    If you would have searched this on yahoo, you would have gotten first 1000 external backlinks pointing to site.com

    Code:
    linkdomain:www.site.com -site:www.site.com
    Now it doesn't work anymore. Anybody knows if this is permanent? Is Yahoo kicking us in the balls?

    It isn't working on the main yahoodotc0m site. It works fine on foreign Yahoo domains. The main domain problem started more than a week ago for us, so it may be that this change is going to stick. Too bad.

    I did some reading. It is due to the switch to using Bing's data for search results. This means we can expect it to stop working on all locales soon. :(
