Question

Find out who is linking to your web site!

Answer

This question was answered on September 28, 2001. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Have you ever wondered how many other web sites link to your site?

Link relevance is becoming a major factor in getting good search engine placement The theory is that if you have more web sites linking to your content than your competition, it must be more relevant...

You can actually use several search engines to give you a nice report of who is linking to you and more importantly exactly how they are linking to you.

You can see the exact page on a site that is linked to your site and how they are representing you.

Here's how:

Google and AltaVista: type 'link:www.yourwebsite.com

AOL, HotBot, iWon and MSN: type 'linkdomain:www.yourwebsite.com'

AllTheWeb: type 'link.all:www.yourwebsite.com'
