what does the links back column signify?is it do-follow or no follow?
I just had a quick peek over at link-a55ist.c0m and this is their response:
Links Back ? this column tells you whether the backlink a) exists and b) works.
The link has been removed but still shows up in search engine's backlink list because the list has not been updated yet. In this case the value in this column is "No".
The link is alive and well but the search engines technically do not follow the link and thus it does not have any SEO value. Note, however, that "Nofollow" links are still good for bringing human visitors/traffic to your site.
I just bought SEO Spyglass too and to be honest I don't know what to do with it.
I mean I get seeing your competitors backlinks is cool, but how does that help me?
Like for example, a lot of sites that have High PR backlinks to my competitors I don't think I can get links from anyway. So not sure how that helps me.
Only thing I can see is grabbing the list and running it through Scrapebox for blogs, and maybe the occaisional High PR blog you may find that you can comment on as well LOL.
Curious to how you Spyglass users use it to help you out.
I find blogs that allow comments and steal them. Also look at what my competion is doing for his seo and see how I can copy/beat him. Also look at the anchor texts his using.
That is the only thing I can see it being useful for, finding their blogs and hijacking it.
With regards to anchor text though, I don't really see how that is useful as obv you are competing for the same keywords?
I mean lets say you are trying to rank well for "Blue Widgets", I mean don't you expect the #1 spot for that word to have a lot of anchor text that says "Blue Widgets"?
The only thing I can see is maybe finding related anchor texts and using that to diversify, but other than that I dunno how useful this tool is.
