Manage and Monitor Your Link Building Campaign

The software provides solid ways to store, organize and manage your link building campaign: categorize links by tags, types of linking sites and types of the backlink itself (paid, organic, etc); monitor the link status change; estimate your backlink anchor text variety and activity.

First, add all the links you want to keep an eye on:

  1. Specify the link status (if it is queued, active, declined, etc);
  2. Provide the link details (anchor text, URL, type);
  3. Link placement (where it is located, the type of the linking site, etc);
  4. (Optionally) Assign tasks and add comments. If you’re a task administrator, you can assign a link record task to another user on your account.

Further actions:

  • After you create the list of all (potential, active or deleted) links you want to manage, select the ones you want to keep track of and add them to monitoring;
  • Generate and export reports on your link building based on the time frames.

Add and Manage Content

The software allows to add content to your blog – it may turn really useful when you need to post to numerous blogs, so you don’t need login to various dashboards.

Just go to “Blog manager” behind the CONTENT tab, click “Add blog”, provide your blog details (including admin login info) and you are done! You can also make the data public to let all the managers access the blog, save and publish content.

  1. Nice, I love trying out new SEO tools, actually I like trying out any new tools, lol

    The reporting aspect looks particularly interesting because of limitations other tools have with checking both site traffic and search rankings.

  2. Hi Ann,

    I’m using Reven seo tools since 11/2 month and it has some awesome features (Forum search and link building manager) . but i m nt impressed with its Website Directory feature (as no tutorial how to use it) . I think if you provide more details on competitor analysis, (data of links like yahoo explorer) and option for finding option for niche directories and links as like in IBP.

    Other suggestion is displaying all information about (server, ip address and who is info at one place) for a particular domain. another suggestion is providing suggestions of site through design & development like (firefox addon – Yslow)

    Thats what i m thinking.
