    I'm not certain, but maybe you could do a google search for some exact text on your homepage.

    If the 301 domains are indexed (which I would doubt since they 301), maybe they'd come up in google too.

    The 301 will only redirect the domain, it won't copy the site.

    Xenu Link Sleuth does this. Do a search in g00gle to download the free software.

    well here's a theoretical way to do it. would require some kinda bot to make it practical though.

    1. audit your sever logs and get a list of all the referers of every page visit.

    2. filter out all the referers which are from your own domain.

    3. scrape all links off of all the remaining referer pages.

    4. filter out the links that go to your site.

    5. follow all the remaining links and see if any of them go to your site.

    Hmmm, the response by tacopalypse will only work if you own the domain you are investigating (not all that useful).

    I can think of a couple of methods you could use, however they rely on you building any one of a number of scrapers/bots, and is therefor not all that practical for 99% of ppl and would only be an efficient use of resources if you had many domains you wanted to investigate.

    My friend...It was a joke..sure i tell you and other guys again !

    First and very important:

    the search button is your friend!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    HOW TO FIND 301 REDIRECTS TO YOUR SITE:

    301 redirects are called intermediate links in GOOGLE WEBMASTER TOOLS..

    If there's a link to the user's site that links to URL1 which then redirects to URL2, the link from URL1 to URL2 is now shown as an intermediate link.

    Will check this out!
    Yeah, it would be great to see if someone redirects to my site, but it would be AMAZING to find out what domains redirect to other domains that I do not own ;)
    Lol my bad, I didn't think of looking through your posts :p
    And this would work great for sites in my webmaster tools, but is there anything that would let me see domain redirects on sites I don't own?

    Thanks everyone for replying

    I tried this and it seems that I would need to know the domain that redirects to 'my' domain.
    This is, however, a pretty cool tool to see broken links on your site :)

    Im pretty sure he is trying to investigate competetion and seeing if the current ranked sites are using any 301 redirects to boost SERPs. I would also be interested in a way to find other sites 301'ing

    pretty match every backlink tool uses Yahoo site explorer. Don't bother checking them hoping to find more. Neither Yahoo not Google show 301 redirects ...

    Only tool I know that claims to collect 301 redirects is opensiteexplorer. org by Seomoz.
    But their index is way less then Y and G and you have to be paid member to view all links

    No. I just ran xenu link sleuth, opened the report, clicked redirects and it shows the sites that redirect to the site you analyze. You can use this on sites you do not own.

    I just ran it on a domain that I know has a domain redirecting to it and nothing about 301 shows up.. the domain is not even mentioned.
