Searching a way to search within the backlinks

Hello All,

My site exceeded 1300 backlinks so I wonder if there is a way to search within the search results of backlinks for a specific website.

Your help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Usually when I answer a question someone comes along with a much better approach, but I'll risk this one anyway and hope there's a better solution. :)

Set the results in preferences to 100 and then use the browser's "find" for the URL.

Clever thought nancyb. Thanks for the prompt reply. I still wonder whether there is a normal way of doing so. Maybe it would be nice to confirm your fear with a "better" approach...

try...

yourdomain.com site:theotherdomain.com

this check the specific site for your url and from there you can check if it's a hyperlink or not.

Thanks for the feedback Net_Wizard but our domain is like name2othername.com so many backlinks do not use this format but our normal site name.

It seems that your nice approach does not cover all the backlinks that use a text link (the most valuable ones). It more focuses on finding a backlink within a specific domain (which is certainly useful also).

Any other interesting ideas webmasters?
