NEW Disavow Tool

Evaluate and disavow links for Google

The XOVI Disavow Tool is a brand new tool in the XOVI Suite. Harmful links can damage a website's ranking in Google, making the Disavow Tool is a vital weapon when it comes to SEO. Google recently introduced it's own Disavow Tool which gives webmasters the opportunity to provide the search engine with a list of harmful links which should be ignored – or disavowed – when calculating a website's ranking. But to do this, harmful links must first be identified. The XOVI Disavow Tool evaluates links according to over 40 criteria and suggests whether a link is harmful or not. An overall risk for a domain is then provided as a percentage. The XOVI Disavow tool helps you escape Google penalties for bad backlinks and also enables to you to take a more targeted look at your competitors' link profiles in your search for new, valuable links.

FAQ: Disavow Tool

How many URLs can I analyse in the Disavow Tool in XOVI Pro?

In XOVI Pro you can analyse up to 100 URLs. This is for test purposes to give you an idea of how the Disavow Tool works and what it looks like. Remember, in order to run a genuinely comprehensive analysis of a backlink profile, the scope of the analysis must match the size of your domain.

Can I add extra URLs to the Disavow Tool in XOVI Pro?

You can add extra link coverage at any time. Prices start from €39 per month for 150,000 extra links per week. Click here for more information.

How many URLs should I analyse?

This depends on the number of external domains which provide backlinks to your site, not on the absolute number of backlinks. You can check this in the XOVI Link Tool.

Why doesn't XOVI analyse all backlinks?

Many domains possess so-called sitewide links. These are links which are found for example in footers or side panels which don't change from sub-page to sub-page and can therefore appear hundreds of times. It's not necessary to crawl all of them, so we limit our analysis to 5 sitewide URLs per external domain. If we included hundreds of sitewide links in the analysis, the “domain-wide risk” would be distorted.

Where does XOVI's Disavow Tool get its links from?

We use our own new and improved XOVI link database which we unveiled at the dmexco in Cologne in September 2015. The new database is more comprehensive and up to date than its predecessor and currently contains approx 600 billion links – all accessible for free for XOVI customers. External link sources can also be included either by manual .csv import or by entering a valid Majestic or Ahrefs API key.

How long does an analysis take?

This all depends on the size of a domain and the number of external domains providing backlinks. When you start a Disavow analysis in XOVI, we launch a new in-depth check of all existing URLs based on the number of selected criteria as well as external sources such as Google and Facebook.

Users can change the language via the settings.

FAQ: XOVI International

How big are the keyword sets for the new countries?

The size of the keyword set depends on the size of the country and the number of cities – the latter is particularly important for local searches such as hotel + city. User behaviour is also a factor. Depending on the country, we crawl between 3 and 6 million keywords.

How big are the keyword sets for the Static OVI in each country?

The Static OVI for each land is calculated using a keyord set of the 500,000 most valuable keywords in that country. The keyword set is pre-defined and is refreshed each year.

Will you be adding further countries?

XOVI will continue to expand its international capabilities. The next countries to be added include Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland and Turkey. We can't provide an exact date at this time. Don't forget, we already offer keyword monitoring in over 196 international and regional search engines in our Keyword Monitoring Tool.
