Highlight Links & Broken Link Checker: Additional filter options:

Using Pre-render tag to show authority in SERPs:
- Google uses a rel="prerender" attribute for a URL in the SERP when it believes that the CTR to that URL is very high. This attribute is an indirect gauge for authority. We highlight this URL by showing the SEO Minion icon in front of it. Most brand queries will have this highlight. However, non-brand queries might also display this highlight, which would mean that the highlighted result gets more than a normal share of clicks, and will be very hard to out-rank

Support multiple languages:
- SEO Minion now natively supports Spanish, German, French, Dutch and Italian. If you would like us to support additional languages, please email us at and let us know. Do let us know if you do find some incorrect translations.
