"Very thorough and helpful"

What do you like best?

The metrics produced by Majestic are very helpful when trying to sell new clients on our SEO services. TF and CF are standards in the industry and have replaced Moz's DA as the #1 go-to domain metric. The software is easy to use and is about as current as any other in this space.

What do you dislike?

Like any SEO software, there is always a concern that the information is up to date and reliable. I trust Majestic as much or more than any other.

"Great data and a useful API"

What do you like best?

Majestic offers more backlink data than any other tool I have user, with reliable quality metrics that let you quickly gauge a score for individual links, as well as the overall quality of any website's backlink profile. It's easy to use and fast, with downloadable reports and CSV files

What do you dislike?

The API can be very confusing as there are lots of different calls that sometimes overlap, so it can be difficult to figure out the number of calls required for your needs. The naming of these calls sometimes changes in their documentation, which makes things even harder to understand.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Majestic is a tool that I use all of the time, for both their online tool and the API. We use it to help our customers to get a feel for how well their backlink profile stacks up against that of their competitors, as well as showing them which links may be more harm than good.

What SEO solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Majestic and its TF CF factors"

What do you like best?

The best feature of Majestic is the Trust Factor (TF) and Citation Factor (CF) numbers - as of right now, they are the MOST accurate SEO numbers in the industry. Back in the day, it used to be Moz's DA PA, but they have stopped updating it and most of the time it gives of erroneous numbers that mislead.

I also LOVE their Chrome plugin which allows me to quickly see the TF CF of any site I am currently on. Bravo!

What do you dislike?

I have only 2 issues with Majestic, one small and one larger:

1. (small) It's not exactly a pretty or well-designed site. Pretty archaic in its appearance - unlike its competition.

2. (large) While Majestic's blog is pretty excellent, they fail to provide adequate, easily found PDFs or training to help new people understand what TF and CF is, and other functions that are useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you understand what TF and CF really are. It's not so much about how high they are...but where they are together. I'd not suggest a cit that has a TF of 21 but a CF of 2 or vice versa. I'd rather see them about the same. So a 16 and 16 would make me happy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This helps me choose which places to guest post, which bloggers to network with and ultimately, where relationships should be built. Furthermore, it helps me to track my own site, where Majestic thinks I am in terms of trust and citation ratios, and helps me see what backlinks are pointing to my website. Another important feature for me is the anchor text ratio. That little pie graph helps to make sure I am not over optimized and helps protect me from potential penalties.

"Essential tool for link building, SEO, and online success"

What do you like best?

You could almost use Majestic for everything as it helps you to monitor a website's online presence. Search engines rely heavily on links still, so it's essential to know what's working and what's not, being able to compare your website with others, discover new linking opportunities, and fix problems.

What do you dislike?

Some of the tools aren't intuitive, but Majestic has easy videos, tutorials, help files, and even live account managers who will walk you through whatever you need help with. Someone called me from their headquarters in England and has followed up with real life, practical examples to help me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're brand new to SEO or link building, get an account rep on the phone and get a guided tour. Otherwise, you can also do a self-guided tour with their help tutorials to get started. Make sure you sign up so you can track progress with their new campaign manager tool and analyze competitors over which you don't have control.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any drop in keyword rankings or traffic could be the result of links. Majestic helps me to easily identify good links, potentially harmful links, competitor strengths, and even supply great reporting insights to my clients so I can tell them what I'm working on. I've helped clients avoid penalties and realize better traffic to their site through insights from Majestic.

"Quick and Easy Technical SEO"

What do you like best?

The Chrome plug-in is the quickest and easiest way to get a quick overview of a client or competitor's website authority according to backlinks and referring domains.

What do you dislike?

The metrics differ from other technical SEO tools. This is easily overcome by comparing data within a tool rather than across tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get the Chrome extension. It is an excellent quick reference tool; I have used it in client meetings to answer data-based questions with immediacy.

"Great tool for analyzing backlink profile"

What do you like best?

The fact that links are grouped into types and the fact that they have trust and citation. Those two metrics alone give me a tangible number to grasp onto to be able to gauge the quality of the backlink profile of our site. At the same time I can do the same thing for our competitors to figure out where we should be looking for our next link building campaign.

What do you dislike?

