Link Building Tool

White hat SEO link building strategies can’t be automated, but they can be made more efficient

Organic white-hat link building can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. You may send hundreds of emails to earn just 1 backlink. Some websites want you to pay for a link, or add rel=nofollow, eliminating any benefit to your search engine rankings. Worse, if you earn the wrong kind of links or use tactics disapproved by Google, you risk incurring a search engine penalty as the reward for your hard work.

CanIRank’s nearly automated link building software makes earning links easier and more efficient by telling you which link targets are most likely to link to a site like yours, offer dofollow links, and give the biggest boost to your search engine rankings. We’ll even show you which strategies your competitors used to earn their links, and provide detailed step-by-step instructions for how you can do the same.

Quickly research, evaluate, and connect
