Majestic SEO has developed the largest index of links on the Internet through a distributed search engine over a four year period and now boast an index that is estimated to three times the size of Search giant Yahoo, with 697 billion URLs spidered (at date of article) compared to an unofficial estimate of 200 billion urls indexed by Yahoo. Google is believed to have reached a trillion (1,000 billion) URLs.
Majestic SEO’s database enables its customers use the database to understand how web sites and affiliates link to competitors. The data is used to help understand how search engines rank one website above another and is also used for a variety of other competitor and market research tasks.
Receptional will work with Majestic SEO to develop agreements with both retail users & commercial users of its’ database. Receptional will also help to develop worldwide penetration of Majestic’s services including the USA. In the partnership arrangement, Receptional’s Dixon Jones will join Majestic SEO’s founder, Alex Chudnowski, on the board of Majestic SEO.
The agreement is designed to develop the business dramatically over several years. A website redesign and commercially available API are two of the first steps in developing Majestic SEO’s markets.
