How to check donor links for server response codes
What are the link donors
The verification of site donors is necessary to avoid buying external links on low-quality resources. Such investment doesn't at least accelerate the SEO-promotion of the acceptor. It may even threaten him with sanctions from search engines.
As a result, a mass verification of response codes is of particular importance when placing links. Donors must have the correct code to successfully pass the scan and send the link weight. If you don't check the response codes from time to time, then you'll get a situation where the budget was spent on links, but there was no result. It also puts the site at risk of being sanctioned.
In this article, we'll look at how to check donor response codes.
How to upload donor links
To check all link donors, you need to upload them to a separate document. Go to Serpstat under Backlink Analysis → Backlink Dashboard. In the upper field, specify the link to your site for which the external links are checked.
You can check for server response codes with the downloaded links.
To test multiple donors, you can use the extension for Google Chrome — HTTP Header. There are many tools for mass checking of the server response code.
Verification is needed to:
- leave only those donors that might benefit. But it's worth considering that this is not the main factor in determining the quality of a link;
- check the previously purchased link for activity. It has to continue providing the link weight.
