BLEXbot is a white-hat web crawler whose purpose is to find and index backlinks.
BLEXbot has been developed by WebMeUp team to build up the most comprehensive and up-to-date backlink database. It lets Internet marketers and SEOs build up and control their external and internal link profiles as well as to keep track and get rid of harmful or unwanted backlinks.
The database collected by BLEXBot is used to power WebMeUp SEO tool and WebMeUp Backlink tool. The latter is currently open to the public on a free basis. Everybody is welcome to take advantage of this rich resource and upload backlinks for any number of sites (up to 1 million results per site!).
Just like bots developed by Google, Bing and other search engines, BLEXbot is a fully legitimate web crawler. It strictly obeys robots.txt instructions and always identifies itself by the name and domain. Here’s the user agent is uses:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; BLEXBot/1.0; +http://webmeup-crawler.com/)
Unlike search engine bots, BLEXBot doesn’t index any content from webpages except for links. The tool collects data gradually, making three-second pauses before opening another link. So the websites it visits can function normally during the crawls.
