    Like the thread title says, can you?

    I'm sorry if this very noobish but I couldn't find a definite answer from doing a google search.

    Much of it was old and outdated (on forums like DP, webmasterworld, etc) and no one in thread of those sites seemed to know the answer either.

    I'm looking to combine adv ops like "allinurl:" and "allinanchor:" into one query.

    I want to find websites that have my keywords both in their domain name and in the anchor text of backlinks.

    Can someone show me what that would look like?

    For example, if the query worked the way I wanted it to, I would type:

    allinurl: financial planning allinanchor: financial planning

    And it would show me all websites that have the phrase "financial planning" anywhere in their URL and "financial planning" in the anchor text of at least one backlink to their site.

    Can this be done?

    Sadly no. I don't know of any way to get more than one of those to work at a time.

    you can do "OR", but not "AND"

    Code:
    allinurl: financial planning || allinanchor: financial planning
    
    It's a "this or that" rather than "this and that"

    Hi all!

    I think the link that kaliuyuga is trying to point you to (it doesn't work if you scramble (g**gle) a redirect link) is:

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/help/operators.html
    Hope this helps.

    Cheers! :)

    BTW - Thanks to pollfactory!
