1. New in SEOprofiler: the much improved Top 5 Link Finder

the new and much improved Top 5 Link Finder tool Some links have much more influence on the rankings of the linked sites than other links. These relevant links will give your web pages a ranking boost on Google and other search engines. The much improved Top 5 Link Finder tool in SEOprofiler helps you to get these links.

Focus on the websites that matter and save time

Some websites are more relevant to a particular topic than other sites. If these websites link to your site, search engines will find your pages more relevant to that topic.

The Top 5 Link Finder tool helps you to find relevant websites that are willing to link to other sites. It shows the sites that link to at least two of the top ranked sites for a particular keyword.

These linking sites are influential and they are willing to link to other sites. With the Top 5 Link Finder tool, you can focus on the websites that matter:

  • Websites that influence the position of the top ranked sites.
  • Websites that are related to the topic of your site.
  • Websites that are willing to link to other sites.

The new Top 5 Link Finder

The Top 5 Link Finder is based on our previous Hub Finder tool. It helps you to find these highly influential sites. If such a website links to your site, search engines will know that your website is relevant to a particular topic.

The new version of the Top 5 Link Finder tool uses our new and much improved link database system. It finds many more good websites than before.

It's very easy

It's very easy to work with the Top 5 Link Finder tool. Enter the keyword for which you want to be found and select the country in which you want to get high rankings. The Top 5 Link Finder will retrieve the top ranked pages and it will show you the websites that link to at least two of these pages.

Alternatively, you can enter the URLs of up to five competitors to find websites that link to many of your competitors. It is very likely that these websites will also link to your site.

GoogleGoogle fixes the cache 404 issue with mobile-first indexing

"After several months, Google has fixed the bug that caused the cache page to fail to load. [...] It caused concern amongst SEOs and site owners that the cache link would 404. But Google said it didn’t impact rankings or anything else; it was just an internal bug."

Ready or not, Google’s mobile-first indexing is here

"Google is now using a mobile-first index based on how devices crawl the web. It’s a radical change from the old desktop-centric approach. [...]

Most traditional SEO techniques will still work and it’s important to implement them properly. Google emphasized that if you only have a desktop version of a site you will not be penalized."

"Without ever leaving Search, you can now review and delete your recent Search activity, get quick access to the most relevant privacy controls in your Google Account, and learn more about how Search works with your data. [...]

We’re also providing quick access to the privacy controls in your Google Account that are most relevant as you use Search."

Bing tests new featured snippets tabs

" Microsoft is working hard to close the gap behind Google. [...] you can click on the tabs and see a snippet of the main topics of this idea. Moreover, in this example – you can see the tab 'all methods' which this headline or even words doesn’t exist in the main article.

It seems that Bing is sophisticated enough to phrase this page, show and distinguish between the first method and all the other methods."
