How To extract All The Links On a Webpage And Export Them?

Ever wondered if you could get a simple list of all links on a certain page? Well you can. With just some simple tools you can make your digital marketing and SEO work much more simple.

In today's post I give you two methods that you can use to quickly create a list of all links on a page. This does not scrape the whole domain. Only the one page that you are currency on or that you copied.


Why do you need all the links on a page?


There could be many reasons why you need all the links on a page. Maybe you have 100s of links and you quickly want to create an overview of all them.

Or you are doing link research and want to know which links have redirects or are broken.

No matter the reason. As a digital marketer you are working with links all day. And you might need just a simple overview of all links on a certain page.




You could also create automations, for example with Make, you could connect and google sheet with Pocket. When you add the extracted links to an excel sheet, the links will automatically be added to your pocket list.

Or you could automatically shorten them using Bitly. The possibilities with automation are endless and depend on what your end goals are.

Method one

use Link Grabber

The best way to do this is using an extension. And in this case I suggest you use Link Grabber. This simple tool quickly generates a list of all Links on a page.

You can filter the links to only get the links you need. For example, you can block certain domains. By default duplicates are hidden, but you can also see them if you need. This saves you a lot of time afterwards sorting out the links.

After this you can copy them to an excel sheet or add them to a Trello board or even add them to your pocket. It depends on your usage.

How to check the status of my extracted links?

Now that you have a list of all the links, you could also check what the status of each link is. Are the links broken or do they have redirects?

To do this I suggest you use the free online tool from httpstatus.io. This tool lets you bulk analyze 100 links at a time. It will then give you a quick overview of the status of each link. 200 (green) meaning no problem. 404 or else might indicate a broken link.

Httpstatus.io also lets your export the results as an excel file!

Method Two

extractor tool from Sitechecker

The Second method uses an online tool, namely the link extractor tool from Sitechecker. This is a great free way to get all links and detailed info.

I'm a big fan of free online tools. And while many of these free versions have limitations to what is possible. They still can be useful because they come with extra options that other tools don't have.

In this case they provide you with extra info, like the Anchor text, which is the clickable text used for the link. And, unlike Link Grabber you get an overview of the status code for each link. This can be useful if you want to know which pages are redirects, broken, etc.

There are many ways to extract links from a website or page. It all depends on what you personally feel is working for you. Personally, I like to create excel sheets and keep track of my research. And that is why I prefer the simple copy paste from Link Grabber. For more deep research I use the tools from Sitechecker.
