I am delighted to be able to tell you that Niels Bosma, the developer of the free SEO for Excel plugin, has incorporated Majestic SEO into Excel, allowing you to bring link data and anchor text data straight into Excel along with the existing ability to use data from our partners at SEOLytics and from Google Analytics, SEO for Excel is now an incredibly powerful way to look at URL data and could save you hours every month analysing and reporting on your search efforts.
The tools is designed for paying users of Majestic SEO (this stuff isn’t free to build and maintain you know!) but you do not need an expensive account to make use of the Excel plugin. A silver subscription ($49.99/€44.99/£29.99 a month) will work fine with no long term commitments.
What you get is considerably more than “just link counts”. The plugin brings back lists of back links, starting with the strongest first. You can also bring back the anchor text spread surrounding links to any site or URL and you can even TRACK NEW AND LOST LINKS day by day.
Much of the major functionality you can do on Majestic’s main site can be replicated straight into SEO Tools for Excel. From there, you can augment any data with your own, giving you potentially limitless information about any URL or link.
It is not JUST for links
Bear in mind that for every URL on the internet, Majestic aims to have qualitative “Flow Metrics ™” associated with each one. So if you find important URLs from other places, such as the SEOLytics visibility data or the Google Analytics traffic data, you can augment all of these URLs with Citation Flow and Trust Flow metrics. These are more granular and updated more often than (say) Page Rank and are MUCH easier to import into spreadsheets.
