Majestic SEO WordPress Plugin

By Dixon Jones August 17, 2010

Dan Taylor of Just Search has developed a WordPress plugin of our back-link checker.

wppluginThe plugin sits in your WordPress dashboard, showing by default the back-links discovery in cumulative view, giving WordPress users a warm, fuzzy feeling every time they log in to their WordPress back end.

It’s a great idea and thank to Dan for developing it. By default, the charts bring up your own blog’s back-links, but clicking on the screen sends you to the main back-link checker, where you can compare and contrast and generally play around with the settings as usual.

I just uploaded this initial version to grab a screenshot for you. At the moment, since I use two columns on my dashboard by default and my eyes are so poor that the resolution on the screen means the chart overlaps into the next column slightly. this is fixable by setting your dashboard settings to single column or (presumably) by altering your screen resolution, but I would guess that this will be a bug fix at some point if the tool gets any take up.

The tool also shows back-links discovery, rather than my preferred graph of referring domains discovery. Perhaps in a future version, Dan, you could add this as an optional setting? I guess at the same time you could also add competitor domains into the mix, so that users can see how their blog is progressing against others in the same vein?

All in all, a great idea and I hope that many will look to add it to their dashboards. You can download the plugin from WordPress here.

    Hi Dixon,

    thanks for the post. If anyone has any other feature requests, either add them here so the Majestic guys can see them too or head over to the plugin page on my website.

    I am looking at both fixing the overhang issue and adding competitors in there too.

    Referring domains are also on the list.

    Great. there is also what I can only assume is a slash BR tag missing after the * Cumulative View/Monthly View/Normalized menu which would clean it up a tad on my dashboard.

    Can’t replicate that.

    The new update is waiting to go and does have quite a few fixes in.
