HubPages provides statistics on our hubs that include, under "metrics," one or more asterisks indicating "Incoming Links. My question is this: Is there any way we can tell where these links are coming from?
I use the following:
Thanks, gamergirl. If I can figure out how and where to insert that code it will be great. The site looks good.
Yahoo is simple to use on any site https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/mysites
you probably want to choose show links "except from this domain" otherwise all you will see is other hubs!
I also use:
This website is very good because it tells you what websites are linking to your hubs with follow and no-follow links on google. I love my backlinkwatch .
well....if you are following google then you must know about the google approved links...for that type link:http://your url and you will be able to see the google approved links..
backlinkwatch.com does this in one easy step by showing your follow links.
thanks for the backlinkwatch site,
but now i worry as I entered my site I have 1 back link and 76 pending I wonder why that is?
The Google tool is useless for looking at backlinks. Matt Cutts with Google has stated that they intentionally don't report all the links they see, and if you have a website with the Google Webmaster tool installed, you can see for yourself that they actually see a lot more links than they show in the link:site,com command because the number of links they show in the Webmaster tools is always much higher than the number they show in the link: command.
The Yahoo tool is a much better look at the number of links that even Google is seeing than the Google tool.
Well, I have to add backlinkwatc is my favourite, quick easy and generally reliable, just don´t go above 1000 links it struggles then!!!
I like www.marketleap.com - get Google, Yahoo, and MSN reports in one.
But like the poster above mentioned, Google doesn't show all backlinks - but I believe that Yahoo does.
Please don't reply to this post.
That's a spam link and this is a five-year-old thread.
