Ongoing Issues with Incoming Links (3 posts)

    I have this URL in my settings as indicated by many other posts:

    http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?hl=en&scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss&partner=wordpress&q=link:http://www.chriscolotti.us/

    However nothing ever shows up. I can search Google Blogs and entries DO some up, but when you put this string in a browser you get:

    FEED FOR UNKOWN FILE NAME.

    Others have said this string works for them so I am completely confused. I go have google XML site links, and again doing a google blog search returns results.

    A search for "link:http://www.chriscolotti.us/" in Google Blog-search results in no pages. This may be the cause of your problems. Try it out and see for yourself.

    Sorry if the answer is too obvious (and thus often wrong).

    Remember; incoming links are not your indexed pages - it is websites linking to you (and Google seldom reports more than 5-10% of all incoming links - probably due to dataminers).

    Interesting because I do know of places where I am linked from other bloggers as well as other sites. I was not clear on the whole string I was only focussed on the http://www.xxxxxx part I did not actually notice the link: portion. Ah well was not sure if there was a way to optomize for that.
