Hi All

Is it possible to find where the links to my site are?

I've heard that there is a way to use search engines by typing in linkdomain:"your site" but it doesn't seem to work, yet I know I have links out there.

I'd like to find any that I didn't know about.

Thanks for any help. :)

Kitty, try using link: yourdomain. It's not a precise science I'm afraid, and I know of lots of links to my site that don't show up.

That's a tricky question.

In Google it's the link: operator. But it reports erratically. It's most likely that it won't know of links to your site if both of thse conditions are not fulfilled:

1) you site is already well indexed.
2) the sites that link to you are already well indexed.

Try the link checker tool from oy-oy.eu/google/links/ but please be careful not to overuse it - Google tends to block it altogether from accessing the datacenters if it happens too often.

It wil report how many links exist from each of the major known datacenters.

Interesting. I tried 'links:' and it returned 104 links for my site, whereas 'link:' (without the 's') returns 147.
Funny ol' Google (as usual!).... I get 55 with 'link' and zero with 'links'
Where does Google mention that 'links' is a legit operator?
