A British company has come up with what it claims to be the first true map of the Web.
The LinkMap will let site owners track inbound links to their sites, and is aimed at deep linking.
The product, from Berkshire-based start-up LinkGuard, is aimed at companies that don't want deep linking - the practice of another site linking to a specific internal page on a Website. LinkGuard says some businesses prefer surfers to go onto their homepage first - to boost their hits, while others are worried about protecting their intellectual property on the Web.
