Yahoo! Site Explorer shut down: What will happen to backlink checkers after Nov 21?

Link-Assistant.Com | Posted in category Uncategorized

Guess you've heard the news about Yahoo! Site Explorer shutting down on November 21st (which is actually today).

In case you're wondering what all the buzz is about: As Yahoo! Site Explorer has been a source of backlink info for many SEOs for years, SEOs all over the world are worrying "will this shutdown limit my ability to find backlinks?" Similar questions hit top 3 popular questions in our customer support today. People keep asking, "what will happen to SEO SpyGlass?"

The answer is: SEO SpyGlass will work normally as before. You're safe with your SEO software and there’s nothing to worry about.

There are just 3 things we'd love to tell you which are making SEO SpyGlass the right choice for backlink research after Site-Explorer shutdown:

1) SEO SpyGlass will continue gathering up to 100,000 links like before.

Unlike other backlink tools that relied on Yahoo! Site Explorer in the first place (and may become obsolete in a couple of hours) SEO SpyGlass will continue gathering hundreds of thousands links without Yahoo! Site Explorer. SEO SpyGlass uses multiple sources to spy out links. If Site-Explorer breaks, your links will be pulled from another place.

2) Your software was massively prepared for this YSE thing over the last month.

Of course we knew about the upcoming change beforehand and made a few important updates to SEO SpyGlass (adding more new backlink sources and upgrading the old ones).

3) Link count will even grow in a few weeks!

Right now we're already running in-house tests of an own multi-billion database of links. This means that you will have a new, very backlink-rich channel for pulling links. You'll be able to use it in SEO SpyGlass in just a couple of weeks.

So, as you see, there's no need to worry - with SEO SpyGlass you won't be caught off guard.

If you're still relying on any other free backlink research tool, this might be high time you switched to SEO SpyGlass as it's already the best desktop backlink finder and is about to beat even online services for backlink search in just a few weeks.

Have a good week with the best SEO software!
