Backlinks, Alexa Rank And Whatever...

Ok computer literate people, what is the meaning of Backlinks? Can someone brief me on this? I tried google-ing it this afternoon out of curiousity cos I wanted to know how many backlinks I have....

Why suddenly I asked about backlinks? Well, as you all know, I am A BIT addicted into blogging, right... and naturally, I like to make some extra income out of blogging too.. but then... I always get some replies from advertisers stating that I need to have more backlinks in my blog. Now what is backlinks? People linking back to us or...... adding our blogs into their blogrolls is called backlinks?

Anyway, this came out when I typed in my URL in the backlinks checker...

Yahoo Backlinks
Google Backlinks
Google PR
Fake PR Checker
Not fake
Alexa Rank
DMOZ Listing
Google Ban Checker
The domain name DOES NOT appear to be banned.
Domain Age
2 Year
Domain Registered Since

So....this table above.. considered nice or not nice? All I know is that the higher PR we have, it "smells nicer"... (sik heong) hahhahaa....


  1. I also dunno. Maybe it means links in your posts to previous posts...or related posts in other people's blogs.

  2. I also dunno. Maybe it means links in your posts to previous posts...or related posts in other people's blogs.

  3. Ooops...dunno what happened. Duplicate comments and under "Anonymous" some more... Tsk! Tsk!

  4. Sounds unfamiliar to me too... Eee.. I ain't a computer savvy...

  5. Like you, all I care is the PR hehe. but it's nice to know the blog stats, what tool did you use particularly? I googled backlink checker and they were just too many, i didn't know which oen to choose =)

    visiting from my other site =)

  6. It is really a great piece of post especially for those related to SEO. Backlinks are the deciding factors of every website's ranking. Alexa ranking also plays an important role in getting a good idea about the competitor sites.

  7. anonymous: me as blurred as u.. :)

    stp: sometimes duplicate comments happens...i also duplicate my own comments in my own posts before :p

    mingna: guess we r not computer geeks.. hehe...

    kero: i tried a few over there.. then only settled for this..

  8. I think it means when people link back to a particular post in your blog. Google loves backlinks, it means that your blog has very useful information so people link back to that information. When you find out let me know! By the way, 400,000 on Alexa is a very good result! Congratulations!

  9. I dunno know oooo.. I dunno know too..thot 'sik heong' is 'eat smell' hahaha..
