    Get a raventools trial account, you get a few free backlink reports in it.

    With ahrefs you can export the top 500 using their free account. Would recommend that

    I would also recommend ahrefs in case you want a free service/subscription.

    Scrapebox has a backlink checker.


    It works. But it's shit. It's uses a free service and the no. of backlinks reported is much lesser than majestic or any other decent service. It's only good enough for a very rough reference, or if you don't have any other option.

    Another methods is to go to alexa and look up the competitors website.
    Then look at "sites linking in"

    Then you have a list of websites you can apply to / comment on / post articles etc

    I like ahrefs, it seems to return more infomation than any of the other in my experience. One big problem is that you are limited to 15 requests a day with the free account, although you can squeeze a few more out by doing your search first before logging in. Then log in after the search has been performed and it won't deduct it from your 15 but will reveal all of the data.

    What i do with scrapebox to get competitor site backlinks is this:

    First method: I select "custom footprints" and then type in the harvester link:competitordomain.xxx if i want to get backlinks to any page or linkdomain:competitordomain.xxx if i want to get backlinks only to the homepage. Than select only yahoo from the search engines.

    Second method: i type in the harvester site:competitordomain.xxx, select "custom footprint" and google from the search engines. Then i scrape all indexed url's of the competitor domain. Then remove duplicate url's and with backlink checker addon get the backlinks not just to the main domain but for the internal pages also. The new backlink checker addon is not good as the old one but it is still useful.

    Third method: i type "link:" in the harvester box and in the keyword list window i load this list:

    competitordomain.xxx a
    competitordomain.xxx b
    competitordomain.xxx c
    competitordomain.xxx d

    ... and so on for all alphbet letters and i use numbers sometimes. Select "custom footprint" and google as a search engine.

    I combine the backlinks from these 3 methods with the free report from ahrefs and i got a good amount of competitor site backlinks.

    cognitiveseo dude. They do a trial. But paid version is well worth the money.
