    What are the equivalent search operators for Yahoo, for the following Google Advanced Search Operators?
    SEMrush
    site:
    link:
    inurl:
    allinanchor:

    Do equivalents for these all exist in Yahoo?

    Not sure about the others, but the closest you will get to the link: operator in Yahoo is linkdomain:

    Pretty sure that only site: works and the other do not. As Shawn stated, linkdomain: is valid as well. I believe there are others out there. Someone should compile a list.

    That's what I was hoping we might do in this thread.

    I already knew that site: and linkdomain: were valid in Yahoo, but I was hoping someone would post a list of all the equivalent Yahoo commands.

    Isn't it amazing how little is known about Yahoo search. Everyone has been so totally fixated on Google for so long.

    There are really no Yahoo tools. I asked in another thread today about Yahoo paid submission and apparently very few people know anything about it. And Yahoo is supposed to be the Google alternative. Very interesting situation.

    Sure, do some research and write a decent article and I'll publish it.

    But you can't use "eh" in it. The rest of the world will never understand, you know.

    Here are a few for starters Bob:
    site: this allows one to find all documents within a particular domain and all its subdomains.
    Example: site:yahoo.com

    hostname: this allows one to find all documents from a particular host only.
    Example: hostname:autos.yahoo.com

    link: this allows one to find documents that link to a particular url.
    Example: link:http://autos.yahoo.com/

    url: this alllows one to find a specific document in our index.
    Example: url:http://edit.autos.yahoo.com/repair/tree/0.html

    inurl: this allows one to find a specific keyword as part of indexed urls.
    Example: inurl:bulgarian

    intitle: this allows one to find a specific keyword as part of the indexed titles.
    Example: intitle:Bulgarian

    Yep. That's what I thought.

    You win two (heck, make that 10) tickets to the South Mountain baby buggy race this coming Saturday... :D
