Backlinks Indexer Review – Profile Links Case Study

Have you been wondering how to index backlinks most efficiently? Backlinks Indexer is the linklicious alternative, I was referring to in my previous post. If you’re a linklicious user (and even if you aren’t) please read the previous post and then return here. If you are in need of an indexing service, you’ll understand why you need to make the switch to Backlinks Indexer. This case study was done with a 5 day trial enterprise subscription. Five days were enough to process ALL profile links.

Again, as we have done in the linklicious case study, the chosen links were profiles as they’re one of the hardest to index. I took all of the urls that linklicious was unable to index and plugged them into backlinks indexer to see what it can do with all those non-indexed links. I gave it a timeframe of 15 days. For the first test, I have kept track on the indexing growth momentum for 3 days, the second one only contains the number of indexed links after 15 days. Here are the results:

backlinks indexer chart


31 links indexed after 24 hours (processed 506 links out of 1724)
72 links indexed after 48 hours (processed 1008 links out of 1724)
113 links indexed after 72 hours (processed 1512 links out of 1724)
748 links indexed after 15 days (processed 1724 links out of 1724)
1092 links indexed after 45 days (New Update from October)


211 links indexed after 15 days (processed 531 links out of 531)

As we see, backlinks indexer managed to index more than 63% of all those links that linklicious could not index. This is a tremendous success! And if you would want to index all these remaining, you would just plug them into backlinks indexer again and it would do its magic.

  1. Awesome analysis. I’ve been using both for two weeks (LL) for longer, but thinking about dropping LL and just sticking with Backlinks indexer. Thanks for case study, look forward to future ones.

  2. Hey, I had a couple questions:
    What did you use to verify that the links had been indexed? And, what sort of movement did you see in SERPs?


  3. Hey Sam,

    I used scrapebox for verification.

    Movement in SERPs was upwards. The change was not huge though, because the links that were used for testing were profile links, and those don’t count as much as they used to do. You need lots and lots of them to see bigger changes. And the other and more important thing that you really need is to index them. Either with backlinks indexer or with some other service. However, backlinks indexer is the best one I have tried.

  4. Thanks. My concerns are these:
    1.) I’ve been trying to email these people for a week and they don’t return emails.
    2.) Indexing absent SERPs movement is worthless: Whether or not a link is indexed is in and of itself a meaningless metric. (Although as you said you saw upward movement. I wonder if you might share how much?) There seems to be no one else talking or curious about whether or not the indexing of their profiles with Backlinks Indexer is actually providing the presumed benefit of indexing.

    Backlinks Indexer is cheap though so I went ahead and bought yesterday. The dashboard is buggy. Anyway, I’m going to run the same 50 unindexed profiles for an entire 5 days and use SEObook rank checker to monitor SERPs (since improved SERPs is the only reason to use the tool).

    The 50 profiles I’m using are all on PR4 to PR6 root domains, the keyword of the anchor text is the same in each profile, and all links point to the same URL. I’ll come back and give my results in a week or so.


  5. 1) I contacted support two times as of now and received a reply in less than 24 hours from a guy named Dan. I believe he is the owner, but am unsure.

    2) I could not disagree more. Delete all your indexed backlinks and see what happens. Indexing is important. But, as you say the real metrics are the SERPs. And if they’re going up, that’s all that matters.

    My SERP results aren’t going to help much anyone, because as you know each niche is different and if you need say 100 quality links to rank first in once niche, you’re gonna need 1000 quality links to rank in the other. That being said, I used a couple of keywords in a competitive niche (lets say 7 on a scale of 10), and the movement in serps was from 0 to 15 positions upwards.

    I am eagerly awaiting your results, the more tests we do the better. But do at least two tests please, maybe better three if you can. Every test should be repeated at least twice in order to see it in the real light. Share your findings!

  6. Hey,
    I think we’re talking at cross purposes, admin – we are actually in agreement. My point was that an indexed backlink does not, in itself, move SERPs, i.e. its not always that simple (though often is).

    I’ll get right to the nitty gritty.

    The 50 profiles I used were all on PR4 to PR6 root domains, the keyword phrase of the anchor text was the same in each profile, consisting of 3 words, and all links point to the same URL.

    The starting rank for the webpage for the keyword phrase I used was at the top of page 5 (Google U.S.). I ran the profiles through backlinks indexer for 5 days. No links have ever been built for this specific keyword phrase prior to these profiles. The niche is very competitive.

    Bet ya’ll want results…

    Don’t ya…..


    So yes, I’m sold. I should further mention that the domain to which the links point is only 4 months old, competing against aged, authority domains–one with a PR6 and over 4,000 links (Yahoo site explorer) pointing to the page.

    Its also worth mentioning that ALL semantically related keyword phrases to the one tested against experienced remarkable improvement, some by a full 10 positions.

    I apologize to anyone reading this for the ambiguity in not providing specific site details or linking to a site in this comment. Its that I work for a prominent SEO company and we’re constantly looking for an edge.

    I do not work for nor am I affiliated in any way with Backlinks Indexer. The bottom line is that Backlinks Indexer is an awesome service.

