Update – Version 1.39

Posted on: June 3rd, 2014 by Gareth Brown in Updates

We’ve got a new update for you, a couple of new datasets and UI updates.


It wouldn’t be an update without a few fixes. Most are minor, but worth updating for.

General Updates

We’ve had quite a bit of feedback regarding the UI, so we made some changes that should make things a bit easier to understand. Most of them were just text updates, with the expection of Whois data. You now choose where you want all whois data or just the email addresses.

Excel Exports

Exports are now in an Open XML spreadsheet format, which can be opened with all major spreadsheet software, including Google Docs. This update has allowed us to split the link analysis reports into separate and manageable sheets, with a nice summary page.

New Datasets

Two new datasets to play with:

  • Wayback Machine (archive.org) data, retrieves number of archives and archive dates
  • Drop history, retrieves domain name server changes and registration drop history

New Settings Menu


There’s a new settings panel to make configurations easier. The panel contains:

  • Connections
  • Link Analysis
  • Link Metrics
  • Social
  • uClassify
  • Proxies

Reduced Link Metric Data


We had a quite few people say the amount of data pulled from the Majestic SEO, Mozscape and Ahrefs APIs is overwhelming. From within the new settings panel, you can now select to either retrieve basic or full link metrics. Less is more!

Increased Social Data Configuration

You’ve now got more control over what social data you retrieve:

  • Social Shares – select the networks you want to retrieve share counts from
  • Social Account Links – select the social network account links you want to scrape

More Anonymity


You asked for it, so we built it. We’ve added more proxy server configurations for advanced use. Proxy servers can now be used for:

  • HTTP Status
  • URL Scraping
  • Google Index Check
  • Social Shares
  • Wayback Machine
  • Drop History

As you can see, this is quite a large update. Please feel free to contact us if you have an questions.
