Is there a way to find one specific URL in your backlinks?

I tried link:www.mysite.com site:www.linkingtome.com would work but it doesn't seem to work.

Is there any way of sifting through this for one specific URL of domain that's linking to me?

Do your backlink search and add &num=100 to the end of the url - this will display 100 results per page - do a ctrl-f (or whatever) search and you should be able to find it pretty soon (unless you have 100,000 backlinks). ;)

Hmm. Maybe using the Google API.

Simpler: change your google preferences to show 100 links. Then it's easier to spot a page you're looking for.

Thanks guys, it's just that some of our sites have 3,000 - 50,000 backlinks so it would be really timeconsuming if it was even possible to see more than 1,000 links at all.

Any other ideas?

You would have to use the API. Macromedia has 50,000 links, that's a lotta links...

Hi
The Google Api only gives a 1000 results per day so it may not be adequate either, I'm afraid.
With Kindest Regards

Have you tried...

yourdomain.com site:theothersite.com?

just might work.

or .. goto the page that you look to find in your backlinks .. if it has links to other websites, check their backlinks (if they are less than yours ofcourse) .. if that site is in their backlinks .. most likely you will have it too .. not a confirmed solution .. but simpler one.

Spend 5 mins on the advanced search:
[google.com...]

"Return results where my terms occur" .... "in the url"