  7. Lovely, just lovely!

    Results speak for themselves. I will run backlinks indexer again through the same kind of links that you did, namely high PR profile links. We’ll see the SERP results.

    I just upgraded my plan once again too.

  8. Slipped to page 1 position 10 over night 🙁 (sematically related keyword phrases slipped some, as well).

    This was expected, though, given–in part– how dramatic the change in position was. This has nothing to do with Backlinks Indexer, though, which has done the job it says it will.

    My concerns, now, however, are these:
    1.) The tool is clearly powerful and may cause such keyword traction as to flag a site’s link portfolio for Google’s very manual, very capricious review. This implies that less might be more; or, that spreading the indexing out over a greater period of time might provide better results over the medium- and long-term.

    2.) The actual appearance of links in the index that are weak in themselves (profile links) may not last very long. This implies that while the tool works and does what it is supposed to do, the effects of using the tool may be short lived; or, require a steady influx of profiles all for the same keyword phrase so as to be ultimately advantageous to positively move and/or maintain SERPs improvement.

    Of course, much of this is conjecture at this point, given the equal possibility that the keyword phrase I tested against may still be settling in to SERPs (i.e. experiencing that inevitable, but momentary, drop before the push to the top).

    So, I’ll continue to update here as necessary.


  9. It’s only normal to continue building backlinks in order to maintain your positions. Others in your niche are surely doing it too.

    As for the slip, normal too. I always found that in each niche I have to find the right balance of links. In some niches I can blast away, others are more sensitive to a huge influx of backlinks. Velocity is important in all cases though, thus the need to continue building links.

    But as someone who’s working for an SEO agency, I’m sure you know all of this already.

    I tested this service against profile links for merely one reason; Because they’re the hardest to index. That’s not to say that I’m advising to use profile links only, quite the opposite. Use other kinds of links. And even if they’re indexed already, you can give them some further boost with backlinks indexer.

  10. Appears to have stabilized on page 1, position 7 (Google U.S). According to scrapebox, none of the links have fallen away from the index, so they might be there to stay (woot!).

    I’m going to throw another 50 profiles at it and run them through BI, in the same manner as described above. I don’t expect nearly as dramatic a bump in SERPs this time, since things slow so dramatically once achieving page 1 results. That being said, if these profiles and running them through BI push this site for this keyword phrase into the top three, I’m going to shit a purple twinkie, film it, and post it to YouTube. And then I’m going to demand Backlinks Indexer go public so I can buy stock.

  11. I just went for the Backlinks Indexer trail two days ago. I loaded it up with over 2600 links, mostly profiles. I hope I didn’t overdo it at one time. I found their user interface a bit buggy also as someone said above.

    By the way, I found this page on a Google SERP for: “does Linklicious work after Panda”. I read your other post first about that subject and how disappointed you were (I am too), then at the bottom of the post, you had a link to this page saying there was a Linklicous alternative. Viola, here I am joining in the thread.

  12. I have not personally taken a good look at Backlinks Indexer as of yet. But did notice Sam works for a SEO company, and I happened to be looking for some help keeping up with the demands of Google. If you can let me know how to reach you.

  13. Thanks you SO MUCH for an actual authentic discussion and commentary on this tool. Everything else I’ve read are just crap affiliate reviews that don’t care if it works or not. It looks like backlink indexer does work, so I’m going to go for it soon, and because you are awesome and did an actual fair review, I will buy it through your link. 🙂

  14. I guess they were having some issues with their latest upgrade. Their support gave me some extra boosting and assured me all was working great now. I checked yesterday and it looks like the links I entered are getting indexed faster than I can keep up now. I’m excited to see how this improves my SERPs

  15. Good post with a solid data. Thanks, admin! And thanks to Sam for sharing his info.
    Admin – wonder if it still works well (with a “big g’s” continued tweaking and updates?

  16. Am I missing something here? How can any tool have any effct on how many pages Google chooses to index? A good RSS and ping tool can influence how many pages get crawled but it’s then up to Google to decide if it feels they are worth indexing.

    You are claiming this tool gets a much higher rate of pages indexed than via Linklicious. Please explain how your sofware is able to get more pages indexed ans this just sounds like one company stabbing another in the back for business. your figures and stats are all great but they are not proveable and you have not explained how you seem to have convinced Google to index more pages

  17. Hello Rich,

    thanks for your comment. That is a very nice question, and also very easy to answer.

    The difference is in the way how linklicious and backlinksindexer work. Linklicious is simply a pinger, while backlinks indexer is a tool that MAKES LINKS TO YOUR BACKLINKS. And that is a very good way to “control” what google will index. If a certain url (your backlink in this case) gets linked a lot, that is an indicator for google that the page may be important and that it’s worthwhile to index it. That’s the simple explanation of it and the results speak more than words.

    This post is not in any way intended to backstab a company. But it is telling the truth of the effectiveness after using it for many months. Neither of them is a software/service that I own, but I use both, or rather have used both. Now I just use backlinksindexer.

  18. Why not use Backlinksindexer to make backlinks to your own website, since it is creating backlinks? I understand how the product works, but I don’t understand why you wouldn’t also use it to create backlinks to the site you are trying to juice.
