Chart the number of Facebook Likes, Retweets, Stumbles, Reddits and Diggs of any url!

Bing and Google confirmed last year that Tweets and Facebook Likes influence their ranking. But what nobody really knows: How much do they matter? And does Google really use it in Web Search, too?

Take an accountant’s site, for example. Should you focus on getting Retweets? Or take an iPhone-blog. Will Facebook Likes help you rank? The truth is, nobody knows for sure. All ranking signals have different importance in different topics.

With the Link Research Tools, you can find out what’s important for your site.

Link Profile by Facebook Likes: mashable.com vs. venturebeat.com

Pages that link to mashable.com tend to do well in the social media community. There are a considerable number of links to mashable.com with more than 1000 Facebook Likes, which is really strong. The number of pages with no Likes is a surprising less than 20%.
A hand-by-hand-review of these well-liked and not-so-well-liked pages could be useful to find out in how far their contents differ and how the Link Profile can be improved.

mashable.com has a very balanced but solid Link Profile

Website venturebeat.com is not doing as well as mashable but still outstandingly good.

venturebeat.com has a noticably high amount of Zero-Likes backlinks

Retweets of TechCrunch’s posts!

In the following example we created a JUICE report with 100 posts from TechCrunch to see how well their social media strategy works. As you can see in the Link Profile by Retweets below, TechCrunch posts do very well, which corelates with their strong community of early adopters.
This shows that as Google looks more and more at social votes, the focus of SEO more than ever has to be to building a community, instead of only building links.

Additional AJAX-Filters

Ever wondered how a Link Profile looked if you only looked at FOLLOW-links or ignored dropped links and MENTION-links? Do FOLLOW-links have more Retweets? How does the Link Profile look, if you’re only looking at a specific anchor text? How do you do compared to your competition?

without nofollow and mentions

without mentions and not found links

The Link Profiles filters help you finding out just that, all from your existing reports. By default, we show the Link Profiles the way we always did, but with one mouse click you can dynamically change the data behind them the way you like.
Look at this example of a Link Profile by Retweets for techcrunch.com, filtered by FOLLOW and NOFOLLOW links. MENTIONs and dropped links are ignored in this Link Profile to give you an even more accurate picture of what the Link Profile looks like.

Link Alerts do even more for you!

For those lazy SEOs: If possible, Link Alerts rate your new links automatically.

Link Alerts rates a found backlink up or down based on surrounding conditions. That’s a quite useful thing for good backlinks but a very important one for backlinks. So many once well-ranking pages lost their credibility because their sites were mentioned on “bad neighborhood” pages. How frustrating would it be to invest so much time and effort to actually lower your site-rank?

One thing less to worry about!

Link Profiles

You can now use our Link Profiles, which you might know from other tools like the BLP, for Link Alerts. Now you always have a live up-to-date chart that tells you about the structure of your new links.

    I tried, but couldn’t quite understand… a little too techy for me or it’s getting too late for me. But I think you can sum it up by saying that it is good to get people to like your posts and tweet or retweet your post tweets… is that the gist of it? I’ll have to re-read this tomorrow – but I’ll like it today anyway :)

      Mike, thanks for your feedback! I agree it’s maybe a bit too lengthy or doesn’t scream the solution (b/c there is no ONE solution).

      In general it _could_ mean that if the pages that LINK TO YOU get a lot of retweets or likes, those get stronger.

      The point in the video we launched today for “Cheap Flights” there was not clear indication, that that’s the case.
      see here http://www.linkresearchtools.com/case-studies/twitter-tweerts-facebook-likes-hidden-links-seo-rankings/

      But we have other industries where Retweets/Likes are a lot stronger, like it’s here with Mashable/Techcrunch.

      My point is – THERE IS NO GENERIC SEO RULE – if you haven’t research your industry and your competitors specifically,
      then you assume that whatever you heard is true for your industry and your competitors. And that is wrong.

      Best Christoph

    To be honest I still haven’t noticed the impact on rankings of RT’s and “Likes” to some of my clients. In fact one of them receives quite a few Likes n RT’s per post and this posts don’t even show on real time results. Any ideas why that might be happening?