A lot of times the tool will tell you you have bad links but it has no idea at the fact that you dissavowed them so you have to be conscious about the fact that this is not true just for your site but for all sites it monitors. In other words the numbers across the board are impacted and I have to cross check against our list every time I do a site cleanup. I also wish their was a way to integrate this software with our google search console to really capitalize on evaluating your backlink profile.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would strongly use this software but make sure you couple it with other data points to get the big picture since they do not crawl the entire web.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Evaluating our backlink profile and that impacts all SEO efforts. The fact you have a way of monitoring your site through trust and citation is fantastic. Overall it's telling me if I have the right links on an aggregate view of the system.

"Tool that Satisfies an SEO's Link Research Needs"

What do you like best?

Majestic.com has been a premiere link building service for me for the last couple of years. I have used it to look into key link metrics when analyzing my own links as well as client links. The "trust flow" and "citation flow" are famous in the link building world and majestic coined these terms. Majestic really provides me with great insights to the type of link research I need.

What do you dislike?

The one main thing I don't like about Majestic is that the update doesnt come in that frequently. I will be building some links for a month or so, and they dont start to populate into majestic's database for weeks afterwards. So its hard to engage more instant gratification when doing link building and research.

Also, it is very easy for websites to block the majestic bot from crawling the site. Therefore getting truely accurate link data can be hard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you really want to dive into a great backlink software, then I recommend majestic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a seasoned SEO professional, so I am looking to gain more organic website traffic with majestic. By analyzing the links, I can see what my competition has done in regards to online SEO PR and duplicate their processes to get the job done.

I have benefitted from these problem solving by becoming a more established marketer within my network and have gained better business intelligence for the clients that I am working for.

"A Powerful Tool Specialized in Backlinks"

What do you like best?

With strong backlink index, the backlink profile they create about any website is detailed and better than any other tool.

The metrics and visualizations to analyze backlinks data is something which makes this tool different. Even the backlink history for 5 years helps to understand your SEO journey as well.

Another feature I like is the trust flow & citation flow which actually helps to analyze the quality of backlinks.

What do you dislike?

Where in the same price other tools offer many other useful SEO features including backlinks, this tool is only limited to backlinks. This is true that they are best in backlinks analysis but an all in one SEO tool will be more useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you spend majority of time on SEO especially on backlinks then use this tool. This tool is good to analyze your competitor's backlink profile but I will recommend to use only "LITE" package as that's enough.

Remember, this tool is only limited to backlinks so don't expect much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had very few links and that also of poor quality. We started doing link analysis of competitors and successfully created a backlink profile full of quality and enough quantity.

As I said, no other tool can give you such a thorough analysis so definitely you can improve your keyword rankings and brand visibility with this tool. With the ability to search fresh index or historical index, they dominate on others.

"One of the Industry Leaders in Link Research for SEO"

What do you like best?

Good data quality overall and an easy to understand UI. The price is pretty competitive compared to the solutions offered by other providers in this sectors.

What do you dislike?

While the data quality is good, according to my experience Ahrefs and LRT get you even better and thorough data. However, these services also come with a higher cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for solid link data at a competitive price, Majestic can be a really good solution. If you are looking for perfect data quality, go with Ahrefs or LRT.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We mainly use Majestic to analyze our competitors' backlink profiles when we do SEO. We also use Majestic to get an idea about how much of an authority a site is before we buy backlinks.

"Excellent for competitor comparison"

What do you like best?

The link profile fight makes comparing two sites quick and easy. Simply add in two domains and get a full report on how the two match up. You can gather a quick understanding on two sites.

If you're looking to compare 5 sites the back link history checker allows users to add in 5 sites and see how they all stack up. Detailed charts help show users what's happening.

Lost back links is a life saver. Constantly links are being removed, pages changed, etc. With this tool you can monitor what is happening with back links to your site. If a link is lost users can see where it was located and when it was last crawled

What do you dislike?

Link ranking metrics are subjective. Trust flow and citation flow are linking metrics created by Majestic so it is important for users to examine all links themselves, you may disagree with the results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is very similar to other back linking tracking sites on the market. It is recommending to try out each one of these softwares and find which one fits your needs. Ease of use, reports, crawl times, etc change from site to site. Test them all before making a decision.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the SEO world we are always tracking to see what competitors are doing and where we may be losing opportunities. With Majestic we can check daily to see where new links are being added, where we may be losing opportunities and compare that to the competition.

"Great data, but still figuring out all the ways to use it"

What do you like best?

