How Many Backlinks Do I Have (And How Many Does My Competition Have?)

One thing that will be important to your success online will be understanding how backlinks work, and recognizing how you can use backlinks to your advantage.

To put it quite simply: backlinks are the links on other sites that point back to your site – and backlinks are important because they are one of the main things that a search engine’s index software will use in order to determine how relevant your site is to any given search. The more backlinks you are able to collect (and the higher-ranking the sites providing these backlinks are), the more highly you will find yourself being ranked. But while it is all well and good to understand the concept of backlinks, this provides little in the way of helping you to know whether you are successfully accumulating backlinks yourself. Sure, you could look at your search engine rankings and see if you are moving upward as quickly as you would like, and from this you could hazard a guess as to whether or not you are accumulating as many backlinks as you would like, but wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to see exactly how many backlinks you have – and how many backlinks your average competition for a particular keyword has?

The answer, of course, is “Yes – this most certainly would be nice!” And the good news is that Webfire provides one such tool!

By using Webfire’s site and market analysis tool, you will be able to constantly track how many backlinks your site has for any given keyword – and will also be able to see how many backlinks your average competition has for the same keyword. In this way, you will be able to determine how well you are doing compared to your competition in the way of backlinks, and will also be able to determine what you might consider doing differently to increase your success.

 

Constantly keeping an eye on all aspects of your site – and constantly tweaking and adjusting your site according to your findings – will be vital if you want to get the most out of your website, and with Webfire’s site and market analysis tool, you will be in the perfect position to do this!
