There are several ways to add your backlinks, so let’s go over them.
1. When you add your domain
When a domain is added, there is an optional feature that searches and imports your backlinks and also activates the auto-update option. This is the first and most common way to do your initial backlink import.
The following methods are done on the Backlinks page, so let’s go over there.
2. Click on Check for new backlinks
After the initial import, we will regularly check for new backlinks and import them, but you can also manually request a new check.
3. Manually add backlinks
To do this, click on the “Add backlinks” button.
You will then be presented with two options:
a) Copy/Paste URLs
Just copy and paste your backlinks into the text box. Make sure to add only one per line.
b) Bulk import from file
Use a CSV or XLS file to bulk import your backlinks. This is particularly useful if importing from other sources or tools.
After you’ve completed any of the mentioned methods, KatLinks will import and analyze all backlinks. The process takes several minutes while we check for several backlinks metrics and additional data. Click here to learn more about this.
The import process happens in the background, so it is safe to leave the page. You will see a notification bar letting you know that the process is still ongoing.
Once it is completed, we will send you an email letting you know, the notification bar will disappear and your backlink list will be shown on the main table.
How to delete backlinks
Backlinks can’t be deleted directly from the backlinks page, but you can archive them. Follow this guide to learn how to do it.
