What is Backlink Explorer?



Raven extracts data from third-party partner Majestic to uncover up to 50,000 backlinks for any URL. You'll see the source URL, the links Citation Flow, its anchor text and whether it's a nofollow or image link. With one click you can add any backlink to the Raven Tools Link Manager.

Backlink Explorer can group source URLs so you can see at a glance which sites are linking to your site the most. Also, you can hide links that are irrelevant to your research.

Think you know everyone who's linking to your website?

Chances are, you don't. True, Google Analytics provides a lot of data about referral traffic. But so does Majestic, one of the largest Internet crawlers. Backlink Explorer data comes from Majestic — and Raven includes Google Analytics referral link data — so you can get the most complete picture.

Can't figure out how competitors worked their way to the top?

Competitive analysis is like trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle that's missing pieces. Add a few more pieces to the pile with a Backlink Explorer report on your competitors' websites or pages. You may turn up valuable information for your own link building campaigns — and discern what to avoid.

Find out if poor quality backlinks are dragging down your website

Link building tactics that were OK just a couple of years ago are now considered spammy. Do you have backlinks that you don't want, perhaps from old blogrolls? Do you think you might be a target of negative SEO? Find the source with Backlink Explorer.
