How to monitor your SEO backlinks to get alerts when publishers tampers with links

Backlinks are still an important factor in your online marketing strategy for your website to rank well in Google and gain organic traffic. But it can be a painfully long and expensive process to earn or negotiate with publishers and get backlinks or mentions to your website. 

To make matters worse, you can lose backlinks in the blink of an eye, whether because the page linking to you got deleted or when publishers edit their articles changing the link attribute or removing it altogether after the fact.
