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

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. ;-)

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.
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?
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?
