Last Linked Date is the last date the web spiders found the website linking to the target domain.
Domains listed in the dropdown are re-spidered every 2 weeks. Any Last Linked Date that is older than 2 weeks from today's date means the website dropped the link.
The historical data is of value because it shows websites that used to link to the target. They dropped the target due to non-conversions, program change, etc. The lead is still of interest because the website did attract the demographic of traffic at one point.
If the website is still active, then it most likely dropped the target and promoted a competitor.
T3Flow Metric gives a ranking order of how to sort the list and to prioritize who to target.
Affiliates are like traffic funnels. The wide part of the funnel is their incoming traffic, whether it be type-in, SEO, links, email, etc. The
small part of the funnel is where they point the traffic to (ie. a website/offer/merchant).
T3Report focuses just on linking relationships. The higher the T3Flow value, the more it means that the webmaster must really like the target domain, because they
are ensuring that their incoming traffic is exposed to the outbound target link.
In the table above, column B (aggregating page) is the specific web page on the affiliate domain that has a link to the target (column A).
Column C (referring) is a specific web page that has a link to a specific web page on the affiliate's domain (column B).
A surfer who is on a page in Column C will see a banner/link that takes them to the webpage in Column B. On the web page in Column B is a banner/link that can take the surfer
to Column A. This connection of the dots shows that traffic flows through the affiliate, rather than just come from the affiliate.
Each row is counted as 1 T3Flow, or 1 path of traffic.
Sort the T3Report by T3Flows to order the list. Click the T3Flow table header one time, and the report sorts from least to greatest. Click again to
sort from greatest to least. This is the ranking order to go through the data.
Clicking export data all or export new will export all data shown in the worksheet, including any Email addresses or Notes added into the system, can be exported to an excel spreadsheet.
You can have data analysts log in and go through the reports to gather the email addresses as well as adding notes to identify targets, and then as the Manager, export the data to an excel spreadsheet and work off the spreadsheet to send personalized emails.
The dump to Excel spreadsheet (ie. CSV file) will include the email and notes that were entered. You could also import the CSV file into your own CRM system.
The domains listed in the Linking Domain column are in the report because there is a banner or link that goes from the website to the target domain.
The link could be an affiliate link, a reciprocal trade, a paid link, an natural/organic link, etc.
