Ever curious about what other sites are linking to your eHow articles? I was just doing a quick backlink check on one of my websites through Backlink Watch, and it occurred to me to try one of my eHow article URL's. I don't know why I'd never thought of it before.
I can't speak for the accuracy of this tool, but it DOES work to some extent. All of the backlinks that I have posted for my articles show up for each one, as well as many others that I didn't even know were linking to them.
Go to the Backlink Watch website, or any other backlink checking website you like to use, and type in your eHow article URLs to see how many links you've got. You might be surprised at the results.
One of my articles that doesn't rank high in the search engines was making more money than I thought it should have, so I put it in the backlink checker, and found it was linked to from a site with pretty good credentials - which must be where the revenue is coming from.
Have fun checking for your own backlinks!
