If you are a webmaster struggling to keep up with links or daunting to monitor the changes, then here is the solution. With Linkody in place, you need not worry about managing your excel sheets with data of inbound links to your domain.

Why do you need to monitor backlinks?

Ever seen those ugly 404 error returned on some URLs and those links magically disappearing which you once thought were permanent inbound links. Intentionally or unintentionally unmonitored links could be problem than reward speaking in-terms of SEO. Backlinks can be removed purposely or can go for a toss unintentionally when the page content is changed. All this can happen without you noticing it.

On the other hand if you monitor and get alerts about such changes and disappearance you can react and take quick measures saving yourself from being penalized (from Google!). Those of you who track and monitor backlinks with spreadsheets or desktop applications can very well understand the shortcomings.

There are other tools out in the market like Raven and Jetrank which have the features similar to Linkody in addition to complete SEO services. Linkody on the other hand can only be used to monitor backlinks and other inbound links related aspects.

Linkody does best at what it promises to do. But I give it a 4 star rating only because of the fact that it can be used to gauge the backlink aspect only while there are choices for me to get packaged SEO analytics tools which also have similar features in them. Otherwise, a good tool which gives value for money and trust worthy.
