    Anyone know about to hide your backlinks so that competitor would not be able to see to spy it such as ahrefs or any tools !?

    I don't know how to hide links but believe me spying on competitors link is not helpful. So, I don't think that your competitor will be interested on the list of sites your site is linking to. Come on it's 2017 already you need to improve your technique. Focus on your target audience.

    @agarwalpiyush116 sure, you can block the crawlers of all the top backlink research tools. There are also WP plugins for this, I remember SpiderSpanker I don't know if it's active, however there are other plugins as well. You can do it manually by editing robots.txt and htacces (or the other alternative depends on the server software), googel it.

    Kindly please read carefully, he is talking about backlinks, not website. No one can hide backlinks through this trick. It's just to stop crawling specific area on your site.

    There are a few ways to do this, and it all depends on the type of link going back to your site. If the link is on your personal network then you are going to want to make sure that the tools don’t find the entire website. In this scenario you will own the website that is linking back to you, so you have control over the robots.txt file. This is the file that bots check before they crawl a website in order to see if they are allowed on it. While most guides out there will give you a list of bots to disallow, you will never get them all. For this reason I choose to disallow them all, only letting the good bots in

    By the way, if you use the plugin to block bots who monitor backlinks, don't you block the Google's bot too?

Here is what you put in a robots.txt file:

    User-Agent: *
    Disallow: /
    User-Agent: Googlebot
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: Googlebot-Mobile
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: Googlebot-Image
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: Mediapartners-Google
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: Adsbot-Google
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: Slurp
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: msnbot
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: msnbot-media
    Allow: /
    User-Agent: Teoma
    Allow: /


    Have fun!

    Back links are very important aspect for ranking after the quality content. When a marketer has a decent post, then there is a chance to capture the competetor's back link.
