    From what I know you have to block their bots on the sites pointing at your money site if you don`t want your competition to know your backlinks.

    Blocking them from crawling your money site will NOT hide your backlinks. It will only hide outgoing links on your money site.

    If you want to hide your backlinks, you must have control of the sites pointing to your money site. For example if you have your own PBN, you must block spiders on pbnsite1.com, pbnsite2.com, and so on.

    Your money site backlinks will still be visible on backlink checkers if you block their bots. What it will do is exclude your site from the list of backlinks shown for the sites yout money site links to. For example, if I link to CNN.com from moneysite1.com and block Ahrefs' bot, when you look up the backlinks of CNN.com on Ahrefs, moneysite1.com won't be listed among them.

    As others have said, to hide your money site backlinks, you have to block the bots on the sites that link to yours, and you can only block them on sites that you own, for example, if you are linking to your site from a private blog network. If the links are coming from sites you do not own, there's nothing you can do.

    I'll add that the main reason to block moz/ahref/et all is to hide PBN links and prevent competitors from reporting them. If you're running your own PBN, this is a critical step. If you're buying links, you can only hope your service provider is taking this step.

    If you're not using PBNs, I don't think there's much to worry about.

    If you do hide your backlinks, it's probably a good idea to have something pointing to your money site that's visible, like web 2.0s or social bookmarks. It would look rather suspicious otherwise.
