A recent visit into Google's Webmaster Tools has brought a new section to my attention which I would imagine would be of much interest to SEOs: Internal and External links.

The table of Internal links seems interesting - a listing of pages on your domain that have links pointing to them from other internal pages. But where I think this section shines is with the external links - Essentially it is a listing of pages within your domain that have links pointing TO THEM from other sites. Not only that, but it is a detailed listing of these external pages along with the date a backlink was last found.

For those of you who are curious exactly how Google calculates the link: data ... this is an eye-opener!

I run DaniWeb. I coded (and currently maintain) the site from scratch using PHP/MySQL/jQuery and grew it into a thriving community of over 1 million IT professionals and 10 million visitors a month, making it not only one of the largest social media websites in its niche, but one of the largest publications on the web to date. I sell advertising. I host annual events throughout Manhattan during Internet Week, Advertising Week and Social Media Week which each see an average of over 1000 attendees. I host a bimonthly meetup group for techies on Long Island and eastern Queens. I speak on panels at search engine conferences. I run a brick-and-mortar coworking community for the tech industry in Queens, NY. I multitask. I consider myself a platform creator and a community builder. I'm a super-geeky programmer with a passion for Internet marketing. I am not for hire.

But exactly this option isn't working fine...

In this article explains it: Error in Google Webmaster Tools

Also there is a online tool to count and view the real amount of pages that links to any site: Who links to me
