Companies having more than one website mostly have similar IPs so, it is important for search engine to exclude the potential link-networks that are designed to manipulate the page ranking.

Some other factors useful in backlink analysis are domain InLink rank, page InLink rank, backlink country of origin, linked pages and anchors texts. InLink rank determines how much power lies with the domain and the Domain InLink is the domain’s overall power estimation.

All these factors are used to analyze the growth of a page in the eyes of the search engine over the time. You can easily know the authority and value of each backlink to your website and hence, understand the competing website’s domain authority.
