Who's talking about you in their blog

To find out who's linking to you in their blog posts, go to http://blogsearch.google.com. Then type your url into the box and click "search blogs." You'll see a search page that lists all recent blog posts that link to you.

If you want regular updates/notifications on who's linking to you, you can subscribe to the RSS feed of this search page just like you would subscribe to any other web page. I use Bloglines, so I just right-click anywhere in the page and choose "subscribe," but if you use another type of RSS reader you can get the url of the RSS feed in the left margin of the search page.

One tip for blogspot users, you should actually do 2 subscriptions, one with "www" and one without, because people frequently use the unnecessary "www" when linking to you. For example, I search for people linking to http://www.salsainchina.blogspot.com as well as http://salsainchina.blogspot.com.
