Valuable backlink checker.

Instead of showing just the 10 most valuable backlinks, this tool now shows the 100 most valuable backlinks pointing at a specific URL! Use the backlink tool to check the 100 most valuable backlinks for a specific URL sorted by (SEOmoz) Page Authority. Check the most important incoming links for pages on your own website or your competitors. Quality backlinks are still considered as one of the most valuable SEO ranking factors. Optimize the backlink profile of your domain and specific pages to improve your Domain Authority, Page Authority and search engine rankings.

Top 100 most important equity links

The top 100 equity links are generated based on these rules:

  • Depending on your selection:
    • External backlinks pointing to a specific page
    • External backlinks pointing to your complete website
  • The links are followed (nofollow and 302 links are removed)
  • The links are sorted based on Page Authority
  • The links are pointing to your web page from an external website

Please note that If the expected number of backlinks doesn’t match the Total link count.. This is in most cases caused by the fact that the Moz API only returns 25 link per external domain and not the complete list of site wide links.

The returned Backlinks

The most valuable links tool returns these metrics for the links pointing to your web page:

  • URL
  • Anchor text (text or image used for the link)
  • Page Authority
  • Domain Authority
  • Total Links
    • External and Internal Links
    • Dofollowed and nofollowed links

Use the export function to generate a .CSV file for Excel. The valuable backlinks checker uses the Mozscape / Moz API to gather authority and link data. Small_Powered(full) copy

    Very good tool for backlink checking. I found many links and domains which are not even found with AHREFS. Thank you for this wonderful tool. But it shows only 100 links. I Hope you’ll include more links in the near future.

    Thank you.

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hi Vineeth,

      Thanks for your comment. This tool is indeed designed to find the best / most important backlinks.
      In the near future I’ll have a look if I can expand the number of links per URL / Domain.


  2. Aniket Roy says:

    The tools is great but as a feedback, I am suggesting that it would be better if the total number of backlinks be simply mentioned somewhere at the top of the result.

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hey Aniket, Great suggestion!
      I’ll probably add the options below, in the next couple of months:

      • Total number of backlinks
      • Backlinks grouped by domain
  3. Iris says:

    Seoreviewtools is undoubtedly the Best SEO tool to check and monitor competitor’s backlinks and online authority!

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Thanks Iris ;-)

  4. Yama says:

    This is an awesome and powerful tool. I love how quick everything loads and it helps me create my next backlinking plans… Thanks

  5. marc rose says:

    I’m very local service oriented and I have several pages that our on the first page of google and I do get traffic. I see that I have a 1 rating DA and PA. There is decent competition for some of my keywords. Is possible to have a website that generates traffic with only a 1? It’s a young site and I’m trying my best to get it going stronger. I hired someone but that clearly hasn’t worked out well if I’m still at a one.

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hey Marc, if I were you I wouldn’t focus to much on Domain- and Page Authority, because these numbers should be used as an indication to interpret page & domain strength. Getting relevant / well converting traffic to your website is way more important.

      But to answer your question: High DA backlinks will have a big impact on the DA and PA score for your site.

  6. BDdevelopers says:

    Thanks for this tool / service.

  7. Jeremiah Say says:

    Does higher domain authority automatically means a higher ranking in search results? Some sites beg the differ. I am not sure so I ask! It seems to be pretty confusing and a lot of contradiction

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hi Jeremiah,

      A higher domain authority doesn’t automatically mean higher rankings. Domain authority is based on multiple factors including: number of backlink, quality of backlinks, number of linking root domains and relevancy.

      Rankings are based on all the above and of course the on page factors like: content quality, keyword focus, and general theme relevancy of your domain for a specific topic.

      That being said, Domain Authority has a high correlation with rankings and by looking at the authority of a domain you get a pretty good idea of the ranking potential of a domain.

  8. Digiturk says:

    It’s a great tool and thanks for making it available for free. You can however improve it even when you show limited results. Currently it shows many sitewide links – I just used your tool to check backlinks to one of my sites and it showed sitewide links only from 2 domains.

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:


      That would be a great functionality, but unfortunately this setup will double / triple the number of API units to extract this data from the MOZ API.
      So for now this isn’t an option.

  9. Sophia says:

    Nice tool to check backlinks!!

  10. SimplyIrfan says:

    This is one of the best tool to check backlinks .. great work!

  11. Jeffry Alexander says:

    Great tools..

    I’ve been checking my competitors backlinks with it.. Found valuable links which I can use for our off-page strategies.. Many thanks for this!

  12. Chris says:

    Thanks so much for offering this helpful tool. It is very useful. In case you want feedback, I think it would be great if you could please also consider including another column to display the linked page (i.e., the actual page that the backlink goes to on the domain). When selecting “All pages on this domain” it is difficult to know which page each backlink is going to on the domain. Thanks for your consideration.

