Get the Innovation for Your Online Business

The Reason we are nominated two times in a row is our constant improvement

Even though we already won the 2016 SEMY Award for the "Best Special SEO Tool", we didn't rest on our laurels. Constant improvement and development are one of our main goals to always give our customers the best user experience. You can find out here what we already achieved since the beginning of the year.

Links are still one of the TOP Ranking factors for search engines

Finally, people are starting to talk about links again!

It was about time because Google confirmed that links are one of the Top Ranking factors. So why wouldn't you use them?

Google said, just good content won't do the trick. If you want to push your rankings, you need links.

But "The more, the better" doesn't apply when it comes to links. You need to know if they are powerful or risky. And not just that, you also need to find out what kind of links they are. And we want you to find that out easily.

Use the popular Link Redirect Trace Browser Extension

With our Link Redirect Trace Extension, you can perform advanced, comprehensive and, most importantly, correct analysis of links, redirects, and Rel-Canonicals for your SEO analysis, On-page SEO, Off-page SEO, competitor analysis and more.

You can see instantly if the page has NOINDEX/NOFOLLOW tags, if it is blocked in robots.txt or X-Robots-Tags, how powerful a Link is with our famous LRT Power and LRT Trust, and much more.

The Link Redirect Trace Browser Extension is an all-in-one solution to evaluate a link. You can also use it to check if your configurations are working correctly. If the page is really NOINDEXED now, does the redirect work? All these answers are just one click away.

Did you know that redirects pass link penalties since 2013? One more reason to evaluate your links in great detail. Your site may have good links at first glance, but if there is a hidden redirect coming from a domain that got a penalty, you will inherit that.
