Base VS Monitor Backlinks

Why is our Link Building & Link Management Tool a Great Monitor Backlinks Alternative

We know how hard it is to optimize your link building workflow.

This is why we created Base - a highly affordable and easy-to-use link management tool that can quickly help you remove the sheet-based chaos and automate link building processes.

Both Base and Monitor Backlinks are very practical and highly effective link building tools. Let’s see how our tool compares with one of the most popular competitors on the market.

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

If you didn’t find yourself in any of the groups mentioned above, take a look at the list of features that Base offers and are not available in Monitor Backlinks to the same extent:

  • Free Plan Pricing Option - with the Base free plan, you are able to get 500 links, 4000 monthly link checks and up to 3 users; while ALL Base features are available to you 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 - Unclaimed For Client - this feature optimizes Link Opportunity claiming workflow as it allows you to quickly check which domains from your database are available for building links (haven’t yet been claimed by another team-mate), 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. This feature allows you to speed up link upload and health check even more. 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 an unlimited number of clients and tag them by niche, category, agency, etc.
  • Better and More User-Friendly UI - though this criterion may vary depending on the observer/user, we feel that Base features a more user-friendly UI.
