Check your competitors’ domainsHidden PBN backlinks are clustered into highly competitive niches and Black Hat SEO competitors. Hidden PBN backlinks can’t be found by common backlink checkers because their crawlers are being deceived by crawler-specific cloaking. Linxact detects this and enables you to check your competitors’ domains for hidden PBN backlinks.
Detect negative SEO on any domainNegative SEO attacks with toxic backlinks from hiding PBNs are hard to detect, as those backlinks can only be found through the Google Search Console (GSC) in a pool of ordinary backlinks. With Linxact, you’ll be able to specifically see the hidden PBN backlink profile and detect negative SEO attacks on any domain with ease.
Check the domains you want to buyA domain of your interest might look clean on the ordinary backlink profile, but toxic on the hidden PBN backlink profile that common backlink checkers can’t show. Check the domains you want to buy with Linxact to protect yourself from buying abused expired and auction domains.

Black Hat SEO made transparent.
Linxact is a product of my passion for SEO and my work as an SEO consultant. At Linxact we want to make Black Hat SEO transparent. Thus far, SEO tools have been developed to solve issues and satisfy needs related to White Hat SEO while the usage of Black Hat SEO methods such as Private Blog Networks (PBNs) has exploded in recent years. This has produced a large transparency gap in the competitive SEO analysis of affected niches. Our dedicated and passionate team at Linxact is working relentlessly to fill this gap.
