Only external links in google
how to make a query?

 9:36 pm on May 23, 2005 (gmt 0)

Probably a stupid question -- how do I query Google for a list of external links to a site?

If I follow the link from info:sitename.com or type in link:sitename.com I get too many internal links from the site itself, impossible to see real links.

"link:sitename.com -site:sitename.com" does not work -- shows no results.

What else can I do?

Bump. So, apparently the question is not that stupid. Anybody knows a solution?

Google doesn't show every backlink to a site. It shows just a sample of them.

Well, right, I know. I'm interested in _reducing_ the amount of what they show.

For instance try link:webmasterworld.com -- top of every page is occupied by internal links. How to get rid of them?

Try this:

link: www.mysite.com -site:www.mysite.com

Notice the space after "link:".

There are some warnings:


Hope it helps.
