SEO Tip #2: Know your backlinks
Page Rank is determined by something called backlinks. Backlinks are, simply put, the number of links going back to your website from other websites on the internet. There is no doubt that this is one of the most important factors in SEO today. You need to actively pursue getting more quality backlinks if you plan to succeed with SEO. Luckily, there are hundreds of ways to get more backlinks.
However, the more important question is, how do you know how many backlinks you have? There is no way to know for sure. Some search engines might have indexed a bigger portion of the websites out there than another search engine, for example. The trick is to choose one method and then stick to that method when comparing metrics across different sites.
We recommend: Open Site Explorer
OpenSiteExplorer.org will allow you to easily enter any website adress and see exactly how many backlinks they have and where these backlinks are located. Very useful, very fast and a great way to check and compare many of your sites consistently. It's also very useful to see how many links your competitors have, and more importantly, where their links are showing up.
