In the past few months we’ve b [...]

Since July, when we launched the automatic unnatural link detection tool, we analyzed carefully how our customers use it.
We quickly understood that you needed a fast way to manually validate the links to be disavowed, in order to be 100% confident that those are the correct ones.
In order to be 100% sure that a link is unnatural or not, you actually need to load that page and look for the link on the page. The major problem, is that you usually have to visit hundreds, if not thousands, [...]

This will save you a lot of time as you will be able to save your favorite filters and apply them later on.
Here is a quick guide on how to do it:
1. Apply a set of normal filters. (minimum 2)
2. Save as Custom Filter
Can too few Brand Anchor Text or too much Commercial Anchor Text penalize a site? (note: commercial anchor text is also known as Money or SEO anchor text)

Visual Link Explorer - Cutting-Edge Link Graphs Made Simple
This is the easiest, yet advanced, visualization that allows you to comprehend the ever-growing complexity of a site’s link profile.
No other SEO tool has implemented automatic extraction, creation and navigation of Link Gr [...]
