Majestic SEO is a very powerful link analysis tool used by SEO specialists, affiliate marketers, and business owners alike. It can show you advanced results to help your website rank at the top of the search engines for various keywords.
There are so many uses for this tool such as: link analysis, competitor analysis, link building, reputation management, monitoring backlink profiles, etc. There is so much this tool can do and it is extremely useful for SEO companies.
A nice benefit that many people do not know exists is the free report they offer for verified site owners. What this means is that if you own a website you are entitled to a free backlink analysis. Although this is not all the tool does, it is one of the most widely used features.
To enable this all you need to do is sign up for an account and add your website as a verified site. Create a free account at http://www.MajesticSeo.com and go to reports. Add a new report and on the next page it will ask you if you own this domain and want to get a free report. Click on the link that says free report or go to this URL: http://www.majesticseo.com/reports/create-free-report to get your free report. Once here you will need to upload a .txt file with a verification code for the name. The easiest way to do this is with a FTP client such as FileZilla. Save a blank notepad file with the code given to you by Majestic SEO. You will then upload this to the root directory of your website. If you are confused you can call your hosting company and they will gladly walk you through the process. Once this has been completed you will need to wait a few minutes to a few hours for Majestic SEO to gather all back link profile data.
You are given three report types for few, standard, advanced, and tracking (BETA). I would suggest using the advanced as this will give you more details about the backlinks and where they point to on your site. It also lets you see if links are going to http://yoursite.com or http://www.yoursite.com which is seen as two different websites by the search engines.
The report shows an overview of all your backlinks, a history showing when they were discovered,
Your link profile which analyzes trust and citation flow, referring country for domains, anchor text used, internal URL rankings, top-level domains (TLD), referring domain, and IP addresses.
The reports are even updated every time you log back in with fresh data so you can always know what is going on with your website and how it is looking to the search engines when it comes to backlinks. You can even download and export entire reports of your backlinks, anchor text used, linking domain, and much more useful information.
