How to use the Co-Citation tool

A tutorial with Garrett French

Watch below to learn how to use the Co-Citation tool:

Step 1

Compile a list of URLs related to the page, brand or content you’re promoting. We recommend using at least 5.

If you’re using the tool for biz dev or homepage linking, we recommend you compile a list of your top-ranked competitors. For content promotion, create a list list of urls of competing or related content. For PR competitive analysis, building a list of URLs that have mentioned or cited your competitors.

Step 2

Pull backlinks for your URLs using various sources. The tool works with back links pulled from Link Prospector, Majestic SEO and ahrefs.

Make a folder on your computer to contain various backlink reports. Then pull backlink reports for all your URLs using one or all of these backlink tools.

(Note: There are many instances where ahrefs has links that Majestic doesn’t have, where link prospector has links that ahrefs doesn’t find, and so on. So if you want to find the most and *best* opportunities, use information from all three.)

Step 3

Drop your folder of CSVs into the Co-citation Tool and select the minimum number of co-cited links you’d like to see per result.

For example, choosing “2” means you’ll only see results that link to at least 2 of your chosen URLs.

Step 4:

As soon as you click “CoURLs” or “CoDomains,” the results are automatically copied into your clipboard. Open a spreadsheet, press ctrl-V, and you’ve got your list.

The URLs are organized by the number of co-cited URLs and domains, automatically prioritizing your outreach. And you know these sites are linking to quality resources because you used quality resources as your seed set.
