Ask Jeeves and Google also have a number of these. Gary Price just did a big look at the new ones on Ask Jeeves in Ask Jeeves Sharpens Its Focus. Google's guide is here.

It's good to see Yahoo using some of the technology the bought (in this case both Altavista and AlltheWeb had this before, I think AltaVista actually pioneered it).

Interesting why Yahoo! can find so many more back links than Google? 147 on Yahoo vs. 27 on Google. Could be a database issue?

Yahoo's linkdomain includes all kinds of links which don't have enough PR for Google to display within the Google link command.

When I tried the Yahoo linkdomain command - in amoung all the SERP scraper pages, DMOZ republishers etc - I found a gem - a link from a Russian blog site - he'd seen a press release, and as we have similar names - he'd linked to my site!
