About the ‘Links’ Section

Labeled as ‘links,’ this section includes tools which show backlinks to specific webpages and/or websites. Backlinks are webpages which link to the given page. Backlinks are useful for several reasons. You can find related websites, gauge the popularity of your (or anyone else’s) website, and find what people are writing about that page. The ‘From Blogs’ subsection includes tools which generally show backlinks only from weblogs.
