An incoming link is another name for backlink, so the two articles should be merged. Fmccown 13:21, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
So basicly both the Backlink web page article and the Incoming link web page article say that: A backlink or incoming link is a link from one website or webpage to another website or webpage. --18.104.22.168 21:03, 21 May 2006 (UTC)
rm from article
I removed the following sentence from the article:
- .Other sites that can help you maintains your back links are 1234directory open directory and Dmoz open directory
I've never heard of using these sites to "maintains" "back links." They are sometimes used to create back links, though I must say I don't know 1234directory. If someone can cite a reputable source and cares to fix the grammar and punctuation, feel free to add this back in. JordeeBec 23:18, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Why are related links being deleted form this article? This article lacks the detail the links had.
- You can get information about linking at WP:EL.--The Magnificent Clean-keeper (talk) 22:05, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Problems with definition
Some knowledgeable person should describe this in terms a non-web geek can understand.
1) What is an "incoming link" or a "link received by a web node"? This definition seems almost circular. Give some examples of how one web site sends a link to another. When does this happen? Please describe this so an ordinary person with a basic understanding of the web can understand.
2) Please incorporate the terms "external site" and "target site" in the definition, rather than placing these terms near the end of the article.
3) Please differentiate this term from "linkback" as they both sound similar.
