A way to check your backlinks

For those of you who are not veterans of the blogging world and, doubly, who are interested in utilizing my alternative to comments, I offer you the following:

Just enter this into your browser and replace "YOURBLOGNAME" with the appropriate text to find the number of sites that have linked to your blog/site (courtesy of this site).

Either I or someone savvier than I should at some point integrate this into a gadget for Blogger. I don't recall seeing such a thing in the list last I checked and it shouldn't be a difficult implementation.

On a more detailed check, I found two neat implementations of this here and here. You have to scroll down a bit for the latter.
