    Does your cpanel provide you with the exact location of this link?

    If you know the exact location you could download the specific webpage to your machine using FTP, remove the link, then shoot the file back online.

    If you're using a CMS and the link is contained with a user comment for example, you will need to do it via your back-end.

    Not sure if that answers your question. A little more information would be helpful.

    In your post title, you say you've got a link to your site.
    In your post, you say you have a link to an extenal url.
    Which is it?

    If there's a link you didn't put there, check your database as it would have to be stored there because of another user spamming it. Just goto phpmyadmin and search for it there.

    Yes, if you could define "unwanted links" a little better, that would be good!

    Because even on my browser, for example in Liquidlen's post he mentions the the phrase "Pop up ads". My browser automatically turns that phrase into a "link" that takes me to a site to remove "pop up ads".
    As well as the phrase he used "pop-up blocker" which automatically becomes a link to a site for Stopzilla.
    This is a browser "help" thing that is built in to the new IE. Anyhoo, for a pop up blocker for IE, use the google toolbar.

    So since the title says LINK TO your site .. I am assuming your seeing this in the logs as the referer .. in short "you can't" best you can do is contact the site owner and ask to remove your link from his page.
