Link Detox includes many different metrics for each backlink.
These metrics help you quickly understand a backlink so you can save time deciding to keep it or disavow it.
Here’s a quick introduction about the metrics and graphics used in Link Detox.
High Link Audit Priority
This icon symbolizes all bad links to your site. You should immediately remove them.
Medium Link Audit Priority
This icon symbolizes all medium risk links to your site. You should investigate them.
Low Link Audit Priority
This icon symbolizes all the low risk links to your site. They’re probably safe for now.
Link Detox Risk Score (DTOXRISK™)
This metric gives your Link Detox reports better insights. You can now take immediate action on managing the risk of your links. You will be able to see a complete breakdown of the risk level for each individual link and your entire backlink profile.
DTOXRISK™ specifies what the problem is so you can fix it fast to avoid a search engine penalty.
Our patented metric is based on years of research and calculations that determines the quality of a website according to its strength and trustworthiness.
By just looking at the LRT Power*Trust™ of a backlink, you will instantly know its link quality.
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.
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.
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’s probably penalized and should be disavowed.
