About the Website Directory



The Website Directory aggregates all of the Campaigns related to links recorded in the Link Manager or competitors added to the Competitor Manager. The purpose of the Website Directory is to help you reference and find websites for building links, as well as store at-a-glance information about competitors.

Website Directory information is accessible by all Websites and Profiles associated with a Raven account.

How to use the Website Directory

1. Search for Stored Websites

When you create a Link Record in the Link Manager, or add a competitor to the Competitor Manager, Raven automatically creates an entry in the Website Directory for the website. The system can store thousands of sites in the Website Directory, with quality, backlink, domain and indexed pages information about each one.

To search for stored websites:

    1. Go to SEO > Website Directory.
    2. Enter a search term in the search form. Results will include this term in any part of the the domain name or URL. You can narrow or expand your search by clicking on the Profiles drop-down and making a selection or by clicking Mozrank and selecting a specific score.


    3. Click on the Search button.
    4. Raven returns results for your search.

2. Adjust Display Settings

To adjust the columns of information returned in your search, click the Display Settings link. Check the boxes next to the information you want to see, including the Profile and Websites associated with this search, active, paid and declined links, quality score and mozRank and whether or not this website sells links. Click the "Update" button to save your settings.

Adjust the number of results you view on one page from 10-1000 in the drop-down menu next to the Display Settings link.


3. Review Website Directory data

Click on the name of a website or select View Website Record from the gear icon next to the website in question, for a detail view of the website's quality, related contacts and backlink information.

From this view, you can also click the "Find Contacts" link to instruct Raven to uncover up to 10 contacts for this website. (See the Raven Knowledge Base Contacts article for more information.)
