Improve Your Backlink Profile in the Post-Penguin Era
Compare Your Link Popularity with Competitors
Track how well your website is doing compared to your competitors. See what your competitors' weak points are. This will help you to craft an outranking strategy.
Know Who Links to You
After the Google Penguin updates, it is important to measure not only the quantity of your backlinks, but their quality too. Find out who links to you and remove toxic links that may harm your rankings.
Diversify Your Backlink Texts
If you have too many exact matching backlink anchor texts, your backlink profile will look unnatural for search engines. To assure your site doesn't alarm the Google Penguin penalty filters, analyze what texts are used in links to your pages and diversify them.
What You Get With the Web CEO Backlink Quality Check
With the 'Linking Pages' report you will get a full list of all incoming links to your website found by Ahrefs. In the 'Status' column you will see whether a given link is good for your link profile.
Linking Domains Diversity:
Search engines are sure that 1 link from 100 domains is better, than 100 links from one domain. Use the 'Linking Domain' report to check whether the linking domains are diverse enough to prove your website's authority.
