Backlink analysis 101 - how to review your website for incoming links…
This is a good overview of what it means to do a “backlink analysis” on a website. Number of inbound links to a website (how many other sites link to yours) is still an important factor for ranking well in search engines.
There are a number of tools available that makes this a straight forward task. Checking which sites link to yours, to which specific pages, and what words they use in their link texts, can teach you a lot about what on your website / in your business is deemed important and link worthy by others.
If you have never done this for your website, try it out using Open Site Explorer following the instructions in this post. You never know what you might find. #g
