Unique organic data-driven algorithm -

Unique organic data-driven algorithm

Link Detox Genesis® is an organic data-driven algorithm that assigns a DTOXRISK to every link depending on an aggregated calculation of multiple patterns and risk signals. It helps you assess all your backlinks, recover from Google manual penalties, protect your website from future penalties, and build new strong links.

Link Detox Risk

Link Detox Risk is a unique risk metric calculating the risk of any link and your whole domain (Domain DTOXRISK®). Judging on the link risk of any single link helps you decide which ones to disavow, delete or to keep.

The Original

Link Detox was the first link audit product launched. Since then, we’ve helped thousands of companies recover from their penalties. Link Detox was free for the first eight months, so that also gave us a head start of many billion data points that no other product ever got to or will be able to incorporate into their algorithm.
