        Donna,

        go to http://  siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com and type in URL where it says Explore URL you want to check backlinks for. I am still learning too. Hope this helps.

    I just tried that for one of my hubs, as each hub has a unique URL. Ran it through, it gave me a list of all inbound links. Then selected filter Inlinks, "except from this domain."

      WE,

      Great, I can see links from my blog page to HP but not the other way around. Does HP hubs take time to index?

        Hubs are usually indexed shortly after publication, then revisited by bots every 10 days or so. However, your blog may take awhile to get re-crawled. One-way links are more valuable than two-way (reciprocal) links, from what I hear.

    You can use the free version of SEO Spyglass,just google it and they have a whole bunch of free to use software,the only drawback to the free version is you can't save anything.

    A little less reliable is the SEO status/Alexa page rank bar for the firefox browser.

                It's really simple and self explanatory. All you have to do is put in the URL you want to check on the screen that pops up right when it starts up. Then after it checks another screen pops up asking if u want to check for back link factors. Press yes and it does it's thing and will tell you where the back links are and the anchor text and some other things.

    I use SEO spyglass very often, but unfortunately if you use the free version they only show backlinks from yahoo site explorer with additional anchor text, they don't show backlinks from google or bing and limited only for 1000 url.
