Yahoo gets LinkedIn

Yahoo gets LinkedIn on CraigKiessling.com

So I was working on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Progress reports for the site and checking CSKnet’s stats on Yahoo… (Website now dead)

Yahoo!: Search Engine Domination?

And found that Yahoo is getting LinkedIn…In more ways than one.

I wanted to see who Yahoo thought was linking to “craigkiessling.com,” and to remove consideration of links from “craigkiessling.com.” (Links to a site from the same site are internal links, not inbound nor incoming links)

So off to www.yahoo.com I went with my Search Engine queries. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts, I hit gold and my query was this: “linkdomain:craigkiessling.com -site:craigkiessling.com

Voila! Yahoo! pulled up my profile from LinkedIn.com, extracted the relevant data, and displayed it within its SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages).

This search engine actually “searched”.

Rarely I say this, so…Nice job, Yahoo!
