Check Backlinks To Website With Yahoo! Site Explorer

The best free tool to use to check backlinks to websites you might be interested in buying is the Yahoo! Site Explorer tool. When you buy a website, most likely the seller will highlight how many backlinks the site has but the seller usually won’t tell you if those backlinks are quality links or not. And regardless of what the seller does or doesn’t claim, you want to be able to verify the backlinks yourself. This video provides an overview of the Yahoo! Site Explorer tool and how to use it to verify a website’s backlink history.

Be sure to read the due diligence series to learn other things you should research before buying websites.

  • Yes it takes effort but doing a little each day is the right way.

  • So why exactly does it make a difference to which type of domain that the backlink points to? like the www. version or just the plain http:// version? Most domains that you register now do not have the www. in front of the domain name. 

    • It’s not an issue of which one, just that you’re consistent with your choice.

  • Absolutely wonderful article. I wonder what will ever become of mankind. Seems like that quick and resourceful will outlive all of our smart people 🙂 and thanks for posted!

  • Thanks man, this is a really cool tool. I’ve mainly used Majestic SEO up until now but recently I’ve been a fan of this tool, they seem to reveal more backlinks. Thanks again!

    I would like to know further info of why it’s NOT good that the NON-www versioon of the domain has thousands of Backlinks too. Thats the only part of the video I did not get, would be good to know ( video says “X urls, Prefferred URLs… “but can not understand the X word ) thanks
