Pointing Webmaster Queries to Site Explorer

Yahoo! Search blog: Pointing Webmaster Queries to Site Explorer

A lot of webmasters use Yahoo! Search to get page and inlink data about
their site, using 'site:', 'link:', 'linkdomain:' queries. Starting last night,
we are redirecting all queries of this nature to the
Site Explorer results pages, so
that you can benefit from this tool's additional features.

To reiterate, the following types of queries will be redirected:

site:ysearchblog.com
link:http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000341.html
linkdomain:ysearchblog.com

All other queries, such as the ones below, will not be
redirected:

ysearchblog.com
ysearchblog
site:ysearchblog.com webmasters
(looking for ysearchblog posts mentioning webmasters)
link:http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000341.html Danny Sullivan (looking
for links to the article mentioning Danny Sullivan)
linkdomain:ysearchblog.com site:yahoo.com (looking for links to ysearchblog
from within yahoo.com)

Yahoo Site Explorer is developing into a decently robust tool comparable to Google's Webmaster Tools. Both resources are very valuable to webmasters and search experts alike.
