it appears to me that link:http://www.domain.de is not the most appropriate syntax, it didn't show the inbound links for my domain which I know for the mostpart.
I tried: link.all:http://www.domain.de which provided more accurate results.
Have a try on it for evaluation, I am interested. ;-)
searchbox: example.com: 23 results, internal plus some "dubious" links
searchbox: www.example.com: 5 results, no internal links
So can we conclude from this that the difference between link.all: command and link: command shows links not given any weight in ranking?
*by "dubious" links I mean links from odp clones, one from a very small private homepage's linklist etc
I don't recognize this specific pattern. For both commands link: and link.all: I have good, valuable links on the SERP such as dubious Links. Some of them are even AOL/Fireball results.
In any case I can confirm that I have high-quality inbound links (e.g. from a customer's site with PR6) on the SERP using the link.all command. Well *gg* FAST is a very special SE.
you can also use the advanced search. Play around with the options - you can even search for IPs. Have fun!
>link: is not operative.
So, that clears up some things discussed here.
BTW: congrats to the new 2 + Bill. index!
Another point I'd love to have some clarification:
Stopwords and size of index. FAST doesn't utilize stopwords. Does that imply you have to store more indexed text as you'd have to when using stopwords? Is that a limiting factor to increasing your index?
