Is this possible to find inbound links for a domain including 301-ed ones?

Thanks.

Where are you looking?

Your server logs contain that information, and the original referrer URL is preserved through any redirect.

You then need to spider all URLs in that list and see the HTTP status code returned for each one.

Sorry for unclear question. I need to find all inbound links of a competitor website. I can see direct links using yahoo site explorer or alltheweb, but they don't show 301-ed links, which are counted by SEs and pass link juice.

Example:
- website1 has a link from website2 - site explorer shows the link from website2 to website1.
- website1 has a link from website2, but there is a 301 redirect from website1 to website3 - site explorer doesn't show the link from website2 to website3, which is understandable, but counts this link.

There's a pay for tool that will do that but we can't really mention names on here.

Actually no the tool I'm talking about wouldn't. It does show if website2 links to website1 and website1 301's that to somewhere on website1 but not to website3.

I think for that tool do some re-search in Search Engines :)

I tried but couldn't find anything. I would be very grateful if you could send me some hints in PM (hopefully it's not against this site TOS).

Thanks a lot!
