Allow link: syntax

Syntax: a Yes/No button

This controls whether to allow the link:URL query syntax in a search, to find results that link to the given URL. No space may appear before or after the colon, nor in the URL (unless URL-encoded).

For example, the query:

link:http://www.example.com/dir/page.html

will list all results that link to http://www.example.com/dir/page.html.

Combining a link: clause with any other clause in the query (e.g. keywords) may reduce search performance, due to possible post-processing. For this reason, Allow Post-Processing (here) might need to be enabled as well for such queries.
