We rated each site in our test for LINK POPULARITY and SEARCH ENGINE SATURATION. We gathered up the the numbers and added them up for total score signifing it's rating. We conducted the test on Monday November 13th between 9am and 10:30am.

For the Link Popularity Test, we omitted the links that are included within the domain of the site we are checking. This action eliminates self links so that we get a more accurate picture as to the real number of links that other sites post for the site in question.

For the test, we only used sites that predominately promote real estate in the Riviera Maya and not other locations. In other words, if the site just has posted some real estate in the Riviera Maya and mainly promoted other areas or even tours, news, and things in addition to real estate, they were not considered exclusive for Riviera Maya Real Estate and thus were not rated.
