ask them anything and get an instant response.

Pricing

Le VPN is a complete premium VPN service and comes with three different pricing options. You can either select monthly or half-yearly or yearly pricing options.

The monthly plan comes at $9.95/month followed by half-yearly at $7.50/month and yearly plan at $4.95/month.

Do You Have These 5 Important Things in Your Blog Content?

By Ashutosh Jha →
In blogging, we often listen “Content is the king”. Now, a novice blogger would like to know what good content is. When one can say that the blog has good content in it.

If you know what is good content then next obvious thing that you would like to know is, how do you create it?


As a matter of fact, everyone can start blogging but only a few bloggers could create good content on a regular basis. Creating good content is not a science but it is an art.

You have to master this art over a long period of time.

Importance of Good Content

Those days are gone when webmasters use to put 7 to 8 pages on their website and started earning in 2-3 weeks. Now things have changed drastically. Google is not going to appreciate any content which is NOT unique and of high quality.

If you want to establish yourself as a successful blogger or webmaster then you have to create good content. There is no shortcut to it. Just forget about things like SEO or other tricks.

There is no replacement for the good content. In fact, all the top websites and web journals like Mashable, Tech Crunch, and Huffington Post etc. are popular among their readers only because of good content.

If above-mentioned websites, stop creating good content then they may not survive in the competition and eventually lose their loyal readership.

5 Things You Should Have in Your Blog Content


You might have read thousands of articles on the Internet regarding blog content. You will come across many so-called blogging experts or gurus, who are telling you about creating good content.

You cannot create good content by just listening to these experts or gurus. Firstly, you need to read as many as top bloggers. By reading these bloggers you get to know how they are writing and more importantly, what they are writing.

After that, you need to write yourself. You will learn only when you start writing. Hence, after sometimes you can also create good content just like any other top bloggers on the internet.

However, you need to keep following 5 things in your mind before you start creating good content.

1. Fresh and Unique Content

The first point regarding blog content I want to make is that it should be fresh and unique.

If you think, you can copy content from websites like Mashable or Tech Crunch and rewrite that copied content then it is not going to work. Actually, blogging does not work like this.

You need to create content which is new and available on daily basis. If you are unable to create original and fresh content then you are bound to fail as a blogger.

The best way to overcome this challenge is to write more and more.

Hence create content which is unique and fresh.

2. Relevancy of Content to the Contemporary World

Next thing that you have to keep in mind is the relevancy of the content you are writing. What does it mean by relevancy?

Let me here differentiate between blog content and an essay.

The blog is not like an essay where you can write anything. The blog must have some relevant content that can relate to its reader, unlike an essay which is very stale.

In blogging, your content should relate to the state of affairs prevailing in your country and around the world. Thus, every day’s blog post must reflect what is going on around you.

However, on the other hand, an essay is quite monotonous.

Hence blog content must be relevant to the current state of affairs. You cannot blog, living in a vacuum.

3. Dynamism – Videos and Infographics

In the third point, I will build upon my previous argument. As I said earlier blog must not be like an essay. Hence, it must be dynamic. And to make dynamic you need to incorporate certain mediums that can communicate to its readers.

The Just plain text is not going to make a blog, dynamic. Therefore, include relevant videos. In fact, video blogging is in itself another area. But here, we are not at all, talking about video blogging.

So moving on to the topic, your videos must be relevant to the content you are writing.

Secondly, you should try to incorporate infographics. In past few years, infographics have become a powerful tool for bloggers. Although initially, you need to learn about it, but later on, it could be very rewarding.

4. Forums, Groups, and Discussion Boards

Creating good content and presenting it is just half of the story. A blog is incomplete unless you are able to generate an intense debate on it.

How would you come to know that what you have written is liked by the people? The only way to know this is through reading people’s comments.

So, your every blog post must generate debate and discussions among your readers. Visitors who read your posts must comment and leave their reaction. In return, you should also reply and build a conversation with your readers back and forth.

Hence, a blog content must have comments and reactions by it readers.

5. Integration of all Tools & Plug-Ins in the Content to Go Viral

After you have created content and generated a lot of debate & discussion now it is time to use some technology. Your content or the blog post must go viral all over the internet.

Going viral means you should receive a great deal of traffic (readers) for a particular blog post. So how will your content go viral?

You need to get traffic from all possible sources.

Social Media – You must bring in visitors to your blog via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube etc. Create pages on all these sites with the brand name of your blog & updates on regular basis.

Bookmarking – There are dozens of popular bookmarking sites like Stumble Upon, Digg etc. People must like your content and bookmark to these websites.

Ad placement- Don’t make the mistake of placing too many AdSense ads or ads from another network on your site. Follow the blogs like MoneyConnexion if you want to make money with AdSense.

RSS & Feeds – People must subscribe you through feeds & RSS or even by newsletter. If you have some budget, you can go for Aweber which has great features.

In every blog post, integrate all the necessary plug-ins and code snippets to pull a lot of traffic to your content.

Conclusion

Finally, I will conclude by saying your blog would only be successful if you incorporate above mentioned 5 key ingredients into your content.

Hence, start working on them. What do you think?

How to Promote your Event for Free

Here I am going to share the 5 basic ways to promote but believe me these are at most powerful and will give good ROI.

1. Ask Suggestion

Here what you will have to do is put the status on your social profile like Facebook/Google+ etc. about your event and ask suggestion. Now suppose I am organizing the webinar on affiliate marketing so I will write on Facebook something like-

"How many of you are interested in earning $$$ through Affiliate marketing on auto pilot mode. I have done this and want to share my experience with you all. Want to join?
Also, suggest the date and time when you would like to have. Thank you!"

So this is a very simple post but it will attract the visitors. There are many punches I have used like-

• I have asked Questions. People love to answer and share their thought on social media.

• I have thrown the ball on the user's hand that when they want me to organize the webinar? - This will create a connection with the user and it feel that the organizer really cares for the members.

• I have marked about the earning and also have written that I have earned--means? I have done and they will believe me.

So using these types of posts, you can get good number of engagement.

2. Use Twitter Hashtags

The 140 characters will help you a lot. Yes use the #tag and promote your event. If it is a big event, use #eventname in the #tag else use your site name or whichever thing is famous.

You can also; take help of retweet sites where for some credits other will retweet your tweet and you can target larger audience.

3. Instagram

4. Newsletter

If you are in blogging or any online activities, you must be having good audience. So what you would have to do is, prepare a good email template which should include a brief about your event and shoot out email to all your subscribers.

Remember to include the details about the event like why your subscribers should attend your event, what you offer etc. It should be a perfect sale copy.

This method will convert the most because all your subscribers already trust you and it won’t be difficult for them to decide whether to attend or not.

5. Do Guest Posts, ask friends to share

Guest post still works if you are not doing just for backlinks. Find the blogs from the niche in which you are organizing event and approach the admin for a guest post. As you are not asking for backlinks so admin will not have a problem at all.

Now suppose I am organizing event on affiliate marketing so i will identify blogs on Blogging Niche, tech Niche, marketing niche etc. and will approach the admin.

While writing the post, I will mention that "if you want the live experience you should join the webinar". So here I am not asking for links but at the same time I am pulling the members for my events.
