ResearchLinksGetCountNewsDomains

Number of links from news sites pointing to a given URL



Cost per call: 10.00

This call returns the current number of links from news sites as well as the number of referring news domains for a given URL.

Google has high trust in news pages because editors are responsible for the setting of links. A link from a news page is therefore more valuable than a link from a web catalogue or a blog. However, all types of links are necessary for a natural link profile.
