Search Engine Reach

Search Engine ReachSearch Engine Reach in SEO DIVER analyses the performance of one or more (proprietary or competitor) domains within the organic search over the course of the last few months. This is an aggregated value based on a panel of real users that is calculated from various factors (including ranking positions, Universal Search modules, customised adjustments, and local and regional differences in the search results).


The resulting curve on the graph indicates how often the domain appeared in the user’s organic search results and provides information on the number of times that access is to be expected (percentage of organic users). In total, up to eight domains can be directly compared.


Experience the benefits of Search Engine Reach versus statistically calculated visibility index graphs for yourself and gain real insight into the traffic that your competitors’ domains are likely achieving.

Domain Details:

Domain DetailsThe domain details provide a quick overview of a domain’s key SEO figures. In addition to the average values for Search Engine Reach, Search Engine Perception and Static Visibility, you can also find homepage’s Google PageRank, the number of indexed pages and the average traffic that the website receives (on a scale from 1 to 10) here. The actual server location, the web host, the IP address and the domain’s age are also factors that are often of interest. In terms of social media data, we show the website’s mentions/links on Twitter and the homepage’s Facebook likes. A list of the subdomains relevant to this website rounds off the domain details.


Backlink Details:

Backlink DetailsThe ‘Backlink Details’ provide some statistics that can indicate at a glance whether the backlink profile is healthy or perhaps a bit peaky. If these data are unavailable at some point, a look at the LinkCheck tool might be helpful (it can be found as a shortcut above the heading of the ‘Backlink Details’ box).
Follow backlinks were exclusively used to determine the key backlink figures. On this basis, you can view the website’s host, domain, IP, class C and ASN popularity. The ratio of homepage links to deep links and text links to image links, as well as the top five link texts, top five server locations, top five TLDs and subject matter of the linked pages, and the most frequent link targets top off the backlink details. The icing on the cake is the backlink authority score, which shows you how strong a link profile is in comparison to the link profiles of other websites (the higher, the better).


Network Domains:

If the box with the network domains appears, this is an indication that the Search Engine Reach displayed is based on several subdomains of the same host name. This overview provides users with information on the subdomains that were considered during the calculation of the Search Engine Reach. In some cases, several hundred subdomains are included in the calculation, which can sometimes take up to three minutes.
