SEOmoz Crawls Web To Expand SEO Toolset

Rand Fishkin of SEOmoz announced they have been working for about a year on building out an index of the web, in order to be able to provide SEOs and SEMs with a toolset they have never had before.

SEOmoz has crawled and built a 30 billion page index of the web. Rand explains this index is still growing and is refreshed monthly. The purpose, “to help SEOs and businesses acquire greater intelligence about the Internet’s vast landscape.”

Part of the indexing was to build out a new tool named Linkscape. Linkscape gives SEOs “online access to the link data provided by our web index, including ordered, searchable lists of links for sites & pages, and metrics to help judge their value,” said Rand. I hope to play with it more after the SMX East conference, but with a quick trial, it seems pretty comprehensive.

SEOmoz also launched a new design and has given PRO members more options and features.
