As I watch my stats I see that 1 out of 3 IE users bookmarks my site. I think that is really darn good. But the question is what percentage of those people are webmasters and what percentage will go to the trouble of adding my link to somewhere on one of their websites?

I assume that it is something like 1/1000 that add website links back to your webpage. Maybe higher if the site is not interactive. But for an interactive sites the percentage should be good.

How many natural backward links should a site have after a year. Natural links as in they linked on their own.

My experience (after adding 100 non-commercial informational pages indexed by Google in the last two months) is very little. If you have such high bookmarking ratios I am sure you will be doing quite well though.

How do you know that these are "bookmarks"?

Direct typed at address bar (from a business card, brochure, etc.) generally appears the same, I would think?

"GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1"

One page on one of my sites gets about 1 in 5 bookmarks from IE and has gained 20 "natural links" this year so far, but I do offer a free graphic on this page only if they link back. I think most of the bookmarks are from people who find the information useful rather that webmasters wanting to use the graphic.

One day a month I spend time looking for new "quality" links.

I get 7-9 % results.

It is a good investment.

"GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1"

Is that really still a safe indicator for bookmarking?
There seem to be some browsers that fetch the favicon in any case, so they can display it in the address bar.
