Such an increase in the number of visits from qualified leads and the number clicks received from them often goes hand-in-hand with an increase in the conversion rates.

How is search engine optimization (SEO) with links possible?

Search Engines Analyze Links

The web is built by only two major elements. Content and Links.

Search Engines like Google read the website content and try to figure out, which is the best document for a specified search query. While there are many text retrieval methods available, the strongest signal has and always will be the number of
links from other websites (or citations in the academic world).


Over the years, the understanding of how backlinks to a website need to be and need to develop over time to help and not hurt it's so called "organic rankings" has improvement tremendously on both sides of the field.

One one hand savvy web marketers and SEOs try to understand and exploit all possible ways to increase their organic traffic.

On the other hand there's Google and other search engines who will never confirm that manipulation of their organic search results is possible, and being done by whole industry for decades.

Christoph C. Cemper Founder & CEO of LinkResearchTools and Link Detox

Christoph C. Cemper started working in online marketing in 2003 providing SEO consulting and link building services with his agency. Out of the need for reliable and accurate SEO software, he developed LinkResearchTools and launched to the public in 2009 as a SaaS product with only four tools. Today LinkResearchTools is the undisputed leader when it comes to link data quality, backlink profile coverage, and accuracy of link risk assessment thanks to dozens of link data sources and methods that undergo ongoing development.

When the famous Google Penguin update changed the rules of SEO in 2012, Christoph launched Link Detox®, software built for finding toxic links in a website’s backlink profile. Christoph has introduced the technology and formal process for ongoing link audits in 2012 as well as pro-active removal and disavow of toxic backlinks since 2011. In 2019 a much higher degree of automation and accuracy was introduced to the public with the Smart product line of LinkResearchTools and Link Detox, providing the user with advisory and SEO knowledge patterns applied for the user automatically on the data.

Christoph also teaches at different universities about online marketing, SEO, link building or business process management.
