Get started with Majestic SEO
You can find and work with Majestic SEO data within multiple Raven tools. Here’s a quick primer on each.
The Competitor Manager is a great way to quickly see a ton of data about your website as compared to any competitors you’ve added. Majestic SEO provides the number of pages and number of external backlinks metrics. We pair that data with Raven’s own composite quality score and data from SEOmoz.
Find potential link partners, discover new keywords to target, even compare several domains at once in Research Central , Raven’s one-click research hub. This tool is powered by lots of Majestic SEO data, with just about every tab giving you insightful data from backlinks to referring domains to IP neighborhoods.
Link Manager – Raven’s central clearinghouse for storing, categorizing and monitoring all your links – also provides you with crucial and up-to-date data for each link. Opening any link that you’ve entered into Link Manager will lead you to a display of metrics that include Citation Flow and Trust Flow from Majestic SEO.
These scores between 0 and 100 provide an indication of how sites compare within the context of the internet. Citation Flow focuses on the number citations to a URL, while Trust Flow focuses on the number of clicks from trusted sites to a URL. These metrics update every time you open the link record.
Site Finder is one of the best resources around for finding quality sites on any given topic. It takes the top 10 domains from Bing for the keyword you’ve entered and then provides you a giant list of sites that link to those top URLs. Using Majestic SEO data and other sources, you’ll be able to determine how valuable a link from that each site would be.
From here, you can easily add a link to the Link Manager to begin the relationship- and link-building process.
With Backlink Explorer, you can automatically see the backlinks to any website, then easily add these links to the Link Manager – knocking hours off your research process. Try entering your competitor’s domain for an instant view of websites that are linking to them. Now you’ve got a brand-new list of top link prospects.
Good to know
Virtually all of these tools are reportable, so you have all of Majestic SEO’s data at your fingertips to report to a boss or a client: website research, link building and relationship research and competitive analysis, anytime you need it.
