|Google Webmaster Tools reporting LOTS more link info|
Much improved over what you get with link:
Ran across this in my account - an extra links tab for each site, which reports a LOT more links (internal and external) than the link command. A welcome addition indeed.
Official word here [googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com].
|We've extended our support for querying links to your site to much beyond the link: operator you might have used in the past. Now you can use webmaster tools to view a much larger sample of links to pages on your site that we found on the web. Unlike the link: operator, this data is much more comprehensive and can be classified, filtered, and downloaded. All you need to do is verify site ownership to see this information. |
To make this data even more useful, we have divided the world of links into two types: external and internal. Let's understand what kind of links fall into which bucket.

Google is being nice by giving everyone the ability to see more and chase more links....
Here is your rope, what you do with it is up to you.
I find it very useful for DMCA reports, but that is about it.
Only tools I have available are
-Report spam in our index
-Submit a reinclusion request
|MattG3 - Remember fighting spam can also be psychological warfare. :) |
Exactly!.... I've found the mroe time I spend combating the scrapers the less time I'm devoting to my business which is where I should be focusing my efforts.
We did a quick comparison to Yahoo's backlink list and Google Sitemaps is reporting about 10% of the Yahoo link for our site. Anyone else notice what portion are being shown?
Does this mean links are no longer that important?
|I find it very useful for DMCA reports, but that is about it. |
Ditto. I'd rather see the SERPs return to normal and Google become a search engine again. This links tab is just opium for the masses. Is everyone getting as high as a boiled owl allright?
|A very important reminder from our very good friend at the plex, Matt Cutts: |
- Do not assume just because you see a backlink that itís carrying weight. Iím going to say that again: Do not assume just because you see a backlink that itís carrying weight. Sometime in the next year, someone will say ďBut I saw an insert-link-fad-here backlink show up in Googleís backlink tool, so it must count. Right?Ē And then Iíll point them back here, where I say do not assume just because you see a backlink that itís carrying weight. :)
Not complaining, this is a useful tool, but I wonder why Google doesn't just tell you that within the tool itself as a footnote or other bit of text?
Rather than having to know about and visit Matt Cutts' site, that is. :D
And they wonder why people spend so much time reading the google tea leaves... ;)
|Hey Google, 1 tiny request that would make a HUGE difference in Webmaster Tools (not to mention the AdSense admin), serve everything from a secure server so we don't get the "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items" popup "error" message. |
Hey, Google, if you do this, make it optional (at the discretion of the person using the tool).
Using ssl-based web tools sucks giant whopping buckets of snot if you are stuck behind a 26.6K baud modem line or other crippled internet connection (like any satellite-based system such as Starband, WildBlue, HugesNet - if you can get them to work at all!) The less you stick behind SSL, the better, for those poor people.
Yes, there are a lot of us who can't get to a decent broadband connection on demand. Please ensure that things will work, and work well, for us too!
this is a nice and long thread.
i think G give us a good opportunity to check our back links and i have a query - i saw so many back links for my site from same IP,
so if i get 10 back links from same IP the count of links 1 or 10?
any suggestion highly appreciate
