Does anyone know of a free service that will show you who is linking to your site? Google claims to have this - using link:domainname - but it does not return any info for my domain.

Any sites that offer a service like that would be very helpful.

Does your hosting provide some type of statistics, most do. They run off the server logs and will show the referrers.

Well that is not true - I have seen other links on other sites that point right to us - so the fact that it does not return anything is off for some reason.

You are right, googles link:site.com only includes links pointed directly at the domain. So a link to site.com would show, but a link to site.com/greatpage.html would not. It also only shoes the links from sites it has crawled, those that haven't been crawled or have been banned would not show up.

I think your best bet is to get some type of website statistics and watch the referrers.
