  7. 7. Widgets Website
  8. 8. Domain or URL Analysis?? • Strong domain (high values of Trust Flow and relatively low Citation Flow) are a high level signal that the domain is trustworthy • The fact that a domain is trustworthy does not implicate that any link from that domain will do • Choose candidate pages from which to seek a link based on page level metrics - see this very interesting post by Dixon Jones on this subject
  9. 9. Related Sites Geographically Similar Sites, Competitors and Sites related by Business Relationships
  10. 10. Restaurants near the Admiral… Let’s use the Related Sites function with Restaurants!
  11. 11. Link Context Redefining Links…
  12. 12. Link Context is a visualised content distribution analysis to evaluate the quality of a link
  13. 13. •Helps discover links in a new way •Backlink checkers and SEO tools view links like bridges between pages on the web, but backlinks are surrounded by things such as text, images, objects and frames - all part of the context of an article, blogpost, or a listing of resources Link Context…
  14. 14. Link Context… •Searches for text and links around your backlinks •Offers strategic and inspirational insights on how a backlink has been conceived and deployed because it takes into account the context where the backlink is positioned on a page •Provides fast and efficient auditing and prospecting for quality link building •Changes your perception of links
  15. 15. Understands the ecosystem of a page, Identifies the link's context and facilitates the task of identifying good links and bad links Link Context is used to find out how much text surrounds a backlink, how many other links are present nearby, how densely the links are organized, for you to understand if the link is editorial or from a directory page Link Context…
  16. 16. Link Context is measured by Link Density, how densely links are packed into each page segment.
  17. 17. A Closer Look at Link Context How it actually works…
  18. 18. From left-to-right - A link in the header of a BBC web page - A citation in a Wikipedia article - An editorial link from an article on medium.com - A link from a small blog (page size is too small to generate 40 segments) - A link from the hub of a directory site - A footer link on the personal blog from a UK TV personality.

  20. 20. Majestic Campaigns Sharing Link Intelligence with Clients and your Network of Contacts
  21. 21. “A clique, in the social sciences, is a group of individuals who interact with one another and share similar interests.” Definition of Clique - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clique
  22. 22. Custom Reports Where detailed analysis begins…
  23. 23. Use Pivot Tables! Create Value-Added Information with your Data!
  24. 24. Page Inventory Hack! Majestic crawl data can be used to verify your website architecture
  25. 25. https://developer-support.majestic.com/
  26. 26. Example: Backlink Profile Analysis Analysing a backlink profile in the fish and food processing industry
  27. 27. Backlink Analysis Setup • Fresh Index (last 90 days of backlinks) • 774 individual backlinks to be examined • Objectives: • Identify backlink patterns • Explore areas of interest “off the beaten path” • Suggest a link building strategy
  28. 28. Example: Backlink Profile Analysis Analysis of competitors backlink profiles (fish and food processing industry)
  29. 29. Off the beaten path… • Information from backlink profile offered the “status quo” - a snapshot of the backlink profile for us to understand where the links were coming from • We were able to map the backlink profile ecosystem • We analysed competitors in search for ideas and strategies as a starting point in our link building strategy
  30. 30. Off the beaten path… • We also took a more specific approach and analysed single components/equipment in search for signals • We discovered two important areas of interest with link building potential that competitors had not exploited:  Slaughter  Bleeding
  31. 31. http://fishcount.org.uk/fish-welfare-in-commercial-fishing/humane-slaughter
  32. 32. Off the beaten path… Animal Rights Websites • This page, identified in our backlink analysis, had generated a number of organic links from animal rights activists websites • The advanced technologies made available by the client, explained and communicated from such a point of view, could offer the opportunity for media exposure, hence organic backlink growth! • Would client fish processing technology be classified as “Certified Humane”? This could be a different way to promote the brand and gain genuine organic links with a positive sentiment.
  33. 33. Off the beaten path… Scientific Journals • In depth and extensive backlink analyses identified scientific journals featuring publications on fisheries and related technologies. • Research performed by the client, could be a perfect fit for one or more of the online publications identified. • The objective is to have research published. Even simple citations would be beneficial in this area.
  34. 34. Link Context at work! This analysis was performed in a matter of hours with Link Context and filtering with Link density: This activity would have taken us days of relentless painstaking manual link auditing to identify editorial links, excluding from our analysis links from low quality directories
  35. 35. Case History: Toxic Backlinks Are toxic backlinks with a nofollow harm your rankings?
  36. 36. Date 1st disavow file was uploaded
  37. 37. Considerations • Based on this case history and other cases reported in literature, there appears to be a direct connection between this kind of massive backlink SPAM and loss of organic placement – at least in the immediate when the search engines automatically detect an unusual behaviour • The use of Link Intelligence by Majestic provides the data to fight back and maintain a high profile awareness, providing search engines with constant feedback – signals to communicate our extraneousness. • Campaigns play a fundamental role in monitoring backlink profiles.
  38. 38. Topical Linking Find the Best Pages and Link Out to Them!
  39. 39. Topical Linking • Links to authoritative pages can help your rankings, but how can you find the “best” pages to link out to? • Let’s consider the case we have a recipe website and want to write an article about Spaghetti Bolognese: ideally we would feature original content with a selection of high quality links to other authoritative sources for the user to consult for more information on this food
  40. 40. Topical Linking • Run searches on the Search Engines • Run the same searches on the Majestic Search Explorer
