After reading a few discussions around here lately and learning a little bit more about link building and what to look for to qualify a quality backlink, I was curious to know what others are using to determine this. Are there any tools or websites that do this for you? Are there specific places to look at the linking website that are quick giveaways?
Just a few things I've taken from recent discussions:
- looking at the sites linking to the site you are trying obtain a link from (still seeking a deeper explanation)
- domain age of the site
- topical relevance
- verifying the page you are getting a link on is not nofollowed
- geographical relevance
