How To Track Backlinks To Your Blog

Backlinks to your site It’s no secret that building backlinks is one of the most important aspects of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and one of the things you can do yourself to improve your rankings.

Now, are you aware of who is currently linking back to your site? In this post we’ll go over how to find out, setup alerts through a simple tool you already know, Google and see other options.

This is a very easy process that anybody can do in just a few clicks. Here is the step-by-step action:

Google Blog Search

Head over to Google Blog Search and run a search for “link:yourdomain” (i.e. “link:socialmouths.com”)

Google Blog Search

Google will kindly return the results for blogs linking back to your site.

Google Blog Search Results

Set up alerts

To set up email alerts or subscribe via RSS go to the subscribe section on the left bar and configure your preferences. You’re done.

Create a Google alert

Additional Tools

If you use additional tools, you will find that there are more links to your site that are just not showing on the Google results.

Page inLink Analyzer

What I love about Page inLink Analyzer is that not only you can see what sites are linking back to your blog but you also view the amount of inlinks that page has, how many are linking to that domain and how many bookmarks it has on Delicious. Why is this important? because not all links are worth the same, the more popular sites linking to you have a higher impact.

Nothing to it, just go to link provided above, enter your url and it will build your report.

Final Thought

While I’m showing tracking tools in this post, the important thing is that you work on actually building these links. If you create valuable content and you promote it, some blogs will pick it up without even asking but you should also consider being proactive in building as many as you can. There is no point on implementing the tools if you are not getting any backlinks to your site.

Are you using other methods? Share them in the comments sections…

  • nice post you done…

  • THose are brilliant tips, thanks for sharing ! I'm going to do that with my blog, right after I finish this comment, which will be now !

  • Thanks man, cool transformation of Thesis by the way.

  • Thanks, the design was lots of work 🙂

    And strange: Google didn't find any backlinks to my blog, even though I know two sites specifically that linked back to me. Do you need a minimum amount of backlinks in order to get listed ?

  • I suggest you run Page Inlink Analyzer, I see a lot of backlinks here that are not showing on Google.

    You can also run searches on BlogPulse or IceRocket, mentions on other blogs usually mean also a link.

  • Thanks a landlord it! I acquired yet some insight. Life is so colorful, we should be able to live in, such as Korea and honor the planet. Human life is like rivers, slowly flowing, flowing rivers, flowing through the snow, flows through the prairie and ultimately into the sea, return to the embrace of nature, start a new reincarnation. Allow us to feel the meaning of life will come only to those you have those memories http://www.cheap-nikeshox.com/nike-shox-R3.html

    A debate which is ongoing in the United States, where some experts are saying, e-cigarettes may be a factor to lure youngsters to smoking. We believe this is not true, as it will positively push smokers to switch to e-cigarettes which are not as dangerous like traditional cigarettes.
