By using our websites you agree to the following terms and conditions:
The evaluations, results, views and analysis expressed by LinkResearchTools GmbH on the websites LinkDetox.com, LinkResearchTools.com and LinkResearchTools.de are personal opinions of several internal and external SEO experts.
We do not pretend to have access to Google‘s algorithms and evaluation methods as they are not published and not accessible to any third parties. We use material published by Google, but draw our personal conclusions from our long experience in Search Engine Optimization, feedback from clients, observations from thousands of reports created and ongoing testing and configuration of our systems according to our best effort and knowledge.
The algorithms Link Detox Genesis® and the Link Detox Risk (DTOXRISK® and Domain DTOXRISK® are based on our research, experiences and personal estimations. The algorithms and the reports created by the programs LinkDetox® and LinkResearchTools® do not reflect the official policy or position of Google or other Search Engine operators.
The automated reports created by LinkDetox® and LinkResearchTools® are therefore also derived from personal opinions and conclusions based on experience, monitoring of the link graph derived from various link data sources, SEO metrics providers and thousands of users giving us their personal opinion about the quality of links and deductions we make from the correlation of those signals.
The labels given to links and websites, such as “High DTOXRISK®” are merely instructive and introduced for the sake of usability of the program and not to be taken literally.
SEO is not an exact science and we can therefore only give you opinions and recommendations. We ask you to critically review and double check the automated results, using your personal experience and direct viewing of the nature and content of websites that are shown as potentially harmful for your backlink profile and website. The links evaluated by the program as harmful do not always affect your search engine ranking.
Our evaluation of links is not a verdict on the content of the sites, but a specific and subjective estimation of their potential influence on search engine ranking.
If a website is evaluated using the domain wide Link Detox Risk (Domain DTOXRISK®), then no content of that website is evaluated. The result represents an estimation of the probability that that website could experience a loss in traffic due to penalization because of a violation of official or unofficial Google guidelines.
If the average Link Detox Risk (Domain DTOXRISK®) for a domain is very high, that does not mean that links being placed on that website to your website also pose a risk for you.
The impact on NOFOLLOW links on search engine rankings and penalties is discussed controversially. Google published that such links would be completely ignored. We believe that NOFOLLOW links can under certain circumstances still be harmful to search engine rankings and result in manual penalties, because Google generally tries to identify spamming intents. We regularly hear from clients that their penalty was only lifted after they investigated and removed large quantities of NOFOLLOW links. From this we conclude that Google in certain cases tries to identify intents of spamming even if NOFOLLOW links are used.
We therefore explicitly give you two possibilities to run our software
- Ignoring NOFOLLOW links - which will mean assigning a zero DTOXRISK® score to all links in our software.
- Activating the NOFOLLOW evaluation - which will result in calculation of DTOXRISK® score for NOFOLLOW links – albeit with a different risk scoring in the algorithms of Link Detox® than for FOLLOW links.
The results of Method 2 (“Evaluate NOFOLLOW”) are alternative evaluations of DTOXRISK® for all links including NOFOLLOW links, based on the assumption that NOFOLLOW links should be evaluated as well, although with a different calculation of risk scores.
