1. yes if someone has clicked the link and come to your site (it will show in your logs - see Sierra_Dad answer above)
2. otherwise no
>>If you want to check if a specific site links to you use Xenu link checker.
many sites block the Xenu UA, so it wouldn't work in that case
Google is very slow while showing links from other websites, so best is to use MSN to find out which websites link you.
Yahoo also shows correct backlinks from other websites.
Use following to check backlinks from these three search engines.

It works for some but not all of them so you may want to check each one that shows no backlink individually.
I have noticed also some sites that have been around a long time have all white in PR bar yet I could still find my link from there homepage w/ no funky robots.txt or nofollow tags. Anyone know why it would show zero and still show up cached?
Does anyone know a script that i could get (message me sideband please if not allowed onsite) all the sites linking to my www.example.com from all of the search engines and provide results all on one page? (easy to use "find" feature that way) Im cleaning up a links page and going to have to find an automated way to see who links back and suggestions welcome. For now Arelis looks to be the best.
