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

Happy Link Building!
There is a symbiotic relationship between news media and the growing internet population. Both parities continuously raise the bar for instantaneous modes of communication and commerce. The pressure from the consumers is on, but those on the other end have adopted, becoming just as responsive and dynamic. This exponential trend has kept online marketers and PR specialists on their toes, crouched and ready to spring at the next chance for the media spotlight to gain exposure to those consumers. The fluctuating nature of media and consumerism has revitalised the traditional methods that once made media coverage possible. Resultantly, the blueprint for online PR has evolved into what is known as newsjacking.
Most importantly Newsjacking can help you generate the high quality links that Google loves. When you position yourself right, and properly implement a real-time PR strategy, you could be looking at a formula for overnight success. Now isn’t that just music to your ears?
What is Newsjacking?
The term was coined by David Meerman Scott, marketing strategist and bestselling author. In his own words, he describes newsjacking as:
“the process by which you inject ideas or angles into breaking news, in real-time, in order to generate media coverage for yourself or your business.”
This is a quick short tip using a free tool to help you scale your link building.
