Inbound Link

Definition

A link from a site outside of your site.

Information

Inbound links send visitors to your web site. Generally, this is seen as a good thing. Many sites go to great lengths to achieve as much of this “free” advertising as possible, although a few sites are very particular about where the links are pointing (see deep linking).
