    Sorry for the noob question but how do you check how many your site has backlinks and what they are? Traffic Travis doesnt seem to produce a list, don't know why

    You can use scrapebox (not free) or to give you a general idea use Yahoo Site Explorer (free but limited to 1000 links).

    Open Yahoo.com
    and then type
    linkdomain:siteyouwanttocheckbacklinks.com
    and press enter.
    It shows how many backlinks a website has.

    If you are broke - yeahoo or the free version of Spyglas.

    But do yourself a favor and get the pro version when you can afford it. Really a time saver.
