In this video, we’ll walk you through the process of discovering your backlinks using the Hike SEO platform. You can watch the video below, or read the content underneath, if you prefer a summarised version.
Step 1: Access Your Backlinks on the Platform
After logging into the Hike platform, navigate to “Backlinks” to view a list of all backlinks currently pointing to your website. If the list is empty, it might mean that your website is new.
Step 2: Understand the Backlink Details
The backlinks are sorted by authority, with the highest authority links displayed first. You can see the linking website and the page containing the link, allowing you to verify the backlinks easily.
Step 3: Explore Additional Features
You can switch between a list view and a card view, sort backlinks by date, and even export your backlinks for use in spreadsheet software like Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel.
Step 4: Analyse Your Backlink Metrics
The platform provides quick access to metrics such as historic domain authority, trust flow, citation flow, and the number of external backlinks and referring domains over time. You can also export this data for further analysis.
Step 5: Manage Disavowed and Lost Backlinks
By clicking on the disavowed links section, you can view and manage disavowed links through Google Search Console. The lost backlinks feature helps you identify potential link reclamation opportunities by reaching out to the websites that removed your links.
Step 6: Add Backlinks Manually
If a recent backlink isn’t showing up yet, you can add it manually using the “Add a backlink” option.
The Hike SEO platform is an excellent tool for tracking your website’s backlink performance and improving domain and page authority through quality backlinks.
