Dear All,
i am confused for backlinks and inbound links, i don't know if backlinks will include internal links or not? i thought it will not, but i see backlink through google tool and found it included internal links, i am crazy now, and some guys said inbound link = backlink, but i see the explain about inbound link: "Links pointing to a website. When a user arrives at a website from another site, that link is called an Inbound Link.
"
you can see that it said another site not another pages, it is different, so i understand inbounk link will not include internal links. what do u think? really need your help. thank you very much, i am appreciated!

Yes, the Google link: operator will sometimes report "internal" links. Internal links still figure into PageRank calcuations, linktext influence and so on. The words "backlinks" and "inbound links" are not technically precise and they often get used in a vague way.

Also note, the link: operator on Google only reports a small sample of the links they know about. If you want to see your links in a fuller and more precise way -- and sort out just the links that come from another domain -- Yahoo's Site Explorer will do the job for you.

thank tedster!
but i check backlinks by typing "linkdomain:www.yahoo.com" in yahoo, you see the result, still have some yahoo pages in them, i am also confused, want to know if backlink=inbound link? if backlink/inboundlink will include internal links or not? if i cannot understand them i don't know how to count my backlink or inbound link really?

Use [siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com...] and when you click on Inlinks, you then have three options: Show Inlinks From: "All Pages", "Except From This Domain", and "Except From This Subdomain".
