Yahoo Toolbar for SEO back link checking

How to check Yahoo backlinks.

From an SEO perspective, a back link is an inbound link to a website. If page X links to page Y, then the back link is the link that exists on page X and points to page Y.

From Google, you can check back links by typing “” where “” is the target website that you would like to check for back links. In other words, all the links pointing to

For some reason and for a very long time, Google does not recognize all back links to a website. At least if you query back links from Google, you will only receive a small fraction of the back links.

One of the benefits of Yahoo is that when you query the Yahoo search engine for back links, you will find many, many more back links to your website.

If you install the Yahoo Toolbar, you get a bunch of cool tools for SEO along with an easy to access window for backlink checking.

  1. The install was rather confusing, as the browser exits all the way midway through the process, but I have used the yahoo toolbar before and really like the features…

    Installation was easy. The instructions were easy to follow and I had no problems. With respect to usage, the toolbar was easy to use and easy to search.

    I have used earlier version of Yahoo toolbar but this version seems much better and has more features. For me, the toolbar installed without any hiccups.

  4. nice toolbar

  5. Although the icons are a little different, I don’t see much difference from the old toolbar. For the installation, it took two attempts to complete the installation properly and then my browser was restarted without warning and without allowing me the option of saving my work. All in all though, no regrets at upgrading to the latest Yahoo toolbar…

    Toolbar has many great features that I will use often. Installation was easy and fast.

  7. Excellent toolbar, user friendly… Very easy process to install this toolbar in your browsers

  8. I like the set up of the tool bar. When I search for things it usually is what I am looking for in the first or second search.

    Very fast installation but makes you restart if you are downloading on firefox browser.

    Rating 9/10

  9. Awesome toolbar with great animations to daily used links. Just love it. :)

    Installation was very fast.

  10. The toolbar has everything I need right there. I like the images and the shortcuts that come on the default version.

    I found the installation overall very easy. My only complaint was that my browser had to restart and I had to re-enter my information to complete the install.

    I really like Yahoo Toolbar and think it’s options are great. It installed fast and was also easy.

  14. I like the toolbar because it provides one click links to my favorite sites such as facebook, ebay, email, weather sites, finance sites, travel sites, etc…

    Also, I already like having the Yahoo search engine better than my previous one. It pulls up more relevant hits.

    It was quick and self-explanatory. No re-starting the computer, just need to close the internet for 30 seconds max.

    My Rating: 10/10

    Toolbar very functional. I would leave off some of the extra buttons by default, such as Facebook, weather etc. This would make the bar look less cluttered.

    Installation and download went rather fast, fast download speed, easy to install. I would recommend this from novice to expert user.
