These are the variables that we use to calculate your Linkscore:

1) Number of websites that link to you

We're calculating the Linkscore based on a maximum number of 100.000 websites.

2) The average DA* of those websites

Specifically we use the average DA of the top 80 % of those websites, while always rounding up individual DA values to the nearest 10.

3) The DA of your own website

In case your own DA is 0, we'll round up to 1.

This means the formula looks like this: Number of websites that link to you x The average DA of those websites x The DA of your own website = Linkscore

*DA is short for Domain Authority, i.e. the authority assigned to a website by Google
