Do you ever check to see who’s linking to you?
I think one of the great things about having a blog on your own domain and using WordPress to run it is the ability to easily find out who’s linked to you recently just by checking your dashboard.
Of course, the WordPress dashboard gets it’s recent links to your site from Technorati, so even if you are using a free blog platform you can check who’s been linking to you by creating an account and adding your site to Technorati. You can also do a Google search by putting this phrase “links: ” in front of your full site url.
I run several blogrolls and my sites are also listed on several blogrolls so I end up seeing new links each day.
Do you occasionally visit the sites that you’ve found linking to you? I do. I don’t always leave a message, but I visit quite a few of them. I’m also thankful for all of the links I seem to be receiving too.
