Link: Operater In Yahoo Site Explorer

 3:43 pm on Jan 29, 2007 (gmt 0)

When I do a search in Yahoo Site Explorer to check our links, very many url's that show up is from our site.

The reason may be because we have a link back from every page to the home page.

Is this OK?

Yeah, it's not a problem to have a bunch of links pointing back to your homepage. In fact, it would be pretty weird if there weren't any. If you are looking to find out who is linking to you but don't want to have to wade through your own internal links, do something like: linkdomain:mydomain.com -site:http://mydomain.com

This filters out any pages that would also show up with a site: search, i.e. any pages in the domain in question.

using Google and Yahoo?

I prefer yahoo by far, but all SE trick a little - they like to keep their cards close for a good reason.

The best thing is probably to work with relative terms: Match a certain site with others that you know well and compare their values rather than betting your life on X number of links referring to any particular page.

Good luck!

In yahoo:
linkdomain:www.mydomain.com -site:mydomain.com

Alternatively, install the search status plugin for firefox and have this info at your fingertips.
