    I agree, most spammers do it for financial gain so they are very good at it and very intelligent. It's the internet, you will always have that. It's disturbing but true.

    This is what we really need,all pingbacks are coming to posts, but I've found that many spammers are linking to the home page of any blog, in this situation the owner can't really get the notification, so he can act. A pingback to the home page will solve this problem.

    +1 trackback and pingback are good but they are used by spammers

  5. Exactly, spammers utilize those features. Not the best idea, unless I am missing something.

  6. I have created a plugin that can solve just this problem.

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/incoming-links/

    It will detect links to any page of your website (including homepage, unlike pingbacks) and it has some security features that will prevent most abuses from spammers.

    It's still in beta (just released) so if you have suggestions or see any bug, let me know.

    Will this plugin detect links not found by Ahrefs?

  10. @alanhale Incoming Links Plugin for WordPress will detect links if they have at least 1 visit/click.
    Ahrefs detects links if it happens to crawl the page, they have a big database, but they don't have all web.
