    Different backlinks in Search Console


    Hi, my website has multiple backlinks but list of these links does not match. Search Console shows me different list which has many more links pointing to my site. But SEOProfiler shows me very less links.
    Basically there is a difference in the list of links. Can anyone suggest their view here.

    Thanks.

    No single backlink checking software finds all the links pointed to a site. Why ?? You would have to scan the entire net to be sure that you found them all. Google to my knowledge has the most cpu's dedicated to scanning the web and finds most of the links, but even they don't find them all.

    You need to track your backlinks using a few different sources then create a composite list to have a more accurate list of backlinks. I use GSC and Spyglass myself.

    I've found the best tool so far is Ahrefs, according to a couple of surveys I've read they supposedly crawl more aggressively than Bing which is pretty impressive. The good thing about Ahrefs is a free account is enough to monitor new backlinks pointing to your site, I think to get a free account you need to pay for a 7-day trial which is $7 though - but in my opinion, it's well worth it.

    But like KOS said, all tools will come back with different results - I don't have a huge budget for SEO tools as it isn't my profession, so without breaking the bank I use Google's search console and a free account on Ahrefs

    Edit: I did recently put my hand in my pocket to get Spyglass - which is also very good

    Thanks to both of you.

    I do use SpyGlass but when I see the same list in Search Console I was not convinced with the list of Console.

    Anyway I have few links which are pointing to my website according to SpyGlass but when I tried hitting that URL (manually) I do not see my website links on those pages. What could be the scenario here.

    Thanks.

    Could be the links have been removed.

    What's the domain name ? Can you provide a sample of the links you can not find ?

    Then we may be about to shed more light on it.

    Can you clarify how to get a free account from AHREFS? All I see is a 7-day free trial, then it's supposed to cost over $1000 a year...
