    Great post, gonna have to give that a go…the graph is pretty impresssive. I just wish you could do this straight from Linkscape and skip Excel all together!

    Great post! We do something similar here in-house, although I maybe optimising it a little based on this post and the excel provided ;)

    As well as exact match anchor information we also place additional information into our spreadsheet. Domain Age, PR, DmR, mR, Total inbound links to domain and ranking page etc. This sometimes allows us to spot trends, but more often than not just the area where each competitor is potentially beating us.

    I think the team have even added the title tag of the page and a on-page optimisation score to the process. Adding all this obviously takes more time and your post is about ‘quick analysis’. Anyway its worth it! Not only can it help steer your campaign but it also looks mightily impressive to clients.

    Great stuff!

    Thanks for the read. I have been using Open Site Explorer for some time now, but not in this way. You methods for analyzing sites are much more sophisticated than what I have done. So far that is. I will use your methods (or something similar) from now on. Looking forward to reading part 2.

    Hey Mark,

    Hey Mark,

    We’ve done this for one our clients and we found that we were crushing the top 5 SERPS for two of our clients most important keywords in Exact and Phrase match links. Our client is floating at 9 and 14 for each target keyword.

    We did a quick look at SEOMOZ’s keyword difficulty tool and found that at least the top 2 SERPs for these 2 keywords had 2 – 3 times more total linking root domains. Could this explain our stagnation in the SERPS?

    Best,

    BRLM

    Is there any reason this excel doc would not work on mac? I’m able to get the ‘link profile sheet’ from SEOmoz you refer to at the end of the post to work, fine, but not this one?

    Anyone try on Mac 2011? Tips, please …
