I am developing a link program / tool which basically works to help research links faster, better and will also assess, and actually place a rating on link value from a variety of sources.
The stage of the program I am on now is analysis. The program works to spider a wide range of pages based on preset filters, and then analyzes each page, at the page and site levels, to determine Value.
While I have a number of factors already added at this time, I feel that there would be some great value in getting opinions from WebmasterWorld in terms of criteria that YOU believe is important when deciding to capitalize on any given link.
Suppose, for you example, you had a "dream link" available for a project you work with.
What criteria would that link live by? What elements would you want to see. Site level, page level.
Several members of the forum are going to help me beta test the tool out when the time comes.
Send me your criteria :) I will start the list, please continue it on if you wish from here. I do not want to add more, since I would love to see what unique ideas everyone has on what their dream link looks like.
1. Link from a related page to the topic you publish
2. Dofollow link
3. Semi or fully targeted anchor to your keyword
