Also use the same syntax in Yahoo, which will return more results. However,
links to self (internal) will be included among the results.
I never knew that alexa.com did something similar.... until now. However,
while I know about related sites, I can't find anything for backlinks, as
suggested elswhere in this thread. Moreover, "link:" is an operator which I
know is not supported by MSN. Ever since Alexa accepted a payment to move to
leave Google and take MSN (with a promotional statement), I no longer care
for them. Perhaps neither should you... *smile*

They are paying off Web hosts as well, as means of manipulating figures.
