are you trying to find sites that act as a referrer, with users coming to your site from the sother site, or are you trying to find out which sites have your site on their's as a link... your log files won't have information on sites that might have added your site as a link (unless a user from that site went to your site via the link). otherwise, if you simply want to see which sites have sent users to your site via a link within that site, then any good analytics app could provide that to you... peace -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of misterhaan Sent: Wednesday, May 14, 2008 11:59 AM To: nan at nanharbison.com; thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] can you find out who links to your site?
