    hi
    I have managed to get my site some high quality backlinks. My concern is that anyone doing a backlinkwatch can find them all.
    I am wondering if it is possible to make the backlinks really hard to find?
    One thought that I had was to build lots of low quality links as well, so that when someone is looking at the backlinks, they will go through all the low quality links and get tired and not really notice all the good ones. I would do a scrapebox blast to my site if it was 2011 but now I dont want to risk it.
    so any ideas how i can make my high quality backlinks hard to find?

    Doing a scrapebox blast to your money site in the hopes that a competitor will get tired of trying to find your quality links is insanity in my opinion!

    Short of building links with a private blog network, then blocking the robots from Ahrefs, Majestic, backlinkwatch etc. I can't think of much you are able to do to cloak your link building efforts.

    Not sure if this is a good idea, but you can do backlinks to a 'dummy site', then 301 redirect that 'dummy site' to your 'money site'
    When people try to scrape backlinks from your 'money site', all they will see is 'dummy site' + some general/natural backlinks.

    If you have some good links keep building quality backlinks. I wouldnt experiment with 301 and risk.In short - you cant hide backlinks from someone who knows how to analyse :)

    Don't let your competitors distract you. Just focus on building your links, you will always be ahead of them as the backlinks take a while to show up in free tools.

    I think it's not possible to hide.

    Yes, it's possible. You need to get ssl for your domain and build links to the https: version of your URLs. For good measure, block the various bots of services that SEOs use to find backlinks in your robots.txt - ahrefs, seomajestic, seomoz link explorer.
