Link Detox: You Can Diagnose Bad Links

SMS Text

Link Detox is a new tool created by the CEMPER.COM guys who also built the Link Research Tools. Christoph C. Cemper, the creator, just recently wrote about how Google can find unnatural links with technology like his own.

Link Detox promises to help you locate and remove “bad” links. Link Detox analyzes all your backlinks up to 60,000 and gathers 93 metrics that it applies automated best-practice SEO rules against. That means after processing all that data, you get recommendations about which links are toxic and should be removed ASAP, as well as which links are suspicious and need further investigation.

The tool detects all kinds of issues, like from a sharp drop in link growth for the linking site (negative link velocity) to typical link network patterns like same domain owners, similar IPs or DNS, and a lot more.

Inside the tool you can rate their results to earn more credits.

Link Detox is also collecting user feedback on:

  • Unnatural link warnings received by Google
  • Specific responses the Google team gave in reconsideration requests (yes, sometimes they pinpoint actual URLs to be spammy, instead of the canned responses most of us know)
  • Details about link networks users have been using

Link Detox uses that feedback to fine tune algorithms, just like Google does with the paid link reports they have been collecting for years. A good idea if you ask me. According to Christoph, “you would be surprised how many details the users give up.” Especially those who have been hit hard by Penguin don’t have any problems giving up hundreds of URLs they bought/spammed a link to/from.

The tool launched just on Monday, but user feedback looks very promising.

Link Detox is currently available for one dollar or a tweet here,  and if you give them helpful feedback, you can earn more credits.
