Yahoo! Link Command More Accurate Says Tim Mayer

And it is all my fault, Tim Mayer said. Basically, I wrote an entry on July 20, 2005 which said that Yahoo!'s link command was funky. Tim said based on that, he had his team make the link command more accurate and report more consistent results. He said, that I was wrong when I reported that Yahoo! Link Count Only Showing Sampling, it is in fact showing a more full account of links, but this time more accurate.

Tim would not get into the details of what is specifically meant about being "more accurate", but we can make some assumptions. One big assumption is that older links that are no longer found are excluded these days from a linkdomain: or link: command at Yahoo! I will go into the threads and let the folks know. Oh, and I am sorry, please do not take this out on me. :)

But you will notice they order the results nicely, example, linkdomain:www.seroundtable.com. The first 10 results are major sites linking to this site.

1. googleblog.blogspot.com 2. www.adstrategist.com 3. www.searchenginelowdown.com 4. www.ysearchblog.com 5. www.searchenginejournal.com 6. www.seroundtable.com 7. blogs.msdn.com/msnsearch 8. www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000069.html 9. blogs.msdn.com/msnsearch/archive/2005/01/18/nofollow_tags.aspx 10. www.cre8pc.com

The list continues and some powerful sites are listed there, maybe in order of linkage power, relevant to this site? :)
