Discover You Incoming linksObtaining inbound links is probably one of the most difficult and complex SEO activities requiring a considerable investment of time and effort. To achieve success in link building must be creative, but also measure the initiatives relate, whether the effectiveness of strategies or the type of content on your site attracting its share of inbound links.
Here is some news that will therefore joy SEO specialists looking for data and information that will allow them to increase their efficiency on their strategies for inbound links.
Indeed, Google is now at your disposal a very interesting new feature in Google Webmaster Tools to identify the most recent inbound links acquired through your website.

Available under Traffic / Links to Your Site / Your Most linked content / more, now you the option to download in CSV or Google Doc Format list of newly discovered and links pointing to your site:

In the above report, I also was surprised to discover information about links discovered in 2009, so Google seems to want to share with you a complete history of the more recent ones.
How to use this data?
Even if it is a new feature that deserves to be tested in the long term, I see three points could be very interesting for SEO specialists:
  • Know what your strategies inbound links that relate: Most SEO experts have different tactics inbound links that run at the same time, and it can sometimes be difficult to identify those that have the best performance. With this tool, you will be able to quickly understand the efforts converting incoming links.
  • Quickly detect suspicious links: Negative SEO is piracy tactics used by your competitors in order to harm your natural position. One of these tactics is to point links from low quality to your site so you do penalize the table of recent discovered inbound links enable you to detect quickly if suspicious links pointing to your site are newly present in your profile.
  • Determine incoming links obtained following your efforts 2.0: The report that I tested up here I shared inbound links from communities Google+, Twitter, Facebook and others. Although you probably already use tools watches in your communities, you will share this tool precisely what content or interactions with generated by the very fact of the entries including an address to one of your pages.
Of course, it is impossible to know whether Google's cache some of your links, or see if it is only a sample. In the past Google has always been reluctant to share data of inbound links, they occupy a prominent place in the algorithm.
My favorite tool to date is Majestic SEO, which in addition to providing competitor analysis, classifies links by date of discovery. Google now offers the same option, it will be interesting to compare the data and see the accuracy of this new feature.
For now you can use these tools to good escients to maximize the success of your strategies inbound links ;)
