Internet Search Tip -- Search Backwards? There are times when you are linked to an Internet page and you would like to find similar or related sites. Because Internet page authors like to link to similar sites, you may be able to find links on the page to which you are already linked. But what if the bozo who wrote the page provided no links? You can try a "backward search" for pages that linked to the bozo, and here's how to do it. Go to AltaVista ( and, in the little "search for" box, type in the word "link" (but without quotation marks) followed by a colon (:) followed by a space and then the URL of the site you already have.

For Example, type in the following:


and Altavista will give you a list of several related pages that link to the home page of my Internet site.
