Want to know who’s linking to your website? Yes, of course you do! For one, it’s cool to know what types of information people like to use to reference you as an expert; it’s also one of those easy things to do to manage your reputation online.
Typing directly into Google.com’s search box or into the Google toolbar in your browser, type (yes, include the .com/.net/.tv extension) : LINK: MYSITE.com
A page of results will display with all of the references back to your site. In many cases, you will recognize the source, but in some cases you’ll find that a bot has picked up your posts and referenced you on their site.
If you find someone linking that you really would rather not have link back to your site, find a contact and ask nicely to be removed. If that doesn’t work, you can try to contact the server or provider and report them as spam and explain that they’re stealing your content.
