One of the ways search engines like Google measures your online clout is by tallying up how many folks link to your website. These are called by two names including incoming links and backlinks and building them means more traffic to your site. You can easily see who’s linking to your site every time you login to do an update.
There’s a handy module on your WordPress Dashboard page that displays other sites that have linked to your post. It’s the Incoming Links module. It’s a great way to see who is helping spread the word for you and what types of sites are interested in your posts.
Hovering your mouse over the title bar results in two actions. A down arrow appears in the right corner. Clicking the arrow minimizes the module. A Configure link also appears on hover. Clicking it allows you to choose the URL that provides this information. By default it is set to a blog search feed from Google. You can choose other search feeds, but it’s likely that Google will offer you the best results.
