Is the linkfromdomain operator accurate?
It's showing more links than I have.

When I use the linkfromdomain operator it first shows about 10 times more links than I think I have, then as I go through the results it reduces to about twice as many until I get to the last page, then it just says "991-1,000 of 1,000 results"

I did a spot check and I don't see any links that I didn't put there, so I'm guessing that the tool either overestimates the number of links that I have or there are 15,000 links on my site that I didn't make...anyone know which?

I noticed something similar [webmasterworld.com] the other day.
On the first try it show 66,000+,
on the second try it showed 34,000+,
on the 3rd try it showed 8,400 +/-

I ran it 3 times because the first two numbers were so crazy high.

Okay, thanks ken_b, I think it's just a crazy over-estimate, but I'll do some extra checking around the site anyway, can't hurt...
