    Its not exactly link building, but link monitoring

    I have always found that Google does not report backlinks accurately, thesearch modifier

    Code:
    link:mysite.com/page1.html
    doesn't always bring back the full amount of backlinks in Google indexed pages, I have found that if you add a second modifier, you get a more realistic picture, try

    Code:
    link:mysite.com/page1.html -site:mysite.com
    This will show external links to your site or page

    Why not use Yahoo Site Explorer instead?

    :) As in using linkdomain:mydomain.com, right ?

    Actually, using babypar's search parameters might also yield interesting results in Yahoo, i.e.

    linkdomain:mydomain.com -mydomain.com

    What other ways have you folks used, that you're happy with :p ?

    hi

    using google for backlinks does not yield favourable results so using yahoo is a much better and a viable option

    use the link command there

    hope that would help:):)

    thanks,
    ankur

    Google doesn't give you the correct info on purpose. It believes people will try to screw up its search algorithms.

    But isn't that the reason why we are all here?

    I prefer yahoo site explorer to see the amount of backlinks,

    All know that google is pretty stingy when it comes to sharing how many backlinks you currently have.
    Go look at google webmaster tool, you can find the backlinks "candidates" for your site.

    I personally prefer opensitexplorer - much more accurate but it is a paid solution unfortunately.
