Is there an alternative to using the removed 'site:' command anymore to see competitors page counts?

Sorry if this is redundant. I forgot how much I used it.

I'm not seeing that it's been "removed"... unless you're searching by a specific time range.

I can't find any reference on the web to suggest it has been removed. Have I missed some recent news?

The operator has never been accurate, but that's a slightly different discussion.

Did you by any chance leave a space between the colon and the domain name? That breaks the syntax of the command... turning it into a search for the word "site" plus the domain name.

It's a common error, and can produce some unexpected results, but they're not generally related to what you'd get on a site:domain operator search.
