Public Spam Link Database
Add the ability to flag domains as spam, this could be community driven for example "500 users flagged this as spam". Then give the ability filter out spam from link profiles.
Introduce Flagging Of Potential Toxic Links
Please add a tool that will flag potential dangerous links and recommend them for disavow.
Universal Blacklist to Filter Out Domains From All Reports
There is a ton of trash websites out there on the web. Domains that add no value to the datasets when doing research. I'd love to be able to add domains to a master filter list. So as I use the tool and find domains which have junk spam content or auto generated pages and links, I can add them to this list. Then, every report on the site from content explorer to link reports, will automatically filter those sites from the lists and exports of the reports. The agregate numbers don't need to change or the math, just a filter on screen and export that doesn't show us the site in question as it has no value..
Link Disavow from Individual Page
Would be nice to be able to disavow links from a specific URL. I know we can disavow from the domain as a whole but it would be cool to be able to search for a particular URL and be able to disavow links right from that screen.
Specific Disavows - When Adding Disavow Reports
At the moment you can only add a disavow to a project. It will only show you it on the top level analysis of the project domain. If you want to filter down to say a specific page; it doesn't let you hide the anchors you've disavowed. Surely it would make sense for the system to still hide the anchors?
Ahref's Disavow Data Made Public
Explanation: Ahrefs asks if users want to upload a disavow file when doing keyword tracking. What if you made that data public in a database that allowed us to see how many people have domain example.com on their disavow list? EXAMPLE: I search for example.com in this database Ahrefs says- 1,045 have example.com on their uploaded disavow. This is in the 20th percentile of most disavowed sites. (or something similar to this?)
Update AHREFS Index for Disavow for accurate UR Rating
We have over 175k junk links to our website. I have submitted a disavow txt file to Google as of 8-21-2019 (I can submit proof of this through a screenshot or a screen share). Today, I went through and submitted this to AHREFS, since I saw that our UR rating is still very low. I reached out to AHREFS and they informed be that they will not be removing these links from their index, only from reporting? And that this submission will not update our UR. The only way I can get these updated is by having the referring domain remove them. As you can imagine, the odds of this domain removing all of these links are incredibly low. Perhaps this is a reason as to why Google allows you disavow links in the first place. How you can easily address this issue: Have someone who is attempting to disavow backlinks provide digital proof of their submissions to Google. A simple screenshot of the Google Search Console Disavow submissions screen, after submission, would be proof enough. Also have them include the txt file they have submitted for accuracy. You would then go through and update your index. This will remove any spammy agencies who are trying to fudge their numbers to clients and keep your reporting clean and incredibly accurate. In the meantime, I have reached out to the offending domain and am awaiting on a reply. From what it looks like, their website was hacked and they are sending out millions of spammy links. I will update if they respond.
Don't include disavowed backlinks in backlink summary count
If you disavow a domain/url in site explorer (we have one domain that produces 10's of thousands of junk back links), site explorer summary removes them from its total, but the dashboard summary of number of back links continues to include the disavowed. That does not seem right to me. Esp. problematic when you have a domain that produces so much junk.
Add note to disavowed pages/domains
It would be great if we could be able to add a note when disavowing stuff so that we know the reason why we did that.
Add column for previously disavowed domains to "New Domains" Excel report.
Please add a column to the New Backlinks report for domains that have been added to the disavow list? I'm reporting to a client on backlink activity, and every time I pull this report, I have to compare the Excel download to my screen to make sure I'm only reporting domains that are actually new and haven't been previously disavowed.
