Top World Domains By Backlinks

By Newsroom November 8, 2008

Below you can see top 200 world domains ranked by number of external referring domains that pointed to them. Additionally we also show number of external backlinks that we are aware of. All this data is derived from our Anchor Index. Numbers in brackets show change in position (up or down, or new entry) and external referring domains and external backlink counts in new index compared to the last one. If you like this information and wish to spread it around then please mention the source of it: Majestic SEO, a backlink to this table would be nice too.

If you are interested in a bigger list feel free to contact us.
