Linkdex prides itself on having the most complete, accurate and useful backlink data in the world by far. This is achieved by:
- Creating A List Of Sites To Visit – Linkdex accesses the largest commercially available data sources as starting point for our own crawler and indexing technology. These include Majestic, who has the largest commercially available link map (Nearly 10 times the size of SEOMoz’s Linkscape), and Alexa, the largest traffic and domain data source.
- Visit Linking Pages & Capture Content – Linkdex visits the linking pages to verify and clean our source data, and capture the content.
- Profile Linking Pages – We then use our complex algorithms to profile and segment the linking pages into site types, as well as capturing other useful information like the link destinations and anchor text.
- Score Link Sources – Linkdex uses advanced algorithms to score sites based on authority and trust (Influence) and relevance to your market defining keywords. Our scoring methodogies are unique and allow you to pinpoint quality links sources over link spam, and contextual links from relevant content over links from unrelated content in seconds. Only a complex data mashup is capable of achieving our Influence score and our Relevance score is only made possible because we store the page that we first visited for you within a users account. We are the only tool to be able to do these calculation.
This process takes us between 2 and 4 hours to complete depending on the size of the number of websites we’re visiting which can often run into the hundreds of thousands.
