Just last month Majestic SEO
rolled out its brand new search engine ranking transparency features that will certainly be a hot ticket item for those in the SEO world. Now, when you type a search phrase into Majestic's search engine, not only can you expect to find search results, but you will also find "an increasingly detailed view of how, and why," Majestic ranks their results, which means no more guessing on your part!
Along with their latest transparency features, Majestic also launched a new SERPS screen layout which shows the main search score factors in the SERPS themselves, along with the Flow metrics, referring domains, and external backlink counts, giving you a really good feel for the way Majestic formulates its rankings.
