Have you ever wondered who's really reading your latest blog post or story you've published online? Are people posting your story to Facebook or other social networks? Are you being talked about, and if so, how much?

There is a new, easy-to-use tool that now allows you to track a link on Twitter. It's called backtweets, and it lets you instantly discover what's happening to your content. Simply type in a URL and click on search. You'll get a real-time list of all the people who have posted your link on Twitter.

Be sure to try the advanced search option, which not only allows you to search on a specific URL, but also for dates within a designated time period. You can track your results via email alerts, too!
