    Hello Guys,

    When I search for my competitors backlinks in aHrefs or similar, it shows 22k links. When I try to scrape their sites using the Scrapebox and the backlink checker addon, appears very few backlinks, less than 20.

    I want to build a list of backlinks based on them, to create my own links in the same places using GSA SER to build it. They have a lot of interessant sources that I did not find in Backlink lists like SERocket, a lot of edu and gov backlinks from my country. What can I do?

    Download their backlinks from Ahrefs and use GSA to try to post to them.

    Good thinking mimicking your competitors. Not many people do that imo :)

    As mentioned above, use Ahrefs to download their backlinks. I also suggest you you use Majestic as their historic index is bigger. (those are probably links that got them where they are, not recent ones)

    I wouldn't put my hope up about SER tho. If their link sources are HQ you will have a hard time posting from my experience. Manual work might be required.

    There are too many backlinks, it's impossible to do all manually. But I confess I'm having a hard time using GSA.
