OpenLinkProfiler Free Backlink Tool

A few days back I talked about Domain authority which is the best way to measure the success of a domain or a webpage. If you read that article, you must be aware of the fact that: backlink is still one of the biggest criteria for higher ranking of a webpage.  

Enter your domain name below to check the backlinks:

Today, I’m talking about one of the finest free tools to check backlinks which let you find the freshest links to your site.

As a free option, this is a great solution to check backlinks for your domain or any domain you want. The free tool which I’m talking about today is OpenLinkProfiler (OpenLinkProfiler website is dead. You can use SEMRush instead). This is a great-looking tool to check links to any domain (Including yours) and you can do much more than just checking links.

Features of OpenLinkProfiler:

What I liked the most about this tool is, that it let you check backlinks for unlimited domains and you can also download the newest 1000 links to any domain in .csv format. Here is a screenshot of this tool for the ShoutMeLoud domain:

This tool offers a great feature for backlink builders to identify good domains to get links from. The idea is to analyse your competitor’s site and filter the result based on “Only links based on trusted top level domains“. It will show the results from the top domain and also the LIS score. LIS is the link influence score of any page, and it’s calculated on a scale of 0-100%. (I don’t have enough information such as how the LIS score is calculated at this moment). Here is the screenshot of the filter page, see the results this tool showed:

You can further click on any link in the link destination column to find more links to the site. OpenLinkProfiler also distinguishes domains into industries. You can find detailed information about industry categorisation on their FAQ page. Here are a few notable features which you should know about OpenLink Profiler:

Link Disinfection:

Link Disinfection tools show all the low quality and bad links pointing to your site. All the links shown in this tab might not be bad always, so you should carefully audit all the links. You can further use Google disavow link tool to ignore these links.

Pages- Find domain pages with maximum links:

This tab lets you find all the pages of any domain with the maximum number of links. This is a good strategy to find out the top linked pages of any domain. If the majority of links are high-quality, that page might be the most valuable page of the domain.


Backlinks by year

This section shows the link pointing to any domain by age. This is a good way to find out if links are built on an aged domain in a short period or if it was built over time.

There are many more features that you will love in this free online backlink tool. Such as:

  • Countries: This section let you see which countries link to any domain.
  • LIS distribution: Here you can see how many high LIS or low LIS domains link to a domain. It’s normal that you might notice a huge number of low LIS domains linking to your site, but what you should focus on is the site with a high LIS score linking to you.
  • LinkAlerts: Send you an email notification for newly discovered links.

Overall as a free tool, OpenLinkProfiler is a great backlink analysis tool for any SEO guy or a blogger like you and me. Go ahead and try this site, I’m sure you will find it useful.

Don’t forget to share this awesome free backlink tool with others on Facebook and Twitter. If you know about more similar tools, let me know via comments.

      # 1 difference is with the pricing model of the services you mentioned. Ahrefs is completely premium software, where OpenLinkProfiler is completely free.

      and In terms of backlink database information provide, Ahrefs is the best tools available on the web.

      However, I do use OpenSiteExplorer by Moz, it’s completely free.

  15. Don Ocso

    Very useful information for seo freaks like myself. Harsh, please do you know any tool that can help me identify my competitors traffic source?

  16. Neil

    Hi Harsh
    I think the link disinfection option and filtering option will come very handy. I was looking for a tool like this for some time. Will take a look, surely. Thanks for sharing.


  17. Kanishk Kunal

    This is surely a great free tool for exploring backlinks of own site as well as of competitors. Thanks for Sharing! 🙂

  18. Parth

    I was already checking openlinkprofiler right now! and recently got an email about your blog post! Woohoo! All i can say is the best tool if we are intended to check backlinks only.

  19. Pritam Nagrale

    This is an interesting tool , first time i have heard about this, is this paid one? if it is then what will be the cost of this ?
    DO they have any paid version ?

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      You might have skimmed through the article, that’s why you ended up asking this question 😉
      This tool is completely free and you might not need to upgrade to their parent company SEO solution.

      1. Pritam Nagrale

        Ohhhh yeah!! I missed that part , I have started reading directly from features of the tool, I was very excited to understand the features so missed the starting, My mistake ,
        Thanks !!!
