    Checking backlinks from google

    What is the correct method to check the number of your backlinks in Google?

    The queries:

    link: http://www.url.com/
    link:http://www.url.com/
    (That's link: followed by a space and without one)
    link: www.url.com
    link:www.url.com
    link: url.com
    link:url.com

    all result in different number of results.

    Sania-Mirza.in - Fan site featuring the Indian tennis sensation.

    link:www.url.com

    But why would you want to check links in Google? Use Yahoo or MSN to see your links they show a lot more.

    Just wanted to check whether Google showed any increase in the amount of my backlinks since I put up a "Link to us" page :-) :-)

    The best one is probably MSN, they are spending a lot of bandwidth to become the top SE right now. They triple the crawls of Yahoo and Google across most of my sites.

    The correct one is link:www.url.com, but Google doesn't show every site in their database that links to you - Yahoo and MSN show a much higher percentage (if not all).
