Majestic Search Explorer Now Displays Ranking Factors

majestic-seo-logo-1In October, Majestic SEO decided to launch their own alpha search engine named Search Explorer.

Today, Dixon Jones from Majestic, announced an added feature to the search engine that the SEO community might like. The feature shows you why the search tool ranked the results as they did.

Dixon explain that not only will Search Explorer show you search results in ranking order but now will also show you a “detailed view of how, and why, they ranked the results.”

Here is a screen shot showing some of those details:


This should help SEOs understand, on some level, what it may take to rank for specific keywords, what competitors are doing in their niche and it also gives you a list of link prospects for your linking campaigns.

For more details, see their blog post.
