Base VS Link Checker

Why our Link Building & Link Management Tool is a Great Link Checker Alternative

Running a highly efficient SEO team implementing powerful off-site SEO strategies can be a very difficult task if you don’t have the right tools for the job. This challenge is even more apparent for SEO agencies that have large link building teams and cater to numerous clients (even hundreds of clients in our case). This is exactly why we decided to develop Base - a highly affordable and easy-to-use link management tool that can help you remove the sheet-based chaos and automate link building processes.

Our team realized that the market for user-friendly link building tools lacks the platforms capable of performing all-round link management tasks, and Base is here to remedy that. However, Link Checker is definitely a worthy adversary.

Base and Link Checker offer a variety of useful features for link builders. But, we realized that Base offers certain benefits that Link Checker users are deprived of. Frankly, both tools are highly effective link building platforms, but some LB teams value certain Base features and benefits more than those provided by our direct competitor.

Let’s see how our tool compares with this one.
