External links

This section contains examples of links from other resources that lead to your site. It includes the links from pages known to the robot. However, some links might not be displayed in the section.

The Yandex robot regularly checks if external links are available and valid. Depending on the results of these checks, this section can contain the following information:

  • The URL of the page that has a link to your site.
  • Link text on the resource.
  • The SQI of the resource.
  • The URL of the page that the link leads to.
  • The date when the Yandex robot found a link on the resource.
  • The date when the link's information was last updated.

This information allows you to track new links and identify broken links. You can also generate a separate report about removed links and get information about removal dates.

By default, the sorting is based on the date when the links were found or removed. You can also sort data by SQI indicator.

Note. For one site, up to 200,000 external links and up to 10,000 removed ones can be displayed.

Use the Group by siteoption to see the number of links (current or removed) leading to your site and to find the resource with the most links. In this case, the data is sorted by the number of links on the resource.

If there are a lot of links found in the list, you can filterthe links you want to track.

All external links found by the robot are available for downloading in an archive (the archive contains a TSV file).
