In our Colinkri Review, we would try to explain can Colinkri get your links indexed and do it really work?
Our content development & placement team has been in search of the perfect backlink indexing tool for quite some time. In our quest, we have tried the following tools:
The recent of the casualties we had was with Colinkri. Part of it has to deal with our understanding of the tool but the other part was definitely deceptive marketing practices in part of Colinkri.

User Interface and Dashboard
We liked the user interface and dashboard of Colinkri. As expected, it was easier to navigate, decluttered and the required information was laid out nicely.
You can navigate to the “Campaigns” tab to set up a new campaign and submit links to it. The “settings” tab was just an API key that you can integrate with your in-house systems to submit links automatically.
How to use Colinkri?
To submit your links, you have to go to the “Campaigns” tab from the dashboard. The user interface would show you a list of all of your existing campaigns alongside their respective status. To submit a new campaign, simply press the “New” button on the right-hand side of the window.
Once you hit the “New” button, you would be shown a new campaign creation window. Here is a step by step guide on how to set up the campaign:
- Enter a unique name for your new campaign
- Specify the drip feed days. We would advise keeping it to 1-2 days for quick results. On instances were we set it to 3 days or longer, the action only started happening on the last or second last day. So better keep it to 2 days.
- Next you have to enter your links. If you have a TXT file, you can upload links in bulk using the file upload method. The other way is to manually enter the URLs, one per each line
- Once done, just hit the submit button and wait for Colinkri to do its part (disappointment in our case).
Our Experience with Colinkri
If I have to sum it up in one word: “Disappointing”. We created three campaigns with a gap of 2 days between each. The first campaign had 4 links, the second one with 12 links and the third had two links. We were not able to get even a single link indexed. It’s funny how the urge and desperation to find a solution makes you believe in solutions that never work. Anyhow, down and dusted we decided to raise the issue with their customer support team. Their response came as a surprise! Here is what they had to say about this:
Colinkri is NOT an indexer. How do you expect for your links to get index since you are not using an indexer? Colinkri is a Google Crawler. It forces Google bots to discover and Crawl your links. Please visit our websiye to learn more about what Colinkri is and what it does. Kind Regards, Colinkri Team
They have explicitly and very clearly stated that Colinkri is not an indexer. To add salt to the injury, they went a step beyond their mandate and claimed it to be a Google Crawler! A GOOGLE CRAWLER! let that sink. The next sentence is even funnier: “It forces Google bots to discover and crawl your links”. So on the surface, they have created something so amazing and powerful that it can even FORCE Google to do things. How about you make Google mow my lawn?
The Verdict: Does Colinkri actually work or is it a scam?
No. Colinkri does not work at all if you take it as a link indexer. To put in the best words, this is a classic example of deceptive marketing and concealed agenda-driven copywriting that forces you to believe it might get your links indexed. However, this is definitely not the case.
To understand the complete picture here, you have to understand the difference between indexing and crawling. Crawling is a process whereby a crawler, that can either be a search engine crawler any other simply crawls through your web pages and links. And that is the end of the story. The crawler does nothing else.
Indexing, on the other hand, is the process whereby a crawler first crawls through the web pages and the links and then indexes them. So this actually gets you some results that are more aligned with your expectations.
In the above explained scheme of things, Colinkri is a crawler. It is NOT an indexer. So it would not get your links indexed at all.
