    Can any one explain me more about the link colon command?

    I would like to learn more about it.

    Supposedly it has something to do with locating all YOUR inbound links from other sites.

    Anyone using this tech?

    http://www.googleguide.com/advanced_operators.html#link

    link: The query link:URL shows pages that point to that URL. For example, to find pages that point to Google Guide?s home page, enter:
    [ link:www.googleguide.com ]
    Note: According to Google?s documentation, ?you cannot combine a link: search with a regular keyword search.?
    Also note that when you combine link: with another advanced operator, Google may not return all the pages that match. The following queries should return lots of results, as you can see if you remove the -site: term in each of these queries.
    Find links to the Google home page not on Google?s own site.
    [ link:www.google.com -site:google.com ]
    Find links to the UK Owners Direct home page not on its own site.
    [ link:www.www.ownersdirect.co.uk -site:eek:wnersdirect.co.uk ]

    yeah, it is supposed to show all of the links to your site indexed by google. I don't use it because it never seems to be correct. I have sites that show nothing when doing link: but others that show 3-4 when really over 500-1000 links are there.
    You're better off searching for your link in quotes "http://yourlink"
