A set of measures to audit the reference mass of a site

During the audit the following work is carried out:

  • Inbound link analysis. It is aimed at identifying harmful links. The referring sites are being studied. They should have a similar theme, good weight and reputation. This procedure provides an opportunity to determine the usefulness of incoming links, take into account the probability of falling under the filters due to poor quality;

  • Analysis of outbound links. It is the study of the number of transitions from the site to other resources. Each link to an easier site takes the donor's weight. This has a negative impact on the ranking. Therefore, it is necessary to identify and remove all hidden or non-useful links. From the point of view of search engines, the transitions to resources with a large weight and similar themes are considered to be useful. A large number of irrelevant references to your resource can cause suspicion in trading them. This is cruelly punished by search engines;

  • Checking the dynamics of reference mass growth. It means obtaining an analysis of the growth rates of reference mass. Dynamics of organically developing resources remains stable. When buying or selling links, the indicator fluctuates abruptly. This can cause suspicion in the search engines. We will help to identify the causes of abnormal dynamics. Perhaps you have posted very high-quality content, which is rapidly gaining popularity thanks to a thoughtful SEO campaign;

  • Analysis of the anchor spamming. The task is to identify keywords (including commercial ones) that appear regularly in links and make recommendations for the optimal balance of keys.
