Yahoo Backlinks Update

Yahoo! has updated the backlinks they show in their link counts.

As Google generally only shows a small percentage of the total number of links we have always used Yahoo! to get a better idea of where we, our clients, and the competition stand.

If you’d like to check your backlinks on Yahoo! you have to do it slightly different than on Google. Whereas on Google you have to enter “link:www.yourdomain.com” into the search field, on Yahoo! you have to enter “link:http://www.yourdomain.com”. If you forget to enter the “http://” it’s not going to work.
