I know that Google has reported a problem with the site: command and the domains with dash in them but I haven't heard anything about the link: command. Any comments?

Does this mean Google and Yahoo aren't factoring these links in? Why does Google only post a couple of links while Yahoo posts a bunch? Is there a chance that these links will be factored in in the future, thereby causing my rankings to skyrocket? Oh God I hope so.

Well, okay, it may not be broken in the sense that it does, in fact, do what they intend for it to do, but it is broken in the sense that it doesn't do what any reasonable person outside the Googleplex would expect it to do (i.e. display the links that Google knows about for a given page). Rather, it only shows a random selection of the links they know about, and usually a pretty small sample at that.
(Not to mention that just because they know about a link, this doesn't necessarily mean they "count" that link for anything, so even if link: did work the way one expected, it still wouldn't necessarily give one any useful information...)

That's probably a typo above, but just in case anyone is confused, the proper syntax is link: rather than links:

At <snipped url> which practically takes the Google’s query result “link:mysite” and compares it with the previous result, I can see every new links, each day there are 1-2 new links but still the number of indexed links is unchanged…it’s the same as a year ago.

But you'll find search engine optimization is much easier if you stop obsessing about backlinks, especially where Google is concerned. They have openly admitted to not valuing all links. You have no way of knowing for sure which links actually help you with Google.

Google page rank updated yes everyone know that ! but this some strange result is came out.I visited lots of site and found in the case of backlink those having good backlink in last update now they are got less backlink.Even in my site also no changes in the index page and the inner page has got less then.
Anyone has this type of experiences this time ......

And since they're not going to tell us what the selection criteria are ...

For example: i always took it that if you run "link:http://www.site.com" in Google (without the quotes ofcourse), Google will tell you which pages are linking to your home page--NOT which pages are linking to your home page PLUS other pages of your site.
However, i have emailed <company name removed as per guidelines OWG> and this is a reply i got from their support staff...
"If you use the "link:" operator on Google than Google will return web sites that link to the main page as well as web sites that link to sub pages."
You would think they would know since their software is built around the "link:" operator.
Does anyone have any light to shed on this matter?

Also, my website PR dropped from 6 to 4. I was wondering if these two issues were related? Does anyone know if this means that Google has invoked a penalty against my site?
Thanks in advance!
