Re: whts the difference between "link:" and "link:(space)"

The difference is that one is the correct form. Let's take a look at the two result sets.

[link:www.searchenginewatch.com] returns:

Quote:
Results 1 - 10 of about 3,860 linking to www.searchenginewatch.com
[link: www.searchenginewatch.com] returns:

Quote:
Results 1 - 10 of about 60,300 for link: www.searchenginewatch.com
So you can see that the first instance is the correct use of the link: operator while the second example simply returns a search of the individual terms.
