Overall Satisfaction with Majestic SEO

Being that Majestic SEO is a link-based SEO tool I found it's most effective use (aka when I'll subscribe) happens to be when I'm assisting in an SEO recovery.

When reviewing a backlink profile I will useMajestic SEO in addition to the Google Web Master Tools "latest links" export feature to ensure I've got a complete scope of my clients inbound link profiles. It's amazing to see what Majestic will have picked up that Google Web Master Tools hasn't yet. Without a doubt if you're reviewing a website's inbound link profile Majestic is a Must.

  • Extensive database of links. Coupled with GWMT link export will provide a near perfect link audit.
  • Provide a phenomenal historical link index, when picking up new SEO clients the historical data will prove to be vital in assessing previous optimization engagements.
  • Link your GWMT account to Majestic to receive free reports for all your verified GWMT websites.
  • PDF Reporting! I need not say more.
  • Needs much better support. Contact forms are simply not enough.
  • Efficient monitoring of backlinks and proactive link removals allow us to retain clients throughout algorithm changes whilst also opening up a new sales channel for SEO recoveries.

Amazingly, the ability to receive free reports for websites your own is something I don't see it's competitors offering anytime soon.
I would highly recommend Majestic SEO to any agency, or consultant. It is a vital tool in any digital marketers toolbelt. Remember, if you have your GWMT account linked to Majestic any websites verified in your GWMT receive free reports!
