  1. Thanks for the very detailed post. Tried everything but Majestic and after reading this, super keen to take it for a spin.

  2. Nice write up Alex. You know Majestic is running a “win an iPad” competition right now for anyone presenting ways to use the Data? If you haven’t entered this post, you probably should!

    • Hey Dixon,

      Thanks for checking out my post! Actually I did know about the contest and have submitted it. I noticed later that the rules mentioned something about 600 words or less so I wasn’t sure if it would qualify.

  3. I think Majestic SEO is cool to see where I stack up against my competitors with backlinks.

    Trouble is… what’s the point! In every category on Majestic, I have more .edu, .org, high PR backlinks, anchors, etc… then my competitors!

    I have optimized my site with keys words, meta, htaccess, sitemapss, headers, etc!

    Bing has rewarded me for my efforts but Google is slow to do so. I think it is cool that I have great backlinks but it is not paying off extremely well with the Googlian SERP yet.

  4. Hey,
    I have observed that many Digital marketers recommend improving the Majestic Trust Flow metric as it has some of the best SEO benefits.

    So far, I have tried building backlinks from High-quality sites and Internal Linking.
    Could you suggest me some other ways to improve the Majestic Trust Flow metric?

    • Hi Ellie, since Trust Flow is based on the trust, the number of incoming links, and the relevancy of the linking site, the best way to improve your own Trust Flow is to get links from those types of high-authority sites.
