Rank Cracker Review

For the past couple of weeks I have had the opportunity to play around with Matthew Woodward’s new free software Rank Cracker.  Over the past year or so Matthew has built up a very popular blog in the internet marketing space and has now decided to release his own piece of software.

What is Rank Cracker?

Rank Cracker allows you to discover what link building tactics your competitors are using to dominate the SERP’s and keep you locked out. In principle this is a gray hat SEO tool as it allows you to find automated link building footprints which you can replicate however there are some “white hat” uses for the tool too.  It is very easy to use, even for novices to pick up.

#1. Download your Link Data

To begin with you will need to download as much link data as possible for your competitors, personally I use ahrefs however you can use whichever tool you like.

As this is a bulk exercise it might be worth using a VA to download all the different competitor links for you. Continue reading

This isn’t how it was supposed to be was it? Continue reading
