LRT Power™

LRT Power™

The LRT Power™ metric, released in 2012, was the first metric that made Google PageRank™ obsolete. Similar to PageRank™, the LRT Power™ metric determines the strength of a website based on the number and power of links.

PageRank™ should be viewed as a legacy link metric, as Google is not updating it anymore.

LRT Trust™

LRT Trust™

Shortly after the release of LRT Power™, LinkResearchTools created another unique metric to further evaluate the quality of a link. The LRT Trust™ metric is comparable to the TrustRank patent, and indicates the implied trust of the page in Google.

In concept, the trustworthiness of a page is calculated by the inheritance of trust from trusted sites. The higher the LRT Trust™, the safer the site is for linking.

LRT Power*Trust™

LRT Power*Trust™

Our patented metric is based on years of research and calculations that determines the quality of a website according to its strength and trustworthiness.

LRT Power*Trust™ is equal to the LRT Power™ multiplied by the LRT Trust™

By just looking at the LRT Power*Trust™ of a backlink, you will instantly understand its link quality.

TitleRank™

TitleRank™

We’ve all heard about the punishments from Google’s Penguin updates. So we created another unique metric to easily judge the quality of a link.

The TitleRank™ metric measures how well a linking page ranks in Google for its page title. If it ranks on a very high page number, or does not rank at all, then it has probably been penalized and should be disavowed.
