I know that when you type url:www.acterna.com
into google, the results show you the links from your site. However, this does not work on other engines, is there a universal code to use or someway of doing this in other SE's?

I assume that you mean links to your site, not from. There is no universal code and most engines can't tell you about links into your site from other sites, but there is a handy tool at SearchEngineWorld:

HI, thanks for the response, but I was asking about how many times my site is listed in a seach engine. For example go to google.com and type in:
URL:www.yourdomain.com you will see how many times you are indexed in that SE.

Thanks,

Paul

Aha! How many pages you have in the engine. I see. I don't know of any such tool, although I have been looking. 6 months ago I suggested to Brett Tabke, who owns WmW and SEW, that it would be nice to have something like that, but he hasn't created it yet. I am doing this manually myself, picking out 5-8 engines that are really important to each customer. Again, most engines don't have facilities for that kind of search.

Your assumption that url: mydomain.com will show the number of pages that you have in Google is not quite right, since Google will exclude multiple occurrences from the same site and include external sites that contain the url.

Different search engines have different ways of finding out how many pages you have in the search engine. Many use URL:mydomain.com. Some require URL:http://www.mydomain.com. Some others you have to go to the Advanced search page and enter a keywork in one field and your URL in another. Still others you have to do a search on mydomain.com and then select "more pages from this site." It is a pain in the neck, but worth looking to see what they require.

I hope this answers your question.

How about "keyword site:mysiteurl"? That seems to find those pages on your site that are in Google. The problem is, for it to work you have to have a keyword that is contained in every single one of your pages. Just "site:mysiteurl" does not work, you need the keyword. Still, I don't think it's a problem, slap some generic disclaimer at the bottom every page and there ya go.

But I guess this is not news to most of you.

For Google, try using allinurl:yourdomain (it will ignore the dot com, so you don't need it)

After it gives you the results, click on the link at the bottom that says "Repeat the search with omitted results included."

That should give you an accurate count of the number of pages indexed.

For AltaVista, use host:yourdomain.com

Exite use site:yourdomain.com

For domains with generic words, a slightly improved workaround is:
allinurl:genericword.+com

This will strip out some of the irrelevant results. It's not perfect, but it's an improvement.

Paul, I belive that when is not true that when you type url:yourdomain.com google will show how many times your site is indexed.
My site, [snip] is indexed by google's spider many times, but when you check url:mydomain.com you will see only the result of the latest spidering. However, if you type just mydomain.com without url google will show multiple indexes of the same site, Furthemore, if you check their cach files for those pages you will find out that they are the result of many spidering.
