Link Filters and Link Slices

The time has come for another LRT update. We’ve just released the first version of code name “Community Update”. We received so much great feedback that we decided to dedicate this update especially to our clients. This one is for all our clients who constantly support us in improving our product. Again, we’d like to say thank you for contributing to the success and ongoing development of LinkResearchTools. Besides the improved TitleRank™ metric for your Penguin-first-aid kit, the latest version includes an extensive update to the existing filtering functions, many other new features, and will further boost your analyses within the toolkit.

Report Slice Feature

Would you like to analyze a certain aspect of your reports, or do you want to analyze all your “bad links” in a separate report?

Well then, our newest Report Slice feature will fit your needs perfectly. Save certain sections or pre-selected data areas of your reports in a separate (partial) report and analyze them individually.

new report slices

Save certain sections and analyze them individually

In addition, each new report delivers 2 predefined slices, which automatically selects your “bad” and “good” links, and saves them in a separate slice.

predefined slices support your analysis

2 predefined slices automatically select your bad and good links

Take advantage of a more detailed analysis of your selected data. Create as many slices as you want – without any extra credits.

This functions is now available for all Superhero and Enterprise customers.

Improved Link profiles

The improved link profiles allow our Superheroes to increase their analysis with the Backlink Profiler and Competitive Landscape Analyzer. Compare the absolute and average numbers, and filter these results with all available links.

increase your analysis at the Competitive Landscape Analyzer

Compare the absolute and average numbers at your Competitive Landscape Analyzer report

This allows you to form a better conclusion from your selected filters that are close to the overall link profile. Combine the improved link profiles with the new report slice feature and analyze only a specific subset of your link profile.

LRT Power*Trust™ Slice

LRT Power*Trust™ metric evaluates the REAL value of your links

The filters can be selected by mouse click, and (as usual) exported and compiled in a comprehensive report.

TitleRank™ metric package increased

Due to the high volume of feedback received from our users, we’ve created an additional metric – the TitleRank™ of a homepage. This metric was developed to better evaluate the value of a URL in Google. By evaluating the ranking of the URL, you can directly imply its quality in the search results.

TitleRank™ for homepage

new TitleRank™-home evaluates the value of the linking homepage

This update enhances your “Penguin-first-aid kit” with two additional unique metrics:

  • TitleRank™-home – Determines the position of the linking homepage’s title in Google’s search results
  • Title-home – Extracts the page title of the linking homepage

Should neither the title of the page nor the title of the homepage be shown in the top 30 results, we strongly recommend removing your links (because that URL was probably punished).

These new metrics are now available for all Superhero and Enterprise customers.

Strongest Subpages Tool improved

As announced in our previous TitleRank™ post, we’ve reworked our Strongest Subpages Tool and enriched it with our brand new LRT Power*Trust™ metric.

LRT Power*Trust™ at SSPT

LRT Power*Trust™ calculates the strength of your subpages

To increase the reliability and quality of the results of our metric, we decided to replace the previous strength calculation with the latest metrics directly off the CEMPER forge.

LRT Power*Trust™ for subfolder

Have you already analyzed your strongest subfolders?

The improved Strongest Subpages Tool is still available for all Expert, Superhero and Enterprise customers.

URL Boost for API

To increase the number of only 2,000 URLs per call, we’ve added another URL boost to our API, which allows all Superhero and Enterprise customers to query up to 10,000 URLs per API call. This parameter needs to be defined before you run your query. For more information, please check out our API help page.

Top-500 Power*Trust™ List extended

We’ve added 4 extra lists which can be downloaded twice a month. Available immediately.

    What i would recommend is to get a PDF manual for those much features. In my eyes i need a manual with detailed descriptions instead of those blog pages. I love your tool 100% but i need more explanations!

    • Christoph on August 7, 2012 at 5:17 pm

      HI Andre,
      thanks for your feedback – we once had a manual for the first 5 or so tools – but we’re programming new features faster than tech writers can follow up :) two more tools til September coming up.
      But I’ll see what I can do.

      • Joe Lewis on January 3, 2013 at 6:26 pm

        I have to agree that while your tools are very useful and nice to use, especially for new business, there is a real need for you to explain your internal jargon. I’m a serious SEO professional and I get confused…

        • Christoph on January 4, 2013 at 1:39 pm

          Hi Joe,

          thanks for your feedback and sorry for all the confusion. We really have a complex set of features that we know we have to better document. Have you watched the webinars at http://www.linkresearchtools.com/webinars/ and the Helppage at http://www.linkresearchtools.com/helptext/ ?

          For any questions and issues, please contact our helpdesk and we’ll gladly help you out!

          All the best, Christoph