Everyone said Majestic was the gold standard in terms of backlink tracking, and I'd agree that the robust-ness of their data certainly fits that description. Their Trust Flow is really the only domain-level metric I care about besides just overall SEO visibility. Using them to find worthwhile sites to target for linkbacks or to find domains in our backlink profile that are spammy is easy and straightforward.

What do you dislike?

It seems like, with all the great data that Majestic has, there is so much more I'd be able to do with it. For example, they have this concept of a Topical Trust Flow that gives domains a score in a certain subject area. I'd love to use this to find the best domains to target in a certain vertical, but you can't search domains by topic. Or, exploring the long list of backlinks/linking domains on majestic.com isn't really doable for a large profile—you have to download them and explore in Excel. Reporting on their metrics is similar—they only recently added a view of Trust Flow trending over time (which is great, because I was recording the scores in a spreadsheet for awhile), but that view isn't very dynamic or slice/dicable. Lastly, they have a Historic Index that doesn't have data from recent crawls and a Fresh Index that only has data from recent crawls. It is very confusing trying to understand when is the best time to use which and how to bridge metrics you pull from both.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Best backlink checker there is"

What do you like best?

Majestic has by far the best backlink data of any tool I've seen. You can see backlinks to any of your own sites or any of your competitor sites. I love the reports that show cumulative link growth over time. It's one of the best ways to show clients that link building is critical to them; plus, when you categorize links coming into their conpetitors it tends to light a fire under them.

What do you dislike?

Some of the metrics are either too difficult to understand or not very meaningful. I wish they could have more simple options and greatly improve their user interface--reports still look very dated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You won't find a better backlink checker, especially for competitive backlinks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to know backlinks to our site, which Google Webmaster Tools only shows a subject of, as well as backlinks to competitor sites, so we can keep track of the competition.

"Best backlinks tool for non-US countries"

What do you like best?

The backlinks database for majestic is the best for non-US based companies. Have tried most of the other big tools, and while they many have excellent tools and easier interface, the accuracy of the data just isn't there yet.

What do you dislike?

What I currently see as short-comings in the tool are very likely my own inexperience with the tool. have been using for less than 12 months and have not invested the time yet to go thru the tutorials - my bad.

Would like to see an ability to upload a disavow file and have own site scores recalculated based on that. I know it changes the playing field for comparing against competitors, but it also enables us to see if the pruning is having the desired effect (apart from what we see in the search results - the ultimate test).

"Useful tool for backlink analysis "

What do you like best?

Generates a pretty thorough back link history, provide insightful analytic data, and it includes both fresh and historical links. Probably the most comprehensive, powerful backlink tool.

What do you dislike?

Some of the backlinks it finds have been removed, so it doesn't always provide the most accurate picture... Also I'm not sure I would rank it high on ease of use -- I had to refer to the tutorials and FAQ quite heavily before I got a hang of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider streamlining the product -- it has so many tools that ease of use suffers. The interface is not the most attractive.. could use work. And, a serious investment in the tools accuracy -- especially given the price of the product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to provide a better analysis of competitors, develop new and more informed SEO strategies, improved link building, and generally running backlink searches.

What do you like best?

The data that Majestic provides is trustworthy, extremely detailed and easy to understand and glean insights. Majestic also takes data a step further and provides easy to understand and colorful graphs that are can be show to clients.

What do you dislike?

Majestic at heart is a paid service and while they provide some data for non-subscribers I would like them to provide more. Even as a paid subscriber it was easy to get continual data updates week over week, reports could be setup but this was timely.

"Most innovative link research tool"

What do you like best?

I do like the most prominent features: Hugest index, lots of analysis options, etc. But the reason I like this platform is that they are constantly innovating: From releasing their own search engine (allowing us to understand search much better) to gamification components just a few weeks ago. They always have great features coming up!

What do you dislike?

I am on Retina display and some of the icons blur to me... Not sure if that deserves mentioning here (I have nothing bad to say about the platform!) but that's my major pet peeve. Other than that, I an not really sure what else I could mention here...

Recommendations to others considering the product

In all honestly, I don't think there can be too many link research tools. All of them will let you discover more links and get a better insights in competitor tactics. Even if you are happy with your current tool, give Majestic a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"The Gold Standard in the Reverse Index of the Web"

What do you like best?

The Fresh Index and the Site Comparison tools are among the strongest for back link proifling and tracking over time.

What do you dislike?

