Each search engine has a way to find links TO a specific site, but it is different with each search engine ... you'll have to READ the search instructions at each search eninge to find out exactly how to do it, then FOLLOW the instructions given by each of the engines.
I recommend starting with AltaVista because they have the biggest collection of pages.
