Here’s a harsh reality:
Link building has never been harder.
Google has killed tons of tactics over the years, and sites don’t link out as freely and often as they used to.
And yet, links remain the most important ranking factor.
Whether you love link building or hate it, there’s no way around it: you need links to rank.
But the last thing the world needs is another link building tool, right?
Why we built another link building tool
With all the SEO tools out there, you’d think there’d be one for every tactic.
But there’s not.
There’s one completely under-utilized tactic that gets high-authority links, and there’s not a single good tool to help SEOs with it.
A simple way to get authority links
If you publish graphics or photographs on your site, other sites have copied your images.
And more often than not, they’ve done so without including attribution, and therein lies the simple and effective link building tactic you’ve been waiting for.
If you can find the sites that copied your images, you can reach out and request they link to the original source. Most sites will link immediately to correct their mistake.
And what do you get? Loads of editorial backlinks.
But if this tactic is so simple and effective, it bears asking, why isn’t everyone using it? And why aren’t YOU using it?
Because finding these sites takes forever.
So far, the only way to find these sites is to use Google’s reverse image search. This works fine but requires you to manually search your images one at a time and click through all the results.
It’s a tedious and wasteful process that can be easily automated with the right tool.
And that’s why we built Image Prospector.
Introducing, Image Prospector
Image Prospector is the first reverse image search tool built for SEOs. It’s powered by Google’s Image Search API, so you get the same results, without the tedious manual searching.
With Image Prospector, you can upload all your images and get a sorted table of every site that’s copied them.
Then you can use one of our pre-written outreach scripts to reach out to these sites and request your links.
From then on, your images will be checked every month, so you can get fresh prospects and new backlinks, month after month.
