How to check incoming links to your hubs

    Can anyone share any advice for ways to check the number and location of webpages that are linking back to your hubs? I know there are quite a few commercial products available but as a small-timer, I'm currently trying utilise free resources.

    In the past, I used 'Yahoo! Site Explorer' to check incoming links but this doesn't seem to be available anymore.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

      Hi Doc - Try free webmaster tools in Google. https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home?hl=en
      You'll need to be sure to add your HP site if it is not visible. Once you have set up your site and google polls your info you will be able to see the various back-links to your hubs as well as other interesting data. I hope this helps.

        Sounds good but its very inaccurate.

        try links:www.yoursite.com - also inaccurate but better.

          Do we enter the URL for our profile page, or the URL for each individual hub? Sorry to ask what is probably a dumb question.

            It's down to whether you want to know the links to your profile or one or many of your pages
