Getting inbound links was used to be the hot topic, either the ‘right way’ or the ‘wrong way‘, as long as you gained tons of it. Since Google introduced a couple of animals to the SEO world, everything has changed. Suddenly, it’s all about getting the right links, not just by getting them but by removing them.
Many tools have been conceived; offering you lists of good links and now giving you list of ‘bad links’ as well, and in an attempt to protect you from becoming like the next Interflora. These tools come from specific angles and all are focusing not just the links. There is a new tool that could give you a complete insight of all your links, including the ones that could help you understand your status. This is called LinkRisk.
What is LinkRisk?
The name suggests its meaning. LinkRisk tool checks at each of your link profile and analyzes the links for you, whether they are coming from good sites or bad sites. LinkRisk is a high level of backlink analysis and profiling tool that checks if your site is at risk because of the profile links.
LinkRisk tool uses an algorithm to analyze the score for your website to detect how high is the risk and helps you prevent from becoming the next Interflora. This tool pinpoints the high risk links and shows you where are they coming from, where are they pointing at and what links you need to work on to improve your site’s status. It also shows you the ‘good links’.

What Makes LinkRisk Different?
One of the major differences that set LinkRisk apart from the rest is its Riskscore. The Riskscore will give your site a score on how much risk is there for you with the inbound links you have.
When you get excited at looking on the high score that the LinkRisk generates, don’t be! Because that means the other way around. The higher score you got, the more trouble you are in. So don’t get excited yet. LinkRisk analyzes the score for each of the links on different levels, like giving each type of risk a link color. See below.
