Recover Link Juice and Trust from Your Links

Our new release offers a brand-new tool – the Link Juice Recovery Tool that finds back links to dead pages on your domain and let’s you fix them in minutes. In addition to that we have an improved report preview and some more goodies.

Link Juice Recovery Tool

The Link Juice Recovery Tool (LJR) makes it possible to detect dead pages with backlinks on your domain. Just type in your domain and run a report. In the results table you get a list of the error pages and the number of backlinks they have. A link to an error page (e.g. 404 error) is a loss in Link Juice for your website and you can keep that juice if you redirect them to other pages on your domain or create a new page in their place!

In the video below Christoph C. Cemper explains the Link Juice Recovery method for you

In the following example you can easily see how Nike could regain a lot of link juice from links they earned but obviously didn’t care about in structural site changes (speak “relaunches”) in the past. That’s actually very common for large corporations as they often don’t care about SEO at all as discussed in a previous CEMPER SEO Q&A post here.

So with the Link Juice Recovery Tool you can check old domains you haven’t looked at for a while or an (expired) domain you plan to buy. The results of the LJR reports will help you to refresh the domain by implementing proper redirects and improve traffic and search engine rankings.

Just imagine for a second that one of the first pages you built on a domain has earned 100 backlinks long ago and for some reason you took that page down. All the backlinks direct the user and especially the search engines to an error page which means that all those links won’t count toward better rankings. You will leave potential cheap traffic and links (you already have them!) underutilized.

Implementing those redirects isn’t rocket science, but some tedious work if done by hand.

That’s where our .htaccess Generator comes in to help you redirect all the dead pages to the start page of your website – in one step! Just copy the code into your .htaccess file in your Apache web server and you won’t lose any Link Juice anymore. For other web servers similar methods can be implemented, but everyone uses Apache anyway, right?

In the screenshot below you see that the Nike SEO would just need a couple minutes of work to capture page rank and trust from links Nike has earned in the past.

Better report overview

The report preview function has been improved to provide the actual data of the report quicker than ever, so you can start with the analysis of your reports a lot earlier. We found in our everyday use that very often already 10-20 % are ready within a couple seconds which are sufficient to keep yourself busy while our crawlers finish their job. Of course if you think you got enough data for a report, you can still terminate it to get your other reports to finish faster.

of link juice to recover on your sites!

PS: of course all the other great ways to optimize your site like getting links on the strongest pages or
link profiling your competitors or simply understanding your own backlink and anchor text distribution are things we wish you good luck as well, but those are methods and tools you probably already benefit from!
