Checking incoming links in Fast?

Presumably you can do this right?

Hi,
I've done a little searching but can't find out how to check incoming links on Fast?

I presume this can be done so could someone please tell me how?

Hello,

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. ;-)

Cheers

Hi Bernie, Welcome to WMW

Fast is known to show almost all inbound links when using the link: command.

IMO Link.all shows both internal and external links and therefore not the "pure" external linkpop.

Hello Rumbas,

I think you are right but surprisingly for my own domain link:.... shows 6 inbound-links. link.all:... shows 47 links including all internal links to the homepage PLUS about 22 external links that are not listed with the simple link:... query.

weird, isn't it?

Cheers

Bernie, you're absolutely right.
I've experimented a bit with the different ways of counting links in ATW.
For a very small site, example.com:
link:example.com: 5 results, no internal links
link.all:example.com: 48 results, internal links, all kinds of "dubious"* links

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

Hello Heini,

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.

Cheers Bernie

I've seen that too, even MSN results and cats. A lot of them in fact.

I'm sorry...but where do you type the information for inbound links? On Fast site search?
If someone could spell it out for me as to where to go and what to type in...thanks all!

Linda, AllTheWeb [alltheweb.com] is FAST's showcase and playground for advanced searchers.
You can use the regular searchbox and type
link:www.example.com
link.all:example.com

you can also use the advanced search. Play around with the options - you can even search for IPs. Have fun!

You should use link.all:xyz.com to to get the proper listing. link: is not operative.

Best regards,

Hey Knut - thanks for stopping by!

>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?
