Our take: I’ve always felt that providers who let you start with a free version of their software or service are confident in what they provide. If you are looking to measure the impact of your link building efforts, it’s always important to have third-party software to validate any work you are doing. While there are some who argue that only Google knows what links are important, it’s always crucial to see how people are linking to your content – and sometimes what you find may surprise you.
