  • If the page being linking to is indexable or not
  • If the page being linking to is canonical or not
  • If the link is set to be ‘nofollow’
  • If the link is set to be ‘follow’

 

Examples of how Linking Data Can Be Used

The examples below show how this data can be used for SEO.

 

Example 1: Identify Pages with Lots of Outgoing Links

Pages with very high numbers of internal links distribute that authority in smaller packets than pages with fewer links. You can use this metric to find these pages, to manually review. This can also provide a good indication of the minimum links on a page based on the menu and footer links.
