Who's Linking To Your Site?
« on: April 27, 2012, 05:57:19 PM »
Some search engines (mainly Google) partially rank you according to what other websites have links to your website. This is very important for 2 reasons.

1.  The more important a website is that is linking to you, the better ranking you'll receive.

2.  You can see who is linking to you and decide if they are helping or hurting your rankings.

To find out who is linking to your website, use the following on google.com:

link:www.your_website.com - "your_website" is, of course, your own domain.

* NOTE - There is a misconception that text links work with search engines and image banners do not. This is not true! Try it with this forum and you'll see that www.pixelmansion.com is indexed by google as linking to my forum and they use image banners in a Simple Portal block! ;)

Why? Because the code for the banner contains simple text links to point to the websites even though humans see an image. Search engines don't index te image but read the code.

Using javascript in a link is also a no-no. Just use regular "a href" tags.
