  1. Hello Vina,

    This was a very informative article. I agree that backlinks may not hold the importance that they once did, but they surely are still important and gives us still some juice as it relates to the search engines and SEO.

    I have been using the free service of Ahrefs, but the free version does have it limitations. You can only get an analysis report for up to ten pages.

    I am surely going to give some of these other tools a look today and see what kind of analysis they I can capture. Thank you for sharing with us today.
