Being able to have some records of your website’s link building campaign & expenses has many advantages.For those who don’t have any paid tools, let’s use what we have. Site Explorer to export the first 1000 results to a TSV file.You can also use Open Site Explorer, or any number of smaller backlink checker tools.On your spreadsheet, mark down any of your top links, any sites that come up a lot in the backlink checkers, which sites linked to you without request or submission, and any other interesting notes.Try and come up with a rough draft of different link partners and the number of page links you have pointing to your site.
Either with Google Spreadsheets or with Excel, create a new spreadsheet.
