Bad Example Now here is an over optimized site. As you can see the main branded keyword is used way too often to be natural. At this point I already know I do not want this domain- not only is it over optimized, it probably had other spammy techniques used on it as well, which make it almost useless for me. What do I want with a penalized spam laden domain? So while looking for these backlink profiles, there are quite a few tools you can use. There are two major players that display the anchor text/backlink profile in a nice pie chart which allows for really quick digestion of the information, Majestic SEO and aHrefs. The downside to these services is they both cost money. Majestic SEO in particular has a number of free uses you can use in your account, but once those are used up your locked out from seeing more pie charts. So I set out to find a new tool, and began my search in Raven Tools, which has long been my favorite SEO monitor and management tool . Raven has a nice feature called Research Central, which aggregates data from several places and can show you great metrics into a domain. They pull data from Majestic SEO as well, and impose no data limit- but they do not have pie charts.

Download Your Links What they do have is a downloadable backlink list on a domain researched! This can be used to make a quick and dirty backlink pie chart. It is considerably less fast than using some automated tool or website, but it works for me once my free uses of Majestic SEO have expired for the day. Raven Tools Blog has a post on this exact topic, but their post is a little more high level and might actually take you longer than my methods here. A good read non the less: http://blog.raventools.com/how-to-create-aneasy-to-understand-pie-chart-from-backlink-data/ Here are the steps to get your Raven Research Central Data into a pie chart quickly 1. Log into Raven Tools. 2. Go to Research Central and look at your domain name. In this instance we will use cheapfitflops.org 3. Click on the Backlinks Tab. This will give you some charts but also a nice list of backlinks. 4. Click on the gear icon in the top right of the list and select Save All Data to .CSV This will download and save a file to your PC. Find the file, right click on it, and select Open With‌ Excel. For this demo I use Excel 2013- older versions might look different but the process is the same. 5. This will open up a nice list of backlinks. Click on the column header A and drag over to B to select both columns. 6. From the top tools menu select Insert > Pivot Chart > Pivot Chart & Table 7. Leave the Create Pivot Table options to default. 8. In the right hand column, you will see two words which correspond to the columns you highlited
