LinkResearchTools (LRT) - Link data quality re-crawled for you

If you go to an outdated link database, you can buy link data that's five years old. This is good as raw data, as input into a system link LinkResearchTools (LRT). Just have in mind that the web changes every day, these links changed over time, maybe some of them don't even exist anymore.

That's why it's important to look at the most recent picture of your backlink profile, and it's only LinkResearchTools (LRT) that crawls all your links in real time. You get accurate, reliable and fresh link data in one central system. We clean, re-crawl and verify the link data for you.

In Link Explorer (LEX) we do a breakdown by quality links, quality domains, and quality root domains and we show you the re-crawl progress for all your links. You want to look at fresh backlink data, and we make sure that we re-crawl the links that matter to you on a weekly basis.

Spot broken redirect chains that affect your rankings

In Link Explorer (LEX) you get accurate and fresh information about all your redirects and understand their impact. You sure want your redirects to pass all the link power, but if you have No Follow links that break your redirect chains, then your redirects are useless. If you manage to spot that, you can boost your website's rankings only by fixing these issues.

There's no software out there that shows you that kind of detail for the redirects.


No Follow Links Breaking the Redirect Chain in the Link Explorer (LEX) Overview

Trace rel=canonicals also on a cross-domain level

The rel=canonical element is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues. By using the rel=canonical tag, you tell the search engines what's the “preferred” version of a web page. What this does is “merge” the two pages into one from a search engine’s perspective.

Google takes into account cross-domain rel=canonicals. By detecting which version is canonical, Google counts all the links towards all the different versions of a page, as links to that single version.

Link Explorer (LEX) allows you to trace rel=canonicals, both on site, but also across domains and understand their impact on your website.

There could be redirects that have a negative effect on your website's rankings. Link Explorer (LEX) is the only solution that can help you get an overview of your website's rel=canonicals, including the cross-domain rel=canonicals. You cannot find this feature in any other link analysis product.
