At InLinks, you can get started for free and grow according to your needs.  

You can get the most out of your subscription if you spend some time looking at how the credit system lets you grow at your own pace. 

We give you a product that would normally cost thousands of dollars a month for less than 40. 

It all starts with “Credits”

When you buy a level 1 subscription, we will give you 100 credits. 

Credits are renewed every month and unused credits will be lost. 

The number of credits in each subscription level also indicates the maximum number of pages you can add to your project (100 in level 1, 205 in level 2, etc.). 

Everything you do “eats” credits: 

  • adding each new page costs 1 credit 
  • audit costs 5 credits (10 credits if you are on the free plan)
  • creating a content brief costs 5 credits (10 credits if you are on the free plan)

This means that if you add 100 pages to your project at once, you don’t leave yourself any credits this month for auditing existing content or creating and/or optimizing content briefs. 

A good tip: don’t add the maximum number of pages to a project at once, because it will consume all your credits and you won’t have any left to do an audit or create a content brief. 

When pages are added to the system, you can, without using more credits: 

  • Associate topics to pages (and pages to topics) 
  • Modify the schema created 
  • Modify the links created 

In other words, for 1 credit once only, you can manage your About Schema and optimize your internal links for as long as you have the account. Next month you can use spare credits to optimize content. 

What happens if I delete some pages and add new ones?

If you are at the limit of the number of pages you can add, you will probably have to upgrade to add more. You CAN delete pages if you wish, which will let you add more to replace them. However, you will lose any schema and links generated on those deleted pages and each page you add will use up one credit on the month it is uploaded, so that we can analyze the pages you add.

Auditing Content Costs Credits

When you click on the “Audit”, button, you are about to use up 5 credits. This analysis infact has to analyze up to 10 other pages that we use to build a knowledge graph around the phrase you use.

Once we have the knowledge graph, re-analyzing is less complex. Even so, you will use 1 credit every time you:

  • Press the “Update Analysis” button on the content brief editor
  • Change a comparison URL to one of your choice (in the serps tab)
  • Revert back from analyzing the text editor content to the live URL

It is important, at lower subscription levels, to avoid reanalyzing your content every time you change a sentence

Make sure your content writers understand this

Creating a Content Brief is the same as an Audit

Just like auditing an existing page, a content brief also needs to look up 10 pages to create a knowledge graph. It costs 5 credits to create the Content Brief and then one credit each time you reanalyze any updated text you have written.

What are Manually Added Credits?

When we carry out a setup for you, or there has been an error of our own doing, usually discussed through the support channel, we might add some credits to help address the issue. These credits will remain until the next billing cycle, where your credits should reset to your account maximum in any event.

If Level 1 is 100 Credits, why is Level 2 not 200 credits?

Higher Level give incremetally more credits per level

Each time you increase your subscription, you are rewarded with incrementally more credits. We figure that people ask “can I have a discount for scale” so much, that we should build this into the pricing from the start. Here is a table showing how the resources increase as you go up the levels:

Total usage based on the level of package with Inlinks. Multiple users and APi access from level 4 onwards.

Is there a maximum number pages I can have?

Yes – regardless of how you use credits, the maximum number of pages you can have on your account at any one time is equal to the number of credits that you get each month. So 100 pages at level 1 and 205 pages at level 2 etc. Having the pages on the system does not cost a credit every month – only on the month it is added – but the overall page limit is based on your level.

How to Maximize your use at low levels

Don’t add all your sites to the project at once. Add the 10-20 most important ones first, so that you still have enough credits to start auditing them. 

If you want to go faster, you can of course go to higher levels right away. The more pages in your project, the better our Knowledge Graph is and the more internal links we can find for you.

    We’re using this tool daily and loving it. I’m sure this tool will be huge given time. I have numerous questions about the topic charts, such as knowing when to create a page for a given entity and how to strucutre the page . For example pension is related to employment , but how do I know what needs a page and what doesn’t. For SEO purposes, does an entity mean create a content silo around this, or does it mean create a page. lots of questions 😀 but im sure I will learn in time.
