    Hi Folks, hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Two questions 1) is there a way to check if the Google spiders have paid a visit to my hubs and 2) how can I check backlinks?

      I wrote a hub called "Backlinking for Newbies" that will teach you how to use trackers that gives you some idea about how successful your backlinks are. Hope that helps.

    Hi netlexis,

    1. Search for your hub in Google. Use the "title of the hub" in quotes

      I just had a "duh" moment when I read your reply, SunSeven. Google it... if it shows up then the spiders must of found it. I guess I was expecting something more complicated.

    If you use a query like this it will give you a lot of info as far as Google is concerned.

    Where it says: "Show Google's cache of example.com" it will tell you the last time, up top, Google indexed your hub.

    Where it says: "Find web pages that link to example.com" Google will show the more important backlinks to a web page" (Yahoo's Site Explorer reveals many more links)

    Or you could also use this query to go directly to Google's cached version of a web page.

      I thought there was something you could do through Google. Thanks, MyWebs.
