This is a SUPER in-depth review of Majestic SEO.
In this review I’ll break down everything you need to know, including:
- Majestic SEO’s key features
- Pricing and plans
- How it compares to other link building tools
- Whether or not it’s worth the price tag
- Lots more
So without further ado, let’s dive right in.
What Is Majestic SEO?
Majestic SEO is an SEO software tool that specializes in link analysis.
So unlike Ahrefs, SEMrush or Moz Pro, Majestic is all about backlinks.
In other words: Majestic isn’t an all-in-one tool that does keyword research, SEO site audits and on-page SEO analysis.
It’s 100% focused on backlinks.
And, because they focus on link analysis above all else, they claim to have the world’s best backlink checker.
I’m going to put that claim to the test a little bit later.
But for now, I did want to point out that Majestic is first and foremost a link building tool.
With that out of the way, let’s take a look at Majestic.com’s key features.
Site Explorer Summary
The Site Explorer summary is where you get a high-level overview of a website’s link profile.
On this page you can see a laundry list of metrics on the website you just analyzed, including:
- Trust Flow
- Citation Flow
- Topical Trust Flow
- External Backlinks
- Referring Domains
- Referring IP Addresses
- Crawled URLs
- Indexed URLs
- And more
In other words: this page is designed for you to scan a site’s link profile and see key link metrics (like Trust Flow).
And if you choose “subdomain”, “Path” or “URL”, from the dropdown menu, you can get detailed link data on a specific page.
The “Topics” report is Majestic’s way of figuring out what a website is all about.
What’s interesting about this feature is that they don’t determine your site’s topic based on the content that you publish. Instead, it’s based on where you get your backlinks from.
For example, Backlinko is a marketing blog. And most of my backlinks come from sites in the “Computers / Internet / Web Design and Development” and “Business / Marketing and Advertising” niches.
This is an interesting feature that I haven’t seen in any other link building tool.
And I actually think there’s something to it. Google probably uses the websites that link to you to figure out what your site is about. And to figure out your authority on that topic.
For example, let’s say that your site is about health and fitness. And you get most of your links from other health and fitness websites.
Well, to search engines like Google, this confirms that your site is about that topic. And that
