Now you can quickly see what your website is linking or what quality sites your competition is linking to.
Just go to [live.com...] and enter in linkfromdomain:YOURSITE.COM. Make sure to not include www or any other subdomain.
Here is the results for outgoing links from webmasterworld.com:
The first one I saw I thought maybe a business I link to went out of business and their website got picked up. But then there were many spam type entries deeper in the results. I have a finite number of outgoing links and I know pretty much all of them. And I don't link to any of these sites. Very weird.
This is an awesome tool - works great for few of my sites.
I didn't even know that I have so many outgoing links...
Does anyone know if this is showing the outbound links as referenced by the URLs in them on the domain you're querying... or is this showing links to the final recipient domain?
I actually hope the later for just the reason I mention in the opening paragraph.
Google.com - 10,599,326 Pages @ 10 Results per page
MSN.com - 1,009,106 Pages @ 10 Results per page
Apple.com - 126,761 Pages @ 10 Results per page
AOL.com - 3,133,919 Pages @ 10 Results per page
Yahoo.com - 5,126,297 Pages @ 10 Results per page
Someone's outbound links are someone elses inbound links.
Given that a large amount of the algorithm is dependant on linking patterns.... go figure.
Again, not saying that any of the information revealed to the public via any of the commands is accurate, just making a statement that the more pages / links you have indexed in your DB, the chances are that your results will be a better.

It would be great if they listed the page where the link came from! not that realy would be cool.
Perhaps you linked to a site which was bought and is now being redirected to a spam site.
Exactly! I just skimmed through the results, found one of those and removed it.
Very useful for that purpose and to get an idea of just how many pages I link to.
