Question: I’ve entered multiple tiers of links in Backlink Monitor, but the hierarchy view shows them as all “Tier 1″ links. Why?
Answer: The hierarchy view shows the shortest backlink path to your Root URL (this is the same way that Google would view the link structure). Your “Tier 2″ pages must not include any links directly back to the Root URL. If they do, then they are actually “Tier 1″ links and the link hierarchy view will reflect that.
