Ever want a way to quickly check all your .edu backlinks, or backlinks from a specific site? Yahoo! now allows you to do so with the linkdomain command. It is simple, just use the follow syntax linkdomain:www.rustybrick.com inurl:edu to check all your backlinks from .edu sites or linkdomain:www.rustybrick.com site:www.seroundtable.com to find all the backlinks from this site to rustybrick.com. And an other useful feature, is to use the allinanchor to find out who is linking to you with particular keywords, for example linkdomain:www.seroundtable.com allinanchor:blog (doesn't seem to support allinachor after a second look). Outstanding!
I am pretty sure this is new, as is Shawn, who discovered it and posted a thread about this at DigitalPoint Forums. He named the thread Yahoo Allowing Operators With Link Functions. I believe Yahoo! upgraded the command to facilitate the up and coming, Yahoo! Site Explorer product, like they recently did last week with making the link command more accurate. I have not received an official response from Yahoo! about this change, as of yet.
