Review and Evaluate Link Opportunities
If you are looking for great new links to help you with your ranking and you want to review and evaluate them, then you can use our Link Simulator (LORT).
You will benefit most from using LORT if you have a few links or maybe just one link that you would like to analyze in more detail. With this tool, you can check the value of new link opportunities, prioritize your link building efforts, check the quality of each link and get accurate results within minutes.
With the Link Simulator (LORT) you will get results within minutes because LORT uses your existing Link Detox Report. We have all the calculations ready for you, so you don’t have to wait for hours to get a full report.
Keep in mind, that if you are acquiring new links, you should consider how they will appear compared with your existing links. The to do that is by using LORT.
Benefits of LORT
- Check the value of new link opportunities
Find potential new links to add to your existing backlink profile and quickly check their quality before you integrate them in your backlink profile.
- Review potential links
Check and review all potential new links with the whole Link Detox metrics suite. The difference is that with LORT you get the results in minutes based on your existing Link Detox report.
- Analyze the quality of up to 10 000 Backlinks in minutes
If you only have a handful of links to analyze, let LORT tell you if they are worth investing more time in.
Warning: before you start a new LORT report, make sure you have already finished a DTOX report for your domain, to get a baseline and that you have classified at least 80% of your keywords in this report.
