is anyone else experiencing zero input from the "link:" operator for google alerts......i have experienced this now for weeks...i see the links on the other sites when my keyword alerts come in but google is not reporting the links to me.......and yes i do always check if they are nofollow's thanks

The only oddity I've been experiencing in the last few weeks is that google alerts has only been showing me new pages that I've made on the site that I have the alert set up for. Not useful at all unless I've been making pages in my sleep.
It hasn't shown links from other sites like it used to in the past. I think it's something else that's been broken.

majjk...for me i still have links: setup but nothing is reported (maybe one a month) which is nothing. i have allot of alerts setup as i use this to monitor all kinds of things especially duplicate content...on the alerts i often find fresh links to my sites but the links: operator does not report it.
