Here is a simple way of finding out what pages on the internet link back to your site.
Bring up Google.com, then type in your url for your site.
And enter. when the the results come up, go to the bottom and click : Find web pages that contain the term…. This will bring up new results.
Notice at the top right it will say something like: Results 1 – 10 of about 580 for “www.mysite.com”.
Google does not show all results, just the most important ones it finds, or ones that it thinks are important. Go to the last page of your results and you will see a link that explains this. If you click on this all your results will be shown.
repeat the search with the omitted results included
For small web sites this actually works better than running a search for link: www.yoursite.com. The bad part with this method is that it also brings up your own site’s pages.
Just another day editing html I guess. It feels like Friday already!
Over the weekend I noticed that browsing in Safari and in Firefox was significantly slower than normal and since I had upgraded my Powerbook to Mac OS X Tiger, I figured it was probably a bug and Apple would fix it in 10.4.2 or some other update. However I started to look at it and see if I could fix it myself.
Apparantly some OS X Tiger users have been recommending that you disable IP6 in your Network Preferences, which does seem to work, but I’m not sure how long this lasts or if it is the actual fix or not.
I decided to spend some time tightening up my Netgear wireless router and noticed that the router setup did not have my ISP DNS server ip addresses. I corrected that and then in OS X Network Preferences I put the ip address for my router and that seemed to fix things and now browsing is back to normal.
The bug must be with the DNS settings, it must some how not be sending them through the router correctly, like it use to on Mac OS 10.3. Hopefully Apple will fix it soon.
