  • References: This is Moz’s Link equity, once colloquially referred to with the awful term “link juice,” is a search engine ranking factor based on the idea that certain links pass value and authority from one page to another. This value is dependent on a number of factors, such as the linking page’s authority, topical relevance, HTTP status, and more. Links that pass equity are one of many signals that Google and other search engines use to determine a page’s rankings in the SERPs. Moz’s Link Equity analysis.
  • Popularity: Of the 2000+ MBFC sites, this indicates the where this site falls in the continuum of sites analyzed. Sites with few References (Link Equity) are close to 0% in popularity.
