SEOprofiler's Link Profiler

SEOprofiler's Link Profiler is a powerful backlink analysis tool. It enables you to analyze the freshest backlinks of any website. A fresh backlink is a backlink that has been found within the last 90 days. The link can be older but it has been active during the last 90 days. That means that you get the links that currently influence the position of a website on Google and other search engines.

Why is SEOprofiler's Link Profiler better than other backlink analysis tools?

We save the freshest 200,000 backlinks for each domain. All backlinks that are shown by SEOprofiler's Link Profiler have been found during the last 90 days. This has several advantages:

If you see more backlinks in another link analysis tool, it is very likely that the backlink number that is displayed on their website is not the number of links that you can actually access. Other tools also limit the number of domains that you can analyze. With the Link Profiler tool in SEOprofiler, you can analyze as many domains as you want.

In addition, the Link Profiler tool also shows you the industry of the linking website and the category of each individual link. That information enables you to get a much better overview of the links that point to a website.

Why do I save time with the Link Profiler tool in SEOprofiler?

The links that you can find with the Link Profiler tool have been found during the last few weeks and that they are still active. In other words, these are the links that influence the current rankings of your web pages.

Most of the other link analysis tools also list links that do not exist anymore, inflating the numbers. While it is nice to know that a page used to link to your website in the past, it is not really helpful.

The Link Profiler tool in SEOprofiler helps you to get results:

The main goal of the Link Profiler tool is to deliver actionable data. If you don't have to deal with links that do not exist anymore, you will save a lot of time and you will get things done more quickly.

Where do we get the backlink data from?

We use our own backlink crawlers to find new backlinks on the Internet. We host many terabytes of data and we employ hundreds of servers to offer you the most accurate, most detailed and most up-to-date link database.

Our web crawlers continually visit web pages and index the links on these web pages. New backlinks are added to our database every 5 minutes. You get access to a unique backlink database with the Link Profiler tool.

Why do other backlink analysis tools sometimes display higher numbers?

SEOprofiler concentrates on fresh links and we save a maximum of 200,000 fresh links per page. These fresh links are updated continually. All links that can be found in the Link Profiler tool have been confirmed within the last 90 days. The links can be older but they must have been active during the last 90 days.

What do the columns on the link analysis page mean?

The 'Results' page that you get when you enter a website URL contains the following information:

Factor Explanation
LIS: The Link Influence Score (LIS) shows the influence of the links from the website on the search engine rankings of the linked pages. The higher the LIS, the greater is the influence of a link from the website on the search engine rankings of the linked page. The Link Influence Score is calculated based on the quality and the number of links that point to a website. The higher the quality of the inbound links, the higher the Link Influence Score. It ranges from 0-100%.
Page title: The displayed page title is the title of the web page that links to the analyzed site. Links from related web pages tend to have a bigger influence on the search engine rankings of the linked page than links from unrelated web pages. The title of a web page is usually a good indicator of the topic of a page.

Why is a web page that links to your site not listed in the report?

The more backlinks the web page with the link to your web page has, the quicker our web crawlers will find the backlink to your site.

If a backlink that points to your website could not be found by our web crawlers, it is likely that the impact of this backlink on your website's search engine rankings is low. Our web crawlers visit important pages more often. Less important pages are also scanned but the frequency is lower.

If it is a new backlink, it is likely that the link will be detected with the next update. In general, do not focus on analyzing your existing backlinks. Focus on getting new backlinks. Getting new good backlinks to your website will greatly improve your search engine rankings.

Some backlink analysis tools might show higher link numbers for some websites. If you get a higher number with a different tool, it is likely that many of the report links are outdated and broken, and it is likely that the other tool won't allow you to access all of the reported links. With the Link Profiler tool in SEOprofiler, you get more backlinks and you can access all of the reported backlinks.

We focus on Western domains

We are privately held company and we operate without any venture capital. We have invested a lot of time, money and expertise to build the unique link database that you can access in the Link Profiler tool.

Our main target markets are North and South America, Europe, Australia/New Zealand, India and South Africa. Storing the information for millions of Chinese, Russian and some other websites would dramatically increase the costs for running our service while offering little benefit to our target group. For that reason, you cannot analyze the backlinks of Chinese, Russian and some other domains wit the Link Profiler. We apologize if your website falls in this category.

If you or your competitors don't do business with China, Russia and some other Asian countries then it's very likely that this limitation won't have an effect on your reports. The backlink report might miss one or two links from Chinese or Russian websites but the vast majority of all links will be found. If you operate in a Western country, the Link Profiler tool in SEOprofiler is the right tool for you.
