We are pleased to announce our new and improved SEO tools! We have the great features you’re used to from blekko — duplicate content, inbound links and outbound links — and now we provide even more SEO data. Blekko performs 120 million searches per month through the 20 billion pages it has indexed, over 100 million of which are updated daily. This data allows blekko to provide up-to-the-minute SEO data from the unique perspective of a search engine.
Our subscription-based service has a sophisticated interface and comprehensive data that provides developers with important ranking metrics to help optimize and drive traffic to their websites. The new features include page analysis and SEO report cards, inbound links based on category, full link reports, and instant SEO access from blekko’s search engine. As a subscriber, you can look up as many urls as you want, including SEO data for competitors.
We’d like to highlight a few of the new features we mentioned. The Inbound Links report has gotten a major upgrade in the form of realtime updates! We show you the newest inbound links and provide links to the exact articles or pages where your site is being mentioned. Underneath the realtime feed, you can access a list of domains, their host rank, and number of links that point back to your site. Given blekko’s commitment to spam-free search and editorial prowess in curating slashtags, you can bet we are returning high quality sites.
Another cool way we present this data is organizing inbound links by category. This is especially unique to blekko thanks to our slashtag technology, which organizes high quality websites by topic. Now for SEO purposes, you can see which topics drive the most traffic to your site. For the New York Times, in the image below, some of the main categories of traffic sources are politics, sports, and science. When mousing over the circles, you will see the top sites that are linking back to your website.
Now for the SEO Report Card. The idea of report cards may conjure up flashbacks, but this is the kind you want to pore over. When it comes to the mysteries of site performance, this is where we break it down. We evaluate 45 factors, organized under larger areas of Anchors, Url, Content, Performance, and Links. Not only do we give letter grades but we provide detail and context so you understand what’s working and what’s not! With this information, you can effectively tailor your site for optimization.
You may have wondered what exactly a crawler indexes on your web page. We provide exactly that kind of insight in the Sections report. We tell you how many page sections were looked at, how many were included, and how many were excluded. This is honey to obsessive data geeks. And we mean that in a good way!
In addition to knowing who is linking to you, wouldn’t it be grand to know where you’re being mentioned? The Domain Roundup wonderfully tells you all about your web presence. Here you will find links, summaries, and timestamps of recent pages that mention your domain. You will also get a list of similar sites (great for benchmarking) and listings where your domain is mentioned.
That’s just a glimpse of the new blekko SEO tools, folks. As CEO Rich Skrenta eloquently put it, “Blekko’s premium SEO tools give developers unique and often privately kept data about web domains content. Unlike other search engine analytic tools which only show general data on inbound links, our premium SEO tools provide full data reports that can be used to compare SEO stats between sites and direct SEO access from blekko search result pages.”
We hope you are as excited about the blekko SEO tools as we are, and will check them out!
