ResearchLinksGetCountReferringIps

Number of referring IPs for a given URL (IP popularity).



Cost per call: 50.00

This call returns the number of different IPs with at least one link to the given URL (IP popularity).

The IP popularity is important for Google to discover artificially constructed link networks and remove them from a site’s popularity.

The call returns as well information aboutthe number of referring IPs with different C/B class. An identical C-class in the IP is another sign for a possible connection between the referring IPs, e.g. a similar hosting provider or somehow otherwise “associated” environment.

A high number of IP C classes shows Google that the links are very well distributed and are therefore probably natural.
