Base Features That Aren’t Fully Available to Monitor Backlinks Users

If you haven’t recognized your role in the above groups, take a look at the Base features that are not available in Monitor Backlinks to the same extent:

  • Free Plan Pricing Option - with the Base free plan, you get 20 confirmed links, 20 monthly link checks on unlimited monitored domains, and up to 2 users; with ALL Base features available even with the free plan.
  • Ahrefs Integration - Base automatically runs your links through your Ahrefs account and pulls link data like Domain Rating.
  • Unclaimed For Client - this feature optimizes Link Opportunity claiming workflow by allowing you to quickly check which domains from your database are available for building links (haven’t yet been claimed by another team member), and whether or not these websites meet the requirements set by that particular client.
  • Base Chrome Extension - Base has an ace up its sleeve in the form of Base Chrome extension - allowing you to speed up link upload and health check. One of our clients reported a 70% increase in the speed of his link building processes due to this feature alone.
  • Unlimited Number of Clients - Base allows you to add unlimited number of clients and tag them by niche, category, agency, etc.
  • Better and More User-Friendly UI - although this criteria may be subjective, we feel that Base features a more user-friendly UI.
