Links: question on google results
how to use links:
The Subtle Knife

 4:22 pm on Sep 6, 2004 (gmt 0)

I've done links: my site on google, and all the resilts

are on "mysite", how do I list all the links which aren't self links.

I though links:mysite -mysite, would show all the links that aren't on my domain, but that doesn't work either.

Can anyone tell how it's done?

I would forget the google link search.... it is only a sample of links and misses high and low pr links in.

Use alltheweb.com instead.

Depending on how long ago your website was first indexed by G, it may not be showing any backlinks yet (allow up to 2 months for G to credit IBL's). Also, the link command will not necessarily show all links to your site. Formerly links: only showed backlinks from PR4 or greater pages, but now it will commonly show PR3 and lower pages as well.
Try typing in your domain name in this format:
.domain. -site:www.domain.com
and you should get a list of all pages in the G index that reference your site. They may not necessarily be links - they may just be a reference to your site without a hyperlink.
