Link Manager automatically gathers, monitors and updates all the backlink data for your campaigns, the number of backlink we gather will be limited to your campaign settings and account limits. With these data you will be able to:

  • Get backlink data from your campaigns with various link metrics and conduct in-depth backlink analysis
  • Monitor changes of your backlink profile over time so you can track your performance over time and be informed if anything happens
  • Export all links data to an Excel spreadsheet for further analyze or reporting
  • Add links to Link Manager manually if you have extra link data that we can't provide

To get to the Link Manager, click on the Link Manager under the Links section of the left navigation menu:
