There aren’t many things more annoying that waking up one day to find out that your website has been hacked or spammed – that somehow, someone has been able to infiltrate your site with tons of spammy outbound links with high commercial anchor text. Unfortunately, if you run a large website or the attack is sophisticated enough, it can be very difficult to find those types of links.
So we created a simple tool to help you with the process. We call it our Outbound Link Spam Detector. The process is simple.
- It first uses industry APIs to identify the anchor text of outbound links on your website (grabbing the top 100)
- It then grabs the Google Adwords CPC for that anchor text to detect commercially manipulated anchors
- Finally, it reports them back to you in sorted order so you can see your most suspicious links
