Recover surprising amounts of link juice after a website relaunch

The Link Juice Recovery Tool is the perfect tool to use after a website relaunch. It is used to find links that are linking to your site where there is no page. To recover, the link juice, the page can be recreated, or a 301 redirect can be set up to redirect to the most relevant new page.

Recovering link juice after buying an expired domain

If you buy an expired domain, you may have no idea about what backlinks it already has. By using the Link Juice Recovery Tool, you can compile a list of URLs that are already linking to your domain. You could then load these into Link Detox in the ‘What-if’ mode* and see if they are worth keeping. If they are, you should either recreate the page or 301 redirects them to the most relevant new page.

Recovering link juice after a site migration

If a site is moved from one domain to another, the previous good links will need to either be changed or redirected. You could use the Link Juice Recovery Tool to find the pages that have links on the old site and then redirect them to the pages on the new site.

Restore traffic

A webmaster connected the wrong link to you and you cannot reach it any more. If you want to save this traffic, you have to find the link and make the content available on this wrong address or redirect to the correct site.

Help with Inbound links

You have replaced old content and want to continue using the inbound links.


Quick Video Tutorial For the Link Juice Recovery Tool (LJR)



Link Juice Recovery Tool Features

Nothing is more disturbing than when you are surfing the web click on a link, and then get a 404 failure message.

Often this kind of pages also have a couple of backlinks, so it might harm the ranking of the whole domain to lose them.

The Link Juice Recovery Tool is a link reclamation tool created to find these missing pages. So no matter if you bought a new domain and wanted to re-create some Link Juice, or if you moved a domain to a new domain, this tool can help you to cope with this situation.

In the Link Juice Recovery Tool you usually get the failure codes regarding the request not working, e.g. “404 Not Found” or “504 Gateway Timeout”. You can see the http-code in every LJR report for reference so that you are aware what the problem is here.

What are the backlinks I could receive?

The LJR also shows you the individual backlinks which you could re-create. Just hover the mouse over the URL and then click on the “+” to get a detailed list. You can also use the download function (with links).

With this base, you can now decide if it makes sense to re-create the links, either with providing new content on the same page or with a redirect.

The Link Juice Recovery Tool automatically generates a .htaccess file for you

.htaccess is a configuration file for use on web servers running the Apache Web Server software. This file can be used for password protection, but also for other things, like creating redirects. The Link Juice Recovery Tool includes the option to create a basic .htaccess file with 301 redirects. What is a 301 redirect? 301 means “moved permanently”.

While the file gets generated automatically for a redirection to the homepage, please make sure that you redirect to a deep page, because redirects to the homepage count as a soft-404 and do not pass Link Juice. Make sure that you find a relevant deep page with the same or a similar topic for the redirect.

Frequently Asked Questions About Link Detox

If I buy an expired domain, what can I find out about it by using LJR?


You will be able to find links to pages, folders and subdomains that don’t exist anymore.

If I use LJR as one of my link building strategies, how can I be sure that the links are any good?


If you find a lot of links, you can check them by using Link Detox (DTOX) in the Link Opportunity Audit mode. If you have a smaller amount or need the results quickly, you can use the Link Opportunities Review Tool (LORT). Both of these methods can show how powerful these links are as well as their Link Detox Risk (DTOXRISK) so that you can avoid any SEO penalties.
