If you use OSE or some other tool (majestic, link diagnosis) for back link analysis then you probably have issues with listing information concisely.
I typically work off a few columns:
The problem is many of the URL’s are deep links with long strings. So to trim a url column down to just show the root domain use the following in Excel:
What this does is search cell A1 for all instances of the / character and trim back to the last one after the 8th character (because http:// is 8 characters and you want the one after this).
