    there are two text boxes.
    Type it in the one on the very top where it says "Explore URL"
    This allows you to get the backlink report and export for any url

    If you don't want to spend any money, here is a better way to do it that will find you more links and still not cost you anything;

    1) Download "SEO Spyglass" free version.

    2) Enter your url in Spyglass and let it find all the links.

    3) Highlight everything and press ctrl + c

    4) Open excel and press ctrl + v

    Then you'll have all of the Spyglass data in your excel file and you can then do whatever you want with it.
