Did we mention that all existing customers get these benefits at their existing plan rate as part of their grandfathered rate?


But first, let me tell you about our Launch


Bigger Backlink Audits

Improved link data quality

Improved user interface and overall usability

1. Link Detox Screener faster, more accurate, more detailed

We strongly recommend that you check the links you include in your disavow file. That means you need to have a closer look at the websites you mark with “Disavow.”  Using the Link Detox Screener tool from inside Link Detox, you can quickly review website after website while looking at important link data about a specific page.

1.1 Highlight Links

Now you can quickly spot all the links on the pages you’re browsing. We’re highlighting all of them for you. More than that, you can see the HTML code for each link and quickly spot No Follow or hidden links.


By using the up and down arrows on your keyboard, you can jump from one highlighted link to your domain to another.

  • ▲= Previous Link on Page
  • ▼ = Next Link on Page

1.2 Faster Loading/Caching

We have some more good news. Thanks to the new caching technology that we implemented, the websites will now load much faster inside your Link Detox Screener. If a website takes more time to load, you will see our spinning dots, showing that it’s loading. It may be that the website is down or has some technical issues when we’re making the display request. That’s something that we have no control on.

link detox screener loading wait

If we encounter an issue when loading a website, we will display a relevant error for you.

1.3 Show all links and keywords for a page

Your work will go much faster if you use the hotkeys in the Link Detox Screener.

We added the L Hotkey for the new “show all links on the page” feature. Hitting this hotkey will display a list of all the links on the page to your domain, including:

  • the anchor text - for you to quickly spot if it’s a money keyword and
  • link status - for you to see at a glance all the Follow and No Follow links


By using the up and down arrows on your keyboard, you can jump from one highlighted link to your domain to another.

  • ▲= Previous Link on Page
  • ▼ = Next Link on Page

Here is the updated Link Detox Screener Hotkey list:


  • A = Disavow Whole Domain (“A for ALL here is spam”)
  • D = Disavow Individual Link
  • W = Clear Disavow (“W for Wipe this Page of my Disavow File”)
  • S = Skip Sitewide Linking Pages
  • C = Add comment to Disavow File
  • G = Rate Link as good
  • B = Rate Link as bad
  • J = Jump to Page
  • L = Show all Links on the Page
  • ⏴ = Previous Page
  • ⏵ = Next Page
  • ▲ = Previous Link on Page
  • ▼ = Next Link on Page

If you’re using Link Detox (DTOX), but never worked with the Link Detox Screener, it’s a great time to start. We worked on improving it, and many SEOs already consider it a time-saver for their link audit work.

1.4 Trusted SEO metrics at your fingertips

You can save a lot of time and have an overview of the:


2. Link Status

3. Anchor Text

4. Link Detox Rules

5. LRT Power*Trust for page and domain


2. Increased backlink profile size coverage

We now estimate the potential backlink size much better and include data from yet another external data source we didn’t include in the past. In some cases, this means you can now audit 3x, 10x or even 20x bigger backlink profiles.

Should we really audit all the backlinks? (Webmaster with millions of Backlinks)

2.1 Don't just look at one slice of your backlink profile

Only looking at a part of your backlink profile is not a top-level approach. Don’t use this approach for your website and don’t use it for your customers.

backlink audits slice


Because all your backlinks are important. Even the old ones. Analyzing only a part of your domain is like doing a health check only for half of your body. Think of all the negative SEO out there.


Think of all the old, spammy links you never disavowed. They are still part of your backlink profile, hurting your rankings and ready to trigger a Google Penalty any time.


2.2 Superhero and Agency plans get 20% more free of charge!

All existing clients that have a “Superhero” or “Agency” plan get their limits bumped up by 20%.

This means 600k links maximum domain audit size for Superhero and 6 million links for the Agency plans.

By our improvements in 2017, you often can get 2x 3x or even 20x more backlink data in your audit. We do that by including data from yet another commercial external data source. This way, you can now perform that backlink audit on a much bigger picture and cleanup up links you may have been missing before.

This increases the value of your existing Superhero or Agency plan massively. The extra 20% in your plans mean an extra 100k for the Superhero and an extra 1M (yes, MILLION) for the Agency plan.

Superhero Plan LinkResearchTools

Of course, we still recommend that you upload and connect all the link data sources possible to get as many data as you can.

But don’t worry about the new price for the Superhero you see on our page. If you already secured your Superhero plan in the past, you will get all those extra links at NO COST, thanks to our Price Grandfathering Privilege our customers enjoy.


2.3 Backlink Profile Audit Size Warning

…so you can now do much better in analyzing bigger backlink profiles.

Google takes all your backlinks into consideration. No matter if they are new or old. If you decide on a Backlink Audit software that is not suitable for your domain, this can get your website in trouble.

Because our link data got so much richer, for some domains your existing plan might not be a good fit, despite the 20% upgrade we gave you.

You can see in your Link Detox (DTOX) reports, how big your domain REALLY is based on our today’s capabilties. Make sure to get the most complete picture of your backlink profile.

For all past Link Detox reports, we also give you an estimation of how big the possible link profile is now. We make an estimation for links as well as for referring root domains.

In the two pie charts you see how big or small the previous Link Detox report was in terms of backlinks and referring domain.


In blue: the links / referring root domains you audited. In orange: the links / referring root domains you didn't audit.

Go ahead and click that Re-Run button if you see this message! You will be amazed by how many links we can find now.

By re-running you make you can utilize the full power of the improved LinkResearchTools (LRT).

With LinkResearchTools you can rock the search engines

Don't leave your rankings to chance!

Analyze not just a fraction of your

Backlink profile but as many Backlinks as possible.

Become a better SEO and rock the search engines.
