is there an equivalent to link:www.domain.com for checking for links to a site/page in Yahoo?

Using linkdomain:www.yoursite.com seems to return a larger number of results.

link:http://www.webmasterworld.com [search.yahoo.com] - 389,00 results (sometimes 384,000)
linkdomain:www.webmasterworld.com [search.yahoo.com] - 410,000 results

yeah, differences i'm seeing is linkdomain:

a) includes the actual site you're checking (so thats one extra page at least)

b) includes wikipedia content from variety of sources

possibly filters in duplicates?

btw, thanks guys :)

Has Yahoo pulled these type of queries?
The link: command gives me an Oops! as does the linkdomain command. The linkdomain command for WebmasterWorld works with 1 result - this thread. :D

Any clues?

[ link:http://www.webmasterworld.com/ ] works fine for me.

Use a fully qualified domain name.
