You can use the Link Research SEO Toolbar to customize your searches in Google, Bing and Yandex. You can also enable it as a page toolbar, so you look at advanced SEO metrics for every page.
Here’s what you can do with the Link Research SEO Toolbar: • See the Power and Trust of a domain or page • Discover great places to get links from • See how successful a page is on social media • Understand user engagement • See the strongest pages by Keyword Ranking • Spot drastic changes in the number of links • See how many backlinks a page has.
All this is possible by looking at a set of powerful SEO metrics: • LRT Power*Trust for domains • LRT Power*Trust for pages • Buzz - social media signals • Impact - long-term user engagement metrics • Keyword Ranking • Link Velocity Trends • Number of Backlinks
Why LRT Power*Trust? Because LRT Power*Trust is a precise, reliable and stable metric built by LinkResearchTools shortly after the first Google Penguin update in 2012, as a result of many years of research and calculations.
Forget about Google’s Toolbar PageRank. Google stopped updating it many years ago and completely removed it from their toolbar in April 2016.
You can think of LRT Power*Trust as a replacement for Google’s toolbar PageRank, but it’s so much more. LRT Power*Trust is the metric to look at when you want to assess the quality and trustworthiness of a page, domain or top domain.
Why Keyword Ranking? The Link Research SEO Toolbar’s “Keyword Ranking” metric allows you to take a quick look at your competitors’ keyword rankings. By evaluating the keywords your competitors rank for, you will easily come up with new ideas for your content optimization.
Why Buzz? Buzz is Impactana’s aggregate of social media signals, divided into shares and likes. By using the Link Research SEO toolbar to sort the search results by Buzz, you can quickly find out what sort of content is “HOT” on social media. You can use Google’s time filter to see only the pages indexed in the past year, month or week.
Why Impact? The Impact metric helps you discover strong content that people linked to a lot and engaged with by commenting or downloading it. This metric measures user engagement for any content, not only for the one that goes viral on social media. A good article about construction will not get shared on social media, but it may get many links or comments if it’s great.
Why link velocity trends? A website needs to have a steady link growth. Search engines can interpret unnatural link growth as a negative signal, which can lead to a loss in the rankings. Google uses link growth trends to detect any algorithm manipulation attempts. If your backlink profile grows too fast, you’re out. If you’re too slow, you won’t ever get on the first page.
Why backlinks? Google confirmed links to be a top ranking factor. That's a very strong reason to look at links whenever you analyse the strength of a page or domain.
