Backlinks – Displaying Other WebPages That Link to You Post Using Backlinks

Backlinks display other web pages that link to your posts. To enable back links on your blog, go to your Settings │ Comments tab and select Show. This enables you to keep track of other pages on the web that link to your posts. What this means is that it is a way of expanding the comment feature such that related discussions on other sites can be included along with the regular comments on a post.
Let us take for instance, suppose the author of http://www.ourblogtemplates.com writes on a blog post that the author of http://www.btemplates.com finds interesting.
The author of btemplates then goes to his own blog and writes a post on its own about it, linking back to ourblogtemplates original post. Now ourblogtemplates post will automatically show that btemplates has linked to it, and it will provide a short snippet of his text and a link to his post. What it all works out to is a way of expanding the comment feature such as that related discussions on other sites can be included along with the regular comments on a post.
Blogger default templates are already set up with the necessary code for Backlinks. However, if you have a custom template, or one of blogger templates from before this feature was launched, you will need to add the code yourself.
Once everything is set up you will see a new link marked “Link to This Post” next to the comment link for each post. If you click that link you will be taken to the post page, where the Backlinks are all listed beneath the comments. Clicking the triangles next to each link will display a snippet of text from the page linking to you, as well as some author and date information.
If you want to turn off backlinks for individual posts, you can do so. The process is the same as that for turning off comments. Just edit the post in question and change the options that appear below the posting form.
There two sections of template code that relate to backlinks. One section simply creates the links that readers see next to your posts. The other section displays the backlinks themselves. That is the Backlinks Indicator and Display. The get the remaining information for this posts Click here
There you will get all the necessary HTML codes that will be needed to put the backlinks indicator and display on a custom blog or some blogger old templates before the feature was launched.
