What it does
LinkedHot is an application that allows webmasters and others to check the link popularity of any given site by checking the number of inbound links that the site has from popular search engines. Simply enter the URL of the site you are interested in, click “submit”, and the LinkedHot engine quickly calculates the number of incoming links that the site has from Google, Yahoo, del.icio.us, Digg, Stumpleupon, Reddit, Technorati, and others. Since many search engines use link popularity as a factor for determining page rank, this is a quick and easy way for webmasters to check how their site, or the competition’s site, is doing.
In their own words
“LinkedHot is a free Webmaster tool for checking a web site link popularity among well known social sites. Unlike most common link popularity web sites, LinkedHot uses the links from some of the most well-known web 2.0 social sites.”
Why it might be a killer
This is one more practical tool that webmasters will be happy to add to their box. The engine can be used for tracking how you are doing and also to give you hints on what you could be doing better.
Perhaps the only complaint is that during testing, the engine was a tad bit on the slow side, taking almost a full minute to generate results. Will they be adding other sites into their search?
