What are tags?
The tag function offers you the possibility to add personal notes in your Link Detox reports. With this feature you can create comments and marks to organize your workflow in a more efficient matter. Tags are available to use in Link Detox (DTOX) and Link Simulator (LORT).
Why do I need to use tags?
You don’t have to use tags but they are very useful. For example:
- Mark a link that has been reviewed
- Mark a link where the webmaster needs to be contacted
- Mark a link where you have received an answer from a webmaster
- Mark a link that you wish to check at a later date?
- Use tags to mark the links you decide to build.
You could tag each link with a priority, a team member name, a maximum time budget to spend on getting that link, and any other notes for your outreach team. Then you can download only the tagged potential links as an Excel file and also use this as goal definition for the outreach.
Tags can be used to keep everything well organized. You can use tags to add notes to links for you and your team.
Tags can be added to links in a Link Detox report in four ways:

Using multiple tags can be used, but only the first will be displayed in the Tags column along with a number to show how many tags are applied to this link. In the example below there are two tags on the first link. Clicking the number 2 2 will open a pop up displaying all the tags that apply to this link:

To add a tag to multiple links at the same time, just check the links you want in the first column, enter your tag and hit enter:
