Links! You need links! That is probably one of the major things a marketer hears when he or she is discussing the future and ranking possibilities of their websites. But where to get those links? And how to check if they are there?
The first paragraph you just read is something which many marketers will recognize and it is the reason for existence for many tools out there that give you insight in links. Tools that either use search engines like Google or Yahoo, tools that use other tools and tools that scrape the web themselves. All these tools have one issue however: is the link still there? And how fresh is the link. Majestic SEO, one of the tools that scrape the web themselves, now believe they have the absolute reign when it comes to freshest back link data. They claim that with their tool you can now discover backlinks which were created only 24 hours earlier.
This week Majestic releases a new index which will have the ‘new’ database in it, they are calling it their “Fresh Index”. The new Site Explorer they are launching will default to it.
I was able to run a test and indeed I saw backlinks which were made less than 24 hours ago. Yet another step forward therefore for Majestic.
