How to establish how many pages Ask has indexed

 10:49 am on May 23, 2005 (gmt 0)

Does anyone know how to find out how many pages Ask has indexed on a website?

As we all know Google uses "site:www.domain.com"

So, how does Ask (and Yahoo for that matter) do it?

Reason I ask is that the AskJeeves bot has massively hit my site for the past week, and I'm interested to see if it has paid off in terms of SERPs.

I know it can be easy achieved at the advanced search page [web.ask.com...]

For Ask you can't restrict a search to a particular site without also entering search terms.

site:www.example.com inurl:example.com

is one method. Yahoo is just site:www.example.com, as is MSN.

If you have a word that pretty much appears on all pages, then you can use the site query... for example:

widget site:www.widget.com

It is very likely that you have at least one word that is part of your site name or part of you site's template...
