    does anyone know how you find out what linked sites a competitor has. I am wanting to know exacly how many sites certain sites and have and where they are coming from.

    Its not very exact, but you can then go through and try and get links from those same pages which is useful.

    Don't use a Google link query to find competitor backlinks, they only display a very small selection, Yahoo Site Explorer is far more comprehensive,

    https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/mysites

    For example, AD returns 191 links in Google,

    link:http://www.acorndomains.co.uk - Google Search

    In Yahoo you can see 85,000

    https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/search?p=http://www.acorndomains.co.uk&bwm=i&bwmo=d&bwmf=s

    You're only able to export the first 1,000 results, if you need more there are paid services like SEOMoz Linkscape and Majestic SEO

    Better to search in yahoo with this:

    linkdomain: site url but do not forget to choose the option "Except from this domain". You will be able to form a fair concept about the inbound links to your website.
