LinksIn a web dominated by links it’s important to explore new ways to gather referring domains. One quick and easy way to gain a valuable backlink is to run your site through a range of website analysis tools. Not only does this help you understand the strength of your domain but it also provides a unique URL with a link back to your site.

Below are four sites which all provide a like worth pursuing:

Quarkbase.com

Quarkbase is an excellent tool to get a comprehensive view on your websites strengths and weaknesses. Again, you can simply submit you domain and get a customised page (with a link). The page will also provide information on traffic data, similar sites, social comments and popularity.

This tool is a resource for small business owners and anyone else wanting to promote a website. You can run a quick site report which will explore the ‘on page’ elements that matter most for search engine optimisation – title tags, meta descriptions, headings alt text and more. In turn, the report will create your own customised page with a link back to your domain.
