With the launch of our new Lists in Audit today, we can bring one of the tools we’ve been using internally to our subscribers.
What is investigate?
Investigate is a tool which allows you to quickly go through a list of domains manually and decide if they are a good or bad fit for your site.
How does it work?
When you are managing your profile on Audit you have a list called Investigate. When a URL is added to this list it also appears in the Investigate product.
When you start an investigation a PopUp will appear with the site and the main browser will tell you a few bits of information about it, there will then be three buttons Approve, Remove and Unsure.
Approve – Will add the domain (and urls) to your Approve List
Remove – Will add the domain (and urls) to your Remove List
Unsure – Will come back to that domain later.
Why do I need a manual tool doesn’t LinkRisk do this for me?
LinkRisk is designed to analyse sites from an algorithmic point of view, there are some things we just won’t be able to detect (certain paid links for instance) so we always recommend you use LinkRisk as a time saving tool to segment which urls you then look at manually.
Investigate makes that process even easier.
How much does it cost?
Investigate is part of the LinkRisk Suite so as long as you have an active subscription.. it’s free!.
