Link Building is the main part of search engine optimization as the more a website builds links from authority websites, the more will be the chances of its ranking higher in Google SERP. So whenever we think of manual link building then firstly we want to know about the competitor sites which are linking to them. So it becomes important to know from where your competitors are getting backlinks. In the past, Yahoo explorer was very famous and often used to get backlink data of any website but now very few tools provide this important information.
Let’s check these Free backlink checker tools :
