Have you ever wondered which other pages on the web link to your own? Wouldn’t it be nice to know which sites are talking about your content, and in which context? Well, a problem no more: now you can see all the backlink URL’s, post titles, and more right within the new Social reports.
The concept of trackbacks, a protocol by which different sites could notify each other of referencing links, first emerged back in 2002. Since then, the blogosphere has grown in leaps and bounds, but the requirement for each site to explicitly implement this protocol has always stood in the way of adoption. If only you could crawl the web and build an accurate link graph. The good news is we already do that at Google, and are now providing this insight to Google Analytics users.

On the down side - Google is gathering far too much information at the same time and they have a history of launching competing products with that data. I recommend you separate your tracking from the company that ranks you. Piwik as mentioned above, or awstats or sitemeter etc all have free options as do other tracking only companies.

and hoping their 800lb Gorilla status will carry them
Goog is now 597.12 lbs and falling from a high of 642 this year. I won't be surprised if it shrinks down to 2009 levels given their constant tinkering, lack of G+ traction and many many lawsuits. Back below 400 even?

Google is one of the best search engines which people use daily and because of it google update there system monthly and some time weekly.thats why google analytic is getting smart and can track content.
