    Hello guys,

    Im trying to map out my competitors strenght which is hard to do if im not able to spot any PBNs powering their websites.

    Can someone tell me how I can use Google for this, since they removed the operator that was used for this a while ago :(. I suspect they blocking out Majestic, Ahrefs bots etc so the tools are useless.

    Thanks

    I don't see how you are contributing to this thread in any way. The reason you research your competitors is to assess how competitive a keyword/niche is. If I see someone with a huge PBN ranking, I would much rather keep looking for a low competition niche/KW than waste my time and resources trying to outrank a strong PBN.

    OP - Try googling naked URLs from the moneysite or brandname. Also try some less popular link checkers. There are a few lists circling around the web.

    Better off using a low profile link profiler or do the math on your own

    There are quite a few backlink profiling tools which are not very famous, u will find thise listing out some of the baclinks. You can get an idea from them but they also may not list all the backlinks.

    Why do not you go with Ahrefs there you will check the main links which are ranking good,else have Backlink checker for your competitors.

    Funny how this post spurred a small convo in a thread from a week ago.
