My friend Mike just updated Hub Finder again. Version 3.0 now allows you to:
- grab the top 10 search results from Google, Yahoo!, or both, and compare the backlink data.
- highlight a result column using DHTML to make it easier to view potential hub pages that link at a specific resource
Additionally for those who download the source code you can adjust the settings such that you can view the co occuring backlinks from more / deeper than just the top 10 search results.
The other main features that may be worth adding are:
- showing what postion a result ranked if it was pulled from an engine (G1 or Y3 for example); and
- add a sum feature to show how many suspected hub links each authority page had.
One person, with a cool burrito blog no less, also suggested that I created a default ignore hub list for some common sites such as Geocities, but I think there are sometimes good pages on those sites (having once seen a freewebs page with natural PageRank 8 interior pages).
Do you guys think there should be a default list of sites to block? Or is it easy enough just to glance through?
Not sure how to set the default block list if I created one, but one mans hub is another mans scraper site :)
Scraper links may be an issue for many terms in some industries. Does allowing adjustable backlink depth setting work well enough at filtering those, or you do think there is a better way?
