Hi,

One of my new website has BL's in MSN (using "link:http://www.domainname.com" command)

But for the same website it says "Site not found" when I try "site:http://www.domainname.com"

How can "link:" command work and "site:" command can not work for the same domain?

Have any one noticed something strange like this before with MSN?

The full syntax for advanced searches is at: [search.msn.com...]

(Check out some of the allinanchor commands btw)

It is, of course, very possible that you have no pages in the index, but many pages seen as linking to your site. If your site is not indexable, or dropped, then it doesn't mean MSN can't see the links to it.

hmm...this point never struck my mind!

I think I should go back check my pages again. The pages were crawled two weeks ago but for some reason it is not indexed.
