Every since Yahoo! launched Site Explorer they had dreamed of redirecting any of you who did a link, linkdomain, site command on to Today, reports via Search Engine Watch Forums, Yahoo has done just that.

The thread creator states that when he conducted the search, it brought back a message

Your "linkdomain:" query has been redirected to Site Explorer. You can continue to use normal web search for other queries.

I personally try this out at and it keeps me there. So they may be testing this out on some users. But I know for a fact, that Yahoo! had plans for this move.

Forum discussion at Search Engine Watch Forums.

Update: Yahoo! has confirmed this with me, this is a test some users at Yahoo! will notice when conducting these style of queries.
