Introducing SEOPress Insights: backlinks and rankings directly in your WordPress

In SEO, the terms “on-site” and “off-site” come up very often. The first, the “on-site“, consists of technically optimizing your website: your content, your meta title, description, code quality, performance, etc. SEOPress Free and PRO allow you to greatly facilitate your task by automating this aspect as much as possible and by applying the necessary code for Google without programming.

The second term, “off-site“, is anything that happens outside of your website.

  • What sites made backlinks to my site (we call this backlinks)?
  • Are they of quality?
  • Or on the contrary, do some sites try to harm me by generating hundreds of links from very poor quality sites (ie negative SEO)?
  • If I type this expression into Google, does my site come out on the first page?
  • Are my various “on-site” actions bearing fruit?

These questions, which any webmaster working on this content to acquire more traffic and generate more conversions, now have answers, or rather a software solution.

After more than 9 months of work, we are proud to present you SEOPress Insights!

Track your ranking in Google

SEOPress Insights allows you to follow up to 50 keywords / expressions per site, daily, directly from your WordPress administration, in order to know:

  • their positions in Google
  • the evolution of the ranking according to a chosen period
  • the URL associated with the entered keyword
  • the search volume of the keyword
  • the CPC, cost per click, for the keyword in dollars
  • the competition level of the keyword in percentage

We also allow you to choose from 27 Google locations to track (eg,,, …).

Our keyword tracking tool allows you to identify trends, content that is growing in popularity, and those that are losing, to launch appropriate actions on your site.

Monitor your backlinks

Backlinks are a key factor for your SEO. With SEOPress Insights, we list the top 1000 backlinks per referring domain of your WordPress site. Updated every week, you will be able to analyze, follow, sort, classify, each backlink efficiently according to several criteria:

  • Source url
  • URL anchor
  • The target URL (destination)
  • Site language
  • Nofollow? (i.e. the backlink can be tracked by Google to take advantage of part of the popularity of this site)
  • Citation Flow (Majestic brand): score between 0 and 100 which measures the fairness of the link or the “power” of the website or link
  • Trust Flow (Majestic brand): score between 0 and 100 to assess the trust of a site. 0 being a questionable site.
  • Last seen date
  • The site topic to categorize your links / sites

These data will make it possible to know for example if a link exchange is respected, if the nofollow attribute is not present, to detect negative SEO, to establish new partnerships with sites of the same category and quality (via Trust Flow and Citation Flow etc) as yours.

Plus, every week, 4 metrics will also be updated concerning the state of your site:

  • the total number of backlinks
  • the total number of referring domains
  • the Citation Flow
  • the Trust Flow

The graph will help you track the trend of your site over the weeks.