While Majestic is one of the strongest, most established brands in the market for all-things backlink, they are behind the times when it comes to tracking and trending social share metrics at the URL level. A result, I feel this tool is only 50% relevant to the work I do in SEO in 2015.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If a robust backlink profile (and all its history) are important to your research, you can't go wrong with Majestic. It's the Gold Standard for backlinks. However, if you need to quantify and track social sharing metrics and other signals, a tool like Ahrefs is probably a better investment.

"The tool I use most in my Digital Marketing Activities"

What do you like best?

Majestic is a platform of tools and services created to satisfy the needs of todays digital marketing professionals. With Majestic your web marketing team can run analyses to monitor your website from malicious attacks and even identify hacking.

Digital marketing teams can use the data as an input to their big data models and derive pro-active strategies to network with other sites: a link is like a relationship - you want good relationships (=links) to improve your online reputation and increase your authority.

Trust Flow, Citation Flow, and Topical Trust are key parameters which offer strategic insights on the quality of a website. I have found nothing which can compete in this field.

What do you dislike?

Majestic is a sophisticated tool - you'll need some training to get the most out of all the tools available. At first the interface might not be too user friendly but it doesn't take too long to understand how it works. There are a number of videos available which can walk you through and bring you up to speed on using Majestic to make your job easier and faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Without doubt the most comprehensive link analytics tool on the market today. For staff with a non technical background the learning curve may be steep but well worth the effort with immediate return on backlink knowledge and actionable data to build on for digital marketing purposes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

The amazing site explorer gives me a detail analysis of all the links to my website and also the competitors. I even like using Search Explorer, Backlink History, Keyword Checker and Compare Tool. Out of all, the Trust Flow and Citation Flow is something which comes super handy in checking any website details at a glance.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much as of now, but I would love to see some features to be added in like SEMRush, where the list of all the keywords and site metrics show up. It will be a dream coming true to see that happen!

May be they can add a spam count or risk factor of each backlink in future. Like how Moz has launched it recently and cognitiveseo.com who had it from the beginning.

In a lot of our powerpoint presentations for clients, we use Majestic in the backlink analysis section. We like providing them with metrics such as trust flow, citation flow, and referring domains. Majestic seems to update their product frequently and are usually on top of the latest trends.

What do you like best?

Their linking index is huge and seems to find more than Moz's OSE & AHrefs. We tend to combine from a variety of sources and then remove duplicates. We tend to use this most for backlink analyses and finding problem sites.

What do you dislike?

Interface is a little dated and their charts would be better if we could edit them or tweak the display. The graphs and charts don't mesh well in our presentations.

"Comprehensive back link analysis tool"

What do you like best?

There is a fresh index which shows links which their crawler recently picked up on and a historic index which shows links they have seen from a while ago. This allows for a high number of links to be found by this tool. This is a great tool for back link analysis.

What do you dislike?

This tool is more likely to show links which are no longer live than other link analysis tools. This makes the tool less accurate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not trust all of the links that are shown on MajesticSEO. This tool is good for doing large link analysis and can show the general profile of your site however there tend to be more inaccuracies in this tool. Clique hunter is a great tool to use for competitive back link analysis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using this tool we are able to analyze back links pointing to our clients site. This allows us to see which links we have and can show us lower quality links that we would need to remove so that they are not hurting our clients website.

"Great for SEO"

What do you like best?

Gives an accurate snapshot of a website's SEO health as far as backlinks, referring domains, trust flow, citation flow, and a monthly snapshot of new links acquired. It's also useful for competitor research -- to mine their links and referring domains, and to give a client an accurate view into how their website is doing compared to competitors.

The tool is available at a low cost, >$100, and you have the ability to save reports.

What do you dislike?

The site design certainly isn't pretty and some of the information isn't intuitive based on the labels. The tutorials and FAQs help.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's used most for determining a site's SEO strength as far as backlinks, the referring domains, the authority of those referring domains, and for competitor research.

"A helpful snapshot of your backlinks"

What do you like best?

Majestic's banklink analysis (and basic visualization) is very helpful. It's super easy to use, and you can even get reports from the free version of the tool.

What do you dislike?

While informative, the Majestic tool isn't what you'd call pretty. Meaning, you can't take a visual and drop it directly into any sort of client-facing deck, but you'll be able to digest information fairly quickly.

