Interpreting the results
The above example shows that total amount of links pointing to the http://www.devshed.com home page is 230,230. This includes duplicated links (multiple links coming from the same domain). The Yahoo Site Explorer API provided 100 back link samples, and according to the analysis, 19 out of 100 are unique. Using these statistics, the estimated back links coming from unique domains is 43,744.
The tool also provides the list of sample unique domains linking to the devshed.com website. With this data, you can determine whether or not those back linking domains are relevant to your domain. If they are not related, and only a few unique domains link to the site, then you need to work hard to increase your link popularity using techniques such as link baiting and others to raise your visibility.
