Subject: Finding Links to a Site
February 3, 1999
Someone just sent me this wonderful information:
>Today in class I learned about a new search feature in the Alta Vista
>Internet search engine. Try it yourself!
>1) Type the URL "www.altavista.com" into Netscape or Internet Explorer.
>2) Enter "link:www.signwriting.org" as a search string.
>3) Click on the Search button.
I had never tried this before, so I went to Altavista and followed the
There are 120 other web sites that link to our SignWritingSite listed there!
This is a wonderful feature in Altavista, because it gives a chance to
learn about other web sites that have chosen to place a link. This means
that those web sites are most likely related to deafness or sign language
or literature...so I visited some of the sites listed there. I had never
heard of many of them. And they are wonderful sites, filled with
information. I appreciate their links. Some of them are in a Scandinavian
language, some in German, and one in Dutch. Very exciting.
So if any of you want to find who has linked to your own web sites - try
this - it is fun!
