Almost 50 other crucial factors for in-depth link quality check!

And SEO SpyGlass gives you much more!

We're constantly adding to SEO SpyGlass new backlink SEO factors that help you analyze the quality of each backlink. Look though the check-list, to make sure you use each of them to direct your link building in the best direction:

1. Backlink info

  • Backlink Page — the URL (exact web address) of the page on which the backlink is placed.
  • Title — the title of the backlink page. Browse through the page titles to find the ones that contain your keywords. Links from the ones that do are likely to carry more SEO value.
  • Links Back — this column tells you whether the backlink a) exists and b) works.
  • a. The link has been removed but still shows up in search engine's backlink list because the list has not been updated yet. In this case the value in this column is "No".
  • b. The link is alive and well but the search engines technically do not follow the link and thus it does not have any SEO value. Note, however, that "Nofollow" links are still good for bringing human visitors/traffic to your site.
  • Anchor Text — the "clickable" text or image in the link
  • Anchor URL — the URL that the backlink points to.
  • Last found date — the last date when you updated your SEO SpyGlass project and the link was found in the search engines' backlink list for your project domain.
  • Backlink status — tells you whether the backlink shows up in search engine backlink lists. Column options are: a) "new" b) "removed" c) "remains".
  • a. the link is "new" if SEO SpyGlass did not find it last time it checked the search engine backlink lists.
  • b. it is "removed" if SEO SpyGlass located the backlink previously but it is no longer available.
  • c. it "remains" if SEO SpyGlass located the backlink previously and it is still operational.

2. Domain analysis

  • Domain — the root name of the website.
  • Domain IP — IP address — website's numeric label; a unique ID number of the computer/server where the website is hosted. Getting backlinks from sites hosted in the same country as yours can play an important role in promoting your site in regional search engines.
  • Domain PR — Google Page Rank for the entire domain (the 'homepage' name).
  • DMOZ Listing — (Open Directory Project) listing — checks whether the website is listed in the DMOZ online directory, which is highly regarded by search engines. The site listed in DMOZ is considered a high-authority website.
  • Yahoo! Dir listing — checks whether the website is listed in the Yahoo! Internet directory. Just like with DMOZ, the listing increases site reputation in the eyes of the search engines.
  • Alexa Rank — the ranking of a website based on the volume of traffic it's getting, as measured by Alexa.com. The smaller the Alexa Rank figure, the "better" the website.
  • Domain Age — indicates how long ago the domain was registered (search engines have much more confidence in older domains, hence backlinks from older domains usually lead to higher rankings).
  • Country — the country where the backlink domain is hosted.
  • Contact info — list of the email addresses you can use to contact the webmaster of the backlink domain.
  • Compete rank — site's traffic ranking metric similar to Alexa. Measured by Compete.com. As with Alexa, the lower Compete rank, the better.
  • Compete traffic — traffic volume based on estimates from Compete.com.
  • Domain Google Popularity — the number of incoming links to the website that Google search engine presents to the public.
  • Domain Yahoo! Popularity — the number of incoming links to the website that Yahoo! search engine presents to the public.
  • Domain Yandex CY — Theme citation index for the website calculated by the Yandex search engine. The higher the index value, the better.
  • Indexed in Google — number of pages in this domain indexed by Google.
  • Indexed in Yahoo! — number of pages in this domain indexed by Yahoo!
  • Indexed in Bing — number of pages in this domain indexed by Bing.
  • Indexed in Yandex — number of pages in this domain indexed by the Yandex search engine.

3. Backlink Page analysis

  • Page PR — Google PageRank for a backlink page.
  • External Links — number of links on the page pointing from the backlink domain to other domains.
  • Total Links — total number of outgoing links (both internal and external) on the page. The fewer outgoing links, the greater the value of each link coming from the page.
  • Link Value — shows how much PageRank the page may potentially pass with a link. Roughly, the higher PageRank and the fewer outgoing links, the higher the link value.
  • Last found date — The last date when you updated your SEO SpyGlass project and the link was found in the search engines' backlink list for your project domain.
  • Backlink status — tells you whether the backlink shows up in search engine backlink lists. Column options are: a) "new" b) "removed" c) "remains".
  • a. the link is "new" if SEO SpyGlass did not find it last time it checked the search engine backlink lists.
  • b. it is "removed" if SEO SpyGlass located the backlink previously but it is no longer available.
  • c. it "remains" if SEO SpyGlass located the backlink previously and it is still operational.
  • Cache Date in Google — the date when Google cached (= temporarily stored the indexed copy "as is") the backlink page.
  • Cache Date in Yahoo! — the date when Yahoo! cached (= temporarily stored the indexed copy "as is") the backlink page.
  • Cache Date in Bing — the date when Bing cached (= temporarily stored the indexed copy "as is") the backlink page.
  • Page Google Popularity — the number of incoming links to the page/URL that Google search engine presents to the public.
  • Page Yahoo! Popularity — the number of incoming links to the page/URL that Yahoo! search engine presents to the public.
