Watch a quick video to see how cognitiveSEO works.

Take our SEO software for a tour so you can understand why it's as powerful as one would wish to be. This short video goes through cognitiveSEO's most relevant features and shows you how to make the most of it to achieve higher rankings.

Boost your link analysis and link building productivity.

If you're asking yourself what makes us different from the other SEO software applications on the web, here are some innovative features you won't find anywhere else. We've been working on them for the past 2 years to ensure cognitiveSEO is the tool that will set you apart from your competitors.

Link Previews

View backlink snapshots and find
Hidden and Javascript links.

We have developed an automated visual crawler that identifies the inbound links positions, super fast & super accurate. This will help you analyze & visualize large lists of backlinks with less pain and in a much shorter time. You really have to try this ... you will forget about those long - raw - ugly lists of link data. They will soon be history!

The system works similar to a visual crawler, rendering any webpage whatsoever (including Javascript and Ajax based websites)! You can use it to see the exact position on a webpage of all the inBound links you're interested in. And when we say exact, we mean just that: you will get a complete screenshot highlighting the identified links on that webpage. You will also get to see if that link is a Javascript link or a Hidden Link (like Facebook comments, for instance).

Link Classification

Spy on your competitors' link
building strategies.

The Link Classification feature will classify each analyzed link by its type (Blogroll, Blog Post, in Content Link, etc). Running a backlink analysis on your competitors allows you to find out where they’re hiding their most valuable links. Once you’ve figured it out where they’re getting traffic from, you can use those data to create a top-notch link building strategy for your site. Along with that, you can also take advantage of the timeline analysis to see the evolution of your site and your competitors’ sites.

work best for you and your

If you’re running an analysis on your competitors, this classification can really come in handy when determining which type of sites seems to be more likely to link to you, based on your competitors’ profiles.

Content Category

Identify the contextual relevance
between the site and its
inBound Links.

This great feature will help identify the contextual category of the content on the inBound links. The software detects 19 categories such as Auto/Business/Travel/Gambling etc, in the English language. This information is particularly useful when trying to identify the naturalness of your backlinks profile or your competitors’. You can use this to see if you have links placed on sites that are totally out of your niche and that could affect your rankings negatively
