Ignore URLs with non-web extensions when gathering from search engines. By selecting this option Advanced Link Manager will ignore, when gathering the results from search engines, any URLs with non-web extension. This type of URLs will not be present in any report.
Assume non-web extensions as linking. This option will make Advanced Link Manager assume that all non-web extensions are linking to your website and will see all of them as referrers.
Automatically add new found pages to the project, when verifying links. By selecting this option Advanced Link Manager will automatically add to your project any new page of your website found when verifying links from referrers.
Exclude search engines with 0 links count from the charts. This option will cause Advanced Link Manager to ignore the 0 links count search for the search engines chart. This option is useful if a search engine fails due to a parsing error and the link count drops from a high value to 0. After the search engine is fixed the chart will no longer show a drop spike for that search engine if this option is checked.
Here you can select which formula will be used to determine the referrers quality ratio from the Referrers Report.
Use PR divided by the total number of outbound links. Since the PR is the higher the better, the higher the ratio is, the better the referrer is.
Use Alexa Rank divided by the total number of outbound links. Since the Alexa Rank is the lower the better, the lower the ratio is, the better the referrer is.
In this section you can choose the colors you want for the Rank columns all over the application and in the printable reports.
