Reverse Linking

Have you ever searched online and found almost the right information? Reverse Linking is a good strategy to dig deeper within a search you have already begun, and that has yielded almost, but not exactly, the information you need.

  1. Start with your nearly-but-not-quite-good page or site.  You are going to search who has linked to that page– there is a good chance that those links can lead to to some even better information.
  2. Copy the URL of your nearly-but-not-quite-good page or site into the search field of Google preceded by :link (don’t forget the colon!)
  3. Check out your results.  With luck, you’ll find the information you seek!
