A recent posting on Gary Price’s excellent Resource Shelf prompts me to remind you aspiring Google sleuths that use of the ‘link:’ operator in a Google search, used to determine how many site/pages link through to a particular URL, will not show all the links that exist. There are two factors at play here; one is the page rank of the linking page – below a certain unconfirmed level (probably 4) the page won’t appear, and the other is how recently the link has been indexed – links are updated once a month.
