Is WMT "Links To Your Site" showing internal as well as external links? Planet13
The "how your data is linked" list DEFINITELY conflates external and internal links. The question came up somewhere else fairly recently. Not sure if this is the thread I was thinking of, but it's the only one I could find: [ ...] webmasterworld.com Count your blessings. At least the list doesn't include same-page link text-- "back to top" and the like. treeline
Mine has a lot of "more like this" and "next page" lucy24
Yes, mine is bloated with "back to thumbnails". It would be bloateder still if I hadn't no-indexed so many pages :) Planet13
So that section of webmaster tools is basically useless is what you are saying then, right? lucy24
I think it's one of several gwt areas-- another is the keyword list-- that's essentially padding, created purely for wmt-internal use. It's got little-or-nothing to do with anything happening in the world at large. A more useful approach may be the "link:" feature in ordinary search. I've just tried it and am bemused but not really surprised to find a slew of links to me that aren't mentioned anywhere in gwt. :: detour here for closer investigation :: Planet13
Thank you fo rthe explanation, Lucy24. I just tried the link: search operator and there was only one page of results, have of them being from our own domain. So it only showed five from domains other than our own.
