SEO Backlink Monitor


SEO Backlink Monitor is a WordPress plugin that lets you track your Link Building campaign. Add your link and check if it is do follow or no follow (desktop and mobile user agent), live or not. It can auto-check all your links with wp-cron (you can select the frequency) and get a report to your email address, when a link changes its state.

It is a modified/optimized version by Active Websight from the original Backlink Monitoring Manager (v0.1.3); special thanks to Syed Fakhar Abbas <3.

It would be nice if Cloudflare Bypass added. Since behind Cloudflare does not always find the link.

I was looking for plugin like this for a year. Simple and works! If you are building links from PBN or any website, this will help you monitor if your link is live or dead. It will be nice if you can make Add Links in Bulk and check if Google index them. Anyway, great job!
