    After the recent updates a lot of people start blocking Ahrefs, MajesticSEO and Moz bot
    via .htaccess and private blog network so we'll see their effectiveness decrease over time.

    Is there an alternative way to scrape my competitor tier 1 link via scrapebox? Will the "site.com" operator work?

    Is that what the sb backlink checker do? I read that sb backlink checker use the free
    Moz link checker which is shit.

    This is how to find the PBN blogs linking to any site. It's a quick, nifty method I discovered when I had the same problem as you do.

    Enter link:domain.com into Google and click search. Replace the domain.com in the search query with your competitor's domain name.

    You'll see some PBN blogs in the results. Click on one of the PBN blogs and reverse engineer it to find the rest of the PBN blogs in the network.

    This is what I was going to suggest. Remember - people still need their links to be indexed in Google so that's the best way to do it.

    True Link:domain.com will work also just Google his domain name with www and without www because mostly people use naked urls in blog posts. try this Allintext:"domain.com"

    This is great Idea, but can we find all the backlinks of competitor if he have tons of backlinks?

    No, however I believe that is the best option so I'd go with it.
