Linkody Launches the Link Visualizer – Never Use ‘Ctrl + F’ Again

With our new Link Visualizer, you won’t need to search for your links on the given url. Just click the link in your Monitored Link report and the page opens in a new tab. In this tab, you’ll see your link highlighted and centered.

1st. Click on any link:

2nd. The link visualizer opens and shows you the link:

Why check your links on site?

When we get a new link, one of the first things we want to do is to spot where the link is on the source page. Linkody provides tons of metrics to assess a link’s value but it’s always good to have a look at the page and see the link in its context.

So just click on any link in your Monitored Links report and check:

  • The overal page design (is it doing your brand any good?)
  • The position of the link
  • The text around the link
  • If it’s the right image (in case of an image link)

In the past, locating a link on some pages could have been difficult. Sometimes you’ll need to scroll through a lot of other links or the html source code must be searched for your url.

Now with the link Visualizer, one click is enough to visualize it in the page. When you click on a link’s url, Linkody opens the Link Visualizer by default.

A feverish look at my keywords rankings with another tool confirmed the drop from the 2nd page to the 10th page for all of them. Something like a seo penalty may have happened but still, I couldn’t believe it. Even more because we didn’t do any BH or aggressive link building. Continue reading
