We started developing and testing our own Backlink Index in-house in early 2011. The service has been rolled out to public testing on December 9, 2011. Currently, the database is available as one of the backlink sources in SEO SpyGlass.
As of now, our Link Index features over 2.7 trillion backlinks.
How does it work?
Our own bot crawls the whole Web incessantly, gathering links to our private index.
This ingenious link index is meant for website promoters (SEOs), internet marketers, website owners to get backlink profiles of their own websites and those of their online competition.
Why do I need to monitor my/competitors' backlinks?
Backlink awareness is an entry-level requirement for informed decision-making to
- generate more traffic
- boost search engine rankings
- run smart marketing campaigns
- improve every aspect of web presence
How often is the index updated?
The full web re-crawl cycle takes around 3 months, 7.1 billion web pages crawled daily.
Stick around for more updates
Our Link Index development and testing are ongoing. Stay tuned for major updates, and use the database in your SEO SpyGlass projects to keep an eye on your backlink profile growth!
