Backlinks | Your 1st 1000 Backlinks

A business website’s first 1000 backlinks should be a tick-box affair. Sadly we can’t create them for you (don’t be duped by software claiming the reverse) but we do provide feedback reports that chart progress.

Feedback on 1000 Backlinks Progress

As many businesses offshore this backlink admin list, we’ve implemented a “feedback” service which gives you a report based on whether the individual sites below carry your URL. There is usually a 4 to 6 week lag to the time when the search engines and tools like Alexa (from Amazon) notice the links.

Cost := As you can see the below list is free but we sell the feedback reports for £99.99. This covers a 6 month period and the reports are e-mailed out (or available through your login), based on the schedule of your choosing.
