The All Things Links Charity Conference in Vienna.

There's enough talk and tools about fixing your site, getting it to load fast, improving your content and install that SSL cert.

Mainstream conferences transformed into a big echo chamber for Google's propaganda.

SEO Software providers focus more and more on trying to replace great copywriters with software for poor writers.

"Who writes good, ranks good," they say. And many journalists, agency bosses and people in the conference business buy it.

Tons of "SEO Crawler" software products jumped on the train and even promised "linkless ranking" for highly competitive niches.

If you are still laughing about those "examples" and want to exchange with like-minded, then LRTcon is for you.

 Link Building is hard. It has always been.

Link Audit and Link Building on top of a clean profile even more.

However, YOU are NOT one of those trying to sweep them under the carpet to have your "corporate peace."

Link Mindset

Action starts with the right mindset. If you’re a "content marketing guy" or a "technical SEO" fixing redirects all day, then this is not for you. We need you in the correct head-space from the start.

If you think "influencing the search results" happens only by fixing your website, or publishing this excellent masterpiece article that your team worked on for weeks, then this conference is not for you.

Link Hands-On instead of Bullet Points.

No high-flying jibber jabber. This conference focuses on examples, case studies, site clinics, link clinics and everything else we have been missing on the "big" conferences for years.

We'll look at stuff in LRT obviously - and we'll do the same with any other tool that you bring, have a license with or is licensed through us.



Actually Useful Link Building Networking

All active LRT Certified Professional get a special invitation by Christoph C. Cemper,and this means you'll get with many people that have gone through extensive 2-day training.

Or more.

We'll not exchange our Facebook accounts only. We exchange link lists, vendors, experiences, prices.

The view from our location is awesome.

  • “LinkResearchTools has been an incredibly important tool at Geek Powered Studios since 2013. So much so, we’ve started making it a requirement, at around month 3-6, for employees to become certified. It’s incredibly useful for learning how to better use the tool and become a better digital-marketer / link builder!

    Director of SEO at Geek Powered Studios

  • “Always a pleasure to meet you and see you in action. I got tons of inputs for you my friend. Again.

    People are always contacting me after those trainings to ask about better ways to use the product in their own specific vertical. I just realized that upon completing the 2 days, people don’t really understand the real power of LRT.”

    The guy that came the third time to my workshop

  • “A huge part of SEO success is your backlink portfolio.

    Not only do you need to understand where your links are coming from, you need to be able to take action to manage those links. LinkResearchTools is an indispensable collection of powerful tools to do just that. I’m a long-time customer of LinkResearchTools and highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about crushing it with links.”
