I have just tested a linkdomain command at uk.yahoo.com and it still
worked. Please can you try again?
When Yahoo finally stops its link searches then I think that it is OK
to use the form of search that you wrote but this uses URL citations
rather than hyperlinks. It is a different type of virtual connection
but I think that it is still valid.