Also, the indicator that shows whether a link that's in the report is still live or not can be less than 100% accurate. That's a bit frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've used Majestic as a secondary SEO tool on and off for a few years now. If you're looking for backlinks, the free version is a great place to start.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While other tools have features that will analyze your backlinks, Majestic definitely seems to have taken a backlink-first approach to SEO.

"Best tool for Link Building"

What do you like best?

I really like the analysis and for basic link audits. Overall, the tool is very powerful in terms of backlink exploration and building a reputable link building strategy for clients.

What do you dislike?

It speaks to the high-knowledge base and not to other tiers of the corporation, this meaning, that is is very difficult to understand if you are not on the marketing or SEO team

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for link building. Not easy to compare backlinks to competitor sites

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Powerful tools - worth every dollar"

What do you like best?

Search Explorer provides additional capability. I can see which sites are ranking for the keywords in the niche I am researching. That gives me value in a number of ways.

What do you dislike?

That's a tough question. I love Majestic. One thing I would like to see more of is tools aimed at helping me discover potential keywords based on supply/demand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go into it with an open mind. Don't try to defend your present solution. Give Majestic a chance to show the depth and width of analysis the platform can provide. You may be amazed!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help my clients rank better in the SERP and identify/produce content more suitably aimed at their special audience. Majestic allows me to get work done quicker and better.

"Biggest link index I've come across "

What do you like best?

The sheer amount of indexed backlinks/data. Additionally, the Clique Hunter tool makes reverse engineering and competitive backlink analysis a breeze.

What do you dislike?

The "historic" index does not tell you if they are still live or not; this would be expecially helpful when using the Clique Hunter tool. Just that they have been live at one point in time. I also would like to see a fresh/historic combined index/export, avoiding the need to two separate exports every time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will not find a more in depth backlink index than Majestic SEO. They also make competitor backlink analysis a breeze with their Clique Hunter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Majestic SEO's backlink data for our client's backlink analysis/removal and the Clique Hunter tool for competitive backlink analysis and reverse engineering.

"Great software in your arsenal of SEO tools!"

What do you like best?

Really accurate, and pretty exhaustive data on site back links

What do you dislike?

The UI could do with a refresh - it's a bit dated compared to slick SaaS tools were used to these days.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are similar tools around, and all have pretty good data but often I've found they compliment one another. No one has a complete dataset of every link on the web! If you can afford to, use it in conjunction with other such as Ahrefs and Moz

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Competitor analysis and back link opportunity discovery. Also helps with back link audits on client sites to make quick and accurate judgements when cleaning back link profiles

"Comprehensive SEO tool for little to no cost. "

What do you like best?

MajesticSEO provides detailed breakdown of link analysis for a website, including both fresh and historic index to suit each individual's need. I also like that this is a service provided free for anyone who sign up for an account with them.

What do you dislike?

With the recent Penguin updates, Google is looking at backlinks according to the type of websites these links are originating from. Therefore, it will be great to add a feature that breaks down a website's link profile according to the type of websites it comes from, such as, blogs, blog comments, forums, websites, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can gather detailed link data for sites that you own, but to get access to other third party sites that you don't have backend access to, you might have to opt for paid plans with MajesticSeo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this tool to do backlink analysis, or competitor analysis. It is a great tool, and takes a minimum time to gather useful information for users.

"The Most Comprehensive, but Not the Most Accurate, Backlink Tool"

What do you like best?

It tends to have the most number of possible backlinks pointing back to a client's website.

What do you dislike?

It often reports backlinks that have long since been removed, greatly reducing the accuracy of the reporting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MajesticSEO is useful for now, but unless they improve the accuracy, it's not going to be useful forever. Or, you'll need to run the links found by MajesticSEO through another tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Majestic SEO is used for backlink analysis in order to remove bad backlinks from penalized websites, or websites at risk for a penalty.

The only thing I have discovered that I would choose to improve is to crawl the web more often.

This tool greatly helps in developing new SEO strategies, I have been able to 'wow' clients with additional information like the anchor text distribution tool.

"Great tools for analyzing trusted web sources"

What do you like best?

I particularly like the pie chart showing anchor text variations to see if a site is over optimized for specific keywords.

What do you dislike?

I love everything about this tool set except for the costs, which is for me too high.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Seeing if a site may be penalize for over optimization or if competitors may have sent a bunch of crappy links at a client site to get them penalized by Google. I also personally use it to purchase expired domains and I want to check out back link profiles and Trust & Citation flows of the domains I'm looking at.
