Yahoo Allowing Operators With Link Functions

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by digitalpoint, Sep 6, 2005.

    I have no clue if this is new or not, but this is the first time I've noticed it. Yahoo allows you to use extra operators with link: and linkdomain: functions. For example, sites linking to www.digitalpoint.com that contain edu within the URL:
    SEMrush
    [search=yahoo]link:http://www.digitalpoint.com inurl:edu[/search]

    [search=yahoo]linkdomain:www.digitalpoint.com inurl:edu[/search]

    The bigger problem is that Yahoo does not support (at all) the inanchor: or allinanchor: operators. So it's simply treating it as a normal search keyword and returning pages that contain the word "inanchor" for example. :)
