    Go to Yahoo.com and there write this: "link:(URL of your hub)"(without quotes) in the search bar.

      The tool seems broken... checked a couple of my sites and it says: Unable to retrieve backlinks at this time, please try again later.

          Those two were the only sites I checked.

            Yes. I noticed that. Not sure what's the issue is with that site.



            For google algorithm, link count from yahoo is useless. Google webmaster shows exact links indexed by google.

              That's an excellent and often overlooked point.

              For Google SEO, Yahoo links are meaningless. They might bring you traffic but as far as Google cares, only links it has indexed matter with regard to SERP.

    And to see which ones are actually being used, use Google Analytics.

      Surely all the links google knows about are being used in some way towards rankings? Analytics will show you which links are passing traffic, but keep in mind traffic is almost certainly being boosted by links that might not pass traffic directly.

        Yes, certainly. But if you ARE seeing nice traffic from someone, that's good to know. You might be able to convince them that a better link description would be appropriate or that another page of yours is a good idea for another page of theirs.

        A bird in the hand, you know?

          Totally agree, knowing which links produce traffic is important and if you can tweak the link text to something more targeted then so much the better. I don't fully understand what you mean by "that another page of yours is a good idea for another page of theirs" are you suggesting a link exchange?

          1. Pcunix profile image92
            Pcunixposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            No, no, no.

            I'm saying that, for example, if I linked from my one of my Linux pages to one of yours, you might read another page of mine and realize that you have another article that could be helpful for my page to link to.

            If you mentioned link exchange, I wouldn't even read your email. But if you tell me something useful, I might just do it - especially if I had already done it once!

    That's the first SEO tool that you HAVE TO GET. Use Firefox and get an addon SEOQuake. It has many options but the main is you'll get a sidebar with Yahoo link count.
    It can be implemented in 2 minutes so don't bother with some on site check etc. Save time that's the most important thing with SEO.

    If you have the SEO for Firefox addon, use SEO XRay. Just go to the FF toolbar and choose Tools > SEO for Firefox > SEO XRay

    Yahoo backlink checker never seems to represent anything that correlates to SEO results. I suggest using the free version of SEOMoz Open Site Explorer to take a look a tthe kind of valid backlinks you are collecting.  You can registere for free to get a larger amount of information.
