Hi there,

Is there a way of finding how many links are coming from other websites to your own site. I dont know if they a called "incoming links".

I thought there was a way with using google, something link (you type in)
links:http://www.mysite.com

Any help?

Cheers

You should really get a Google toolbar for your browser, it's all in there as well.

So that would return sites that have a link to us only in the form of http://www.mysite.com

So if i had two sites both mentioning my other car sites

1) when one has a link, http://www.oldcars.com/

2) and the other site has say .../bargain-cars.php?good=oldcars=2

only number result 1) will be returned when using links:http://www.drinkpromo.com ?

Thanks

yes, it will only detect links. If you want to detect who has mentioned drinkpromo.com, just type it in to the search field that way :)

You can also see this from the Google Webmaster center. If you don't have this set up already, make sure you have a Google account and go to http://www.google.com/webmasters/
