CheckBacklink(string pageUrl, string expectedLinkHref, [string expectedLinkText], [bool checkNofollow]) : string

Verifies that a backlink is present on a page with the correct link text and that there’s no rel=nofollow.

This is a very useful function when validating that links you have “acquired” are still present.

=CheckBacklink(“”,””,”An awesome page”,FALSE)

In the example we verify that there’s a link to “” on “” with the anchorText “An awesome page” and that this link is not rel=nofollow.

Both expectedLinkHref and expectedLinkText supports wildcards.

Example:=CheckBacklink(“”, “http://*”,”Suggestion*”,TRUE)

  1. Hi,

    Is it possible to check a domain instead an url?

    i test something like this :
    “=CheckBacklink(“”,”*”,”An awesome page”,FALSE)

    but this doesn’t work.

    Thank you and congrats for your amazing tool.
