I suppose you could go to AltaVista, manually enter a search for
link:theURL and -host:yourSite to find all backlinks not including
your own links, then copy the resulting query string and put that
as an HREF in your page. That's just off the top of my head -- you
should check the help pages there for the correct syntax.
