Update to the way we handle the graphs
As you will have noticed the much imitated LinkRisk donut charts give you a very quick and easy insight into each of the main metrics and into the summary data within your Audit profile. Until today the main LinkRisk donut, thats the one that looks like this: –
Showed every active link but only counted one vote per site linking in. This prevented the graph from being overtly influenced by the presence of a sitewide link within the profile. We did however leave the other graphs counting all active links at a rate of one vote per link.
Today we are changing that stance and making all our main graphs show only one vote per entry. This means that if you looked at the top 100 anchor text donut yesterday and had a sitewide link with the word “womens shoes” from a partner you would have seen that anchor text dominate the chart. From today we will count that sitewide link as one anchor in the chart so the chart becomes more diverse and in our opinion more representative of the true link graph for that profile.
This also applies to things like the TLD donut and any of our reports.
We hope that this change helps increase further the accuracy of your link audit work and gives even greater insight into the current position of any link profile run through Audit.
It also helps pave the way for something we have in the pipeline that I know you will love, we cant reveal any details on that just yet but I can reveal that it will help you amp up the automated management of any link profile and moves us another step towards a major goal we have for 2015.
