Yahoo query tools for checking incoming links

I’d been using Marketleap‘s link checking tool for a while, but today began using Yahoo’s query terms because they allow the user to remove internal links from the results.

Here’s what you do:

1. To check the full number of links to a domain use this:

linkdomain:www.mysite.com

2. To do the same but without including backlinks:

linkdomain:www.mysite.com –site:mysite.com

3. To check backlinks to a specific page:

link:http://www.mysite.com/subpage.html

4. And to do the same without including those internal links:

link:http://www.mysite.com/subpage.html -site.mysite.com

Nifty to know for a quick check.
