I am sure many of you have seen this in the past, I have but I have never really seen a thread on the weirdness of Yahoo!'s linkdomain command. So I decided to start one over at Search Engine Watch Forums. What is the issue?

Besides for the fact the Yahoo! API returns completely different results for the command as compared to when you use the same command at

Doing the search at returns different results as well. For example, I did this search within a few minutes of each other, same exact search.

Now that isn't too bad, but when I do the search when logged into Yahoo! MyWeb, I get a huge spike in numbers.

I posted the forum thread at Search Engine Watch Forums.
