Is there a way I can tell how many backlinks I have for my website?(using wordpress) It says something about incoming links, but says none are found. I have made some backlinks on some of my relevant hubs. Wouldn't that show up?
Or are incoming links and backlinks two different things?
I have installed SEOBook to my Firefox menu and it provides me with all sorts of analysis tools including information about which backlinks are on which p ages of my sites. And it's free.
SEOMoz is running a 30 day free trial, its $99 a month normally though.
Anything that uses Yahoo site explorer is inaccurate. The wordpress incoming links thing confuses me, It has only ever brought up one of my backlinks on my latest site, I think it filters to allow blogs only and some kind of quality check.
I have never used any backlink tool that is accurate. I've seen where my sites get no links at all to thousands depending on what your using.
So I gave up and just get backlinks when I can, quality ones and don't worry about it.
Bill, how do you go about getting the "quality backlinks"?
Do you just cold call the respective sites and offer a link exchange?
I do that, but not often. I use places like Hubpages for backlinks and a dozen other types like that. I get many links from major newspaper and news sites via comments.
You can also get links from local online newspapers in their content pages if your site is local.
Then you have those many web 2.0 sites. Don't forget to list your site with Google business and places like Merchant Circle.
In fact, type in "leather jackets in Orlando" and notice the single listing with a picture way at the top!
hey Bill, thanks for the info. I just wanted to follow up on a few points.
So are you primarily using Hubpages as a backlinks source to your main sites like the leather jackets and the Orlando pet shop, correct?
When you mentioned getting links from major newspapers/news sites via the comments sections, are you posting comments with keyword anchors linked back to your sites? i would be surprised if that worked because many of those sites are "no follow".
Lastly, regarding the local papers, are you referring to business listings they may have or are you submitting articles to them that our local-centric.
Sorry for all the questions but you seem like you know what the hell you're talking about!
Thanks but no, most of the time I don't know what I'm talking about!
I use Hubpages for backlinking to my sites, yes. I also make a little off my hubs, everything adds up. Found some great writers here too.
The major newspapers and news places I use a combination of comment links, plain link swapping and some even put your link in their sites if it's local.
As for no follow links, they are worth getting links from, I don't care what anyone else says. Don't forget, you can also get traffic from links.
Just play around with as many places as you can. Almost all sites now offer your own little blog you can put links in. About half are do follow. Just takes time.
I also use an SEO plug in for firefox. Fro the life of me I dont know what its called.
I know i got it form Firefox plugins for free and I just right click ,scroll down to SEO Open in the menu, click and it opens a new menu with all the serach engines and then I hover over one it give you a choice of view backlinks and all other nifty info.
It opens a new page in the browser with the results so you can compare results pages for google, alexa, yahoo etc.
All you do is open any page on the internet and right click to check that specific page.
I found it. Its called SEOpen.Its free.
Hope this helps

All of my incoming links in the stats section are now showing only one incoming link. Previously, some showed 5 links. Has anyone else noticed a loss of links?~Jen
