#3734 closed New feature (fixed)

integrate MajesticSEO in SEO report

Cc: Sensitive: no


Add new reports to the SEO widget to make it even more useful!

Typical API response from MajesticSEO is:


Therefore we could display:

  • External Backlinks
  • Referrer Domains
  • and the 2 custom metrics:
    • Citation flow
    • trust flow

I think we should at least display external backlink+referer domain, and maybe show the trust/citation flow with a tooltip to explain them.

Also, we should consider adding a caching layer on the SEO widget and cache in piwik_option, a given domain stats, for a given day (refresh after 24 hours). This way we will not overload the majestic seo servers, and the widget will be more responsive on refresh.

That's great. As you may know, Majestic has two indexes - Historic and Fresh. The Fresh numbers, whilst smaller, are the ones mostly used, because the Historic numbers include a load of dead links etc. My inclination would be to use Fresh - or both. Whichever is used, the user should be able be told onscreen which number it refers to.

Fresh & more accurate data would be preferred, how do we request this data from Fresh instead of Historic indexes?

Proposed spec:

  • Add "External Backlinks"
  • Add "Referrers Domains"
  • use icon with links to new window
