I must say, I’m a big fan of BackTweets. It’s a great way to track mentions of your site on Twitter.
Just type in the URL for your site (e.g. http://chicagotribune.com, http://statesman.com) and, BackTweets will find folks who have linked to your page, and it even plows its way through shortened URLS, given its support.
Use this to:
- Check to see who’s linking to you; it couldn’t hurt to drop them a quick thank-you Tweet. Also, if you re-Tweet them, it won’t look like you’re pushing out content all the time. After all, they are linking to you, so it’s good to RT anyway.
- See who’s linking to your competition. Now steal them away.
What other uses do you see for BackTweets? Have you found anything better?
