hi i want to combine the two modifers [link:] and [inurl:]
Actually i want all those pages that have links to a site,say accenture.com,
I can do by [link:accenture.com]
second i want to filter the above result to include only those urls that have .gov . the query for that will be [inurl:.gov]
   now the problem is that both the above queries need to be combined so that i can get all those .gov sites that have links to accenture.com.
does anyone of you have an idea how to combine the above two queries.

thanks

It's not possible to combine these two AFAIK. (You'd probably want to use the [site:] operator rather than the [inurl:] operator too.)

As an alternative, you could try this query though:

[site:.gov "accenture.com"]
google.com/search?q=site%3A.go ...

Try Live Search:
search.live.com/results.aspx?q ...
(but use site: instead of inurl:)

Ionut, that still doesn't work for me. It just returns searches for the phrase "link:www.accenture.com" on all sites on the zdnet.com domain rather than actual links.

Sorry about that, they disabled the link: operator. The recommended option is to use Live Search Webmaster Central, which offers options to refine the backlinks. Unfortunately, the data is only available for site owners.

Also check Yahoo:
search.yahoo.com/search?p=link ...

I tried throwing the AND operator into a Google search with the "link:" operator, but it failed.
