Link Prospector

If a stellar piece of content falls in the forest, and no one sees it, does it still make an impact? Probably not.

That’s why we built the Prospector.

Our in-house automatic prospector was designed to help link builders and content marketers find and organize new outreach opportunities, to give their content the relevant amplification it needs to earn links and shares.

WiepKnol It is one of those tools that’s very good at a single task: finding link targets. Usually, this can be *very* time consuming, so getting a list of 2.000+ prospects for a measly $2 (or even less) sounds like a wonderful deal to me.
