Hi Experts,

I've used this site a couple of times and it's pretty usefull but I am curious about where they get the data?  Is there a single obvious service that these guys use for their queries or is it aggregated from multiple services?  Any idea?

Here is the URL www.reverseinternet.org

Undoubtedly the information comes from multiple sources, probably mostly from Alexa, Google, Amazon and Clickbank.  They might want to optimize their access - it took more than ten seconds to load the page, so something is wrong on the backend.  If you're interested in your own SEO exercises, you can follow Google guidelines and get very good results.  And if you want even better results, pay for Google Ads - the investment in Google advertising gives a return that is 10X anything you could ever do in print.

re: my comment - they claim to have STORED many million backlinks, hence my suggestion it could be anything on the backend plus what Ray correctly identifies as simple api calls to Alexa and others
