    Hey guys!

    What do you usually use when checking domains in Majestic, Fresh or Historic Index?

    Thanks for answering!

    Is that because the Fresh Index is updated more often and is kept up-to-date?

    Since Fresh Index shows the latest data (within 90 days) and Historic shows more detailed links from the past (a history of 5 years of data), it's important to check both.

    Yeah, I need this info when searching domains for PBN. I guess historic is better for this.

    Any other input on this is welcomed!

    Thanks
