is pretty objective and based of some algorithm
I am trying to find a way to rank the quality of my inbound links...
“Negatives include if the links of those who are linking to you come primarily from directories, link exchange pages (can be an indicator of three way reciprocal link schemes too), no-followed comments on blogs, are one or two clicks away from SEO related sites, wordpress template links, and footer links. These are things that can make a site non-authoritative and lose it's ability to rank well, and as a consequence represent a poor link for your site.”
“Some quality indicators are negative, some are positive. The best links are the ones that have backlinks from overwhelmingly the same niche. A good sign is if there are links from news sites as well as independent links from forums and blog posts. “But I agree that the domain with quality links has a better “staying power” at the top.
How would you be able to offer inexpensive SEO to clients if you need to spend all this time analyzing links?
That is a shame that small to medium sized businesses with small budgets basically get screwed.
