    Pretty straight forward, i'm trying to find a way to backtrack a competitors backlinks. Yahoo site explorer and multiple searches do not show any crumbs. Competitor has pr4 with 0 backlinks.. so he's obviously using 301 redirects. How can I find out those redirects.. any ideas?

    I don't think there is an easy way to do this. The nature in which 301 redirects work is not typically visible to people without access to their server.

    I might be wrong but I'm 99% sure that this isn't possible.

    I would second "impossible". It is server side and doesn't show any data to the public.

    You must not be very creative yourself then.

    Maybe alexa will show traffic source.

    Next time someone bothers to think for a second about a question you've asked, whether you like the answer or not - Say thanks and add your comment instead of patronizing those who waste their time on someone with your attitude.

    Noone here owes you nothing.

    One idea is to a reverse dns lookup on domaintools you know the rest - but your going to pay out the rear for the report. You can search your competitors domain and then get a report of other domains they owned and find likely candidates for the 301. Plausible but pricey.
