Is there a way to see only the external  links to my website ?
link:www.lifeinitaly.com will return a mix of internal and external links -
I would like to see just the external links-

Re: Who links to me ?

Go to www.alexa.com and type your domain into the search box:


when the results come up, you'll see an option on the right that says
"sites linking in".  click on that and it will tell you who links to
your website externally.

Also use the same syntax in Yahoo, which will return more results. However,
links to self (internal) will be included among the results.

I never knew that alexa.com did something similar.... until now. However,
while I know about related sites, I can't find anything for backlinks, as
suggested elswhere in this thread. Moreover, "link:" is an operator which I
know is not supported by MSN. Ever since Alexa accepted a payment to move to
leave Google and take MSN (with a promotional statement), I no longer care
for them. Perhaps neither should you... *smile*

Reminds me of:

They are paying off Web hosts as well, as means of manipulating figures.

MSN supports the link:http://www...

A fast way to find IBLs is to use Firefox with the CustomizeGoogle
extension.  That will put some JavaScript on the Google SERPs that lets
you search the other search engines with just a click.

1. Hit Ctrl-K to move to the Firefox Google search box.
2. Type link:http://domain [Whatever your domain is. You have to use the
http:// for Yahoo.]
3. Middle-click (or Ctrl-click) on the links for Yahoo
and MSN on the Google SERPs.

Now you have 3 tabs open with the different results for your IBLs.

Amazon have also caused hard times for a lot of smaller
bookstores in the US, and Amazon are still not even making a profit.

Thanks to all - It looks like even if I have been doing web developmet for
years there is still plenty of stuff to discover -
Alexa was extremely helpful - Not only it did not include the internal links
but it only showed one
result per website external link so I could finally see lots of website I
could not reach before.
