    hey guys,

    With the Yahoo backlinks number, it counts multiple backlinks from subpages on the same domain,And yahoo only provide 1000 backlinks.

    One BHW member-sweetfunny teached me this:
    Yahoo allows a minus operator to exclude backlinks from entire domains, so after you scrape the first 1,000 you can query again but exclude unique domains gathered on the first run. You can add multiple exclusion queries, example:
    linkdomain:www.yoursite.com -site:www.website1.com -site:website2.com

    Which will give backlinks to your site, but exclude website1 and website2.

    But if we get about 600 unique domains from the first run,should we put like:
    linkdomain:www.yoursite.com -site:www.website1.com -site:website2.com -site:website3.com-----to site:website600.com

    If so ,that sounds a heck of work to put so many links in the query.

    Do you know any other way to do it?

    I am sure there are some EXPERTS in BHW know the tricks to use it properly.Please do share !Much appreciated!

    so this is effectively a way of using Yahoo to find every single backlink?
