1. There are quite a few similar tools like this. Why launch RankSignals?

There are 3 link graph providers in the market at the moment; their tools provide raw backlinks analytics. The backlinks data is useful, but hardly actionable. We will provide actionable insights into the data, and build tools around it to help you get more links & traffic.

We are providing the backlinks analytics for free; whereas our competitors charge over $100/mo. At the moment, the size and freshness of our index is at par with our competition. Our tool provides you open access to unlimited backlinks, while our competitors provide access to only couple thousand unique domains links. youtube_ranksignals
