    “Linkio researched the backlink profiles for top ranking sites to identify anchor text patterns and used that data to create an algorithm that provides anchor text recommendations.” – As a user of SEOJet (which should be on your list) I have a hard time believing you didnt just copy their research. Linkio looks and sounds like an exact copy of SEOJet. And its pretty obvious that outreach mama owns linkio.

  • Thanks for this list. I might purchased one of your recommendation.

  • Mohammad Farhan

  • Vlad Hilliard

    Lots of great information here. I personally like using Screaming Frog paired up with MOZ. The best tool that I’ve come across can be found on captivenest.com, more specifically, here https://captivenest.com/free-online-seo-tool/

    It basically generates a report that you can view immediately, then also delivers a PDF copy to your inbox. Pair this up with any of the mentioned tools on this site and you’re golden!

  • Wayne Pearce

    Ton of good information. I am using Google Webmaster Tools and SEMrush for my SEO. http://waynepearce.com

  • Erich Behmen

    https://serptimizer.com offers a keyword based link prospecting tool with a 14day free trial and a low price from 15€ per month. There are also more features in the same package like competitor analysis, site audit and keyword tracking.

  • Linknabber is not working Ajay! You may wanna update the post.

    Great post btw. At our link building agency, we use buzzstream to build links for brands and trust me when I say this, Buzzstream gives the best bang for your buck in terms of functionality. It is IMO the number One link building tool.

    • I would like to add that buzzstream is however not very automation focused. At our agency – www.attentionalways.com, we are considering to switch to pitchbox after trying it out over last week and although it costs a lot, it saves a linkbuilder a ton of time as well!

  • I was actually trying to looking for some link building automated tool for some of my projects. However this list is a good as it is. I found some of the tools that i can use directly. And I definitely will try out the tool recommended by Brian Dean.
