Data sources at Linkbox backlink counter

In the backlink counter tool, there are only two sources of backlinks: those added manually and those imported into the crawlers tab. For both, you need to set up a backlink campaign. It's straightforward; click the 'Create campaign' button and follow the instructions.

Manually imported external links are those that you're aware of and have saved in Excel or other data sheets. You can upload them directly into your campaign for counting.

Another category of reciprocal links is acquired from various crawlers like Google backlink counter (Google Search Console), Ahrefs, Semrush, Majestic, and other less popular ones. The key distinction with links obtained from these sources is that some of them emerge without your direct action. You'll need to download files containing links from each of these tools and then upload those files to the Linkbox backlink counter. To do this, utilize the Crawlers tab, which includes sections for uploading files from GSC and Ahrefs. For other crawlers, the Linkbox backlink counter provides a Temporary tab.

What information you get in backlink counter tool

Lets group all reciprocal link information in several groups based on Linkbox tool modules:

Primary backlink table information:

In this table, information is categorized based on root domains and pages that link to your website.

Data for referring domains in the backlink counter tool:

  1. Percentage of indexed referring pages for each domain.
  2. Number of backlinks per domain.
  3. Number of tier 2 external links referring to this domain (accessible only if you have uploaded your own tier 2 external links and checked them).

Data for donor pages in the backlink counting tool:

  1. HTTP code of the donor page.
  2. Interception with crawlers (only if you have uploaded crawler data).
  3. Number of backlinks on this page.
  4. Indexing status (only when you've performed the "Check indexing link" check): Green - indexed, Red - not indexed, Grey - never checked.
  5. Dates of past checkouts. Index - date of the last "Check indexing link" action, check - date of the last "Check link" checkout, index - date of the last "Google add URL" checkout.
  6. Indexing options.
  7. Additional pop-up information.

Additionally, you can quickly analyze the summarized information by reviewing the graph. It calculates the indexed/not indexed ratio over the days of checkouts. Next to the graph, there's a summary of your inbound links, including total backlinks, reciprocal links added to the history tab, indexed external links, unverified links, and links with invalid response codes (not 200).

Data within the Anchor List tab:

Anchor relevance stands as a crucial factor in Google's ranking algorithm, evident to any proficient SEO specialist. Hence, it's crucial to tally all anchor texts from your inbound links already indexed or added to Google Console. Linkbox's Anchor List tab serves this purpose efficiently.

Above the data table, you'll find the total count of donor pages and reciprocal links. For these reciprocal links, you can perform various actions such as "Export" and "Google add URL".

Let's explore the information available for analysis in this table. Data here is organized based on anchor texts of inbound links. Each anchor text's quantity and percentage in relation to the total number of anchors are listed. Additionally, individual scrutiny of each backlink associated with a specific anchor text is possible.

Information provided for each individual anchor:

  1. Referring page URL
  2. Acceptor page URL
  3. Indexing status
  4. Crawler interaction, including the date added and any fallout
  5. Campaign linked to this specific anchor
  6. Attributes of the backlink on this anchor
  7. Type of inbound link

The Anchor List graph makes it easy to visualize the distribution of backlink counts within crawlers. This allows for an assessment of the naturalness of your promotional site's external link profile. Additionally, the graph presents various useful ratios:

  • Indexing option ratio
  • Backlink type ratio
  • Index status ratio
  • Nofollow/dofollow ratio
