Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Here is my main concern. There are several sites in that niche that are much more established – one of them actually has 40,000 back links (Yahoo & Altavista)…yikes! How can I compete with that? How can my site ever compete with that kind of back linking? Or should not even be concerned with this?
You can often get a fairly good idea of how strong those 40,000 links are by browsing through what Yahoo returns on a link check of the site. If it shows 40,000 backlinks, but then only displays 35-40 of them, then most of them are likely irrelevant (at least from what I have seen in most instances).
How does one go about "Data min(ing) your competitors backlinks"? I was thinking of going through the sites but manually it would take for ever to make that many requests
WOuld you be able to refer me to a software or site that would help me analyze the backlinks and the site's structure?
