    I have a question regarding backlink profiles. I noticed that some sites have 7 referring domains, but 54 links coming from those 7 domains. How is this possible?? I'm using ahrefs and this is the information I'm getting. A little confusing because how can you have multiple links coming from a single source (unless you have a sitewide link, which is not the case here).

    Thanks!

    I would just go in and take a look. There are tons of ways that this is possible.

    I'm not sure what is confusing to you. If you have a website with 10 pages and you do blog spam with a link to each page (10 unique links) on the same blog page then that would show 10 links from one domain. You could even post one link to 10 different pages on the blog and get the same results. The blog would be the one domain and the 10 pages on your site you're linking to would be the 10 unique links. Referring domain doesn't mean unique link. It means links from the same root domain. I've see 100 links from one referring domain which is 99% blog spam where the submitter is doing deep linking for his website to some AA list or similar. It doesn't gain them anything but it happens =(

    If an article from a news site links to your site twice, that is two links. However, that is only from one referring domain.
