When I use the Google link:www command - how do I filter out results (pages) which are from my own domain? For example -- when I type link:www.widgets.com I see 1,000 results. 500 of these are my own site's pages. What qualifier should I use to see only the inbound links from other's sites? I've tried link:www.widgets.com -inurl:www.widgets.com
but this returns "Your search - link:www.widgets.com -inurl:www.widgets.com - did not match any documents.

>> Not really the "link backs" I am looking for.
I doubt you'll find the backlinks you're searching for using Google. The results returned really leaves alot to be desired. Seems they are only displaying a sample of the lowest quality backlinks they can find for a domain.

It shows who is linking to you. If you're in the ODP, many of them will be clones. A lot of them will also be those pseudo SE's/directories/whatever. What are you hoping to see, just the ones you have recip links with?
If I actually understand what you're trying to do, I can't see how G can manage it. It's a thought though - maybe have a command showing all the sites that a domain exchanges links with, "linkback:www.example.com".
