    is it possible that the current inbound links of a site change to another site?

    Also how to analyze, how many inbound links and where they from?

    There are a number of tools to determine how many backlinks you have - SEO powersuite has a tool, ahrefs, google webmaster tools and others. I'm not sure what does the best job at the moment. The only way without having access to the accounts that created the inbound links is to simply 301 redirect the website to the other site.

    To analysis your back links, you can use ahrefs or SEO powersuite or opensite explorer.

    Suppose your site "a.com" have 1000 backlinks, and "b.com" have only 10 backlinks. So to transfer those backlinks from "a.com" to "b.com" , you have to do a 301 redirection. it means "a.com" will redirect to "b.com".
    So the site "a.com" will vanish from SERPs

    To do a 301 redirection, you can addd this on your header
    PHP:
    <?
        
    Header"HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" ); 
        
    Header"Location: http://www.new-url.com" ); 
    ?>  
    or you can do the same using htaccess
    PHP:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule 
    (.*) http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    this is my clients site...what if -

    we won't have access to the original website as it's being handed over as part of a trademark dispute, they'll be giving the domain to another company and loose all access to it to be able to 301 to another domain.

    so we'd need to manually contact all the sites and ask them to relink to the new site asap,

    what should I do in order to know how many links our site has?
    and how to pull out all the links?
