Abstract: From a user's perspective, hypertext links on the Web form a directed graph between distinct information sources. We investigate the effects of discovering ‘backlinks' from Web resources, namely links pointing to the resource. We describe tools for backlink navigation on both the client and server side, using an applet for the client and a module for the Apache Web server. We also discuss possible extensions to the HTTP protocol to facilitate the collection and navigation of backlink information in the World Wide Web.
