Backlink is the generic wiki term used to describe 'incoming' links to an article, as in: what other articles are linking to this particular page I'm now reading?.

Many, though not all wiki engines support backlinks; and specifically on wiki using the ever-popular MediaWiki software, it is more commonly known as 'what links here' – and is found in the toolbox section of the sidebar, using keyboard-direct command of alt-j, or by wikilink using Special:WhatLinksHere.