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hi Chris, Thanks for the feedback!

      That’s a pretty obvious improvement, which I’ve completely overlooked ;-)
      So thanks again for pointing this out and I’ve added your suggestion to my to-do-list.

  13. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

    Hi Glenn, Malik and others,

    The Backlink checker is up and running again after some serious research and debugging!!

  14. Lakewood says:

    When we will be able to use the back link checker again?

  15. Glenn Shelhamer says:

    I don’t know how to check for backlinks. The process isn’t clear. Thank you.

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hey Glenn,

      There seems to be a problem with the tool, I’ll look into it and I’ll give you a heads up when the problem is fixed.

      Thanks for reporting this issue!

  16. Silke says:

    What a great tool. Thank you!

  17. Mike says:

    Hi, i tried this tool but it don’t show me backlinks, only some numbers without any link. Here is screenshot of it: http://prntscr.com/avlpdx

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hey Mike,

      Thanks for uploading the screenshot.

      Just did a check for your domain and the issue is solved

  18. Sarika says:

    It’s a great tool and thanks for making it available for free. You can however improve it even when you show limited results. Currently it shows many sitewide links – I just used your tool to check backlinks to one of my sites and it showed sitewide links only from 2 domains.

    1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:

      Hey Sarika,

      I’ve also encountered these results and it would be a major step forward to group these results by domain. The problem however is the monthly API quota in this case. Because I have to do a lot more request to generate the report as you would like to see it.

      So for now I’m unable to solve this problem.

  19. Lana says:

    Hi there,

    I’m getting an error ” Unable to check URL, status code: 403 Forbidden”

    I think it’s because I’ve blocked a few countries in cloudflare – do you know which countries / the IP for where the search is coming from?

    I’m trying to search the Backlink Tool / Links checker -> External Links -> All pages (and also I tried this page option but both give the error).

    Please let me know what I can do?
    (My site is working fine for me and it’s working for http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com too so my site is not down)


    1. Admin says:

      Hi Lana,

      Thanks for the feedback. Just fixed the issue, you can now use this tool without the 403 warning.

  20. Jeremy Gray says:

    This is an awesome and powerful tool. I love how quick everything loads and it helps me create my next backlinking plans.

  21. jeewan garg says:

    There is some problem with the tool. for every website it is four zeros. Which is not possible. kindly do the needful


    1. Admin says:

      Hi Jeewan, Thanks for pointing out this problem. I’ve done a code update and fixed the problem!

  22. akomeogi says:

    What’s the difference between “This page” and “All pages on this domain” ?

    1. Admin says:

      Hey akomeogi

      The difference is as mentioned above:

      1. “This page” = External backlinks pointing to a specific page
      2. “All pages on this domain” = External backlinks pointing to your complete website (on a specific domain).

      1. Mister Vergara says:

        There is a technical problem as of the moment. The tool cannot generate links. Please fix as soon as possible. Thank you!

    2. Rajendra Reddy says:

      This page to check for only url you enter, All pages is to check for all pages on your website.

  23. David Trounce says:

    Great tool. Easy to use and easy for me to read and understand the SEO metrics I was looking for. Nice to see an SEO tool that isn’t cumbersome and doesn’t require you to jump through hoops! Well done.

  24. Dharmesh Khatri says:

    I have used different tools and all tools show me different backlink numbers. Why is that so?

    1. Admin says:

      Hey Dharmesh,

      My tool is designed to return the 100 most valuable backlinks for a domain. Besides the fact it is limited to the first 100 results it only returns equity links (because they are the important links).
      For more info please check this post: http://www.seoreviewtools.com/what-is-link-equity/

      If you have other questions, just let me know!

    2. Pompa says:

      Is this data updated real time? Thanks!

      1. Jasja ter Horst (admin) says:


        This data is not real time. MOZ updates their index approximately on a monthly bases.
        This means you have to wait about a month to see new backlinks appear in the index.

        (In case of a low authority domain it can take even longer, because these are crawled less frequent)


  25. Athena Tria says:

    Is this data updated real time? Thanks!

    1. Admin says:

      Hi Athena,

      The backlink data and all related metrics are updated monthly.

  26. Dua biji says:

    This Awesome tool, Thanks Admin :)

  27. Techeep says:

    No backlinks found. But why at Alexa.com, there are 16 backlinks for my blog?

    1. Admin says:

      Hi Techeep,
      If you’re looking at the statistics returned by this tool you’ll see the exact number of external equity links pointing to the root of your domain or a specific page.

      In your case all the links found by the mozscapi api are non-equity links. The Alexa.com backlink checker does return the number for all backlinks equity or non-equity backlinks.

      This tool only shows the top 100 most valuable backlinks and found no equity links to return for your site.
