    Hi @ll,

    I'm a lil bit confused about the difference from the number of external backlinks to a page and the number of unique domains referring to a page.

    Why I'm asking is, I'm currently playing with a keyword tool (don't know if I should name the tool), but it's a well-known tool, and in the competition analysis for a keyword there is a two columns which I don't understand correctly.

    is it not the same thing, to get a link from an external source to a well-optimized keyword landingpage? Maybe someone knows what I try to explain..

    Thanks

    If you are getting multiple backlinks from the domain to your page, it will be calculated as 1 unique domain referring page.

    For example

    Your site homepage getting backlinks from

    domain1 home page
    domain1 inner page1
    domain1 inner page2

    The tool's results will be
    external backlink 3
    unique domains 1
