How to find if a URL is internally linked?



9:46 am on Dec 12, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi all,

Is there a way to find the whereabouts of a particular URL as to where it's linked from in the site?

For instance,
I have this URL abc.com/page

I want to find all the pages in the abc.com that has abc.com/page in the inter linking.

Is this possible? Or am I asking for something that cannot be done as easily?

Thank you so much for your help!

Do you have access to the source code for the website? If so do a search across all the files.

Do you have access to the log files for the website? If so, look for the referrers to that page in the log files.

Otherwise, spider the site to get access to all its pages, then search.

Thanks for answering :-)

1 - I don't have access to the source code, can I get the source code for a CMS driven website? and that too with 1600k pages?


3- I have screaming frog pain version, would that work?

Thanks again

wOw...it was great and very helpful. Never thought of this before, even though always logged into GWT :-)

Thanks you so much!

You can also try to run a tool like Xenu which will crawl your site and show you all URLs and which page links to each of them.
