Ok, so we all know many of the link analysis tools out there. They give you an idea of who's linking to whom and help you to understand why your competitor ranks better than you.
Unfortunately, all the current link analysis tools have to rely on the limited amount of data provided by the big search engines like Google
. The reports from these tools often do not show the full picture.
, from the creator of the Majestic12 search engine
, which has recently gone into public beta.
MajesticSEO maintains their own index of the world wide web, currently tracking 130 billion unique urls
with approximately 1 trillion mapping relations
. Their proprietary software was developed from scratch using the C#/.NET platform and they run on only a few servers, powered by Gigaserver
With MajesticSEO you can get the most detailed link analysis reports I've ever seen:General information
The general information includes various statistics about your site. E.g. the number of total backlinks, the number of unique anchor texts and the number of unique referring domains.Top pages/links
This report shows the number of backlinks for every page on your site. For each page you can see the external pages linking to it, the anchor text
it uses and the type of link found (redirect, frame, nofollow, image, ...).Top Anchors
A list of distinct anchor texts used to link to your site. Click one of the items from the list takes you to a report of all external pages which use this anchor text to link to you.Top referring domains
A report of all external links to your site, grouped by domain name.
MajesticSEO also dislays an "ACRank". ACRank stands for A Citation Rank
. It is a relative measure of a web page importance that depends on the number and quality of links pointing to it. It is measured from 0 to 15, the higher the better.
ACRank is very similar to Google's PageRank
Unfortunately, MajesticSEO currently does not allow you to view reports from your competitors; you need to register an account and verify that a domain belongs to you before it shows you the reports.
It is expected that this functionality will only be available for premium account holders paying a subscription fee.
IMHO, MajesticSEO is a superb tool to get more insight into your site's SEO
