Using Advanced Search Operators

Today, Rand posted an entry about linking together search operators:

So I’m playing around with the MSN operators as per my post from last week and I stumble upon the holy grail of link searches

I’ve been doing the same types of searches over at Yahoo with the linkdomain commands for some time now, but never really tested out the MSN operators until Rand brought them up for discussion on his site.

The main benefit of using MSN over Yahoo for this is the inanchor operator. Yahoo currently doesn’t support the inanchor operator so you are partially limited.

My take on the holy grail, something like this:
inanchor:seo inbody:search inbody:engine inbody:optimization linkdomain:mattcutts.com linkdomain:seobook.com -linkdomain:seomoz.org

Then go one step further, take the domains from that list and see which ones are linked to by searchenginewatch.
site:searchenginewatch.com linkdomain:domainfromlist
