The new “a4uexpo Version” of the Link Research Tools offers fully automated support for graphical link profiling, new SEO metrics for Domain and Page authority, even faster load speed and improved search and filter functions for the results. The usability improvements will make data analysis a lot easier for you and you will save some precious time.
The “link profiling” feature does build a profile (a link histogram of the listed links by one value) just as Pete recently wrote on SEOmoz for the single authority value. The benefit here is that our tool it’s many analysis values built in and fully automated. So it’s not just one backlink profile, it works for many different types of SEO values to look at. For example you can get the profiles by Yahoo Backlinks, Majestic ACrank, Google Page Rank, Page or Domain Authority or the SEOmoz Mozrank.
A link profile shows how many of the backlinks have a certain value, e.g. how many links have an AC Rank of 1 or 2. As you can see in the example picture above, the majority of backlinks (940) have an AC Rank of 3.
The above screenshot shows the link profile by Page Authority (MozAuthPage). You can see that most of the analyzed backlinks have a Page Authority between 0 and 10. Only a few have a MozAuthPage that is above 40.
In the screenshot for the MozAuthDom link profile the majority of backlinks have a Domain Authority of about 50. 322 backlinks come from domains with an authority value of about 90 so the input URLs gets a good amount of links from trusted domains.
Until now you had to export all the data as .csv file and analyze it in an excel sheet. Now you can see the link profiles right in the report results and you save a lot of time.
No need for tedious excel copy/paste work anymore!
Stay tuned, we will post more examples and tips how to use link profiles tomorrow.
A search function was added to the report details table. Now you can search for phrases in URLs. In BLP (formerly BATT) reports you can also search the anchor texts. Just type in a phrase in the URLs line above the details table and the URLs containing the phrase will be automatically searched and shown. If you want to go back to the initial settings, just click the “clear” button.
Click-On-a-Link Search with linked tables
A search function can also be found in other report tables, e.g. the Anchor Text Breakdown or the Follow/Nofollow tables. Just click on a line in a table, e.g. the “News & Aktuelles” line in the Anchor Text table in a BLP (formerly BATT) report (see example at the left).
Then the report details table will only show all anchor texts that include “News & Aktuelles”. This new feature will help to save time and enhance the analysis of the provided data.
SEOmoz SEO metrics Package
The new SEOmoz SEO metric package includes MozRank for domains (MozRankDom) and the SEOmoz Backlinks (Moz!BL). Additionally, the package includes the SEOmoz Page Authority and SEOmoz Domain Authority. The MozRankDom is a metric comparable with the Google PR and it is a useful source for comparison with the manipulated Google PR (TBPR). The SEOMoz Page and Domain Authority are measures for the “authority” of a page and show you if a site is trusted.
Link Status “Mention”
In the BLP (formerly BATT) reports a new Link Status is shown, namely “Mention”. So far we only showed if a link is “Follow” or “Nofollow”. On many websites there are URLs posted that are just plain text (not hyperlinked). Now these URLs are also shown in the Follow/Nofollow pie chart and table as “Mention”. This feature is an useful addition to the BLP that adds a new dimension to the backlinks profiles we provide.
Improved report load speed
The graphics used for the illustration of the report results are not flash anymore. This helps to reduce the load time of the report details page and reports can now also be accessed via the iPhone.
